Monday Overnight Thread – 03/27/2023 [Roger Ball]

Crop Duster.JPG

[Roger Ball is a long-time, loyal Ace of Spades moron who comments under a different nickname and often corresponds with me and some of the other Cobs, offering up feedback and content suggestions. He is a former Navy pilot who flies everything from commercial jets for {huge airline} to paper airplanes with his progeny. I challenged him to once again take some of his content offerings and come up with a backup ONT to share with the horde. Thanks for coming out of the bullpen again tonight, R.B. – Buck]

DUST to DUST…not what you think

Greetings, horde. It is always an honor to fill these pages with…uh…you know the thing.

How about if we start tonight by trying to get some history right? We can look at WATTS UP WITH THAT 2022 Media-Climate Fact Check.

"This summary serves as a fact check on the top ten disasters that mainstream media attributes to climate change."

What boring lives we would have without disasters, no? Scott Johnson at Power Line addresses the “Extermination Nation” theme of the climate mafia: THE EXTINCTION NEXT TIME

Paul Ehrlich:”Oh, humanity is not sustainable. To maintain our lifestyle (yours and mine, basically) for the entire planet, you’d need five more Earths. Not clear where they’re gonna come from.”

Man. Sounds lake an expert if there ever was one, eh?

John Dutton (Yellowstone) might have a good perspective:

Via HAMMER, VDH weighs in on our current history in the making: The Baleful Cargo of Woke Diversity Worship

"We forget that what once separated the Western world from the rest was not race, climate, or natural bounty, but its gradual creation of meritocracies replacing the pre-civilizational rule of the clan, the tribe, or the race."

The tribes of grifters and looters lie and are supported by the Propaganda Media. And we are letting them win. For now.

DEI - DESTROY EVERY INSTITUTION, like our election system.

RAMEN BROTH CHOO CHOO

It has ditched regular fuel to run on a particular kind of biodiesel made, among other delicacies, from leftover ramen broth. It leaves a delicious aroma in the air and is less damaging to the mountainous landscapes and rice fields that it travels through.

Hey, as long as we have Ramen noodles, we’ll be just fine. Food and transportation for a free society. I think I would like the Japanese more if it hadn’t been for that whole Pearl Harbor, World War Two thing, but credit where credit is due.

Pilot Time

Crop dusting. Never have done but I wouldn't mind trying it. It looks like a lot of fun and a little dangerous. It's also a precision industry with GPS guided spray patterns and excellent turbine powered airplanes. Why, there's even a you tube channel for Ag flying! Ag Aviation Adventures, hosted by Tyson and Cally, has almost 20,000 subscribers.

They have good AV production quality and story lines. I do have a bone to pick, though. The following vid, Flying One of the First Ag Planes Ever Produced! talks about the Snow S-2 duster designed and built by pioneer Leland Snow. Now, I will never take anything away from Mr. Snow as he clearly was a great visionary and innovative force for agricultural flying.

I would be remiss, however, if I did not address the history that Tyson inexplicably misses. One of the real pioneers for aerial agricultural application was Collett E Woolman, who, in "1923, Huff-Daland Dusters, Inc.—the forerunner of Delta Airlines—did the first commercial dusting of crops with its own specially built aircraft." (Tyson does provide a couple of links at the bottom of the video narrative.)

There is some disagreement on the exact dates in various media, but a general "mid 1920's" will cover it, and it was certainly before the 1950s when Leland built his first Snow S-1. The Delta Flight Museum is a great place to go for the history of the Huff-Deland Puffer and subsequent Delta Dusters. I was surprised that even the commenters did not mention the Huff-Deland "Puffers". There are only two of those historic biplanes known to exist. One is in theSouthern Museum of Flight in Birmingham. The other is in the National Air and Space Museum

The definitive expert on the subject is retired Delta Captain and Georgia Aviation Hall of Fame inductee Jim Hoogerwerf. His extensive research is reflected in the following 2021 20-minute video presentation. It’s likely too much inside baseball for many but is offered for historical purposes.

