Footballs are oval shaped for a couple of main reasons:

1. So that the ball travels further when thrown and,

2. So that the player can carry and run with the ball comfortably.

How to put the blade into the black and decker 3.4 amp powered handsaw


#1) You have to locate the blade release button on the saw (see your manual). The opposite side of the release button is a screw-like OVAL shaped PIN. To insert the blade, the direction( or position) of this OVAL shaped PIN has to match the OVAL shaped hole in the blade. You could use a screw driver to change the direction/position of this OVAL shaped pin. You have to push down the release button when you use the screw driver to turn.

#2) Hold the blade in Vertical position in your right hand. The "Oval" hole is on top. The teeth is facing your left hand. You will see that the "oval" hole on the top of the blade is a "horizontal" oval.

#3) Hold the saw (handle) in your left hand as if you were going to saw using your left hand.
Now peek through the hole of the saw and find the direction of the OVAL PIN. It has to be a "horizontal" (or lied down) OVAL. If it is not, use the screw driver to adjust it.

#4) Hold the blade using your right hand. Oval hole on top, teeth facing your left hand. Insert
the blade from the bottom of the saw. What you needed to do is to insert the PIN into the hole
of the blade. When you inserted the pin into the hole of the blade, slowly turned the blade upward, the blade will lock by itself.

Does the shape of the poker table important?


Poker tables are usually fairly oval-shaped, with the players sitting around a curve of the table with a dealer facing them in an indented area of the table made specifically for the dealer. In amateur poker, tables are often oval, round or octagonal, using a rotating dealer position. The main idea of the oval shape of the table is to make enough room for every player to put his chips in front on him and have enough room to maintain his each player's privacy of his cards.

I need a glasstop for a oval table about 6 ft X 4 ft. What will be the approximate cost ?


Oval is a pretty hard shape to get, you prob won't be able to go and see any old joe, probably have to go to a proper experinced person or factory. For a 6mm rectangular piece of 6t x 4ft you are looking at $100 - $125 really not sure for oval but guessing it would be considerably more due to its shape.

Which kind of carbiners shoul I use


The best carabiner shape for any kind of static rigging is a symmetric shape - oval is the best. Most carabiners are asymmetric "D" - which is stronger but will cause the line to shift when loaded - the oval shape is better because nothing will shift to one side of the carabiner when loaded. You could use standard aluminum carabiners or even locking ovals (Petzl and Omega make very nice locking ovals), but I would also suggest using steel carabiners - they are cheaper and stronger and since weight isn't an issue they are better.
