My lowrance elite 4 HDI goes black when i get on plane so my backtrack feature doesnt work


The speed of your boats travel only directly affects your sonars ability to read the water depth.
your backtrack feature is GPS based. These is not affected by your boat being on plane.

Your screen being black sounds like your sonar is losing bottom contact due to air bubbles passing under the transducer. This is a common occurrence with most boats.

Add some details regarding what your seeing and we can help you get a better handle on your difficulty.

Tip

Controlling Depth of Field


A photographed object will only appear sharp in an area a specific distance from the camera. The human eye and brain still accept some areas of the image as acceptably sharp if they lie near the plane of focus and already show a small degree of blur. This zone, which is still in acceptably sharp focus, is called depth of field.

You'd typically want a wide depth of field when shooting landscapes, so as to have everything from the flower in the foreground to the mountains on the horizon in focus. You'd typically want a narrow depth of field for such subjects as portraits and flowers, blurring the background to avoid distractions.

How large this depth of field is depends on the distance to the subject, the aperture, and the focal length of the lens. Whether you're shooting film or digital makes no difference.

If the plane of focus lies further away from the camera, the depth of field is wider than if the camera focuses on an object close by.

Small apertures (large f/numbers) result in a wider depth of field.

Short focal length lenses (wide angle) have a wider depth of field than long focal length lenses (telephoto).

The depth of field is determined by the actual focal length of the lens, not the "35-mm equivalent" often used in the camera specifications. Because most compact cameras have sensors much smaller than SLRs, they have much shorter lenses, giving wider depth of field. This is great for landscapes, not so great for portraits.

To get a narrow depth of field, set the aperture as large as you can (smaller f/numbers), move in close to the subject, and zoom in. If your camera doesn't give you direct control over the aperture, try using the Portrait mode. And yes, the last two items above, moving in close and zooming in, are in opposition, You'll have to decide on the best balance for your picture.

To get a wide depth of field, set the aperture as small as you can (larger f/numbers), move away from the subject, and zoom out. If your camera doesn't give you direct control over the aperture, try using the Landscape mode.

Before going on vacation or shooting your child's wedding, experiment with these factors. Shoot things in your backyard or at a park, trying for both narrow and deep depth of field, then look at the pictures on your computer.

What is causing the depth to keep blinking when my boat is on plane.sometimes the screen just shows a horizontal line where the depth should read. garmin541s brand new


First, make sure that the connection is good, clean, and tight on both ends of your transducer. Sometimes turbulance or temperature stratifications in the subsurface water will cause this. Also, check the specifications of your transducer. Some do not perform well while moving at high speed. One test, when on plane, when the problem occurs, slow the boat and see what happens to the readout. Repeat this several times. This should help narrow down what is causing the problem.

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.

My depth finder loses its depth reading at about


You need to set the transducer lower. When at speed, the hull of the ship raises up out of the water and hence your transducer is probably not deep enough at these times to give a proper reading.

Adjustment of sharpened cutter of porter cable 653 versa plane


There are two adjustments. First find the screw on the right side that allows loosening of rear baseplate. Once loose, another screw jacks the base up or down. They are both hex heads on mine.

Turn jack screw until a straight edge along the base just clears the cutter. Spin the cutter once to make sure both edges are the same depth and that both clear the straight edge.

For the front shoe, turn adjustment handle to zero. Remove the adjustment handle from the front shoe and find two vertical slots at the front. Two screws (hex heads) allow loosening of shoe. Once loose, the shoe can be adjusted by sliding up or down. With a straight edge held along the rear base and touching the front base, align the front shoe so straight edge barely clears blade and tighten screws. The front and back base should line up. Replace adjustment lever and recheck zero cut clearance as well as maximum depth. Readjust as necessary. If zero clearance is not an issue, the bases can be set to allow deeper cuts than factory specified. It's a powerful planer so if you're cutting softer woods, a deeper cut might be desired.

Problem with navman 4150 fish finder


I installed my Navman 4150 depth finder along with the Navman GPS unit when I purchased my Bayliner Trophy 20Ft. Offshore model. Everything was ok for one year and it has been downhill since then. Losing signal, unbelievable high depth ranges, blank periods, etc.. I now can't even get a reading tieded up at the dock. I am now giving up and shoping for a quality unit.. Cape Disappointment.........

Group Picture out of focus


For group photo happiness:

* Use the widest angle available on your zoom lens for group shots. Longer focal lengths make the depth-of-field problem worse. Step closer to the group to fill the frame.

* Use a moderate aperture, somewhere between f/5.6 and f/11. f-stops beyond f/11 can make more things appear to have the same amount of focus, but actual resolution drops due to diffraction.

* Arrange the group so that all the faces are at or near the same plane, and your camera is perpendicular to that plane. So, if P is a person, C is your camera, and - is just space,

Planes Comparison


If you have a stack of hand planers and you do a lot of woodworking, you might want to buy a power planer. Power planer have a number of qualities that should convince you to keep the old hand planers but add that power to the group. Choose a power planer when you have a lot of planing to do. One thing about a power planer is that it is much faster compared to the hand planer. Use a power planer when you need to make rabbets or even scrolling. The power planer can do both of these jobs. There is a great deal of versatility about a power planer. Keep the cut smooth with a power planer. Frequently a hand planer needs to be lifted and started again. This leaves gouges and groves. A power planer has a continuous blade that leaves a smoother cut. Get more precision. The continuous motion of the hand held power planer and set depth cuts the specific amount that you want. Plane larger areas. You can plane doors quickly and easily with a few strokes of the power planer. Straighten a board easier with a power planer. You also can create chamfered surfaces with the power planer.

No depth reading while on plane.


Depending on your transducer type, you may have a liquid filled type that simply needs refilling. If this is the case check for leaks and get it redone. If not it could be transducer placement or cavitation under the hull.
