  1. Now there's a task, Drak....asking Scott if he plans anything! It's pretty much well-known that he and I are polar opposites in that department, Scott would get us to Mars within the week using whatever he could pour out of the garage. I would develop a working drawing and meticulous risk assessment after a good six months of farting around.
  2. You mean that you think some people don't have one?
  3. I think the Mac n' Cheese under reactor 4 in Chernobyl is twitching as well.
  4. "I don't know my ass from a hole in the ground" I rarely find holes in the ground farting.
  5. I prefer hook and loop myself. How does this help with dust collection?
  6. Many many years ago when MP3.com existed, I had a popular project called "The Fart Gallery". It actually paid out a few hundred dollars a month as well. Crazy. Anyway, here's a list of "tracks"....I'm sure that you can imagineer exactly how these would sound, and you'd mostly be correct. sighing cat levis yeah right earthworm pig lethal weapon bedfart bum cough postman squashed koala denial kitchen dog question disbelief explanation victorian fop cake icing subterranean mollusc another l
  7. Now, what's the payoff for most? The noise or the smell?
  8. ....or the forthcoming four day weekend? Sauna was required, definitely. Just had one of these on the balcony:4 Finnish: https://www.alko.fi/tuotteet/937836/Alvinne-Phi-Fruit-Sour-Rhubarb/ English: https://www.alko.fi/en/tuotteet/937836/Alvinne-Phi-Fruit-Sour-Rhubarb/ Wow, expensive but unbelievable. We tried the "normal" Phi a few weeks back and this is a level on top of that. Recommended!
  9. Fantastic. Watch out for idiots on the way there and for a couple of weeks afterwards. It seems that Florida is the new orange!
  10. Everything's fine this end of things, Mike. Thanks. Sun's out, beers in the freezer for a quick turnaround and sauna's ready. All good. Hope you can get your vaccine hurdle overcome. You need that stuff ASAP because corona isn't kind.
  11. That happens more often than not in these loveless jobs I think. Back when I was "in" flooring, my friend - who also was my boss as assistant manager (ass man) - used to fart over the tannoy, and see how far customers could walk into the store before he farted *loud and wet* rippers, seeing if they'd notice. Keep a straight face, etc. A uni friend's dad got sacked from (I think, management?) in British Steel Scunthorpe for farting over the plant tannoy. This is how legends are made my friend.
  12. I have terrible farts. Nina walked into the kitchen the other night and stated, "oh f*** you" and stormed off. Oops.
  13. DC is convenient, and I'm sure that the brushless aspect provides advantages. The wall provides more grunt than a battery pack though.
  14. I guess that Tuusula isn't how it used to be....likely more as a more affordable alternative to living in Helsinki itself now?
  15. The crazy rock n' roll life of Joensuu eh?
  16. I've not tried one yet, however I have access to the battery version of the Makita RP0700 at work. I've just not used it since the weight of the battery at the top is the most immediate cause for concern. Those small base routers are tippy as it stands, never mind with a huge 5,0Ah battery bolted on top! I can't compared the brushed 240V version to the brushless 18V version really, however I'd be wanting to know the "apparent HP" (this can be meaningless if you think about it) of the motor. They're trimmers when it comes down to it, so being able to work hardwood at any level is more of a frin
  17. Makes sense when you look at it from that angle. I should have bought the Hemi.
  18. The serpentine in mine concerns me since the motor is an interference type; once it runs out of sync you end up with bent stuff, requiring a rebuild. If I'm thinking right, the motor didn't used to be that way, but hey. Happy Monday everyone.
  19. I prefer to use acrylic/Plexi which is better in thicknesses of the order 6mm-10mm for sub-bases. 3-4mm as per the plates that bolt to the underside of metal castings isn't enough when you have overhangs. The few mm lost due to base thickness is worth it for the assurance of safer and more controllable work though. The two I use the most are an offset base and wider 300mm base with the router in the middle. That works double duty for thicknessing thin plates.
  20. I had both of those routers! The one thing I dislike the most about plunge routers is the high centre of gravity, and that POF1200 was pretty tippy at best. I'd recommend making a sub-base for it, even if that reduces the overall cutting depth. The POF400 was useful for small things like pickup cavities and neck pockets, but has a tiny base that makes it terrible unstable also. Sub-bases are the way to go for stability. and keeping their depth stops in good working condition is a must. FWIW, the best upgrade to that POF400 would be a palm router like a Bosch Colt, Makita RP0900 or DeWalt
  21. Good work. She's clearly a clueless mall duck rather than a consummate parent, so she clearly needs you to pick up the slack. Easier than loving goats, eh?
