Re: Anti-fox device - Help needed!!

Tom...You might want to check to see what kind of fox it is and whether it is state or federally protected wild life. If it is you can wind up paying a fairly stiff fine for hurting or harassing it, and as far as moving it to another area, if I remember correctly you can only move it 1/4 mile from t...

Re: Would you have this cutters for sale ?

Externet...The set of cutters from Tradesmanchoice.com made by Facom should be OK for cutting a wide range of piano or hardened wire. If my memory serves me correctly, music wire was/is drawn and hardened to RC42-46. The jaws on the above mentioned set of cutters are supposed to be hardened to RC63-...

Re: cannot get usb to LPT adaptor to work.

dacflyer...When I first put my HP Laserjet 5P printer on my new computer I bought a usb to parallel cable. I was told that it was plug & play. I was not told that I had to go into Win 7 and change the port from LPT1 to USB001. I did this by going into printer properties and selecting "customize your...

PC board coatings

Good day all! Does anyone know how to dissolve the (conformal?) coating on the bottom of pc boards. I have tried all sorts of chemicals I.E. lacquer thinner, rust remover (naval jelly), brake parts cleaner, rubbing alcohol and nail polish remover, all to no avail. Seems like there should be somethin...

Re: Pissed off with service manual...

Miguel...Here is the link. Sorry but I don't know how to make it a clickable(sic?) link. I'm sure just copying it and pasting it into your web browser will work. Hope the info works for you.

Re: Pissed off with service manual...

Miguel... Maybe I am missing something here but, my viewing of the service manual does not have any pages #43, 44, 45 or 46. If I go to pages 71, 72 & 73 it shows schematics for the main pwr supply and other pwr supplies. If you want I can download the copy of the manual & email to you. Please advis...

Re: Another FireFox question

Thank you MrAL. I do not what the problem is, hence my posting here. It seems to be a mystery to everyone I have spoken to including ADOBE & firefox tech support. I did not have that problem when I ran Win98se, SP3. I checked in the registry and I do have a "NPSWF32.dll" in there. As per your sugges...

Another FireFox question

I cannot get Adobe Flash to load into FF. I have been told that there is something the matter with my registry that is not allowing the "NPSWF32.DLL" file to be loaded in the "HKLM Adobe" registry area. I have also been told to copy the "NPSWF32.DLL" file & copy it to my system files. Does anybody h...

Re: Grundig satalite powerline modem question

Dac...go to "manualparadise.com". They say they have the English or German manual for this model. Once you get to the Grundig page just keep going down the list. You will notice that they are in alphabetical order. The website is self explanatory(even I was able to understand it.) Good luck & take c...

Re: S/N marking that won't wash off

When I was in sheet metal & electronics we used to use "self etching ink" that we bought from our silkscreen supplier. It was approved by the military as a "permanent marking device". It did not have to be SS on. It could be rubber stamped on as well.

Good luck, take care
