  1. Maybe they chose the best two sections out of four!
  2. No integrated ash tray? I presume that’s what the test item was?
  3. Nice! So, you mean you started with a F360 model and did everything within their ecosystem, or a combination of tools?
  4. Awesome! I have been working on building a trailer. Lots of fun, welding, grinding (but not so much fun painting - weather isn’t helping) and getting close to my deadline on Wed with the police to get an inspection and a VIN number for it. Then I need to get the mast cradle built. It’s going to look something like this but perhaps with a u-shaped liner out of hdpe plastic. Any other ideas?

    When all you have is a RSA Predator?
  6. Some super cool engineering going on here https://youtu.be/HR5oCVDta-w?t=462
  7. Isn’t there an all black version?
  8. Yeah, starting to get a feel for how much storage I would reasonably need for 4K or if it’s even worth it. Just using the Cloud Key thingy with 1TB for now.
  9. I think it’s a nice clean install as well! This stuff is impressively hard. I think the countersink is the way to go..
  10. .. because someone literally stole a car out of my driveway. Unfortunately for them, it had a tracker on it and we recovered it (the thief wasn’t inside) and now it’s the scene of a investigation of some sorts at an impound yard.
  11. That detail was only in the part you had to read. I just looked at the pictures and gave my own opinion - is that what the kids do these days?
  12. Nice! Would some small adhesive Teflon tape or something on the bottom help the drawers slide in easier? It seems if you apply the pull or push force on the end of the drawer it might bind up?
  13. “The ass end of this boat is so big” 😅
  14. That’s awesome! We ended up getting stuck out on the cat today. We were in a spot of the lake where it was too narrow to tack effectively (the cat just doesn’t have the upwind performance of a monohull) and gain ground upwind.. the wind was about 10 mph straight down the middle with cliffs on each side. We got rescued by a more experienced sailor on a small john boat who said we were doomed to never get back up the lake. Heh.
  15. At that point probably just best to use a hex head bolt and counter sink it…
  16. Would the countersink diameter be say 3/8” - just enough to be able to get the bulk of the the square piece in? Yeah, I just need probably 4 or 5 holes.
  17. I am working on my sailboat motor attachment and am using some 5/16” carriage bolts in the end of the transom so the heads are flush. The material will be something called Starboard, which is a marine HDPE plastic. It will be two 3/4” sheets put together. I am wondering how much material I need to make sure the square part of the bolts catch in the material? Should I just drill 5/16” or go 3/8”? The square part is .32” * .32” so the long diagonal of the square is .45”.
  18. Here are the feet - there isn’t enough travel in them I think. I probably need another solution than the motor mount (male stud, rubber, male stud - which goes into the aluminum line footer and the shiny round circle thing on the top) idea which is stock for these VPI tables. There is a slight gap on purpose to suspect the table so it’s just decoupled via the rubber… the wood is just attached via glue dots to the underside of the plinth to hide the motor mounts.
  19. I am working on adding some walnut footers, which I almost assuredly mis-measured.
  20. Probably wing pins for kids first flight.
  21. I have a defective driver IMG_2569.MOV
