Ayo we need a channel in the #lifeskills channel for dealing with in laws
Lol aint that the truth!
@BryceB-ND mine aren’t to bad but the rest of my wife’s family are something else.
Need an invite for a member @here
We got anyone in here who knows anything about blacksmithing or horses?
I know a bit about horses
I’m a machinist. Never done smith type work.
I'm learning blacksmithing and I'm getting pretty good, but I'd like someone to bounce ideas and troubleshoot with
Specifically, I'm learning Farriery
Same as Felden - Machining, not a smith.
Once I get a better, perhaps I could take up as the Practical Skills server's resident blacksmith?
How much experience does one need in order to do that?
Get good first😂
🤔 trust me I'm trying
Haha just learn the trade, we'll accept you as a pro bro
🙏🏻 am I a pro yet?
Give it a few months😂
Maybe by Saturday haha
I give it 3 weeks
What are some good ideas for a small business that some of you may have?
Here’s a small business I just made and have already made a small profit on https://havamalheathens.com
It’s pretty hands off, but the same model could be done for other products and probably make even more money than what I’ve been making with the one above. All my sales have come from free Instagram traffic too so I haven’t invested much of anything.
So do you make any of the products or by from others and sell it?
Most the accessories I get from suppliers and sell, and most of the clothing are my own designs and then they are printed, quality tested, and shipped at the point of purchase, so there is no upfront cost on my end. It just depends which product it is. Some accessory items are using the same print method as the shirts.
That's my problem,i love to create but am bad about getting it set up on the business scale.
Small business idea: go to a franchise expo and watch a wide variety of franchisors pitch their small businesses. Consider market demand (they present their research on this), investment level, and cultural fit. Here’s one coming up: https://www.franchiseexpomidwest.com/
Going to pick up some chisels some time. Anyone have a preferred brand of tools?
Dewalt, but I’m not sure about chisels
Does anyone besides me use a oldtimey straight razor to shave I can give some pointers on how to use it and all around how maintain it and plus keep it razor sharp plus you can use the methodology for your knife hoby's
True Traditional Shave
I’ve always wanted to get one and use it. Normal shaving razors always give me bad irritation
A good old fashion Razor is the best shave you will ever get
How difficult is it to use? Is there a real danger of accidentally slashing your jugular?
Its easy but you need a steady hand and it has to be sharp like a minimal .10 micron edge
but with a Sub .10 and finer edge it will glide over your face like your not even shaving
It also gives you the knowledge of how to make any steel edge sharp like a razor 😎
Where’d you get yours?
Art of the Shave but their prices are the most expensive but their razors are the best .........I think west coast shaving has better deals but shop around
any Razor you buy must be made out of High carbon Steel or S30v stainless steel or any metal above that but those blades are rare and expensive
If you maintain your Striaght Razor it will last a Lifetime
What do you do and use to maintain it?
Lapping compound, a good metal treatment oil and a 3" by 10" piece of glass with construction paper backing
I’m going to look into this more and do some research, thanks @V.Balboa - PA!
no problem once you go Old school you will never use a Mach3/shick Virgin shaver again
If you have any more questions just shoot me a DM
I keep my beard at a 3 or 4 with a trimmer. I never do a proper clean shave, but I can get away with it as a tradesmen.
I used to use a electric trimmer but now im a Ultra-clean shave kind of guy
There's an art of shaving close to me, how much are the strait razors?
Always wanted to learn how do the trad shave
TBH get a safety razor, a Merkur, and buy blades, I recommend Feather, or if you want to go cheap, Sword I think
Straight are nice for cutting cool designs in your face and going to work covered in toilet paper balls, but not ideal.
Yeah I have a safety razor now, is there that much of a difference?
You can get a closer shave with a straight, but when it comes to time and maintenance...no thanks
I think I have this one
You can't fly with it, because fat non-whites at TSA don't read their own Director's message about blades shorter than 2 inches and they claim they have "discretion"
I dumped a box in the garbage because they're idiots.
same with my Tom's of Maine
You can fly with it and just not have a blade on it right? Or has the tsa ascended autism at this point?
but good luck finding blades when you land...
