    [–] Who would make something like this and then who the heck would buy it??... Peppyperoni 1 points ago in WTF

    Seems like it's porcelain which means there was a mold. Which means they had the opportunity to turn back many many times. It also means there are very many of these.

    That's awesome. I had a similar experience in ceramics class. I threw balls of clay at the floor and found they looked like cow patties. So I made a shit pot.

    [–] How you know you’re not a perfectionist (and your 1/4” seam allowance needs some work) Peppyperoni 1 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago) in sewing

    I'd wonder if your cutting was accurate. If it is I wonder if your two layers are sewing together even. The top layer can gather at a different rate than your bottom layer (especially on the bias) leading to one side being long/short. You can dink around with tension, stitch length, needle bar pressure*, +w/ev' and get a happier result.

    You can also nick the middle of your seam on each piece to make another reference mark. As you sew you may need to pull one layer more than the other, especially if they're different fabrics.

    Tl;Dr- we won't know it's your seam allowance until you show us the backside

    *oops, meant foot pressure

    I wish someone would make a wallet case that attaches with the mod magnets.

    Styrofoam melts. But I've seen many a jerry can with a plastic bag in the lid because the washer got lost. I've only really ever seen the printing melt off. The bags are usually fine. Never seen one that could hold water very well.

    Being in the textile trade I hear you loud and clear. If you can't find a Canadian supplier it might as well not exist. Well, there's China as long as you need 50,000 yards of whatever.

    I've never used it and don't know a lot about it, but from what I've heard, yes sappy wood can trigger it. A guy above said it's similar to a touch screen on a phone. And many things can work a touch screen. I imagine they have it dialed in but I'm sure there's many possibilities for false positives.

    Indeed. Hate the game not the player. The guy I heard talking about it was mad that it was a scientific principle that the patent was based on. I really don't know much about it.

    A good blade can be $80+. So it'd be close to a $200 oopsie. The bummer is it can get triggered by damp wood too.

    I also heard they sued another company (Bosch?) because they came up with a similar thing but using compressed gas to lower the saw quickly but was triggered with the same type thing.

    [–] How a sewing machine works Peppyperoni 6 points ago in interestingasfuck

    The crazy thing is this only a tiny bit of a sewing machine. When you start looking at the feed dogs and all the stuff that happens up top it gets really complicated.

    [–] "Farm Duty" vs. "Compressor Duty" -- Is one Skookumer? Peppyperoni 4 points ago in Skookum

    Knowing farmers, I always think 'farm duty' means it was partly cobbled from welded together cutlery or whatever else was convenient.

    [–] People who cannot afford to keep their home adequately warm, 2016 [OC] Peppyperoni 215 points ago in dataisbeautiful

    I'd guess the northern houses are built to conserve heat. It may be colder but the houses are easier to heat. Southern houses likely don't have 2' of insulation in their attic for instance.

    It's an 'Opa!' machine.

    [–] Fabric width question! Peppyperoni 1 points ago in sewing

    Upholstery fabrics are almost always 54". 60" is a common size for tarp fabric.
