Message from Tyler TX in Front And Center #nirlv_general
@everyone **NEW GENERAL**
I just finished my second round of putting up flyers. I went to the mall again and put about a dozen up, a quick in and out op. I also plastered one entrance to a subdivision (forgot to take pics on this one) and finished at another park. I was thinking that next time I'll go to a large local chruch while everyone is in service and put flyers under everyone's windshield wipers. I like that approach because people can't walk past it like they do when I post on lightposts and signs.
Y'all can now see the regular <#364051970409103362> channel.
Good content, right there.
@here How is everyone doing?
@Thomas Ryan rather annoyed drove into town to poster and couldnt so went to lowes to buy some supplies i needed and they didnt have them. Wasted e hours i could have spent doing anything else. How are you?
Man, that's annoying. How many hours?
What supplies were you looking for?
@Thomas Ryan 3 hours. Was looking for high heat resistant brick the temporary forage i had failed so i want to make a permenant one. Wanted it to look nice aswell but i guess ill have to just go and get a charcoal grill itll handle the heat but wont look good. Havent been able to cast aluminum or smith anything in 2 months which is lame because it a enjoyable hobby of mine
@Thomas Ryan plus im haveing to run the back up generator today because there was no sun yesterday or today which is annoying even if it only takes a few hours to fill my batteries
What types of things do you make out of aluminium?
@Thomas Ryan you can make just about anything. Aluminium is something ive only recently gotten into. I melt down cans so recycleing which is good just scoop out the slag and with enough cans eventually you have good pure aluminium. If you can build a desired mold you can cast it. Tools knives axes small parts etc. But with the forge down i cant cast and i cant smith steel either.
@Thomas Ryan aluminium is easy to work with because its melt temprature isnt very hard to achieve just a simple cjarcoal fire with a blower and you can get hot enough
Heres a scrap ingot i got for a future project its about 3inches wide by 8 long by 1.5 thick
If i felt like it i could make a lower receiver for dat 👻 🔫 the lefts always talking about lol
Other hobbies include brewing mead which is a type of wine made from honey
@hyena that's awesome man. I saw a guy make an AR lower out of aluminum cans on youtube. Mead is delicious
@Tyler TX i totally agree its a shame you cant get it in most liqueor stores at least ive never seen it. Only ever been able to buy mead at renisance fairs thats why i started makeing my own
@Chris GA ya, im hooked up to city water but my house is also surrounded by a creek so if i wanted to i could get off it. Other than that i generate my own power and i have a garden its only supplimental at this point but eventually the goals to produce all i consume
Nice. I would like to get to that point sometime. Probably get a place by a large river or creek to be able to make a hydroelectric generator. Solar seems like too much 💵 💵 💵
@Thomas Ryan I'm doing well, I'm just pretty much tied down during the week days because I work all day.
What about you?
@hyena If you're looking for fire bricks you can reuse bricks from very old buildings if you have any demo-ed in your area http://www.traditionaloven.com/articles/95/old-red-clay-solids-as-firebrick-alternative
@Chris GA solar really isnt that expensive my whole system panels batteries charge controller and inverter only coast about 3k and its enough power for me but im one dude
Only 3k?? that's not bad at all
Yup its much more dooable than people think
@everyone Chime in, everyone. How are things? Who can I expect at the NNM meeting?
@Thomas Ryan im well. I wont know about my meeting avalability till thursday however
No worries, as long as folks keep others posted, being unavailable at times is expected and fine.
I’ll be there
He’s coming by tomorrow to figure it out
He’s having problems with Apple ID I think
