International Vs. Texas Bidders At J. Garrett Auctioneers~Both Win

Carrara marble sculpture of Pharaoh’s daughter holding the infant Moses in a blanketed basket by Nineteenth Century Italian sculptor Biggi Fausto sold at more than double its high estimate, realizing $35,840. DALLAS – J. Garrett Auctioneers presented an auction on April 27-29 featuring the corporate and personal collections of Sandra Clements, a renowned figure who dominated the Southern antiques and auction world for decades and who, at one time, was responsible for decorating numerous estates all along the gold coast of Florida with antiques and decorative arts. Sandra Clements has been a well-known fixture in the antique, auction and interior design trades for more than 40 years. Daughter of the late, renowned antique dealer Charles W. Clements Sr, Sandra was instrumental in carrying on the Clements tradition of excellence since the mid-1980s. Clements was also one of the first female auctioneers in the country – and she was “one of the best!” Julie Garrett VanDolen said. “She came to the block with a great sense of humor – she was funny and would run an auction fast. The crowd loved her, and she really knew her business.” VanDolen is one of the four Garrett family members wh...

Following a few years of uncertainty with TPD regulations and Brexit, the e-cigarette industry is still

Following a few years of uncertainty with TPD regulations and Brexit, the e-cigarette industry is still on an upward trend. 2018 saw the rise of the Juul in both the US and UK, an increase in both demand and supply for new vaping technology and more support from public health bodies. With a global projected CAGR of 20.8% in the next decade, the vaping industry and manufacturers are evolving as quickly as possible to cater to an evolving market. An increase in pod kits following the success of Juul and an increased uptake in vaping amongst smokers: In 2018 the number of vapers in the UK broke 3 million and on top of that there was a 30 fold increase in vape shops on the high street. Following more support and from the likes of the NHS and Public Health England, vaping and its reputation is seen as more valid and legitimate amongst smokers. Add to that campaigns like Stoptober and Vapril encouraging smokers to try vaping as a legitimate means of smoking cessation, we’re expecting to see an increase again in the number of entry level vapers in 2019. While the market for advanced vaping equipment is fairly saturated, the biggest gap currently is in the entry level market. With the ...

Bridging a Skills Gap with Micromachining : Modern Machine Shop

As experienced model makers aged out of the jewelry industry, R&D Manufacturing found a faster alternative to hand crafting in Datron’s Neo micro milling machine. It all came down to rpm.  R&D Manufacturing CEO Phil Montalto stands next to the Datron Neo, a milling machine that he describes as a “game-changing” technology for the company. The creation of master models and prototypes for jewelry has been reduced in some cases by 4,000% by switching from 3D printing to milling.  Here is an example of the molding process R&D Manufacturing commonly uses for its jewelry parts. To make this bracelet clasp, the Datron Neo is first used to mill the mold out of aluminum. The mold is filled with wax, which is then covered in plaster and placed in the oven. The heat melts the wax and hardens the plaster, leaving a cavity into which the molten metal can be poured to make the clasp.  Design engineer Marc Fournier uses the Neo’s touchscreen interface to set up an aluminum mold job. Having no machining experience, the Neo’s optical system for locating the workpiece has been a significant benefit. All he has to do is use his finger to locate the part visually, and the control takes ...

In a conversation with Rachel Kyte, the U.N. special representative and CEO of Sustainable Energy for

In a conversation with Rachel Kyte, the U.N. special representative and CEO of Sustainable Energy for All discusses how this energy sector has changed in the past decade and what happens when political will doesn’t match the science. Rachel Kyte has a unique perspective on climate change and the environment. She’s both a special representative to the United Nations and CEO of an international organization called Sustainable Energy for All, technically one job for which she wears two hats. All the work is geared toward broadening access to sustainable energy worldwide, including for the billion or so people who still don’t have access to electricity. When Kyte came to Penn at the invitation of the Kleinman Center for Energy Policy, she spoke to an overflowing room about the U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goals, how the world can more easily transition to renewables, and how, despite the progress to date, there’s still much farther to go. I’ve worked in aspects of sustainable development for a long time. I started off in youth politics in Europe, and in the early days of understanding climate change it was acid rain [that people worried about], but it was also the colonial footpri...

Understand the hidden costs of free 0-10V LED dimming drivers (MAGAZINE)

Roland Ledyard explains how 0-10V and digitally-connected LED drivers differ in functionality, and how those differences are manifested in commercial solid-state lighting installations. ROLAND LEDYARD explains how 0-10V and digitally-connected LED drivers differ in functionality, and how those differences are manifested in commercial solid-state lighting installations. One of the most persuasive words in marketing has got to be “free,” despite the fact that we generally know that nothing in life is truly free, especially when it comes to LED drivers. Dimming functionality in drivers, implemented based on 0-10V controls, is sometimes touted as free, but in reality nearly every technology decision has a cost associated with it. Read along to learn about the issues with 0-10V LED drivers that can lead you to optimal selection and understand how more-robust digitally-addressable drivers may ultimately prove more economical in an actual solid-state lighting (SSL) project. The adage that nothing truly comes for free is certainly true for 0-10V LED drivers. Many 0-10V LED fixture manufacturers offer dimming drivers as a no-cost upgrade versus what we will call switching dr...

Affordable Suspension and Brake Upgrade for Your Classic Chevy

Do you ever feel like you’ll never be able to afford world-class handling and braking components? When you’re on a beer and pretzel budget and can’t afford a down payment on a free meal, it’s impossible to even think about the purchase of a high-tech suspension system for your Chevelle, Camaro, Nova, or fullsize Bowtanker. But what if we told you that an affordable suspension system is as close as Performance Online (POL)? POL offers great quality tubular control arms, springs, shocks, and steering components for classic Chevys, including fullsize, Camaro, Chevelle, and Nova. These components are powdercoated, bushed, and ready to install. They will change the way you feel about driving a classic Chevy. It is important to note the POL control arms will not fit Chevys with factory drum brakes. When you order the control arms, your plan must include disc brakes. In fact, POL suggests you order both disc brakes and front drop spindles for best results. We’ve opted to go with the POL Stage 3 front suspension kit for 1968-’72 Chevelle and El Camino with tubular control arms, three-way adjustable shocks, coil springs, and adjustable stabilizer bar endlinks. You have a choice of stock ...

It’s ridiculously easy to lay hands on a cheap DC-to-AC inverter these days. They’re in just

It’s ridiculously easy to lay hands on a cheap DC-to-AC inverter these days. They’re in just about every discount or variety store and let you magically plug in mains powered devices where no outlets exist. Need 120- or 240-VAC in your car? No problem – a little unit that plugs into the lighter socket is available for a few bucks. So are these commodity items worth building yourself? Probably not as [GreatScott!] explains, but learning how they work and what their limitations are will probably help your designs. The cheapest and most common inverters have modified square wave outputs, which yield a waveform that’s good enough for most electronics and avoids the extra expense of producing a pure sinusoidal output. He explains that the waveform is just a square wave with a slight delay at the zero-crossing points to achieve the stepped pattern, and shows a simple H-bridge circuit to produce it. He chose to drive the output section with an Arduino, to easily produce the zero-crossing delay. He uses this low-voltage inverter to demonstrate how much more complicated the design needs to get to overcome the spikes caused by inductive loads and the lack of feedback from the output. Bott...