You can check it, but I NEVER check bags at airports...I don't trust the throwers.
I have a friend who works as a "ramp rat" at an airport, he and his wife both do it for the flights, and the pay is good. They educate their kids with the trips. He told me...."Never check bags ever" most of his coworkers are black, and union.
I was giving people straight razor shaves for over a year, then thought why not use one myself? It is a lot harder to shave yourself then someone else. Just have to start slow, one stroke at a time. I cut myself up good lol. Prol because I thought I could just do it. But there is a learning curve.
@V.Balboa - PA Is there some kind of starter kit? I picked up a few old straight razors. Then ran into what grains to use before using the leather strap to maintain the edge. Or maybe id I buy a brand new one, I wont need those different grain stones?
Leather strap ? .....Thats amateurs I fell for that crap when I first started but that is just for show not the professional way of doing things
@Attrition in the desert 160$ from The Art of the Shave New but shop around
@here are there any leather workers here? I have an idea for a project
Along the lines of traditional wet shaving... I highly recommend getting an open-comb safety razor if u have very thick, wiry stubble like I do... the mode I use is the muhle r41 I believe
Back in high school I REALLY wanted to learn how to shave with a straight razor, very classy and very manly I thought. Too bad I barely had any facial hair back then lol. I used disposable razors for a couple years, then bought a couple really expensive electric razors that I still use. I kind of still want to get a straight razor and learn how to use it though, if I remember correctly there were some cheaper places to get them if you shop around. I did actually buy a mug, brush, and soap, I think I only used it once or twice though lol.
I can't find an appropriate channel so I guess I'll ask here.
Does anybody know the proper way of filing a complaint with an auto manufacturer? I had an accident over the weekend and none of the airbags deployed.
Lawyer up I'd say. What do you drive?
It was a Nissan Skyline. I'd prefer to avoid relying on full legal action due to my employment and the issue of currently being out of the states.
Tfw can’t grow facial hair
@Sherlock Don't worry. Neckbeards, numales and soyboys have mostly ruined beards. I actually look better with a beard but I shave now just to continue my way out of soyness.
Can you get hair transplants for your face
But yeah at least im not a neckbeard
Wish i could have stubble though
lol get some minoxidil, or peppermint oil
Hair transplants usually come from the butt. You don't want that.
Dude are you serious lmfao
Gonna try peppermint oil
Raising testosterone levels also increases hair growth
Not a soyboy.
The alcohol content in minoxidil will torch your skin eventually
Turns it to leather
@missliterallywho Minoxidil is the active ingredient in Rogaine
And I've heard it's irritating but not that bad, it's not like you need to use it forever either @Aeyannic_Order
Well I had a bad experience using it
oh really, dang
Have you tried peppermint oil?
Seems like the best natural option
Yea it works to some extent but dries it out
To the point of irritation
I gave up, too much work and experimenting
I thought the point was irritation honestly
to increase bloodflow
for better growth
I have pretty much every indicator of normal/high testosterone except body and facial hair so im pretty sure that isnt my issue. I’m just not hairy lol
Has its pros and cons I guess
I'm much the same way, but I have something to work with on my face
Does any know how to make a PDF ?
from a document?
mac or pc?
I have a bunch of old books I would like to make into a PDF
is it text or pictures?
Both they are old fashion Pattern Maker Trade text books
text you can usually File>Save As>PDF
if not you may need to install acrobat
i'm going to have to buy a scanner as well?
Hay whats up Thomas 😃
@V.Balboa - PA you mean you have physical books and want to make them into PDFs? You need a special book scanner for that, they run a few hundred dollars, or you could find a print shop to do it but they might be hesitant if the book is copyrighted (or they might not idk).
well this is gonna be fun
@everyone If anybody is a CDL driver near South Jersey who likes long trips, DM me.
@Deleted User I just watched that entire video thinking it was you doing it. Nonetheless, it was quite entertaining.
