  1. What are you talking about? I tried googling “plumbers tape” and all that I could find was PTFE thread tape! Got a better clue of what you mean?
  2. Well, better over shot than under shot! Parts should be fine but, you got a little trimming to do there!
  3. I can’t stand this thing! Aside the poor guy that committed suicide because of it, they incessantly run this commercial until it would drive any sane person nutty!
  4. Really? Nobody’s brought this abomination up yet! I still can’t believe they resurrected this thing again considering it’s history!
  5. Look. I get that this is the “off topic lounge” where anything goes! There’s plenty of fun topics here that I enjoy so I’m not going to “just not look here” as suggested. I was just hoping that maybe the morbid reminder of our mortality could be relegated to a single thread to be added to and perused by anyone wishing to! My thought was, there might be others that may feel like I do so it’s just a suggestion not a demand. I realize that when a kid not part of the clique appears on the playground, there’s going to be pushback. So really, critics, you can back off on the sarcasm! I’m not trying
  6. For all the OCD posters that find it necessary to post here every celebrity death that is already public knowledge thanks to standard news media! Jeez! Thank you for letting me vent! This probably should be in What Irked me Today but figured a separate topic might encourage my point. I like to come here to enhance my enjoyment of the hobby and all I see is dead people!👻
  7. If there was a button, I’d give this comment a “Like”!👍😜
  8. The first time I tried the foil under paint for fine script I was puzzled about how to concentrate an abrasive on such a small area. Then I found in my pencil cup an old eraser “pencil” the kind used by draftsmen back in the day before CAD took over for blueprint drawing. Was able to shape it down to a point fine enough to just rub the paint off the high areas of the script! The abrasive in them are perfect for removal of paint because I think they were designed to remove ink on paper. The one I got I’ve had since my apprentice days many moons ago! A light touch is all you need to remove paint
  9. Well, I used to use it for other things other than models that HL provided. I recall using it recently, maybe a month or two ago for my wife’s baking supplies. I literally just looked at my app and discovered the coupon option is gone! Considering I have a small hobby shop full of kits anyway, don’t really mind not using it for that. They weren’t always the best price or selection. At least in my neck of the woods. Seems their data base was recently hacked too!
  10. Looks like they stopped their 40% coupon at the Stow Ohio location plus the coupon doesn’t show up on my HL app either!
  11. Well now, percentage makes more sense and clears the confusion for me!
  12. Wow! I would have gotten that confused pretty quick! Would not have expected equal parts not to be equal amounts! Thanks for the heads up! What kind of a mess would that have made?
