  • Goodies!

    One of the packages that I ordered arrived today in a box for Mexican popsicles. I found this hilarious.

    The contents: a speaker grill w/ clips and two chrome momentary switches.

    The clips are designed to be mounted this way:

    But I like them like this :twisted: :

    I also got a drill press the other day for $75. Apparantly the guy that I bought it from only used it for one project, so it's just about new. Would have liked it to be cheaper, but what can you do?



    This not the end of the goodies, I have another box coming probably tomorrow.
    Give me one good reason why I shouldn't reinvent this wheel.

                  Okay, I just got back from my trip to the shakespeare festival in Ashland, Oregon. Waiting for me was one of the three boxes that are coming for me. Rather, it was an absurdly large bubble-wrap envelope.

                  That thing is about the size of my torso. And I have a good-sized torso . I wouldn't complain if it contained something larger, like maybe the wings of a prop plane. Instead it contained these:

                  Now I'm not complaining at all! Shiny! The nut next to them is one of the nuts that I was using before these came. Believe it or not these babies set me back about $7 . I checked around and that's about the going rate. It makes sense, as they are 1/16" short of half an inch, and that's internal diameter. On the outside they're 3/4" in diameter. They're not the cheap kind either; they're fully molded and threaded all the way up. I bought some cheaper/smaller ones that were just a regular nut with a dome attached. I'm using these on my lian-li mod (as yet unnamed) to secure the feet. Linkish?

                  Ashland was great, I saw about 5 plays. While I was there I got just about the nerdiest Henna tattoo ever.

                  These things last for about 3 weeks, so I guess that I better get used to people asking me what they mean :P.

                  I know that I said that one more box was coming, and that's because I thought that there was. I'll explain. I bought 3 things from what I thought was one company, but apparently they placed my orders with three different companies, which in turn are shipping to me. The companies that they placed my order with only do mail/phone order, so I generally avoid them like the plague. I got a better deal than I would get most places anyway, so I'm not too worried about having a middleman.

                      Goodies!

                      My second and third packages arrived today. I found the first one on a post at the end of my driveway. Apparently it had been there all night, as the cardboard was soaked through :x. It contained my $30 Greenlee step bit.

                      Because of the ambiguous description I was led to believe that it had 1/8" stepping, which would make it 1 3/8" or so in diameter, which is what I need. Instead it had 1/32" stepping and went up to 1/2". Don't order from unknown companies unless they provide reasonable return policies and clear descriptions for their products. Never hope for the best, companies almost always err on the side of giving you less than giving you more. I would return it, but there's a $15 restocking fee and $7 shipping there and back. So it would cost as much to have it as to not have it. All of the bits that are the diameter that I need are around $70, so I think that I'll get a circle cutter.

                      Next!

                      Here is my long-awaited prize, the secret to glory: 6-32 threaded rod.

                      Thank goodness it's not bent or anything! Jeez. I honestly don't care too much, as this will be cut into 3/8" sections and threaded into cap nuts with a little lok-tite.

                      Tadow! I didn't actually cut it for this shot, I need to figure out how to do so quickly and accurately. I'll post a guide once I get everything figured out. This will also help a lot with attaching the fan grill I got earlier, as well as any other irregular objects that I need to attach. My problem of how to attach my optical drives to the plexi drive bay on the Ogborz is solved. Awesomeness achieved!

                        Glad to hear that something did go right on the shipping for ya. Can't wait to see what you are going to do with the threaded rod. Keep up with the good work and Happy Modding to ya.

                          Goodies!

                          More goodies today! I got these on Craigslist for $20, and what a steal!

                          Auto paint!
                          The items:
                          1 gallon of reducer
                          1 quart of primer
                          1 liter of clear
                          1/2 gallon of gloss black
                          massive amounts of filters and stir sticks

                          Woot!

                          I think that to buy this stuff new would cost me around $100, so yeah. No idea what I'll paint with it, though.
