Been doing a high school welding course for nearly a year now. Any tips on stick welding?

I disagree with this. Not to be disrespectful but auto dark lenses are available every where now. They are the best thing available and should be put to use.
I thought the cunt hair was a strictly Dutch unit of measurement. I heard it a lot when I worked in the paper industry

>He verrekte kut draai de pulper eens een kuthaar verder los!
Learn how to look at a weld and know exactly what you did wrong. For example, I know from looking at your pic that your travel speed was inconsistent on that bead. Is that a 6010/6011 bead?
You litterly just brought up why that's a horrific idea.
6010 the faster you whip the faster it cools. Go back over the puddle just a bit more than you think you should, keep an eye on the puddle and whip it good.

Welcome to woodworking general, here we discuss the working of wood and the tools and techniques of working wood. So far we tend to be mostly hand tool folk with a slant towards cabinetry and carving but all are welcome and we have some capable power tool folk amount our ranks. General carpentry question such as framing/decking/general construction seems to get a better response in the /qtddtot/ or /sqt/.

The Essential /wwg/ library.
Tage Frid Teaches Woodworking, gives you everything you need and shows you how to do it multiple ways from hand tools to power tools and gives you the knowledge to determine which is best, and then he teaches you how to apply what you learned.

Chris Pye wrote the book on carviing and keeps on writing them.

I wouldnt use old dull blades. Its unsafe.
Aside from that, looks like you have a lot of projects ahead of you!
I have that table saw, I got it for I don't know, maybe $20 4 or 5 years ago in that exact configuration.
Large and heavy enough to be inconvenient but not heavy and powerful enough to show for it.
I used it for flooring 4 years ago, was sitting since until I got around to removing the base and putting it on a wooden stand I made. I can tip it on it's side for storage and roll it out and just tip it onto my workmate to use it now at least.
I don't exactly wood work, I work with wood frequently, but I hardly do fine work out of raw material beside one thing recently.
Beats not having one.
When buying carbide scrapers for my lathe should I look solely at the brands that use a flat bottom or completely square shank instead of the round shank? Is it beneficial to have that extra help keeping the bit flat against the tool rest or is there a reason I would want to be able to turn it?
Get a little booty-tickled at some truth getting dropped there or something?
Yeah looks like you done alright considering.

>>It's an off-the-shelf phone screen made by Sharp
>So tecnically you could use a 10-12 inches tablet screen there?

Kindasorta, but the fpga on the mainboard is programmed for the sharp lcd, so you'd need to find a replacement with the same connector, pinout and resolution. Then you'd need an entirely new printer frame to house the bigger lcd and the print resolution will be less due to the bigger pixel size... it's not worth it.


Yeah it's true, thats why i mentioned the original photon instead of the S. I've dealt with anycubic's support, they're sufficiently chinky. Do you have a Mars? How well does the lid seal off fumes and is it a hassle to open with contaminated hands?
>Any specific things I should be aware about regarding it?
Half of the ones that have shipped have built-in DRM where the machine needs internet access to re-register itself within a specified timeframe. Some have said it's every 6 months, some have said it's yearly. And it's unclear as to which firmware version is doing it or if you can flash to a different firmware version that doesn't do it.
2nd print was a success now that i've cleaned them
was in a hurry to get the printing on the way so i used the chitubox autosupport and had some retarded supports
i'm guessing it's better to hand place the supports on minis? or just don't be in a hurry?
Always, always better to place manual supports in chitubox for minis. Chitubox will -always- miss islands. The worst thing is wasted resin from your own mistakes.
Put heavy supports on the connections closest to the bed, usually the bottom of the base or feet/anything that would be flat on the table that can be sanded easily. Medium supports on significant islands like elbows or pommels, and light supports for everything else.
Start with this video and watch his series on support placement https://youtu.be/TTZpvhfaNWY
Then run your sliced file through the photon validation tool to check for and auto-fix small islands.
For further help with resin printing for minis, check the 3dprinted mini Reddit and/or join the discord, everyone is very helpful

My new rain cover is installed. I put a new guide wire in the middle 3 feet above the other ones now the plastic is on top of the wire and instead of below, faster and should last longer. This is good for wins up to 1.5 miles an hour. With stronger tape 1.6 miles an hour.

Hey guys I have a Magnavox HDTV that I've been trying to fix for awhile now.It is stuck in demo mode where the screen just changes colors and I have tried using a universal control to get it out but no luck.So I was wondering if you guys could help me out with this problem I would really appreciate it.

Pretty much this.
Back to who?
Yeah really not much help unfortunately and I'm starting to think it might be a hardware problem at this point.
Could that be possible that the hardware is causing the tv to be stuck on service mode?
You might have to get the original control to get it out that service mode

Go to a doctor you idiot. You can get steroid cream to stretch the skin. You don't need a unnecessary surgical procedure.

Why would you age adjust for suicide?
Almost like white men have more stress because they work and keep everyone afloat, yet continually get shit on by those they provide for.
I was by myself troubleshooting a security camera system for a section 8 housing project. I was on a roof, and a state away from the shop. This large group of kids started chucking rocks at me. I got lucky they got bored after a while and they didn't think to knock my ladder over. I was yelling at them and no adults anywhere. Had to walk around a chimney, as they ran around the house trying to get line of sight on me. Little bastards.
>engineering around niggers
good luck, niggers find a way.
>Why would you age adjust for suicide
If a given demographic is younger/older than another on average, you'd have to adjust for that because suicide rates are correlated with age.

Is it a stupid idea to try building an unreinforced brick house if I live in an earthquake zone?

up to 5.0, you prob can make it. Over 7.0, forget about it, seriously
Traditional Hydraulic Lime mortar is actually somewhat flexible.
Older buildings sometimes have outlasted newer buildings made with modern mortar and cements, because the flexible mortar allowed the walls to settle instead of the walls just developing huge cracks do to poor foundations or soil conditions.
I believe this has even been mentioned in relation to some of the fortresses in Wallachia built by Vlad III Dracula.
u do know u can reinforce bricks. like make pillars fill them with rebar
>use rubber bricks
>melt into place
>no mortar

House will just dance around during earthquake

Why does the european labor working class all wear the same clothes?

I usually wear jeans and a t-shirt. Do the Europeans know something that I do not? Should I get clothes like they have?

>Don't the company provide work clothes for you?

Most of the time, no. At the very most they'll provide PPE (yellow vest, helmet, goggles, gloves) but not boots or carthartts. Workers are free to wear whatever so long as it's inside the dress code, so you can have people wearing brown carthartts next to people in jean overalls and blue jumpsuits. In my experience the only requirement is that the job ID is visible, but this is a new thing since most of the time access control isn't a problem.

Sometimes factory workers get a standard uniform but it's 50/50 depending on the firm.
because working near moving machinery including regular cars requires reflective elements on your clothing as safety standard and most people are lazy carrying extra yellow vest when they can get 'work' clothes
And even farther back in history race and religion was analogous to social class. See Ancient Egypt and the caste system in India.
People that do labor are ironically not working class in most of europe.
