I took some welding classes for about 2 months at a community college. Ended up dropping out cuz I couldn't make the hour trip each way 5 days a week while also working. Plus I just wasn't that great at it. You better have good fine motor control and an eye for detail. Stick welding is a good place to start, especially if you can't afford to go to school or have time to and are more of a hobbyist instead of someone who wants to make a career of it. A lot less dangerous than oxyfuel and gmaw/smaw. Though gmaw is probably the easiest to learn. As for a place to start, I'm sure there's a trade school near you. You can kind of teach yourself stick on the Internet but you really need a professional to guide you if you want quality welds. Plus this shit is dangerous man, you're dealing with temperature high enough to bond and separate metal plus said molten metal plus all the gases and shit. It's no joke. Trade school is also discouraging because most of your class is doing it for the certificate and already know how to weld because their dad does construction or some shit but nowadays most places need you to have a certificate for legal reasons.

Sorry for the wall of text kind of tipsy. Good luck

Welding is incredibly easy, if you have what you need.
If you don't gotta decide what kind of welding you want to do, table/hand tools, etc. Grinder, sander, saw, anvil; all pretty useful.
As far as actual welding like >>36495 said stick (arc) welding is probably best, portable, but high temps so will melt metals. Gmaw is best to learn first, easier to control heat and general weld. Gtaw is for thin and detailed welds, which is probably what you'd need for a bike.
Schooling would most likely be essential no matter what. The investment would be better than having to get everything and have no idea. Metal is also pretty expensive.

PO box won't do shit unless you're using a stolen card or fake IDs or something to pay for it.

Besides it won't be that risk anyway, I'm sure USPS can't open mail without a warrant and i think they do an express overnight flight which cuts down on the time your package will be in the sorting office.

how do, /howto/? my google-fu has failed, so now i come to you.

for a long while now, i've wanted to get into blacksmithing, but i haven't a clue where to begin. i know the basics- acquire/build a forge, anvil, hammer, tongs, water trough... but i don't know the specifics of those.
what size/weight of hammer? what variety of tongs? where the hell do i get an anvil, and how big do i need it?
the trough is easy enough- 2"x6" or 2"x12" boards cut and assembled, with a sealer, filled with water, big enough for whatever i'm gonna be hammering. the forge seems straightforward, like a big brick bbq pit with a bellows, filled with coal, and a nice big hood to protect the flames from rain and such.

any recommendations for the hardware? any recommendations for metal supplies? i can't exactly grab a pick and go wandering the countryside chipping away at mountains.

once i'm up and running (assuming that ever happens), i'll be sure to take plenty of pics as i learn the nigh-extinct trade and share my learnings with all y'all

Sounds to me like you've got the fire, but you've still got some serious research to do. Don't worry, there's a steep learning curve, but it's totally worth it. I've been forging knives and other smallish things for the past 6 years or so, and started with just reading on the internet.

So lets keep it simple for now, I'll attach some links to good sources of more info, there's a TON of it if you know where to look.

To begin, you need to have a little clearer idea of what you want to do to determine what kind of setup you want. If you just want to make knives, or cute little puppy keychains or other small stuff, you really don't need much. But if you're planning on forging wrought iron gates for your country estate, you'll need much more overhead.
Assuming you just want to do little stuff, you really don't need much. Hell, I got by for a year or so using a little piece of railroad track as an anvil and a propane torch stuck into a couple hollowed out ceramic bricks. Also, if you want to make anything look clean and/or shiney, you'll need to have some grinding tools. At the very least a set of files and patience. It's amazing the kind of stuff you can do even with improvised tools, to an extent.

But if you really are looking to bite the bullet and drop some cash on a shop, here's my recommendations: Don't fuck around with coal. It's dirty, heavy, bad for the environment, and really finnicky to work with. This is the 21st century, go buy/make a propane forge. You'll thank yourself you did. For a hammer, just about anything (besides your everyday claw hammer) will work. Most people rely heavily on a cross peen, some use ball peens. Something with a head between 1-2lbs is best for extensive use, heavier will wear you out and be harder to be accurate with, lighter and you'll wear yourself out by trying to make it move the metal at all. just make sure you don't try to forge like the dudes in your picture, that's a great way to blow out a shoulder.

Metal is the easiest thing to come by. If you're trying to make something like a knife or axe that needs to hold an edge, you need a high carbon steel. Old files and car springs work really well and you can get them for next to nothing. But if you're just making decorative or architectural stuff, any kind of steel will do. Rebar is super cheap and available, especially around construction sites. Or you can always buy steel stock from a supplier. For high carbon steel, fastenal is a good company to buy smallish amounts from.

