    anyone here work in NDT?

    I'm exploring career change options because I'd like to be able to have work that's a little less location dependent. Right now, downtown Toronto is the only possible place in this entire country for me (and my wife) to make a living due to poor career choices. So we commute almost 3 hours a...

    I always assume people that do this must be off-duty cops. Everyone I know that's done this has been bent over when caught.

    Michelin Pilot Road 2 vs 3 vs 4 vs other?

    So the last time I bought new tires the PR3 were brand spanking new and I got a deal on PR2s and I was very happy with them for many many kilometers more than 10,000 for sure.

    Carpenters! Question about cabinet plywood

    So I'm going to make some cabinet boxes for a family room built in. How do I choose what to construct them out of if I'm indifferent to the species?

    Adjusting fork spring tension

    2011 Suzuki Gladius if that matters. I find the suspension way too "bouncy" or "soft". I want it tighter. I got the back tightened up all the way and it's better and will have to do until I get the GSXR shock in there someday. Anyway the front, the service manual has this to say, and nothing...
