Precision SL8: A Revolution in the Billiards Industry

If you’re in the market of buying a pool table, you’ll no doubt quickly come to the conclusion that you have two main options. You can invest in a slate pool table for a “proper” pool playing experience that’s built to last, or a wooden surfaced pool table that is considerably cheaper. They both have their advantages and their relative disadvantages: slate is water and warp resistant and offers a particular sound and feel, yet it’s extremely heavy and quite expensive. Wood, on the other hand (most often MDF or plywood) is much lighter in weight, less expensive, but is notorious for warping.

So what if there was another option, something that offered the best of both worlds? Well, that’s exactly what Precision SL8 is. This new base is a manufactured material designed for pool table beds that’s essentially a “middle-ground” between slate and wood. It’s constructed to produce the advantages of both slate and wood whilst losing the disadvantages. And the end result achieves exactly that.

First off, Precision SL8 has a hard, dense feel and sound to it, similar to that of slate, offering a noticeable difference over wood. The ball rolls well and sounds much more like it should i.e. like when on a slate table. It’s also more resistant to water like slate and thus much more warp resistant. That’s arguably the biggest downside to wood surfaced pool tables – their tendency to warp – so it’s a nice attribute for Precision SL8 to have.

As for qualities similar to that of wood, Precision SL8 is relatively lightweight. This means it can be installed as one seamless panel and can be installed yourself with the help of a friend or two. Traditional slate on the other hand will usually come in three separate panels and will require professional installation, or at least a few strong mates! Much like wood, Precision SL8 is also much more affordable. It’s priced mid-way between your average slate table and your average wood surfaced pool table, understandably reflecting its attributes.

Overall, while a slate table will always offer the best level of play quality if you have the budget, Precision SL8 is the next best thing and is arguably the better option for a lot of people wanting a pool table in their own home. It literally does offer the best of both worlds while eliminating the disadvantages, so makes for a great compromise!

The Healthy Diet Plan That Works

Understanding Down Comforter Construction

Down comforters are constructed by sewing down and feathers between a top and bottom cover, usually made of cotton. Silk or polyester covers are also used, though less frequently. Down comforters were originally called duvets, a French word meaning a simple open fabric bag, filled with feathers and down. Today a top and bottom cover, stitched (quilted) together, keeps the down evenly spread out in small compartments referred to as baffles or boxes.

There are two main types of down comforter constructions: baffle box and box stitch (also called sewn through). A baffle box comforter has thin strips of material sewn between the top and bottom cover in a checkered pattern. The baffles are usually between 6″ and 15″ in size with an equal amount of down in each. A box stitch comforter is also sewn in a checkered pattern; but rather than using small strips of material to separate the top and bottom cover, the top and bottom cover are sewn together forming boxes. Boxes serve the same purpose as baffles: they keep the down evenly spread out across the entire comforter.

Which is better, baffle box or box stitch construction? Box stitch is more common and more expensive to create, so there is a common misunderstanding that baffle box is the better construction. Also, many retailers make inaccurate claims about their products that add to the confusion most customers have when tying to decide on a down comforter. The truth is that both types of construction serve a purpose and both are the best choice for certain kinds of comforters.

Myth: Only baffle box construction “locks” down in place.

Truth: Both baffle box and box stitch construction secure down in separate compartments that keeps the down evenly distributed across the entire area of the comforter.

Myth: Box stitch construction allows cold to come through at the points where the top and bottom covers are sewn together, causing “cold spots.”

Truth: This would be true if the comforter was held stretched out across the top of your bed, but it isn’t. In practice, the boxes push together and conform to the shape of your body, providing the same amount of down insulation as a baffle box construction.

Myth: Baffle box construction gives a comforter a fuller look than box stitch construction.

Truth: Baffle box construction actually does the opposite; it makes the top of the comforter look flatter. A box stitch comforter gives a more sculpted and puffy look because each square is pulled together at its edges.

Box stitch is generally the best choice for lighter weight comforters used in the warmer climates and seasons. But box stitch is also best for heavier comforters (using more filling) when you want a sculpted or puffy look. Baffle box is usually the best choice for heavier comforters used in colder climates and seasons. Baffles allow the down to expand fully in heavier comforters, maximizing the insulation value of the comforter.

If you are looking to purchase a new down comforter and wondering which type of construction you should get, first remember that both are excellent and serve the primary function of keeping the down from shifting or bunching up in the corners. Box stitch is probably the better choice for comforters below 30 – 40 ounces of down fill (depending on dimensions), and baffle box is most likely the smart choice for heavier and warmer down comforters above 30 – 40 ounces. The main exception is if you are really looking for a sculpted or puffy look, and your main concern is the look of the comforter. Then get a box stitch comforter with over 40 ounces of fill.

What You Need to Know About Stair Handrails

Here are the basics of what you need to know about stair handrails before trying this DIY project. Building your own wooden stair handrails can be a challenging and rewarding process. Before you try to tackle this project, it is important that you understand stair handrail terminology.

