Here’s a brief history. John Dilatush's Pietenpol John Dilatush's Subaru-Powered Pietenpol revised June 25, 2003 This is a beautiful Rocky Mountain valley north of Salida, Colorado. "Salida" means "exit" in Spanish, and in this case Salida is the western exit from the Arkansas River canyon and the Royal Gorge.

How to Wire a Switch Box Part of my job as a professional electrician is keeping my work neat and organized. A tidy work box makes it easier to install lights, switches, and outlets, and it helps future electricians to see what’s going on inside the box. Inspectors look for tidiness, too, because neat wiring makes short circuits and arcing less likely.
Making Your Own Coffee Can Forge Soup can, paint can, coffee can forge. Lots of people seem to think that casting and forging is out of their grasp, technically, financially, and in terms of the risks involved. Certainly getting deeply into smithing can mean all of that, but it’s really not that hard to create your own micro force for melting small amounts of metal for casting, knife forging, and the like. Ductless Minisplits for DIYers Friedrich is launching a ductless minisplit heat pump designed for installation by a homeowner with only modest mechanical skills and no professional HVAC training. Ductless minisplits are high-efficiency air conditioners and heaters that include an outdoor compressor and an indoor fan unit, typically mounted on a wall. They are usually sized and installed by professionals, partly because of the heat gain and loss calculations that are required to choose the right unit and partly because the components are connected by separate electrical, condensate, and refrigerant lines that may be difficult for a non-pro to handle.

The High Definition Earth Viewing (HDEV) experiment aboard the ISS was activated April 30, 2014. It is mounted on the External Payload Facility of the European Space Agency’s Columbus module. This experiment includes several commercial HD video cameras aimed at the Earth which are enclosed in a pressurized and temperature controlled housing. While the experiment is operational, views will typically sequence through the different cameras. Between camera switches, a gray and then black color slate will briefly appear.
B-17 bomber lodged in glacier for more than 70 years The unique story of a B-17 bomber that was destroyed during World War Two has emerged. Steve Memovich was a US Air Force pilot in the B-17 bomber during the war and survived when the aircraft crashed into a glacier. More than 70 years after his aircraft crashed he received an envelope in the post which contained his silver bracelet with his name, serial number and the inscription – Always yours, Marilyn. The bracelet had belonged to Steve, but he had lost it when his B-17 crashed all those years ago. Steve and his crew had taken off from an Allied base in Iceland in 1944. Roots Music School - Store Justin Johnson: An American Master A true master’s musicianship holds true to influences, yet follows spirit and heart first, setting aside rules and forging new and inspired art. Maybelle Carter did this, as did Django Reinhardt, Hank Williams, and Jimmie Rodgers.
