Thanks @John O -#7072 I have that same style torque wrench; its a little less intuitive than the older ones
My dad has one that's literally just a needle like your speedometer
Mods, can we have a #crypto channel? I am well versed in crypto, engaged in the space since 2011 and would like to help. People have PM'd me questions and I'd like to answer questions in a public forum to help others.
Plus nocoiners would finally stop crying
the privacy coins are going to be the future along with more blockchain tech.
I don't see the value in holding the privacy coins. I would put my savings in BCH and only convert my week's spending money into privacy coin. You get all the benefits of anon transactions, plus all the benefits of price rises due to user adoption of white market currency.
If you guys want to know why I shill for Mullvad VPN just look for yourself at all the other possible VPN services https://thatoneprivacysite.net/vpn-comparison-chart/
there arent allot that are better for a fair price
Admin should probably pin this post. Behold the emergency no wine opener work around
Exhibit A and B
Where’s your swiss army pocket knife with the cork opener?
Only if the bottle is fresh. Otherwise it’ll crumble and you’ll be pouring the wine through a coffee filter to get the chunks out haha
Also can push the cork into the bottle. More effort exerted though
I should get a Swiss army knife it seems to have a good deal of utility.
Anyone know of a good deal on one? Recommendations?
I was given a swiss army knife when I was around 5, used it ever since. I use the plastic toothpick more than anything. Browse here to pick the one with the tool assortment you want, then buy on Amazon.
Scroll down to the bottom to see the oldest designs. Here’s mine:
Gonna be on this livestream soon with Byron de la Vandal and Blacke Lucca. Check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0yWXUsAc8aM
Ty for invite looking forward to meeting all of you
@PavelCristovic#3971 of course! Welcome aboard.
you can also use a shoe to open a wine bottle
i prefer multitools over swiss army knives
That looks like a good way to take a cork to the face.
Do any of you guys have experience with e-commerce, dropshipping, using Shopify storefronts to sell items? It’s piqued my interest lately
@celticflame I wanted to take this conversation out of tech, but my dad started a jewelry store after he retired. He cuts stones and makes custom jewelry, he also sells wholesale.
Where do you get your supplies?
Oh wow,i bet he does quality work too. Generally off Ebay,but i have also bought stuff at small local stores or once a year at trade shows when they have them at fairgrounds. When your able to inspect them up close at these shows,thats when you can find a lot of quality items. But sometimes there's also cheap stuff so you have to know what your looking for.
What state is he in? Does he also sell online?
I've cut obsidian stone before in class long ago,i know doctors still use it in some surgeries too. I have alot of respect for your dad cutting his own stones not easy,nor saudering custom jewelry. Good for him!
We're in KY. Yeah he sells online.
He actually goes out and mines stones across the US, he orders a lot of raw stones from ebay and other sellers in Asia and opal from Australia.
But he gets a lot of supplies from Rio Grande, and I'll have to get the names of the other places. They have loads of different materials for the type of jewelry you make.
He's a GIA gemologist/lapidary. He spends a lot of time fighting the Chinese selling glass and altered stones as authentic stones.
Ok cool thanks. I've ordered from Rio Grande before too. I'm nowhere near your dad,lol
But just trying to start something eventually. Bookmarked his page thanks!
Cool. Jewelry has some absurd markup too. What state are you in?
Diamond Pacific Tool Corp
And there's some mirco tool company he buys some of the smaller tools for wire wrapping and what not.
California, yes used to do too,been awhile And it all adds up.
Hey lads & lassies, just letting you goys know that the WorldCoinIndex took off some Korean coin exchanges from their listings, and this is causing a very huge drop in cryptocurrency value. Just a heads up.
@here you cryptogeeks ☝🏻
Thanks Anglo. Sold out btc on the high when you last mentioned that, then saw the news out of Korea the next day, bought btc low, hopefully a good strategy. Playing with peanuts anyway, but it's fun.
That's sweet, congratulations man!
I'm driving to the county right now, yelling in the car
Anyone have a good method to spot clean a jacket?
