If I were to start over and buy new equipment, one of those all-in-one systems would be very attractive. My only concern with them is I don't have a high voltage outlet and I wouldn't want to deal with an under powered system.

For a traditional system I'd do something like this:

u/Nexdeus · 38 pointsr/watercooling

Get mechanical grade alcohol, 99%, get it in the pressurized spray can, and regular bottle. Disassemble the GPU and get any parts that got coolant on them out of the system.

Get a clean plastic container that can fit the parts you've gotten wet. Put the alcohol in there from the non pressurized n bottle. Place parts in bath of alcohol, use the pressurized alcohol and qtips to clean your parts. Once done, let dry for at least 48 hours in front of a fan.

I've recovered an entire x99 system this way. Good luck.

Here's the 2014 Water Quality Report. It's a good read.

The bulk of the water testing takes place directly at the 3 major water facilities in SD. As you may already know the lead contamination in Flint did not happen at the water treatment facility, but rather in the pipes that lead to homes. The city inadvertently changed the water pH and failed to add an additive that would prevent the old pipes from corroding.

The way the city of San Diego test for these metals is by sampling the water in 50 homes. According to their results, we are good and the water is safe. If you want to do your due diligence, buy one of these cheap drinking water tests that include testing for iron, lead and copper among other things.

I did, and confirmed some of their results.


EDIT 2: Perchlorate is more of a health concern, and it's not mentioned on the report. Is it regulated by the city?

  • Perchlorate is a salt (ClO4^−) that is naturally occurring in SD; and also a byproduct of military rocket fuel, and fireworks. It affects the thyroid gland can decrease production of thyroid hormones.

  • California EPA reports peak concentrations in San Diego that average 9.9μg/L. MCL is currently 1μg/L and was lowered from 6μg/L a couple of years ago.

  • EPA - Perchlorate Fact Sheet 2014

    EDIT: Lead and copper results from 2014.

Ninety-one percent may be a lot better than 70%, but I wouldn't call it ideal.

FWIW, I have a bottle of this 99.953%-pure anhydrous isopropyl alcohol, which is even better.

u/smithincanton · 24 pointsr/LearnUselessTalents

Definitely a useless talent as you could just buy some.

Hell, they even make fake tampons designed to sneak alcohol into venues in. It's totally possible.

u/USS-SpongeBob · 15 pointsr/diypedals

Eighth swirl attempt. Trial and error = improvement.

It's an aluminum enclosure, so paint adhesion is always a potential problem. I used self-etching primer - it chemically etches the surface of the aluminum, providing a good base coat that other paints can stick to.

After that, I put down a base coat of intense orange. I've found that swirled paint jobs tend to have a lot of see-through areas, so you want to plan the bottom layer strategically. I let this dry for about 3 days before I proceeded to the dip because enamel spray paints stay tacky for so long.

For dipping, I put a large plastic trash bag into a 3 gallon bucket before adding the water. The trash bag prevents paint from mucking up your bucket, which is important if your bucket is also used for serving chilled canned beverages at fabulous summer barbecues.

I filled the bucket with room temperature water. I added 7.5g Borax per liter of water to reduce the surface tension and allow the paint to flow over the water's surface.

For paints, I used Humbrol brand enamel paints. I was able to find them at my local hobby shop even though they weren't listed as a retailer on the Humbrol website. They should be available at most serious hobby / model airplane stores, as they're one of the classic brands of model paint that have been around almost since plastic models appeared on the market.

If doing 3-color swirls, I think think one could dip about 10 pedals from three 14mL cans of paint. The consistency should be like warm syrup: not thin like water, but able to drip or drizzle off the end of a coffee stir stick (the smaller size makes them easier to use than a popsicle stick because the cans are so little). Stir really well. If too thick, thin with mineral spirits / white spirit. I dropped it in with a plastic pipette - about 10-30 drops were required, depending on how thick the paint was. (I also tried thinning with white gas / naphtha, but it did not work as well. Despite the similarity in name - white spirit vs white gas - they are not equivalent!)

I'm going to stop posting links now; the section above is where I had the most trouble finding quality instruction in the Internet when I was figuring out how to do this, but there are plenty of YouTube videos that demonstrate the actual swirling/dipping process described below.

I drop the paints into the water by dipping a stir stick into the paint and letting it drip off the end into the water. Drop the paints into the water from as close to the surface as possible - if you drop from too high, the paint will plunge through the surface and sink to the bottom. The first few drops on the surface might thin out into a fine sheen on the surface of the water, but eventually they'll saturate the surface with a fine layer of paint and you'll be able to start getting good dots and ropes of color. I noticed that different colors seem to behave differently as they hit the surface - it's smart to try some experimental dips to master your paints before actually dipping your enclosure.

Work quickly. The paint is drying on the surface of the water even as you drop it in. It doesn't even take a minute for a thin coat of floating paint to tack up.

Swirl carefully with a stick to make your designs and move the paint where you want it. Be aware that the more you swirl, the more paint you will end up with on your stir stick instead of on your work piece.

Dip your pedal slowly and carefully (on the end of a stick or a coat hanger so your hand doesn't end up getting swirled too). The paint will be pulled onto the surface of the pedal and dragged underwater with the pedal. After it's completely submerged, use crunched up newspaper to clear an open spot on the surface of the water to pull the pedal back out so it doesn't end up with swirls on top of swirls.

Pull the pedal out. Blow or shake the water off. By the time you're finished doing that, thin areas of paint will basically be dry, medium areas will be tacky, and thick areas will be on their way. Hang it up to dry in a wind/dust free area.

If you hate it, wipe it off with mineral spirits within an hour or two and start over.

If you like it, let it dry a couple days and then top coat with something tough.

u/dutchesse · 14 pointsr/Indiemakeupandmore

Honestly? You will screw up once or twice when you first start, but generally, it's a fairly easy process and you'll save yourself a lot of money in the long run by doing it yourself.

Just to give you an idea of how I do it, here are the items I use. If you have Amazon Student/Prime, it'll be even easier:

  • 26mm palette (this one is $19/3)

  • Pipettes

  • Jojoba oil

  • Double-ended spatula

  • Alcohol (I believe mine is 70%, but I'm not able to check on that. Either way, if you're living in a dorm, this is something you may want to have anyways in a first aid kit)

    For me, I mix it in small tupperware (obviously, I don't use this for storing food at anymore). For 2 small packets of Shiro samples (or even a minijar (both of which fit comfortably in the aforementioned palette)), I use a mixture of no more than 3 drops of jojoba oil and use alcohol to mix it into a paste, of which I then place into the aluminum palette.

    You don't want to use an excessive amount of the oil because then it will almost never dry and dilute the color. Whereas, alcohol evaporates out faster so you want to use more of the alcohol than the jojoba oil (or whatever binding solution you choose). Once it gets dried down to a certain point, you can press if you choose to, but I never feel I need to when I do it this way because it's generally pretty uniform.

    I know dorm rooms are crampy, but you can do this anywhere once you get the hang of it and for cheaper than having someone else do it (especially if you take into consideration the excessive shipping costs--which will be more than the cost of what you'd be using for some of these products alone).

    ETA: Added details.
u/uberhobo · 14 pointsr/askscience

25% phosphoric acid isn't particularly dangerous, and it's not horribly corrosive. Plastic or glass will be fine. I wouldn't let it sit on metal for an extended period of time, so be careful if you plan to use metal needles with your syringe. Plastic transfer pipettes work nicely, though. I like this style because it allows you to eyeball the amount you're adding without needing anything like a syringe.

u/AcetylenePotatoGun · 14 pointsr/Aquariums


Might want to consider one of these if you are color blind. pH Meter

u/paingawd · 12 pointsr/electronic_cigarette

Here's the short and dirty list:

  • Scale for mixing by weight It's recommended that you start mixing by weight. It makes your results more repeatable and cuts down on cleanup.

  • Vegetable Glycerin

  • Propylene Glycol

  • Bottles to contain your juice(I prefer HDPE bottles over PET or glass) A great vendor on Amazon for bottles is 510 Central. Get a few different sizes: 10 ml for testing flavors and new mixes, 30-120 ml bottles for making larger batches of juice(I usually use 30 or 60 ml bottles)

  • Labels for said bottles. You can go with printing your own on a printer, or you can slap a piece of masking tape on the bottle and write the juice name on that with a sharpie. Choice is yours, but use some sort of label so that you're not playing "guess the flavor" after a week's steeping.

  • Nicotine, if you use juices that contain nic. If you're a no-nic vaper, skip it. If you want nicotine in your juice, don't go cheap. Two of the most suggested companies to source nicotine are Carolina Extracts and Nicotine River. Carolina is more expensive, but it's clean with ZERO flavor(That's a good thing) I just recently ordered some nicotine from Nic River, so I can't speak to quality, but it's what a good number of mixers use. I prefer to mix with 100 mg/ml nicotine in a 100% PG base. PG-based nicotine is less prone to "hot spots"-Areas of liquid in the container where the nicotine concentration is higher than specified on the label. Hot spots are more common with VG-based nicotine(So I've read). Regardless of whichever base you choose to go with, ALWAYS shake your nicotine before using it or pouring off into a smaller container! In fact, ALWAYS shake your ingredients! Nicotine and flavor concentrates should always be brought to room temperature and shaken before use to ensure that they haven't settled between mixing sessions.

  • Flavors. Don't go willy-nilly buying flavors that sound good. Some work well with each other, and some get along about as well as Jack Daniels and pizza. Instead, find 2-3 recipes that sound good to you and buy the concentrates to make those juices.

  • Head over to /r/DIY_eJuice and read the sidebar. Once you're done, read it again. I'm not trying to sound elitist. There's a shit-ton of great info in the sidebar and wiki. Use the knowledge that others have gathered together in one place to your advantage. There's even a "first flavors list" over there that if followed, a new mixer can make some very decent juices straight out of the gate.

    That's the quick run down. It's a blast to do, and a helluva lot cheaper than buying at your local B&M! The up-front cost is a little steep, but for about $100 you can get to making some great juice.
u/rexanimate7 · 11 pointsr/atheism

Even if they aren't, it's awfully easy to remove the cap from a bottle, empty it, fill it with something else, and then replace the cap with a new cap that has an unbroken seal.

A couple bucks on Amazon could go a long way for trolling your religious family members and friends.

u/skiddlzninja · 11 pointsr/DIY_eJuice

If you buy even 5 30mL bottles a month of premium juice, just use that money at the start to BUILD A KIT. Don't buy one, they all have shit flavors that will turn you off to DIY. Almost all nicotine vendors sell diluted nicotine that you can just mix with flavors, but it's not a cost-efficient purchase. If you want to save money, buy 120mL of 100mg($19 at nudenicotine) nicotine and dilute it yourself. A gallon of VG is $14.49. Find a few recipes with good feedback here and order the flavors for them from bullcityvapor, gremlindiy, or ecigexpress. If you don't mind the extra work, and want to save a bit more, buy syringes instead of a scale, and clean and reuse the syringes.

Test your water for lead if you are worried about it. That's really the result you care about. There may be small sections of pipe or solder that contaminate the water even if you don't have large sections of lead pipe.

u/Taylor_OD · 8 pointsr/chicago

It cost like $15 to buy a water test. I drink a lot of unfiltered water so I got one. The test said I'm all good. Worth buying and seeing if you should invest in some type of filtration system.

u/OhAbaDis · 8 pointsr/ploompax

A comment I submitted in a different thread:

Awesome! I've had my pax over a year and I'm still loving it. It still hits like a champ and the cleaning is to me easier than its made out to be. The stealthiness of it amazing. I've told a bouncer its a portable battery or an ecig and gotten no questions. Just a heads up the very first time cooking a fresh bowl definitely smells like weed. All vaping smells some, but that first heating and first few hits are by far the strongest. After that is gets much less pungent. If I'm packing it at home before going to a venue I'm nervous about, I'll take the first 2-3 hits at home. Out of a full oven I can get 3-6 good sessions with stirring, depending on the weed and people.

Here's a couple tips I've picked up.

