  1. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Thanks Julie, I would have to agree upon sanding before routing ... a bit silly. Right, the glass bought to measure, that's lame, but not stupid. Well now we just have to see you doin' it ... where's the vid ...
  2. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    "My friends say I'm crazy. So why disappoint them? " Instead you could surprise them ... But if you want too (please do) I am throroughly interested in the process of making a single, double, even tripple glass river table. The wood part I seem to have covered in my head, but the glass to me is a real challenge ...
  3. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Lou, I know, still have a Van, and drove a 950 and a 1000. The 1000 I took to France (1200km ~ 750 miles) in a day. Hughe fun on the smaller roads, but even at 100 m/h there are always idiots which cannot stand being overtaken by something small and nasty
  4. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Yep, to difficult for other countries to build Besides, you didn't need a hughe plant to build one, no bother with a chassis and body ... just a monocock construction ... a pitty the sheet metal was thin and protected poorly
  5. What have you received today?

    Nice the cordless version, Ive got the wired one (Dremel 2000) you'll enjoy that flexible shaft. I changed the head so I do not need to switch those "grips" for every different size drill or other bit's shaft

    Mebby use a 3D view ... 6 sides, which brings it back to 1 model
  7. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    I've got one ... 360ยบ in 3D
  8. What have you received today?

    A drive that is specified as a 500 Gbyte actually contains 500.000.000.000 bytes, and a byte isn't 1000 kbytes Each manufacturer divide the spec for a Gb disk three times by 1000 to show the value in Gbytes, but that's not accurate 1 Gbyte = 1024 Mbyte, 1 Mbyte = 1024 Kbyte 1 Kbyte = 1024 byte thus 500.000.000.000 byte / 1024 = 488.281.250 Kbyte 88.281.250 Kbyte / 1024 = . . . 476.837 Mbyte 476.837 Mbyte / 1024 = . . . . . . 465 Gbyte
  9. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    If the tiles are large, depth of the top you only have the joins to fill between ajoining tiles from front toback... I've thought about safety glass as acounter top ... would that work? Anybody ...
  10. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Never liked tiled counter tops, not hygenic, neither easy to work on, and clean ... I would sooner go for stainless steel, granite, or some other smoothe surface. However, it's your show Looking very promising as kitchen though. What will be in the middle?
  11. To be honest, it doesn't give a clear view on things. MSW is not the only forum for model ship building, so the stats have no real meaning, especially since people tend to stick to their brand(s) and as grant put it, you are depending on availability and known names

    Wimp Or you are sitting to long Ah, mixed up Tintin and Thunderbirds
  13. Never too old to start moving again

    Try to get a mirror on the side so you can check your stance, and the position of your iaito. It's easier to learn an error, than to relearn the correct way to do something. I used to pratice cuts with a heavy wooden boken (2 kg) to strengthen my arms and shoulders. What's the story behind the mats? We just used kneepads ... easier to glide over the floor ... Nice setup though! Thunderbird fan?
  14. You seem to progress nicely with your torture machine .. watch out for your fingers