Pulled up to this new job site today, this crew rolled up behind me.
WEEZ WAZ BILDIRZ!!
All white guys, it's so nice being able to talk to everyone you're working with.
Yeah there's an i after the k instead of an a 😉
Attn: Hello, I am the editor-in-chief of the new online publication The Identitarian. This is an IE Board sponsored project. The publication needs writers, so I am appealing to IE members for their writing talents. We are looking to publish 3 - 6 articles a day. The publication really needs dedicated writers who can commit to writing articles on a weekly basis. We are going to cover current events, culture, history, philosophy, etc. This publication is going to speak for the Identitarian movement in the USA, so we need high quality writing. If you would like to be involved, send me a DM. If you have previous writing experience, please send two or three pieces.
Just got finished with building our activism workshop
I miss read that as autism workshop the first time.
I recognize those standing placards, are those the ones that say "ATL RIGHT"?
Lol yeah, that was our branding a while back before the joining of our activism with IE
Nice. I thought it was pretty clever.
@Deleted User all of you supreemacists live in your moms basements!
My favorite part of living and working in KY.
So strong, puts hair on your chest!
Not recommend for women. 😂
It was given to me from the guy I worked for today. I finished up my part of the job and stayed to help him move some timber and extra drywall. He said he has a buddy somewhere around Boston, KY who makes it.
I get homemade liquor often.
If I could ship it across state lines I'd send this to you. It's really good, and I don't drink liquor straight often.
I, myself, do. 😉
Well, actually, I'm goin' dry from now to Saint Paddy's
Well, from 2 Feb to Saint Paddy's
If anyone wants to make a lot of money, open a wedding venue
Swear by the gods you will be a millionaire.
Or a funeral parlor 😁
Went to my uncle's wake recently, the funeral parlor was nice and has been owned by the same family for 4 generations
We've hosted weddings here. 10/10
I don't understand why anyone would pay for a venue for their wedding. The church I go to doesn't charge for member weddings. I don't know if that is common but it should be.
Yeah and it doesn't really add to the moment. I would probably hire a professional photographer just because most people don't know how to get good pictures, but for the rest I would much rather have those services provided by my family or the other members of my church.
Fingers are crossed for you
@Der Seeteufel - SD if I could do it again I would hire a professional photographer
Besides that my wedding was 4k plus the rings, about 80-100 guests
First one, it must be a big deal for you.
Hey guys I got a weird question...
I really enjoy collecting scrap to recycle, but recently I came across 2- 4' long railroad tracks.
Rather than sell them for scrap, I've seen people turn them into anvils and was wondering if anyone knew a way to "put them on the market" for a blacksmith.
Maybe find a farrier or blacksmith school/shop that could send you in the right direction.
Looking for a graphic designer to morph a couple of silouhettes for me. Please DM if you can help.
do we have any riggers in here?
I'm not but I've worked with them. My uncle owns a machinery moving company. If there is anything I could help with let me know.
Here's an invite to a podcast I'll be starting in the coming weeks. It's also a place to discuss shooting and shooting sports. https://discord.gg/4tNANAr
any realtors in here?
@Goose check <#352760194775777282> or just <@&322715617138311171>
JBS might be a little out there, but here is a list of conservative-inclined companies.
@Px4stormtrooper#3883 made me think. To any of you guys who are new in the trades, getting into the trades, or even if you are just getting a little too relaxed. It's dangerous out there. This is a hard story to tell over text, but it's very important. There was a guy recently on a construction site that my company was on who was killed. Fortunately, I wasn't there. A tilt-up wall, like the one pictured, fell when the cables for the crane snapped. One guy ran across it and made it to safety, while the other guy ran away from it, and was crushed before he could make it.
The trades are very lucrative, especially for people without a college education. I hope that I'm not discouraging anyone, but just be aware that it's easy to get into accidents. Looking at you specifically, @Rogue#0890 . Stay safe, bro
bro, I could tell stories all day about people getting killed or maimed on job sites and in factories.
