    [–] Did I mess this up? Were these threads supposed to be connected? Peppyperoni 2 points ago in weaving

    You're the designer, did you want them connected? If you had woven both colours at the same time and interlaced both wefts before you sent it back through the shed it would've stayed one peice with mostly a straight break between colours. You could also wrap each weft around the warp thread beside it. That would also remain one peice but it'd be a more zig zaggy break between colours.

    [–] Almost a deadly accident on Trans Canada highway in Ontario Peppyperoni 20 points ago in ontario

    Most of northern Ontario looks like you're driving on a 50 km loop until you magically appear in Manitoba.

    [–] Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk Are Ramping Up Their Space Race - Both billionaires are pouring new resources into their space-exploration programs. Peppyperoni 34 points ago in space

    I expect 'yacht scientist' jobs are few and far between. 'Yacht engineer' jobs are much more common but that just means you're covered in fibreglass and your clothes are one step away from rags. I identify as a marine fabricator which would fit somewhere on that spectrum, but let me tell you, glamorous it ain't. Fun though, if you like that kind of thing.

    [–] Canadians report paying less than $7 for cannabis gram Peppyperoni 1 points ago in canada

    The majority of growers I've met have been super meticulous and concerned about the quality of their product. (Although I don't hang out with bikers or ethnic mobsters.) The government is trying to paint all blackmarket producers with the same brush: Dangerous Criminals! The guys I know are much more like astute cash croppers. I expect they'll carve a niche into this new market opportunity. I believe they're smarter than the powers that be, and understand the market better.

    [–] Hand Operated Coconut Grater/Scraper/Shredder Peppyperoni 155 points ago in specializedtools

    I think I'd use it the other way. Turn it the other direction and push down in the shell. Actually, I wouldn't use it at all because I live in Canada and hat coconut.

    So the propaganda worked then. Good on them, must've been well written.

    [–] YES! Guerrilla Sewing!! Peppyperoni 3 points ago in sewing

    That's awesome! I used to carry a needle and thread for this purpose! I remember darning a seat at a Legion once. I've also repaired a bus or to myself.

    [–] Did We Underestimate Doug Ford? Peppyperoni 3 points ago in ontario

    IDK, a bourgeois NDP might be what they need.

    [–] Source: Motorola is cancelling the Moto X5, moving away from niche Mods Peppyperoni 3 points ago in Android

    make it a folio thingy

    I can't understand why they haven't made one yet. I'd buy one in a heartbeat.

    [–] 2 and a half month old tape measure just ripped in half. Not skookum Peppyperoni 1 points ago in Skookum

    You've hit on the best thing about lufkin. You get 5 for the price of a Stanley. I like this kind. I actually use the Benchmark branded ones because they're even cheaper. Same tape though.

    [–] 2 and a half month old tape measure just ripped in half. Not skookum Peppyperoni 15 points ago in Skookum

    I personally like lufkin. I don't need a 10' standout but want a 1" tape that's smaller than a grapefruit. I wish they still made the 'black max'

    [–] Trump's tariffs will hit Canada nearly five times harder than China, the apparent target Peppyperoni 2 points ago in canada

    So a lot like buying textiles in Canada now. A thousand times easier to buy from China than the US. And China tells you upfront the cost and that it'll be 6 weeks. Whereas the states says it'll be tomorrow but gets held at the border for weeks and then it comes with duty and excise added.

    [–] Top Gun 9 or Top Gun Standard material Peppyperoni 1 points ago in boating

    I make canvas. I've never heard of top gun 9. It's our policy that the labour is the biggest expense so why would you cheap out on material? TG 9 might be great but there's a reason it's cheaper. It'd suck to throw out a $1000 tarp for a $150 savings.

    Make sure you get vents in the tarp. TG is great but it doesn't breathe. If it's not vented enough it'll mould underneath.

    [–] Installation of some of the parts of a clock that's supposed to run for 10,000 years. Peppyperoni 3 points ago in Skookum

    Imma talk some shit but maybe later I'll retract or corroborate this statement.

    Cool bro. Let me know when I can call you out on being a half ass.

    [–] Fabricating a rear brake caliper bracket from 3/4" aluminum with a WOODWORKING router??? Peppyperoni 1 points ago in Skookum

    That's awesome! I have the same router table, but I have it zip tied to a milk crate. And the trigger is zip tied on so you turn it on and off with the plug. Don't do what Johnny Don't does.

    [–] It looks like a canoe Peppyperoni 2 points ago in boatbuilding

    Just bought plans for one of those myself! Can't wait!

    [–] Friend got it from an antique shop (no clue why) Peppyperoni 1 points ago in whatisthisthing

    Ya, I was meaning it was a tool for spinning akin to the relation between warping board and loom. I'm thinking it's something to measure skeins.

    [–] Sledgehammer (vs) jackhammer Peppyperoni 1 points ago in interestingasfuck

    He wouldn't have to keep up that pace. He only has to be faster than the jackhammer to 'win'. A horse can work harder than 1 horsepower buy that's the sustainable pace. Jackhammer wins until you need a hydraulic mechanic.

    [–] Sledgehammer (vs) jackhammer Peppyperoni 25 points ago in interestingasfuck

    The guy holding it does though.
