A bit expensive for my taste, but then again if you're really mad you might just splurge on this outrageous prank prop and irresponsibly take away part of your carefully made budget.

u/mar_darling · 101 pointsr/IAmA

for the record, they do make self-adhesive googly eyes haha, then you don't need the double sided tape! we keep a stash at my work for general fun and merriment lol.

u/Pax_et_Bonum · 54 pointsr/Catholicism

100 sheets of gold leaf measuring 1.7" by 1.7", totalling 289 square inches, cost $12.55, with free two-day shipping. I'm sure actual artists can get better deals on bulk quantities. Gold leaf isn't actually all that expensive since it's only like an atom thick.

u/Scizmz · 34 pointsr/tifu

No way in hell. There's bamboozling there. real gold leaf sheets that size cost WAY less than 5k... you can't tell me the paint and labor is "THAT" special.

A lot of things can go badly wrong with even basic bondage. For that reason, I really don't recommend learning it by trying it for yourself. The best way to learn bondage is to have it taught to you in person.

The good news is, bondage people are very open and usually offer workshops in any big city. If you go to one, expect to walk into a room full of people who you are in no way sexually attracted to, including some that are slightly sexually repulsive to you. But stay anyway. Keep your clothes on. Listen and learn.

In addition to safety, a workshop will teach you a few really fun knots, tell you the best kinds of rope and where to buy it, how to clean things afterwards, and all sorts of other useful tips.

If you ignore that advice-- which is really the best advice-- here are a few things to watch out for. It's three tips that will prevent you from injuring somebody.

  1. Cutting off circulation. Wrists are surprisingly easy to fuck up badly in a short amount of time. Fucked up wrists don't always hurt while they are getting damaged.

  2. Subs passing out. I have witnessed a healthy man tied up as a demo, just standing there, suddenly go weak and topple over. Fortunately, a bunch of us were standing around watching and kept him from hitting the ground. He came around and was fine. I've also had a young guy tied up as my sub when-- again, for no apparent reason-- he started to go into light shock... shivering and going weak. Again, I got him out of rope and as soon as he warmed up, he was fine. Something about even light bondage fucks with some people in significant ways.

  3. Obviously, don't get a rope near the side or front of the neck. It can put pressure on the carotid arteries.

    With respect to number one, beginners should not use rope on hands or wrists. Go to Mr. S. (reputable shop) and get a set of nice basic padded wrist restraints. They have tie-points on the outside of the restraint. A lot of beginners seem to think that restraints are for the hard-core people. But the reality is just the opposite: restraints are there for beginners to not fuck up.

    With respect to number two, never leave anyone tied up alone. Always be prepared with a set of EMT scissors. Note that these are sharp enough to cut rope, but the points are blunted so you can stick them between the rope and skin (eg: neck) without cutting. It's to get somebody out of rope if they pass out or if your knots go wrong and start to self-tighten.

    Always have an escape plan: for example, never clip a wrist restraint to a metal chain: tie it with rope instead so you can cut it if the sub passes out suddenly.

    Don't leave arms tied elevated for a long period in an early session. It causes a lot of stress to the body. Try it for ten minutes the first time, and if that goes well, try it for 20 minutes.

    Start slow. Try something briefly. see how the sub feels the next day. Try it again longer/harder if it works. Know what a safeword is. Don't jump right into rape play. Don't jump right into gags.

    That's sorta the first 10 minutes of a bondage talk. But really, go to one and get it for real.

If you want to be REALLY evil, buy these the next time you fly and put a few of them up around the airport.

Better yet, if you're flying with one or more other people, give each person a few of them and have a contest to see whose stickers (the ones that each person places) can trick the most people.

Get yourself some Scotty Peelers. The plastic ones are pretty safe for surfaces.

These work pretty well too, and your money might go farther

Ok. Did some reading.

I'm not going to sugar coat this because well, I don't believe in that.

Welcome to the dark side. We have goldfish crackers. (BTW my roommate was an aide for 20 years and said that they are convenient because if they are attacking you, you can throw them at them and it will distract them for a while.) Invest in goldfish crackers and fruit loops. They make good rewards.

Buy this book. I really wish someone had recommended me that book before I stepped into an autism classroom. I reread it now every once in a while and still learn new things.

Start here. Go through the rest of her blog. Subscribe to it. She runs an excellent easy to understand blog.

Visuals are insanely important. Subscribe to LessonPix. Your school may have Board Maker, but I find it very difficult to use. Plus, LessonPix is online based so you can create something at home and then access it at school or vice versa. It is like $36 a year, which is insanely cheap. For my visuals, I usually put a picture with the word on the bottom.

You will need velcro. Do not buy it from a store. This is a wholesale place online. They have the cheapest velcro out there. I buy coins so I don't have to cut it, it makes it a lot easier. If you are going to cut velcro, get titanium scissors. They will not gum up when cutting velcro. Have a system with your velcro so you don't have random patterns of velcro. I usually do soft on a surface and rough on anything that travels.

You are going to need a personal laminator. My binding has the cheapest 5 mil laminating sheets out there. Use 5 mil for anything that travels and if its going to stay on a wall, use 3 mil. 3 mil or 1 mil (what the school laminating machine uses) tears easily and doesn't last. Once you create something, you don't want to lose it. Most any laminator will do. I like the Fellowes brand. This is a very good one. That my binding website has some awesome deals on laminators. Whatever you get, just make sure it doesn't need a carrier sleeve to laminate because those are annoying. Just make sure that if you from 5 mil to 3 mil you switch the laminator over to 3 mil and let it cool or there will be a burning smell. To save time I bought one of these. Just makes cutting faster.

Don't overspend on stuff for the classroom. Look at oriental trading post. You can find a lot of stuff there. Sign up for the newsletter and wait from a free shipping coupon, don't pay for shipping.

Get yourself a couple pairs of these. I like the 18 inch ones. Make sure your tetnus shot is up to date.

You probably need to brush up on your evidence based practices for autism too.

I know this is a lot of information. But these are all things I wish people would have told me before I started teaching this level of autism kiddos. I went into it blind. I've had to put all this together through reading, training, and observation. Its easier just to be front loaded with the information.

My first year teaching, I was put in a K-1 mod/severe autism class (your setting 3). It was the first autism specific class at the school. Nobody gave me any support. I had no idea what I was doing. I had very little formal training on autism specific teaching. It was like being sucked into a vortex in deep water with nobody around to help me. I didn't even know where to go for information. That's why I try to help people and be completely honest. I'm not trying to overwhelm you.

