  1. I've got a 1-6x Vortex StrikeEagle on my Tavor in an ADM mount. I have no issues shooting it close range as long as its on 1x and I keep both eyes open (which I tend to do most of the time). I did have to use a riser to get a more natural sight picture and cheekweld though
  2. I've been using G96 solvent and gun treatment and Slip2000 EWL for awhile and it seems to do a good job with preventing rust. The EWL also seems to staying on slides and rails and not evaporating.
  3. If you guys like hot, then this stuff is awesome. My sister gave me this bottle for Christmas and I’ve been putting it on everything since then. It’s seriously hot, so a little goes a long way. I made chili a few weeks ago and only put a 1/2 tablespoon in and I was sweating like a pig after just a few spoonfuls Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I'm a grown man and I just made an audible "Whoa!!!" when I saw that last picture of the pot. It looks awesome!
  5. I've got a BC Master 1080P facing rearward in my car. I've had it running for about a year and I'm pretty happy with the video quality. The only tweak that I had to do was bump up the exposure a little (+1 if I remember correctly) to handle overcast days. The camera has a 170 degree lens and seems to capture very good daytime images. The nighttime video is about average on roads with street lights (the footage is pretty dark on back roads without lights). The image little washed out at night at stoplights due to the higher exposure but I can still see plate numbers clearly. I have a Magellan MiVue facing fowards and it take very good images. My only complaint about this camera is that you have to use a proprietary viewer to watch footage.
  6. Based on the furnace's performance last night, it seems like the battery swap may have resolved the short cycling problem. The furnace did not seem to be constantly cycling like it was prior to the battery swap, but it still seems like it is cycling more than it should be. I'll have the PSEG tech look at it on Friday to see if he can figure out what's going on but I'm going to stop by Home Depot tonight and grab a new thermostat. The current one is about 10 years old and could probably use replacing
  7. I just pulled the thermostat off the wall and pulled (and replaced) the batteries. It’s been 20 mins since the furnace has cycled, so maybe the thermostat is going bad. The temp in the house is about 2 degrees higher than the current setting, so I guess I have to wait to see what happens when it finally kicks in Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I'm having PSEG come back on Friday to try to figure out why the furnace is now short-cycling. I'm thinking that it may have something to do with the thermostat more than the furnace at this point but I'm guessing it could be some other sensor gone bad
  9. True - I need to call them anyway because I’ve got a new problem that started once the house warmed back up. The heat keeps cycling every few minutes even though the thermostat reading is at the set temperature. This problem didn’t exist before the new blower was put in. I thought that most thermostats have a two degree operating range (+/- 1 degrees of the set temp)? I’m just happy to have the back but I’m wondering if I’ve now set off a cascade of other issues Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. The issue was that the bracket for the replacement motor didn’t line up properly so they had to drill some holes in the housing to get the motor in Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. The heat is back on (which is a nice thing since the thermostat was reaching 65 degrees). In the end, the tech put a new blower motor in and everything seems fine. There was a little hiccup when the first replacement motor self destructed when he flipped the switch (blower kicked in and my circuit breaker tripped immediately). It looks like that motor was a factory dud. He found another tech in my neighborhood that had a spare motor that was not an exact fit for the blower housing on my unit but they got it in there. All in all I'm very happy with the service despite the long wait for someone to show (which is understandable in this weather). The tech was very friendly and seemed very knowledgable.
  12. I’m relatively mechanically inclined but I figured that I’ve got the service contract, so why not use it. PSEG just got here. The tech just dropped the blower motor out of the furnace and dragged it out to his truck to take a look at it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. So, I just decided to turn the heat back to "on" and the furnace actually came on for a few minutes but it's acting a bit strange... The thermostat read 68 degrees, so I push the setting up to 70 The furnace kicked on, the burners ignited, and then the blower motor kicked on The blower ran for about 2 mins without squealing but started doing so after about 1.5 minutes At about 2 mins, the blower the blower stopped but the temp was still at 68 After about 30 seconds, the blower kicked in for about 10 seconds and stopped The furnace and blower just kicked in again and have been running for about another minute or so and it's starting to squeal louder I just turned it off and now i still hear buzzing coming from the blower I've got the worry-free contract on the heater, so they will make the service call. they were supposed to be here between 12-4pm but I got a call about 2 hours ago saying that the techs were running behind but would be coming out today because I have no heat
  14. Excellent question. I’m not actually sure but I’m going to ask Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Yeah - that's what I'm thinking. I think that they spread the payment out over X number of months.
