Right, in Maine we have low cash flow, shade tree nechanics, junk yard parts, and salted snowy roads.
Toyota and Nissan rust out and crumble long before the drivetrain is bad.
Subaru needs major engine repair long before rust starts.
Volvo still has no rust and good paint long after 15-20 years uses up drivetrain and the 700 sensors in the electrical system.
GM is average while MoPar seems to winbthe race to rust and Ford lags behind a little.
My dad traveled for work, driving all over three states in an industrial sales job. He had all sorts of different add on cup holders over the years in the 1970s and 80s. I recall an early plastic commuter cup that had a little base "puck" that he glued to the top of the dash(!), and the cup would click into it. Edit- He was usually taking coffee from home, but you could get little styrofoam cups to go with the thin lid. I think it was Wendy's or Bob Evans that had the first plastic commuter cup he had.
- The grounded wiring in my remodel uses 12 gauge wire, but the ground wire itself is only 22 or 24 gauge.
I think you know this but the ground wire is of a lighter gauge because if there is a short, the wire will fry and disconnect the circuit before the 12 ga. heats up and burns down your house.....
You're right, I edited my post. The fuse is what disconnects the circuit if there's a short. The ground wire doesn't carry any charge.But if the ground wire melted anywhere but the outlet or fusebox, you would have to rewire the whole circuit. All three wires in the Romex I have been using for decades is the same gauge.
Funny you should mention that. I'm sitting here adjusting the intonation on my new Squire Tele right now, and I am going to order new tuners (the only thing I don't like so far) . . . actually, I'm going to take a belt sander to it as well (rib relief), but that's me, not the guitar.Guitars that absolutely stay in tune!
If they couldn't use wheels back then, how did they move the trains?They couldn't use wheels back then- especially in those large train stations like New York's Grand Central station.
In the 20's and 30's there were flash mobs of tap dancers,
and with the rolling suitcases and such, that would compete with the rhythmic sounds of the tap dancing.