If you need help and support, let me know. My MA.Ed is in Special Ed with a specialty in Autism Spectrum Disorder. I am teaching a class similar to yours at an elementary school level next year. I'm really good at dealing with behaviors and data too.

u/piskorick · 11 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

They sell precut mini mirrors if you have a square shape, but I couldn't find any in the size I needed.

I bought these:

They work pretty well as long as you apply it perfectly flat. Otherwise you get sort of a fun house mirror effect.

u/Tantric989 · 10 pointsr/BuyItForLife

This reminds me, I need to go figure out what scissors they gave me at work because as a lefty it's one that works fantastic, and that's probably one of the worst things you have to deal with as a lefty. More than half the scissors on the planet are totally useless for left-handed people. Especially the ones in grade school that would just crease paper if you used them in your left hand.

edit: Someone actually linked them lower in the comments. These are beautiful.

u/ivovic · 10 pointsr/Damnthatsinteresting

Not much. There's barely any gold there. Small sheets like that are about $12 for 100

As with many such luxury items, it's all for show, and there's no real value in there.

Take the glass out and use the sticker mirrors. You could also apply right over top if you want it done faster:

Not OP, but the easiest way to cut glass bottles like this is with a glass bottle cutter like this or this.

I've been cutting bottles like this to make wine bottle candles for my centerpieces and my favors!

u/gnib · 7 pointsr/CampingandHiking

I used Tenacious Tape on a down jacket and its held up great.

u/FriskyMinx · 6 pointsr/AskRedditAfterDark

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Knotty Boys yet, they have a lot of good tutorials.

Also: If you are going to try rope bondage, please have EMT shears on hand. You can get them for $4 on Amazon. These are designed to cut material off of a person without harming their skin; it is not safe to use regular scissors or a knife to cut rope off of someone in an emergency.

u/SpikedJester · 6 pointsr/Ultralight

Tenacious Tape.

This stuff is just shy of magic. I repaired a tear on my snowshoes and 3 trips later its still holding.

Put a piece of tenacious tape on both sides going 1" past the tear. It will hold forever.

u/similarsituation123 · 6 pointsr/AirForce

I think we should all pitch in and send these, gift-wrapped, to the OP's command who took away precious morale.

u/Toolaa · 6 pointsr/longrange

Kaizen foam.

kaizen Foam

Not sure how the OP cut it, but I just used a very long exacto blade.

u/foofad · 6 pointsr/pebble

I just used this stuff:

to reassemble a Time Steel that I replaced the battery in. Worked great. It's probably not water proof anymore, but with two layers of it, it's probably at least splash resistant.

I peeled the previous double stick material off (it's actually pretty easy with just fingernails alone) and then placed one layer on the plastic gasket, and one layer on the underside of the screen. Getting the screen reconnected was a little tricky and required the use of a long thin metal tool, you might be okay with just a flathead screwdriver.

u/her_nibs · 6 pointsr/whatisthisthing

Gold leaf is pretty cheap stuff. A nice sentimental gift, but no notable monetary value.

u/craznazn247 · 6 pointsr/todayilearned

Anything with gold leaf on it is just capitalizing on the perceived worth of gold to massively inflate the price they charge. And yes, gold is very expensive, but gold leaf isn't. Gold leaf is so incredibly thin that you could coat a whole burger with it for less than $5.

Saffron is expensive but the amount you'd actually use is a few bucks at most.

Same with the rest of the ingredients. The Kobe beef (why would you even use Kobe just to grind it up when you can use regular beef and throw in some extra fat, but whatever).

That burger costs maybe $200 to make at most, most of which is just the wasteful use of Kobe beef. That burger could probably be replicated for under $100 with Wagyu subbed for the Kobe.

u/cashmoneyballer · 5 pointsr/PAXvapor

Couple of helpful accessories that people always mention on this subreddit include:

  • BudKups - these are basically storage compartments for your herb that can be prepacked all at once and then simply inserted and removed, meaning you pack 6 of them at once and then you don't have to repack until all of them are out

  • Pipe Cleaners - these pipe cleaners with bristles will help you greatly when it comes to cleaning your device, they're similar to the ones PAX includes in the full package; you'll also want a very high percentage (91 or 99) isopropyl alcohol to help.
u/busybox42 · 5 pointsr/PAXvapor

I think you are likely right. I've never seen this happen before myself though. Try different pipe cleaners maybe? I use these:

35 feet is honestly long for rope stuff, even for people who do a lot of rope stuff.

Most ropes come in 30 feet pieces and are doubled over to create more surface are, for a total of 15 feet of working length.

Many people prefer even shorter lengths, in the 23 foot range, again doubled over for more like 11 feet of working length.

Some rope packages come with 5 lengths of 30 and 2 lengths of 15. The lengths of 30 are used for complex ties, while the 15 are used for smaller ties or finishing longer ones where you need just a little more rope.

The 15 foot lengths are again doubled over for a very manageable length of 7.5 feet.

You could cut it into 3 pieces. Two 10 foot lengths and one length of 15. Knot the ends off, or use tape if you do not intend on washing it. This would give you enough for say-

u/benalene · 5 pointsr/candlemaking

How are you cutting them? I've cut thousands of wine, champagne, and liquor bottles. I use this cutter and diamond sanding pads, and I get beautiful smooth edges with minimal effort. I don't use the candle provided with the cutting kit. I use a hot water from a kettle and cold tap water to stress the score.

Not saying you have to do it this way, just letting you know that there is a way to get the edges cleaner.

u/IncrediblyEasy · 5 pointsr/somethingimade

Now I usually cut with electric tile cutter and sand on DIY flat lap, but for someone looking to only do straight cuts and not make the glasses for sale I'd say go with one of the jigs available and then just do the hot-cold water routine, a candle or a jet butane torch over the score line.

Alternatively, you can also make a jig yourself, it's not that hard and will probably save around $30.

Loud whistle -

Heavy duty velcro -

Sugru throttle nub -

I liked the recent post with the bicycle bell mod, really anything to enhance safety, especially in NYC, where jaywalkers cross roads diagonally with their heads buried in their phones and then proceed to do the "evade me" shimmy when they finally see you coming.

I use it sparingly, 120 dB is on the human pain threshold for hearing, so it's quite jarring. A quick toot toot tends to resolve most antsy situations, but a nice sustained hard whistle can even help you be heard from inside yellow cabs.

u/MedCityMoto · 5 pointsr/MotoUK

The Yi cameras are really very good for the money. The Yi Lite gets great reviews and it's cheap, and you can use all the standard GoPro mounts, so you can use some Sugru to custom implant a GoPro mount on the face of your helmet. You can also use your general 3M tape to stick the mounts on nicely as well.

u/MarquisDan · 5 pointsr/weddingplanning

We wanted to do candles in wine bottles for our centerpiece but our venue won't let us do uncovered flames. As a workaround we decided to go with something like this where the candles are inside the bottle.

