    You certainly can run a single phase motor on a VFD - if your VFD will support single phase output. There will be some restrictions, however.

    1. You need to start the motor up at 60 Hz. After...

    I saw one like that. But the problem is that if I set it for the number of hours in winter - for it to go off about 11pm - in the summer the lights are on until 2am or so. I really want one that...

    Thanks but I'm looking for a product that does this. It needs to be in a (mostly) waterproof case for outdoor mounting. While I could probably cobble something up, what I'm looking for is a...

    I'd go with an air rifle rather than the slingshot. But that's because I'm terrible with a slingshot.

    Just make sure you don't get Alvin, the chipmunk. The penalty is that the chipmunks will...

    Also, I see from your picture that you were in the military. If you have a VA disability, you might be able to get hearing aids from the VA. I don't know all the ins and outs of that but if you can...

    That's the way I feel, also. I don't buy planes for show, but to use. If someone modified the plane to use a modern thick iron it would be a plus for me. And if collectors spurn such planes, all...

    I don't know anything about the MD aids but what (I think) you want to look for is a digital aid. That is, one that can be programmed by the provider. That way, you can try a "fitting" and then...

    This is one of my major complaints about traditional hearing aid dispensers. Some years back, I bought a set of hearing aids for $6,600 for the pair. After a few years, that dispenser started...

    My experience is similar to yours. The biggest improvement you can make to an older plane is to replace the blade with a modern blade (and maybe a modern chip breaker).

    Also, look at Costco. They had a hearing aid center and have the lowest prices on hearing aids.

    Most states have a mandatory trial period for hearing aids. Here in CA it's 30 days. You can...

    If it's real mahogany (sold around here as "genuine mahogany"), I'd grab that in a heartbeat. It's getting tough to find genuine mahogany anywhere.

    Wow, I'm just amazed that people can build such things. Congratulations.

    I think George Wilson made one or more of those and I hope he chimes in.

    Thanks. The word I was looking for was "oyster". Don't know why I couldn't remember that - just getting old, I guess.

    Thanks to everyone who replied.

  15. Looking for what something is called

    When you slice a branch across - so that the rings show - and maybe an inch thick, what is that resulting slice called. I've seen the name, but just can't remember what it's called. A friend was...

    A 4 1/2 in good condition, and early (maybe type 11) would go for a lot more than $40. If it meets that criteria, grab it and resell it if you don't like it. You won't lose any money.

    Wow, that's quite an insight - I'm sure it took you a while to figure it all out. I'm glad you were able to do that. Send a note to Stihl. Maybe they'll post it to help others - you never know.

    He was really a pioneer who gave woodworkers some of the best tools available. And he built a successful company from scratch. He will be missed.

    I use the side of an old chisel. The "edge" of the side is usually pretty sharp and works well for scraping the old glue off.
