    Oh, I have heard of Whitworth... Lot's of old tooling is in that standard. Didn't know the full name was British Standard Whitworth. Must be the standard before they went to metric. Thanks for that.

    If you tried the shake and bake method in Wisconsin in the summer you might agree with those of us who have had difficulty in the 100% humidity at 80F. https://electrostaticsolutions.blogspot.com/2005/01/are-air-temperature-and-humidity.html

    If others are reading this thread and are tentative about trying powder coat... What is to be afraid of? The worst that can happen is you melt the boolits down and start over. That's double the fun. It's a cannot lose situation. In response to...

    I did some powder coating in an unheated garage a couple of years ago. Temp inside garage -20 F. Chunks of powder were frozen. But I got the best coverage ever. Harbor Freight Red big fat and fluffy. BEAUTIFUL

    I share your appreciation of boolits looking like they are made of metal not plastic. Been trying different powders and mixing powders to get a good looking boolit. I got some Cardinal Silver from Conditor22 to try out. I have found it to be the...

    This one is very nice. This guy has a lot of good ideas. With that said, if you want to build a lathe it depends on what you are going to do with it. A lot of functions MAY not be necessary. So you could build something more cost effective. I had...

    For clouds to form and rain to start, the air does have to reach 100% relative humidity, but only where the clouds are forming or where the rain is coming from. Often, rain will be falling from clouds where the humidity is 100% into air with a lower...
