Ah, so you had Stacey's mom sew it up. We have an incredible Pfaff 1471 Creative that I inherited from my grandma. Was using an old Singer that chewed up more fabric for me than it ever stitched,...

Thinking about $200, maybe a bit more for something highly rated but probably a fairly hard cap at $300.

I like the look of those BMW pants. Maybe they make them with the proper...

The 4Runner and GX470 are both still made in Japan at the Tahara plant. Same place where they used to make our older mini-truck Hilux, too. The 4Runner and GX are essentially Land Cruisers Prados. ...

An Areostitch suit would be nice but not in the cards for the foreseeable future. One may come up used or I win the lottery and get a new one, but for now I need pants. I already have an...

Street/ADV Pants

What do we like? Trying to figure out what to look for and what I don't need.

Overpants? Seem to me to be a poor choice for protection and probably pretty uncomfortable in the end. Probably...

Is this the case, since I agree 100% that the 03+ 4Runner visibility is bad. We had one for a short time and not being able to see out was one of her primary complaints. But looking at cars now it...

Your PDF link is to your local computer. Just make sure you follow the cut chart for the NMO150 and not one for a 1/4 wavelength. Also, 5/8 wavelength isn't necessarily the actual length because of...

The whips are interchangeable so that would be fine if the diameters are close. For example no issue cutting the whip from a Larsen NMO27 to the same length as your old NMO150. The only way they...

It would be interesting to see a 60/62 vs. 80 vs 100/200 to see the growth over time. A recent wagon to a FJ40 is beyond an unfair comparison. Sort of like a new 4 door Wangler next to a WWII...

A drop of 0.575V sounds right but the leads are reversed for a regular diode. You'd want red (+) to the anode (fat side of the triangle) and black (-) to the cathode (line side) to measure forward...

Do you know if the diode is a transient suppressor in the this circuit? I assume it is, which would mean it's in parallel with the coil with the cathode (the line side) to positive.
