The materials are in fact pretty much the same, but it is the design that is different, you can try having a closer look during your next car tyre fit. As others have explained, airplane tires would not work well on autos and they would be much more expensive than what you can buy now. Auto tires are engineered and constructed very well and the quality has improved dramatically over the years. In the 1970's, top-of-the-line Michelin tires were good for 40,000 miles with a top speed rating of 100mph and they cost about $100 each. Today, the best passenger tires can go 80,000 miles at speeds up to 130mph and they cost about $150 each. Adjusting for inflation, they are cheaper today than 30 years ago, and they are far better tires.

The G3 has an ugly sound. It was ringing much nicer at the beginning of school. We did replace the head to see if that would help but it still has this awful thwunk sound.

It probably has a crack. Do like is done in some aircraft quality control things looking for cracks:
Make a solution, probably blue, with vegitable dye in water... fairly dark saturated solution. Dip the chime in it for a couple minutes and then drain. OFTEN you will see the dyed water draining out of the crack as a steam of blue if it is cracked. Repairing the cracks are iffy at best. You would need to find somebody with a MIG or TIG welder that can weld aluminum. After welding, the metal would have to be filed and dressed down close to the original profile.... Next one would use a tuner to file away slowly the added material to bring it into tune. Depending where the crack is, the welder may have to "vee" out the crack to get a solid fill of the crack.

Tone chime E5 is out of tune and sounds flat. Have replaced the head and this did not solve the problem. What else do I need to do?

"sounds flat" ... What are you comparing this to? Pianos at that range are sharped due to stretch tuning so this would appear flat compared to the piano. Use a Korg or other brand tuner to verify. If it is flat, my educated guess is there is a crack in it. Dip it in a vegetable dye water mixture and usually cracks will show up. This is almost like Magnafluxing they use in the aircraft industry. These are likely made of aluminum and repair if cracked would be hard... one could try to have it welded and then filed down to tune it. I have done this with sleigh bells on a pipe organ, but those were brass.

How can tou take a small bump from a Turntable Record

Place it between two very FLAT things with thin cloth padding and put weight on it for a while, say a week or so. Have it in a warm area during the time.

Two pieeces of glass or flat material like shelving material might work. Use a single layer of cotton on each side of the record to protect the record. You will need a lot of weight... say 20 pounds... stack of books for instance.

MOST DJ lights are not protected to be used outside in weather.

Other considerations are visibility from highways and also aircraft. Certain lights could cause a problem for these two scenarios.

When outside, often the distances are longer and the light drops off as the square of the distance.

Laser types require fog to get the effect and there really isn't a way short of getting the weather to cooperate and give you fog to get those effects.

Between the laws of physics and the construction of lighting intended for interior use, what you are asking for is just not easily obtained.

The inability to control ambient lighting outside is a real problem. Many of the DJ things require a fairly darkened room. The sky glow from a city is enough to kill off the effects.

Found fuse burned-out. Have not replaced fused but does burn-smell can be from the fuse and non others ?

Typically fuses are made from a specific material which will burn in half just above the rated current. The material is enclosed in either a glass tube, ceramic tube or epoxy tube. I have seen many fuses blow and blown and never smelled anything. They are designed to go quickly and not give off anything. More likely you are smelling the burned component. Could be a bad electrolytic capacitor or more likely a bad output transistor. Check all the capacitors (the ones that I am talking about look like little cans) to see if any are bulging or have exploded or have liquid ozing out of them. If nothing is visible I would check to see if any output transistors are shorted with a DMM. It will be one or the other. If you need more specifics on how to do the testing or any questions let me know.


Thank you for using FixYa.

This is known as self-rectification and can occur if the thing is near a strong radio transmitter.

You should check ALL your audio cables have good grounds. A broken shield on a cable can let in the radio signal which if strong enough can rectify (detect) and recover audio from an AM broadcast station. Note that some aircraft radios are also AM, You can also receive SSB type signals, however you will not get intelligible sounds.

I'm installing emg pickups into a guitar but i cannot get the solder to stick to the outside of the potentiometers

Use some fine sandpaper to clean a spot where you want to solder before you do the soldering.
Maybe you will have to use some soldering flux or paste or other like stearine, colophony (rosin) to make the solder stick, but usually if you clean it well with sandpaper and alcohol before soldering, the flux in the soldering wire should make the solder stick well enough, but that varies depending on the material used for the cover of the potentiometer.