Be careful of the mouthpiece spring. It's deceptively strong and will launch your mouthpiece to dark places. Also, when pushing down the mouthpiece to lock it, the "sweet spot" is juuuuust before all the way down. It's hard to explain. But you can actually push the mouthpiece down too far and it won't always lock. My first time using it I was pissed because it wasn't locking. But I was pushing it too hard and past the lock point. Pushing it down lighter was the answer.

Dental brushes dipped in alcohol work great for scrubbing out the oven and mouthpiece and can be purchased at any store/pharmacy. The lube is food grade propylene glycol and can be purchased at certain stores or online for cheap. Such as Rub a few drops on/inside the mouthpiece tube every time you clean it to keep it from sticking.

When you're cleaning it be careful of getting the temp change button wet. If it gets wet, it will think it's on and the oven will start heating. That sucks if you are cleaning it and don't notice.

I've found its better to Charge the pax right side up with the charger on top. It helps makes sure that no resin leaks up the tube and is more stable.

If you rotate it on its long axis (doing a barrel roll) 3 times, it enters party mode and the front light flashes. This means it won't stop heating if it's kept still. Normally if it's kept still for a few seconds it goes "idle" and stops heating. The flashing light also looks pretty cool. You can also play Simon says against your pax by turning it on its long axis 7 times I think. YouTube has a good pax Simon says video with the steps. Both tricks are great when showing your pax to friends.

u/bdubelyew · 8 pointsr/Wetshaving

I use this test tube rack from Amazon and it suits my needs well.

Edit: the comments from users on Amazon show a lot of pictures with razors in use.

u/Pac_management · 7 pointsr/Homebrewing

They are actually made for soda bottle production. You can usually find big packs for cheap.

u/MachinatioVitae · 7 pointsr/Survival

Hey, thanks! Yes, that's the one I was thinking of. I just couldn't find it. Idk about better though. They're different for sure, but they're both made from bottle preforms, so the tube strength should be the same.

The pocket reel comes with:

  • 1 pocket reel
  • 4 fishing hooks
  • 4 removable sinkers
  • 2 metal spinner lures
  • 3/4" bobber
  • knot guide with directions
  • 45' spool of fishing line

    The one I linked comes with:

  • 1 Heavy duty plastic tube with screw top lid.
  • 24’ of 20# monfilament fishing line
  • 3 #2 Eagle Claw Hooks
  • 3 #4 Eagle Claw Hooks
  • 4 #3 Split Shot Lead Sinkers
  • 4 #7 Split Shot Lead Sinkers
  • 2 Slip Bobbers
  • 2 Attached Bobbers
  • 2 Various colored Jigs

    So, with the pocket reel, you get 4 hooks instead of 6, 1 bobber instead of 2, 4 sinkers instead of 8, metal spinners instead of jigs, but almost twice as much line and a "knot guide".

    Seems like about a wash to me. I should note that I don't have a horse in this race, I've never used either and am not affiliated with either shop. The kit I posted was one I found a month or so ago while looking for the one you posted.

    Personally, I went with neither and just bought some bottle preforms for about a buck a piece, filled a couple with the fishing gear I already had and used the rest for other camping gear: spices/oil for cooking, match case, pill bottles, tinder case, etc.
u/davdev · 7 pointsr/PlantedTank

40 gallons is going to be pushing on what you can accomplish with DIY, so I would avoid going that route, as you wont wind up happy.

As for what you will need, it is really very simple, but not particularly cheap. You need a CO2 tank, a regualtor, bubble counter, diffusor and gas line.

CO2. Go with a 5 or 10 lb tank. If you can find used even better as most places just swap tanks when you fill them, so you get your new shiny aluminum tank, bring it to get filled, they take it and give you a banged up used one back. A 5lb tank should last 3-4 months depending on how many bubbles per second you are pumping

Regulator with Bubble Counter and solenoid, the solenoid is what shuts off flow of CO2 at night, when plugged into a timer. Plants don't utilize CO2 at night, so continuing to pump it into the tank is just wasting gas. Keep it on the same cycle as your lights, or better yet, and hour behind, so it turns on and hour before the lights come on, and off an hour before the lights go off.

Diffuser, you can spend a little or a lot here. I dont really see the need to spend a ton with this part. You do want to see if the unit has a check valve though, and if not, you will need to add one between the bubble counter and diffuser to prevent a back siphoning.

Gas tubing very important you get tubing rated for CO2 gas. Do not use regular air line of the gas will eat right through it

u/daath · 7 pointsr/DIY_eJuice

I would get a cheap precision scale instead of syringes (must have 0.01g precision!). Then a big pack of disposable pipettes.

And bottles. Many bottles. LDPE dripper bottles. Or glass.

u/klundtasaur · 7 pointsr/fountainpens

Depends on what I'm looking for.

Pens For the cheapest deals on readily available imported pens, it's hard to beat Amazon (esp. with Prime Shipping). And of course, there's all the links in the sidebar. But rarer or more exclusive imports are apparently cheaper to acquire at Engeika. I've never used them, though I've heard great things.

Ink Samples The Goulet's have an incredible selection and a really clean website (now with a few bugs, but still aesthetically pleasing), but only 2ml samples. Both Brian Anderson and Todd Nussbaum do 3ml samples, and they also carry Sailor inks (a significant gap in Goulet's coverage). Todd, in particular, is shipping out of AZ, so he's a day or two faster for us impatient west-coasters. Anderson is shipping out of WI, so he's probably closer to you than either the Goulet's or Todd.

Paper Depends on how fancy you want it. My university's bookstore carries Rhodia, so I employ my tax-free discount there. But for really "luxury" papers (as pretentious as that sounds) you can't beat They repackage Japan's Tomoegawa "Tomoe River" paper into notebooks and A5 pads. But mostly I'm writing on the "absorbent-as-paper-towels" shit notepads my work has for free.

Nib tuning/cleaning supplies Almost exclusively at the Goulet's. They have a great selection, sure, but more than that, every single tuning product they sell they have a video teaching you how and when to use it. I did buy a sample tube holder from Amazon instead of the Goulet's, but that's because it holds 50 (to their 40) and I'm already starting into my third 50-tube holder.

u/MemorableCactus · 7 pointsr/funny

u/dannothemanno · 7 pointsr/washingtondc

> Soak the cut off bottle top in the hot water for 30 seconds or so. This will make the plastic pliable enough that you can pull off the intact cap and sealing ring without breaking the seal.

All that work for a 28 cent cap?

u/gogosolar · 7 pointsr/fountainpens

Get yourself a Bulb Syringe for a few bucks from your local drug store or dollar store and try the soak again and then a flush with the bulb syringe. Amazon and pen shops such as Goulet also sell them.Goulet's video about pen flushing.

Next step could be an ultrasonic cleaner

It's pretty easy to clean this.

ESD circuit board brushes:

99.95% Alcohol:

Distilled Water can be used as well, just give it a few days to dry out.

Dip the brushes in the alcohol, don't just add the alcohol to the board, you'll end up using too much.

Make sure to wait an hour or so to guarantee that its all evaporated.

Another vote here for the propylene glycol available on Amazon. This is what I got, works beautifully.

u/zosoleary · 6 pointsr/ResearchMarkets

holy crap this is scary as fuck! please please please be careful. it's very obvious you don't know what you are doing. remember 2 grams is 2,000 pills. don't try to eyeball doses or keybumps or anything like that. first step: get a milligram scale!!!! you said earlier you have a gemini 20, that's would work just fine. then you are going to need a graduated cylinder, and some PG. i do 2mg per 1 ml of pg. so i weigh out 100mg of etizolam, carefully measure out 50 ml of pg then mix the two in a vial. just shake it hard core then let it rest overnight then shake it some more (takes it a while to dissolve in PG). make sure to store the vial outside of sunlight because that damages the etizolam (i wrapped electrical tape around my travel vial). then get a transfer pipette or oral syringe and make your dose (half a ml for 1 pill, 1ml for 2 pills). tastes horrible, best to put it in a drink or have a chaser handy. PLEASE BE CAREFUL!!!! it's hard to measure out under half a ml accurately so 10mg a ml means you HAVE to do at least 5 at a time. it's just a good recipe to extreme and dangerous addiction and would make it even harder to taper off.

u/PM_Me_Your_Clones · 6 pointsr/electronic_cigarette

If you do it like that, I can see your math. However, if you do it like this:!product/prd12/3738421821/120ml-sample-100mg-ml-nic-html (Or Bull City or ECX or Gremlin, etc. - let's call it $50 in flavoring)

You can make ~4L/4000ml of 3mg/ml for ~$150 or a little under $0.04/ml, so ~$4.50 per 120ml with supplies left over.

Maybe I'm mistaken in thinking ~$150 isn't large scale but I'm sure many people on here spend at least that much in a six month period (five 250ml of Blue Dot will run you $187).

u/thefourthdr · 6 pointsr/electronic_cigarette


  1. I don't recommend a kit, but that's just me.
  2. Mix by weight. Buy this scale The 500g one, not the others. You want 0.01g precision.
  3. Don't buy random flavors. Pick one or two juices over at that sound good to you and have a good rating. Buy the flavors to make those.
  4. Buy your VG and PG here. and
  5. Get some pipettes. Plastic Transfer Pipettes 1ml, Graduated, Pack of 500
  6. Get good nicotine. I like Carolina Xtracts and Nude Nicotine
  7. Read everthing here.
  8. Read the everything here.
  9. Read eveything here.
  10. Watch this.
  11. Wear protective gloves if you buy high percentage nicotine solution!
  12. Enjoy your freedom. You're right, it is fun to do. And easy. My wife calls it vaking :)
u/pyr02k1 · 6 pointsr/DIY_eJuice

On that starter kit you mentioned... It's fine, but it isn't the best route if you think you might stick with this.

First up, read up on mixing by weight. /u/Botboy141 has a fantastic write up on it. It ends up being cheaper and faster long term versus mixing with syringes. Take into account that you should use different syringes for each flavor and you'll have to clean them after use... The cleaning murders the time mixing and that kit doesn't have many syringes, so you'll be cleaning a lot.

A break down for you on mixing by weight... It isn't 100% I'd bet, but it should be close enough.
Scale: 16.99 - this is the one I have, but the auto shut off is a friggin annoyance. Pick up the one Botboy141 recommends for the extra 14 or so dollars. So let's go with 30
Pipettes: 10.00 for 500 1ml.
10 for 200 3ml (you can probably find a better price) -
Dispensing bottles x2: 7.00
Pg: 13.00
Vg: 13.00
Nicotine: 100mg/120ml 19.00 50 30ml ldpe bottles: 11.00

$113, call it 130 with some shipping here and there.

Now add flavors, assuming you get 50 bucks of 8ml vials from wizard labs and you're running closer to 200. This will get you a good bunch of juice and the next time around you'll probably get 4oz bottles of your favorite flavors and maybe some more pg vg nic and possibly pipettes. It's worth the money, but syringes will be cheaper up start costs. You'd probably save about 70 bucks to start, but it'll cost you in frustration and time, which isn't worth the pain from all I remember with them.
Edit: I say wizard only because of the sample size of the vials... You can use bull city, tfa and lorann direct for 4oz and up on a bunch, or any other vendor really. But 50 in wizard with shipping will probably get you 25 or 30 vials.

Syringes will take away the scale and dispensing bottles and pipettes, so 60 bucks actually, and you'll add about 30 back in a bunch of 1ml, a few 3 or 5 and a couple of 10 for pg/vg and14ga blunt needles.

Hopefully that helps a bit. I can reformat it later on the computer if need be.

It's pretty easy to make phytosomes actually. Just liquify some lecithin (equal amount to the amount of substance you're trying to prepare) by letting it sit in warm water than blending it. Add your desired substance to the mixture, then pour some of the solution (I think doing small amounts at a time works better than doing the whole thing at once) into the ultrasonic cleaner, turn it on and stir it as it is running.

Bam! You have your own phytosome complexes :)

So, for funsies I tested the Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid with these paper pH strips and got a pH of ~5. Paula's website lists a pH of 3.5-3.9. The strips were effective at testing my other products, so why is the pH of the BHA Liquid so far off? Is there something about the product that makes pH testing more complicated, or does this product not work with paper strips? Or did I get a bad batch?