Main Parts

The rails are the horizontal pieces into which the balusters fit. The top rail is the handrail, and the bottom rail is the shoe rail. Each rail is plowed out along its length, leaving a space in which to fit the balusters.

The balusters (or spindles) are the vertical pieces that fit into the hand and shoe rails. They come in two sizes: 1 1/4 inch and 1 3/4 inch, and two styles: square or turned. Turned rails have been spun on a lathe to create different designs, however, their tops and bottoms are kept square so they fit into the plowed out areas of the rails.

Fillets are strips of wood, which fill in the plowed areas of the rails, holding the balusters snugly in place, keeping them even spaced, and giving a finished look to the rail. They are a convenient option to drilling holes for the balusters, and come in a variety of profiles.

Newel Posts

Newel posts come in a large variety of shapes and sizes, and you should select your new posts with location in mind. They can be square or turned, plain or fancy, and come in many different styles. One example of a newel post would be a square post with an acorn top. Some styles of newel posts require some extra mounting plates for proper installation.

Other Parts

There are other parts that may be necessary, depending on the style of handrail that you decide to install.

Rosettes are optional wooden pieces that fit between the handrail and the wall. They add a decorative touch, or you can omit them for a clean and simple look.

Cap boards cover the knee wall that the railing may be built on.

Bull nose is an optional covering for either a floor edge or a stair edge where the railing overlooks a landing or a room.


It is important that when you select and order parts to build your handrail, you choose parts that work and fit together, and that the top and bottom rail match. Once you have decided which size of baluster to use, you must consistently choose that size for the balusters, the plowed out area in the rails, and the fillets, or they will not fit together.


OSHA has set height requirements for the safe construction of handrails, and it is important to meet these requirements when working on your project.

Building your own wooden stair handrail is a basic, satisfying project that can be modified in many different ways to fit your style and budget.

Airbag Safety

In order to protect drivers and passengers, automotive manufacturers began experimenting with the idea of ​​creating a "cushion" in the event of an accident. In 1967, Dr. David S. Breed invented the ball-in tube inertial sensor for crash detection. Breed marketed the item to Chrysler and, over the years, it has become the modern day airbag. The National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimate that airbags have preceded 25,782 deaths over the past 11 years.

Frontal Airbags

Front airbags are typically kept in an automobile's steering wheel. In the event of collision, they should deploy immediately and then quickly deflate. The purpose of frontal airbags is to reduce the force of impact a driver comes into contact with the interior of their car. Without airbags, drivers would be forced to collide with the hard steering wheel, frequently causing broken ribs, head trauma, or death. Frontal airbags are not intended to provide protection in the event of a rollover or side collision.

Three generations of airbags exist. The safest was released in 2003 and became standardized in 2007. Older vehicles likely contain out-of-date technology; however, if you take your vehicle to its manufacturer, they can update your system.

Side-Impact Airbags

Side impact airbags are intended to provide protection for drivers 'and passengers' head and chest in the event of a side-impact collision. There are three types of side-impact air bags: torso, head, and head / torso combination. While they are not required for new vehicles, they are a popular safety feature.


While airbags are designed to protect passengers and increase automotive safety, defective airbags can cause serious injury. If an airbag fails to deploy in the event of an accident, occupants may incur injuries from impacting hard surfaces in the interior of their car. Additionally, if an airbag deploys randomly and unprovoked, drivers may sustain injuries to their face and torso due to the high pressure of deployment. In order to minimize your risks of injury from airbags:

• Always wear your seatbelt, as airbags are not an adequate replacement

• Always seat children under 12 years of age in the back of a vehicle

• Leave at least 10 inches of room between the air bag cover (typically steering wheel) and your chest

While these steps will help minimize your risk of injury, there is no guarantee.


If you have been the victim of a defective airbag, your vehicle's manufacturer may be liable for any damages you incurred.

Building Maintenance at Height – Applications of Rope Access Techniques

A common use of rope access techniques is for building maintenance tasks at height. Usually by rigging from the roof and abseiling down the side of the building facade, rope access technicians can safely and easily access areas that would otherwise be inaccessible for normal building maintenance. The usual method of access to the roof for rope access technicians is via a roof hatch or from a top floor balcony or similar. Suitable rigging points on roofs are usually fairly easy to come by, from large chimney stacks to secure balcony railings, just about anything that is solid and secure enough that can be used as a rigging point for a rope access technician to rig his dual lines from ( two lines are always used, a working line and a safety backup line to ensure that the rope access technician is always working safely).

