21 Sep 11 Testing compressor motor insulation to Ground: Contour HD POV.

In the following video I am testing the integrity of the winding insulation to ground. I am wearing both the Drift POV and Contour HD POV. This video is from the Contour HD.

In this episode about the YORK magnetic centrifugal chiller (YMC2), Buddy Doll (vice president of equipment sales, Johnson Controls) explains why people who have heard a YMC2 chiller in operation dont even believe its running. With a sound level that does not exceed the volume level of a telephone dial tone, the YMC2 is about half as quiet as other magnetic-bearing centrifugal chillers. To learn more about the YMC2, visit

11 Sep 11 DIY Motorcycle Shock Spring Compressor

Here’s a handy tool for disassembling motorcycle and ATV shocks. This tool provides a reasonably safe way of dealing with the rather high forces involved in shock disassembly. The measurements in the video are specific to 2004-2006 Harley Davidson Sportsters. Other years, makes, and models may work with no changes. The basic idea should easily adapt to many applications. I used a CNC mill for the machining, but simpler tools can certainly be substituted. Tools required: A way to bore a 2-1/8″ to 2-1/4″ hole (mill/lathe/drill press, cutting tools, hole saws, etc) A way to bore two 7/16″ or 15/32″ holes (drill press and twist drill bits) Welder (most any machine will do) A set of wrenches or sockets Materials list: 5″ x 5″ x 1/2″ aluminum or steel plate Two 13″ lengths of 7/16″ all thread rod Two 7/16″ nuts & washers 5″ x 1/2″ bolt 1/2″ nut Two 1/2″ washers
