    [–] hmmm Peppyperoni 7 points ago in hmmm

    That's a sewing machine.

    Thanks! That's great to know! I like voting with my wallet and will do so. Might be tough in my backwater unfortunately. I know for a fact my past (and current) supplier just buys uline shit and rips the label off. Funny enough when they started doing that the quality of everything we got (garbage bags, toilet paper, kraft paper) went to shit.

    [–] TIL the Great Lakes have at least 6,000 shipwrecks with some estimates as high as 25,000 Peppyperoni 6 points ago in todayilearned

    But lots of times in the mornings and evenings it can be so ridiculously still and mirrory it can blow your mind. Especially when it's dead calm in the morning, the blows like hell all afternoon then magically after dinner its flat as a board again. That's my experience in Georgian Bay anyway.

    What's the problem with them? They've totally infiltrated my area and the independent guys have become uline distributors. All I know about them is they'll never sell me packing material because they send us so many fucking catalogues I can just use them instead.

    [–] Tool that doesn't exist? | MAKE IT! Peppyperoni 3 points ago in Skookum

    Looks beautiful and I'd love one, but working on boats I don't trust myself with heirloom quality tools. Or more accurately, with non-magnetic heirloom quality tools.

    these people actually dont know all that much because they are the kind of people who think they have nothing to learn.

    Amen. I work for that guy.

    This is called 'indoor eavestrough'. I had a funnel stapled to the ceiling with a hose attached once.

    [–] Teeny tiny allen keys Peppyperoni 1 points ago in Skookum

    That's a good idea! I'll keep that in mind. Although some of them are way tiny and in God awful positions. Sometimes I might like to light a fire under the whole machine.

    [–] Cape Town 'day zero' moved to June 4th, national disaster declared. The city will run out of water on this day Peppyperoni 48 points ago in worldnews

    I'd like to see a source on that. I'm not going to provide one either but it's my understanding that more Maya are alive today than at 'contact'.

    [–] This looks really fake to me Peppyperoni 5 points ago in CaptainDisillusion

    I can't say to this particular instance, but there exists a level where skill and magic are the same thing. Occasionally that happens when you're 6 years old.

    [–] Surfing on train waves Peppyperoni 12 points ago in gifs

    Being on rails dragging the boat/plow underneath its already orders of magnitude more efficient than any boat. And large boats make a much larger wake (and on both sides) than this appears to do. This seems designed for one large wave and that's it. Silly? Yes. Extravagant? Yes. But probably when you really look at it not much more wasteful than say a bobsled track.

    I've found Allen keys to be hard to find lately. Not the keys really but power bits and any style other than keys. Torx-a-plenty but Allen stuff is rarer. I wonder if maybe a patent expired and people stopped making them or something?

    [–] Teeny tiny allen keys Peppyperoni 1 points ago in Skookum

    Try sewing machines for weenie little screws seized like they were cast in place. The bad part is breaking off the tip of the driver in the microscopic fastener. I'll take blood over that any day.

    [–] I never thought rulers could be sexy, but here we are. [2100x1400] Peppyperoni 0 points ago in DesignPorn

    Clearly it isn't the right tool for you. This portion of the discussion was talking about high precision tools.

    I don't think that it was. Look up, look waaaaaay up

    I dislike rulers that don’t start and stop right at the very beginning and end. That little space before the increments start is annoying.

    [–] My wife said at least it wasn't rusty. LOL Found this in my Caesar salad last weekend. Peppyperoni 3 points ago in WTF

    That may well be correct but I like this style because when you're using a ratcheting box wrench it doesn't slip down the bolt and off the nut. It's the little things that make me happy.

    [–] Some folks will just never know the satisfaction of taking $3000 in tools, and $2 in scrap and making a $7 part that can be bought for a $1.50 Peppyperoni 23 points ago in Skookum

    This is a long standing truism in crafting circles. Especially textiles. Why by a pair of pants for $15 when you can buy 4 yards of $30/yard fabric and spend 40 hours making them yourself?
