Some folks hold the Webley Mk VI .455 revolver in near reverence. I’m not one of them. To me it’s big, clunky, ugly, underpowered and worst of all I don’t think it is a very accurate handgun. Many attribute the weakness of its .455 cartridge as being necessitated by its top break design. That’s not actually the case because boat-loads of them were altered to fire more powerful .45 ACPs with no problems. The Webley Mark VI .455 was adopted in 1915 and was supposed to have been replaced by a .38 revolver in the late 1920s. But as the cartridge box printing shows, the model stayed in service with all the British Commonwealth nations through World War II. Neither is Duke impressed with the .455 Webley’s power. Note the mild crease its 262 gr. lead bullet put in this surplus GI steel helmet compared to the deep dent made by the 230 gr. FMJ .45 ACP as also fired from a revolver. The Webley line of revolvers began as early as 1887 with the Mk I and its black powder ammunition. As ammunition technology and metallurgy progressed the design likewise evolved through various “marks” until the Mk VI arrived in 1915 during the “Great War.” Where the early versions had 4″ barrel lengths the sh...

It’s possible to join ABS to PVC, but it’s only supposed to be done with a

It’s possible to join ABS to PVC, but it’s only supposed to be done with a mechanical coupling, not glued. If you just came here for the answer, you can stop reading… but I think you want the whole story. Here goes. Today, there are two commonly used plastics for drain, waste, and vent pipes inside of homes; ABS (black) and PVC (white, mostly). This is almost all that’s ever used in new residential construction here in Minnesota, and I suspect for the rest of the country as well. For most systems, a plumber will use one material or the other, not but both. This makes all of the connections simple; the plumber uses a solvent cement (aka glue) made just for that material, things stick together, and everyone is happy… For the most part, ABS and PVC are not supposed to be glued together. We’ll turn to the 2015 Minnesota State Plumbing Code for some background on this topic. If we turn to chapter 7 of the MN state plumbing code, we can find a bunch of info on drains. Section 705.1.2 ABS Solvent Cement Joints (for ABS) says the following, among other stuff: Where surfaces to be joined are cleaned and free of dirt, moisture, oil, and other foreign ma...

No-Churn Ice Cream does not disappoint | Ledger Independent

I can’t ever recall a time in my life when I didn’t love ice cream. This sweet treat has been the sticky on my fingers, the cold on a hot day, and the sweet bliss on a moment leaving me hungry for more. Quite frankly I can’t imagine a time of day or night when ice cream isn’t appropriate. I’ve never understood folks who don’t enjoy ice cream, yet I never question it as it leaves a few more dips for my spoon. The first attempt I had making this delicious dessert was in the fourth grade at Campbell Mountain Girl Scout Camp. We put our ingredients in an old coffee tin and shook it back and forth. This process was one of the more fun ways of churning the mix but still left our little arms exhausted. Traditional ice cream is churned, a step that incorporates air and breaks up the ice crystals as they form around the mix, making the finished product a creamy smooth cream rather than one icy block. We could’ve churned 20 coffee cans and it wouldn’t have been enough for that hot afternoon. It seemed like it took forever before it was finally done. Even at a young age, we all recognized how special this creamy homemade dessert was and licked every bit to the last drop. To this day I look...

I’ll admit. When I saw the Othermill for the first time I thought it was just another mill with cheap Chinese hardware inside sold as a premium. I’m ashamed to say that I even trash talked it a little bit. It gave me another chance to relearn that I should always do my research before being a jerk, check my assumptions thoroughly, and even then it’s not recommended. Other Machine Company was kind enough to let me swing by the office in Berkeley California. [Danielle], the CEO, led me through the design of the mill as well as the challenges in running the operation. The Othermill is a serious machine, and with the recent release of the Othermill Pro, it’s only getting better. The components are not bargain basement. This is something that could be more obvious, but it’s almost entirely made from US sourced parts, including the custom stepper motors. There aren’t any ball bearings that will start to make strange noises in a year. It can now cut 6mil traces in a PCB all day long. To put it into perspective. The Othermill Pro costs a third of the price of an equivalent machine from LPKF and has the same capabilities. The Othermill started as a DARPA grant researched at Otherlab. The...

(Photo: Jenna Watson/IndyStar)Buy Photo The state’s hottest recorded temperature was just that on July 14, 1936, according to the National Weather Service. Temperatures were forecasted in the 90s, but climbed much higher than that thanks to the heat index, which factors in temperature and humidity to create a “feels like” temperature. We’re only running about one degree above average in Indianapolis, according to NWS meteorologist Mike Ryan. “It’s really been a fairly typical summer from a temperature standpoint here in Central Indiana,” Ryan said. According to the National Weather Service’s 2015 Annual Climatological Summary for Indianapolis, the hottest temperature recorded at the Indianapolis International Airport was 94 degrees last September. Overall, there were 13 days with recor...
