    It's My Birthday!

    Time is arbitrary, and out of my control, but I feel like I'm 18 again but with a better head on my shoulders. A couple of Beers were in oder for the occasion, and I remembered how much I like this song and how it represents my feelings toward life right now, and figured that this is the only...

    I've been lurking around here lately to get a read on the enthusiasm, and it looks like Model rocketry is here to stay! I have not had much time for it, but it applies to every single thing I do in other disciplines, and enhances the end result exponentially. This has to be the best forum ever...

    Can't Upload Pics'???

    When I select "go advanced", and try to upload pic's, it says upload failed. Likewise, I tried to change my Avatar and even with a resized to smaller pic' it said upload failed. Is this a problem on my end or are others having an issue?

    Is There A Machine Making/Cobbling Forum Anywhere?

    I'm not talking about plastic 3d printed machines, or modern tight tolerance super precise machines, but rather things cobbled together using shafts, pulleys, bearings, pillow blocks, good old iron and steel and the like. I'm registered at oldwoodworkingmachines.org, and have been pretty active...

    Cool Bandsaw Video

    The older, larger bandsaws are really neat. This guy makes a babbit bearing for his, and I hardly know what one of those is, but am trying to get up to speed, which keeps leading me to cool videos, though sadly not much actual pertinent data on the saw I'm working on. I have finally figured...

    A Most Beautiful Knife Sharpening Jig

    :eyepop: The sharpening jig in this video is pretty impressive. It puts my Lansky and similar systems to shame. I have no machine shop, but what I do have are various items that have been scavenged from things like TV satellite dishes and parts from miscellaneous broken tools that I find on...

    The Spring And Ball In The Hot Glue Gun

    This guy can't figure out what the spring and ball are for, but it's still a good idea he came up with. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T6FOlVmOk2A

    Why Is Everything Wrong With Bathroom Construction.

    I'm not going to argue about it, I'm already going my own route anyhow with my bathroom remodel, but what I fail to understand is whay all the available pieces parts are made of garbage like Porcelain and Concrete? I had to insulate the tank of the toilet to make it not sweat, which was okay by...

    Charlie Chaplin

    This guy! :lol: If I ever get my hands on the Tardis, I'm definitely going to go visit this cool cat! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_UopgPw_BPU Making up a bunch of nonsensical lyrics and doing some moves. He was there before talkies too, and my Grandparents remembered him fondly. My Mom...

    Wow! Inside The Magic Dragon!

    I never gave much thought about the effort these folks put into it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOe-TEJlV4E :clap: That sure doesn't look as easy as it looks like it is from the ground! And this is a public video, meaning it is probably not entirely realistic anyhow, but an...

    More CA Insanity About To Occur.

    It seems that it is the case that baking soda creates an very hard and tolerant material when it is hit with thin CA. I will research this in as far as it can be applied to rocketry applications, and report back on my findings. I'm thinking precision fitting of stuff like CRs and possibly...

    Looks Like We Make Cheesy Concept SIM Videos Now Too.

    Much cheaper that actually building and deploying it, and it does have a "Fear Factor" rating of maybe 7-8 on a scale of one to ten. Atleast the Communist videos feature a much better soundtrack, and the items listed are for sale. I think this is just some pretty poor propaganda, and since when...

    Funny DEVO Video

    I always like DEVO, but never really went searching for their videos other than Whip It. This one is pretty cool, and fellow generation 80's folks will like it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVGINIsLnqU&index=5&list=RDMMQpoqzt2EHaA

    What Happened To Youtube?

    The Videos I could watch there now play audio, but have no video. Did Video finally kill the Radio Star? Did it take that long, and is this the consequence? I just want to watch Mazzy Star and Tori Amos, and they are both great music wise, but better with video. My Iron Maiden Videos don't...
