Worm Gears Explained

Worm gears are highly useful gear types that allow for enormous control over the speed and movement of a gear system. These gears can provide a large amount of gear reductions in a system, from about 20 to 1 to over 300 to 1, which is highly useful in delicate systems that require precise control. Worm gears are designed so that the worm part of the system can turn the gear, but the gear cannot turn the worm part on its own. This makes the gear safer, and will prevent forcible breaks and turns in the gear system if the gear tries to shift or move on its own. Continue reading

Keeping Cool With Hydraulic Lifts

We recently moved into a new apartment that has proven to be quite an upgrade from what we were used to. Besides the increased space and cathedral ceilings, not to mention the open floor plan and large kitchen, it also offers a few extra amenities that caught our eye while we were on the first tour of the property. The apartment complex offers an onsite gym, a car wash station, and, my personal favorite, a large swimming pool and hot tub.