Of course this meant cutting the bottoms off of nearly 100 bottles, which meant exploiting our friends for free labor hours of work delabling, washing, scoring, and cutting the bottles.

The whole process was pretty smooth, but pretty labor intensive. The scorer worked like a charm but it takes a bit of practice to get a straight score. Still we did lose about 12 bottles but we had plenty of extras as we've been begging our friends and families for all their discarded wine bottles for the last year.

If this is something you're interested in for your wedding here are the tools we used:

The one in the second link works slightly better but they were both decent. Basically all you have to do is score the bottle ONCE around in a straight line, then dunk it in hot near boiling water then ice water back and forth. After a dunk or two it splits right along the line.

u/vcaguy · 5 pointsr/pics

I used this glass cutter to etch the glass, then broke it off by dipping the bottles in hot and cold water (back and forth for a few minutes), then sanded the tops for a while.

My advice is if you do it make more then your target number because some break uneven. I made six to get four and just ditched the two worst ones. Ill probably just make those “duds” into candles.

u/rdiss · 4 pointsr/glassart

Being in the US, I don't know any local businesses in your area. I've always found glass shops to be extremely helpful. For the ones that are full -- ask them about other places to take classes. They'll even give you informal pointers if you ask.

I started many years ago without taking a single class. Today, there's probably tons of stuff on the internet, so it may not be necessary.

You'll need a glass cutter. I prefer the pistol grip type, but some people use this kind.

Then you'll need glass. If you can't get any near you, you can buy it online (don't know how much shipping is). Some glass is much easier to cut than other. Ask the salesman if you don't know.

I would get started by learning to cut glass. I'm sure there's a youtube video out there. Here's a page to get you started.

Then there's a lot of materials to buy: glass grinder, copper foil, soldering iron, solder, flux. And a lot of things to know, only a small percentage of which I do. Google is your friend.

u/catbuttoverlord · 4 pointsr/sex

When I started doing bondage, I got a bunch of thick (1/4 inch) cotton clothesline from the hardware store, cut it into 15ft and 30ft lengths, and tied a tight overhand knot at the ends. Rope is always easy to explain away, particularly when it's "normal" rope and not the nice bondage-specific stuff. If you find that you really like tying, you can always buy better rope, and then you have convenient lengths of clothesline for other things.

15ft is enough for tying wrists together in a two-column tie, and you can use that same simple tie to tie together anything that has two 'columns', like two ankles, an arm to a waist, two sides of a bent leg, and so on.

If you want to, say, tie wrists and ankles to the bedposts, what you want is a one-column tie, which is just a secure and comfortable way to secure one 'column' of the body to something else.

If you want to get more into bondage, 30ft is enough to tie a basic chest harness, which you can use to tie other things to, as a convenient 'handle' for your partner, or just to give them more of a feeling of confining rope. A common chest harness is a box tie, or a takate kote, which is basically a chest harness that binds the hands and arms instead of letting them stay loose.

If you want something other than rope, I'd recommend something thicker like scarves rather than strips of fabric. You can pick up scarves at basically any women's accessories section of a department store. Fabric tends to knot tightly, so thicker fabric is a bit better, and it's good to keep something around to help work the knot out (like a knitting needle to stick into the knot) or something to cut the fabric (like a pair of safety shears or a knife you're comfortable using close to skin). Actually, keeping those things around is important when you're tying with rope, too.

u/RSomnambulist · 4 pointsr/blackfriday

Titanium scissors like these aren't actually titanium but steel with a thin surface coating of a titanium compound (probably titanium nitride).

u/jimmybrite · 3 pointsr/PAXvapor

I block the mouth end with an old cut-up q-tip after removing the mouthpiece. Sometimes I'll scrape a bit of goo right away on the top with a dry q-tip but I do the finishing steps near the end by spraying a tiny amount of 99% iso on a qtip and rub away.

I dab the inside of the oven with 70% iso and I start scraping with a knife.

I finish off the oven with a green scouring pad that I cut to 1 cm/2 and dip it in iso and I use a precision screwdriver and I rub it in the oven.

Then I remove the old q tip and use those plastic lined pipe cleaners and dip it in iso and go to town on the vapor chamber.

I also wipe off the flat mouthpiece first with a towel to remove most of the goo and then I use cold water, an old toothbrush and dawn dish soap to clean it since you should avoid using iso on rubber if possible.

To clean the screen I just burn off the stuff with my torch lighter and it's like new.

Sometime I'll scrape some crap off my half pack oven lid with a knife if it gets too bad, then I clean it with iso and a qtip.

At the end I make sure to thoroughly wipe everything with 99% iso as to not inhale small scouring pad particulates that might have been left behind.

I have a tip to help with maintenance, if you're using the original screens, use a pair of pliers and bend the sides a little bit so it's easier to remove. On that note I remove the screen after each use and wipe the pax oven/screen with a dry q-tip, I use a bamboo skewer to help pry it off (by pushing on the side of the screen) and I can use it as a tool to scrape some abv that's stuck in the oven.

I have a Pax 3, a Mighty and a Dynavap M 2017 and yet my go-to is the pax3. If you treat it right, it's amazing.

u/CuriosityKTCat · 3 pointsr/PipeTobacco

Apologies for the text wall!

Often times the white acrylic pearled stems are very difficult to get back to perfect when the airway has been poorly maintained (not sure on your color). Best approach I have found with these is to completely submerge it and soak the stem in a mixture of white distilled vinegar and baking soda. You want the solution to bubble and fizz during the majority of the soak (so use a good amount of baking soda in the bottom of your container and a lot of patience filling it). I will usually place the stem tennon side down. Make sure you have cleared the airway as much as you can. You will want to see bubbles coming out through the lip as it soaks. You can soak for 1hr to overnight (this soak won't hurt anything)

Follow up the soak with passes of a bristle nylon brush ( and hard bristle pipe cleaners if still being stubborn ( Pass multiple soft pipe cleaners dipped in the flat sodium bicarbonate solution, followed by dry ones. Aaaand REPEAT as many time as needed haha. It usually works pretty well for me.

