    Synthetic Motor Oil.....

    it takes me a few years to rack up enough miles to warrant a change of synthetic oil. This should not degrade the oil. Didn't someone here state that they use Royal Purple and do not change the oil, just replenish it?

    Camera Recommendations

    My wife likes the pictures that our cell phone takes (Samsung Galaxy S5. I hate using the phone to take pics as we are usually hiking or doing something similar. Can anyoen recommend a camera that is easy to use and takes great pictures. Do not need pro quality.

    Synthetic Motor Oil.....

    How long can the Royal Purple go between oil changes?

    Synthetic Motor Oil.....

    Is this any better than Mobile 1? I checked the royal Purple website and "high mileage" oil helps to keep seals expanded and sealed. Good to know.

    Synthetic Motor Oil.....

    My motorcycle (BMW R1200) is known for taking a very long time for the rings to fully seat. The owners manual states to use dino oil for the first 20,000 then switch to synthetic if you wish. That says a lot about synthetic. I have been using a 7500 mile change schedule and I ignore how long timewise between changes (which is usually a few years). Is that too short of a period, can I go 10K? I just bought a diesel vehicle based on a Mercedes Sprinter chassis and the owners manual states to use Mobile 1 synthetic and 10K intervals.

    Stud Finders - What are you using

    I have an old Zircon stud finder from the 1980's. Still works but not the best tool. I see there are new ones that sense copper pipes and wires. What do you use?

    Stud Finders - What are you using

    How well does it work? I bought three stud finders, one of the large ones with 13 or so LEDS, a smaller one like the above zircon that detects wires, studs, etc. and a magnetic one. Between the three they do very well. I am surprised at how well the magnetic one works. Great for finding drywall screws and removing them so that drywall can be removed in large sheets.

    Help buying new TV, old one died (TV bought!)

    Get a decent smart tv so that you can stream youtube, amazon, netflix, etc. You will quit cable once you start using these services.

    Any TV repair techs here?

    I have a 2.5 year old Samsung UN55-JS8500 and the picture stopped working. I have sound and the back lights work. I got a T Con board from Ebay and when I put it in, the backlights stopped, so maybe it is bad (two bad boards?) The backlights work with the old board, and if I disconnect the output to the LEDs the backlights work with the new board. I also checked the main board output to the T Con board and there are about 20 or so nodes. Only the first cluster of 8 are showing voltages. The rest are at zero with the TV on. Where can I get a service manual or can anyone help me through this? I am assuming that it is either the T Con board or the main board, or both.

    Any TV repair techs here?

    If you look on Youtube, these TV's are very easy to fix if you know what part is bad. There are only 3 or 4 boards and they are inexpensive on ebay. Mine has the classic symptoms of a bad T Con board, but that did not work. But i think that the replacement T Con board is bad. If the LED's are out, that is another matter. And the TV is only a few years old and a higher end model. I really like it, especially the remote, and do no want to replace.

    OT: OBDII Scanner

    I don't have an ABS light on, juts the engine light. When we take a trip, if it does not go off, I will look into this. This does not look too bad: https://www.amazon.com/iCarsoft-Mercedes-Sprinter-Professional-Diagnostic/dp/B015DNAMT2

    OT: OBDII Scanner

    Original topic I need to clear a code on a diesel that was just snogged on a dyno. The computer did not like the rear tires moving while the front remained stationary. Scanners have gotten really cheap. Any recommendations? I'd rather just do it right rather than try to reset with the battery and have it run bad for a while.

    WTB-McIntosh ML 1C speakers

    I went through this years a go with B&W's 800 series, wound up spending gobs of money and finally back to Klipsch with Palladiums. Just keep the Palladiums. If you sell to fund the replacements, you might find yourself looking for a replacement pair at a higher price.

    GREAT K-Horn Project for 1200.00 near Sea World, Ca.

    Just the front of one of them. The sides and the backs look good.

    F'ing mosquitos

    That is weird. Were you in Carson City? I remember taking a turn at Lake Tahoe in the woods and the mosquitoes were so thick it was unbelievable. Not that bad everywhere but in some places just awful. Basically none in Las Vegas. We were in Grants Pass and loved the City, but the mosquitoes made it unbearable for me. Beautiful trail at the park, but could not walk it at dusk, same for the river. Same fro Crater lake. OK at the lake, but the trail had a lot of them. Where in Oregon are you?

    Those ugly Estate Sale Klipschorns ended up on auction

    So he has $600 to $800 too much in to them. Refinishing these is going to be a lot of work. Much better off buying a set for $2500 in good shape than these for $750.

    F'ing mosquitos

    We have no mosquitoes in Las Vegas. I have only encountered them at the lake. You can leave your door open without a screen. I cannot live anywhere where there are mosquitoes. I went to Oregon and loved it but the Mosquitoes were awful. I remember at Crater Lake, we could not stop moving the entire hike and even then they kept on us. We couldn't go to the park or the Rogue River for any length of time either.
