Re: Rock2Fox's Solar Power System

Would it be possible to replace the ac compressor motor with a dc big enough to do the job? Maybe that would be a cheap way to go?

I can't see much more than that needing ac power on a freezer.

Re: Diabetics in the PAW

You had better watch out. It looks like these guys might just harvest your pancreas while you slept. Don't worry you'll just sleep through it. You won't feel a thing. If I was that worried about it I would find out how to make that drug and work towards that end. Diabetics are about the safest when ...

I think you can clarify out that yeast by adding simple gelatin.

Re: Buying silver

Depending on dates they are WAY worse than anything American, Sometimes as low as 50% before they cut out silver altogether. And each denomination had differing amounts in different years.

Re: Solar Panels and EMP?

I would hazard to guess that if you need a license to use them you might have to provide ID to get all the parts to make them work.

Re: Solar Panels and EMP?

The US army says that to protect from EMP power spikes you should never leave wire coiled up laying around on the ground. Like an electro magnet the coils collect and then amplify the power sending it down the line to the equipment. Keep power lines buried and as short as possible. Keep everything w...

I have a load of old Mexican silver pesos. Any idea of how to extract the silver? They are from .900 to .750 silver depending on the year. They are obviously not worth much on the collectors market.
