    TeachMe, I just looked up some numbers. It shows 7 billion compared to ~146 billion for Mississippi and 1.6 trillion to 3.9 trillion for Cali. Hoover Institute says: "California’s state and local government debt is roughly $1.6 trillion, which includes a proper accounting of the state’s...

    Have any of you had a good outcome videoing your welding? What did you learn to improve things?

    I'm now thinking a bandpass filter in the 630 [nm] range. The image would most likely end up with an undesirable color at 630 [nm], so set the camera to record in black and white or convert it in post-OMHO. I think I'll buy a low-cost filter to try first.

    Have any of you had a good outcome videoing your welding? What did you learn to improve things?

    I agree with you about Jody's work. There are several out there that are doing very clear videos. This is a really good example: It seems that some are using auxiliary lighting while blocking as much light transmission as possible from the welding arc. Are they using longband/shortband filter...

    Sorry, I know it stinks. That's why I'm asking. Double your money back is on the way.

    Have any of you had a good outcome videoing your welding? What did you learn to improve things?

    This is my effort with an older recorder. It is on thick, uncleaned aluminum and uses about 310 amps. Too late, I noticed that my tungsten was too far away on this effort. This isn't a bead; it's just a start with the torch and camera fixed in one position.

    A question for the gear guys.

    Shown in the video is a thirty-tooth gear on a thirty-and-one-half-tooth gear blank. The gear on the right is standard size: Same as above, but having a complete tooth profile shift:

    Starter Pinion/Ring Gear Mesh

    Looking into the aftermarket may give you a new thought: https://tiltonracing.com/product/102t-5-5-aluminum-bellhousing-kits/ I saw a 99-tooth starter ring gear on there.

    EG, make'm all like this and save the unnecessary material for something important.

    Not at all. ;) I'm at work, but will get right to the under-cut gears after.

    This is to the extreme for pointed. I'll make an animated GIF showing it revolving if there is doubt.

    A question for the gear guys.

    30.375/5 = 6.075 Because it is profile-shifted only 3/8 of a tooth, there isn't much tooth pointing.

    A question for the gear guys.

    This is my best version of the 54-tooth gear. It has a pressure angle of 24.23 degrees (This is based on the over-pin measurements). Also, it is cut .06327 deeper than normal (per side). I agree. I changed my mind on the one I originally had as a 4.5 mod, which I now think is a 5.5 dp. Has...

    A question for the gear guys.

    If you look at his pic, the extra depth makes it look like it comes from a secondary operation. The radius at the bottom looks too round, like it was milled. I agree with you about posters who post and then disappear. I hate to be blunt.

    A question for the gear guys.

    I have to break my promise. Sorry. I looked at the OP's photo: I see very little wear. So, my method of rotating the tooth flanks to match the over-pin measurements isn't the best. These gears are profile-shifted to the inside. The only way to do this right, IMHO, is to generate an involute...

    A question for the gear guys.

    I promise to quit after this. The 54-tooth gear looks like one of a set that might be used on a sheet-metal roller. Looks like a non-standard hob would be needed—extra deep teeth.
