The History of Clay Poker Chips

Written by Dani Martin


Forrepparttar last 75 years, clay chips have not actually been constructed out of pure clay. Actual clay chips were used inrepparttar 142849 United States duringrepparttar 142850 late 1800's; however, these easily broken chips were quickly replaced by clay filled composites that provided much greater durability and security.

Inrepparttar 142851 early part ofrepparttar 142852 1900ís chips were commonly molded from Plaskon, an ureaformaldehyde molding compound. Inrepparttar 142853 1930ís die cut metal foil was applied torepparttar 142854 chips to give unique identity and added security. Bugsy Siegel openedrepparttar 142855 Flamingo Casino with these chips.

Remote Control Car Motors

Written by Michael Paetzold


All types of racing cars have different types of motors. Some have single or some have double. It is really confusing to try to sort outrepparttar difference between a single our double motor car. Plus a newbie intorepparttar 142807 world of remote control cars gets easily disoriented with what is a 13 turn double or a 13 turn singleÖ?

Well, in plain speaking language it refers to number of timesrepparttar 142808 wires are wrapped aroundrepparttar 142809 armature. A 13 turn double would be 2 strands wrapped 13 times. A 13 turn single would be 1 wire wrapped 13 times. The double wires have more torque where as single wires have more speed. In general, it means that more turns means more torque but less speed and vice versa. Thatís lower turns means lower torque and greater RPM. The number of winds describes how abruptlyrepparttar 142810 motor accelerates. Fewer winds would mean less abrupt acceleration and more winds would lead to smoother accelerations.

Torque basically refers to how much a force is acting on motor that causes motor to rotate. If there is more than one force acting on a motor then each of these forces shall apply torque. The net torque acting uponrepparttar 142811 motor shall berepparttar 142812 sum total of allrepparttar 142813 forces or torques acting upon a motor. It is usually required for cars racing onrepparttar 142814 twisted tracks.

Remote control cars come with two kinds of motors:repparttar 142815 ones with brush and ones without i.e. Brushless. The brushless motor has windings located aroundrepparttar 142816 outside ofrepparttar 142817 motor andrepparttar 142818 magnets are located onrepparttar 142819 moving motor shaft. A brushless motor does not provide any friction therefore provides higher RPM. But a brushless requires a lot of processing power thatís why it has not been a great success with RC trucks or cars.
