How did the Egyptians build the pyramids?
Before I die this is something that I would really like to know because I find it amazing how these ancient civilizations could build such magnificent objects the kind of tools and equipment they had then. I mean how did they move those blocks? How did they put on block onto another? How long would it have taken?
Question answered by Smokies Hiker
The laborers likely built ramps up the sides of the structure and used ropes and lots of manpower to pull ( slide on a lubricated surface ), the huge stones up to the proper location on the pyramid. It usually took about 20 years to build a large pyramid. They have even found an ancient pyramid that wasn't completed that still had a ramp in the construction area. The ramp was likely lubricated with just the right amount of water so the stone would slide up the ramp. Here is a link that probably is the best I've seen that explains the probable procedure of constructing one of these huge pyramids.
How can I find an industrial eqipment distributor?
I sell an innovative automatic single point lubricator. Like nothing anyone has ever seen. It lubricates any type of industrial equipment with a gear or bearing that needs lubricating. This product is relatively new on the market. My dilema is finding out how to go about finding industrial distributors that would be interested in my product as well as what to say to get their attention. Can anybody help me?
Question answered by You don't know me that well
I would say start by emailing companies you find online.
What do I need to know about Airsoft weapons?
A friend of mine (Cal) showed me a website where I can buy WW2 material. Such as clothing, equipment etc. I found a website about WWII re-enactors that I am interested in applying for, but I've never fired an Airsoft rifle, or paintball gun even.
What do I need to know to get started?
Question answered by Jack
Ok, I'll start with basic safety rules:
1) Always assume the gun is loaded
2) Unless firing, always have the safety on. If you have to move between shots, the safety goes on.
3) Never point at anything you wouldn't want to shoot. Don't rely on the safety, think of it as a last resort.
4) Think about rebounds, these can still have enough power to blind.
1) Never leave the gun loaded, it's bad for the springs. Always make sure the main spring is decompressed at end of firing (spring/electric only)
2) Lubricate occasionally. Don't over lubricate. Don't use anything petroleum based, it'll eat away at your seals.
3) Guns don't do well in water. Salt water will rust your gun.
4) Don't overcharge batteries.
Other general advice:
1) When zeroing your sights, get a grouping on 3 or 4 shots before adjusting. Otherwise you'll just "shot chase" and never get a true zero.
2) Make sure you hold gun properly. You'd be amazed how many people you see using the mag well as a foregrip.
3) If it's reenactment, make sure you empty your gun before you go. Take no ammo with you. Also, you won't want a gas gun, as they usually lock back on empty, so you can't pretend fire anything except bolt action if it's gas.
Hope this helps
What is a good home leg workout for bad knees?
I don't know if there is anything particularly wrong with my knees, just that they crack and pop and strain when I do leg exercises like squats. I've had them give me pain in the past when doing martial arts rolls and the like, but it's important to me to have stronger legs for the kind of stability I need when doing martial arts. Are their any good leg exercises besides squats that will be easier on my knees, or a way to do squats without putting so much strain on them? I need something that I can do at home on a regular basis with little or no equipment. Thanks for your help!
Question answered by deb
Stationary bike, try Craigslist. Lots of times people give away or sell cheaply their home exercise equipment. You might also consider taking a "joint health " supplement since you are already getting creaky joints. They help with the fluids that lubricate the joints.

How does the drilling fluid get *out* of the hole?
When drilling a well, does the drilling fluid seep out of the hole into a puddle? Is it pumped out? No matter how much I read, I can't seem to find this information. I have read about some systems that collect and treat it, but how does it come out? (I'm fascinated by oil and gas recovery and the equipment and processes involved, but have only the 'Net to do any research. Someday, I'm going to visit an offshore rig, by golly!)
Question answered by Gary H
I am not an expert but I believe that in many drilling operations they use high pressure "mud" to lubricate the drilling shaft and to carry the drilling debris away from the drill bit. The mud is pumped down the center of the drill pipe and comes up around the outside of the pipe.
One thing I learned that is very interesting is that the wells do not have to go straight down. They can control what direction the drill goes so they can drill down next to a particular geologic formation and then have the drill turn and come up into an oil reservior from below.
hope this helps.

What forms can lubrication take?
How does viscosity affect the performance of a lubricant?
Why would an Olympic bar have roller bearings rather than ball bearings?
What sort of bearings should the slide smith machine have and why? What environmental factors influence performance of bearings?
What should bearings be lubricated with?
Question answered by JUAN FRAN$$$
The two general forms lubrication can take is: Oil and grease:
With in those two you have several sub categories:
With grease you have:
Standard 4 in 1 grease
You have high temp wheel bearing grease
You have a special USDA approved grease with is eatable for use in food processing plants around the food being processed:
With oil you have:
light machine oil:
you single viscosity oil
you multi viscosity oil common to automotive oil 10W-40
You have synthetic oil
You non petroleum based oils and USDA oils for use in food processing plants:
Viscosity of an oil is how feeling or fast it flows: The higher the viscosity the slower it flows:
An Olympic bar will roller bears instead of ball bearing because of the weight load placed on it. Or lateral stresses which roller bearings handle better. Ball bearing are not made to handle lateral loads.
Smith sliding machine should have roller bearings. Although a lot of the cheap consumer ones have bronze bushings instead of either roller or ball bears.
Ball bearing are made to take a lineal force such as the shaft of a motor> Where roller bearings can take the lateral forces as well as lineal forces:
Temperature is one environmental factor. Due mainly to the bearing grease getting thicker in colder weather:
Dirty, wet, environmental can also affect a bearings life as well: That is why sealed bearings are best. They are sealed from most environmental factors except temperature changes:
You lubricate bearings with grease:
How often, how, & how to know when?
Just recently bought a used top of the line treadmill in excellent condition but i was reading in the book about lubricating the belt but im not sure how to know when to do it or how often we should do it or even where it goes. Are the signs to know when it needs to be done cause i did not ask the seller anything about this????? I'm a beginner with working out so don't know to much besides how to run,walk,jog on it, lol. Thanks & please no negative.
Question answered by H_R
If you go to a store that sells treadmills and exercise equipment
I am sure they can advise you on treadmill maintenance
tell them the make of your machine
also there are some how to info on you tube
hope this helps
happy treadmilling :)
What is the best type of oil for rock climbing equipment?
I was wondering if anybody had any recommendations for an oil to protect and lubercate carabiners, ect.
Question answered by BeachBum818
I never lubricated my carabiners, and you shouldn't. If the oil contains any petroleum products and it gets onto your rope well it`ll severely degrade the nylon. That's the last thing you want. I never had the need to lubricate them, if they are rusted or are sticking and the gate doesn't feel right to you then you should retire it. The carabiner shouldn't seize up on you like that, it means it failed and in my book its time to retire it.
Again petroleum products eat away at nylon- your webbing, rope, harness do not oil your `biners. Retire them and take better care of them next time. Chances are that there is debris caught in the hinge, something oil wouldn't fix anyway.
So the answer to your question is no oil.
