That is the whole idea of foam pads, they start at 4" and compress in those parts of your body that aren't flat. The heavier you are the more they compress.

SOURCE: New brakes fit perfectly but are too thick for calipers.

The caliper has to have the pod looking things pushed back into themselves. Here you want to be sure to loosen the top to the brake mater cylinder and cover it with a large rag to keep brake fluid from flowing all over your paint.

Will 51 cubic foot of foam insulation, cover 400 square feet of a wall?


That depends upon how thick the foam insulation is. That is the only way to compute from cubic feet to square feet.

To simplify, assume the foam is 1 foot wide by 1 foot thick by 51 feet long. That is 51 cubic feet of foam. If you slice the block lengthwise at 1 inch intervals, you get 12 slices, each 1 foot wide by 51 feet long by 1 inch thick. This is 51 square feet of coverage at 1 inch. You would be able to cover 51x12, or 612 square feet.

Increase the thickness of the slice to 1-1/2 inches, you only get 8 slices, or coverage for 408 square feet.

Any thicker than that, and you won't get enough coverage for 400 square feet.

Cheap and easy way to collapse a caliper


When replacing disc brake pads it is always nescesary to collapse the caliper again as the piston that presses the pads against the rotor is protruding too far for the (thicker) new pads to fit. Using screwdrivers and such can damage the caliper, so there are several tools available for purchase. I just figured I'd make my own.
Refer to the diagram
Use a piece of flat bar(B), more or less 1 by 4 inches and about 3/8 inch thick. Find a bolt and nut(A) that fit to each other, let's say at least half inch thick and about 2 inches long. Drill a hole in the flat bar, big enough for the bolt to fit through, weld the nut over the hole and you're good to go.
When collapsing the caliper(5), assemble the newly made tool(just screw the bolt(3) into the nut) place the flat bar(2) against the piston(1), use an old pad(4) and fit it into the caliper (this is something for the bolt to push against), and uncrew the bolt until the piston has been pressed back into the caliper.

Tip

To open watch case, hold back of watch up with arrow pointer on the back plate...


If you don't have the proper watchmaker's tools (and you'll need several!) I recommend that you not do this yourself. You could scratch the case or damage the movement if you don't know what you're doing. If it's a water resistant watch the gasket also needs to be replaced once it is opened. DO NOT reuse a gasket! For about $8 any watch or jewelry2_bing.gif store can change the battery and renew the gasket for you. Most Sears stores will do it while you shop.

Ir 33o double side printing problem


Depending where the paper is getting jammed at, take of all rubber pads off the right door. Several places like on each side of the guides. I can think of six pads that need to be removed. They are black and about 1/4 inch wide. Sometime they get sticky and cause the guides in the duplex area to not function correctly.

What is the difference between the iPod nano and iPod mini?


The currently shipping iPod nano replaces the iPod mini. Both models use the "Clickwheel" (which places pressure sensitive navigation buttons underneath the scroll wheel) introduced with the iPod mini, but the similarities between the iPod mini and iPod nano end with the "Clickwheel". The iPod mini shipped in a colorful "ultra-portable (3.6 inch tall, 2.0 inch wide, 0.5 inch thick) lightweight anodized aluminum" case available in five stylish colors--silver, gold, pink, blue and green (four colors from February 23, 2005 to September 7, 2005 with gold no longer offered), each with a 1.67-inch "white backlit" monochrome LCD display. The iPod mini has either 4.0 GB or 6.0 GB hard drives to hold approximately 1,000 or 1,500 songs (encoded at 128-bit), respectively. The iPod nano, on the other hand, ships in a "impossibly small" 3.5 inch tall, 1.6 inch wide, and 0.27 inch thick "iBook white" or jet black and stainless steel case with a 1.5-inch "blue white backlit" 16-bit color LCD display. The iPod nano has either 2.0 GB or 4.0 GB of solid state Flash Memory and can hold approximately 500 or 1000 songs, respectively, in 128-Kbps AAC format and up to 25,000 "iPod nano-viewable" photographs
