Nanos689415dJust resolder the connection you might suggest..
Already done that three times now !
Each time I cut a bit off the cable to make it shorter as I'm not sure where the issue is..
Each time it doesn't fix it..
Now the cable is so short I've had to move equipment around so the cable can reach !
So instead of joining lots of little bits of odd wire together, I just splashed out $2 for a new cable via Ebay.
Ah the joys of suddenly being wealthy enough to afford such luxuries instead of scavenging in the street for thrown away junk to fix things.
Not that you find much stuff in the streets here being as its mostly desert..
"Some more sand governor.."
I'm confused, isn't there more sand than we know what to do with ?
M1sf3t164515d@Nanos no, as with most environmental articles, they didn't bother to go into detail on what sand mining actually entails.
They're are three categories that I know of, masonite, a really fine grain white sand used for cement, frac sand (i may have just butchered that word) which is used by the oil field while either drilling or capping (don't remember) and then you have regular old beach sand which is whats left after the other two are processed.
To add to the confusion, most gravel shakers don't possess the grates fine enough to process sand so to do it at the same time (the bi-product of wash gravel is a ginormous amount of sand) you have to invest in a second plant (min $50k) or put it back in the hole for some other jackass to come dig up and rehandle.
Unless of course you want to do what we did and turn the hole into a modest sized lake. In which case you end up with a nice rec area for the family and a giant 300 ft tall sand dune beside it for the next 10+ years 🙄
1. cut the power cable altogether.
2. increase the power levels in the cirquit to create electric arc
3. tesla coil speaker!
So what do they take sand off the beach for by the bucket load so to speak ?
By they, I assume farmers, as those are generally the only kind of folk around here with large machinery the leaves tracks on the beaches here and big holes behind !
I just assumed they was using it to make concrete..