Whoops nah haha, it's a tutorial I'll be following roughly. I could watch those kind of videos forever though
Yeah, same here. I wondered how he was going to get the grip rounded after he glued the pieces together. It was a great video.
After some searching, I can't seem to identify what model this knife is
Some are very similar, but none fit the bill
Do we have a music channel in here?
There's a whole music server, if it's still up. I could be wrong but I don't believe it's exclusively IE.
Anyone into SCUBA here?
I’m certified but haven’t dove in a few years.
I did it a looong time ago, but basically no.
Dam I love diving Haven't gone in a long time
Dove some wrecks in GA and a ton in the FL keys
Go to a tropical area. Visibility is unreal compared to lakes or rivers in south. Or even the coast. I’m sure the Keys are pretty awesome. I’ve dove in Australia and Belize. I want to do some ancient sunken sites. Megalithic in nature.
I Dove Belize too @The Huwhyte Ulf - VA it was unbelievable
Best dives of my life hands down
Did a night dive there that blew my mind flaming scallops everywhere
Saw some bioluminescent squid too
I didnt get to go at night. I really would like to see some bioluminescent organisms. I really want to get back into it but my wife doesnt enjoy it as much as I do.
If the pommel is aluminum there is an off chance it could be an ancient Ruana from Montana.
I mean, it says kabar on it
But I can't find the model.
Actually, too big to be Finn
May be marine hunter
yeah marine hunter looks very similar, but there are differences
I'll ask some knife dudes.

@Deleted User Make sure IE Leadership knows about that. We could almost definitely make use of your skills.
Hey guys. I’m applying for a UX bootcamp! Onward and upward. New Right tech here I come.
Does anyone in IE do book digitization as a side business @ThisIsChris @everyone
i have some books that i would like to be turned into PFD's
@ThisIsChris We should create a role for people who are good at writing
That way if we want to practice our rhetoric, we can tag someone who knows their stuff
How about <@&387091385075105804>?
That could work
How do people acquire roles?
know something about something
Anyone here know anything about repairing roof leaks? It's raining hard where I live and rain is leaking through roof by the chimney.
Do you have access to your attic? Hard to do anything while things are wet. Is your roof metal or asphalt shingles?
Lay tarps over roof, stagger from bottom to top
They make a roof patch product that you can buy at Lowe’s
There’s a whole assortment of different products there
I’m sure Home Depot and Menards have the same stuff or something similar if they are closer to you as well
Hey everybody. Just wanted to notify everyone of my services, which consist of : proofreading /editing, social media marketing, and bookkeeping. I'm also potentially looking for a graphic designer.
Also, shouldn't it be McGOYver?
@cyrustheaverage it was but we're moving away from the edge-posting
I'm going to be buying a Book digitizer soon if anyone has any books that they want to be turned into PFDs when i get it just DM me @everyone
My university actually has an okay one. I can't promise it works very well, but you might could find one at a uni near you. Mine doesn't charge me anything and I just have to carry a flash drive with me. It makes searchable PDGs.
hmmm ill check out my local uni than
Looks like Penn state uses the same one my university does. I worked on a book for my pretty well.
this is my Harley
And these are the pictures of the custom Carbon fiber parts that I made ......Gas tank ,oil tank, fenders etc
I've been wanting to find other IE guys who ride..
please remove me from this server as well. According to leadership I am "unhinged" don't want my passionate nature to spread
fucking group is a joke
patrick casey is boring
Am i out yet
fireside chats should be for everyone
How odd. He posted his youtube video and I just commented on how his Polish and Gadsden flag needed ironing. And someone else said he was yelling and now he's melting down?
At least he left easy and quick, instead of really causing trouble
Just saw the video. He seems like he's on the spectrum, in all seriousness. He was borderline shouting like an angry robot. Its okay to have passion and all, but you have to be able to direct and present it. Geez he even uploaded an 'IE version' of the video he showed in chat earlier that wasnt any more redeeming either.
Am I allowed to post it in the public chat here? Sorry Im still getting accustomed to the OpSec. type boundaries between various channels/servers.
I clicked it, feel free to dlt
Ah we're good, verified with Will.
