    Never thought about that one.I'll have to check that out the next time an AL job comes up. I have seen the T.V. affected by my wife's sewing machine. The pitch of the speakers & the lines on the screen would change with the RPM of the sewing machine. VERY ANNOYING AS SHE ALWAYS SEEMED TO SEW DURING THE ''GOOD PART'' OF THE SHOW.

    Shattuck, OK


    I've never had any complaints from the neighbors as far as interference and that stuff is concerned. I do have one neighbor that likes to piss and moan about the noise levels every time I fire up the old engine drive to do some small job in the driveway or garage (we still lack a plug for my machine, Grandma won't let me unplug the dryer every time I need to weld something). This same neighbor also used to ***** ever time I'd drive away in my old 79 Chevy with the straight-pipes. I used to drive by her house, stop at the stopsign, stomp it and squall the tires around the corner just to piss her off. I can see where the HF TIG might cause a problem, might want to check that out but other than that everything should be fine.

    Obviously, you've never been to Honolulu. When average lot sizes are 5,000 SF or less, your neighbors are much closer to you than 50 ft. In fact, you'd be lucky if your yard was 50 ft wide.

    summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.
