These stockings help increase circulation and reduce the risk of swelling or worse deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and clotting on a long flight.
One of the most well-known perks of compression socks is how they can help to prevent blood clots, a worry for many when traveling by air. They work to stimulate circulation in the lower half, which is especially useful during long flights when you`re sitting for prolonged periods.
Aspirin won`t help

“The short answer to that is, for most people, don`t.” He said there was “not a lot of evidence” that taking an aspirin before flying would prevent DVT, and there could be side effects. “You can get stomach irritation, bleeding, that sort of thing.

Use an inflatable foot rest.

It`s surprising how much more comfortable you can be with your feet lifted off of the ground just by a few inches. Design Go makes a lightweight, easily packable foot pillow that inflates with just a few puffs, elevating you closer to a lie-flat position.

It`s recommended to start wearing compression socks before you board your flight or hop in the car for a long trip. Since it`s safe to wear your travel compression socks for 16+ hours, don`t worry about putting them on early in the day. “I bought compression socks for the whole family for a 9-hour air flight.
If you`re at risk of a blood clot, you should wear compression socks. “Travelers who have a history of varicose veins, family or personal history of deep vein thrombosis should wear compression stockings when traveling,” Ombrellino says. If you`re on a long flight.
Graduated compression stockings or socks are usually recommended for flights that last longer than 3 hours, as this is when you will start to suffer physical health issues. For short flights, you only need to wear mild compression socks with a lower compression level.
As flight socks are designed to be worn to protect against blood clots forming, they can be worn all day and can be used during periods of high activity or even at rest. Naturally, travel compression socks are ideal aids for regular flyers and are generally sold at moderate levels of pressure (around 15-20 mmHg).
Blood clots can sometimes form in your legs during air travel because you are immobile for long periods of time, often sitting in cramped spaces with little leg room. The clinical term for this type of blood clot is deep vein thrombosis (DVT). The longer the flight, the more at risk you are for developing a clot.
Exercise can help improve blood flow in the body, and this can be particularly helpful in preventing blood clots from forming. Regular exercise can also help in breaking down existing blood clots. Low-impact exercises such as walking, cycling, and swimming are recommended as they are less strenuous on the body.

Raising (elevating) your legs above heart level helps. keep blood from pooling. This makes clots less likely to form. Elevating your legs works best if your lie flat on your back.

How to remove a stuck bolt from a shotgun holding the **** stock to the shotgun using a long philip screwdriver 3/8. I’m trying to change the **** stock with an aftermarket folding stock.
ANSWER : Hold the screw driver in to the screw as hard as you can and have someone hit the end of the handle with a hammer while you apply force to the screwdriver. This will shock the threads momentarily and it should break loose. You might want to have the gun in a vise while you do this. Hope this helps you

I have two pair of Stern fishing waders which are breathable with neoprene stockings. Both are leaking at the stocking seams but the last time that my son took his off, the neoprene stocking nearly came totally off.
I’m assuming that I can repair mine which are still relatively intact with Aqua Seal. Do you agree?
But my main question is, do you think that I can reglue the dangling stocking with Aqua Seal and then hand stitch (with a through and through continuous suture pattern) the seam with a really strong suture and then seal the suture holes with Aqua Seal. I can probably have the skill and material availabililty but don’t want to waste my time if you think it won’t work.
Online I saw some fly fishers who probably grew up in the 60s talk about Pliobond (apparently very aromatic and good for a good high) as being a much stronger bonder than Aqua Seal. Do you know anything about that and about its availability ? – because of its potential for abuse, it may be hard to get.
ANSWER : Hi, well that’s certainly a good idea, however i doubt that it would last long term.. i feel you would simply be spending good money after bad, as it were. You see the trouble is that this is one of the most movement prone areas of the whole waders. I don’t think anything short of vulcanization would effect any sort of reliable seal, for very long.

If it were me i think i would cut my losses and get myself a better quality pair of waders, as I know from experience that anything “Glues” with material simply fails after a short while, I mean one cannot even seal a water bed reliably with those products, long term.

In saying all that though, it may be worth a try, but i would try to get hold of some vulcanizing stuff to effect a repair such as this and try that, Neopreme isn’t all that structurally sturdy, and i fear it would simply tear along the repair path in use?

As a though, why not coat the entire insides of it with some sort of conformal coating sealant, this would at least keep the water out.?

Need the wire diagram to rewire my Ariens lawnmover to bypass the safety switch. It is Ariens GT-19 model # 931026 Serial # 001463.
Can you help? It is an old Ariens mower but still runs good but now I need to bypass the safety switch in order to run it any longer. The local Ariens dealer said I need to go through the internet and get the wire diagram as they cannot give it to me directly. They told me I needed the wire diagram and the part involved in bypassing the safety switch. Hope this is all the information you need to help me.

Thank you. Roger Fielitz

ANSWER : Here is owner manual: the switch is behind the ignition, sometimes at the N position of gearshift, just look for a switch with one wire coming in & one going out (usually the same color); disconnect the two wires & jumper them together to bypass the switch. Looks like yours has one under the seat.

Kettler tennis table has rusty legs, one is very bad
ANSWER : To stop this much rust – go to any hardware store and buy (I forget the exact name) a “paint” called Rust Stop. It will stop the rusting and turn the existing rust into a hard black surface that you can then paint.

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.
