I got the entire organizer for $12 on amazon. They're called 'floss bobbins' i think and can be purchased by themselves if you want!

u/seashoreduck · 19 pointsr/IsItBullshit Here's a tiny one from a well known hobby company. So, way more expensive than one from a hardware store.

u/VW67_22 · 16 pointsr/Skookum

Youtube CERTIFIED Master Automobile Technician patch (3"x4")

u/GrizzleFirebear · 14 pointsr/magicTCG

I think this is the one I have, but you can just search record button. Little more expensive then I remember.

u/LiliedHart · 11 pointsr/notebooks

Might be easier to just get a perforation cutter like this or this, then she can make any page tearable as she likes.

u/Hadokin · 8 pointsr/airsoft

Disclaimer: I have used this method to keep combat boots tied and tight for the last 12 years of a military career, this is a tip for anyone that wants to make their life significantly easier during airsoft while running around in combat boots.

Step 1: Grab a set of Cord locks from anywhere (ebay, amazon, random gear)

I like using these:

Step 2: Take the laces and feed them through the clip and tie a knot on the end of each lace

Step 3: Put foot in boot, tighten cord locks down to comfortable point of boots

Step 4: Wrap the laces around the back of the boot and around the cord lock

Step 5: Make the laces taut and tuck the ends or what’s left over into the boots

Step 6: Enjoy a day of running around without worrying about your boots coming undone

Side note: Sometimes the laces will get a little slack in them but your boots will remain tight on your feet, when they get slack, just make them taut again and tuck back into boot

Edit: damn auto correct!

u/HillaryEdits · 8 pointsr/TheOrville

Haha I would, but I don't want Fox to sue me. This doorbell only took about 10 minutes to make. I bought this [button] ( from amazon, and made the Planetary Union symbol using a silhouette cameo. I cut the design on vinyl and stuck it on. The button can record any sound so I just recorded the door chime in a quiet room.

This was a birthday present I made for Tom, it's been a big hit!

u/PinkMenace · 7 pointsr/Amry
u/lacoursieres · 6 pointsr/battlestations

Hey thanks a lot!

It's holding up using the strongest velcro tape I could find at my local hardware store.
It's strong enough as it doesn't move at all even my I plug or unplug XLR cables from it.

I think that's exactly what I used:

u/AllOutOTF · 6 pointsr/orangetheory

I wear the pace rival crops and I love them, mine don’t slip but I did buy a size down. In the past before I sized down, I used those plastic spring cord lock things on the drawstring instead of tying it in a knot. I get the flat ones and they don’t bother me at all during the workout. You can find them on amazon or probably in a craft store.

ETA: link for what I’m talking about

u/ginger_faerie · 6 pointsr/CrossStitch

I have this and I LOVE IT

I can easily adjust the legs, and it's easy to switch frames, too. Also, I really like the clamp system for holding the fabric to the frame. No taping, no stitiching, just clamp it in like you would with a q-snap. It has lots of great reviews, and I"m one of them!

u/bitchnstitch · 6 pointsr/CrossStitch

What about something like this or something like this that’s easily just snapped closed and put away? That’s how I keep my floss away from dogs who consider everything “theirs” 😂. I also keep my WIP in something like this so I’m able to keep it out of dust and pet hair while still being both portable and easily storable.

u/benungs · 5 pointsr/typewriters

I don't think you're going to find one with a hook. However, you can get some grommet pliers (get the right size!) to go with grommets with hooks that, maybe, you can find somewhere (2 minutes of looking and I haven't found any, and now I surrender the search to you).....

u/Digipatd · 5 pointsr/army

Yes, REI does as well. The common name for them is cord locks.

Plastic Cord Locks End Spring Stop Toggle Stoppers Multi-colour (10PCS, Black)

u/LovableLycanthrope · 5 pointsr/guns
u/wildvi0let · 5 pointsr/CrossStitch

It's this one but it isn't currently available through Amazon 😿

They do have a slightly different one available, it just has less mobility.

u/CHARtheGNAR · 5 pointsr/Throwers

Found them on amazon.

Embroidery Floss Organizer Box - 17 Compartments with 100 Hard Plastic Floss Bobbins and 640 Floss Number Stickers. (Full Set)

u/SackityPack · 5 pointsr/buildapcsales

I wouldn't get these. Grab a continuous roll of double sided velcro instead. Cut it to the exact length you need and there's no excess to wrap up. Also more durable.

You might be able to find it cheaper in a store.

u/MrGingerLeprechaun · 5 pointsr/EDC

The patch is iron-on so I attached some of this Velcro with its adhesive and it has worked great.

u/Dains84 · 4 pointsr/foamcore

What shape of hole? I typically just cut through it with my knife like any other cut and pop it out like a token, but for circles that probably isn't doable.

I'd try something like this, but I've never used one myself.

u/cumbersomebubble · 4 pointsr/beards

I started buying collar extenders off amazon, never going back to giant shirts

u/Renz2LK · 4 pointsr/cosplay

It all depends on what type of builder/crafter you want to get into. Buying all the "machines" and tools for someone that would be a foamsmith but you're really a needlework kind of person makes it a potential waste of money and time (and vice versa).

IF you want to get into an overall crafting/building in general, here are the tools and materials I've gathered for my workshop:

I'm gonna put the word **Optional** for the items that are not completely necessary for first time builders, but definitely worth while down the road.