It can be really dangerous out there even in the best conditions.
@RevStench I heard construction has a higher mortality rate than police work. It's dangerous as hell, man.
Remember your male privilege and cede safe high paying work to women.
@Perihelion - CA safe =/= high paying. My brother is a diver, no debts in any form, is 22 and will be making 6 figures in a year or two. The higher the risk of dismemberment or death, the higher the wage
I get what you're saying, though
The other high paying work is distorting your mind with extreme autism and suffering social stigma
Lel, yeah, my mom did that. 0/10, don't recommend
@John O - Ironworkers dropped a staircase the other day (didn't secure it properly), my jman and I were on the other side of the wall. Very LOUD boom. Fun stuff. We get a bunch of safety briefings on my jobsite, for a reason.
I told you, bro
How strange is this, a casement window covering a double hung window.
They open just to open the double hung
Probably just over 100 years old
Have you seen that before? We have Victorian mansions here in Louisville and a million Sears and Roebuck catalog homes.
Not that set up, no. I've seen pocket doors abut to casement windows in some old houses, but it seems like people just added random things over generations.
Yeah, I believe that's the case too. People do/did weird things. I see interior storm windows more than I would like. They don't protect the window when they are inside.
They actually rot the window because of moisture.
I see people put plexiglass over the exterior of windows without drilling weep holes, that accelerates the rot.
So is that why you would see that setup? Just random building over time?
Yes sir. The plexiglass is because people are cheap haha
I see people wrap rotting wood in metal, just to sell the house, that's a nightmare. By the time I get to it there is usually hardly any good wood left, and a $400 project starts to turn to thousands.
Sounds like the Winchester Mystery House...
@everyone Any plumbers in here?
Only basic. What's up?
Electrical and HVAC here
Well, the pipe that drains from my washing machine basin to the sewer line is clogged - very clogged. Maybe only draining a cup a minute. I tried using this non-toxic Shaklee drain cleanser (that my mother gave me) a few times (It is a powder that you pour down the drain and activate with hot water), but it has not helped a bit. I bought a hand snake and could only get it about six feet into the pipe (about 12 feet from basin to sewer line) and I pulled up a bit of hair, but that didn't help either. My next next step is to use a heavy duty drain cleaner, but the directs warn not to use it if previous drain cleaners failed and to call a plumber. Do I really need to call a plumber or should I just try a more powerful drain cleaner?
There maybe a bend, and a secondary access point outside the house. Go there, there may be a wad of lint, or a small garment trapped in there. Pray it isn't tree roots.
It will look like a cap wit a square nub.
Well, 12 feet from the basin and floor drain is where the sewer line access is. The cover is 3 & 1/2 metal cap with a 1 & 1/2 in square nub. It was a pain to open, but I could tell by looking inside that the clog is isolated to the laundry drain. There are no issues with back ups when the toilet is flush or someone takes a shower. Now, the floor drain directly below the basin does have a 1 & 1/2 cap with a 1/2 inch square nub. Is that another access point I should try to snake?
If it's the line from the washer. Disconnect the washer and snake that.
@Freiheit - CA That's kind of what my inside sewer line access looks like. I opened it and could see no back up from it and there issues with the shower and toilet causing back ups.
This kind of what my floor drain is like
No, the issue is that it is backing up from the floor drain.
I had a basin mine drained into and it was a big sink basically, some previous tenant had removed the drain filter and lost her panties in the fucking pipe. Months to get that out.
I was able to get the snake under and past the cleaning plug, without removing the cleaning plug, but I could only get it in about 5 feet before it would not go any further. But maybe it would be easier if I removed the cleaning plug? Do you think it would be easier to force the snake through going straight through the cleaning plug rather than under it?
Yeah, that's what the cleaning plug is for isn't it?
Only removed for cleaning was my assumption.
indeed. I just took it off with the pipe wrench I used to open the sewer drain. That is the only thing that has went easy so far. I will try pushing the snake through that way. Thanks!
