Reading through my digital copy of Make Vol 27, I came across this item:
That looks familiar.
Chris, I think about you every time I cut old antennaes / areals whatever you call them shiny things from a radio that has nice tubes that always fits because they come in a lot of sizes in the same stick!
It works wonders! I dont cut all the way through, just mark it up and then break it.
Why is this a forum topic? It is a master-brilliant walk-through, and should be submitted as a such, so people can find it. What are you doing about that, to fix it, Chris?
This is not a forum post because it was just ment to make fun of rik! I guess people seem to be getting some use out of this one so, ok, ok, I will repost tonight as a proper tip/walkthrough...
ORDER, I SAY!! ORDER!!
Have been putting off cutting some brass tubing for a while now untill finding your Brass Tube Cutting Trick.
It worked a dream - although i found you need a brand new Stanley blade if you want a clean edge.......
......... Maybe the precision Swiss Brass tubing is superior to its neighbouring countries ......... sorry rik
Man, what's your problem there? Your tube seems a little larger in dia, but that shouldn't affect anything. It's not like you are cutting 1/2 (13mm) copper or anything! I only see 2 assumptions:
1) You suck, Hollandase blades suck, the holes in the blade suck or your tube is from some distant galaxy
2) I am truly the son of God and should be worshiped as so.
Those are the only options... I have spoken
I were meant to replace those?! Ya think my boss wil notice?
That is kind of a given. Goes without saying. Heck, serious posts had better announce themselves three days in advance!
BTW: I was not kidding about hard drives. They really were (surplus) benefits from my sysadmin job.