E: Here are some pictures I took of the test strip.

u/HCx · 6 pointsr/educationalgifs

Yes. Quite easily. The relationship is the following

If i have 1lb of force and want to lift something that weighs 4lbs i'll need two pistons right?

piston A with 1lb of force will have a surface area (pi*r^2) of idk, .5sqin.

piston B with 4lbs of load that you want to move will need a surface area 4x higher than piston A. so 2 sqin in this case.

The problem is when you move piston A 2 inches piston B (with the 4lb load) will only move .5 inches.

This scales linearly so if you want to lift a car with 1lb of force you can. but you better be able to move the piston a long long way to get the job done.

EDIT: a kit like this with some tubing will give you everything you need to demonstrate this at home. I don't know the tube diameters but you can measure them and figure out the ratio pretty easily.

This one used to be cheaper on amazon. I think you can look it up on camel camel camel to see its price fluctations. It's been recommended quite often on here over the years. If you have the patience maybe you can wait until the price drops on this bad boy. But most of these jewlery cleaners, at least the ones with the similar dimensions, are rebrands. Kind of like those TDS and PH meters you get for your pool, there's a ton of them on amazon and ebay etc. most will perform fairly similar. (you get what you pay for).

u/HashSlingingSlashur · 5 pointsr/DIY_eJuice
u/xxtidariusxx · 5 pointsr/Vaping

all it takes is a bit of simple math. you can buy everything you need aside from the liquid nicotine on amazon. i myself use 100%vg juice so i dont buy pg at all but a large bottle of vg will run you about 20 to 25 dollars, 1 gallon for me is 22 at the moment. you can also find packs of empty bottles for around 10 bucks, then youll need measuring syringes for mixing, flavor drops and the nicotine all of which are linked below.

i would just mix small batches first if you arent sure what a juice would taste like after your done then mix a full bottle, this way you can experiment with flavor mixes and see what you can create.

for a 100 ml bottle its really easy youll just need to figure out how much nic to put in, i vape at 6% nic so i measure out 94 ml of vg and the last remaining 6 ml i put in as the nicotine, after that the base is done, then just drop in the flavor drops, shake it like crazy, let it settle for a bit and boom juice done.

there are also some sites out there with premade mixture recipes that you can find and follow

    Before you make your decision on using an alternative take heed of this warning from Ploom (source: some site called "Rich Malley's blog", but it seems like a legit CSR Reply):

Well, IF the brass used has lead in it (not all brass does, and it is used less and less in brass) the small amount of mineral scale tends to form a nice barrier preventing it leaching into the water. A few flushes should work. If you are worried, test it.

u/_treefingers_ · 4 pointsr/ploompax

Grab some Zen Pipe Cleaners
Grab a bottle of Propylene Glycol (lube for the mouthpiece)

u/v64 · 4 pointsr/ploompax

This happens when the mouthpiece loses its connection to the slot it's plugged into, making the Pax think you took the mouthpiece out. This can happen if a lot of resin has built up on the mouthpiece stem.

To fix, clean your mouthpiece stem really well. Cover the stem in the Pax provided mouthpiece lubricant (or if you want to buy it in bulk yourself, it's simply food grade Propylene Glycol) and plug it in.

To prevent build up in the future, never store your Pax mouthpiece side down. When I charge it after a session, I leave it mouthpiece up and plug the adapter onto it upside down. This way, the oils don't run down and gunk up the mouthpiece and stem.

DON'T put alcohol in there to clean it out. Ploom advises against it, and I disregarded that advice and ended up having to send mine in for an exchange (credit to Ploom's customer service though, I was able to get a new unit in less than a week, no extra charge).

Do you ever plan on doing 5 gallon batches? If you have the space it will be more cost effective to just go for a full size keging system. Mini kegs are going to cost you roughly what a new 5 gallon keg will.

That said if it's only a one-off thing you could use some 2 liter bottles and get yourself a co2 tank and regulator and a carbonation cap and force carb that way, it won't be on "tap" but it will be force carbonated.. and you can keep it carbonated if you leave the cap on and top off the bottle with co2 each time you pour from it.

If you have nothing then you'll need a regulator I have this one: (taprite t742hp primary double gauge co2 regulator, brass

A co2 tank, something like this: (5lb co2 tank- new aluminum cylinder with cga320 valve

Some 5/16 tubing l, and a ball lock gas disconnect like this (5/16" gas line assembly - ball lock

And a carbonation cap like this : (stainless carbonation cap counter pressure bottle filling with 5/16" barb,co2 coupling to carbonate soda beer fruit juice water

I also have this regulator for my mobile mini keg set-up: Ultimate CO2 Regulator works with 5 types of CO2 tanks (0-50psi)
It works great and I use it with a soda stream co2 tank which are a little pricey for how much co2 you get but they're convenient and available everywhere. This makes a nice compact system since you don't have the big regulator and big co2 tank.

OP here. I have an old vine zin (and a few others) that I started fermenting last year. After primary, I’ve degassed, put it through malo, racked to clean carboy, degassed again, hit it with sulfites, and let it age. 10-11months later I still have a noticeable bit of carbonization left in the wine. I’m oaking it now, and hoping to bottle right before thanksgiving. Any ideas how I can kill off this carbonization? I’m at the point now where I’m agitating the carboy every other night, and occasionally hitting it with a vac-u-vin. Has anyone ever tried magnetic agitation? Looking for any recommendations that will help make this wine less lively when served. Thanks!

u/besthuman · 3 pointsr/microdosing

Unable? Not so my friend! You just need to keep it sorta roomtemp as I understand. I personally keep mine in a fridge, but that's unnecessary I think. I use a small dark glass bottle, that holds 30ml - which I drop a tab into, and then use a blunted syringe to extract 1.5ml–3ml per dose (depending how much I want that day).

Volumetric is a WAY WAY better way of doing it than cutting up tabs. I'm sure if your bedroom is even a remotely normal room temp your little bottle will be just fine in a drawer or something.

The dark glass bottle, and the syringes (science/non medical type) are available on amazon for not too much money.

— Here is the type of bottle I have (these are very very nice, you could probably get away with a cheaper one, but hey, it's nice to have nice things :)


Math is easy. If you put a tab say a 100ug tab into 30ml of water, then if you take 3ml of that water, you would be getting 10% of that tab. 5—15% is usually a good amount, and you might find that less works better for you.

The ALD52 I have is 125ug per tab. So 125ug in 30ml of distilled water means that 3ml of solution equals 12.5ug of a dose - and often, I take half of that, so only 1.5ml of soultion.

I didnt use any cleaner because they didnt need the extra help. All of the pens were inked at some point this semester, and still started immediately. My process was to run the converter and feed under tap water until I didnt see any ink coming out, and then to run it in the USC. Using this process I was able to get all of the sections and converters clear. The reason I picked up a USC was because after cleaning the Prera section with tap water, I could still see ink left over in several pockets and knew it would dry there. About 9 minutes in the USC and it was sparkling clear.

u/cincity · 3 pointsr/homestead

I'm also on a cistern and use commercial whole-house filters in 2 stages. Stage 1 is a "pre-clean" sediment filter and stage 2 is a carbon filter that helps remove cysts and odors. The pre-filtering helps the more expensive carbon filters last longer. I also have an automatic chlorinator and contact tank for added disinfection (could also use UV) and a RO filter for drinking water. The RO is overkill since water tests fine from the tap (good idea to test periodically!), but peace of mind and all. To maintain a good flow rate, I use 2 filters in parallel for each stage (4 total). It's all easily put together with PVC. I don't have first flush and water can get pretty dirty, but after filtering it's very clean and odor free. Filters typically last about 3 months before the pressure drops too low (for 2 people, so maybe 1 month for you?) and have to be replaced. High efficiency sink and shower fittings help reduce water usage and the effects of the lower pressure. I have the pump run up to 60psi to max out the filter life.

Use 99% isopropyl alcohol (I use this stuff) to degrease the places on which you'll be putting the adhesive bits.

Personally, I spray down a cloth or paper towel with glass cleaner (Windex) then add a few sprays of alcohol and use that for most frame cleaning. Then for things which need to be grease-free I follow up with straight alcohol on a clean paper towel.

I use much stronger degreasers on metal-only parts, such as when cleaning the drivetrain parts when off of the bike. But for anywhere around plastics, alcohol is my go-to. It will not hurt the epoxy in carbon fiber.

Yeah that's not too bad. Of course you can get 1000ml of concentrate for $45! We bought 120ml of concentrate from three sources (1, 2, 3) to compare and she didn't notice a big difference between them. They've all been in the freezer since and still taste fine 3 years later (actually one of them is completely gone and the other 2 are getting pretty low).

I just started with an online calculator and went from there; it's easy to get to whatever % you normally vape at.

I found out quickly that plastic syringes suck - they wear out and the eliquid melts the markings off. So I got a few glass syringes off of ebay (though really I've only ever needed one).

Initially I was super-careful with the nicotine concentrate as it can be fatal in really small doses, but after handling it a bit I realized it's actually very safe and easy to handle. Unless you squirt it in your eye or mouth you aren't going to have a problem - but you definitely need to keep it away from children and pets.

Then a few glass dropper bottles, PG and VG.

Whenever she's getting low she'll order a few different flavorants (usually from here) in 10ml bottles. I rarely mix flavors as it's simpler not to - just dump a full 10ml bottle into a dropper bottle, add 4-6ml of nicotine concentrate, then around 20ml each of PG/VG. Let it sit a week and it's ready to use.

  • Essential Depot PG and VG: $26 for 2560ml
  • 120ml 100mg/ml Nicotine: $19
  • 8ml concetrates: $1.50 each

    Just need 2 1ml syringes with 14g needles and 1 5ml or 10ml syringe with a 14g needle, some bottles (which you can reuse glass bottles), and you're good to go.
u/goatnapper · 3 pointsr/DIY_eJuice

First, watch this, then come back: How to make your own E-Liquid : Mixing by Weight - DIY Tutorial I hate youtube tutorials, and I still recommend this, so seriously, watch it.

Now, a warning. You can spend a tiny amount to start DIY, or you can just take the plunge and spend a good chunk, but be set for a while and the cost per ml drops even more.

So you'll need supplies. Other than nicotine and flavorings, Amazon works pretty well.

  • Pipettes For adding nicotine, everything else we'll put in squeeze bottles.
  • Scale
  • VG
  • PG

    I put my PG and VG into some squeeze bottles I found at wal-mart for $0.97. Makes dispensing them super easy (just like in the video). You can also find them on Amazon for slightly more, but Walmart is on the way to work, so I just stopped there.

    I put my flavors into dripper bottles, which I got from Heartland Vapes, but that only works if you want 100+. Free shipping is at $75, so I also threw flavors into my orders, since I'd need them anyway. Personally, I started with single flavor juices that I knew I'd like. I ordered a lot from MtBakerVapor, and most of their flavors are just single flavor FlavorWest (FW) stuff, so I grabbed them. I made those for a month, then I started buying more flavors (like my favorite, TFA Chai). Now I'm adding more flavors into my juices, judging on what I think would work well (it doesn't always). Start simple, then build on what you learn.

    Buy some nicotine from your preferred vendor, if you want nicotine in your juice.

    Then wait impatiently while USPS loses your package in San Diego, CA, during which you can download the calculator and experiment with it. The bottom calculator on the side bar is amazing. Now you're going, "Crap, I gotta weigh my liquids!". Well, not really. You can take the specific gravities off the manufacturer data sheets (sometimes there, sometimes right, don't trust the ones from FW), google them, or ask here and someone probably has them. Or, you can use the built-in weights for PG and VG, and then set your flavors to 1ml = 1g. It's close enough.

    Most of all, remember to have fun.

    Quick tip: Better not enough flavor than too much. Too much flavoring mutes the flavor, not enhances, and spearmint burns your lips when you add too much. You can always add more, you can't take away.
u/lite_acker · 3 pointsr/electronic_cigarette

Keep the amount of sweetener low or zero and it will have the biggest impact on coil life. Low flavor will help in general, but some flavors hardly contribute to coil gunk at all, so it depends on which flavors you use. I haven't noticed any difference in the rate I change coils using 50/50 and 70/30, and I use both regularly in different setups.

