    Can someone explain a DC electromagnetic generator in lamen terms for me?

    Well what's the fun in that silly :) I appreciate the thought and have considered it, but would rather enjoy building one. Think it would be fun. And I like learning how things work. I have my hands on one, but having one doesn't really answer my questions so I figured I would ask. Thank you

    Can someone explain a DC electromagnetic generator in lamen terms for me?

    I have been researching generators lately, whilst contemplating building my own wind powered generator. I think I understand the general layout: a central magnetic core that rotates with an outside ring of conductive coils spun in specific alternating turns with their own magnetic cores. If I am...

    Where to buy pressure and temperature tank gauges?

    Thank you for the help, I am communicating with the first 2 companies via email. Another thing that might help is if anyone knows if there is a compressed air tank with a temperature gauge, attached that will work too :) Pressure gauges for compressed air are very easy to find, I am just having...

    Where to buy pressure and temperature tank gauges?

    Sorry, forgot to mention I need it for compressed air. Not a liquid :)

    Where to buy pressure and temperature tank gauges?

    Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone knew where I could buy tank gauges that read both the pressure and temperature inside the tank. They can be digital, in fact if it is cheap enough it would be preferred. Does anybody have any ideas? Northern Tool at least the one here didn't, Lowe's didn't...

    Need precise and perfectly balanced balls fabricated, any ideas where?

    Sorry yes I do mean uniform density, as to cause the ball to be completely balanced. The size of the ball isn't quite as important as its mass, which is of course reliant upon the density of the metal used. I would need a ~25kg large ball and a ~5kg small ball. The small ball needs to pass...

    Need precise and perfectly balanced balls fabricated, any ideas where?

    Haha sorry, forget with engineers you go to crazy decimals. I would consider that more than accurate enough. Are they balanced? I basically need the small balls center to go through the large balls center. Its just a piece for a project I have been working on for a while, but all parts of the...

    Need precise and perfectly balanced balls fabricated, any ideas where?

    I am working on a hobby project. I need 2 perfectly spherical, perfectly balanced, pure metal (ie. pure titanium, aluminum, etc.) balls made, and then I need one (the larger one) to be precisely drilled through the center. It is essential that everything is done in an extremely accurate manner...
