Hellcat ALICE Pack

Back in 2011 Rod Teague of the Liberty Tree blog posted his tutorial on how to build what he calls the “Hellcat” ALICE pack. The Hellcat ALICE combines parts from recent MOLLE II rucksacks with the old standby ALICE pack. It’s an excellent blend of modern and older technology and has proven to be po ...

Introduction There has been a gratifying explosion in the availability of low cost temperature controllers in the past couple of years from which the homebrewing and cooking communities have especially benefitted.

Elevator Stiffeners

Today I organized and trimmed all the elevator stiffeners. It took a little time to identify all the different stiffeners. Best thing to do is hold up the stiffeners to the skin to help make sure you’ve correctly identified the stiffener. One thing to note is the drawing shows that for some of the s ...

Underbody Aero Part 1 (of 3?)

Since I basically ran out of reasonable projects on the Miata, I decided to start going a little crazy. That means it's time to clean up my aerodynamics with a full undertray. I can somewhat justify this because the small factory undertray was missing from the vehicle, and because racecars have unde ...

Aviation Snips Are Colour-Coded For A Reason: Use The Correct One

Aviation snips, also known as compound snips, are ideal for cutting aluminium and sheet metal. Their handles are colour-coded, and it’s not just for decoration. Here’s how to choose the right snips for the job using the correct colour designation. More »

20110730 - yard sale booty - $15-$20 of tools, mostly metal working, rivet gun, in 1 of 4 stacking bins ($5) - IMG_3404

The day I was about go to about repairing my gutters -- is the day I run into some gutter and metal tools at a yard sale. I ended up not using any of them that day, but still.

The guy demonstrated how to use a rivet gun to me. For $3, I now have the knowledge and ability to rivet metal, as well as 50 rivets. This would cost $7.60 new.

He demonstrated the gutter crimper -- I doubt I will ever use that, but it's good to know. They cost $27 new, and he threw it in for free.

The aluminum/aviation/compound-action snips are just badass snips for making powerful cuts into metal. He sold 2 to me for $2, which is only about half price, but still. They seemi quit epowerful.

But the best are the "scissors", which are actually aluminum snips. $27 new, sold for $8. Not quite as powerful as the green/yellow compound-action snips -- but the blade is way longer, so this is far more convenient to use when it's strong enough to get through things. I've already usedit several times. It's like a pair of scissors with full tang blades or something. It's pretty badass. I cut through a metal candle container with great ease. I used it to cut our gutter drain spout that we bought a few weeks later. Good stuff.

The "double-dong pizza cutter" is for removing screens. I have no clue about that. They only cost $2.40 new, and he threw it in for free, so I'll take it. But I don't know that I'll ever *use* it.

Also, for $5 he sold us 4 stacking bins. I searched a lot on the internet and could not find 4 comparaible bins for cheaper than $80, which seems insane. I split it into 2 stacks of 2 -- one on my coffee table (conveniently holds my box-of-cameras AND our water jugs), and one on a tall shelf, where it greatly inreases the space efficiency.

John The Canadien told me, "That's some good binnin, boys!", to which I responded, "Just call me Binnin Laden."