BTW, it sounds like you are trying to decide between a finished nicotine base, 50/50 or 70/30 with maybe 6mg/ml nic added already, for example... Sorry if I misunderstand. That way does work but I do it the other way around, and mix my flavor base, then add nicotine to suit the order. If you buy VG, PG, and 100mg/ml nic each in its own bottle, you will have infinite flexibility with every bottle you make.

It's cheap too:

u/Absurdulon · 3 pointsr/funny
u/Skithy · 3 pointsr/DIY_eJuice

It's way, way easier to mix with 100% PG nicotine solution unless you're going for max VG! Just get some pipettes, if you don't wanna have to clean shit. They're cheap and disposable. Five bucks for 100, free shipping at Amazon.

I've found using eJuiceMeUp, it's just way more simple to calculate crap out using 100% PG nic. Almost all flavours are PG and whatnot.

u/just_some_Fred · 3 pointsr/Warhammer40k

for moving paint around you can use a drinking straw, just dip it into the pot a little, then cover the end with your thumb, move it to the palette. if you're feeling fancy you can get some pipettes

I use about a 1:1 ratio on my palette, and I get a couple hours good use out of it just using a cheap plastic watercolor palette from Michael's. You can also make up a wet palette, I know a lot of folks like these.

for even longer lasting paint, or for wet blending, you can get some acrylic retarder

Does Nonsterile matter with Pipettes?

I realized it after ordering, it's still sunday for an hour, can cancel, should I though?

u/FlyingSMonster · 3 pointsr/modelmakers

Yeah, I make sure to not shake my bottles, I stir them instead. This keeps paint from accumulating on the top of the bottle cap, preventing it from drying the lid shut as well as preserving the paint longer.

I also buy a ton of these pipettes as well as these medicine cups every few months. I always transfer my paint to a little cup to mix / thin it.

Another tip to extend a paints longevity is to never place thinned paint back into the jar, as it can cause some paints to gel and become useless over time.

u/asciiaardvark · 3 pointsr/fountainpens

If you want to keep your rings clean all the time, you can invest in an inexpensive ultrasonic cleaner. Most of them use a powder-based cleaner that you mix with water. They don't use much water, and the solution will last a long time unless you're cleaning 20 pieces a day. If your well water is too hard, just use bottled water.

Mine was a bit more, but you can purchase a good ultrasonic cleaner for ~$40:

u/loxandchreamcheese · 3 pointsr/Invisalign

Magnasonic. There was one that was like $5 cheaper, but I think I picked this one because it has a timer? I figured $40 is nothing compared to the cost of all of the orthodontics, so I splurged. I use it with 3 minute denture cleaning tabs and it has been incredible. I’m going away this weekend and I am so sad that I will be leaving it behind (I could pack it in my carryon, but that’s a bit much for 2 nights). It works wonders - I swear my trays look as clean as the first day I put them on when I pull them out of the ultrasonic. I do 180-280 seconds usually (it has a timer).

u/HoustonIV · 3 pointsr/electronic_cigarette

First: Soak in cheap rubbing alcohol (remove o-rings first).

Second: Filled with hot water, dish soap and vinegar.

Third: Toothbrush and soapy/vinegar water from ultrasonic cleanser.

Fourth: Empty ultrasonic cleaner and fill with clean, distilled water. Put your rinsed RDA pieces back in the cleaner for max time.

Fifth: Rinse and dry thoroughly.

Edit: spelling... ugh

Yes, there are those but you mentioned filters. I find the big bottles of water to be overwhelmingly more common, and you can just flip a coin as to whether the company that bottles it follow regulations. I'm actually taking this back from meiguo to make sure the company my school buys from is okay, as I've noticed the plastic circles you punch through have become almost too easy to open recently and one was already opened when it was delivered.

First Alert WT1 Drinking Water Test Kit

u/battles · 2 pointsr/chicago

This kit will let you test for all sorts of common contaminants, including lead.

u/optimisma · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

I don't know how well I can answer your questions, as I'm new to lead issues and abatement. You've probably educated yourself on a lot of what I'm going to say, but I'm going to throw it all in this comment, anyway.

I live in a 110 year old house that is basically a ball of lead. The plumbing had lead joints, the service line is old and lead, the windows have lead, the doors have lead, the walls have lead, and the city is concerned that our water mains are shedding lead. And now, my child has a very slightly elevated lead level. Prompted by her most recent blood test, we are attempting a sensible lead abatement plan for our home.

First, figure out where the lead is. You can pick up water testing kits as well as swabs for surfaces. Once you know where the lead is, you can assess your risk and choose an abatement plan.

For instance, we have a small amount of lead in our water, which is likely a consequence of the service line. We got a bid for replacing it, and that was about $10k, plus the cost of fixing the yard that would be torn up. We went with a 10 year filter for the whole house, and that was about $900 including tax and installation.

Use the surface swabs on your windows that were installed before 1980, and if you have woodwork that was painted white, check that, too. It became popular to paint dark woodwork white in the 50s/60s to brighten up houses, and people used lead paint. We have solid wood doors and a ton of trim that is absolutely smothered in many coats of paint, and sure enough, it's super leady.

With windows, the act of opening and closing the windows can cause friction on the paint, which produces inhalable dust. If your family isn't experiencing significantly elevated lead levels, you have the option to simply wipe down the windows with a damp cloth to remove the dust. If you are more concerned, have the budget, or just want new windows, you can replace them. Check to see if your local municipality has a lead abatement grant for windows. In my city, they offer a $350/window grant to replace windows that test positive for lead (along with a few other qualifiers), and that really puts a dent in that cost.

With other painted surfaces, you're likely to be fine with encapsulation, which is a fancy way of saying painting over it. Lead is only really dangerous if you inhale the dust or eat the chips, so if you paint over it, it can't create dust. This will likely mean that you'll need to do a little scraping, which will obviously create dust, so you need to use a quality mask, and then clean like mad when you are done. Wet mop, dry dusting/sweeping is not good enough.

I'm in the process of restoring the woodwork because I prefer a stained finish, and for all the trim that isn't especially decorative or historically significant, I'm just replacing it. For our lovely doors, I sent them out to be dip stripped because it just wasn't worth the risk of my daughter sucking in all the dust while I removed the paint.

Because I have a young child, I'm not fucking around with lead, but the majority of people with lead paint in their homes are going to be just fine if they don't sand lead paint, carefully wipe up the dust with a wet cloth in areas that have lead paint (like windows), and prime/paint over the lead paint.

u/jaredharley · 2 pointsr/Denver

Yeah, the "flammable tap water" thing was from up in my area, Weld County. The situation was that all of these folks used well water for their houses, and they had higher-than-normal levels of methane gas in their water. It was a big hit with the local media, but the kerfluffle died out not too long afterwards.

I think you'll find a lot of information if you check out Denver Water's page on Water Quality - they provide information on the treatment process and the results of their tests. You can probably also request the water test results in print (In Greeley, we get them once a year with our water bills).

All in all, I've lived here a long time, and I've never had a problem with our water anywhere. In my opinion, it seems like municipalities in Colorado are much more concerned with water and water quality than in other places in the US I've lived previously. Heck, Coors even advertises that their beer is brewed with fresh "cold Rocky Mountain water"!

Feel safe with your water. If you're still concerned (or want to prove to your mom that the water's safe), you can always buy a water testing kit, although I don't know how accurate or effective they are, never having used one myself.

u/RealHot_RealSteel · 2 pointsr/Showerthoughts

As far as you know.

When's the last time you tested your tap water?

u/jeremiahs_bullfrog · 2 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

All? Every store in my area has a water refill station. In my area it's near the coffee section. I'm not sure how much it costs, but it's way cheaper than buying bottled water.

That being said, why not just get water from the tap? If you're worried your water might be unsafe (most likely it's just fine), then test it. A quick search found this affordable test kit, which will tell you if you need to get a more comprehensive test done. Most likely you'll be well within safe standards and can safely use your city water.

Personally, I use a filter at home because I don't like the taste of our water. We have hard water, and there are still traces of something after our water softener. Our water is perfectly safe to drink, but a filter makes it much more palatable, so we use one. It's way cheaper than bottled water and way more convenient.

Hey! I love the purple pax! The only accessories I use are rubbing alcohol, cotton pipe cleaners, and alcohol wipes. Oh, and lubricant. I did an Internet search for the lubricant, it's propylene glycol. I found a pint of it on amazon for $8. (That will last forever.)

Here is a video on how to apply the lubricant. I tend to lube it after every cleaning.

Every pax comes with a small amount of cleaning supplies, but they really didn't last long for me. Cleaning is a little tedious, but it vapes so much more easily when it's clean. Here is a good video about how to clean it.

I find that 10 days is the absolute longest I can go without cleaning it, and that's with daily use. And honestly, I should probably tend to it more like once a week.

They also have quarts for $12-13 and gallons for $33. It's USP and a highly recommended brand. I wouldn't trust a PG "solution" as that implies there's other ingredients. Also, you want USP as that's at least food grade or Pharma grade. If it doesn't say USP, it's probably industrial grade, which means lots of impurities.

I have been getting my PG and VG from Amazon. Its cheap and if you have prime it gets there super fast.

I use the essential depot VG, and PG. I get them quarts at a time for like 11-13 bucks apiece and that shit lasts a long time. You will go through more VG than PG usually.

I used to get my nicotine from wizard labs but I recently started using nude nicotine, I recommend it. In the DIY sub youll see a shit ton of vendors and a bunch of brands people swear by. Thats the part that can be overwhelming.

you can get bottles so many fucking places, if you just want a few amazon will do you right, wizard labs has em. Lately I have been just getting them from fasttech cause they are decent bottles (plastic) and they are cheap as fuck. when searching for bottles a good tip to have is 1/2oz bottles are 15mls and 1oz bottles are 30mls, is a pretty awesome place. is nice too.

For just starting you dont need much, PG, VG, NIc, Bottles, Flavors, Get a couple of 1ml and 3ml Syringes, and some 14g needle tips for VG based shit, and 18G tips for PG based shit.

My mixes are mostly VG, so I get my nicotine in VG Carrier base. I think I have pretty much covered most beginner info. I hope you decide to check it out its pretty rewarding and fucking fun.

This is the advice that /u/gzprime gave me:
>I like the Rit Dymore (has to be the Dyemore version) for a few different reasons. The number one reason is convenience, it is pre-mixed and there for ready to go. It has far less warnings and caustic information than the iDye Poly. I find the iDye Poly hard to blend in small batches and have been having better results as of late withe Rit Dyemore.

>I'm pretty comfortable with dyeing keycaps. You can see some of my work here: ( You'll want the Rit Dyemore that comes in a bottle, premixed in the black color. I would use disposable pipettes to measures 1-3ml of dye for the initial bath/shade (

>If they're PBT caps, you can bring the water to soft boil, add the caps and then just babysit them until you get the shade you're looking for. Then I'd use the pipette to add additional dye for the next shade and babyit that as well, repeating the process until you've got all the shades you're looking for.

>I'd also strongly suggest starting off with a series of test caps so you can get the timing, concentration, and process down pat. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions and good luck!

If you're looking to do a gradient type dye with one color like what I did, I would strongly recommend using both as little water as possible and as little dye as possible for your first shade. The longer the cap is in the dye bath the more even and consistent the color, but the darker it gets. Use lots of test caps to figure out the exact length of time to consistently get the shade you're looking for before proceeding. And I've found tapping the strainer up and down so that the caps jiggle around in the dye bath without being lifted out of it helps to make the color look more consistent.

I use about three big droppers full of Trader Joe's tea tree oil (~9 ml) in a whole bottle of Suave Naturals conditioner (I usually use coconut, but I'm going to buy one of the no-protein ones when I run out), and shake it up. I massage a huge handful into my scalp and comb it through my hair (fine, curly, not very porous) and rinse with cool water, and my hair stays fresh smelling and soft, not greasy or flat. Give it a try, but maybe only mix a few drops of tea tree oil into a half cup of conditioner to start with, just in case you don't like it. You don't want to ruin a whole bottle of conditioner if the tea tree oil doesn't work for you!