Oh, I am guessing you did not add those pipe panties to your collection? lol.
got some tree roots and hair. still not clear though. snaking by hand is hard work.
I got the snake 12-15 feet in. Now all I am getting is clay.
Do some laundry?..
It still drains very slow - a tiny bit faster. I am going to have a plumber come over tomorrow.
Did your pipe break?
Better call a plumber tbh
Sounds like it
That's not good. That could destroy the foundation of the house
probably 12-15 feet.
If the break is outside I believe they can dig that out and splice into the old pipe from outside. Don't quote me on that, code is different in some states. But let's get real most plumbing is common sense haha. If the pipe is still in good shape under the house.
I have had roots before and they just grinded through. Hopefully, that's all that needs to be done.
Oh ok, well hopefully that's all it is. I'd get rid of that tree. Haha
I cucked and paid a plumber to clean it with a professional snake.
Did he say you broke it?
no. he cleared it.
didn't say it was broken, but that there was a lot of hard junk in it.
cost me $100.
That's not bad at all
I'd pay that for peace of mind
Yeah I think that was totally worth it
I wonder how clay got in your pipe
Pretty fair price. Maybe some hippies with an underground pottery class were there washing their hand for years before.
Guten Tag alle.
Wie gehts dir? Alles gut?
Gutten tag comrade
@everyone Is there anyone with experience as a military contractor?
Worked for TC for a year.
@Deleted User Awesome! Do you have any advice as to how a startup might make industry connections? Thank you for your time.
The way i met mine was through some guys i met who had done a lot of contracting already. What job did you have in mind? I just did PSD and static positions. My advice would be to apply on something low level, have to get your foot in the door. The recruiters usually reply back within a day or 2 if you meet the requirements.
Ok, thank you. I'm asking for a prospect who's a tech startup looking for contracting work.
@everyone This video is a great reference! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mTFQbaT3Zc
Hey all, does anyone here work for a general construction contractor?
Damn, not quite what I'm looking for. Thanks anyway, brother
I worked for a few home buliders and 1 commercial. What's your question? @John O -
There we go. I'm working on getting a general contractor's license. Any tips? I know there's not much you can say that would be valuable to me, since every state has different requirements, etc
that was probably the biggest hurdle in louisiana
Honestly no, I wish you the best😃 I've never taken that journey, only worked for them. KY only licenses electric, plumbing and HVAC. Not my area of expertise.
But like @Goose said insurance. I did cable as a contractor and that was the biggest bump around here as well to get over.
KY doesn't have a general contractor's license?
Electrical, plumbing and HVAC licenses are required at state level, and general contractors are regulated by county. Like the guy I work for, we have a business license in each county we work in. So we pay a tax to work there. I'm sorry, I'm not familiar enough with it.
Np dude. That's weird
I got a GC license in TN @John O -#7072
@Deleted User I'm trying to get mine, too. I pretty much know what the deal is, as I already work construction. But if there's any huge insights you could give, I'd appreciate it
We don't have a hunting channel but I wanted to show these off. I shot them last year. I didn't do the taxidermy though.
A guy just severed an underground cable in his yard. @everyone if you're doing yard work, make sure to call 811 before you dig
Excuse me, 811
@John O -#7072 yeah man what state are you in now OH?
For some reason when I copy your handle with the mention option it doesn’t work
I can give you the breakdown on tests, books, LLC etc. don’t buy books. You can use mine
Yeah, sometimes the tag feature flakes out for no apparent reason
Ok, I didn't see a reply
Trying to be diligent haha
@everyone I will pay money to anyone who can make it appear like the dog in this picture is running alongside the horses in the next picture.
Just let me know how much
These may be easier to do since they're head-on
the image of the dog is a little better quality than the highwaymen, so I can try to fuzz the dog a little bit if you want it to match a little more closely
@Px4 hey that’s pretty good! Yeah if you can fuzz the dog to make it blend in better
hopefully someone else here is a little more skilled at photoshop than I am and can blend the layers a little more smoothly
