Only a couple centuries ago, if somebody claimed they could hold lightning in their hand to fuse steel, they would stand a pretty good chance of being burned at the stake for witchcraft.

So when you weld you aren’t “glueing” metals together like soldering does, you’re actually using heat to make two pieces one, and that’s pretty dang cool. There are tons of ways to weld. There’s forge welding, where metal is heated and then beaten or pressed together. There’s oxy-fuel welding, which uses a blow torch to heat the metal and filler rod.

But once you … [Read more...] about Be A Modern-Day Wizard By Mastering The Art Of Welding
Federal tax credits on plug-in vehicles begin to phase out after the 200,000th sale of qualifying cars since 2010. California electric-car maker Tesla hit the mark in July. That means the tax credit — which could lop a significant $7,500 off the price of a Model S, Model X and Model 3 — will phase out over the next 17 months. Related: Video: We Take a Deep Dive Into the Tesla Model 3 If you're shopping for one, questions abound. Here's what you need to know: How does the tax credit work? Federal tax credits on plug-in vehicles range from $2,500 to $7,500, based on battery capacity.

Remember, a tax credit is different from a tax deduction, which merely reduces your total taxable income. A credit reduces the taxes you owe, so a $7,500 credit is the same as $7,500 going in your wallet come tax day, provided you owe … [Read more...] about Tesla Tax Credit Is Expiring: Here’s Everything Shoppers Need to Know

Those bemoaning the demise of small and lovable hatchbacks in the U.S. auto market can bemoan slightly less now, for I have confimed a legal way that you can own a new Mazda 2 hatchback in the U.S. Astute readers may know that that the newest-generation Mazda 2 never made it to the 50 states. Scion, and later Toyota, offered a reskinned version of the 2 sedan as the iA and later the Yaris iA, but would-be hatch buyers were out of luck. Had they been willing to expand their search, they would have been rewarded with great bounties of fun-to-drive Japanese hatchbacks located just off our coasts.