I also use a tiny bit tea tree oil in the spray gel I use for styling, to keep it fresh smelling. It's a pretty versatile essential oil!

u/twisted_dick · 2 pointsr/Vaping

Hey man, I would love to help you quit smoking and didn't notice the first time I commented that you didn't have any experience with vaping. So I'm going to try to put together a list here of what you need to do to start vaping for very little money.

  1. A mod. I am suggesting this mod because it is very simple and fairly cheap.

    This is another option for you.

    I love my Icare, but you will need to use high (24-36) mg ejuice with it, whereas with the ego you would need 12-24 mg/ml.

  2. Eliquid making basics.

    OPTIONAL: flavoring. If you want flavoring just ask in a reply I'll let you know what to get based on your tastes, but it's not necessary and you're trying to go cheap.

    This is the recipe for making flavorless, 12 mg juice.

    You can make an account at that site and adapt that recipe to be higher or lower nicotine if you want.

    I know this seems a lot more expensive than the Ryo cigarettes, but trust me, this makes like a year or two worth of liquid and the mods I suggested have really cheap coils. Please believe me, this is worth every penny of the investment, you will never regret it. If you need help with mixing your first batch of eliquid, go to r/diy_ejuice and look at the new mixer thread in the sidebar. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask me, but comment it cause I don't get message notifications on my phone app.

u/HedgehogKnits · 2 pointsr/fountainpens

I recommend this and these
It’s a set of vials and syringes. I would recommend getting a vial holder as well. That way, you have all the vials in one places and are not as likely to spill. The vials are nice because you can test small batch mixtures. Label the tops of the vials and keep a notebook. Rhodia is good or something else that can show off sheen. This way, you can more down the vial designation, the proportions, the inks used and what the resulting color looks like.

Another thing you would want to learn about is color therapy because a cool yellow mixed with a warm blue will give you a different green than a warm yellow mixed with a cool blue. Rot dye has a great mixing chart that is a wonderful resource for color mixing.

Beyond that, different inks interact and react in sometimes unexpected ways when mixed, which is another reason to have small vials to see what the reactions are and if the ink start to separate or do something else unusual.

u/clockspot · 2 pointsr/fountainpens

u/MemoryEbeling · 2 pointsr/fountainpens

I get mine from Amazon, but I also use a lot of tubes. Instead of inking up my pens from bottles, I only use sample vials (or something like a TWSBi inkwell for my larger pens). It's a great way to avoid contamination of your ink. We live in a pretty moldy area, so I"m always concerned about fuzz on the pens syndrome.

Note: there are other types of tubes that are on eBay, but these cryotubes are by far the best. The other clear ones can't have 5ml unless you fill it to the brim, making a mess of things. These tubes are exactly like the ones sold on Goulet pens, only it has blue lids instead of clear.

If you'd like a rack for your sample vials, here's a link to the one that I purchased. It is identical to hte ones sold on Goulet.

u/cleberm · 2 pointsr/fountainpens

You can buy them from Goulet pens, they have a 40 vials one.

I found this 50 vial holder, which is the same thing but bigger capacity. It works perfectly. (mine is almost full... I think I went overboard with it).

u/probably_your_wife · 2 pointsr/fountainpens

100 for $9 vs 10 for $3 (+ $4 shipping) at Goulet. Comes out to 9 cents a piece vs 71 cents (with shipping) at Goulet. But remember they are literally on the slow boat from China from eBay!

You may also like this holder:

It is less than half the cost on Amazon

Both of these products are identical to what Goulet sells.

BTW I LOVE GOULET and do most of my purchasing from them! Always like to support the local community :)

u/Mixels · 2 pointsr/fountainpens

This unit is pretty similar to the Goulet model, except it holds 50 samples instead of 40 and is only $6:

u/gingermonkey1 · 2 pointsr/fountainpens

I use a vial rack from amazon it was around 5.99 and holds 50 vials.

ETA link and state price is now $6.09

I also bought some tiny round stickers. I put one on top of each sample vial and put a little ink on the sticker. Makes it easier to find a certain color.

I work with ultrasonic plastic welders and cutters. You can find welding quality ultrasonic stacks on ebay for relatively low prices (these are 700W approximately). Here. Here. Here.

You can also try to buy crystal stacks directly. These are usually designed for use in ultrasonic cleaning baths (50W approximately). Here. Here.

Alternatively you can try buying a consumer grade ultrasonic stain remover Here or an ultrasonic cleaning bath Here

Also, good luck, at least the systems I work with are irritatingly sensitive, especially when it comes to the design of the knife or tool.

u/Papacrown · 2 pointsr/wicked_edge

I bought my fiancé a ultrasonic jewelry cleaner for her ring from amazon and I stuck my month old Merkur in there and it came out brand new after about 5 mins.

My DE is usually almost completely white with soap scum after every shave, and I even rinse it with alcohol once I'm done.

Here's the link, we used about a teaspoon of mild dish detergent to go with it.

u/FluffyUnlinked · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

I used this one, and it got the job done pretty well. Usually, ultrasonic cleaners that are sufficient enough for casual use are under $50, while more "professional grade" or "industrial" ones will cost more than that. As for the process, it's tedious, but simple. I disassembled the switches until I got something looking like this, then I organized the parts into piles. I then washed each respective part pile by putting them in the cleaner and submerging it in water, and adding a very little amount of dish soap (about a quarter of a teaspoon). I ran the parts through the cleaner twice. To rinse them off, use distilled water so there are no water impurities left on the parts after the water evaporates. Finally, I waited for the parts to dry, I click modded them, and I put them back together.

Also, I'll head to the /r/olkb question thread to inquire about the Preonic case.

This is an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner its under 30$ and works really well, you can use this to clean all your vape stuff and it takes very little effort.

I use this Magnasonic US cleaner. It does a decent job but I can't recommend it. I've had to repair it once (because of this!) and it is limited to 480sec (8min) maximum cycle. I usually run it two or three times for cleaning atty's.

u/vinnycordeiro · 2 pointsr/fountainpens

It says that it have just 3 minutes cycles, that's too low. I'd recommend a cleaner with at least 8 minutes cycle, like this one: , which isn't that much expensive after all.

u/cryospam · 2 pointsr/mead

You say that it has an acidic taste, but is it really acidic? Time to bust out your old chemistry set! You can get a set of litmus strips on Amazon for only 4 bucks which will tell you if it is actually acidic, or if you are just tasting some weird flavor aspects (like too much citrus).

If it is truly acidic you have a few options. You can blend it with a more alkaline mead, or you can add some calcium carbonate mix it up until fully dissolved (I siphon around 1/2 gallon of mead from a 6.5 gallon carboy, mix 1 tablespoon into that, and re-add that to the rest, then stir) and let it settle for a day, and test the PH again, rinse and repeat until you're at where you want to be, if it's really acidic, you can do 2 tablespoons.

u/a_horse_with_no_tail · 2 pointsr/AsianBeauty

I ordered it yesterday, but I won't have a way to test the pH...

Actually, I'll buy some strips to test this product is someone can point me in the direction of some that don't suck. I can't seem to find the ones that OP used though. Would these work?

I also tried to pH test my CeraVe cleanser, but I don't know how that works since it's a gel.

After doing a search on here, it looks like my pH readings are way off. Any ideas?

Andalou Naturals Acai + White Tea Oil Free Moisturizer: It's lightweight, non-greasy, doesn't contain fatty alcohols (pore-clogging for some) and has great ingredients (antioxidants, anti-irritants & skin-repairing agents). I really like it.

New Purchases:

Devita Natural Skin Care Acne Solution Pads: I found these on iHerb. I was excited about the ingredients. Unfortunately, the pH is 5 according to my pH strips so it's NOT an effective BHA. I'll use these on my body and I will not repurchase.

GoW Salicylic Acid 2% Pads: I use these nightly to exfoliate. These are gentle (slight, transient tingle) and super moisturizing. The pH is 4 according to my pH strips so it's an effective BHA. I like them so far.

GoW Majik Anti-Popup Blemish Gel: I bought this because I'm curious about Azeloyl Glycine (a derivative of Azelaic Acid) and Niacinamide. I'm not sure about the coconut cream for my oily, acne-prone skin. I'll use it as a nightly spot treatment to deter blemishes.

GoW Enriched Oat Facial Serum: I bought this because my skin responds well to DIY oat flour masks when irritated. I'll use this to an an anti-inflammatory serum after MUAC chemical peels.

MUAC 25% Mandelic Acid Peel: I can't wait to try this to fade PIH from acne. It should be gentle and effective on my deep brown skin (Fitzpatrick V). I think it'll help acne as well. I'll use it weekly for the first two peels then use it every four days.

JJ Labs Skin Solutions Vitamin C Serum 25% with Hyaluronic Acid: I bought this from Etsy after seeing it on an Into the Gloss 'Top Shelf' post. It has a light gel-like texture, is non-greasy and moisturizing. The pH is 3 according to my pH strips so it's an effective vitamin C product. I'll use this this nightly.

u/TomVee65 · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

2 litre soda bottles actually are shipped as preforms that can be expanded before they are filled. I guess heating them up without pressure returns them towards their original size?

u/JustPandering · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

I built this for about $20 (not including the erlenmeyer and the stir bar).

I got the cigar box a while back at a second hand store.

Here's the USB powered PC fan I used:

I chose a usb fan so that I could power it with an android usb phone charger and not screw around with splicing wires.

Here's the magnets I used (just needed one though):

Aside from that it just took a few odd nuts, washers, and a bit of superglue. I had to bore the hole in top of the cigar box because the box turned out to be a bit too thick (sorry Pepin Garcia!) to get enough attraction between the magnet and the stir bar. I think I might have had better luck with stronger magnets or a different stir bar but oh well.

As someone suggested I first glued a washer to the fan so that I could move the magnet around a but to find the sweet spot where it didn't shake too bad then I glued the washer in place.

I used the long bolts/nuts that came with the fan to attach it to the lid (you can see the bolts in the first picture). Between the top of the fan and the lid I had to add washers to keep the fan from rubbing on the cigar box.

That's pretty much it. The fan has a variable speed control but I get a small vortex on the lowest setting, and higher settings throws the bar off the magnet.

Now I just need to wait for my soda preforms to show up so I can start saving a bit more yeast after I use the stir plate!

I got the idea for using the soda preforms from here:

Assuming your pints are partially filled with spent wort, you can siphon that off and just fill old White Labs tubes with the yeast. If you don't have any old tubes kicking around you can just grab some of these

u/esseffgee · 2 pointsr/CampingandHiking

Oh wow, I'll have to give these a go. I've been using a few of the Nalgene Travel Bottle Kit bottles for olive oil, hot sauce, etc, and soda bottle pre-forms for batteries and some other stuff. But they're too big for most things like seasoning/spices, and not big enough for stuff like pancake mix.

u/Stinky_Fartface · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

I do a similar thing, but these are the tubes I use. I bought two sets of them several years ago and they still work great. I replace the caps every so often. For the rack, I just keep them in six pack holders and put them in the keezer. I fill the unused vials with StarSan solution and store them that way.

I'd also like to add that, after I have racked a new beer into the fermentor, I pour the leftover trub into a mason jar, and then let it sit in the fridge for a day. Usually the trub separates to the bottom leaving a fair bit of usable wort. I give it another quick boil just to make sure its sterile and then make a small starter of something. After pouring off much of the beer, I can usually get about 10 vials of slurry.

Custom compact mirrors that I found on etsy; I can customize one for each gal based on her interests (one is getting a disney themed, one is getting PSU, etc)

A necklace to wear for the wedding (so technically not a gift, but they are beautiful so hopefully they will like them anyhow)

Also providing mani/pedi the day before (well my MIL is gifting this to us, so SHE is providing that), hair and makeup for the service, and getting ready food (breakfast and lunch).