  • Breakaway blades - You can get a pack and break away the blade once it dulls or no longer sharpens.
  • Rotary cutting wheel - for quick fabric cuts
  • Kershaw Sharpening stone -
  • Dremel (or rotary tool) - I've seen these go for as low as $30 for one that has 2 speeds. Since it's mostly for costuming, the 2 speeds is plenty.
  • Besides the Dremel, if you can, pick up a Belt Sander **Optional** from Harbor Frieght (particularly when it goes on sale and they issue a 20% coupon) I got mine for around $50 and it is a time saver!
  • Heat gun, I picked one up from Harbor Freight and it was under $10 at the time. It's still going strong and I have had no issues.
  • Wood Burning Tool **Optional** - This will help you add some great details on the foam. There is a good starter kit also that contains a bunch of nibs, including a soldering nib, as well as a hot knife attachment. The hot knife will cut through foam like butter. One note though, if you don't plan on getting a separate dedicated hot knife, use the one that comes w/ the kit for the finer cuts. The wood burner is a very versatile tool!
  • For the glue. I would suggest Barge Contact cement or DAP Weldwood. This is what I use and it's proven to be a great option. Hot glue is still very helpful and can be used for quick fixes or adding additional bond. My only reason for not using hot glue for foam is that it takes time to cure and you have to hold it in place. Also, sometimes it creates messy seams.
  • Kwik Seal paintable caulk or flexible spackle - to cover up the seams you can use either of these. Difference between the two, 1) the caulk needs to be smoothed out before it dries, you can use water. 2) the spackle can be sanded after it dries if you don't apply it smooth the first time.
  • On the topic of concealing seams or general sculpting, you should look into Foam Clay. It is very malleable and once cured overnight, it's basically shaped foam.
  • Mod Podge or Flexible Clear Coat spray **Optional** - To coat the finished and painted product, you will want to use something that will protect it and also be flexible. Unless, you want it to be very rigid, you can use Epsilon Pro to coat it, but I can't guarantee that it won't crack. Especially areas that will need some flex. I say this is optional because some crafters don't do clear coating.
  • Eye Protection & Mask - you don't want fine bits of foam flying into your eyes or lungs. Make sure you get eye pro and a good fine-filter respirator.
  • Sewing machine - I'm not a needlework expert, but having one is great for sewing straps, hook & loop, minor clothing, etc... Obviously if this is more your expertise, get one that you know you'll love and have great use of.
  • Cutting Mat - Useful for both the foamsmith and the needlework crafters. I've used both the Fiskars and the US Art Supply brands. Personally the US Art Supply one is way better IMO. It holds up to more cuts and abuse.

    Here are some helpful options for your search for EVA foam. Hopefully one of the stores I list here will be some-what local for you. Home Depot, Lowes, 5 Below, BJ's, Costco, Walmart, & Harbor Freight all carry the EVA (floor mat) foam. I have personally purchased and used foam from all of these locations.

  • Your standard craft foam (from craft stores like JoAnne's or Michaels) will be anywhere between 2mm - 6mm. These are great for accent pieces or adding fine details. Keep in mind anything under 8mm will need some sort of rigid structure in order to maintain a good shape for armor. (like cardboard or something) FYI - Joanne's now carries the Yaya Han branded EVA foam mats in various thicknesses.
  • Harbor Freight has 4 (24"x24") tiles for $8.99 and sometimes have an additional 20% off coupon circulating around. The back of their EVA foam is a standard heat treated texture. They also carry a 72" long (8mm) foam roll with a heat treated diamond patterned back for $9.99.
  • At BJ's & Costco, I've bought some from these places as well, they carry 8 (24"x24") tiles for $9.89. But people have complained of its quality. (I personally have never had any notable issues with them.) The back of their EVA foam is generally heat treated usually w/ a diamond pattern.
  • Home Depot & Lowes carries the 4 pack (25"x25") anywhere between $20 - $25. The back of their EVA foam is a standard heat treated texture. Though these seem fine, they are more expensive and are just like the ones at Harbor Freight.Walmart carries a 12 pack (24"x24") for around $18 - $20. The back of their EVA foam is the typical heat treated texture.
  • 5 Below carries single tiles (no packs) (multiple colors) for $5.00. Same as the others, standard heat treated texture on the other side.
  • TNT Cosplay Supply carries various sizes and thicknesses of EVA/Craft foam without the heat treatment backing. This is especially good if you don't want to have to deal with sanding down the heat treated backing to help glue adhere better. They are more expensive, but the quality is always great.

    Hope this helps.

u/windupmonkeys · 4 pointsr/modelmakers

Honestly, I rarely bother with masks, even on tanks.

For tanks, you can also use either purpose designed or architectural/drafting circle templates like these as a spraying stencil.

But honestly, in most instances I just spray the center/hub and then finish off with a brush. Faster, even if more tedious.

A summary of most of the above is further provided here.

u/chelseabiscuit · 4 pointsr/CrossStitch

These boxes from Amazon come with 100 plastic bobbins and a set of DMC stickers.