[Shameless plug: The Delta Flight Museum is also a great place to spend a couple of hours, but be sure to check the website home page for scheduled hours and closings. t's an extremely popular event venue. – Roger]

There. You are now informed about an important industry that has a critical role in feeding (all kinds of food) and clothing (cotton) the masses.

Thanks again for spending a little time here tonight.

Final words: “Just be nice.”

Still working my way through Stephen Baxter's The Time Ships...

The Time Traveler has gone back 50 million years and jumpstarted the human race a bit earlier than the original timeline suggested...

When he gets back to his "present" (1891), he discovers that humanity has long abandoned Earth and now it's a frozen wasteland. Whoops!

29 Thank you 'Roger Ball'.

Long ago, after the most violent hard landing I've ever experienced in a civilian airliner, the Captain was bidding goodbye to the passengers as they exited the aircraft. The old lady in line in front of me paused and asked the pilot, "Captain, may I ask you something?" Of course, Ma'am. "Did we land or were we shot down?"

That wasn't you, was it?

It's hardly a unique plot...But in this case, the Time Traveler gets stranded there by accident while fleeing an alternate Britain where WWI never stopped and the cities are now covered in vast domes to protect against gas attacks. Some folks from that era come looking for him in the past, but they get bombed by a German Messerschmidt armed with nukes. The survivors manage to create a society long before humans should have walked the Earth, thus advancing civilization by 50 million years.

Pretty wild stuff.

I recall that show. Had an interesting premise and Fox cancelled it. Probably for the best. Fox also cancelled Almost Human which also had an interesting premise and could have been very good but Fox cancelled it. Karl Urban was in it. Fox also cancelled the brilliant Firefly. Fox kind of sucks.

Knew two cropduster pilots. One older and a WW2 pilot. He "got ready" to fly crops by downing about a pint of whiskey. Never heard he had any problems.

The second took the landing gear, both sides, off a plane in NoDak, landed it in some tall Johnson grass. His crew came out, jacked it up, put new gear on it, replaced the prop and he finished the job the same day.

Whereas acknowledging everyone is a sinner, keeping an eye open for bad people, and running a society on "leave me alone" and greed seems to work.

110 The sound and sight of cropdusters is common here. About a year ago, I was out riding my bike and I hear the unmistakable sound of the swooping and then gunning it to gain altitude quickly, though it seemed way too loud for a 300 HP cropduster. I didn't see the plane until I got to a big clearing-and there it was-a Navy E-2 Hawkeye doing a cropduster type dive, then long level flight maybe 40 feet off the ground over a cornfield, then back up. I suppose they were practicing landing on a carrier, then being waved off. I bet they were having fun. Oceana Naval Air Station is about 40 miles away.

My initial choice would be any battle where I got a clean shot at Genghis Khan, or possibly Muhammad. But I've concluded that I just don't know how things would work out; quite possibly they'd be worse, so I'm now a firm believer in noninterventionism when it comes to the past.

114 I was at the Oregon Timber show this spring (I hate Eugene but it was there) and met a guy who does crop dusting with a large drone. It carries the GPS, the spray rig and 8 gallons of mix, and he claims to get better coverage, cheaper than with a crop duster, and he can do areas that a ground sprayer couldn't get to

I thought he should also spray roads, because that is one of the Spring jobs a lot of people hate to do.

No. An entire class of student pilots took off for travel over a weekend. The patch on their name tag was a variant of their CO's name, with their real rank.

Weather funneled them to an AF base, where they got in a refueling argument. The Base Command Duty Officer took their names down, getting more and more confused. Monday, the local BG called their CO. Who was not amused.

