While PJ seems to have "been around forever", like any/most lubricant it can be used on "high friction (rubbing) areas on; drawers, doors, windows, etc. However, I believe PattyS mentioned about jewelry - in which we used PJ on Opal rings & pendants to "cover the Opal stone" & wipe off excess - to be absorbed. It protects the Opals from excessive damage to changes in heat. Like coming in from winter and removing a pie from the oven. The cold vs oven heat can make them shatter or explode. Keeps them safe & intact.
Many years ago a company that made a gas powered "chipper/shredder" - that DID NOT use spinning blades. They had 3-6 shafts each having multiple hammers (flails) to smash the small pieces of wood by spinning on their shafts. Very old mowers used this concept - and even today most state highway departments use heavy-duty flail mowers along highways. The number of "flails" correlates to the size of the debris. Some universities use this apparatus to separate "seeds" as well.
There are older shredders that can eat 3-ring binders! But, paper shredders are designed to shred paper. Maybe a "blender" could shred your plastics small enough to - then use a crosscut shredder. Your savings in; time, money, and electrical usage, will be reduced considerably. OR 3-4 shredders of varyin shred size & power, and reduce your plastic in "stages" vs burning up shredders.
Maybe you could make a "jig/rig" to hold the soldering iron tip - against the scoring line, and simply rotate bottle - while adjusting "in" soldering iron tip ?
I'm curious about 2 things. Was there a reason why you didn't put a "patch" on the inside of the tank "prior" to your outside patch ? Secondly, I don't remember any suggestion regarding gloves - for dealing with hot objects ? Was there No reason for protecting fingers/fingertips ?
Very nice & informative idea. Believe it may fare better (for voting) - without the antics though.
Very nice workmanship and attention to detail ! Wondering how well your dust collector worked or would a "shroud" around disk perimeter work better ? Did you glue & screw the threaded flange on rear of disk or just screws ?
I've used pool noodles on my Jon boat to protect edges & keep boat quiet when fishing close to rocks, trees, other obstacles. Similar to boat fenders.
I'm wondering - If your "cut can" had maybe 2 end-holes (for needle-nose pliers), then you could heat sharp edge of opposite end and use to cut the noodle ? Has anyone tried this ?