I used to have have half my floss stored in a sewing box sorted by color family until that became to full more to house any more, and the other half was collected in a big black hole of plastic grocery bag. I can’t express enough how good this organization feels!

u/coolcool23 · 3 pointsr/drums

Really not hard at all with a compass cutter or something similar. I think on my old kit I actually used a legit drawing compas with a razor blade clamped into it or something. Just measure out the diameter/radius, pick your center and go. You can buy rings that snap in to make it look nice and give it strength:

u/cualcrees · 3 pointsr/PSVR

I’m using Velcro, that way, I can adjust or remove the camera whenever I need to.

u/Borsaid · 3 pointsr/Ubiquiti

Unless you're going to be doing a lot of them, I'm going to just recommend something like these

u/robododo · 3 pointsr/WaltDisneyWorld

Yeah, you gotta get the locking pin backs.

Something like this: Lapel Pin - Locking Pin Backs (Pin Keepers)

u/vulchiegoodness · 3 pointsr/konmari

>since I'm short all of them were too long.

it doesnt take much to hem them. you can even get iron-fused tape and just go at it with an iron. its not a permanent fix, but at least you can wear it and decide if you want to properly get it hemmed, or donate it.

>more suited for a girl in her early 20s instead of her late 20s.

Do you like it? then its suited for you. imho. .

u/gutsack · 3 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Thanks! It's the Alvin 18x24" self-healing:

u/HYVR · 3 pointsr/OculusQuest

I would say it's as close to the vive w/ DAS as the quest could be comfort-wise, an immense improvement overall. The face cushion of the vive is more plush but that's the only difference IMO.

Links are in the description, but here they are as well:

u/LambeosaurusBFG · 3 pointsr/MTB

I used double sided Velcro “tape” a few weeks ago. Wrapped it twice around my leg at different heights and it worked perfectly. Can get a roll of it for $6-$7 and it has a ton of other nice uses.

VELCRO Brand - ONE-WRAP Roll, Double-Sided, Self Gripping Multi-Purpose Hook and Loop Tape, Reusable, 12' x 3/4" Roll - Black

u/appleandcheddar · 3 pointsr/gifs

It's $5 on Amazon

u/rock_hard_member · 3 pointsr/foamcore

This is the one I got that /u/chasem13 had for his foamcore the other week. It definitely takes multiple passes, easiest if the last one is from the back side but it works well.

u/Waffl6 · 3 pointsr/motorcycles

Hmm, this reminds me... Someone needs to make a patch for a "YouTube Certified Motorcycle Technician" or something like that "YouTube Certified Master Automobile Technician" thing because I'd buy it...

u/Sanklo · 3 pointsr/EDC

Okay, just received confirmation from my wife that she got it on Etsy a while back. It also appears to be available through Amazon.

Red Stapler "Come and Take It" Morale Patch. Perfect for your Tactical Military Army Gear, Backpack, Operator Baseball Cap, Plate Carrier or Vest. 2x3" Hook and Loop Patch. Made in the USA

u/secret_sciences · 3 pointsr/AJelqForYou

I use a couple of these for tightening the string, I don't have to mess with the rods.

u/dexa_scantron · 3 pointsr/xxfitness

These are the best for threading: Easy Threader Flexible Needle Drawstring replacement and craft tool

And you can buy cord anywhere, for example: Wrights Drawstring Cord, 1/4-Inch, Black

u/uberares · 3 pointsr/MINI
u/Skittlebrau46 · 3 pointsr/ender3

Looks like a cutting mat. I’ve got a great big one that covers my whole desk. Black on one side, and green on the other. They work really well as basic worktable surfaces.

US Art Supply 24" x 36" GREEN/BLACK Professional Self Healing 5-Ply Double Sided Durable Non-Slip PVC Cutting Mat Great for Scrapbooking, Quilting, Sewing and all Arts & Crafts Projects

u/NepEnut · 3 pointsr/CrossStitch

I'd recommend putting them on some plastic thread bobbins. You can get a bunch on Amazon for like $5 or $6 bucks. You can write the thread number in sharpie on the bobbin if you need to keep track.

The other thing would be to get a thread organizer. I've got two of these and they're pretty great. It comes with the thread bobbins and stickers w/ DMC numbers on them as well.

u/Adrynal · 3 pointsr/WaltDisneyWorld

The cast members who will trade to you will (should) have a special tag at the end of their lanyard that says something to the effect of "Hey, I'll trade pins with you!"

Maybe someone has a picture of what I'm talking about?

Re: putting your pins on a backpack, I really like this idea! :D You can purchase lockable backs for your pins at any of the shops at WDW. I'm also relatively certain you can find them cheaper online.

Something like this although I can't guarantee -these- will work with Disney pins, the ones in the Disney shops definitely will.

If you use these locking backs, then you don't have to worry about them falling off of your backpack!

u/frostbytetek · 2 pointsr/streetwear

Don't know if there's an easy free option but there's this: Easy Threader

u/TornFromTheWomb · 2 pointsr/fixit

This is what I was talking about:

I feel like enough of those, along with some good paracord and a properly anchored hook, would do the job.

u/ohlopsm · 2 pointsr/chastity

Looks like some of THIS cut to length + some of THIS = What the guy in your picture is wearing.

u/besna · 2 pointsr/notebooks

You could just buy your favorite one without perforations and buy something like this: amazon "wheel cutter perforation" and perhaps a metal ruler. With them you can make your own perforated pages.

u/winstonsdog · 2 pointsr/foamcore

I used this. Took a few tries on scrap foamcore to get the hang of it, but really happy in the end.

