Re: re: Claiming the BCVP Title Back

The superior education and experience of an individual does not bestow creativity or an ability to innovate in a given subject. Sadly for some it is impossible to realize that no matter how hard they try, creativity and flashes of genius do not come from a book but from within a person, it is not t...

Re: Much ado about nothing.

My most oscillatory Bruno, Whatever do you mean? With respect to the origins of the BCVP concept, if you were indeed first to document the idea, your previous publications to this effect have (at least) established your so-called claim to "primacy". No one has, or will, dispute this fact. So why th...

Re: re: New guy needs alot of help!

Sometimes the dragon wins Reminds me of that joke about a tourist in Spain ordering the 'Bulfight Special' in a restaurant -- which was bull's cojones in sauce. He receives a very small serving and protests to the chief waiter, who explains: "Most often it's the matador who wins, Senor, but sometim...

The site says "TIG like" and it uses Oxyacetelyne.

Or, purchase a Henrob for $350 (USD), and it'll do everything you've just listed. http://www.cut-like-plasma.com/ And again, you can weld just fine with a (Maxstar 200DX) DC only TIG welder. Again, to weld aluminum, I just run my DC electrode positive, and limit the thickness of aluminum I weld up 1...

Re: re: aberrant pop bottle fun

Well because Hurricane WILMA (bitch) kind of destroyed South Florida, I have been off school for 2 weeks. This has made me kind of board......... I have been playing around with the Potassium Permanganate I got (5lb's) but even that has gotten old (I now am a KMNO4 expert hehe). Watching a recent e...

re: Mythbusters' Rocket

Jeff Jakobs hybrid motors are probably the most impressive on the market for amateurs right now http://www.rockethigh.com/shopping/enter.html (I've posted the link before). His 150mm hybrid produces 1,500 to 2,000 pounds of thrust (10 sec burn time). Enough to launch a moderate space vehicle, if you...

Re: Stickies

What is the protocol to create a sticky? I'd like to put one up on the Rocket forum, mainly links for suger, H2O2 and steam rockets to try and reduce the nimrods wasting forum space with unresearched stupid questions. Nimrods! LOL :) Haven't heard that one in awhile, and sadly, I have to agree. The...

Re: re: how do i build a simple liquid or solid fuel rocket

i kno it would go poof but if i compacted it and put a nozzle with blah blah blah would it make thrust? Hmmm. Let me put this another way. Ever put a small amount of homemade (uncorned) gunpowder on a flat surface, and then stick a lit match into it. Same effect. Thrust only comes when you confine ...

Oh hey again, what's the point?

Hello Paul- I'm for a trade section to this forum, as well as a computer topic. You make no mention of your power requirements. Check Golf cart manufacturers and repairers.

Really would like to know

Who really owns this site. Is it still Kenneths? Or is it Bens, because I'm being left with the impression that the site is no longer being run by Kenneth.