You can also use the flat sodium bicarbonate mixture to clean the outside of the bowl and inside the shank to remove some smell! Vinegar and water is often recommended for cleaning hard wood floors that have been freshly stained as it won't remove stain and sanitizes. The extra dissolved baking soda can help with smell as well :)

u/groucho_barks · 3 pointsr/StonerEngineering

These are only 5 bucks and they work great.

u/ImaginaryDuck · 3 pointsr/asktrees

Is the screen or the pipe itself getting clogged. For the pipe I recommend the pipe cleaners that have metal bristles mixed in with the soft ones as well. As far as the screen I've found that if you make sure to hit the bowl and empty the ash and scrape the screen the second you are done, before the resin and ash can harden it helps keep it clean. Don't leave half smoked bowls. If it is attached and won't clean well it may be worth cutting out and leaving just enough around the edge to hold another screen in place, and just replace that one when it gets clogged.

Edit these are the pipe cleaners i'm talking about

u/angrydeuce · 3 pointsr/trees

Not for this price, they don't :)

And my local shop doesn't, actually. At least, they never do when I've shopped there, but they're much more porn oriented, the smoking accessories are relegated to a corner and most of it is way overpriced glass pieces. I wish there was a proper smoke shop like some of the ones I've seen online around here.

A very cool invention! Bet this person has made some bank. :)

That, combined with a hair dryer, makes it so much easier to remove labels.

Not so easy on a book but I buy and sell stuff that often has stickers. I use this sticker removal kit. The plastic scrapers are pretty handy. I actually sharpened the plastic edges with a nail file, works better. Usually I use citrus based cleaning wipes and goo gone as well but that would likely smear the ink on a book cover.

an option if you can't find anything and are a little handy is buying something similar to this packing foam and cutting a rough seat shape and attaching it to both sides and putting in a box and it will keep anything fairly safe

super 77 for foam to foam and double sided tape to hold foam to the box. That way the foam can be replaced when you fuck it up.

I got these on my wishlist at the moment. I just don't know if I want the 2" or 3" eyes because I haven't measured yet.

u/headhouse · 3 pointsr/DIY

I tried making my own cutter and the results weren't always good. The string method was worse (though I didn't give it much of a chance.)

I bought something almost exactly like this

and I can usually get about 9/10 bottles cut with no flaws. Maybe worth the money?

Also: I tend to use a bucket of cooler faucet water for the higher thermal difference (instead of just room temperature), and I never tap it, I just alternate boiling water (I'm pretty generous with it all around the cut), and you can hear it fracture when it hits the cooler water. If you hear that once or twice, you can usually just gently tug the two pieces apart.

Cutting glass is easier than you'd think. If you find a frame at a garage sale or something with decent glass that is bigger, chances are good you can cut the glass yourself! I just did the same thing today!
I used this:

u/OutOfBounds11 · 2 pointsr/DIY

Cutting glass is easy. The tool to do it is here GLASS CUTTER or you can get them at Lowe's or Home Depot in the paint department for about the same price.

Better yet, Lowe's will cut the glass for you for free and if the cut is wrong, they will redo it at no cost. It is about a third the cost of having a glass shop do the job.

Home Depot no longer cuts glass.

As far as putting a notch in the wood, use a "Dado Blade" on a table saw, this is exactly what these blades are designed to do.

Some things about me...

  1. My favorite color is silver

  2. I was a lurker on this sub for a long time before I turned 18

  3. I am 5'7" or 5'8" not quite sure which

  4. I am in the 12th grade so I am flooded in college applications

  5. I love messing around on photoshop

  6. I want a per really bad but I'm not allowed one

  7. I can't drive

  8. I love candy a lot

    And I love RAOA because gifting and being gifted gives me something to look forward to. Life can be a little rough sometimes. Other than that, watching everyone interact and be nice to each other gives me some nice fuzzy feelings.

    I would really love these googly eyes.

>Also, you said dozens of different ways. I only see 7 things linked here with a few duplicates.

Lmao. That's what you want to nitpick about? The goal is keeping hair out of your eyes, not fancy hairstyles:

u/NUmbermass · 2 pointsr/StonerEngineering
I would try this but I'm not speaking for experience. It claims to be heat and water resistant.

u/nickythegreek · 2 pointsr/AppleWatch

maybe a tiny bit of black sharpie and then some glass glue and call it a day?

or, if you are feeling crazy, try and get the crack to continue around the edge of the screen so it more closely matches the known issue and get it replaced.

u/StraightBad · 2 pointsr/supremeclothing

Huh, I never knew about that. Yep, you're right.

Not sure if this is the good kind or not. Just did a quick google search

u/lookatmeglow · 2 pointsr/vaporents

I would suggest going to a cigar shop and picking up some. I have found a pack of 30 for $1. I have heard some people use a paperclip, but you might scratch the oven or vapor path.

I use these and haven't had to buy any in months.

u/some_phone · 2 pointsr/trees

Usually wherever you buy your glass should have some. I use Zen Bristle Pipe Cleaners, my local shop has them for $1.50 for the 44 pack, which lasts a while (you can reuse them a couple times).

u/Bl00dorange3000 · 2 pointsr/Needlefelting

Instead of foam you could use bits of old sweater. Easier to felt into, and they have a nice weight to them. As for wire, I really like using actual pipe cleaners, not the craft kind. They have really hard bristles that catch the wool and make a great base. They’re not perfect for tiny details, cause they can be spiky, but they are quite strong.

u/Death_has_relaxed_me · 2 pointsr/saplings

Well, you could just mouth hit it with a lighter and not inhale it. You know, until you stop tasting burnt cotton. Then just blow out all the burnt stuff.

Also, if you REALLY wanna clean it out...

Your best bet for wood is probably going to be pipe cleaners. They were originally created for cleaning wooden and clay pipes. This with a light alcohol/water mix (probably 30alcohol/70water) and a nice drying overnight should have you in ship shape.

Hope this helps.

u/Doobitron · 2 pointsr/vaporents

Your vapor path is probably clogged. Your unit is getting hot because it's either clogged and you can't remove the vapor and heat that's being produced, or, it's getting hot because you didnt pack it tight enough and the heater is being over worked.

