Why do I get the uneasy feeling of the calm before the storm during this debate with Ian?

I keep thinking "What have you saved to unleash on me in your final post?"

Just all the things you fear, 44, just all the things you fear.

PS: That wasn't intentional, last night, posting 1 minute after you logged off. It was slightly amusing though, in retrospect.

morning guys

anybody for coffee?

close to the weekend

ian did you pack already everything for your road trip? or are you a last minute packer?

Ah, coffee. Thanks orange. Nope, I have not yet begin to pack. It doesn't take me long, usually, but I am a procrastinator when I can be.

Actually my apartment is a bit of a mess too, but I don't think Sdog and Mem will really care. I don't exactly see much Martha Stewart in them.

I knew there was a reason for the showy, extravagant sentences.

so we have to remind him to take his apron with him

OHHHH how i missed that

no problem
i can.t speak of the whole bunch of the female fighters but i bet some of us girls are willing to help to figure out for you which t-shirts match with which jeans …… or does procrastinate in your case mean something different

usually girls can.t decide what to take with them and end up with 3 suitcases where you need 1

i guess you don.t want to stay for 10 days in your apparmtent

[heike hide]now some breakfast:

I'm more thinking things like paying rent before I go out of town, etc. As for jeans and shirts, it's pretty simple. The blue ones match with the shirt things, right? And shoes. One should wear shoes, I've found.

Sorry, orange, but we're going to have to redact that poppy-seed donut. New forum policy. I will take one of the chocolate sprinkle ones, though.

NOT sandals - definitely not sandals.

Nothing worse than a bloke who wears sandals with white socks...

Buy yourself a nice pair of combats linky any colour as long as it's not any form of DPM.

They go pretty well with anything and are very comfy

I have 3 pairs

oooh and a nice pair of walking shoes, like karrimors

Combined with a good top (shirts are for old guys) they'll have you looking good in no time.

My god, how girly do I sound

edit to add - love the way those combats go up to a 52" waist

I second Bud's suggestion of combats... very comfortable, durable etc.

And get a Jim Marrs-esque hat while you're at it!

Can't argue with the man's style.

(got my reply up btw)

Morning everyone.

Looks like today will be a bit lighter as I don't yet have to prepare a closing for my debate.

How is everyone else doing?

i see you keep it simple dear

blue and black jeans usually match with any kind of shirt!
yup wearing shoes might help on stony grounds and other floors so i would advice to wear one pair and take an aditional pair with you

paying rent?
don.t you do that at the beginning of the month?
don.t you got a standing order on your bank account? or don.t your land lord got a direct debit authorization?

strange! those are the latter problems and worries i would have

honey, tehre are no poppy-seed donuts in that box, the one which looks like is actually sprinkled with very very fine chocolate chips
but better eat it! or shall i btter eat it? *pondering about the yummie donut*

who is thinking about sandals Yicht
sneakers wonderful sneakers

you can top that sandals-white-socks-wearing guy by letting him wear shorts

*going to bathroom*

budski do you mind coming with me on a good shoping spree? i need tops, shoes, and new glasses

i guess we are finished packing ian.s bags?
what about mem's?

morning nyk
we are packing ian.s bag
a bit up this page you.ll find coffee and donuts!

I am sure you all will remember the blood clot I had last week, same day. Well, today morning the skin healed and peeled off. And now, as I had workshop today, once again, the same finger, same spot, same clot.

Some things never change!

Btw, time is surely flying!

You cut your finger again with a hacksaw, just like last time, in the same place??

Hmm... no comment, other than: let the tool do the work, don't try to rush it.

reply to post by Ian McLean

No, No, I held the hacksaw so tight that blood clotted in my finger last week, and once again, today, the same process is repeating. Another injury in my left hand is another story altogether.

reply to post by peacejet

Oh okay. Whew, I'm not so worried about your luck now. The same advice applies, though - working a hacksaw too hard just dulls the blade. There's an optimal pressure and speed to use, depending on the type of metal. You can feel it from the vibrations that are transmitted back through the handle. Think of it like sculpting clay, just with different material properties. It's the same thing when filing, sanding, etc. There's a definite 'feel' for it. Don't just hold on as tight as you can, that's counter-productive.

Gee, I'm in a pedantic advice-giving mood this morning.

The good thing is that, today was the last experiment of the fitting working, using the hacksaw, the next is sheet metal. Will the hack saw be used there too?

The material is medium carbon steel. I use a lot of pressure, so that I can cut fast and finish soon.

Mate why are you cutting carbon steel with a hacksaw? I know zilch about "shop", but I'm an engineer by profession... I would have thought that carbon steel is far too tough to cut with a hacksaw- its designed to resist that kind of thing. Try a band saw instead?

posted on Mar, 13 2009 @ 09:15 AM
reply to post by 44soulslayer

It is medium carbon steel, and it was not that hard, I didnt have any difficulties in cutting through it.

Btw, what is your specialization?

posted on Mar, 13 2009 @ 09:22 AM
reply to post by peacejet

Thats strange, maybe I'm mistaken... always thought that any carbon content above 0.2% makes steel exceptionally hard.

Specialised in bioengineering- probably why I'm not so hot on steel etc

Give me a good lump of polymer and I'll grow you a new organ though