OLFA 9911 CMP-1 Compass Circle Cutter

u/Zgoldenlion · 2 pointsr/OculusQuest

The felt does both. The glass spacer doesn’t have the curve that follows the edge of the headset so the felt blocks light and gets the proper angle so the pad is actually resting on something. Everything is fastened by the adhesive of the felt or Velcro but I did use string to tighten a few places.

I use VELCRO Brand Industrial Strength Fasteners | Stick-On Adhesive | Professional Grade Heavy Duty Strength Holds up to 10 lbs on Smooth Surfaces | Indoor Outdoor Use | 4 x 2 inch Strips, 4 Sets, Black

This is the same Velcro I used to attach DAS it’s easy to cut to shape and applies very firmly.

u/Magjua · 2 pointsr/rawdenim

I would say they are worth it, lost my Taylor Swift pin with a normal back. You can also get some with a screw.

u/crystalmerchant · 2 pointsr/modelmakers

Measure and draw would work too! Actually that's what I did for the roundels -- found comparable sized circle shapes around the bench (bottle cap, pencil eraser, etc) and used them to trace circles onto the tape to cut out the roundel stencils. Figured out later that a compass cutter probably would have saved a lot of time and been more precise.

u/WindWalkerWhoosh · 2 pointsr/SomebodyMakeThis

Since you're amazingly lazy, here:

u/Graphikuh · 2 pointsr/WaltDisneyWorld

You can get them at the parks, or if you want to get some beforehand they have them on Amazon. Here are some:

They also sell the official Disney ones on Amazon, although they are more expensive.

u/pork-belly · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

-cable tray(s) $22 - perfect for screwing into a think desk like yours, power strips can live in here as well

-nylon/velcro ties $7 - possibly cheaper at your local hardware store

With kush white walls like that a lil cable management might improve how you feel walking in every day!

Nice setup. Foot warmer could use some RGB tho

u/sekazi · 2 pointsr/OculusQuest

This is my list.
4x2" Industrial Velcro
Tri-Glide Slide
1.5" Wide One Wrap Velcro

Other people use a D-Ring instead but I prefer the look of the tri-glide slide instead. You need to make sure to use Industrial Velcro for the attachment of the DAS.

Here is what mine looks like

u/deekster_caddy · 2 pointsr/Dashcam

Try some 3M dual lock pads like they use on the back of the EZpass transponders and such. I use these on my cam and it's very easy to take off and put back up.

u/Picarro · 2 pointsr/woodworking

Don't bother. Unless you are trying, actually setting fire to a wooden countertop with a soldering iron is pretty damn hard. You would have to jam it into a heap of shavings to light a fire with it. If you really want to, you can get a mat like this.

u/watchglass1 · 2 pointsr/gadgets

It is a Fiskars 45mm Contour Rotary Cutter. $10 at Amazon or Walmart. I use it on a X-acto selfhealing mat. You have to make sure you get the right one that does not have ink that rubs off easily. A labmate ordered a replacement that smudged all over some plates. Here is the exact model I have: X7761 12x18in

u/manwatchingfire · 2 pointsr/whatisthisthing

After googling your keywords this looks different but similar.
So a smaller version for smaller gromets?
When you squeeze the handle only the little bump touches the other side. Like it would make a dent in a piece of paper

u/deviationer · 2 pointsr/vive_vr
u/blueunitzero · 2 pointsr/SonicTempleFestival

> 5). Don't wear anything with spikes.

im making a denim vest with the little square pyramid studs on it for the show right now lol

>10). They say keep your wristband on for the duration of the festival, but honestly if you leave it a little loose you can manage to get it on and off at the beginning and end of the day.


u/YankeeQuebec · 2 pointsr/Multicopter

That's way expensive. You can pick these up at a craft store like Michael's or Joann fabrics for way less. Here they are on amazon for a quarter of the price.

u/SoriAryl · 2 pointsr/AirForce

These might help:

I've used them to secure my Nephew's Disney Pins while at Disneyland

u/mudduck2 · 2 pointsr/AirForce

Get these

Tie this knot in your tie

See if these people can help with the jacket or find someone in Korea to help you get a tailor made jacket.

u/Potato466 · 2 pointsr/WindowsMR

I would use double sided tape of some sort to make-shift put it back on, or a better option would be to purchase adhesive Velcro straps like these:

u/Crow486 · 2 pointsr/guns

Amazon. I always had one on my desk at work. Bought that for my work backpack.

u/AlphaDeathclaw · 2 pointsr/DnD
u/jesuspants · 2 pointsr/audioengineering

They make easy buttons that you can custom load audio.

u/yourock_rock · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

You can get hemming tape that doesn't require sewing - you just place it between the fabric and iron it, which melts the adhesive. Like this It's really nice if you don't/can't sew and just need to make a straight edge

u/PM_ME_AZNBOOBIES · 2 pointsr/Workspaces

USB docking station may help or any type of docking station

Little things can help like :

-cable length (use length you need not anything longer; especially for the permanent fixtures that won't require alot of moving)

-bundle the wires up. I'll provide some examples



u/polican · 2 pointsr/Warhammer40k

In addition to whats listed here:

Self Healing Cutting Pad

Roll of paper towels

Exacto Knife with spare blades

Mini Files

Pin Vise (aka Mini Drill)

u/ijssvuur · 2 pointsr/exmormon

Oh yeah, all that blood flowing back into your brain as soon as you stop choking yourself with that stupid tie... These are incredible, but ties and buttoned collars are horrid either way.

u/Cock-Bandit · 2 pointsr/BadDragon

I found some really soft double sided Velcro from the craft store and it works really well with the sport sheet harness and my medium Nova as well as Peirce.