As far as other gift ideas though, I am completely clueless. I wanted to make little gift boxes or wedding survival kits for each of them, but I dunno yet.

u/BeanBagKing · 2 pointsr/ReefTank

second on the aptasia, get rid of them. If you don't want to purchase something just to eat them, or they don't get eaten, the hot water method of killing them worked great for me.

Boil some water, take an industrial syringe and suck up some of the water. Blast the aptasia with the water at close range, this should kill it, but will also losen it up a bit. Then reverse suction on the syringe and suck it right out of whatever little hole it's living in. Plenty of youtube videos on it, and a lot cheaper than buying special chemicals.

Fluval sells this simple kit. It does get expensive replacing their specialized cartridges, but it's a good place to start if you're only ready to get your toes wet.

If you want to go bigger, it'll cost more upfront, but is cheaper to maintain.

5lb cylinder less than $15 to fill at gas supply store

u/Elhazar · 2 pointsr/Aquariums

Why would you go for a shitty paintball setup when you could have really high quality two-stage regulator for 15£≈20$ more, not includimg a CO2-cylinder?

Another option with only a single-stage regulator, this is prone to a end-of-tank-dump, but you can read the fillimg status on the second manometer

Simply get your CO2-cylinder locally. Or from Amazon

edit: To expand on this: Both setups paintball setups are bad. The pressure regulator that fits on a piantball-cylinder does not have a manometer to measure the pressure inside the bottle, so the end-of-tank-dump will likely happen, because you have no way to anticipate it.

IMO: Go for the dual-stage system. No worries about end-of-tank-dumps and a system that will last your whole life as aquarist.

u/theferrit32 · 2 pointsr/CGPGrey

Yeah there's a discount if you return the canister.

Or you could probably buy in bulk:

I wish Soda Stream them self just sold larger canisters so I don't need to change it out so often. Would be cheaper for them and for me too due to marginal cost scaling.

First off a Danby 4.4 Cu Ft fridge, something like this. I got this off of some one on craigslist for a $100. I tried to talk them down but some one had informed them that the fridge was valuable to home brewers.

The tap tower was purchased on amazon.

The line connections were also purchased there, since the ones that came on the tower were incorrect for the five gallon kegs.

The temperature controller was also purchased on amazon. Really amazon was my go to.

Here is the CO2 tank I anticipate buying. I haven't really picked out a regulator yet.

u/SudoPoke · 2 pointsr/PlantedTank

I've gone the DIY c02 route and it is just not worth it. You can buy a regulator and 5lb tank off amazon for like 120$ and that will set you up for a year. Then it's like 15$ per refill. You can dial the c02 to whatever level your tank needs. IMHO I'd get pressurized c02 just so I don't have to deal with algae problems.

The number of hours spent refilling soda bottles, growing yeast, cleaning, dealing with c02 swings and no precise control with very very little benefit to show for it. Easily cost more than 120$ in time, effort and supplies.

That should be everything. I would look into EI dosing too. Especially if you're going with dry ferts. You'll have to find a place near you that can fill the Co2 tank. I get mine filled at Beer Depot. Any home brewery store will have the equipment necessary to refill a 5lb Co2 tank. Welding stores also refill Co2 tanks. If you're really luck, you may have an awesome LFS that refills tanks too. If I missed anything, or if you have any more questions, please let me know. =)

I would avoid eBay, you can grab a gallon from Amazon of Essential Depot for $7.20 more, get double the amount (1 gal vs 1/2 gal) and have it shipped free same day (with Prime). This is what I bought last month, no issues. I tried a liter first and was also fine.

Or like /u/afflaq mentioned, if you are looking for more, 4gal comes in at $70 direct from Essential Depot.

EDIT, I believe the same day shipping is $35 on Amazon, so grab a few 8oz bottles to store it in for use.

u/tsuuga · 2 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

You're going to pay like a thousand bucks for that much bubble solution, plus shipping and handling. My advice would be to pick up an empty drum, a couple of buckets of liquid detergent, and a gallon of glycerin; and make it yourself in your back yard. You'd be looking at more like $250 plus shipping (particularly, you're going to save S&H on 400 pounds of water). There's lots of recipes online but you'd generally be looking at 1 part detergent to 6-8 parts water, and 1 part glycerin to 12-16 parts detergent.

u/creative_influx · 2 pointsr/microgrowery

you need to get a ph meter: will suffice.

I would recommend a water/nutrient pH of 6.4 for promix as it is a peat based media that is acidic. Meaning your pH should be about 6.2, but if you add 6.2 and hits the acidic peat, it will not be that anymore. Some people argue lower pH for soiless, but let me assure you that at 6.4 in results in a 5.6ish out. I personally think you are safe with a pH 5.4-6.2 out. What I mean by out is run-off, you need to feed enough liquid so that ~20% just drains through. Placing the pot in a pail during feeding/watering helps. This will drain extra salts.

Also, you should add perlite (1/3 volume) with promix as it can cause drainage problems and water retention if you don't. Think about that before you transplant. You may need to also add dolomite lime in the future. Read up on that please, just thinking ahead for you, and letting you avoid mistakes I had made. It doesn't take a lot, but helps to stabilize your pH and provides cal/mag.

>Not sure what EC means

It means Electroconductivity and refers to the salinity of your water.
Do you know how hard your water is? If its too hard, you need to dilute it with RO water. Some people just use RO water only, but supplement it with CalMag solution. If you don't know what's in your tap water, call the water department and ask them. They most probably posted your water analysis online.

Yur just lucky I'm feeling nice ;)

EDIT: And ffs quit giving them miracle grow!

u/innocuousremark · 2 pointsr/Kombucha

I got one from Jellas and I'm very happy with it, which I'll link at the end of this reply. It's been quite accurate for my purposes. I occasionally put it in distilled water to make sure it's not falling out of calibration and so far it hasn't drifted, but if it does it has a screw to adjust it back. The batteries are easy to replace, and it's easy to slide it in past the pellicle and get a quick measurement. I'm actually on my second unit because I accidentally broke the bulb on the first one while drying it. Definitely let it air dry. I always rinse it right before and right after using it. It's a great way to make sure you're brewing a consistent product, since you will know exactly when your first and second fermentations are finished. Remember that pH is logarithmic so the rate of change will not be linear, and the difference in acidity between 4.0 and 3.0 is not 25%, it's 1,000%. I start the second fermentation at 3.4-3.6 and finish around 3.1-3.2.

u/Endall · 2 pointsr/HerbGrow

Sorry for the slow response.

That is good your budget is flexible and you want to do it right from the start.

I think the tent is a good choice, and you have lots of vertical height which is great. Are you in a grow friendly state? The reason I ask is they might have some sales at local hydroponic and gardening stores that you might consider. Your plant will have at least a foot above it for clearance from the light and a foot below where you've got your pot. So your actual plant will probably just be around 4 feet tall.

I know a lot of people in america use fox farms soil and the fox farms nutrient line up. Seems to be successful. I am going a slightly more organic method using General Organics nutrients and pro mix with some compost as my soil. The fox farms soil has starting food in it while the pro mix is inert, which means full control of the food for the grower but less of a safety net for the plant if you mess it up.

There is a lot of options when it comes to food, each company has a ton of products. To get you going though I would just use the vegatative food and the flowering food. And some calmag. Everything else is just optional and you can always use next time.

Once you've got your medium and food sorted, you'll want to be able to check your ph levels.

Also grab some of the bottles of ph up and down so you can adjust it accordingly before you feed your ladies.

You'll need a tent to fit your space, I would browse amazon for deals and base your decision on their reviews!

As for what pots to use, I started using fabric pots and they are great. They allow for less over watering because the medium can breathe more easily. You'll want to start in 4 inch pots, then maybe to a gallon, then 3 gallons, perhaps all the way to 5 if you want. Kinda depends on how many plants you decide to keep? I grow small numbers and big plants.

After that you've just got to decide on lighting and ventilation. I don't know a lot about LEDs except that it cuts down on electricity and heat. Some people invest in american companies but they can be quite expensive. A popular method is just ordering cheap LED fixtures from china and not worrying too much if they break because they are so cheap.

/u/Legal_In_OR might stop by here to give some LED advice. He uses top of the line LEDS but I am wondering if he has insight on some of the cheaper options to get you going.

We also have lots of useful information on our website.

Feel free to ask more questions.

ph meter from amazon

I have this one and it works well! 16 bucks too so I recommend this if you are looking to purchase one!

u/KnaisGuy · 2 pointsr/microgrowery

I like how you asked for cheaper than $30 and people respond with $200 probes lmao.

I got these two off Amazon cheap, like $15 each.

I've tested them in r/o water and they seem to be accurate, the tds measures up with my water report from the city on my tap water and reads r/o at 0.

I haven't had any issues with my plants as far as ph or PPM.

Here are the ones I got.

Noodler's Ahab. You can use any sort of eyedropper-like tool, but I prefer a blunt-tip syringe, such as this one.

u/Artemisa_of_Persia · 2 pointsr/DIYBeauty

It's this syringe. I think the problem may be the needle-like tip so I'll check out the baby syringe.

u/TheShadyMilkman206 · 2 pointsr/bettafish

Glad you asked! One thing we have to remember about Prime is that it does not remove the ammonia, it just renders it harmless. So the result is a "false positive" on standard ammonia tests. It will still be there but it is no longer harming your fish.

If you would like peace-of-mind you can get a Free vs Total Ammonia test kit. This kit allows you to measure the amounts of Free (harmful) ammonia vs. the Total (harmless once Prime is involved).

Even if you aren't going to get some, read the description on Amazon. It is really helpful in understanding Ammonia chemistry.

For measuring ANYTHING for your aquarium, go to your local drugstore pharmacy (Even Walmart pharmacies will do this) and ask them for free syringes. They are absolutely AWESOME for measuring anything that takes very small measurements such as Prime. If for whatever reason you can't get some for free from a drug store, order a set like this. I use the 1ml and 5ml syringes every single day.

Edit: I suck at spelling....

u/Mcgizzle1883 · 2 pointsr/trees

2% is NOT high’s extremely low! I’d also recommend to use a heavy indica strain given what you’ve reported since you’re looking for more calming effects vs. high energy. Your specific condition could be the cause of how you’re not feeling any effects, so it’s probably best to significantly bump up your intake.

Buy distillate syringes ($65 at Surterra) and just make infused coconut oil. Distillate is up to 90% thc and will go a long way....Plus you can truly control your dosages by concentrating them as much as you’d like.

All you have to do is heat up unrefined coconut oil in a Pyrex container, put the distillate into the hot oil and start stirring for a few minutes. Once it emulsifies it’s ready to use. The distillate is very thick, so put the syringe into hot water for a minute So that it becomes less viscous and then remove the cap to dispense it.

Example - let’s say there’s 850mg of thc in one distillate syringe and you use 50ml of coconut oil.

850/50 = 17mg of thc per ml of oil. You aren’t just limited to using one distillate syringe - feel free to use more to make your infused oil more potent.

Buy a blunt tip luer lock syringe with ml measurements and then simply put it into your own empty capsules. You can buy the syringe and the capsules on amazon for very cheap. You can also use these blunt tip syringes to measure your coconut oil to ensure he dosages will be right. Links to the items you need below

You can also dispense the distillate straight into your own cartridges and vape it, but be sure to use only a ceramic cartridge. Do not include any coconut oil into your vape...just distillate

This is the one I use. With a mag stirrer you shouldn’t need any heat at all. Especially for standard concentrations. It’s flat out amazing. Takes all the work out of it. No sitting there stirring with a glass rod for a half hour. Just set it and walk away. Come back a half hour later and you have freshly made gear all in perfect solution.

I just started using kegs and it has made everything easier. I built a keezer recently, bottling everything became massive chore, and carbonating is easier.