I use those to clean all my vapes. Remove the mouthpiece. Dip one in 90% iso and stick it through the vapor path holding the unit upside down. Any excess alcohol will drip down the pipe cleaner and get absorbed or drip to the floor. You dont want to risk alcohol getting underneath the silicone and getting into your electricals. The pipe cleaner will pop out the screen and you can scrub that down. Then run the pipe cleaner back and forth while twisting to get a good scrub in the vapor path. I usually have to use two pipe cleaners to get the vapor path clean. A clean pax is a happy pax.

u/somethingfortoday · 2 pointsr/woodworking

Why not just save yourself time and energy and change the design. That's what they did to make it work. I would make the legs from 4x4 (which is really 3.5 x 3.5) and the horizontals pieces from 2 x 4 (again, realy 2.5 x 3.5) Everything will match up and it will look just fine. Or just use 2x for all of it. That's the best part about seeing a design you like. Just make it work for the tools and materials you have at your disposal.
Also, another suggestion would be to add rubber tabs or felt tabs to the top of the wood for the glass to rest on. Otherwise, that glass could easily slide around. I'd go with something like this to keep the glass protected from the wood and in place:

u/ahn_anon · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Here's an easy fix I've used on my HHKB that solved all my problems with it slipping around:

Scotty Peelers are amazing! I bought some of them specifically for removing stickers from Gamestop cases after I bought them after I got tired of peeling them off by hand, having sticky residue left behind, then having my game cases stick together in the shelf.

Any small amount of residue left behind can easily be wiped away with Goo Gone and a washcloth.

u/chazwhiz · 2 pointsr/Flipping

Get a set of these Scotty Peelers. For sticky residue you can use rubbing alcohol or Goo Gone. I've also seen people suggest lighter fluid or hairspray, although I've not personally used either.

u/BackdoorCurve · 2 pointsr/Flipping

absolutely. For most, Goo Gone and a rag will work. For very stuck on ones, I have a Wagner heat gun that I will blast it for a few seconds and it will lift right off.

Scotty Peelers are also a very useful tool for removing stickers.

u/botabota · 2 pointsr/Flipping

Scotty Peeler is the god at removing price stickers. You will also need to use blow dryer/heat gun to activate the glue, whilst removing the tag. Check youtube for more info.

If there is some glue leftover (usually the case for old old tag) then you can try using googone or similar products.

u/nerdybirdie · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Scavenger hunts are too much fun! I should be working! RAWR! Thanks for the fun break =]

1.) Something that is grey. My name is makeup and I am grey! WL

2.) Something reminiscent of rain. This color is called "Naughty Nautical". Nautical = water, water = rain. =D?? WL

3.) Something food related that is unusual. Pretty sure most people don't have teeney shaped veggie cutters. WL

4.) Something on your list that is for someone other than yourself. Tell me who it's for and why. (Yes, pets count!) This is for my two parrots! My quaker especially loves dried papaya. I'm teaching her how to fly right now and have been using food as a reward, but we ran out of papaya a couple of weeks ago, and our local bird store has been out of stock for a long time. Turns out that Whole Foods doesn't carry dried papaya either. Rawr! WL

5.) A book I should read! I am an avid reader, so take your best shot and tell me why I need to read it! The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I had heard about this when the movie came out in English. I liked the movie and then moved on with my life. Come this spring, I found myself facing a LOT LOT LOT of driving by myself, so I started borrowing audiobooks from the library. I borrowed all three of these books and REALLY enjoyed them. It wasn't at all what I expected. They're murder mysteries with a lot of themes about violence against women. When I learned about the author, it became that much more interesting. The author wrote these books with the intention of making 10, but died after the third one. They found them after he died. The themes about sexual violence stem from a gang rape he witnessed as a teenager. He never forgave himself for not being able to help her, so he channeled all those emotions into his writing later in life. Anyway.....interesting stuff. Good books. I recommend them :)

6.) An item that is less than a dollar, including shipping... that is not jewelry, nail polish, and or hair related! Pfft.

7.) Something related to cats. I love cats! (keep this SFW, you know who you are...) If I was a cat, this would be my JAM!

8.) Something that is not useful, but so beautiful you must have it. Dresses are admittedly useful for avoiding public indecency charges, but not really useful beyond that. BUT LOOK AT THE RAINBOWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WL

9.) A movie everyone should watch at least once in their life. Why? Not on my wishlist (it's on American Netflix though!), but everyone should be aware of the impact of plastic on the environment and our bodies. Education is everything. Plus, there's a newborn baby at the end.

10.) Something that would be useful when the zombies attack. Explain. 1. Stab zombie in the skull. 2. ??? 3. Profit. The reviews rave that it's super sharp and doesn't stick so it probably wouldn't get stuck in their skull like other knives. WL

11.) Something that would have a profound impact on your life and help you to achieve your current goals. I don't know if I'd use the word profound, but it would sure help me out. A big passion of mine is learning to ID birds. I'm pretty good at most birds, but finding information on juveniles is VERY difficult sometimes. I've used this book before to help identify birds in hand, but I think the information regarding juvenile plumage would help me identify young birds from afar. It's even part of my job to identify birds! WL

12.) One of those pesky Add-On items. This is an Add-On item, but it's also a hair addon =P Not on my WL, but I'm losing my hair like crazy so I might have to look into these >.>

13.) The most expensive thing on your list. Your dream item. Why? This isn't the most expensive item on my list (that was #8), but it's the one that would help me the most! When I do field work, I tend to have a lot of gear on me at once, and the extra strain of binoculars around my neck tends to give me some really freaking sore muscles. A harness would be MUCH easier on my shoulders/neck/back. I start field work again in October, so I plan on buying it for myself by then anyway =] WL

14.) Something bigger than a bread box. EDIT A bread box is typically similar in size to a microwave. This is larger than the average bread box.

15.) Something smaller than a golf ball. I am smaller than a golf ball! WL

16.) Something that smells wonderful. This smells amazing!!! I'm infatuated with cinnamon, but had to stop using cinnamon Crest YEARS ago because I developed a bad reaction to it. This stuff is expensive, but the company is very environmentally responsible and I feel good giving my business to them. WL

17.) A (SFW) toy. This seems pretty SFW unless you're playing Cards Against Humanity. evil grin WL

18.) Something that would be helpful for going back to school. I used sticky notes all the time in school! WL

19.) Something related to your current obsession, whatever that may be. I've obsessed with birds since I was 11. I've been obsessed with rainbows forever. I'm currently obsessed with sushi. THIS IS ALL THREE! WL

20.) Something that is just so amazing and awe-inspiring that I simply must see it. Explain why it is so grand. Hear me out! This baby can keep ice for DAYS. Sitting out in the sun for hours on end? NO PROBLEM! YOU'LL HAVE ICE AT THE END OF THE DAY!! Seriously, Thermos needs to pay me for how much I rave about their stuff. My water bottle has still had ice in it after three days AND being refilled twice. No joke.

