Today was like Christmas. I got these goodies today.

 

IMG_0026.thumb.JPG.2c33f1de113a7110b67f918f6355ddb7.JPG

 

I was driving by Ace Hardware today and decided to drop in and see what they might have on sale. They had two mpre of those 12" Quick Grip clamps I had gotten earlier so I glommed onto them.

 

Later in the day,  was driving by another Ace and dropped in. No clamps on sale but they did have an "imp" (slang for a midget tubing cutter for use in tight spots) on sale. I've been planning on getting one of them for quite some time and, for 4 shekels, I couldn't pass that up.

IMG_0035.thumb.JPG.98cd6bc6af7ffe8e0971be0fbf538b58.JPG

 

I've been wanting a set of self centering drill bits for a long time and have a project coming up that could use one so I ordered a set off Fleabay.

 

IMG_0030.thumb.JPG.eb14292766d6e403ef5d4cfdede0b014.JPG

 

I already have one of these four port USB 3.0 hubs that will be used with my desktop machine (whenever I finish building the darn thing!) but I might need a second one. Also, the notebook I'm going to set up for Linux has only three USB ports: two USB 3.0 (excuse me, USB 3.1 Gen 1: a pox on the morons who made that change 😠 ) and one USB 2.0 port located on the right side near the front. Besides the USB 2.0 (or is that USB 2.1 Gen 1? /s) being in a rather inconvenient location, I often need more than three ports (I'm often using five ports--one port has a two port hub plugged into it--on my Win 7 notebook). So I got two more of the hubs.

 

IMG_0029.thumb.JPG.e0ffa7de87d44a0e353e4c17eeef1daf.JPG

 

The first time I bought one of these, it didn't like more than two USB flash drives plugged into it and I had to return it for a replacement, which worked great. So when I got these, I tested each one with, first, three drives and a mouse dongle, then with four drives, plugging the hub into both a USB 3.1 Gen 1 (😠) port and a USB 2.0 port. They worked great. My only complaint is the really bright, blue light that comes from that strip on top. I currently painting over the stripes to block the light. It will take several coats (that's what I did with the first hub I got).

Its an AS73 so it actually wasnt much! I paid around 550 CAD. As for pickups, threstock ones are fine after adjusting the height and pole pieces so they'll remain for now. I might reverse the magnet in the neck though because I like out of phase tones in the middle.

I'm a collector, and I've always vowed to get another Wii U when I had to sell mine for money in college.


Here's what I'm restarting my collection with.

Here is the console in my entertainment center, with the pro controller charging.

A few things.

Yes I have a Switch.

Yes I prefer the Switch.

I rebought a Wii U because 1) I'm a collector.  2) I vowed to get another one.  3) It does hold a special place in my heart.  It was the first console I bought with my own money outside of high school.

Car insurance. Surprisingly, with 10 months of ownership of me car, a year of no claims bonus, 1yr 3mths since obtaining my licence and actually being 18 instead of 17, my insurance got halved xD

Dad got this 120GB feller to replace the trusty Hitachi 80GB 5.4KRPM ripper in my file server/video workhorse. Not having to wait multiple minutes for it to boot and then a few more to do anything will be nice.

 

EDIT: Ok I'm salty how fast my file server boots now lol. Server 2012 R2 boots so quick you get about 3-5 seconds of the UEFI spinny boi and then you're dumped in the desktop and ready to go 3 seconds after that (about 20-25 seconds from button press to full chooch). Compared to my main rig that takes a full minute from button press to ready...

 

Also peep my phone's increasingly bad camera. Hopefully that'll be fixed once mom has money to get my sister and lil ol me our upgrades.

Weird, every phone when I set up without a sim, and then later insert a Bell sim. Seems to wipe the entire phone.

I've had my Eastpak backpack for almost 10 years now, but last month I noticed that there are wear holes in the bottom corners.  Time for a new backpack. 

I decided to give the eBags TLS Professional Slim a try. 

1959446818_eBagsTLSProfessionalSlim.jpg.d7f930e09e876cfc38fd82ed93b985ce.jpg

Loving it, but it's not perfect.  The metal zipper pulls are clanking like crazy, so I'll probably modify those soon to quiet them down.

I also heard about people accidentally dropping this bag because the plastic clips at the bottom of the shoulder straps can let go, so I'm looking into replacing those with carabiners ASAP.

Just picked this up in the mail today.

 

IMG_0045.thumb.JPG.d24d269d383d6d297057fd7d99bdde24.JPG

The table on my bandsaw is pretty small (12" x 12") and the miter gauge is a bit of a joke (small and a bit sloppy) so I'm going to make a bigger table (probably 18" x 18" or maybe a bit bigger) from built-up aluminum plate to replace the old one. I did make a wooden sled for cutting stock too large for the miter gauge but the fit of the oak runner would get tight when the humidity was high or get loose when it was low and the sled itself eventually warped.

 

I can make the miter gauge slot by using two 3/8" plates over another plate, leaving a gap between them. I will have to mill a 1/16" x 1/8" rabbit on the bottom edge of each top plate that will form the slot for the disk on the end of the miter gauge bar that keeps the miter gauge from tipping when it overhangs the front edge of the table. I can probably use my Daddy's home made router table for his 1/2 HP router to make the rabbit by using a 1/4" shank straight carbide bit and taking really light passes.

 

I'm debating on whether to make the fence for the new miter gauge from oak or aluminum bar stock. Either one will take about the same amount of work.

 

I'm still debating on how to make a rip fence. I could just use a piece of aluminum bar or angle stock for it and use small bar clamps to secure it or get some 1/16" x 1" x 2" aluminum tube and dismantle the old fence, move the "innards" from the old fence to the new one, and extend the clamp screw. I would have to use a piece of heavy sheet or light plate on the blade side of the fence since the old fence "innards" has a plastic piece on the bottom at each end that leaves a gap at the bottom of the fence that thin stock can slip under (I currently have a piece of 1/16" aluminum sheet fastened to the old fence to fill that gap). Decisions, decisions!

 

When I get around to making the new table, I'll document it on the tool thread.

I've got, uh, a whole fucking lot to post here, so I'll contain each in spoilers.

Various VHS tapes:

I bought a lot over the past two weeks with tapes. Here's a few of 'em.

Japanese tapes. Yeah.

 

Also, here's a comparison between the two copies of that one VeggieTales episode I have.

Two different prints of Larry-Boy and the Rumor Weed.

The one on the left was released for the Christian bookstore market. Distributed by Word Entertainment, this tape contains a promo for the accompanying soundtrack.

The one on the right was released for standard retailers. Distributed by Lyrick Studios, this tape does not contain any previews... or any copyright warnings, to the best of my knowledge, either.
