The Practicality Of Diamond Shapes On Measuring Tape

Unless you use a measuring tape daily, you may have never even noticed those small diamond-shaped details on the top scale. And, even if you have, we bet that you only have a best guess as to what they might mean.They’re not just cute, they’re also super helpful! What do these black diamonds mean anyways? The black diamond is meant to signify the center area between studs in a home or building. The symbol will always be set at the 19.2-inch mark, but to best use it to its advantage, you must first take the time to understand the “8-foot rule.” As the man in the video says: “Many tape measures add red numbers (or some other graphical standout) every 16-inches, a very common spacing for studs in house framing. This spacing allows for six supports in each 8-foot length. If you want to locate a center between the studs, the black diamond is your best bet” The woodworker goes on explaining: “If you divide the 8-foot space we have been using by 5 we get a spacing of 19.2”. The black diamonds on the tape measure represent that spacing. The first black diamond is at 19.2” and after that black diamonds appear at 38.4”, 57.6”, 76.8” and 96”, or 8-feet. That is one less stud for every 8-feet of wall, counting the beginning and end studs”. Pretty cool, huh? Basically, if you know that your walls were built following this standard stud placement formula, then, instead of breaking out that cumbersome stud detector, you should be able to just use your measuring tape to locate them.

'Safest bike ever' devised by British entrepreneur

A British inventor says his Babel bike is the safest bicycle ever produced. Crispin Sinclair - son of famous British inventor Sir Clive Sinclair - hopes the bike's safety cage, double seatbelt, and host of other measures will inspire non-cyclists to get in the saddle.

This Is Ingenious Idea For Homemade Electric Jet Engine2m33s

This Is Ingenious Idea For Homemade Electric Jet Engine

This model is built to simulate a real jet engine, even though is electric. Is very basic so everybody can build it. The way I designed and built my jet engine model is not the best way to do it. I can imagine a million ways to build a better model, more realistic, more reliable and even easier to build. But for now this is what I got.This is a model of a jet engine with a scale 1:90. It was made with an electric motor that moves with a set of gears and with a flywheel that spins in 16:1 ratio, which was taken from a flywheel-driven toy car. It's cool to see where these parts are originating from. The best part about the flywheel is that it makes the jet engine model sound like a real full-size jet engine! That's pretty awesome. It's always impressive when you can replicate the real life sounds of an object. This is one cool contraption, you have to be very intelligent to create something this impressive. Be careful, it sounds so realistic, you might think you're taking off! The parts that make up the inside consists of the motor, magnets, the gearbox with flywheel and the electromagnet to generate current for the N1 gauge. There are many other parts apart from these, but mostly it boils down to them. When everything is put together, you get a running model of an electric jet engine and one may think you are at an airport. Amazing!
