Working at a lumber yard - 11 replies

Been a long, long time since I was on here. Living the life… of an overworked, and un(der)paid college student. Anyway I interviewed a couple weeks ago for a job at a lumber yard, and it sounds like it came down the pike. Moneys not bad, and it sounds like 40hrs/wk. Has anyone ever worked at a lumber yard who might be able to give ...

Anybody ever build model aircraft? - 18 replies

Its pretty much official that some time in the near future I will probably be moving to an apartment. Obviously as such cabinetry is probably out :P. But one thing that caught my eye, which seems can be done with really nothing more than a few hand tools, such as a dove tail saw, a coping saw, and a few x-acto knives, is model aircraft buildin...

CFM data for D55141 Compressor - 0 replies

Here are the CFM rating: CFM PSI 1.8 100 3.3 90 5.4 60 7.8 40 The numbers are kinda sparatic, so I guess that is the reason no formula exists. So once again, its for the D55141 Compressor.