[Kaizen foam] ( would work. You could use a hole saw or a razor to cut the diameter you need and you just peel off layers until you get the exact thickness you want. It's really easy to work with.

u/kauai_chiver · 2 pointsr/MilwaukeeTool

Amazon has full 2’x4’ sheets of Kaizen foam for $32.50, you’d just have to cut them to fit your PACKOUT. The link is for the 57mm (2-1/4”) foam, so may have to browse for the thinner ones if that’s what you need. Fastcap does sell their own adhesive to hold multiple layers together, but you could probably use something like 3M’s Super 77, which can be found at most craft/home improvement stores. Fastcap Kaizen Foam 57mm (2-1/4”) Black

Otherwise you can buy them pre-cut for your particular box. Comes in different height/color options, just cost a bit more.

u/MisterNoisy · 2 pointsr/gundeals

I used this stuff. I'm not sure what thickness/size you need, but do a search for 'kaizen foam' on Amazon and it'll cough up the sizes/thicknesses available.

u/da_na_na_na_Cat_Man · 2 pointsr/ar15

Yeah I tried that at first but wasnt very happy with the results, the pluck and pull type was really hard to just cut a form fitting shape, too soft, and I ended up ripping it even with a brand new exacto blade. This stuff cost a good bit, but it was totally worth it in regards to end quality of the entire case. It's still discounted a bit, though I did grab it when it was half off. If you go with this case, 2-¼" is exactly what you want.

u/halfstache78 · 2 pointsr/crafts

You sound like my girlfriend. More sleep is lost to crafting than anything else. She also does a lot of stuff with wine/liquor bottles. This bottle cutting tool is awesome and there's all kinds of neat things to make. She primarily makes the self watering planters and luminaries (cuts the bottom off and sits it on top of a votive candle). Although some of the stuff she makes requires more expensive power tools. She has an ETSY store called Mino'aka Studios. You may be able to get a couple of ideas from there.

We love the idea of craft trading as well. If you're interested you should reach out to her on ETSY. She knows about my redditing "problem" so just mention we talked on here. I'm more into woodworking, but she's the crafting genius. I'm sure she'd love to talk to you about that.

That's funny, we have a lot of Nov/Dec birthdays as well...including mine. I can sympathize. The crafting really ramps up once the weather cools off and with the holidays approaching.

I bet now you don't feel so bad about rambling, huh? I tend to go on and on as well.

u/Ryvaeus · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I have a lot of leftover double-sided LCD screen tape, so I just used that. It comes off without any damage, fading, or residue after months of staying on the Joycon. I suspect you could probably use regular 3M double-sided tape without issue though.

u/snapsitsthekorean · 2 pointsr/samsung

I would go with a phone adhesive tape It's a quick fix until you get a replacement, or you could apply a wet glue (specific for phone) if you want to use it more. In my experience, the tape will be fine for a while.

u/jrt364 · 2 pointsr/Gameboy

You don't "need" to put an adhesive, but if you don't, you risk dust getting beneath your lens and stuck onto the screen, which obviously isn't ideal.

I put 3mm double sided sticky tape. I used this one from Amazon.

You might be able to find a smaller roll of tape, but you really don't want to go more than 7mm IMO. I chose 3mm because I use it for other projects. I just put two tape pieces like this along every edge of the screen:


And definitely no glue unless you want to risk a runny mess and never take off your lens again.

u/joshieecs · 2 pointsr/ChapoTrapHouse

This is excessive and wasteful, but putting it on a burger and selling it for $100 or whatever is just duping gullible rich people. It's like (at most) $5 worth of gold on a $12 burger.

Gold foil sheets are actually not outrageously priced. Here's an example from Amazon 25 sheets for $43 bucks.

Gold gilded sheets are even less expensive, 100 for $13, not much more expensive than any other kind of fancy decorative supply.

u/LegoCalrissian · 2 pointsr/subaruoutback

Pic of the broken part? Used is definitely the best option, but could the broken part be put back on? Little super glue? Depending if there is a lever you can put some Sugru on it as a nice grip that won't cut your finger.

Great idea. Will really help those riding behind you understand why your not moving over. Thank you for being considerate to others!!!

As an idea to help you see behind you. You might be able to get a small flexible plastic mirror that you can attach to the brim of your helmet. If oriented the correct way, you should be able to make out if someone is behind you. In a catch, it is very unlikely to cause a secondary issue. Something like this:

On a serious note, it's really easy to cut glass. If you can find some glass of the right tint in a thrift store, it's cheap to get. Then go home, buy one of these, then go at it to your heart's content and save money.

Really, you shouldn't be paying to have glass shipped to you, nor for others to cut it. It's quick easy and cheap.

u/soithrewitaway · 1 pointr/StonerEngineering

I was in a big pinch the other day and I used some Gorilla Super Glue and it worked pretty well until I ran hot water over the bowl. It re-broke (the stem was broken cleanly off a bong's bowl) and I re-glued it. It lasted a little over a month and then it managed to re-break again after 10 different cleanings. Not bad for some random super glue that didn't even have glass listed.

To be honest, I think the best bet is just to Google something like 'glass glue'... just found this super glue which seems to have OK reviews.

u/CrayonData · 1 pointr/StonerEngineering

u/under_design · 1 pointr/DIY
u/kcpwnsgman · 1 pointr/GunPorn

No problem. You'll probably be cleaning lint etc mostly from it if you plan to carry it around. I tend to go a little overboard when I clean my guns, but I typically don't clean my rifles/shotguns all that frequently and will go between multiple thousands of rounds before I do.

When I clean my guns I use a mat like this to absorb oils etc and this to get all of the black carbon out of it. I use these to clean the bore/inside of the barrel. I use these and these for the hard to reach places that still have something building up on them.

When you're done cleaning everything, you'll want to make sure you put oil/grease on all the components that come in contact with other parts. Basically if it rolls oil it, if it slides grease it. I use this on the slide/rails where they contact each other and use this in most other places. Then I'll wipe down the exterior with this.

Really all you have to make sure you do is get most of the debris out of the gun, and make sure you have oil on surfaces that create friction or need some kind of rust preventative coating.

Pipe cleaners

I hope you feel better!

u/my45acp1911 · 1 pointr/Dynavap

Smoke shops, craft stores, gun shops, Walmart, Amazon and such. Colorful and/or sparkly pipe cleaners are more for crafts and might cost more. Look for cheap fuzzy white pipe cleaners.

I'm still working through a huge pack of 12" pipe cleaners I bought years ago. Handy to have around. I cut them in half so I have twice as many.

Edit to add this link of some on Amazon and another link. These have stiff bristles and are made more for cleaning instead of crafts.

u/NotYoursTruly · 1 pointr/saplings

I always put everything away as soon as I've finished, that way I know I'm not going to bump into it, knock it to the floor, etc.