And as far as SNA, I never do that, I've tried it and never really tasted a difference and it's a hassel. I bought a cheap stir plate and start my yeast a day before and that seemed to make much more of a difference. This is the one I got and don't worry about buying a stir bar if you get it, the stir plate comes with one. Magnetic Stirrer Magnetic Mixer with stir bar (No Heating) Max Stirring Capacity: 3000ml

If you get kegs try to buy used ones, I bought all mine used, they really don't fo bad you just have to change seals from time to time or the posts.

u/poprockcide · 2 pointsr/HotPeppers

Check out this video by chilli chump. Basically, he makes a mash by blending the cayenne with some salt and ferments it for 3 weeks. Using mason jars with airlocks. Some people use a salt brine but he doesnt. Then after it's fermented he adds equal parts vinegar and blends it using a Magnetic Stirrer with stir bar for three more weeks to emulsify the sauce.

Don't think he adds Xanthan gum but a lot of people do. He made his own stir plate by attaching magnets to a computer fan. He linked a video on how he make that.

u/keitare · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

I got a flask and a stir plate off amazon for under 60 bucks. This is the stir plate I got and works well with either 1L or 2L at the slow speeds used for a yeast starter.

u/kylejacobson84 · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

Since you're looking at Amazon reviews when considering your purchase, I found this guy for a decent price with 4.5 stars on Amazon. I do not currently own a stir plate, but when I worked at a nanobrewery (only making one-barrel batches), we used one. It definitely made things more efficient.

Best of luck in your brewing adventures!

Here's a link to those tubes. They're pretty common, you might be able to find a better price than that.

Superglue doesn't work very well. Loctite 404 is the best I've found of the cyanoacrylates, but it tops out at "okay," unless you're willing to put in a lot of surface prep.

ABS glue works great, though it can be a pain to use. You want to make your own: get some acetone and some ABS. Undyed pellets are best, like this: , though you should be able to find cheaper. Put some pellets in a small jar, and add acetone. You're probably looking to end up around 2 parts acetone to 1 part pellets by volume, but you can adjust it pretty far either way. Mix them together through a combination of stirring and shaking. This will take a while, and you'll probably need to let them soak periodically. They won't dissolve all the way without mixing, and they wont mix without soaking, so it's just going to take a while. Eventually though, you'll have a good that you can brush or squirt onto PLA to make it stick together. I mostly use mine with an industrial syringe, with a pin in the needle to keep a channel open. It's easy to dispense, and fairly convenient. For large applications or for painting onto a bed, I use acid brushes.

You can also weld pieces together with a dremel. This is a very good join for large pieces, especially with straight seams, but can be rough for detail work. There's a description here:

look on amazon, between the item description and the "questions ask/answered" section regarding the product, i have seen some where this information is provided. 0.1ml is the amount delivered from one i saw i believe.


I recommend this one... it's 30ml but EASILY fits into your pocket.


the glass one here is much better then the plastic one from the same company, and i'm relatively sure it delivers 0.1ml per squirt


To make sure, simply fill it with an amount of water measured using an oral syringe (available for free at almost all pharmacys, just ask the pharmacist, say that your little brother got some medicine that requires one for measurement and needs it... though i prefer ones with a long blunt tip, available on amazon as well [here's the 10ml ones i often use and love] (

u/notpace · 1 pointr/Kombucha

I have a 5 lb. CO2 tank that sits on a small shelf in the back of my kegerator, with a regulator to dispense CO2 at 30PSI. The CO2 is attached to the corny keg using some 5/16" gas line and a ball-lock fitting.

The 40 ft. of beverage line is 3/16" (internal diameter) vinyl tubing that is coiled and wrapped with zipties to make sure it doesn't get tangled. Even though that sounds like a lot of line, there is only ~8 ounces of fluid in it when it is completely full. When the keg runs dry, I detach the CO2 and beverage lines, clean the keg, add about a liter of sanitized water (diluted starsan) to the keg, reattach the lines, and push the sanitized water through the beverage line. When the beverage line looks nice and clean (but still has the sanitized water in it), I can take it off and leave it in my kegerator until it's ready to use again. When I add another full keg, I just discard the first glass (which is half sanitized water and half sediment from the cold crash), and then I'm good to go.

u/audis4gasm · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

u/hvgwib · 1 pointr/ebikes

The only way I clean my chain is taking it off entirely and putting it into one of these with whatever cleaner you like, I've used a citrus degrease and simple green, both seemed great. Nothing has done as good of a job.

Once clean and dry, I drop the chain into this and shake the chain around with the lid on tight. I then hang the chain over the container with the ends of the chain just over the opening of the bottle, a funnel can help here but I never needed it.

Chains come out super clean, extremely well lubricated, and I absolutely love this lube. The only thing I've liked better is paraffin wax in certain respects but much sooner reapplication is needed which can be annoying.

You can fit cassettes in these ultrasonic cleaners as well, does a great job.

u/Racoonsinatrenchcoat · 1 pointr/minipainting

I use an ultrasonic cleaner ($30 on amazon) with just plain water. A few seconds is all it takes. With a splash of simple green added, they're also very useful for cleaning & stripping models, cleaning airbrushes, etc.

If you don't want to spend the money, an old toothbrush and some water should do the trick.

u/jshly91 · 1 pointr/bikewrench

I use a little one from amazon:

I use it with heated water and just a little bit of degreaser if needed. Sure it takes a few batches and a few runs to do everything, but it's only $30 and things come out super clean.

u/dontfeedphils · 1 pointr/VapeXhale

I actually got it from Vapexhale, but I think it was a limited run because it's been a while since I've seen it on the website. For an ultrasonic cleaner you can do something like this. I soak the nails and baskets in the ultrasonic cleaner filled with the highest concentration isopropal alcohol I can find. Usually soak them overnight or for a day, but it doesn't have to be that long, and I'll just turn on the ultrasonic cleaner here and there during that time.


Then when I'm ready I'll take them out, brush them off good to remove the remaining stains, soak in clean iso for a bit, dry off, and then finally burn them off in the vape with it set to the highest temp (in case it needs to be said, always be careful with iso around heat, otherwise you might lose some hair or go boom).

u/nickwc92 · 1 pointr/askwomenadvice

I've worked for a retail jeweler for years in the past. Just walk into a jeweler and ask them to clean it, they will clean it free. When I was working there our main idea to keep people in the store to try and sell something was to offer to clean all the jewelry they had on and while they sit in the machine cleaning we would offer our help. But you dont have to be helped if you just want it cleaned.

Get on Amazon and buy some Gemoro cleaner. Or buy a machine, it shocks all the dirt and crud off here is a cheap one that will work, or give you an idea of what you want, if you want to do it at home. Just let it sit in machine for a minute to a couple mins depending on how dirty it is. But if you buy the machine please buy the cleaner chemicals to go with it so it will clean properly. You mix the chemicals with water based on the chemical brands instructions. Be sure to do some googling on what stones and metals can go into those machines. Stones like opal are precious, soft stones, that should not be placed in those machines. A lot of birthstones shouldnt be placed in those machines. They will discolor them and ruin them.

Edit: If its diamonds and real gold wear it whenever you want. The only thing that will degrade is the gold. But you can "re-dip" the gold whenever it starts to degrade or discolor. White gold will become more "matte" or not as shiny. When it comes to that just spend 25-40 bucks on dipping it. Yellow gold will start to turn into a white gold color, so dip it then. With yellow gold there is silver metals mixed into it so that's why itll turn white-ish after a while.

I hope this helps you. I recommended the machine incase you dont want to be hassled in the jewelry store, they're ruthless because sales are low 98 percent of the year. I recommend going to a local jeweler because you're helping your local community jeweler stay in business and they wont bombard you like retail will, like with credit card applications and all the bs. Good luck and congratulations!

Edit 2: Also, if its gold and diamonds, dont be so tough on yourself. Just was your hands in public with the ring on. Dont risk loosing it or forgetting it because you hear people say it messes the ring up or whatever cause of soap. It really wont mess it up like that. Just take it off when you put on lotion, sunscreen, etc.

u/xandarg · 1 pointr/organicindoorgrowers

Hmm, I'd be shocked if one of us discovered a substance we could get at home that would create an as-of-yet-undiscovered precipitation reaction that would precipitate chloramine out of water! The reaction with citric acid you mentioned, is another one I now remember I've heard. All the points you make are right on, so if you figure something out, let us know! BUT the first step in my mind is finding a way to verify any potential results, so we're back to a cost effective way of measuring chloramine levels in a given water sample.

The cheap test strips for drinking water and aquariums seem to only test for chlorine ($13), and the expensive ones seem to indicate they CAN be calibrated to check for chloramine ( ($1,099). This seems made specifically to test for chloramine, but it's unavailable (

I'll bet small quantities of citric acid are fine, and small amount of humic acids are definitely beneficial (humic acid is naturally occurring in compost and is great for soil). How much is too much, idk, since I don't add any directly/intentionally.

How bad are these?

u/Roofofcar · 1 pointr/mechanical_gifs

A life changer: anhydrous alcohol. Because it’s 99.9% alcohol, it evaporates essentially on contact when compared with ISO you might have used. I clean flat planes to be joined with a dab on a paper towel, then a microfiber cloth, then a quick jet of air. That might sound like a lot, but it’s genuinely less than 20 seconds per joint in cleaning time.

u/rdesktop7 · 1 pointr/3Dprinting

I use acetone on mine.

You can try some anhydrous IPA if you want to try something a bit less harsh.

Try to avoid acetone used for cosmetics, they tend to have things like perfumes in them that will only make your life sad.

Here are links to the fluids I like to use for cleaning:



Particularly on a hot print bed, make sure you are in a very well ventilated area during use.

u/UnlimitedCashOrgasms · 1 pointr/avb

alcohol will readily evaporate. Once the alcohol has "extracted" (pulled all the good shit) out of the plant matter, just let it sit out for a day or so. Applying heat will accelerate this process. it will evaporate and leave a gooey resin on your plate (or Pyrex dish). scrape (razor blade) and smoke. your done. Aside from golden grain you can also use this. Just don't drink it.

u/KLAM3R0N · 1 pointr/prusa3d

It could be "bad" ipa. Denatured ipa is not good for print bed cleaning. ( a bit on the subject

It is probably denatured with a oil based chemical , or has a weird additive, even a residue in the plastic bottle before filling at the factory.... Try another brand and get yourself some 99% ipa MG Chemicals 824-1L 99.9% Isopropyl Alcohol Liquid Cleaner, Clear , 945 mL (1 US Quart)

I'm personally curious about using DI water(deionized water) to clean instead of 99% ipa, or maybe a 50/50 mix. We use it at work on the industrial printers and it works really good.

u/Red-Fawn · 1 pointr/telescopes

This should work. It's not reagent grade, but I don't think the .09% difference will make a difference in a non-lab setting. The introduced impurities from the q-tip would make it a moot point anyway.

u/JorgJorgJorg · 1 pointr/trees

Everclear will bring through more plant matter because it is only 95% alcohol (or 76% if your state doesnt allow the real stuff). I would highly recommend getting 99% iso from amazon. Dont listen to anyone who says the flavor isnt as good with iso. If you use 99.9%, it all evaporates anyway.

If you use everclear, your oil will be an undesireable shade of green due to bringing through the water soluble parts of the plant

u/Sonicjosh · 1 pointr/gamecollecting

u/Cit_the_bed · 1 pointr/overclocking

It looks like it was in a flood or fire. Odds are the person turned it on and fried it. Your best bet is to save the cpu, the gpus by stripping them down. The motherboard is cheap to get, the ram is probably indestructible... forget the psu exists. You need to really clean the parts well to get the contaminants off. Head to walmart and get gallon jugs of distilled water, and just clean it really really well.

Do you have access to a large ultrasonic cleaner? Fill it with isopropyl and turn it on outside (so there's no fire and explosion risk).

After you use the alcohol to drive the water out, I would clean the gpus twice as the ram is bga, and get a can of pcb contact cleaner and blast it with that when totally done.

I'm pretty sure you can salvage the gpus if the caps are solid caps.

Keep us posted, this looks like fun.

I cant find the youtube video I watched to fix my controllers.. it seems to be removed. But a few drops of this stuff (safe to use on electronics - it dries very fast) into the base of the joystick. You have to lift the rubber flap with a toothpick while you apply a few drops. Then just swirl the joypad clockwise and counterclockwise for 30 seconds to a minute. I have fixed all 3 of my controllers with drifts using this method.

u/sentkent · 1 pointr/eldertrees

Hmm. okay. I saw a Youtube video that recommended this product, but that was for making an RSO wax/oil consistency, so maybe he used it because all the alcohol is evaporated off..

u/dannydrak · 1 pointr/cigars

They make them pretty small.

