Nesco (1508) 14" Truck Tire Inflator with Dial Gauge

5.0 out of 5 stars great inflator with gauge that locks on and inflates by squeezing the trigger., October 31, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great gauge for dual tired vehicles. Quick and easy inflation.

The threads are slightly bigger than the threads on a stem, which allows you to push the inflator on the stem, angle it slightly and have it temporarily lock in place while you inflate. Straighten it out and the threads unlock and it easily pulls off. This is a million times better than the clip-on inflators, which have always been slow and leaky to me.

For dual-tired vehicles you push onto the stem for the inner tire (stem faces outwards), or pull back into the stem for on the outer tire (stem faces inwards).

It was a little confusing at first because the inflator doesn't release air inside until you're locked onto the stem and squeeze the handle to inflate. But then you realize there are two air outlets, so it makes sense.

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing, usable zoom., October 31, 2014
Amazing zoom. Planes, birds, anything at a distance you can't see with your eye, this camera can see.
The image stabilizer makes all the difference.

Actually, it can see stuff SO far away you have to get good at zooming out, finding the object and zooming in while keeping it centered.

With optical zoom, the moon will fill a good portion of the frame. You can clearly see the shadows of the craters at the edge of the moon.

You can track planes that are a speck in the sky and take reasonable photos of them.

I'm going to have to learn some of the ins and outs of this camera better. I did disable digital zoom in settings. I'm going to have to learn the automated way of zooming in and out when locating an object to shoot. I also understand there are ways to do manual focusing, which might help to prevent delays and hunting as objects move in and out of the frame.

5.0 out of 5 stars just get one, it's wonderful., October 31, 2014
EDIT: 5 stars most definitely.

My one tip - calibrate the gyro. Don't bother trimming.

I assume you start in beginner mode (press left controller until 1 beep)

- put it on level ground
- switch to advanced mode (press IN on the left controller twice until you get 3 beeps)
- move left stick to lower left and hold
- move right stick to upper left and hold
- it will flash when the calibration is complete after a few seconds
- switch back to mode 1 (press IN on the left controller once to get back to 1 beep)

It flies MUCH better after calibrating.

Also - Flipping is a blast.
- Press IN on the right controller stick until you get a beep
- The next left or right movement on the right stick will flip the quad
I think it does forward flips too.

---- original review

Fun little quadcopter.

You charge the copter with USB, the controller has 2 x aaa batteries. The controls are reasonable and responsive.

I wish it was a bit more stable, but it's way better than "regular" copters. I may try calibrating the accelerometer, there are instructions to do it.

Very tiny, relatively quiet, and a blast to play with.

5.0 out of 5 stars nice shampoo, nice smell, hard to squeeze the bottle, September 16, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I like this shampoo. Just a little goes a long way. It has a very pleasing smell.

one minor thing: it's really hard to squeeze the bottle to get the shampoo to come out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful clever device, July 11, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
What a clever device! If you remove the shipping labels before recycling the boxes this is a great time and fingernail saver.

The sharp(!) spatula thing slides under even the most stuck on shipping label and help pulls it off.

My complete time-saving setup includes:

A Westcott 8" Letter Opener with Serrated Blade (29380)
A zibra open-it package opener

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for raspberry pi, July 11, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great for raspberry pi. My setup would power this entirely from the pi. (I think I have a 1.5 or 2 amp usb power adapter)

The important point - it is a digital speaker system. Not only is there only one cable for power and signal, you don't get an annoying hiss when the speaker is inactive. All the other USB-powered speakers seem to have two cables - a USB cable for power only, and a separate 3.5mm jack for analog audio.

You will have to tweak your confit file a little to make this the default output device on raspbian, google "Using a USB Audio Device With a Raspberry Pi" for the recipe.

One fun thing to do - make your pi talk:
apt-get install espeak
espeak "hello there"

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for Raspberry Pi, July 11, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Works perfectly with my raspberry pi, providing BOTH power to the pi and several expansion ports.

Hook up a short flexible USB to micro-USB cable to power the Pi, and use the included USB to mini-usb cable as the link to the hub. You then have 6 powered ports on the hub available,

This is also on the verified hardware list.

Clever design. I use it all the time to walk the cable n and off the reel. Put one hand in the center, and the other hand turns the knob and the cable is coiled as fast as you can walk without even getting your hands dirty.
