1. S. [Formation Evaluation]

The unit of radioactivity used for natural gamma ray logs. This unit is based on an artificial concrete block from the University of Houston in Texas, USA, which is defined with a radioactivity of 200 units API (American Petroleum Institute). This radioactivity was chosen because it is considered twice the radioactivity of a typical shale. Formation is the primary standard for calibrating the gamma ray logs. However, even if they are properly calibrated, the different tools will not produce gamma necessarily identical readings in downhole because the detectors can have different spectral sensitivities. Only give the same reading when the downhole formation containing the same proportions of thorium, uranium and potassium standard Houston. For example, the logging tool during drilling (LWD) possess accommodations thicker than the wireline, leading to a different spectral response for the three sources of radioactivity and therefore generates different reading total gamma some formations. The calibration center hole nuclear logs of the University of Houston, known as API pools, was inaugurated in 1959 for the calibration of natural gamma ray and neutron. Subsequently added to calibrate center records natural gamma ray spectroscopy.

Need Ryobi drill press help

I bought a used Ryobi DP100 benchtop drillpress with no belt. I have discovered the belt is discontinued and I can't find one anywhere (brilliant!). Any chance anyone on here has a similar drillpress and could measure the belt or get a number off of it so I can source one elsewhere?
Thanks in advance.

Craftsman Drill Press Phase 1 motor help ?

Hello all, I'm kinda new to this so I'll make it quick.
I have an old Craftsman Drill Press. The motor has been going bad for a while now. I would like to replace the motor BEFORE it's shot all together. I know NOTHING about this kind of stuff, however, was curious as if this motor can be used elsewhere and I just buy a new one.
I was thinking of suing this motor in a less stressful area, by taking it off and using it as a maybe a grinder or something. can I control the speed or does Phase 1 mean it only goes one speed.
Here is the link for the Drill Press just in case you need more to go on

Speeds on a drill don't change

Hi boys and girls.
i have a Bosch drill. has 2 gears, that works. and a hammering sorta function. that works too.
However, it used to be that when u press the on button
a little bit it goes slow and when u press it hard goes fast.
now, it doesn't work till u push the button in all the way, and then it goes crazy. it's messing up all my heads.
i'm thinking it's probeably because of the switch itself (the thing that looks like a trigger). any alternative ideas before i order the part?
