also what is nu strut in the above statement
Question answered by Fred Osim
steel is a better building structures than concretes...all the anchors are visible....
in concrete, the anchors and reinforcement steel are embedded and there is no way of telling whether the boys have installed them....u can only trust that they do...and mishaps often happen because they miss installing them...
also concrete is a liquid when pour and it's very dirty and messy...the concrete forms might burst and vibrate out of control.....
why u want to work with steel?..because it's stealing....
u're not going to get the job if u tell him u going to steal....
i was a structural steel detailer for heavy structural steel and it's easy work......
just tell him u want to work in steel detailing because all u need to do is add or substract and draw lines.......
here is a website from kumar industries for nu-strut.......just flip through the pages until u found strut and fittings.....
Exactly which figure do i look at in this unemployment indicator?
Basically i want this - The average hours worked per week by production workers in manufacturing industries
Now i am getting results for all this - should i only look at results of Manufacturing and production at NO 19, 20 ?

How does injection molding compare to sheet metal and machined fabrication?
I work for a company that designs lab equipment that is designed for tabletops. We currently design all of our products using sheet and machined metal parts. We don't do any of the metal fabricating in house. We give our designs to local vendors and they design it for us. I have never been a fan of the designs of our machines. How does the price of designing parts by plastic molding compare to that of our current method? What other factors need to be considered?
Question answered by anomalous
You need to contact a plastic molding company and get an engineer to look at your design.
The first question is what kind of plastic meets your design requirements. There are about a million kinds of plastic and only an expert can tell you what is best. Not everything can be replaced with plastic, otherwise we would not be using metals any more.
Secondly, you need a mold or group of molds to make the parts and you need to make enough units to justify the cost of the mold. For small production numbers, plastic is not always economical.
Finally, the design of some parts may need to be changed to allow the use of plastic, or to make it economical. You can't weld plastics, and threaded holes for screws may not be advisable. It may be more economical to make the parts snap together, or to replace several parts with one plastic molding. This can lead to economies in assembly, but again requires expert advice and some redesign time. This would also be a hard sell if you are not making large numbers of units.
Where do I go to get someone to build something out of plastic for me?
I need this to be 100% custom, the finished product has to fit my specifications exactly. I've searched around but I am new to this, so I am not quire sure.

Question answered by Mike1942f
To get exactly what you want, you have to have a 3D CAD file describing it completely. You then go to a prototyping company that can either 3D print it or make dies for injection molding who will discuss kinds of plastic (9 in the handout puzzle on my desk from one of these companies). This is a considerable industry.

Where can I purchase a Carb kit for the 2003 40Hp yamaha outboard motor?
What type of Carb Cleaner solution is recommended? I saw a can of Spray Carb Cleaner at Academy?
Does the 2003 40HP Yamaha have an idle adjustment? If so, where is it located.
Are there any special tools required for removal and reinstalling Carburetor?
Is there any product you recommend to add to the Gas for Cleaning Carberutors in outboard motor.
Question answered by jtexas
online vendors I've used and will use again (in order of personal preference):
I would highly recommend getting yourself a service manual. It'll save you litterally $thousands over a couple-three years.
I don't know the '03 yammy in particular but here's some basics on outboard carburetors.
Outboards are particularly sensitive to dirty carbs, but they aren't that hard to clean or keep clean. They are surprisingly simple devices, unlike like the automotive carbs you used to see on cars.
Thing about aerosol carb cleaner is that, anything sprayed through the carb of a running engine goes right past the orfices and tiny passages that need cleaning straight through into the cylinders, where it does what its designed to do: strip oil off of metal surfaces.....not something you want in your combustion chamber.
I use chemtool B-12. soak all metal parts in it overnight, but be advised a lot of plastics will dissolve in it, and it's not so good for rubber, either.
There is probably a recommended special tool for removing the jets from the carb for cleaning, but if you spray aerosol carb cleaner liberally into every nook and cranny, and if they aren't too far gone, you can probably get it clean without taking the jets out. course there's always the chance that you'll have to go back and re-do 'em. I used my dremel to fabricate the tool for my evinrude, from a screwdriver. You'd need the manual for a description or picture of the yammy tool.
It's not really reasonable to expect an additive to clean a dirty carburetor, but there's a couple products that will keep 'em clean.
I add an ounce of seafoam per gallon of gas to my tanks, haven't had a problem since I started with that. Course if I let the motor sit for more than a couple months (rare), I usually clean the carbs just on general principle (that's how easy it is).
"Stabil" also comes highly recommended.
Automotive guys, if you could only have one welder for your shop what type would it be?
I'm looking for a welder for home automotive repair, just off the top of my head I know I'm gonna need to do some sheet metal and some steel around 1/4 inch. If you could only have one type of welder what would it be? I'm thinking i may be best off with mig because of sheet metal but have heard some people claim to be able to stick weld body work and mufflers(thin stuff) while others clam stick is terrible for thin stuff ( burn throughs). Anyway I know it is mostly a matter of opinion so what are your opinions? Stick, tig, mig, other? Throw out your opinion and get some free points, can't hurt right haha. Thanks!