225 The Chili Parking Lot Cats:
We managed to capture all of them, 3 one week and the remaining 2 a week later. The boys are all fixed but the girls are pregnant so we'll have to wait for the new kittens before spaying. I hope they have small litters! The cats are quite friendly, some more than others. The boys took longer but I imagine that getting fixed contributed to their discomfort and wariness. The litter is males: 2 gray, 1 black; females: 1 gray, 1 black. If the daddy(ies) that did the deed isn't a sibling then the kittens my turn out more varied.

My two daughters have started a GoFundMe if anyone wants to help out and it will be very appreciated - link is below. The vet has been very helpful by not demanding all the bill be paid at once.

I'll post updates from time to time, possibly in the Pet thread on Saturdays if I make it, as I seem to miss it and read it when its too late to post.

238 The link for the Minimata Trolley story makes the unsupported claim that the emissions of the biodiesel-burning engine are less harmful to the local environment than those of the one burning petro diesel. Why, exactly? In both cases, the exhaust gases are going to be CO2, water vapor, possibly nitrogen oxides, and soot. Plants need the first three, and they don't really care about a little soot.

279 238 The link for the Minimata Trolley story makes the unsupported claim that the emissions of the biodiesel-burning engine are less harmful to the local environment than those of the one burning petro diesel. Why, exactly? In both cases, the exhaust gases are going to be CO2, water vapor, possibly nitrogen oxides, and soot. Plants need the first three, and they don't really care about a little soot.

304 I'm Houston adjacent. And I think if a strong (d) contender ran against SJL, they'd wipe the floor with her.

Ms. Triple Crown Weave is kept in her district by "the machine", and her voters go for her out of default, as no one else from that district is really allowed to challenge her.

Keep in mind, SJL holds NO Committee Chairmanships, even after decades in office. Because (d) leadership knows that she's dumb as a rock, a self-serving publicity seeker, but one who brings absolutely nothing to the (d) strategy table, other than her easily duplicatable, dependable (d) party line vote.

She is the subject of much derision in and around Houston, even among (d)s. And the "machine" that touts her won't have the same power in other Houston districts. You wanna buy stock in SJL? Short the trade, and... profit!

307 Regarding Ramen Train article:

Biodiesel is actually the type of environmentalism activity that I can support. As a restaurant worker, we would have to change fryer oil about every 3-4 days as it broke down and accumulated particulate matter.

Because it is illegal to dump oil into the sewer system, it was taken out to a used oil receptacle and a company had to be paid to come pump it out and haul it off for you.

But because some frugal individuals wanted to save money by driving biodiesel engines, they instead set up a co-op that would bring you a grease receptacle for no charge and then pay you a small amount of money each month for taking the used cooking oil off of your hands (usually $15-$25 range).

This was a net savings to small restaurant owners in the neighborhood of $500 per year and resulted in a profit of about $20-300 each year from the oil.

No one insisted that every car run on biodiesel, forced you into some government program, filled you with virtue signaling stuff about saving the planet, none of that. Just cheap bastards recognizing an opportunity and partnering with businesses to the benefit of both parties.

There is a long-established industry that takes used oil, used fats, and bones, etc., and renders them for lard or tallow. They supply pet food makers, and the soap industry. This has been going on for generations. The biodiesel peeps are not exploiting a hitherto-wasted resource. And the trans-esterification process that turns waste oils into biodiesel requires large amounts of methanol and potassium hydroxide, and yields glycerin as a waste product. What becomes of that?

Waste disposal is big business. I doubt that used fryer oil has much intrinsic value. If you go on "alternate energy" sites, you'd be surprised at how many greenies think that waste cooking oils all go to landfills. They are completely ignorant about the rendering business. If the biodiesel types outbid the renderers, then the renderers will have to outbid the biodiesel makers, and the end result is more expensive pet food and cosmetics, I guess.

According to the manual, when welding with AC, the HF start voltage for the arc will remain on, so the arc doesn't extinguish on the zero crossing.

I will try to set it up at a friend's shop tomorrow, where he has a bottle of argon, and try some welds in various modes. It can do stick welding, too.

