The importance of using the right tool for the job

When it comes to engineering it is absolutely essential that the right tools are available so that the job can be done properly. Engines are incredibly complex, and if the proper tools are not used then it can become very difficult to complete the job, however more importantly it means that irreversible damage could be done to the engine which would not be a good situation. A good engineer will always have all of the tools readily available so that they can work quickly, efficiently and also safely.

Right-tool-for-the-job

 One example of the importance of having the right tool is for the removal of bearings from an engine, as you will find pressure-set bearings in certain engines which sit very tightly and are hugely important in keeping the engine working properly. As they sit so tight in the engine, it means that a specialist tool needs to be used to extract them, and any other attempts could be futile but more importantly do serious damage to the engine. This is why bearing pullers are such an important tool for engineering, and there are a wide range of these pullers which can be used to get the job done. It is important that you research what bearing puller can be used on the engine or machine you are working on however, as not all pullers can be used on all engines (this information can usually be found in the repair manual).

Car Buying Tips

Car Recommendations Based on Fact

As soon as you mention to somebody you are purchasing a new car you will get more unsolicited advice on what make and model and from where than you ever wanted. The internet will give you hundreds of blogs with reviews, and car expert best pick lists. Consumer Reports and car buying sites will give you loads of data based on industry reports and track records. The plain truth is you will have far more information thrown at you than what you can possibly use and then it is left to you to decide which to believe and trust.

Car-Recommendations

The first step in the process of choosing which vehicle is deciding what is important to you. Hundreds of comparisons on fuel economy do not matter a lot if the car is for occasional use and a 2 mile commute to work. While better fuel economy is good, it has nowhere near the value to somebody driving 4000 miles a year as it does to somebody driving 20,000 miles per year. Why bother stating the obvious? Because all of the official review sites take weight things according to what their expert panel told them was most important. What is most important to their expert panel may have little bearing on your needs. This means their “Top 10” list may not be in your top 25 when assessed by your priorities.

Driving Aids for the Disabled

Physically disabled people – whether those who were born disabled or those who suffered an injury or accident later in life – can find themselves greatly restricted when it comes to travelling from place to place. Simple tasks most people take for granted – like boarding a bus or taxi, or driving a car – can be an arduous activity that sadly can leave many disabled people stranded, unable to travel as freely as their able-bodied peers. Yet there are an increasing number of ways and means that help disabled people travel freely and easily, whether by public transport or private vehicle.

Driving-Aids-for-the-Disabled

The Equality Act 2010, passed by the UK government, ensures that transport must be accessible to all users regardless of physical disability. This was an important step in making sure that disabled people in the UK had open and fair access to all kinds of vehicles, including buses, coaches, trains and taxis. In fact, almost all buses brought into service after the year 2000 have been required by law to incorporate numerous features designed for aiding disabled passengers, including handrails, priority seating, low floor entry doors and space for wheelchairs.
