I'm buying two new rims for my van. I've found the right rims to buy price and similarity-wise
-- if they aren't the color they appear to be in the photograph. Can someone tell or make an educated guess whether the color would actually be closer to silver/gray? I'm hoping it's just the photo that is bad since I've never seen wheels with that copper color.

I flashed the biker wave on my ride home tonight, and as I was thinking some warm fuzzy thoughts about the "motorcycling fraternity", I noticed that the other rider was a woman. Is there a word which represents this concept in a gender-inclusive way? If "fraternity" has to do with brothers and "sorority" has to do with sisters, what word has to do with "siblings"?

Can anyone offer suggestions on how to extend / enhance performance of Silicon Carbide Convolute Wheels? I am using a pedestal grinder to deburr stainless steel parts we've manufactured. I am using Klingspor 8" hard wheels. We just put a new wheel on & it didn't take very long for the wheel to get out of round/ deformed. It becomes difficult to hold the part to deburr it- shaking/ wobbling. What am I doing wrong? How can I improve things?

i have an enormous chest and it's very heavy.
it's wood. i made it myself. it's about 1.5 metres squared and one metre high. i use it to store "stuff" in and i want to put casters on it, but not significantly increase its height.
the problem is that all the casters or wheels that would take the kind of weight of the chest are gi frickin' normous.
all the casters/wheels i've seen with a lower profile have quite low weight restrictions.
can i just put heaps more small casters on the box or do i have to put the huge casters on that fit the overall weight of my chest?
i believe the chest weighs in the vicinity of about 100kilograms.... and when you fill it with all the stuff i keep in it.... maybe 150-200 kilograms.
help me before i set fire to it in frustration.... my physics, like gravity, sucks.

The front wheels are making a grinding noise when I move the steering wheel to the left ('98 Accord.) Happens even when the brakes aren't being pressed. Can anyone provide a Bill Frist-style remote diagnosis, and will I regret it if I don't bring it in to the shop for two more days?

Why do most European cars use lug BOLTS to secure a wheel to a car as opposed to lug NUTS as in most American and Japanese cars? Is there an advantage or disadvantage?

From cycling I'm aware that rotational weight is the best to cut for efficiency, and when I think about my new car and ways to coax more mileage out of it, I wonder if getting a lighter set of wheels would improve that measurably? I can't tell if anyone has ever looked at gas savings vs. wheel weight before in my google searching. [+] [more inside]

When I was a kid, I forever played with the Hot Wheels plastic tracks that click together. The tracks also had loop de loop and corner accessories. It was fun, because not only could you run your cars on it, but it was also like Legos. Building your track down the stairs and racing your cars down it. Just hours and hours of fun. Fast forward, many years later, I now have young children, and I would like to get them the same thing. I've looked in quite a few toy stores and on eBay, and mostly what I find is one piece items that require no assembly, or just small lots on eBay. If you've played with them you know what I mean, the tracks had a tongue that slipped into the groove of the next track. Does anyone know where I can find this? Do they still make them? [more inside]
SkateFilter! Recommendations, please: good in-line skates, wheels, and accessories
for skating in DC? My skating environment alternates between urban streets and sidewalks on work days to well-paved bike trails on weekends. I prefer high speed to tricky maneuverability, though I will wish to jump the occasional crack, twist a quick turn-stop, or negotiate tight curves. [more inside]
