So other than the standard xacto blade, are any of these other ones useful? or just gimmicks?

>> No.1595645

i dabble in Custom figures, and find a use for each. the first and 6th make good scalpels if you need smooth cuts.2, 3 and 5 are good for cleaving on straight guillotine style cuts. the standard acute triangle blade is good for angular cuts. never found a good use for the last 2 though. 9 is just an inverse 1 and 6, so i guess long straight flat cuts. 10 is for precision cuts, but its like using a scalpel to skin a buck. you could do it, but muliple tools in the kit will do a much more effective job. its the manlet of Xacto

>> No.1595646

I have a set of these that i use for building/prepping my wh40k models. The thin handle one with a normal blade is good for most things. curved blade for more robust cuts. for thick material they you have to chop at or cut hard i like the red handle with a the flat bade, 3rd from the left. other than that, there isnt much differentiation in the blades. maybe for different clearances, but like i said, it mostly comes down to material hardness and detail.

>> No.1595680

I had that set once upon a time, except the fat handle was pure aluminum without the plastic. They are perfectly useful and the various blades are quite useful for many carving tasks, but they are just easy money and exploiting people fear of sharpening. Buy the kit, it you use it regularly, get proper carving chisels and learn to sharpen them, you will save money in the long run and have a wider selection of blades to choose from.

Okay I figure there isn't an existing thread I'd be better posting this in. Just stripped the polyurethane down off this Japanese Oak tabletop and sanded it to a smooth 800 grit. Probably overkill and might need to sand it back to something coarser, but at least it feels nice. So I'm wanting to lay down a new finish on it and I'm getting conflicting information online; some recommend tung oil, others recommend polyurethane. I was wanting a durable finish and I assume tung oil wouldn't provide the kind of hard surface layer that you get from PU, but it was highly recommended by the guy at the hardware store as he used it on his table.

Can post more pictures of the tabletop if you want to have a good look, but it is a little pock-marked from decades of use. The original tabletop was Kauri, but it was real marked up since it's a soft wood and was removed perhaps 60 years ago. Damn photo better not be sideways.

TL;DR: what finish do I use on my japanese oak tabletop? I don't live in the states so some of your brands might not be available, but general recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

>> No.1595608

Poly would be better, especially if your putting a coffee mug or a cold drink. Tung oil won't offer the ease of mind that poly would and poly will still show the wood off without it looking like plastic (like a laq would)

>> No.1595616

Sounds reasonable. I've heard of putting oil down to make the wood shine, and covering it with an oil-based polyurethane, ever come across that?

i've never created a sewing pattern before but im trying to create a cosplay of ghiaccio from jjba. i made this on illustrator and can have it printed in actual size on paper at my job. I would like some feedback on if this looks usable or not.

>> No.1595586

Pattern making for clothing has some little idiosyncrasies that you need to learn for well fitting articles.

Go into the fabric stores and browse the catalogue. Find something similar in general fit and function as what you want to make.

Don't cut up the pattern you bought. Trace that onto vellum or newspaper, or something else and cut that out. That way you can re-use the pattern over and over for multiple sizes if you make something for someone else.

Pay attention to where the darts are, and where things are taken in. Getting familiar with these will make creating your own patterns easier.

I should have known to look closer at the notes.
Note 25, the Phosphor Handbook, seems to have all the info I need.
At a quick glance, it looks like I need about 0.01% to 0.005% copper by weight for P31.
That seems to agree with the vague statement of "A few PPM" on wikipedia.

Next stop: Finding ZnS, Copper, and Silver powder at a price lower than just buying P31 from Sigma-Aldrich.
The ZnS is cheap enough, but the silver powder looks like it's a bit pricey.

i get pretty good results with a hammer and a vice. Weld the seam and then keep beating it.

>> No.1595494

just keep working it with your hands and it will be close. That flat spot where the bolts are and you have double-thickness is going to give you trouble, you probably have to take it apart and get both sides started with pliers or a vise or some boards clamped like a brake, but you run into the same issue with rolling like >>1595299. The workpiece leaves the roll in the last half inch or so and you end up with a little straight piece. If it needs to be perfect, roll it with extra on both ends and cut off the excess, then butt weld and grind off the excess, it's how ERW tubing is made.

>> No.1595699


Get rid of the bolts. Cut the thing in half lengthwise, then flatten it and weld the sides together. After that attach a hose fitting and pump high pressure water to inflate the tube. Cut off the ends and clean up when done.

Non-contact capacitive sensors work well for detecting water. For example, mounting some electrodes (copper tape) on the outside of a plant pot will readily detect the water content inside

As a project to make things more beautiful I have decided to breed local butterflies.

The reason for this is yesterday while I was planting strawberries, a large peacock butterfly came and landed on the patch and sat with me for a good 30 minutes, only to move to a window and sit for most of the afternoon.

It was a very spiritual experience and prompted me to firstly discover it's type, which I have not had the pleasure of seeing before - but also the desire to breed them for release.

The larvae are relatively cheap and these particular butterflies thrive on stinging nettles. Some varieties of the exotic prefer rotten fruit and citrus - however these will bring havok to the locality so can't be released.

A few monarchs have found there way across the ocean but we don't produce milkweed here.
