I was eyeballing this Milwaukee set but seems a tad expensive.
But at the same time it is 30 pc set and no other brand sells one so complete, most are 20 pc, like this kobalt set: https://www.lowes.com/pd/Kobalt-20-Piece-12-Point-Standard-SAE-and-Metric-Ratchet-Wrench-Set/1000224979 But hell that shits only like $50! And I can easily trade in a broken one at any Lowes right?

But then maybe I want the kind with the flexible head? Those seem to be 2-3X more expensive!?
8 piece set for $90!? Damn is the flex head worth the price?

-The Milwakuee ones do look damn nice but I don't think I can justify the price, but damn I do get more sizes which I love. Worth it for those extra sized not offered by other sets?
-The Kobalt are affordable AND I can easily trade in a broken one or buy a replacement if I lose one. But less sizes, pretty lame.

I try to live by the "buy one cry once" rule save money in the long term so what does /diy/ think I should do?

Cars are not significantly effected by emps, at least last time I saw a review. Like 50% of cars running would die, but you just need to put it in park and restart.

My first vehicle was a used 1992 Toyota Tacoma with extra-wide tires, manual transmission, and no power steering. Fairly easy to turn for a guy. A family member had a 1991 Taco with power steering. It developed a leak and the power steering was out for a few days until they got it fixed. Much harder to turn even with stock width tires. So, the design has a fair bit to do with it too.

Two thousand is a pretty easy number to reach, when you consider nearly everything you've read as reference for possible projects.

I had a shelf in the bedroom, two in the office, and a wall in the living room. Filled them by use case, and rearranged every couple months. I also have a box next to the sitting space for current reads and notebooks.

The extra 540 length of chain is needed from the sail to post for tensioning... It's factored into the equation. Iv done the height also...

Iv realised my mistake through your comment though, I didn't add it to all 4 corners. So it would look like this?

>> No.1965748

If the little 540 in the corner means a rope (length 540) between each corner of the sail and each post, that makes this a bigger square which includes four 540 length ropes.

A right icosceles triangle with hypotenuse 540 has sides length 381.83.
5400 sail length, plus 381.83 (twice) makes sail plus ropes a square of 6163.66 per side.

That square, hung between posts with 1000 height difference, means:
The ground distance between the taller and shorter posts: 6081.66.
Between same-size posts: 6163.66

>> No.1965752

I was assuming the posts are in pairs, two shorter and two taller, and with shorter ones on one side and taller ones on the other side.

Hey /diy/ I need to install an outlet in my well house for a heatlamp, I have a double pole 30amp breaker (I think). My well is 220v and what I want to do is wire an outlet off of one of the hot wires that are on the upstream side of my wells pressure switch. Pic related is the breaker switch for my well, it says 30amp and I am wondering if I can wire a 15a outlet to one hot wire. Is this legal? Is there a chance it will burn my pump up?

>> No.1966073

Double check on your local code, but from what I know, what you want to do isn't code compliant at all, with the most egregious problem being the use of an oversized circuit breaker. What you're supposed to do is run a 15A single phase circuit dedicated to the heater.
>Is there a chance it will burn my pump up?
Circuit breakers, unless inside an appliance, are there to protect the power cables more than anything else; if something happens in your pump that a circuit breaker would stop, the pumps probably already fucked.

>> No.1966116

So the breaker picture in OP is not just two 15amp breakers hooked together to equal 30a?
>if something happens in your pump that a circuit breaker would stop, the pumps probably already fucked
What I'm mostly worries about is my heat lamp breaking and shorting out somehow. Would it trip the entire double pole breaker or just one side of the double of the breaker, thus only letting my pump get half of the power. My well house is concrete so I'm not really worried about fire and the only thing that will be plugged into it is a 300w heat lamp.

Hi all,

Looking to get some help.

I've done up what I think is the correct math for some shade sails.

The angle isn't well drawn but it's the angle of the point to point square of the sail and not the curve, if that makes any sense.

I'm looking to figure out post placement so I can tension it properly.

If someone can give it a quick look and check that my math is correct it'd be hugely appreciated.

>> No.1965723

Do the corners of the 5400 square go all the way to the posts?
If so, then your posts would have to be closer than 5400 to each other, not further, if one post is 1000 taller than the other.

What I think you're saying is:
From the side view, you're making a right triangle of base length (unknown), height 1000, hypotenuse 5400.
If so, The base length would be 5306.6
That's the distance between the two different-height posts.

Shit, sorry, I posted that vid to help OP unlock the head (his immediate hurdle), didn't even watch far enough to see the blade installed backwards.

OP, there's something very important for you to know about these saws; THE BOLT THAT HOLDS ON THE BLADE IS A REVERSE THREADED BOLT. You have to turn it CLOCKWISE while the blade is locked or restrained in order to remove the bolt.

The second thing to know is that to lift the motor/saw assembly up you have to unlock it by depressing a locking pin near the rear of the saw on the right hand side of the assembly.... Basically back there by the "hinge" of the saw.

Don't feel bad that you didn't instinctively know how to do this shit; neither did any of the rest of us.... But some of us were fortunate enough to have someone teach us.
