General Discussion / Re: Getting ready for the storm !!!
« on: February 07, 2010, 08:21:25 PM »
I bet your daughter is liking that. I'm sure it will change when they have to make up the days. I remember on winter in central KS we were snowed in for almost 2 weeks. It was great until the cold hard facts of having to make up the snow days. This was before schools had all of the breaks they have now. It seemed like we spent half the summer in school. Glad to hear you are all doing well. Mike

So Scott is it still snowing? I heard something on our news that they are now measuring in feet instead of inches. BURR  Hope you are safe and dry. I guess I am just glad it is there instead of western KS. When we get those snows they come sideways. BIG DRIFTS. Prayers are with you to be safe. Mike

General Discussion / Re: Climate Warming a hoax?

Bob I would be intrested where you found your information that the world population would fit into the same land mass of Texas with the density of Tokyo? 2nd I would like to know that why is it when you drive into large metropolitan areas in the US at a higher elevation than the actual city the first thing you notice is a huge haze (smog) hovering over those towns? Lastly why is it that we hear that not only large cities are finding the quality of the drinking water is still declining? I do agree that Americans have seen the errors of their ways. The problem is that those errors take decades and maybe even centuries to correct.

Then we still have 3rd world countries still 100 years behind us in how we treat the world. I don't believe that change is to late, I just think we are only in the beginning stages of seeing what the changes will make. The whole world population is going to have to make these changes. The last I heard was poorer countries were still operating factories belching pollutants into the air. These countries are still dumping pollution into the water ways and being carried into our oceans.

I think we are only in the beginning of seeing the damage humans have done to our world.

I have been watching this post and I guess I really don't know what to believe. Its like any other subject in life. There are extremes on both sides. I do know one thing for certain. All of us have to be responsible for this planet. It have been abused to many years. We have lakes that are toxic because farmers and cities have polluted waterways from actual drainage to water run off from rain. we have water supply under the ground showing up with medication residual from drug companies and families dumping medications down the drains. How would you like to be someone who might be allergic to some form of medication and find out it is in the drinking water. Most of these are one that cannot be filtered out. Our country the US is probably one of the leaders of waste being disposed of improperly. All of this is going to come back and haunt us. The population 100 years ago was so much smaller that it was not such a burden to the planet. We have all got to become more responsible to our world. We have future generations that deserve the chance to live in a world with clean air and clean water.That is my opinion and no one will change it.  Thank you for allowing me to be on my soap box.

Waste Vegetable Oil / Re: Looking for a centrifuge
« on: January 29, 2010, 09:12:47 AM »
He rf is there a chance you could take a picture of your complete system. I am getting ready this spring to start collecting and processing wvo. I had another idea of how I was going to clean my oil just because a centrifuge was out of my budget. If you can please send it to mlisenby.ditchdr@cox.net. I promice not to mass market it. I will be lucky if I can build it. I'm pretty good with a wielder but you can always fill in bo boo's with a wielder. Something like this is a little more critical. Mike

General Discussion / Re: Food bank
« on: January 27, 2010, 09:15:00 AM »
Doug you are right. Giving time which sometimes is all we can do is worth many time more than money. People still need to give money but when people give time doing projects which the food bank might not be able to get done if they had to pay.
It seems that I always seem to resort back to personal experiences. Everyone knows I am all about raising money for breast cancer. This is sometimes my cop out. I have to remind myself everyday that the money is needed "BUT" the effort it takes to visit people with the disease cost 10 fold in effort.
It boggles my mind how many people with cancer are left to themselves. It is still a stigmatism that you can get cancer from someone else. Mostly the younger generation feels this way.
Years ago when I was in probably what I thought was my worst times I was not able to give to the local church we attended. It made me feel pretty low so I visited with the minister and found out that I was not the only one who was having hared times. This caused the church problems meeting their monthly budget. I found out that I could volunteer as janitor of the church so they would not have to pay for that service. Let me tell you that was probably the hardest tithe I have ever given. Twice a week plus before special events.
The great thing was that some of the people who used the church other than Sunday and Wednesday left money with the minister for us.
During this period we also had a water heater go out with no chance of replacing it. We came in to clean one night and found a brand new water heater in the church with our names on it and no one around. They didn't want us to be embarrassed about getting it.
That period of time is when I really began to believe that God was alive and well with miracles. I'm glad there are people like you that can fix stuff. I just dont have the ability to do stuff of that. Thank you for being one of those people from you southern neighbor. Mike

MUD is not the word that come to mind. The only reason I was intrested is that unless you are a commercial business no one has 3 phase. I have seen bargains for 3 phase equipment. If the change is made do the machines or motors run properly? If you go on ebay you should be able to find something from a man who is selling the plans for about 10 dollars, which is really not that expensive. I am just curious if he is selling a bill of goods or something that will really work. Thanks, Mike

General Discussion / 3 phase to single phase
« on: January 24, 2010, 08:27:00 PM »
So I see an add on ebay someone selling plans on changing 3 phase to single phase 220 volt. He explains how it is so simple a 4th grader can do it and it work as good as 3 phase. True or false. Thanks, Mike

Things I want to Buy / Re: less than 5 hp lister
« on: January 18, 2010, 12:03:46 AM »
 :) Just FYI I have secured a 2.7 hp engine. i believe that is the correct hp. A friend from Canada will be helping me with this engine to prevent it from trying to fly. I take delivery in late march first of april. The generator will be coming from GA generator. A local body shop has offered to paint the entire engine, generator and trailer the breast cancer pink color. I just have to say that GOD still answers prayers. Mike

OK so it dosent have to be a lister. I just need a slow speed diesel engine. the reason I want a slow speed engine is because I believe it will have that wonderful sound a slow speed engine has to attract attention to the breast cancer booth so people will buy stuff to support breast cancer. It just needs to be able to run without much attention. I plan to run WVO just for the aroma it will put out. Can anyone help. Mike

Things I want to Buy / less than 5 hp lister
« on: January 04, 2010, 04:42:52 AM »
i am still looking for a 3 or 4 hp lister engine for a breast cancer project. Is there no one out there that would part with one or no someone that might sell one? I am on a buget but I know it might be a little expensive to get it. I would prefer it running and be able to run less than 750 rpm's. Thank you, Mike

Ok Chris I see where you are talking about. My next question what is the route of oil flow. Is the filtration done before it enters the berrings or is this just a type of clean up filter to keep the sump clean. Then I noticed another engine that had a pressure valve in that spot. Will this change the oil pressure? Sorry for all of the questions, I just want to help make my engine last as long as possible. DRDEATH, Mike
