A dry suit is loose fitting apart from a sealed neck, wrists and ankles to stop the water getting in. Dry suits do not provide insulation and the clothes worn under the dry suit keep the people warm they are used more for deep sea diving. Wet suits no not keep a person dry but they are insulated to keep the person warm during water sports or scuba diving.

I have an acrylic blanket that feels different when wet, sort of tight. But when it dries out, it is soft and sort of spongy like before. Hopefully this will be the case for your sweater.

What should I wear under my dry suit?


Dry suits are not meant to keep a diver warm; they are designed to keep the clothing from getting wet. It may be even possible that a diver may get wet from perspiration or a leak in the suit. The types of materials to wear under the dry suit include pile fleece, polypropylene or wool as these types of materials will keep you insulated even when wet - avoid wearing cotton.

Older model shop.vac parts/owners manuel


Hi, I know on my Craftsman shop vac 2 different sizes of vacs that I use, I try and stick to the craftsman filters, but you can use other brands if they are not available or you want to save some ( $ ) ? As far as a manual for this vac, more then likely you will have to go to the maker and distributor as Sears, O.C.Hardware also sell there products. You may have to go with a manual that is the same peak H.P.and gallons that covers all different makes and models. Filter wise, make sure you have the right ones on or off when using the wet or dry pick-up settings.
Sincerely,

How does may tag intelli dry work? what is the difference between less and more heat setting


there is a sensor inside the door to the right it actually "feels" the dampness of the clothes across the two strips on the sensor, if you close a wet washcloth in the door so that it hits the sensor you will see that it will show as wet and it will run longer.
if nothing in the load hits the sensor the sensor will call it dry and the load will finish, larger loads work better with sensor dry small loads not so much. if there is alot of trouble try using the timed dry cycle.

Scuba suit need?


"Wet suits and dry suits are very important when it comes to scuba diving. Your normal body temperature hovers around 98.6F (37C). If you are scuba diving in water that is cooler than your body temperature your temperature will drop. In all water, even the warmest, tropical waters, you will need thermal protection, like a wet suit, dry suit or dive skin, to keep warm and to keep safe while scuba diving. The cold affects our ability to think and our physical response time slows, which can lead to an accident. Warm tropical water will begin to feel cold after prolonged scuba diving, so it is always a good idea to wear light insulation at a minimum. When choosing thermal protection, like a wet suit or dry suit, you need to consider the following factors: Water temperature Your activity level during a dive Your body size You should always wear more insulation in colder water and lighter insulation in warmer water. Your level of activity can be a good indicator of how much insulation you should wear during a scuba dive. The more active you are during a dive the more heat your body generates and the warmer you remain throughout your dive. Larger scuba divers may need less insulation than smaller scuba divers and small, muscular scuba divers may need less insulation than larger scuba divers. It is important for you to try different amounts of insulation in differing water temperatures to determine what you need. Some scuba divers need more insulation than others, regardless of activity or size. Some scuba divers can dive in tropical water wearing only a lycra body suit, commonly known as a dive skin, while others need a 2mm wet suit. Some scuba divers can dive in cold water wearing only a 6mm wet suit, while others need the protection of a dry suit. If you are scuba diving in water below 55F (12.7C), a dry suit is the warmest type of thermal insulation available. Dive skins, wet suits and dry suits also protect your skin from cuts, scrapes, abrasions and stings which can occur while you are scuba diving. A simple brush against specific forms of coral and fish can cause painful irritations and burns on bare skin, but may not be noticeable or even occur, if your skin is protected."

Bread hook use


Use it to the side. This will pull the dry ingredients off the bowl. If the dough is coming out lumpy, make sure you follow the recipe exactly. Putting dry into wet will give different results than putting wet into dry. If this doesn't end the lumps, try a different type of flour.
