    Winter is coming.

    Yep, I think we bypassed Fall this year. Cooler running one day and in three days time trying to remember what we did with the little Box Heaters here. WTH ?
  4. Eaaaa !   I tested these batteries and quite pleased with they're performance.  The operating voltages run from 12.6 down to 8v or 2.0v per cell.   You can't let them go below that or they get pissed and start loosing Capacity levels .  Voltage stay good but they just would not last as long.   

    Question I'm asking is would your Coil and point produce a viable and safe operation of spark down to that level ? 8 Volts?   I'm thinking Yes sense your using good ol Points and coil system ? 

    Unlike all other Lithium Chemistry batteries these are all but a Direct replacement to Lead Acid batteries.  Can be recharged via regular battery charger.  You just can't leave them cooking as long. 

    Rated 8Ah capable of delivering some 100A until drained. 

    Your flight times would be under a Hour ?

      8 Ah / 2 would be 4 hours of run.  Going with that you would never get below the 10V mark I think.  Let me do some testing .  I can run them down with a 3Amp load and see where da voltage is after like the 3rd hour.  Cool.   I need to do a Load test anyways.

      Right on! Let me know how they they hold up :)

      I have eight of them here to play with.  As soon as the guy comes up with another batch I'm ordering some more.

    Golden Valley man dies in flooded wash

    Yep ! The 2/10ths mile road leading to my own home has seen that action. You drive home and a hour later attempt to drive out and find your self in a 3 or 4 ft rut of running water. BAD Ju Ju situation. In my younger (More Stupid) days, I attempted to drive thru some running water. Seemed to be only a foot or so deep. Hit it a bit too fast and engine crapped out. Cranking and cranking she would fire up. After a few minutes of this the back end of my DATSUN PU started swinging to the side of the road. Slapped that puppy in 1st gear let out the clutch and used the starter to pull me out of the situation. I only needed to make it 20ft to get out of the running water. If that truck was a Automatic It would have ended up off the road down a gully and lost to the elements.

    Most people never believe the flash flood stories until they see it happen in front of em.. Bone Dry one minute and under 3ft of water a minute or two later.

    Prospectors Soap

    Must admit Bob, I love home made Goat Cheese. About the only thing I miss about the wife's goats she use to keep. Dang things use to get up on top of the truck and leave little divot dimples all over the hood and Top.
  9. For you Non Military Back Ground folks ""SITREP" means Situation Report ! Report Follows: Rain. RAIN RAIN. Rain. RAIN, RAIN, RAIN, RAIN. It's Raining. Well sorta raining . Raining . Raining raining Rain. Rain. Rain Rain. darn RAIN.... End Report.

    Sounds like it would leave clean spots on a man. Not so sure I like that Idea.

    100 year old artifacts?

    Yes, Arizona gets quite Ugly when you dare to play in they're domain.

    As a teen age kid I seen one one time and could have sworn it landed just on the north side of the Santa Catalina Mt of Tucson. Silhouetted the whole Mt Range. As it turned out people in Iowa seen the same thing to the North east of them. Visual Perspective does not work.

    100 year old artifacts?

    LOL, We had more then a few Deputies like that here in Luna Country for a spell. In the end they were all being caught up with. Got too brazen and messed with the wrong people.
  14. homefire


    Actually they make good pets. Just as good as a cat for keeping the mice at bay.

    I'm quite sure I experienced that HISS sound one event. Did not relate it to what I was seeing. And yes it was a Local type event not hundreds of miles distant.

    Morlock , it's my understanding the sounds they make are perceived as a Sonic Boom.

    Batteries, OOOOOH I like Batteries !

    Don't go there MAN ! It's a Addictive side line to say the least ! I started with a E-Bike battery Project and now have Three Projects in the works. Any and all cells capable of at least 1Ah are destine for a Power Wall. Modified Sign Wave inverters are dirt cheap and will run about anything I would ever want. Don't do so well on Inductive Loads (Cause Noise, Undue Ware ) but work. Actually Scrap Lap Top batteries are hard to find in these parts. I just buy the Over Stock Modem batteries with like new cells (Never Cycled) at a little more then a dollar a cell. Testing these Samsungs all came out at or just under their rated capacity. The LG modem batteries before these none came in below 2300mAh and the batteries are only rated 2200. https://www.ebay.com/itm/100-SAMSUNG-ICR18650-22F-18650-2200MAH-CELLS-LITHIUM-ION-BATTERIES-POWERWALL-DIY/173488966348?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649 Better then piecemealing a ton of odd laptop batteries , eaa?
  18. 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

    Batteries, OOOOOH I like Batteries !

    Well I ordered eight of these bad boys to play with. Going into a Emergency Battery Box capable of producing a multitude of voltages for various jobs. Anyways, going to incorporate Solar Charging provisions within my E-Battery Pack Build. All going into a plastic tool box . Plan is to end up with a Emergency Battery System capable of producing a multitude of voltages at hand. Small enough to stow in the truck for Camping or other needs. All voltages derived from Direct Battery or BUCK / BOOST converters and a small 120Vac Inverter. 5V Phone Charging and other do dads 12V Anything within the Amperage the battery would handle. Thinking something around 50Ah. 19Vdc All lap tops in the house require 19Vdc to run and or charge. 56Vdc Yes it will be able to charge my E-Bike battery via CV/ CC Boost Converter. 120Vac Installing a small Sign Wave 290W inverter Electronics from scrapped MGE UPS Back UP. Run time limited but still available. LOL, Ambitious Project, eaa? This should keep me out of trouble some time.

    Took a Hit

    Hence I hold no bank account. Prepaid cards works for what I do. SURPRISE ! Yes you can do just fine without a Bank Account. Cashing second party check is a pain in the Rump but in the end they get cashed.

  22. I had the old Garrett Depth Multiplayer (Treasure Hound) used on the lunch box ADS detector. Got more then tired of the beast in short order. LOL DOWN the road it went. If I knew about PI detectors at the time I never would have gone there.

    White's Gold Master V-Sat detector for sale $250

    Not the Machine. Just the Timing I think . In a month or two someone will have the Wants and Needs.
  24. homefire

    Lets hope this holds....

    Man I would break down the detector and stow it better. Sure A Chit I would snag that puppy on a branch or something a Bust it Good.
