    Spot Weld Plastic

    I celebrate your anticipated docking with spaceship perfection.

    Reading your text was smooth and easy for me. I didn't have any problem with the commas. In fact, I didn't even notice them. Different people like different punctuation styles. My brother like fewer commas, apparently I like more. We are both wonderful writers (blush).Funny thing, it was only in the second sentence I thought you were missing one comma! "They're a strong, flexible, accessible free material." I was thinking you could've had an additional comma after "accessible"! So please don't feel like you have to change your style. You will never please everyone adjusting the placement or frequency of your commas. I figure your only salvation lies in having contributed an genuinely useful instructable. And for doing that, I thank you!

  • Vacuum Slow Cooker Filament Restoration

    Do you have any idea how much of the roll of filament is dried? In other words, the sides of the reel are solid, so no moisture is exiting through that, and the filament is wound up so that could prevent inner turns of the filament from being able to breath and dehumidify. Have you done any experiments to determine if just the outside turns are being dehumidified or if the effect goes all the way to the core or something in between?

  • RADIANT FLOOR HYDRONIC (water) HEATING SYSTEM

    Wow. Thank you! I never realized you could use a standard tank-type water heater. That lowers the huge hurdle that an expensive instant water heater presented. Now I wonder if tank-type water heaters require smaller gauge wires than the instant ones need…

    Here is a page which discusses humidity and floor cooling systems. Apparently what I was once told about in-floor condensation is controlabel. "So the key to confidently cool with radiant is to first control the moisture in the air (lean) through dehumidification…and then control the surface temperature of the floor (dew point) which is easy to do."http://www.healthyheating.com/Page%2055/Page_55_i_...

    My understanding is that circulating cool water in the loop will cause condensation within the floor which is undersirable.

    Ceiling fans might not be required. Just as one is warmed by radiant heat from the floor, our body can radiate heat to a cool floor. It raises the interesting thought that we are warmed by and also in turn are warming the sun."To cool our body just enough to be comfortable we can lower the mass temperature in our home a few degrees cooler than our skin temperature which creates the same experience you get when you walk into an underground garage on a hot summer day or into the frozen food section at the super market. Why do we feel cool in the underground garage or freezer section? It's because the temperature of the concrete or glass in relation to our skin is lower so our body releases its heat via radiation to the cooler surface - thus the reason we feel cool. The best part of...

It's because the temperature of the concrete or glass in relation to our skin is lower so our body releases its heat via radiation to the cooler surface - thus the reason we feel cool. The best part of it all, is a body at rest, transfers over 50% of its heat via radiation so radiant cooling makes perfect sense."http://www.healthyheating.com/Page%2055/Page_55_i_...
