    I see what you did there.
  2. I could see that being true if it only ever rained when the light was on.

    Grilling 2018

    The rule of thumb I heard was sear until the smoke alarm goes off, then give it another minute.
  4. I did it, works fine, but that was before the price of the integrated units came down. Nowadays, I'd buy an integrated unit. The waterproofing is more robust because they don't have to accommodate bulb changes like the old incandescent units.

    PTFE Rod instead of Torlon Balls?

    I'm surprised this has been an issue. You sure you don't have the wrong number of balls in the car? They need space to roll and it is possible to fit an extra ball over spec in some of those cars.

    Moovie Review Threade

    Loved the original and liked this one too. Saw the preview for Wreck It Ralph 2 and can't wait to miss it. An exercise in making a movie entirely out of product placement shots. On the other hand, I can't wait for the Lego Movie 2, The Second Part.

    Spinlock XTR clutches

    This thread inspired me to dismount, tear down, inspect, rebuild, and rebed my clutches, which are a mixture of XT and unmarked (i.e. no model designated) Spinlocks. It's amazing how much crud builds up in there over the years. I replaced two cam assemblies and cleaned and lubed everything and it's like night and day. If you've never pulled one of these apart, you might be surprised at how much better they work at the smaller end of their size range when maintained, particularly with some 1 Drop lube on the cam pivot. Kudos to Spinlock for keeping parts available for these ancient units.

  9. As long as there's a never ending stream of Patreons marks, there will be a never ending supply of grifters.
