Re: difference of Grounding and Bonding

It is specifically aimed at marine industry, while I myself am in the aviation industry (avionics) and we deal a lot with grounding/bonding. https://www.proboat.com/2015/04/the-mysteries-of-bonding-systems-revealed/ Notice this article refers to bonding as <1ohm th...

difference of Grounding and Bonding

Bonding is something that great many folks can't wrap their head around, and understandingly so. I'll take a stab at making sense of it. We all know that any circuit needs a ground in order to work, the deal is that with a simple circuit like a electric motor or light bulb, what we percieve as 'grou...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

the christmas tree symbol is in fact the ground. in a metal structure like a car body or airplane, this would be a ground post screwed or bolted to the metal frame, then all other devices could get their ground locally where they are installed. sometimes the mount screws themselves make the ground. ...

Re: sanding tips from ACBS

here is a youtube of the 'mud-hog' in action, this guy had just purchased a clone of the original National Detroit item. I ask you to watch the 'amount of material' is thrown off that thing, and watch him go around corners, and edges. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iC6cgdJYoFk I know, I used to be ...

Re: sanding tips from ACBS

I'm calling BS on that one......... the first picture was of a air driven fileboard, one of the most useless items to waste money on. Then I read ,,,start with a oribital sander with 100grit, then proceed to 60grit by hand, this is total BS. You should never , I say never, go towards the coarser gri...

Re: Glen-L Moving Sale - One Day Only

So many of us are spread out across the fruited plains, shipping costs might be prohibitive. (how much to ship the canoe?) to Savannah Georgia?

Maybe Craigslist or Ebay is an option.?

Re: Electrical Mystery

There is so many things to ask about, I wouldnt even guess. You need to see just how it is wired up. From what you said so far, you got 2 different power source for the pump. (the float & the switch) How does the light power up? (from hot battery or a switch or a fuse or the float) When the ligh...

Re: OMC 460 King Cobra in Riveria

I have not dealt with the Ford series, however, I did convert a Chevy series from stern-drive to inboard. http://www.glen-l.com/weblettr/webletters-7/wl56-doubleeagle.html Although I did this as a Chevy, you can substitute 'Ford' for 'Chevy' in many of the items in this article. Since the 460 cobra ...

Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

The designer was telling me you dont need the steam, just the heat, he says he only uses a heat gun to bend parts. I tried it, and he is right. I bought a decent heat gun for the task, and then put away all the ...
