What is the rolling offset using 45 deg bends

The formula for 45 degree bends is offset" x 1.414 equals the travel distance in inches. Example: to calculate the offset of a line 6 1/4", in other words move the line over. Turm 1/4 into decimal form (1 divided by 4=.25). Calculate: (6.25 x 1.414= 8.8375). To convert the decimal form of .8375 to a fraction multiply it by 16 (16/16=1") example: .8375 x 16=13.4 , 13 is the numerator, 16 is the denominator which gives you a fraction of 13/16". That gives you your travel distance center to center of a 6 1/4" offset= 8 13/16" travel distance. For accuracy in your measurement, you must subtract the fitting allowance (how much space the fittings take up in the measurement) from your overall travel distance. It sounds like a lot of steps, but using this formula gives you dead on accuracy in pipe fitting. If you know your travel distance and wish to find the offset, multiply x .707. Hope this helps.

Does not measure distance

Put in new batteries, clean lens, and calibrate. If this does not work, type " Leica Disto A6 Laser Distance Meter user manual " into computer search engine. It will bring up sites for manual.

Calcuation of pitch of the screw and least count?

the pitch of a screw is the distance the thread moves in one complete revolution . OR in the sae measuring system the number of threads (points) in one inch. So if you have a half inch dia bolt and you count the number of threads in one inch along the bolt and you had 20 threads then the pitch would be 20 threads per inch or in metric it is measured as the distance between the points so if the distance between the thread points was 1mm the bolt would be measured as the dia. (say 12 mm) by the distance between the points of 1mm or 12x1.5

The ads for this device state that it uses the Pythagorean theorem to figure the distance of a 3rd side, if you can measure the other 2 sides. I How do I use this feature?

1) There is a big difference between Bosch promo manual and Bosch operation manual:

2) Online promo manual says: Combined Indirect/Pythagoras for measuring total height from a distance

3) Online operation manual shows no instructions for Pythagoras measuring.
And shows no button for displaying E value or height.

4) Operation manual shows:
Length Measurement** and tells you to measure the height while promo says tool will calculate height E
Area Measurement*** shows rectangle only and not triangle
Volume Measurement
Area or Volume
Rounding of Large Calculations
Continuous Measurement (Tracking)

5) I would contact Bosch directly:

6) Until you get satisfaction from Bosch, the Bosch device gives precise menasurements that can be entered into a Pythagorean calculator online, which defeats the purpose of a jobsite tool: But you can access online calculator via cell phone while on jobsite.

What is the float height on 1974 yamaha 175 enduro with needle closed and where do i measure

hi, looking in my manual for that year of bike, there is no mention of the float level, however normaly the float height of a constant depresion carburettor such as this is 27mm, this can be checked by holding the carburetor vertical with the air filter side facing up then slowly invert it until the float is just resting on the needle and not compressing,it.measure the distance between the gasket face of the carburettor and the bottom of the float. the fuel level can also be checked by using a lengthh of clear fuel pipe fitted to the drain at the bottom of the float chamber, undoing the drrain screw with the fuel pipe turned upwards toward the slide the fuel will climb up the pipe and show the present level,

Hello, I want to calibrate a Marksman Distance Measure, but I dont know how I have to. Please, help me. thanks in advance

If you take a tape measure and step from the wall at exactly 10 feet, you will be able to turn the calibration knob to the same exact distance. All other distances from that point on will be precise. Thank you, Dana

Opel astra headlight adjustment

two screws on each headlight control the direction the headlights are aimed. One screw, usually at the top but sometimes below the headlight, adjusts the headlight up and down. The other screw, located to one side, controls the headlight from right to left. Turning the appropriate screw one direction or the other will change the direction the headlight points.
In order to aim your headlights you need to have a flat vertical surface you can aim your headlights at in front of a level surface on which to park the car. If your driveway is level your garage door is the perfect place to aim your headlights.
The tools you will need for this job are simple. Masking tape is used to mark where the headlights are to be aimed and a screwdriver is needed to adjust the headlights. A tape measure will be necessary to measure the distance of the vehicle to the surface you're using to check the aim and to measure the up and down distances from your marks