Edit: I believe it's this Velcro

u/massimomorselli · 2 pointsr/Pimax

This is the piece you probably need less. Buy only this

and some strips of double sided Velcro to make it thicker if needed.


use the 18mm as front cover (and a cut of 6mm for the nose)

u/RocketmanZero · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Good observation. This seems to be a standard work matt for doing electronics stuff, I picked mine up at my local hobby shop. Maybe something like this is what your looking for?

u/onajag · 2 pointsr/LifeProTips

Easiest way is to use a threader like this one:

"Plan B" involves undoing a metal hanger, a long shoestring, and piece of masking tape.

u/SoCalDan · 2 pointsr/bjj
u/deepmotion · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Haha, it’s a “mounting system” that I’m actually super happy with!

Just two long pieces of Velcro strapping (about 1” wide) threaded over the desk frame but under the desk top. The Velcro overlaps itself around the bottom of the case, by about 18”. I also stuck a plastic door bumper between the case and the desk leg, to keep the case hanging more or less vertical.

It’s very very solid. Much more than I would have anticipated. I can hit the power button on the case without any movement at all.

Here is an Amazon link to the straps

u/BforBubbles · 2 pointsr/Baking

You can try one of those plastic cutting mats for sewing. One of these some of them are better quality than others, and they come in different sizes.

I roll out my smaller doughs on a silicone baking mat. This is the exact one I have, and I love it!

u/qruxtapose · 2 pointsr/OculusQuest

The long wait for the VRCover drove me to find an alternative so I took a gamble on some Vive face cushions. There are probably better alternatives but here is what I did:


Bought this

and this


I cut the velcro strips into little rectangles and put them on the glasses spacer, then I simply attached the face cushion to spacer. It doesn't fit perfectly, you gotta work it into the correct shape. However I actually dig the foam padding, it's more comfortable than the stock foam and doesn't absorb sweat which I really like. It's not a high quality product though, there is some tearing at the seams but it doesn't seem to be getting any larger. Also depending on how you get the cushion to fit there could be a little leakage on the sides, not much though. I don't know notice it at all while playing. No idea if that makes the Quest vulnerable to sun damage so be careful and don't blame me if you damage your Quest. Lastly, the foam makes wearing certain glasses uncomfortable, I use some thin harry potter style glasses for VR though and they work just fine. Obviously not a perfect solution but it works well for me.


Edit: Just noticing there are Vive Pro cushions (I hadn't noticed before). Those might work out better for glasses. Can't say for sure.

u/FearEngineer · 2 pointsr/boardgames

I'm not really "experienced," but I've made a couple. As far as I know, the best way to figure out how much foamcore you'll need is to plan out your insert before you start. Draw out all the pieces (with measurements), then figure out how they'll be laid out on the size of foamcore you can get, then add some extra in case you screw up (which, if you're anything like me, you will... several times).

As for tools - a utility knife with replaceable blades (and a whole lot of replacement blades), a self-healing cutting mat, an adjustable square, a metal ruler, some good glue, and something to help hold everything together (pins and/or ratchet clamps) are all good things to have on hand.

u/deliciousreindeer · 2 pointsr/hotas

You can remove them but I personally just leave them attached all the time, I don't find that they get in the way of anything. I use this chair for my normal computer stuff too, the brackets haven't changed anything. Here's a picture of how my chair looks with the brackets to give you a better idea (don't mind the messy cables on the floor). My previous chair wasn't as wide as this one, so the brackets kind of squished my legs a little when I was sitting in it, but it's not a problem with my current chair.

The brackets are very sturdy, you can swivel and rotate them but it takes a lot of force to do so. There's no movement at all when I use my joystick. The only thing is with the velcro - over time, after you've attached and un-attached your joystick so many times, it loses its strength, in which case the joystick does wiggle around a little bit. I personally just replace the velcro every once in a while, and that works fine for me. You could try a heavier duty velcro if it's a concern. I've been using this kind and it's been good enough for me. Hope this helps!

u/Zetoa88 · 2 pointsr/CrossStitch

It’s currently out of stock but I would grab one when it’s available again!

u/Gsusruls · 2 pointsr/funny

Looks shockingly similar the button I just bought off of

It allows you to prerecord a sound, so it's like Staples' THAT WAS EASY, except now you can have it say, YOU'RE OLD NOW.

u/Malarowski · 2 pointsr/Curling

So I think people make it sound harder than it is. I ordered this:


Then I made paper cutouts of the rough shape of the sliders I want, transfered that to the teflon (with sharpie or so). Cut it out with a saw roughly and then just sanded with 120 to more precise shape, 200 to make it smooth, 600 to "polish" and then some sheep skin for really smooth edges at the end. The velcro stuff glued on to it out of the box and so far after couple months of curling having no issues with it adhering either to shoe nor teflon. The etched ones were expensive. I switches shoes since so the slider isn't perfect shape anymore, but still works perfectly well for curling so far. I also bought 2-component glue and all kinds of fancy chemicals to make it stick better, but the Chinese velcro has some magic glue on it already. Don't overthink it and just give it a try.

