    Awesome new technology we're enjoying

    Bob, I have more then a Endless Supply of the stuff. Come winter when the plants are all dried up and gone I know exactly where to dig if my stocks are down. Don't know about the store bought stuff. Just what's at hand. I started with maybe a gram. Some suggestions state 1 to 9 grams. Based on what I read. Worked a bit. Upped it to two or three grams and It works for me. I wouldn't know what works for someone else. Guess they would have to try it like I did. .

    Even with those limitations it sure would be interesting to run it over some mine walls.

    Batteries, OOOOOH I like Batteries !

    It sure can happen. That's why the Creator Invented FUSES, eaa? LOL This bike is 1000W @ 48v. 1000W / 48V = 20.83 Amps. 5 * 5 amps could do 25 Amps at best. Under Dirres the motor should only ask for 20.8 Amps.That would only be the case if you stuck it on Full Power . Most power requirements would be well under the rated 3750mAh of each individual cell. The batteries are capable of over 20 Amps each . All individual cells are getting fused at 5 Amps each. If one should go Short (Never Heard of it Happening! ) it can not take the whole pack with it. Going with 5, 18650 in parallel. 2600 mAh each. The fuses will never see a 5 Amp drain unless something goes south. Battery Out is going to be fused at 25Amp. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_pDil2dkRPTTDlVNUcyRjZHWm8/view Fuses being used: https://www.ebay.com/itm/200Pcs-Glass-Fuse-Tube-Axial-With-Lead-Wire-Fast-Blows-Fuse-3x10mm-250V-5A-BS1/263232945558?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649

    Bacon wood knife scales

    All I can think of was they lowered both tail gates and just shoved the dang thing onto another truck. Worst thing is I purposely parked where I could see it and miss it happening.

    LOL, No One going to just walk away with that one. But that's what I thought about my Stack On Role Around Tool crib too. It walked off the bed of my truck some place when I was at Denny's one morning. Lost like $3000 in power tools and crap.
  6. Working on some batteries for a E-Bike Project. Well I got sorta tired of testing batteries one at a time. Purchased a LiitoKala Lii-500 4 hole. This puppy set in the Nor Test does it all. Charges battery to max at 250, 500 ,750 or 1000 mAh. Follows with a Discharge to the 3.00V Limit recording Amp Hours. I can set for 250 or 500mAh. Recharges the battery to the 4.20V top them off and Reports the Numbers. Amp Hours , Voltage and even the Internal Battery Resistance. Trying to order another box of 100 but the guy is out for a while. Dang ! I REALLY Want some of these puppies. You can actually start a car with four of the things . I would need 16 to make up my 48V , Wicked Wanda the Wonder Wife say Maybe on the second Christmas Next Year ? Note For Dave ! These could save you a few LB's in weight, eaaa? https://www.ebay.com/itm/4-HEADWAY-...361354&hash=item2aa9b8ebc7:g:J44AAOSwUYNaS8aC

    We have Butt Loads of Devils Claw growing on our property. After trying it I don't buy Ibuprofen any more. Seems to work on about any and all aches and pains for me. I had surgery on my Clavicle back in the 80's and something seems to have come unglued. LOL My knee's and Hips give me stick all the time. I just make a tea with a few grams or even just chew it up and swallow. Taste Good to me. I use the large root just under the plant. Eaaaa Free Meds.

    Any Synthetic clothing is not such a good Idea. LOL I was with a guy shooting some BP pistols way back when. He walked by me and the Back of his cotton shirt was Spooging Smoke and had burned about a 4 inch hole in it. He had no Idea he was on fire.

    LOL, don't think they would be so practical. Pretty much only scans the surface. Sure would be interesting playing around looking at some tailing or even the walls of a old mine.

    WoW, when are they going to come out with the Portable Metal detector version of that lab grade XRF scanner ?
  11. Yea, we had some pack rats but they were dispatched via Victor Traps. Funny thing about the Rattlers here. Everyone around us has had issues with them but never seen a one on our property over the years. I think it's because of the Critters we keep. Dogs and Chickens.. Not even at the water hole. Seen more then a Few Gopher Snakes at the water. Emmmm They Eat Rattlers.