Cleaning on a weekly basis is a good habit to get into, the alcohol and salt is pretty cheap compared to the chemical solutions that are sold that do exactly the same thing and get it no cleaner in the end. Don't forget to clean the bowl and stem. Purchase bottle brushes for the purpose and clean those off after use every week. It will keep your bong looking like new and make sure every different strain smoked tastes as it should.
Also stop by the tobacconist to purchase pipe cleaners, the ones with metal filaments in them, they do an excellent job of keeping those stems clean.

This is what the pipe cleaners I'm talking about look like. I usually cut them in half 'cause they're too long as is.

u/troutsushi · 1 pointr/wicked_edge

I cannot open the link, either, but I'be been a pipe smoker for most of my life and I'd call these pipe cleaners.

Anyhow, you don't need those to clean a razor. A toothbrush and dish soap are all you'll ever need for that. I usually just give my razors a gentle scrub with my nail brush when changing blades. No biggie.

u/DrWholigan · 1 pointr/trees
u/yourtokingbuddy · 1 pointr/trees

+1 to just ISO (99% OR 91% Isopropyl alcohol) and salt. Though I learned the hard way that if you're cleaning a grinder just use ISO. The salt makes it more difficult to reclaim the goods.

This process will take a couple/few hours but just let it sit in a bag, shake it around every so often, and of course one bag per item if it's glass. You don't want to lose a piece in the cleaning. Overnight is great too if you want. I strongly recommend pipe cleaners with hard bristles too.

Please learn to play safe. Do not hesitate to say that something bothers you (mentally or physically)

I did my wife's hands up too tight (oops!) and she immediately mentioned the tingling in her fingers. Do not wait to say something is too tight, too rough, etc.

I got this rope (200ft) and it's very soft and doesn't tangle.

Also, make sure you have a set of sheers like this:

u/frankenduke · 1 pointr/BDSMcommunity

The local Home Despot is the best place to get started.
You want the kind or rope without a core like
twisted nylon

There are some good resources online for how to do ties. Start with twisted monk

And buy a set of EMT shears
Important in case of emergency either physical or mental.

Very important, it's ok to tap out and stop right in the middle, by either side. Set up a safe word.

After that spend a bunch of time talking about it. What you both liked, didn't like, want to try..

The problem is the water. They aren't meant to be filled with water. Otherwise, you would use something like this

u/mnml_inclination · 1 pointr/running

Tenacious Tape may work well for this repair.

Also, do you find that your heels are slipping when you run? There has to be a reason for the premature material failure...

u/abowlofsoda · 1 pointr/3Dprinting

I use scotty peelers I had laying around. They were made to remove store price stickers. They have a thin sharp edge that really gets under the print.

u/sords · 1 pointr/Flipping

I have obtained similar items when buying iphones and video game consoles. I can't recommend these particular ones, but the cords I have come in handy. First one is for the several different apple products, 2nd link is for ps2/ps3, wii and xbox 360. The particular one I have has an adapter for some older nintendo consoles.

This things pretty handy. Is it the device that's broken or are my batteries dead:

scotty peeler

goo gone

barkeepers friend

magnifiying glass with light good for looking at little markings or tiny text

upc scanner

u/Daxt3r9133 · 1 pointr/Bestbuy

Bring headphones (I listened to audio books). Make sure each team member has their regular department, and have a sign off so u know who did what and that it was finished without hunting them down. Plan your path through the department. With the paper tags u have to tear learn the order and tear them b4 u go out so u have a stack and dont have to tear as you go. When putting out tags do one type at a time, i.e. I started with peg hook tags - square tags - rectangle - etc. This is so u aren't switching between piles or searching. Other than all that just learn to go into zombie mode and it will fly by. You can try a tool like the "Scotty Peeler" if your having issues getting the tags off. I normally put the peg labels on lightly so they peel easy and for things that I know change every week I put a little hanging over so I can tear and go (some leaders dont like this). (back to keeping to your assigned departments) (

u/snusin2017 · 1 pointr/Snus

I hate that as well, for me if I rush it I end up messing it up so I go slow with good results. If you can get a perfect can and or catch lid out of a roll just use that one. There is also stuff like this

u/A_Little_Gray · 1 pointr/videos

I want to be the guy who makes one of these videos whilst carrying a spare pair of "googly eyes" to stick on the can.

"There you go little fella!"

u/waldowade · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

She's gonna smack you

I would have said she won't hit you but you put that in there for some reason and obviously you know your girlfriend!

I kinda need these googly eyes for my family, too much fun

u/playhertwo · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This item would be totally rad, man. My daughter would have tons of fun putting googley eyes on all the things!

u/Ironicshoes · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This would be my ultimate $5 and under item. Googly eye all the things!

The dog ate my homework!!

u/Asmor · 1 pointr/Nerf

This is what I got, less than $6 for 500 eyes, with Amazon Prime:

Only downside is that they're not sticky-backed, so you'll need to buy some super glue. I got a bottle of super glue with a brush applicator, and it works great.

u/dannylegreat · 1 pointr/funny
u/KillerSiren · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Any combo of this , this or this !

Who doesnt love googly eyes, feathers and pompoms?! Art and crafts stuffs!

Weight hmmm ... 7.9 lbs

u/starmandan · 1 pointr/telescopes

I bought sheets of Kaizan foam to line my cases. I found a specialty woodshop that sells it near me. You can also buy cases that have pluck foam inside. Pelican brand cases are the most popular but are expensive.

u/BWFree · 1 pointr/knifeclub

It’s this stuff: Fastcap Kaizen Foam 57mm (2-1/4") Black

I cut slots for them.

u/PikaBonk · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

Saw this awhile back. Add some foam to it and you should be good to go :) a good budget option if you ask me.

If you're looking for something more customized, there's these custom sleeves that are affordable. There's also Modern Coup if you have the money and want something classier.

u/saremei · 1 pointr/oculus

I didn't go overly compact, but I did buy a cheap hard shell carry on bag from amazon and some Kaizen foam. Tore out the innards of the carry on bag and cut out slots for headset, touch controllers cameras and even a slot for my 1080 for the times that I don't need to bring a computer, but the computer at the destination needs a better card.