P.S. with size 9, the 12x12 sheet was a bit tight, but should work up to 11 or so, depending what size slider you need. You can probably experiment with the hole in the middle etc. I also purchased these: but they are a bit thin and don't slide fast enough imo, prefer the PTFE 1/4". Feel free to shoot me more questions, but it's really much simpler than it seems and a lot of people make it out to be.

u/amw157 · 2 pointsr/answers

You know they make things specifically for that purpose. I got this one on Amazon. It did its job remarkably well.

The Velcro has a sticky back that will glue to almost any surface. I just prepped the bag and the patches by cleaning them with alcohol. I didn't even have to stitch anything. It glues on very strong. I got it from my local hardware store. I'm sure you can find something similar online Like This

You can buy iron-on hemming tape for situations like this, by the way. Just stick it on the tag and iron it down. It takes a little longer than cutting the tag off, but it helps you avoid sharp-edged tags and lets you continue to read the washing recommendations.

If you want the 'I dont want to see any hanging wires look', you might get good results if you mount the power strip beneath your desk. Since it seems rather large it may be heavy. You can either screw it into your desk or you could try heavy duty Velcro Strips. There are also under desk trays and baskets you can use to just hold everything.

If you dont mind some wires showing, you can try sleeves for the cables and use a cable box for the power strip.

Button Extenders or a small piece of elastic looped (tied or sewn) to make the same thing as this.

An uncomfortable collar does not mean there is discrimination involved. Both seem to be told that they need to wear business / professional attire.

u/Gewehr98 · 1 pointr/legaladvice

There are collar extenders (example) you can put on the top button to bridge the gap, and they're usually covered up by the tie so it looks professional.

Go to your local fabric store and buy a yard of rip-stop nylon for around $5 and a cordlock (or this kit from ripstopbytheroll). If you don't already have one yourself, find a friend or relative that has a sewing machine. Watch this video. In about 20 minutes, you will be the proud owner of a brand new stuff sack that is exactly the right size (with that yard of fabric you can actually make a few stuff sacks!). Then post a picture of your creation over on /r/MYOG and prepare for the onslaught of karma you will receive for your amazing creation!

u/curtaturc · 1 pointr/Coilporn

Get some cord locks like these

Set up a few along the length of the wire and move them back as you go. If you do it right it should keep everything in line pretty well.

u/Jeheh · 1 pointr/Justrolledintotheshop

The YouTube ones are.

I thought this was hysterical the first time I saw one.

u/Eublepharis · 1 pointr/quilting

I used this table and will end up supporting it on both sides with 9 cube shelves which gives a lot a storage. I have a 36 x 24 cutting mat. I read about someone using the cube shelves which makes the table about 36" high so I decided to try it, I like the height and I'm pretty short at just barely 5'4"

I use for cable management and something like depending on the location.

I used to zip tie all the things, but hated having to cut a bunch just to add or remove a cable.

The most standard ruler to start with is a 6"x24".

It will do almost all your cutting, and will adapt to a surprising amount of work.

This will be my next one (cause it is just that cool). But honestly, you have to be able to read measurements off of this. Omnigrid makes the easiest to read, but take a look at different ones and see what is good for YOU!

Florescent Green Ruler


No matter what ruler you get, you can always make them grippier! Try something like these:

Non Slip rings


This is my favorite mat. It has lasted over 20 years. It is thicker than other brands. (and cheaper!)

u/veriix · 1 pointr/Gameboy

I would use something like this plastic velcro which could also give the games a floating effect from the back. You could alternatively use standard velcro but it would be harder to keep them perfectly level.

u/Israel_Madden · 1 pointr/OculusQuest

I bought my Velcro on amazon but I went to Home Depot for a D ring and found the same Velcro there as well

Easy Threader Flexible Needle Drawstring replacement and craft tool by schaller

u/frostytheclownman · 1 pointr/Ultralight

The glue would probably be overdoing it a bit, though it'd depend on the thickness/rigidity of the sheet.

Laser cutters are pretty special bits of equipment. A cheaper option may be to use a circle cutter like this one:

u/_75ayla_ · 1 pointr/CrossStitch

There are 42 reviews on this one and it’s the highest rated on amazon. Do you think this is a good stand?


u/AKidFromKibble · 1 pointr/mechanicalheadpens

Looks like a cutting mat. Think this is it!

u/thebatmannnn · 1 pointr/Patches

you can try something like this, which is attached via adhesives on both the patch and the box. once they are both secured, you can stick the patch on or take it off the box whenever you'd like.

u/AsmodeusDrawsReddit · 1 pointr/stencils

I agree with mr.godonut here. Also using a cutting mat has helped me.

u/CallMeVexed · 1 pointr/midori

This is the tool I use, although it was only $9 when I bought it a couple years ago. It's a fine product, but idk if I'd spend more than $10 for it again. There are similar products on amazon.