There are numerous building maintenance tasks at height that can be towed off roads by rope access technicians, and it can often be a quicker, easier and cheaper option using industrial rope access for these tasks compared to using traditional height access methods such as scaffolding and cherry pickers. Scaffolding can often be expensive to implement, time consuming to erect and dismantle and disruptive to pedestrian and traffic flow, while cherry pickers often require road closure permission, and are in fact still limited in their ability to provide access difficult or restricted space areas. Using rope access as the access method bypasses these issues, and a rope access team can typically get in fast and perform their maintenance maintenance tasks with the least disruption possible. The usual tasks for building maintenance that rope access is considered suitable for range from gutter cleaning, gutter maintenance and gutter repair, down pipe unblocking and repair, roofing work such as felting, flashing and other rooftop work and maintenance, façade and facia maintenance and repair such as stone work, pointing, stone cleaning, external vegetation removal which is more often than not caused by leaking gutters either from a blockage at the top or by damaged joints in the down pipe, cladding, glazing solutions such as glazing replacement at height , high level electrics and wiring, painting and cleaning in difficult access areas, window cleaning at height, and more. In fact rope access can be used as the method for access to allow technicians to carry out just about any building maintenance task at height that might crop up.

Rope access is often used for building maintenance in an industrial or commercial setting. However it can also be extremely useful in domestic settings such as large tenement blocks and other similar multistory dwellings. Taking on a rope access company to carry out the required building maintenance tasks can afford residents decent savings when compared to the cost of other alternative work at height building maintenance solutions. What is more, the hassle free nature of the way industrial rope access techniques allow work to be transported out safely and effectively with minimal disruption often make it extremely an extremely appealing option for building maintenance.

Troubleshooting Xbox 360 Red Flash

Microsoft Xbox 360 is a mind blowing game console. But it comes with its share of baggage as well. Hardware problems are integral parts of Xbox 360 and web pages after web pages have been dedicated to the discussion of the problem of 3 red lights on the Xbox.

In this article I will try my best to explain to you why these 3 red lights flash on the Xbox and what may be done to rectify this problem and prevent it from resurfacing.

One of the main causes behind the problem of 3 red lights is overheating and lack of cooling. When you keep the Xbox running for impossibly long hours, the component parts get heated up, it is not effectively cooled and the 3 red lights appear to bug you. To combat this problem, you should switch off the Xbox, unplug it from its socket and let it cool in a shady corner.

Alternately, you should bring out your console from your stuffy display cabinet and let it out in the fresh air, so that it may breathe.

Inadequate power supply is another culprit and to fix this problem, you have to unplug your Xbox from the shared power bar and plug it in properly and tightly to an independent power socket so that it can absorb the whole power itself.

Often GPU soldering joints fall loose. As a result the screen occasionally freezes and after a point of time, the dreaded 3 red lights will appear like Macbeth's 3 witches to haunt you.

Another rumor has it that when the power brick does not get enough air, it leads to the appearance of the 3 red lights on your Xbox 360. To fix this problem you should pick up the power brick from the floor and place it on a box so that it can let off its steam through all four sides and pump out all the hot air.

Cool Motorcycle Helmets, Getting Ready For The Summer

With the Summer months approaching fast, motorcycle riders are always looking for ways to remain cool while riding. Let's face it, wearing proper protective gear can be heavy and hot. This is also true when it comes to your motorcycle helmet. Here are 5 ways you can fight the heat.

1. The type of motorcycle helmet you wear can make a difference in temperature. A half helmet or and open face helmet will allow air flow directly over your face. Of course, proper eye protection should be worn along with these styles of helmets. Also, the more coverage a helmet overs, the more protection it offers. A full face helmet that covers your face and chin would offer more protection than a face face or half helmet. A good compromise would be a Flip-Up or Modular style. A Modular helmet allows you to Flip up the front section of your helmet. This is a good way to grab some cool air while stopped at a light or riding at lower speeds.

2. The Color can make a big difference. Studies have shown that a white helmet, when compared to a black, can be as much as 15 degrees cooler. It's simple science. Dark colors absorb the sun's heat. Three is no difference when it comes to your motorcycle helmet. A recent study showed that a white helmet was 15 degrees cooler than a black helmet while sitting still in the sun. At a speed of 40 mph, the white helmet was still 10 degrees cooler than the black helmet. According to the CDC, lighter colored helmets are also more visible and reduce your risk of being hit by another motorist by 25 percent.

3. The helmet ventilation system can make a big difference. Helmet ventilation has improved significantly over the last ten years. The days of two small holes in the forehead for vents has come and gone. Today's advanced helmets come available with advanced vent systems designed to move the air in and out of the helmet. Old school helmets depended on forced air to be directed into the small forehead vents. Today's technology allow helmets to draw the cool air in while extracting the hot air. Venturi vents are designed in a way that a rear vent draws cool air in from the front vent. At the same time, as your head is generating heat, rear and side vents are designed to extract the hot air. Not all new helmets have these vent features. In most cases, you will find that the higher quality helmets that put more effort into manufacturing and testing their helmets will offer better ventilation.

4. Some of today's helmet manufactures are using moisture wicking materials in their helmet liners. These materials often are named differently, but essentially serve the same purpose. The purpose is to absorb moisture while maintaining a cool and dry riding experience. Some of these liner systems have antibacterial properties and are helpful in keeping the helmet liner odor free.

5. If your helmet does not already have a moisture wicking liner, there are head liners that can be worn under your helmet to serve the same purpose. A Cool Max Headliner is worn like a bandana and not only wicks away moisture to keep you cool, but protects your helmet liner from dirt and odor.
