Laser rangefinders use a visible laser beam to measure distance. Place the laser rangefinder on the ground and point it toward the object you want the distance from to find the range. The laser beam projects out and will bounce back on the reflective material that the golf course has placed on possible targets.
Set Up & Ease of Use

Like most rangefinders, it has two buttons on the top. The power button turns it on and brings up your distance. The “Y/M” button switches the units between meters and yards. There is also a slide on the unit`s side which turns the slope adjustment on and off.

How to use it: Simply look through the eyepiece and aim the rangefinder`s crosshairs at the object you need to calculate the distance to. Hold the rangefinder steady and briefly press the power button on top one time. The display screen will read the distance of your targeted object in yards or meters.
To get a good lock on your target, its best to aim the rangefinder at the biggest part of the object. So if you`re aiming for a flagstick, aim at the flag and if you`re trying to work out how far that water hazard is, aim at one of the red stakes marking where the hazard starts.
A device shoots a laser at an object and times how long it takes for the light to reach it. It then uses the speed of light and the time it took for the light to travel to calculate the distance. You used to have to carry a separate device to check the range and then adjust your scope.
What are the adjustment knobs on the top and side of the scope called? Adjustment knobs on a rifle scope are called turrets. The top turret is to adjust elevation while the side turret is for windage adjustments.
To adjust the vertical alignment, get the camera focused on a distant object so that the two images line up one below the other. With the flat-head driver in the slot for the adjusting screw, rotate until the images also align vertically.
Golf Rangefinder Technology

Using one of your eyes as you would when looking through any type of scope, a golf rangefinder magnifies the target and shoots a laser beam at it in order to determine the exact distance. The target in question that you would use a rangefinder to determine the distance to can be anything.

How does a laser rangefinder work? Laser rangefinders emit electromagnetic pulses in laser beams via their optoelectronic systems. The laser beam is reflected off the target`s surface and returns to the rangefinder. Next, the rangefinder`s systems process the beam to measure the distance.
The first thing is to use the 15-feet formula. This formula should be approached as follows: If there is an uphill or a downhill shot of 15 feet of elevation, add or subtract one club. If there is more than 15 feet, add or subtract one club for every 15 feet.
Well, a little compared to a rangefinder. When you look through a rangefinder, you see as your eyes would, with everything in focus, and a little frame inside the viewfinder denoting what the boundaries of the photo will be.

Learning your yardages will be exponentially easier with a rangefinder. When you go to a driving range and hit shots to various target flags, you need to know exactly how far those targets are to learn what each club in your bag is capable of from a distance standpoint.
You may find aiming the rangefinder challenging in the initial stages, but, once you have learned how to aim the rangefinder, it is not difficult at all. You will see the total distance to the target even if it takes a while to calculate it.
You can have both or choose one depending on what best works in your situation. A laser rangefinder will offer you accurate distance and high precision shooting. A spotting scope with extra features might provide you with a wider field of view, speed, target size, and wind drift correction.
Most rifle scopes have 1/4 MOA adjustments. This means that one click will move the bullet impact a quarter of an inch at 100 yards. However, this means that you need to make four times the number of clicks (16 clicks = 1 inch) to move the bullet impact the same distance at 25 yards.
Elevation, Windage, and Parallax Adjustments

The top turret is the elevation dial, and the windage dial is on the right; These are the areas you`ll want to focus on when you`re sighting in your scope. As far as those numbers go, they`ll either be represented in MOA or MILs.

The three most common adjustments for any rifle scope are for elevation, windage and parallax.
For laser rangefinders, things are just as easy. With a laser like PRO LX+, simply power on and use the focus ring on the eyepiece to bring your target into focus. You can then choose to use the golf mode – allowing you to lock on to a specific target like the pin by pressing the power button.
Golf rangefinders can be used for hunting, but may not be as efficient as hunting rangefinders. Golfers should avoid using rangefinders designed for hunting, as they are ineffective.