It works well. When utilized with a straight edge, it produces a very professional perforation. I can perforate an entire Midori brand refill in ~4 passes w/ moderate to heavy pressure. It's another step in preping my Midori, but I would not call it tedious or troublesome at all.

The only drawback I've experienced is that it may work too well, in that if I keep a perforated page in the notebook and turn past it, the page folds at the perforation line and not at the natural fold of the refill. I used to worry that this would eventually result in one of these pages unintentionally falling out, but nowadays I leave a small section of the pages' top and bottom unperforated to ensure they stay in. It hasn't really been a problem, and I imagine that if you use a tool with wider spaced cutting sections, it would be different.

u/crossedx · 1 pointr/camping

You could try some of that Iron on hemming material to close the hole up.

u/Thethuthinnang · 1 pointr/Atlanta

What kind of altering? If it's just hemming, maybe you could use this stuff to get by in the meantime?

u/Peteostro · 1 pointr/Pimax

I use the DAS that i had for the vive, ordered the 3d printed pieces to hook the pimax to it. Pimax face foam felt good but need the HMD around an inch or two more from my face. Used double sided velcro in between the face foam and HMD and it looks like it just might be enough.

u/oceansRising · 1 pointr/CrossStitch

Check ebay and amazon. This should have everything you need.

P.S The spool things are called bobbins and you can get them in plastic and cardboard form, I personally use cardboard but it doesn't matter that much.

u/kjb27 · 1 pointr/weddingplanning

​So originally, my thought was buying blank seal and send card stock (LCI Paper has blanks that are ready to print) and running them through a laser printer.

After talking with my friend, M, I made an Excel template (Download, and then zoom out til you can see it all!) to give her that kind of outlines it. I created a blank one you can download here. In my head, 1 pixel = 0.01 inch, so each row is .25" high, each column is 0.25" wide, with each square with a dotted outline is one square inch.

Using my Excel sheet mockup (and a bunch of Pinterest inspiration), M created our proofs for a digital printer she works with. Most printers should be able to at least print it, as the full size is 12.75" long by 6" wide, which would be 1 invite to 1 piece of legal sized cardstock. Ideally, they could cut it down to size, and then perforate and fold it for you, but worst case, that part can be done with a paper cutter, self healing mat, bone folder, and perforating tool (I really like this one, but definitely use a ruler or something to guide you as it's pretty easy to curve off track).

The more folds and perforations the printer does, the more expensive it gets, of course, but the design and printing are the hardest parts!

If the bottom of the box is flush and your on hardwood, this is what we use for a very similar problem.

VELCRO Brand - Industrial Strength - 2" x 4" Strips, 4 Sets - Black

u/day1patch · 1 pointr/motorcycles

While the naysayers are right and it's a bit unsafe I recommend strong velcro tape like this, in the case of a crash the battery pack would be ripped off, but under all other conditions that velcro will hold anything securely in place even at speed.

u/oilephant · 1 pointr/fountainpens

I have one that looks similar that is a self healing board. It's basically a rubber mat that you can use to line things up, cut things on etc. If you cut something on top of the board and leave a cut in the rubber, it will smooth itself out after a couple hours.

Link to a self healing mat on amazon:

u/Broncosoozie · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

If everything else about the shirt works for you, you could try these things. Any tie should cover up the fact that they're there...though I'm assuming you want to wear a tie with the shirt, which may not be the case?

u/eminenssi · 1 pointr/food

Well in all fairness, self healing cutting mats have been available for a good while, though I've only heard ones purposed for cutting paper / hobbyist purposes. Googling "self healing cutting mat" gives this amazon hit of a such product, for example.

And for the record, I am not recommending these for cooking use, I have no idea of their toxicity, I've just seen these around in offices I've worked in for at least a decade or so.

u/midnightpictureshow · 1 pointr/DisneyPinSwap

I honestly think you're shilling these all wrong because you're missing the whole point. You keep downplaying that they are magnetic but thats the main selling point of the product.

There are plenty of options for locking pin backs out there (those are three different links), and these screw-on types are actually reviled by many for warping the studs on the back of pins, or leaving dents on it.

Again, the ability to turn pins into magnets is absolutely brilliant. Locking pin backs is not new territory.

u/Kayanota · 1 pointr/knives

I used things like these, my oven, and a YouTube tutorial. Kydex, when heated is very pliable, and cools solid. If you mess up, you can heat and remold again. You only need .06 thickness, any thicker is left to gun holsters. I then use an old belt to help mold a g-clip from a Kydex strip, and thats really it. I haven't bought a sheath in many years. Any further questions, just reply, I'll check back in the morning.

u/CampBenCh · 1 pointr/sex

If you are worried about tying knots (be safe! Have a knife to get out of it quick if needed), try Velcro straps. They work with just one wrap, no knowledge of knots needed, and easy to get someone out. They are also easy to buy at a local hardware store.

u/brusifur · 1 pointr/cosplay

Thanks, I found some felt my mother had from another project, and I think I agree that this is the ideal stuff. I had imagined felt to be more cottony and easily frayed, but it seems really stable.

