When sanding spindles how far should I go?


Since you are repainting the spindles, you do not need to go completely down to bare wood. It is fine to get down to the point where you begin to see bare wood, but you aren't actually sanding into the surface of it. The objective is to get to a clean surface that can be painted over.

If there are spots where there are thicker areas of paint, you would want to feather the hard edges in so they won't show in the final product. After the sanding process is done, you will want to carefully vacuum all of the dust, preferably with a vacuum cleaner that has a HEPA filter in it. You also will want to use a rag and wipe off all of the residual dust.

To prepare the surface for painting, you can wipe down all the surfaces to be painted with a rag soaked in naphtha. It is a solvent that will loosen up and dissolve the residual paint. Naphtha will give off fumes, so you will need to do this in a well ventilated area. You will also need to use gloves which are not petroleum based...

This is my first post though I have visited these forums many times before joining. I've been machining for about 3 years.

So, when I'm roughing aluminum, is there any problem with maintaining a spindle load of over 100%? I'd like to be running faster than what I am when I am getting 100%.

I had the meter at 187% in a roughing cycle once, though the cut only lasted about 5 seconds. I was getting about 80in^3/min, and I did a few parts before looking at the meter, and when I saw it I backed it off to 100% or so.

Also, when the spindle is accelerating to speed after a M03/M04 command the meter gets to 223%, if that's important (this is our only CNC with a spindle load meter, so I don't know if it's very much like other meters or...

My answer is going to be lengthy, because I hope to dispel some fears others obviously have about microwave radiation being a direct cause of irradiation and malignant cancer.

First of all, the word radiation when used in conjunction with microwaves has no relevance to the radiation one experiences when in contact with atomic particles (gamma rays et cetera). Rather, it is referring to electromagnetic radiation, which terminology also includes the visible spectrum. And as one of my Astronomy professors once pointed out, though a microwave emits electromagnetic radiation, you cannot be irradiated by a microwave oven like you can by an atomic detonation.

On of the subject of radiation emitted by a microwave oven, so long as your microwave is in good, working condition, having no compromises to the incorporated shielding, you should be able to hug your microwave for its lifespan of use with no adverse effects.

In simple terms, microwave ovens heat by causing friction...

I am not quite sure what you are aiming at, when formulating this question, but I'll give it a try.
I used to go out and do my long-distance training, by leaving the city, its parks, etc. and "go into the wild", but I have stopped doing so and prefer to train in parks, inside or nearby the city and always in circles so as to not go to far away from home, for several reasons:
1) Reach of mobile phone signal (in case you get injured, lost,...you'd better be able to call someone);
2) Injuries (if you are 15 km, i.e.: aprox. 9,3 miles away from your place, it's quite complicated to walk back home with a small fissure in the quadriceps for example)
3) Safety (the further away you are from civilization, the greater the chances of being faced with some kind of dangerous situation, which is not necessarily animal related (although some of it is).
In general, it's like everything in this life...Do not run any unnecessary risks, plan your route in advance, tell your...

I’m really proud of “How Far I’ll Go.” I literally locked myself up in my childhood bedroom at my parents’ house, to write those lyrics. I wanted to get to my angstiest possible place.

So I went Method on that. And really… it’s a challenging song. It’s not “I hate it here, I want to be out there.” It’s not, “There must be more than this provincial life.” She loves her island, she loves her parents, she loves her people. And there’s still this voice inside. And I think finding that notion of listening to that little voice inside you, and… being who you are, once I wrote that… it then had huge story repercussions. The screenwriters took that ball and ran with it.

And that was exciting to see, the sort of giving and take between the songs and the story at large. That was a real key to unlocking her. Nailing that moment of— it’s not about being miserable where you are. I related to that. I was 16 years old, and I lived on 200th Street, in New York. I knew what I wanted to...

I generally avoid using IoC in the domain layer - you want to try and access the kernel only in the application layer (where, yes, you may access the kernel quite a lot).

For my projects, all my business objects are generally POCOs with few dependencies on anything other than framework stuff.

The service layer tends to have lots of dependencies, but doesn't access the kernel directly very often.

Whether you can do this is going to depend on your choice of ORM etc., and of course the existing architecture of the project.

If your business objects have dependencies that need to be resolved, then you are either going to need to use the kernel to resolve them, or refactor your project to remove the...

I've been staring at the edge of the water

'Long as I can remember, never really knowing why

I wish I could be the perfect daughter

But I come back to the water, no matter how hard I try

Every turn I take, every trail I track
Every path I make, every road leads back
To the place I know, where I cannot go
Where I long to be

See the line where the sky meets the sea? It calls me
And no one knows, how far it goes
If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me
One day I'll know, if I go there's just no telling how far I'll go

Oh oh oh, oh, oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh
Oh oh oh, oh, oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh

I know, everybody on this island seems so happy on this island
Everything is by design
I know, everybody on this island has a role on this island
So maybe I can roll with mine

I can lead with pride, I can make us strong
I'll be satisfied if I play along
