i figured i would get a better crowd here than /b/ so anyways.... here it goes, i just got a job machining at this place and i can't read any of the writing on the headstock, its all faded so I'm just guessing for feeds and speeds. it is a Sharpe 1660c engine lathe does anyone have a picture of the faceplates or possibly a diagram so i don't have to figure them all out one?

operating machinery with missing or obscure tags and plates is against the law. call your local OSHA rep and ask them to stop by.

Is there any way to rig a bubble machine to blow weed smoke filled bubbles? I know it would be a huge waste of money, but it would be a pretty awesome thing to do at a party, in a smaller inclosed room.

Would it have enough suction to work the hookah?
Probably burn through a lot of money keeping it running. Is salvia cheaper?

maybey. if it doesn't you could just jury-rig a stronger suction dohickey where the air intake is and then connect the hose to that.

idk why you're talking about salvia, completely different animal than weed. probs wouldn't work in a hookah either

I remember seeing an electric bong down the market. Just surf out with weed and turn it on and it pumps out smoke. I am sure with some searching you can find one and rig it to the back of a kids bubble machine.

if you want to make a "turbo bong" get an electric pump for an air matress, mout massive bowl on instake and suck on the out let, they arent that fun.

the "old school" method was to use a hair dryer.

have to design a steel truss , i get extra points if i use the cremona method, which i was not taught. I could do it using Ritter's section's method however i think a graphical method is more practical. So, if u could please explain it to me, the interentet only provides a description of the method.

I posted this in /tech/ but I don't know if it's more for this board.

I'm doing a two year degree in electronic engineering and I wanted to know how I should be going about this. I'm 18 and doing well in college, but after I get my degree I don't think I'll know how to actually go about getting a job. Do you have any general advice on getting employed? Are there any (not 420chan) forums you could direct me to? And what can I do now to make employers look at me? Thanks.

I have panic attacks around people in small places, because I had a bad life growing up.

It's easy to say that anonymously on the internet to a random stranger I'll never know, but things get difficult when my inability to talk to someone else might cost me a job, which adds to the stress and makes me panic more.

I really need to get a job after college. Which is why I made this thread, haha.

Learn to become a people person. Read self help books (Think Like A Winner and How to make friends and influence people, for starters) in an effort to become more sociable.
Being sociable is what gets you promoted and a job, not just the know how you have.

Should I study aboard?

I got in to study chemical engineering in Helsinki Uni. of Technology. I haven't been able to begin my studies yet due to military service and I'm currently thinking of doing my degree in another country. I have an international background and a ton of friends studying in USA, other Scandinavian countries and Britain.

I'm eligible to get a scholarship that would cover 75% of my tuition fees for both bachelor's and master's degree. I'd also get around 600€ a month of student benefits, would be able to a low interest student loan backed up by the government, and I have a good resume to get some minimum wage job at a store/hotel.

Would doing bachelor's in chemical/biomedical engineering in some country and doing the master's in another be a moronic idea or would it have the potential of being really fucking sweet?

Yes, but don't make the mistake I made and write a thesis at a company where you want to work later. Don't do it at a foreign university. You will get your degree but compared to your student friends back home you will have trouble finding a job because abroad you are disconnected.

This is why big companies have special seminars for expats who want to come back to re-integrate them back into society/company.

That mistake ruined my career. I studied biomedical engineering btw. Fuck that !!! There are only two real engineering disciplines: Electrical and mechanical if you don't want into sale.

Because he's a noob.
What he should have said was all engineering disciplines are reducible to a linear combination of either EE, ME or ChemE. Because that's how it works.

Hey /tesla/

So I'm a Biomedical Engineer, but I don't particularly like the medical aspect of the major (hate it actually). I want to get my PhD in a somewhat unrelated field, something like physics or ECE. Am I foolish for thinking that I can cross over into a good program for graduate school? Grades and research experience won't be a problem.

Also, changing majors really isn't an option since I'm a 22 year old sophomore. I can't wait until I'm 30 to start my life...

What do you think?

My cal1 teacher who was one of the best I've ever had got his bachelors in BME, then got his masters in EE and went to design chips for TI. He became a project manager making ~90k+ at the age of 30, only reason he says he took up teaching was that he wanted to have more off time with his new kids and share knowledge.

U wot m8? A PhD is a 5+ year slog, for bugger-all money, with no certainty of getting a job outside of academia, and no certainty of getting one in academia too. If you want to work in industry, just get an MSc, and get some real world experience.

People do PhD's in barely related fields all the time. It's not a weird thing at all.

Of course, it is HARDER to get into a PhD program outside your major, but it's certainly not impossible.

That said, if you cross over, you may still have to go back to undergrad and do a few extra courses to prepare yourself early. Just go and check out the universities and grad progams your interested in. They should have sections on minimum requirements, recommended preparation, and the course list for their masters and phds.

That totally depends on your ambitions dude, a MsC and BEng aren't going to provide you with the tools that a PhD provides you.

This is especially true for the more theoretical subsets of engineering fields, especially Electrical Engineering.

If you're comfortable with working your average engineer job then go for it, if you want to be the first to discover and solve a particular problem, well then the choice is clear.

As a side note, I plan on going into graduate school in math, not engineering, so take what I say with a grain of salt.

Hey /tesla/,

So for those of you whose schools have summer semesters, holla. What are your schedules like?

I have:
Materials Science
Advanced Manufacturing
Electricity and Electronics
and
Calculus III

Pretty easy seeing as the classes are rather spread out through the week.

So, what about you? Hard semester or easy one?

Haven't registered yet,
but I plan to take:

Eng. physics 2 lecture and lab: Electromagnetism and Waves
and Circuit theory (From RLC circuits to Transistor circuits)
as well as a little side typing class to up my coding game.

It isn't a lot, but it'll be 9 credit hours which is about as much as I'm comfortable taking in a short 10 week period. All the classes will be meeting every day with the exception of perhaps the typing (which is a negligible class). So not hard, but time consuming.