I have purchased three 750-watt power inverters in the last three weeks. They have all failed to work on the second or third use. The first two were the same brand. I replaced an old one that ran for several years. I am using it to run a 4.7 amp 120-volt vacuum cleaner motor that pumps up my air dock. I have it connected directly with marine cable to one of the boat batteries. The battery outputs about 12.8 volts DC. The fuses don?t blow, just No Output. I am using a three-wire 120-volt extension cord and am, wired neutral, hot and ground to the AC motor vial an on/off switch. The motor works fine when I run house power with an extension cord from the dock next to me. Could I be, just unlucky with new inverters and need to buy a forth one?
ANSWER : The problem may be that the inverter is undersized for the load. Is the 4.7 Amp rating the motor peak draw or the nominal one. What I mean is that it takes many times more power to start start the motor than when the motor is running. Typically it is 3 to 7 times more amps to start the motor than when it is running. It could be that starting the vacumm cleaner is stressing the inverter and it is causing it to fail prematurely. If you can find out the locked rotor current draw of the motor, the that would be the mininum size of the inverter.

Also, the type of inverter will make a difference on how the motor operates. A modified sine wave will make the motor run hotter than a pure sine wave inverter. Hope this helps.

Hiya I have a fujifilm e-900 I have used the camera less than 20 times. The last time I used it I had no problems at all. I had left it sitting in it’s case for 6 months. Now when I try and us it I get the hand with lightning bolt on the lcd. Which I assume means the battery encasement is open. It isn’t open. The camera turns on no problem then when I try and use any function it shuts down. How do I fix this?
ANSWER : The hand with the lightning bolt icon usually means the camera is telling you that there is not enough light and you need to pop the flash up before you take a picture.
If you haven’t used the camera for a while have you tried fresh batteries or charged the 2 re chargeable AA’s that came with the camera?

I bought the Knoxx adjustable stock for my mossberg 500. The forend that comes with it is realy nice and Ide like to use it, but the end nut will not reach the threads. Do i need to buy a new adapter nut that is longer to secure my forend ? I saw one for sale by houge but wasnt sure if that would work on the knoxx forend ?? I realy like the forend sent by knoxx, would be a shame not to use it. What a waste to give that nice piece away and not give the adapter to use it ?? Thanks Noel
ANSWER : That forearm is designed for the 7 5/8″ slide action tube. I’m guessing yours is the 6 1/2″ slide action tube. Take the forearm off your tube and measure it with a ruler. From the very back edge of the action bar collar….that round part the bars are pinned to….all the way to the front edge of the threads. If yours is a 6 1/2″, the Hogue adapter won’t work. You’ll need to buy a new slide action tube. That Hogue adapter is meant to let you use the Hogue rubber coated forearm on your standard sized tube….the Hogue rubber forearm is a hair longer than the standard tube. It won’t give you the length to make up the entire shorter tube length. If you’re handy with a dremel, you could go adapter plus a bit of careful cutting but I won’t suggest you do it if you aren’t certain of your skills.

I have the Intex Sand/Pump pool filter Model SF 20110. It’s been running real great for the last 4 months. However recently it has been tripping the internal overloads and I have found the pump motor to be very hot when I put my hand against it. I have tried several different solutions, such as a level ground platform that was clear of any obstructions, made sure that the motor vents under the motor was clear of anything that would prevent air flow. I used a non electrical type of lubricate on the impeller. When I would turn on the pump the rotor would not turn but only would hum very loudly and then slowly begin to turn. I also noticed that the motor’s rotor shaft would not turn to freely due the tightness around the rotor’s shaft. After using the lubricate the shaft would turn a little easier. I used an amp meter on the incoming voltage line and the motor would run at 4.5 amp. And yet it still overheated and tripped the motor overloads. I can only think that the motor is still not getting enough ventilation. I have check and cleared all the incoming lines and found nothing block the pumps input or output lines. Any suggestion?
ANSWER : I just looking into this issue my self. The pump cools itself by a internal fan, which is run by the motor. Well I took the housing cover off to find out all the fan blades have broken off and were setting in the base of the pump. Once you remove the fan blades from covering the air intake, it might be fine. I will find out my self once summer gets here.