Have you ever used this iron on hemming tape?
Seems like I might save myself a ton of time if that works reasonably well for this project.

u/wowdoicare · 1 pointr/FJCruiser

Like others have said dog bed with rubber bottom should help. If you want it more secured add this to the bottom of the bed.

u/captaindealbreaker · 1 pointr/audio

To be honest, you're asking a lot for your budget. If you want to sit next to the speaker and be able to listen to it at a reasonable volume, something like this would probably work well enough:

But if you want to be able to actually be active and hear your music, you're going to have to get something much bigger. That said, you can do it without breaking your budget.

My advice would be to by a pair of these:

Power them with this:

And fasten them all together with this stuff (it's incredibly strong, trust me)

That comes in at around $49 and while it's not going to blast your music, it will do you much better than any sub $50 bluetooth speaker.

Now if you're willing to spend some extra money, get one of these:

I can attest from personal experience that it's a pretty powerful little speaker, sounds great, and you can pair two of them for stereo listening.

> This is what I was talking about:
> I feel like enough of those, along with some good paracord and a properly anchored hook, would do the job

Interesting thank you!! That just may do it :D I wish they said what the grommets were made of (am thinking that if they're a weak tin that they'd break easier), though if I order that and have 100 grommets I could literally put like 20 on the thing and use paracord (I've got some on-hand that'd be perfect for this) through them all to make a 'net' at the top that terminates at a hook so I can hang it from a chain (as it'll be an outside punching bag, am hanging it from a tree-limb :) )

u/LunaTardis · 1 pointr/CrossStitch

Hello everyone! I've been having a lot of fun with this latest project. I've learned a lot

  1. Hoops for a project that is over 10 inches both ways sucks.

  2. I love this lap stand that a poster here suggested (thank you whoever it was!! Maybe u/wildviolet ?). Notice how each side is adjustable? That means when I am doing this big project, I can shorten one side, have it sit on the arm of my chair, have the other leg longer the project is the same height, but the whole thing doesn't have to be centered on my lap. That has Really helped with shoulder pain, as I don't have to reach as far to get to the far left (or right) of the frame, and I can still sit in my comfy recliner.

  3. Always check the size of the pattern before you buy it. I thought awww cute... a little bull dog for my friend. Bought it, went to buy materials and it's the largest project I've done to date! I decided to do it anyways, Luckily she can't complain about size as it's a gift ;)

  4. Cats love lap stands. Picture of proof included.

  5. Must have cat free room/space to store lap stand if you have cats. You just can't leave it in your chair, they would get on it way too much.

  6. I love the John James petite needles. I thought they would be too small after they arrived. But after a few weeks of using them on this, they work great! I haven't had an threads break due to the eyes. Every eye fit the needle minder. I even bought some regular size needles to try from john james, but haven't bothered to try them yet.

  7. Magnetic bored is nice to hold the chart. BUT. I highly suggest get one with a stand. The flat laying one gets annoying. So does it being smaller then the paper size, as the edges get all bent up. Maybe I will buy a better one when I can afford it.

  8. the recommended amount of floss sometimes is not near enough. I don't know what they did their calculations on, but woah. I ran out of the main navy blue color by the first page.

  9. Hobby Lobby is MUCH nicer then joann's in my town for cross stitch.

    10 . Hobby lobby has a 90 day return policy. So, after I ran out of floss, I went there, bought a whole handful of the same lot. What I don't use, I can return! As long as I don't put it on a bobbin. This way I make sure to get all I need in the same lot, but don't waste too much money

  10. the bobbin cranks are a waste of money. I will be returning the one I bought. It's just 2 dollars, but it's useless.

    I think that is enough lessons for now. Hope everyone is having a great day.
u/LBGW_experiment · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

Yeah, definitely. I got the Alvin 24"x18" mat and it's $17.66 and Amazon prime. I saw u/pexon had a huge one when he sent me photos of some cable ideas and thought it was perfect for keyboard stuff.

u/1k0nX · 1 pointr/Vive

I find the upside-down, shin-mounted controller method the most natural for foot tracking too. I've had good luck with one inch velcro one-wrap. One strip between the trigger and closest sensor, and one higher up the leg/controller.

The Vive wand naturally wants to settle off the actual bone of the shin towards the outside of the leg and foot. This position also seems to be a little less prone to occlusion issues.

I'm going to pick up a pair of the flipsteady VCM1 controller mounts a user posted below since they look nice and sturdy.

Official lighthouse-enabled foot-tracking is probably on the way, but it's nice to experiment until then!

u/MrGollyWobbles · 1 pointr/securityguards

I've used this to add velcro to a bunch of stuff. Super strong and reasonably priced. I needed to add a cloth badge onto the front of my carrier and couldn't find way to make it easy to remove. Worked very well. I've even had leftover velcro that I have used for other projects.

u/elfthehunter · 0 pointsr/videos

I mean, can't they change their company name? I guess its probably not cheap, but then this is a problem literally because they have been too successful in their marketing

edit: Maybe I'm wrong, not an expert, but it seems to me they are in this predicament because they advertised their products as Velcro, not Velcro hook and loop.

None of them list hook and loop anywhere, though to their credit they do list Velcro BRAND very clearly. And one of them does mention the product type as fastener. They should start advertising and packaging them as Velco brand hook and loop fasteners. That way if someone challenges their trademark in court, they can point out that every single one of their product's promotional material clearly separates the product from the company - right now, that's not clear in their own marketing (outside this video of course).
