    If I underastand you question correctly you want to know how to use you instrument to determan the depth of a hole,correct? Level instrument. place a stick into the ground just past the hole you wish to make or measure. Have someone else mark the spot that the instrument indicates. Measure with a tape down for there. or put two story sticks with a string on the mark between them if wish to measure closer to the bottom center.

First level it up in all directions then take a shot of your tape measure or marker stick at the predetermined point, write this measurement down, then take a shot of your tapemeasure reaching down in the excavation and then subtract the predetermined measurment from the excavation measurment and this will tell you how much deeper your are than your predetermined mark.

How many cubic feet is the 106.5942801 model?


1 Open the refrigerator door. Measure the depth of the refrigerator
from the front edge of the refrigerator opening to the back wall. Make sure that you measure in feet and not in inches. Note the depth measurement on a piece of paper.
2 Measure the height and the width of your refrigerator's opening. Note the two additional measurements on your paper. Multiply the depth, height and width measurements to obtain the refrigerator's cubic foot measurement.
3 Take the same measurements from the interior of the freezer. Multiply those measurements together to get the cubic foot size of your freezer.
4 Add the cubic foot measurement of the refrigerator interior to the cubic foot measurement of the freezer interior. This gives you the total cubic foot measurement for the refrigerator.

Is width measured horizontally and depth/length measured vertically?


Width is measured across the front or back horizontally. Depth is the measurement taken from front to back, not the height which would be a vertical measurement.

My pool is 16feet wide by 32 long 10 feet deep what is the square footage


What you looking to know?

Square feet suggests a flat area, like the floor plan of the pool, which would be 16 x 32 = 512 square feet. Like you'd measure walls for tiles or paper etc.

As you've given 3 dimensions, sounds like your after the cubic capacity/volume of the pool, in which case your looking at cubic feet (same as flat area above, but with the added depth to go from flat 2d, to 3d (2 vs 3 dimensions)), which would be 16 x 32 x 10 = 5,120 cubic feet.

What is the max plunge depth of a park side combination cutter


what model and year? and what is preventing you from measuring it?

switch off the machine and better still unplug it as well from power (positive insulation)

retract the bit till is flash with with the table slide or below, crank it till it is flush with surface. that is your zero point, crank it now till installed cutting blade is fully extended, measure exposed bit - that is your maximum cutting (effective) depth, never, ever use your cutter on maximum depth on single go, you will burn the blade, most probably destroy the piece and lucky if not burn the motor...

if your exposed blade high is greater than 25mm (1") on single or two blades cut in two or better three stages, if you have three or four blades and machine will support that power, you cut that then in single bit

do not overheat bits, it is better to plunge slowly and retract to allow waste removal than in single go destroy bit and material...

if this help - do not forget to vote...

My pool is 15' X 30 '. Deepest part of pool is 6' in the center. One end of the pool is 3' deep the other end is 4'. What are the gallons required to fill the pool?


not possible to calculate with the information provided. here is a basic formula to get you close.
length x width x average depth x height in feet x 7.5 gallons / cubic ft

Water capacity kawe860w


I don't have the number for you, but I can offer a method for measuring it. First, the next time you do laundry, set the water level switch to where you will use it for the dyeing task. With the lid open, but with no clothes inside, turn on the washing machine. Observe and note the level of the water when the machine stops filling. Measure the depth of the water. Add clothes and detergent and wash in the usual manner - you don't need to waste that water.

Next, pour four gallon jugs of water into a clean five-gallon pail, and mark the level in the pail (four gallons in the pail is much easier to handle than a brim-full five gallons). Pour that into the machine, and measure the depth. Put in another four gallons of water, and measure the depth again. If the bottom part of the agitator is covered by the first four gallons, you can can calculate from the increase in depth made by the second four gallons how many more gallons you need to get to the fill depth. (The bottom of the agitator takes up more volume per inch of depth than the center and top,) If the bottom of the agitator is not covered by the first four gallons, but is covered by the second four, then add a third four-gallon pour and measure the depth once more.

Here is an example measurement: water depth on chosen load size setting: 16 inches.

Depth on first four gallons: 2 1/2 inches (some of the water is under the bottom of the inner tub). The agitator bottom taper is almost covered, but not quite.

Depth on second four gallons: 7 inches. The water level is above the bottom section of the agitator, so from this point the water depth will increase by the same amount per gallon added.

Depth on the third four gallons: 11 inches. We can now see that from this point, adding four gallons makes the water level go up four inches, so to reach the 16 inch mark,we need five more gallons. The total will be 4+4+4+5 = 17 gallons.

For what it's worth, there's about 7.48 gallons per cubic foot. If your machine's outer tub holds an additional cubic foot of water, my example numbers may be roughly what you will get.

What size is my Kenmore 106.56699501 refrigerator


I chatted with someone at Sears. They told me it is approx. 22 cu ft.

Alternatively, you could measure.

The first step is to open the refrigerator door. Measure the depth of the refrigerator from the front edge of the refrigerator opening to the back wall. Make sure that you measure in feet and not in inches. Note the depth measurement on a piece of paper.

Then, measure the height and the width of your refrigerator's opening. Note the two additional measurements on your paper. Multiply the depth, height and width measurements to obtain the refrigerator's cubic foot measurement.

Take the same measurements from the interior of the freezer. Multiply those measurements together to get the cubic foot size of your freezer.

Add the cubic foot measurement of the refrigerator interior to the cubic foot measurement of the freezer interior. This gives you the total cubic foot measurement for the refrigerator.

I am unable to raise or lower the cutting surface of my DW734 thickness planer. The turn handle is very hard to turn. Is there some kind of a locking mechanism ? If I had a manual I might be able to figure...


Follow this link: http://servicenet.dewalt.com/Products/Detail?productNumber=DW734

This will allow you to download the manual and exploded art for base, cutterhead and motor. You may also want to check the position of the turret stop. First of all, make sure the cutterhead lockdown lever is disengaged. Here is from the manual:

Your planer is equipped with a turret stop (M), shown in

Figure 11, for repetitive planing of pre-set depths. Stops are

set at 0", 1/4", 1/2" and 3/4". Use the 0" setting when planing

between 1/8" and 1/4".

TO SET A PLANING DEPTH

1. Be sure the carriage is set above 1-1/4" before trying to

set the turret stop.

2. Turn the turret stop until the desired measurement

shows (Fig. 11).

3. Unlock the head lock lever (Fig. 8). Turn the depth

adjustment crank, lowering the carriage by the desired

increments, until it contacts the turret stop.

NOTE: DO NOT USE FORCE TO CRANK THE CARRIAGE

BELOW THE LEVEL THAT THE TURRET STOP INDICATES.

PERMANENT DAMAGE TO THE HEIGHT

ADJUSTMENT SYSTEM ON YOUR PLANER WILL

RESULT.

NOTE: The 3/4" turret stop can be adjusted for other planing

thicknesses. Adjusting the 3/4" turret stop does not affect the

other turret stop settings.

TO ADJUST THE 3/4" STOP FOR OTHER

THICKNESSES

1. Unlock the head lock lever (Fig. 8) and turn the adjustment

handle counterclockwise to raise the cutter head.

2. From the back of the tool, locate the turret adjustment

bolt (N) shown in Figure 11. This bolt is set for a 3/4"

depth of cut at the factory. Use the crescent wrench provided

to loosen the jam nut. Adjust the bolt up or down to
reach the desired planing depth.

3. Turn the depth adjustment crank, lowering the carriage by
the desired increments, until it contacts the turret stop.

Hope this helps.