That was just a quick google search. Dig around for size and price. You can get a bottle of PG solution locally for usually around $6-$8 for an 8oz to get you started. I'll see if I can find you a sale online....

The tubes work fine, too, but are not the same thing and do not use PG.

EDIT: The cheapest way to get PG solution is to make it yourself. Just order yourself some PG and mix it in a 1 to 1 ration with distilled water. Accuracy isn't hugely important, but should be within 10%. This will make 2 pints and last you a very long time.

u/cooneyes · 1 pointr/vaporents

This product is the same as Ploom's mouthpiece lubricant, and it's much cheaper. All they use is food-grade propylene glycol.

u/TrimPot · 1 pointr/Etizolam

I'm assuming you have a gemini-20 or something similar. Accuracy is about +/- 3mg with larger amounts. I'd suggest going for around 1mg/ml solution as this will be easy to measure and if you are mixing into 100ml+ the inaccuracy won't matter at all. You can find PG on amazon, you can also find it on some online vape shops because it's one of the main base ingredients in eliquid. Just get yourself a beaker to measure it out and a blunt tip syringe to measure your doses.

u/lhr0909 · 1 pointr/ploompax

The solid red light you are having is the temperature-light issue. Make sure you clean it regularly, and leave it upside down (oven at the bottom) so that the piece stays as clean as possible.

I will buy some mouthpiece lubricant (or just Propylene Glycol (Amazon Link)) to lubricate the mouth piece connection part thoroughly. You don't need a lot, but make sure it is lubed up in the connection part. It always solves my temp-light issues.

Make sure to checkout the wiki in this subreddit on how to clean the pax.

Some comments:

2 You are looking for an Ego Threaded Beauty Ring.

3 You can also buy MUCH better tanks like an Evod for cheap and they have replaceable coils so they are worth the investment. I personally have had better luck with something like a protank or BDC, but anything with replaceable coils will be a big step forward. Also the better build construction means less leaking.

4 PEG-400 is not really an ideal base for any ejuice. It has a bad taste and does not carry flavors very well. You would have much better luck using Vegetable Glycerin or Propylene Glycol.

I get my pg & vg from amazon. great prices. Just mix it in the ratios you want & your good to go. I vape unflavored juice with nicotine because I prefer it, it seems like a lighter less complicated vape than with flavors. Sometimes when I am bored I will put in some menthol for a change

u/da1man · 1 pointr/researchchemicals

This is the PG I buy personally, never had an issue with it, not sure about any b&ms though that would sell it.

u/Diabloviro · 1 pointr/RCSupplies

mixing any podwer consist of a carrier and the powder.

DO you have a a fine mg accurate scale. Many of the cheaper scaled aren't accurate until 6 mg or more

Create a sheet with your desired concentration. 100mgs Etiz to 200ML of

equals 1CC equals 2mg of etiz. I advise you not to make strong blends and frankly, you should combine ingredients and shake daily for about three days and they should be blended. I wouldnt worry about heating unless you're jonesing.

u/DigitalCloudVapor · 1 pointr/electronic_cigarette

Depends on the PG/VG ratio. Seems most "high end" e-liquid don't put this on the label. It looks like they use 30/70 mix, after a quick google search, which might be a little too thick for your tanks. You could always thin it out by adding some PG, but you would be reducing flavor slightly and lowering the nicotine.

u/dcux · 1 pointr/electronic_cigarette

If you prefer a 50/50 blend, you could do that too. I bought a quart of VG on amazon for ~$12.

Molecular Gastronomy Spherirication is really fun and sciency. I made little balsamic vinegar spears when I did it for a project but you can do it with fruit juice and then put them on ice cream. They are kinda like boba but much smaller. I used these pipettes to make the spheres (if you decide to do this, I still have a bunch and totally willing to send you some if you would like) It was pretty fun and I'm an adult. Also I have a simpler recipe but mine is specifically for vinegar...not sure if that matters...

These brain ice cube trays would make ice or you could make mini brain jello jigglers.

u/Zaliika · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Buy vinegar, bicarb, food colouring and pipettes. Put the bicarb in a tray, and mix the vinegar with food colouring in cups. Let the kids use the pipettes to drop vinegar into the bicarb and watch it fizz and bubble!
I do this with my class all the time, and they love it. The colouring just makes it extra fun. Of course, you can also just put the vinegar in a cup or bottle and drop the bicarb in... fwoosh! Explosion!

  1. yes, if you make a THC ejuice, it should work in dam near any ecig parts
  2. 1g shatter + 1ml ejmix, stir, let sit at room temp, stir once a day, for one week = THC ejuice
  3. i make mine in a large BHO jar
  4. get a disposable plastic pipette to easily fill your ecig stuff.
  5. chase cloud 9

    to make it into a concentrate, you have to run a solvent over it. the easiest way for you might be to soak/rinse dry herb in some high strength everclear, if possible. but it's not a quick process to let it dry off and condense. i feel bad for everyone that doesnt have access to a decent supply chain :/.
u/chemcalfarmr · 1 pointr/DIY_eJuice

4 Oz bottles for nic, pg, and vg. I find these are perfect for control pouring.

Right now I use disposable pipettes for my flavors... I just started so I only have small 8 ml drams.

I just throw them away... But I have thought about cleaning them out with a squirt of water and reusing. I feel bad when I use 1 pipette for like 0.5 g of flavor.

I'm hoping I can move up to larger bottles and use regular bottle droppers or something.

u/YrocATX · 1 pointr/Art

If you can get the rest of the look maybe doing a "layered" injection of a liquid in to the background would work. Use a pipette to slowly place some liquid down and then another to do the eye. Good luck!

u/RelaxingOnTheBeach · 1 pointr/eldertrees

u/Br4veNewW0rld · 1 pointr/AnycubicPhoton

It's difficult to get the excess resin off of areas that have support. The surface tension causes it to pool.

I recommend getting an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner. You can find them on amazon for around $20 USD. Fill the cleaner with isopropyl alcohol and let it vibrate for a few minutes. It will solve the problem.

Alternatively, you can try and scrub out the areas with a toothbrush, but I find that it takes to long and the results aren't as good as the ultrasonic cleaner.

EDIT: I just checked and they are actually closer to $40. I have this one and it works great.

u/tralce · 1 pointr/electronic_cigarette

I have one and I would recommend it to anybody, but it is not a requirement by any means. I used to use rubbing alcohol, Q-tips, water, and time to clean my tanks, and it worked extremelt well.

With the ultrasonic I can get 5 tanks/RDAs clean in under 10 minutes. I run hot water, chuck the gear into the cleaner with the water, run it for 3 minutes, then use my air compressor to blow any excess water away. Honestly takes longer to reassemble everything than the cleaning takes.

Still, unless you're really anal about cleaning, or have a crapton of gear that needs cleaning often, you do not need one.

u/sofauxboho · 1 pointr/electronic_cigarette

If you want stuff really clean or buy atomizers frequently (I have a problem) I also highly recommend an ultrasonic cleaner. They're not expensive and are both less work and more effective than hand cleaning. I have this one:

It's the only way I've been able to actually get old juice out of tanks you can't take apart like the Triton V1.

u/kablaq · 1 pointr/Warhammer

For airbrushes, I'm personally a fan of the Neo by Iwata, especially their gravity feed (cup) model. The brush is well built, fairly easy to take apart and clean, and has very few issues with most paints and other products you may put through it.

I picked mine up on sale for around $50, and if you have a Michael's or Hobby Lobby nearby, you may be able to pick it for less with one of their one-item coupons they release occasionally. It's also nice if you have a hobby store near by as you can drop in a pick up replacement needles or nibs if you accidentally drop it >.>; . Needles and nibs typically cost in the 10-15 dollar range for replacements, so not too terrible.

For compressors, a simple compressor with a tank will work wonderfully, so long as it has a proper pressure regulator and water trap. I have this compressor and it works well, after I got the correct airbrush hose to attach to the NEO.

There are a couple extra tools that can help with airbrushing as well, but most can be picked up at a later point. Something I would recommend that you get with the initial purchase is a spray booth. This allows you a place to spray into and capture many of the errant particles of paint from your airbrush. Combined with a proper respirator mask, it will ensure that you don't breath in any of the particulate from airbrushing, and hopefully don't have airbrush paints drying on items they weren't directly sprayed on. I would say of the two, the mask is the most important to have.

A quick-disconnect is useful for cleaning and swapping airbrushes, but isn't really necessary at first. A cleaning pot is also useful as it gives you a dedicated space to spray out leftover paint and cleaing fluid, and should stay fairly contained.

I would also look at purchasing a ultrasonic cleaner further on, as it is amazingly helpful for cleaning the airbrush when paint has leaked into the body, or spilled into places it shouldn't be.

Other's can probably offer advice as well, but that's what I currently use. Hope this helps!

u/aclapp1626 · 1 pointr/electronic_cigarette

I would absolutely recommend washing any new attys before use. If you have an ultrasonic cleaner, that is one of the best ways. If you do not, you can put it in a dish of hot soapy water, making sure to take it apart, and letting it soak for a few. You can then rinse and put in some vodka if you so choose, just make sure that if you do that you rinse really really well.

If you are interested in a reasonably price ultrasonic cleaner, heres one that Ive seen pop up a couple times here.

That and a shallow tupperware. Any cheap ultrasonic with reviews, really, just get the dimensions of the chamber and make sure you can find a suitable container. I remember reading about an immersible ultrasonic transducer, like just drop the end in a bucket and it vibrates the water, but couldn't find anything. Just industrial ones.

no problem! the drop holy pandas are very inconsistently lubed. some have very little if any and others people have reported that theirs were overlubed, but general consensus was that no batch of received switches had been lubed consistently and that one switch from a batch could not be held to be lubed equivalently to another. mine seems to be on drier side and some were indeed more lubed than others. I just decided to relube everything.

this ultrasonic cleaner did the job for me:

just add a little bit of dish detergent or dawn and stir the watter a bit so it somewhat mixes, not bubble over XD, before you put the switch parts in for cleaning. it runs for 480 seconds max per time you turn it on. meaninng roughly 8 minutess. I would run it twice at 8 minutes and then just gently use tap water to rinse them slightly. From there, i would just let them dry.

u/xx2000xx · 1 pointr/electronic_cigarette

Back in the day we'd all use to just boil the hell out of our tanks and drip tips and but it was rare to see anything that wasn't stainless steel.

Now I use this this ultrasonic cleaner that's popular on this sub:

First with a drop of dish soap, then you can lift the basket out and rinse it and dump the water and do one more washing. I gotta say the hype was real and it'll get inside every nook and cranny. Just be careful though because it has some power and a lot of the time grub screws will come out and hard to spot those suckers when they're nice and clean now too.

Something like this is a must for every vapor too: - I'm sure Amazon has something similar and just figure out the conversion to Metric.

On the topic of pH, I've had a few burning questions for a while. Wasn't sure to make a new post on this or stick it here.

  2. How to test the pH of products of different consistency? A watery toner seems straigtforward, but others less so.

I don't grow outside but I don't think you need to add more nutes to your soil. Not if you are using a quality soil like Ocean Forest.

But I would check your run off water pH. With soil, you could probably get away with those little paper tester strips they use for pools. Super cheap and available at any pool supply or hardware shop.

It sounds like the cleanser just didn't agree with you, you can certainly stop using it. In the future, it's best to patch test new products in one area to determine if they won't break you out and you aren't sensitive or allergic to something in it.

If you're worried about the pH of your handmade soap, pH test strips are super cheap, easy, and frankly fun to play with. You can find out if you even need to worry about your cleanser before trying to find a new one you like!

Ask away brother.

Don't let people like /u/abdada discourage you from asking questions. Just because the answers are out there doesn't mean that we shouldn't have conversations about them. The world is an ever-changing place, and a sidebar on an internet forum is not the repository for all of the answers in the universe.
