The Tube & Pipe Journal January/February 2019 UPDATED January 18, 2019February 9, 2019 By Eric Lundin

The Tube & Pipe Journal January/February 2019 UPDATED January 18, 2019February 9, 2019 By Eric Lundin Although petroleum can be moved by road, waterway, and rail, it would be an understatement to say that the petroleum industry relies on pipeline for transportation. Approximately 72,000 miles of crude oil pipeline crisscross the U.S., a system that has been in development since 1860 or so. It’s part of the system that processes about 20 million barrels of oil per day in the U.S. No matter the pipe diameter, installations and repairs require cutting and weld preparations with counterbores (typically called ID transitions in the pipeline market) and flange facing. Machines that mount to the pipe’s exterior are indispensable, providing a platform for tooling that rotates around the pipe’s circumference, removing a bit of material with each pass until the cut or bevel is complete. They perform a cold-cutting process, generating little in the way of heat or sparks—a safety enhancement when working on lines that carry anything potentially flammable, like petroleum. Although the concept is 70 years old, technology advancements have facilitated the development of larger, sturdier, ...

It requires strength to forge ahead even as tragedy strikes. The staff of Howard’s Diamond Center had both, and the result is a sparkling new store that blends modern verve with nods to family and local history. In 1923, Samuel Posin, a Russian immigrant to West Virginia by way of China and San Francisco, opened a jewelry store in downtown Wheeling, WV. Samuel’s son, Howard, continued the family business with a new store downtown in 1980. “Howard’s Diamond Center was a small-town jewelry store with a loyal clientele that often spanned generations,” says Howard’s son, Seth. But downtown Wheeling was deteriorating even before the Great Recession hit. Seth Posin approached the developers of a new destination shopping center, The Highlands, which opened in 2004 with a Cabela’s outdoor store as its anchor. He learned there was no room on the original site for small shops, but there were eventua...

Hack My House: Raspberry Pi as a Touchscreen Thermostat

Your thermostat is some of the oldest and simplest automation in your home. For years these were one-temperature setting and nothing more. Programmable thermostats brought more control; they’re alarm clocks attached to your furnace. Then Nest came along and added beautiful design and “learning features” that felt like magic compared to the old systems. But we can have a lot more fun. I’m taking my favorite single-board computer, the Raspberry Pi, and naming it keeper of heat (and cool) by building my own touchscreen thermostat. Mercury thermostats started it all, and were ingenious in their simplicity — a glass capsule containing mercury, attached to a wound bi-metal strip. As the temperature changes, the contraption tilts and the mercury bead moves, making or breaking contact with the wiring. More sophisticated thermostats have replaced the mercury bead with electronics, but the signaling method remains the same, just a simple contact switch. This makes the thermostat the prime target for an aspiring home automation hacker. I’ve had this particular project in mind for quite some time, and was excited to dive into it with simple raw materials: my Raspberry Pi, a touchscreen, an...

8 Best Latte and Cappuccino Machines (2019): Breville, Mr. Coffee, and More

A good latte or cappuccino is like a rich milky mug of heaven. Just writing about these delicious, warming drinks makes me want one. Sadly, creating the perfect cap or latte at home can be a hassle. Making a barista-worthy espresso is tough enough, but adding the right amount of milk and foam, perfectly heated and combined, is surprisingly daunting. In mid-2018, I dove headfirst into the world of advanced coffee devices and find out what makes them tick … er … hiss. I’ve tried more than a dozen machines with latte and cappuccino functionality. Some machines made pure espresso using coffee-shop-style portafilters and came with milk canisters for frothing. Others relied on single-use pods with separate foamers. A few even came with legit steam wands and advanced options. These are the best latte and cappuccino machines I’ve found so far. Updated Dec. 2018: Fellow Gear writer Adrienne So and I have prepped this guide for 2019, with two new top picks, the Mr. Coffee One-Touch Coffeehouse, and Breville Bambino Plus.

Kevin Durant ruled out for Game 1 of NBA Finals; DeMarcus Cousins questionable

Warriors forward Kevin Durant has been ruled out of Game 1 of the NBA Finals against the Raptors on Thursday night with a strained right calf. Durant hasn’t played since suffering the injury in the third quarter of Game 5 of the second round in Houston on May 8. Though he has done some light shooting on his own, Durant hasn’t been cleared for on-court work with the team. General manager Bob Myers said Durant probably will accompany the Warriors to Toronto on Tuesday, though that decision has not been finalized. After playing Game 1 on Thursday, Golden State has two off days before playing Game 2 on Sunday. Asked about Durant possibly traveling with the team, Myers told The Chronicle, “I think he will, is what I’m hearing. We probably need to know that by (Tuesday). My sense is that he would.” As for the possibility of Durant and center DeMarcus Cousins playing in the Finals, Myers said, “Hopefully, both will have an opportunity. But it depends on how they respond to the next phase of recovery. They both have a chance.” Cousins, who has been out since Game 2 of the first round with a torn left quadriceps muscle, is questionable for Game 1 of the NBA Finals. He completed his third...