You'll want a good supply of tungstens. Remember, Steel and SS, you want a point. For Aluminum, you'll ball your tungsten.

Also, you'll want a dedicated grinder wheel for sharpening the tungstens. If you grind the tungsten on a wheel you've ground other shit with, it will get the tungsten contaminated with the other metal and sort of mess up.

I'm reading. I'm about 20 years out of it. Balling tungstens is pretty much a thing of the past, with balance control. That is your AC squarewave spends more time negative that positive.

You get enough cleaning on the positive side without too much heat. So, with a balance control, you can grind to a point. Now, it will get a little ball on the end of the point, but not much, like a full 50/50 wave ball.

Heh. 120V ain't too hot for welding. I have a dinky little 120V flux-core "MIG" welder box. It was basically a toy. Never tripped a breaker with it, but with MIG, the voltage is much lower.

With stick, your running somewhere between 20 - 30V, higher side usually. So 30*120/120 is roughly 30A. Yep, that's gonna pop a breaker.

Speaking of purging ones gas lines. I did a little MIGing today, on an old spike tooth drag harrow. Damn hitch frame had cracked next to the top link piece and was sort of flopping. So, I MIGed it up. Real pretty, it did.

No, I hadn't run that MIG in a while, and when it sits idle, the argon inside will diffuse out of all the lines, even behind the gas valve over time. One gets air all in the line. So one needs to purge it.

I learned that the hard way one time. Arc started, sputtering, and made an oxidized mess for the first inch or so. I realized it was air, and it needed purging beforehand.

I purged the hell of out it.

I just watched one. I hope AOP is still here. Anyway, it was DCEN welding of thick Al plate. I'd mentioned that. You use pure helium gas. Helium makes a hotter arc than Argon. Well, what it does is more uniformly distribute the heat. If you looked at the temperature of the arc profile, you'll see argon sort of concentrates in the middle, while helium makes a more spherical distribution.

Thick plate, high current, helium. You can "burn" the oxides off with going to AC. What they do sometime is do a root pass with DCEN like that, clean it up, then lay a top pass on AC to make it real pretty.

408 I've sent pics of a recent project to Mis Hum for the Hobby/Bodging Thread.

You can there laugh at what I have tried to pass off as "welding".

Does it hold? If so, it's good welding.

Pretty is not the be all and end all. Strength is. Sometimes, those are a counter purposes. Many times they go together, but sometimes you have to sacrifice pretty for structural integrity.

I was just watching a Youtube video on shooting arc welding. It's all about the "arc shot". Money shot, arc shot.

Would you believe you can do with damn smart phone camera. Well, some of the higher end one. And you can just put a clear protector in front of the camera lens. Some do this. They make apps that can turn the exposure way down. You can put a welding shade lens in front, but it turns out that doesn't work so well for a nice, clear video.

Beyond that, you get into various filter lenses for some higher end digital cameras. Those are what get those incredibly clear videos.

You can actually get a setup to mount your smart phone on your welding helmet. It has a protective case for the phone.

414 Hell, I think I'm lucky when I dial in the just-right setting on the auto darkening lens.

Ain't gonna introduce no camera into the mix to document my molten fuckupery!

There is an outfit called "MeltTools" that makes specialized welding cameras, "Melt View" is the name. I was looking for prices -- not published, inquire for price quote. So, probably a bit spendy....

Anyway, they make cameras that fit right on the TIG torch. Also, have cameras rated to operate with 2" of the arc. Water cooled.

417 Good night, Horde, I need to sleep, sorry for killing the blog.

418 Just watching the replay of Ingraham's show. The segment with Steven Miller and Miranda Devine was really a bad look for both of these ladies.

One might say that Mr. Miller hit back hard in support of Trump. Actually it's a tossup between the two as to which was more disrespectful to not only Trump but Miller, too.

No link, sorry.
