    eBAUMANN:anyone have a sewing machine/the talent to sew a patch/crotch reinforcement into a pair of my shorts?

    edit: gonna try iron-on patch first

    haha thanks joshua
    yeah i'd go with ted and just handsew it. maneuvering a pair of pants/shorts around a sewing machine like that isn't fun. hand sewing is just the answer sometimes.Recluse Designs (constantly under construction)

    I'm not sure where to put this, I figured yall are crafty folk so someone might know. I'm a leather smith, and I've been thinking it might be nice to get out of my workshop on the weekends. I was thinking about taking some stuff over to Harvard Square and setting up a blanket or small table on the sidewalk, just selling simple belts and a few wallets. I'm pretty sure there should be permits involved, so does anyone know what I have to do to get the right stuff and to be legal with this- or if it's even allowed? My Dad used to do it in the 70's, I'm just not trusting his "sell sandals, even cops love sandals" advice haha

    There's a story on the homeless dude who used to sell books in Harvard from last year from that has some info -- you'd have to start with a peddler's permit and a sidewalk obstruction permit it sounds like, and Harvard might not be easy to do legally.

    cool mate, that's no problem. I'll be gone next week but the week after I can do it for sure, just let me know when you want to. You'll have to come to my place- there's a bit of hammering involved and I'll need my tools.

    i can if craig can't. assuming you mean a bike bag i'd still handsew it over using a sewing machine so the lining doesn't get punctured. i could even embroider you something pretty, if you like. :)

    i can basically build a house wire it plumb it and all... also weld.

    got 2 migs, a stick, oxy-acetylene, and with in the next few months i plan on investing in a tungsten inert gas welding device.

    my friend taught me how to weld when i was 17 in the basement of the smfa and im 24 now...

    been doing construction shit since i was 8 with the dad.he also taught me how to work on motorcycles and engines that have carborators

    also i fux wif elektrunekz 4 funz.

    I'm gonna build a legit welding table and ventilation system when i get the tig so i guess i could teach khedz in the future on a buy your own stock and rods basis.

    I cant wait to put stupid gussets on my bikes... I do not have aluminum/stainless experience because it's pretty bad for you.

    When I was in college, I used to shred them fresh with a cheese grater and then simmer them on the stove (or in a cup on a hotplate when I was in the dorms). Add a little whole cloves and powdered nutmeg if you want to make it "orange spice."We'll get you a cat, don't worry -t-honks

    My personal favorite thing to do in the winter with a plethora of citrus fruit is to make candied orange (grapefruit, lemon, etc) peel:

    wash fruit.
    remove peel, in the largest pieces possible. Eat fruit.
    Cover with water, bring to simmer, and simmer 30 min, drain, and simmer in fresh water until tender. Rinse in cold water & remove any goopy pith with a spoon. Cut into strips.
    make simple syrup with sugar equal to volume of peel. Add peel and cook over low heat until all the syrup is absorbed- don't let it burn at the end!

    spread out on wax paper and roll in sugar. let dry for 1 hr. consume.Troglodytarum is latin for troll

    • CommentTimeMay 21st 2012
     
    my suggestion: cut your hole so it's relatively square. then cut out a new piece of drywall with the same thickness as the horse hair plastered wall, mount it to a piece of strapping, and then put the piece of strapping into the hole, with the new piece of drywall mounted outwards, filling your hole. secure the strapping to the wall with two screws, fill in the screw holes with spackle, and then plaster over the edges between your drywall "plug" and the hole. no one will know that there was a giant hole there previously. if this is terribly confusing, i can draw a picture.
