    The big difference in the electric terminology and installation regulations and practice in each country!

    I’m from the US and I’m just trying to learn how UK does things and the terminology of what I call something verses what y’all call materials. I read some of this and I mostly don’t know what being said and I’ve been doing this for 32 years

    Rheostats in parallel. Load sharing??

    Hi all. Hyperthetical scenario. Simple loop. 36V supply. 10 amps. So whatever resistor I place in the circuit to produce the 10 amps has to be capable of taking 360W. If I only have access to 200W capacity rheostats can I use two of them in parallell to share the load? Thanks

    Random stuff, just for sharing, thank you!

    To kick this off, I really need to know what this is for...I don't think I need it, it is probably for a non-DeWalt tool... It came sandwiched in the cardboard with a new blade.