It accompanied me on 6 flights so far.
Here's a link to an image of it before being completed. It lacks the Video card slot. I also added some command wire hooks on the top and bottom inside of the camera half and ran two bungie cords between them to hold the cameras down.

u/RobertNeyland · 1 pointr/gundeals

*Open cell foam is generally bad for long term storage

You would be fine if you used closed cell polyethylene foam, which you can pick up at places like McMaster Carr or Amazon.

u/Alexio247 · 1 pointr/Multicopter

you can find a big airsoft backpack and put a foam like this , cut it and you are surely safer than the strapped backpaks IMHO

u/reroll4tw · 1 pointr/photography

I do a very similar set up for backpacking. Peakclip with body on front or on the top of my bag in a foam insert (when I know the conditions are just going to suck, like when I'm snow camping) I built using this ( and extra lenses get wrapped in a fleece or with my quilt.


For biking, can you strap it to your bike? Then I could see using a pelican case or something similar.

u/Logicalnot · 1 pointr/DIY
While it is not the perfect tool, [Ephrem's Original Bottle Cutter Kit]( is one of the best way I found to do this.
u/pladhoc · 1 pointr/tequila
u/carissalf · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This is so nice of you, thank you for hosting this contest.

I'm all about repurposing. This wine bottle cutter would be a much safer way to repurpose my wine bottles!

Town Drunk

Thanks again!

u/MotelWorm · 1 pointr/phonerepair

I won't lie... Cheap Amazon Prime accessible tape.
The two names are as follows;

2mm Clear Double Sided Strong Adhesive Acrylic Tape For Phone LCD Screen Repair

Eco-Fused Adhesive Sticker Tape for Use in Cell Phone Repair - 2mm Tape - also including 1 Pair of Tweezers / Eco-Fused Microfiber Cleaning Cloth (black)

I know they're cheap, but how much should I spend/what should I search for when I purchase? Computers are my hobby, but I work in kitchens and bake bread full time... Soooo, I'm pretty good with my hands. Application is not the issue here.

u/LordHeavy2 · 1 pointr/macbookpro

Thats what I was thinking. Do you think this would work? 2mm seems like its the perfect thickness, though it's double sided and I'd only use a single side.

u/ominouschaos · 1 pointr/techsupport

Not quite, but here is something you could possibly go off of... :)

u/satoshi64 · 1 pointr/magick

Another quick question and I'm done for now: is it okay if I get gold leaf that isn't entirely real gold but a blend will it work? (I might be wrong but I've found some listing that says it is like 999/1000 real gold which I read as meaning 99% real gold, so I might be wrong).

Better way of putting it: will these be alright?

u/ericn1300 · 1 pointr/AbandonedPorn

Not enough gold in that room to be worth your time, it's all gold leaf This is actually very common in Japanese temples.

u/gridzbispudvetch · 1 pointr/DemocraticSocialism

This is gold leaf. It's insanely thin, about 4-5 millionths of an inch according to Google. You can get 100 sheets of it for $12. I don't think it's quite as much of a splurge as you believe. It's pointless, but it's not something only the richest of the rich can do.

u/tapetum_lucidum · 1 pointr/daddit

Are you allowed to decorate that? Needs googly eyes! Also, she has a beautiful smile!

u/nijoli · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Whatever you do, glue google eyes on your Roomba if you get one like this

But seriously, here is a link to the Roomba I love and here is a link to the google eyes!

u/mrphilipjoel · 1 pointr/OculusGo

Any self-respecting Go user has a pair of these on the front. Without them, you’ll look ridiculous.

u/C0USC0US · 1 pointr/gifs

It's all good they have them for $6.49!

u/lmJuice · 1 pointr/MTB

So I got the idea off YouTube from a guy called MTB Alan. Super awesome video of him showing you step by step. Check it out.

Sugru Mouldable Glue - Black (3-Pack)

Suptig Tripod Mount Adapter for Gopro

That’s it. IMO looks way better than zip ties, holds much better than zip ties. The Sugru is tested for 4lbs (roughly 2kg) and it feels solid as a rock. Took about 5 minutes to knead, 2 minutes to mold, and then let it sit for 48 hours. The pack says 24 will be plenty but since I used all 3 packs I decided to let it sit a little longer.

Hope it helps somebody! 🤙🏼🤙🏼

u/mrmnder · 1 pointr/AskTechnology

Not really, about $10 for a 3 pack or $20 for an 8 pack

The frayed wire is one of the standard use cases for this stuff.

u/Alward73 · 1 pointr/Super73

If you're after a cheap and dirty fix:

  1. Camera tether stuck to top of headlamp
  2. Sugru around the edge of the tether to reinforce the bond
  3. Strong zip tie through the tether and around the middle section of the handlebars, it's then supported above and by the original mount.

    Got the idea from this video (which explains it a bit better):
u/FormerEbayAddict · 1 pointr/Fallout

This stuff is ideal for applications like these.

u/Tavataar · 1 pointr/motorcycles

GoPro Hero 5 is only $250. Grab some Sugru and attach to the chin of your helmet.

u/magikjaz · 1 pointr/jewelrymaking

What about Sugru?

u/scobility · 1 pointr/motorcycles

When mounting to curvy helmets, just get some of this and do this.

u/UJL123 · 1 pointr/Magic

I was thinking about using something like this (flexible mirror sheet). Super easy to work with, no sharp edges and you can roll it up into a tube if you wanted to.

u/TheUncleShow · 1 pointr/EKWB

Bring the tube to any place that does glass work, like windows and glass tables and what not and ask them to cut it, or buy cheap bottle cutter and cut it yourself


u/jon_hendry · 1 pointr/badhistory

You could probably conceal the tiki-ness somehow. Get one of these $22 bottle cutting tools.

Take a dark glass wine bottle. Cut the bottom off. Stick the Tiki torch through the bottle so that the upside-down bottle conceals the torch. You might have to cut the neck end of the wine bottle off in order to make that end big enough to fit the torch through.

Then figure out a way to hold the bottle in place. Maybe tie a short stick crossways below the bottle so the bottle can't slide down.

u/GenosHK · 1 pointr/Rainbow6

Looks like a sticker someone would place at an airport.

u/akhorahil187 · 1 pointr/assholedesign

The first time I saw this was in a prank video 2-3 years ago. It wasn't in Houston though. Oh wow... this is getting serious

u/Jonessee22 · 0 pointsr/CampingGear

Gore-Tex should work, I used one on a pair on snowboarding pants about 8 years ago and the patch is still holding strong through 5 or 6 washings. I don't see why it wouldn't work on a sleeping pad. I actually carry one in my repair kit out on the trail for a sleeping pad or rain jacket/pants haven't used it yet on those items but I know it worked damn well on my pants.

EDIT: Hmm, I think the gore-tex I linked and the Tenacious Tape are the same thing just under different names?

They look the same and both are made by gear aid, the gore-tex package says "Tenacious Tape". Now I'm curious, might have to do some tests.
