Thanks @John O -#7072 I have that same style torque wrench; its a little less intuitive than the older ones

2017-12-17 21:05:58 UTC  

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

2017-12-20 02:32:31 UTC  

the privacy coins are going to be the future along with more blockchain tech.

2017-12-20 03:08:18 UTC  

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.

Admin should probably pin this post. Behold the emergency no wine opener work around

Exhibit A and B

2017-12-23 05:27:12 UTC  

Where’s your swiss army pocket knife with the cork opener?

2017-12-23 19:15:21 UTC  

@Max White that is indeed pinnable

2017-12-23 22:42:04 UTC  

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

2017-12-23 22:42:26 UTC  

Also can push the cork into the bottle. More effort exerted though

2017-12-24 03:27:03 UTC  

I should get a Swiss army knife it seems to have a good deal of utility.

2017-12-24 03:27:23 UTC  

Anyone know of a good deal on one? Recommendations?

2017-12-24 19:51:21 UTC  

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:

you can also use a shoe to open a wine bottle

2018-01-04 20:21:59 UTC

2018-01-04 20:22:28 UTC  

i prefer multitools over swiss army knives

2018-01-04 21:00:44 UTC  

That looks like a good way to take a cork to the face.

2018-01-05 20:25:17 UTC  

Wine facial

2018-01-05 20:27:44 UTC  

haha gross

2018-01-06 19:59:07 UTC  

Do any of you guys have experience with e-commerce, dropshipping, using Shopify storefronts to sell items? It’s piqued my interest lately

2018-01-07 17:12:50 UTC  

@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?

2018-01-07 17:31:34 UTC  

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.

2018-01-07 17:32:53 UTC  

What state is he in? Does he also sell online?

2018-01-07 17:45:28 UTC  

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!

2018-01-07 17:58:13 UTC  

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.

2018-01-07 18:08:11 UTC  

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!

2018-01-07 18:30:33 UTC  

Cool. Jewelry has some absurd markup too. What state are you in?

Quality Gold
Diamond Pacific Tool Corp
And there's some mirco tool company he buys some of the smaller tools for wire wrapping and what not.

2018-01-07 18:38:40 UTC  

California, yes used to do too,been awhile And it all adds up.