Millermatic 211. I've got an older Lincoln 135 (115v) but it isn't enough for some jobs so I have to break out the stick welder. The advantages of the 211 is that it is a dual current machine, it can be used on both 115v and 230 giving one the option being able to do what 2 machines would do in the past. It would be plugged into 230 in the shop, but if I needed to move to the garage or somewhere else the 115v would give me that option.
Not only do I work on cars, fabricate and blacksmith, I sell these machines. I will never recommend a product I wouldn't or don't already use.

What role does iron(metal) play in the canadian economy?
This is for a science project and i need this question to complete it !!!
:) kso thanks !
Question answered by Ronnie @ BinBrain.Com
While Canada ranks among the top ten manufacturing nations, it is also experiencing tremendous growth in the high technology and services industries. Its economy is increasingly diversified and knowledge-based. No longer relying exclusively on natural resources, Canada's economy is growing through innovation and technology.
Throughout 2002 and into 2003, Canada’s gross domestic product (GDP) grew faster than any other G8 country and employment was strong. Canada's GDP grew 2.9% in 2005. Employment was also strong, interest rates reached record lows, and inflation remained low and stable.
Most of Canada's manufacturing industry is in Ontario and Québec, where motor vehicle production comprises the largest sector within this industry. Other important manufacturing sectors include food and beverages, paper and allied products, primary metals, fabricated metals, petrochemicals and chemicals.
The Atlantic, Prairie and Pacific regions of Canada have more natural resource-based economies. The Atlantic provinces focus on fishing, forestry and mining, while Prairie provinces are dependent on agriculture and mineral fuels. British Columbia's primary sectors are forestry and mining, as well as tourism.
Major Exports: automobile vehicles and parts, machinery and equipment, high-technology products, oil, natural gas, metals, and forest and farm products.
Major Imports: machinery and industrial equipment including communications and electronic equipment, vehicles and automobile parts, industrial materials (metal ores, iron and steel, precious metals, chemicals, plastics, cotton, wool and other textiles), along with manufactured products and food.
Does anyone have a good way of heating up a converted garage which is cost effective?
Does anyone have any ideas on heaters that are cheap to use and heat a room quickly and effectiantly.
All comments welcomed.
Question answered by TheTinker
It totally depends on the cost of fuel and where you live.
The sun is the most economic method to heat anything but requires installed infrastructure. Air to air heat transfer panels can be fabricated to use the suns energy to heat panels of aluminum, steel or other metal and extract the heat using a fan. These are the most economical unless you live in an area of the country that gets less than 100 days of bright sun per year (like Spokane, Knoxville, etc).
In an urban setting, where natural gas is available, wood is scarce and electricity is expensive - a water cooled natural gas fired generator with the cooling radiator inside the garage will both reduce the electricity used per month and heat the space from the bi-product. This is not cheap to install but cheap to use.
If you live on a farm or rural lot, a 15 tonne natural aerobic decomposition cell will generate all the heat you can ever use in a hot water circulation system.
The possibilities are truly endless. Good luck with your continued research.
What's the reason behind car manufacturer's putting the car make badge on the steering wheel?
The steering wheels of most cars have the car make's logo on the centre of the steering wheel - what is the reasoning behind this?
Question answered by skaizun
In the early days, manufacturers put their logos only on or near the radiators, so that passers-by would see the mfr's name, and, hopefully, yearn to keep up with the Joneses, and purchase that mfr's vehicle, too! Since there were few cars around, there was no need to plaster the logo all over the vehicle (i.e., the only one behind you was the dairy guy in the horsedrawn carriage, and he probably couldn't afford the consarned thing!). ;)
Furthermore, it was expensive to fabricate logos, which were pretty much for snob appeal only (both the mfr and the owner), since they served no other function (and still don't!). Granted, some vehicles cleverly used their logos as radio buttons or other control buttons or in the headlights, etc., but, that was pretty pricey to do back then, which was paid for by - - guess who? - - the consumer!
Over the years, the assembly line made it easier, faster, and cheaper to produce cars, so the logo (mostly made of cheap plastic, now) was plastered on the front, back, and sides of the vehicle, inside and out! Most steering wheels had a metal spoke and hub, so it was natural to put the logo where most people would first look when "peeking" into someone else's car! The notion carries through, today, even on vinyl and leather clad steering wheels.
Also, consider that many people rent cars, and might fancy them over their current clunker! What better way to keep your product in the consumer's mind than to put it right smack in front of his or her face? Of course, considering how common the automobile is, today, and, especially, how so few vehicles stand-out, physically, from the others (i.e., if you've seen one egg-shaped car, you've seen 'em all!), having logos festooned all over the place is almost as pointless an endeavor as trying to remember what you had for dinner, last night! And, quite frankly, some of the logos are so similar, these days, that I can't tell one from another!