This trade is anything but extinct. There are blacksmiths all over the fuckin place, you jsut have to find them, If you're in america, especially the South or Pacific Northwest, you can find all sorts of blacksmiths and bladesmiths. Odds are there's a local blacksmithing group in your area that meets on a regular basis. Blacksmiths are good guys, generally down to earth and happy to share knowledge and tips.

Here are a few links to get you started:

rebar wont hold and edge. files or like he said brake springs.
if you have a junk yard around you and dont plan to drop the money to build a gas forge, you can make a brake drum forge pretty simple with instructions on youtube. budget wise, grabbing tools from garage sales or second hand stores is not a bad idea. finding the local junk yard is probably a good idea too.

in short, brake drum some 2inch plumming pipe with a t fitting and cap to create an ash catcher and a hair dryer to act as your billow

for shits and giggles i wanted to see what ebay wanted for an anvil, surprissingly cheap at. idk how big you want but a 55lb one for ~70 bucks shipped.

It's >>36502 me again.

Rebar works for most things, but not anything with an edge.

And another note about anvils. do not. DO NOT. but a cast iron anvil. ever. EVER. if your anvil says "cast iron" or "china" anywhere on it, it isn't an anvil, just a very heavy doorstop. And don't buy anvils on ebay, the shipping alone generally costs more than they're worth. Craigslist sometimes has anvils pop up, that's how I got mine, but its rare. Fleamarkets also sometimes have decent deals on anvils, although the people who have them usually charge out the ass for them. It's simplest to just get a block of steel froma junkyard or use some RR track or even some heavy I-beam (although it'll ring like fuck) until you can drop at least a couple hundred on a decent anvil.

If you do construction and want to use scrap that's laying around, the long pins they use to hold concrete forms in place are usually semi-decent steel. Decent enough to get an edge.

When in doubt if scrap can be used for a blade, take a little piece of your mystery steel and heat a couple inches of it until its decently orange (a magnet shouldn't stick) and then dip it in cold water. Then put the end of the quenched section in a vice and try to bend it. If it snaps clean, you can probably work with it. If it just bends, well then you're SOL.

Any other questions you've got I'll be happy to answer.

>This isn't a skill where knowledge is useful, It's all bout dem feels.
Ehhh, you kinda need knowledge of how the pins work. It's helpful to have some idea of the theory, so you're not applying way too much torque. And paperclips are pretty shitty since they're not strong, usually wider than the keyhole, and is very difficult to fashion into different picks. Screwdrivers are also shitty since your hand is in the way of the pick.

Pick sets with a variety of picks and toque wrenches are pretty cheap. If you can't afford it, try to get a hold of spring steal (Especially streetsweeper bristles). Some advice: Just because you can flatten a paperclip doesn't mean it's a good idea to use. That shit breaks off in the lock. Bobby pins are definitely better for that.

This is pretty much the bible of lockpicking:

Of course, bump keys are all the rage nowadays.

you need two things to pick a lock, the pick itself and a tension tool. too my knowledge there is only 1 or 2 locks the you can pick with a bobby pin or paperclip. your better off getting some materials and fabricating your own or you can buy simple kits off the net for like $20. there are some good guides on youtube but you can sift through the crap. this is not an easy skill to master, i used to spend hours a day on it for a few months to get proficient at it when i was doing my locksmithing apprenticeship

Pins go up and down, The lock goes left to right in an angular moment, If you need more than that or need help to figure that out, Then you have no business breaking into other people property. Chances are if you can' t work it out yourself then as soon as you bother you will probably get arrested.

If it's your own property then I'm certain you can get your hands on a hammer or even a rock. since it's yours, you won't care if the container is broken.

freon with a hammer and chisel.
Or a decent bolt cutter if you're going up against pad locks. Angle grinders can do some pretty cool things, but they need power, and they're loud as hell.
Finally, if you really need to get into something and nothing else is cutting it. Use a thermal lance. There's not a whole lot that will stop you, lest you're trying to open something crazy like the side of house or a vault door.

If you want to make any decent money doing that you MUST move to LA or New York. The industry basically doesn't exist outside those two cities. 6'5 is def way over the limits of the height that is typically preferred for male models tho...
Are you gay? You have a better chance of getting a job at google than you do breaking into the straight porn scene. But you probably have a shot at booking some gay scenes if you're so inclined. Again, better go to LA if you're serious.
"Lean as fuck" is def not the right descriptor for the vast majority of dudes who can get a job stripping. Male strippers are jacked, bro.

Oh and btw, for all of these fields, men get paid table scraps compared to what their female equivalents make.

Property nigga property.

My parents died and left me roughly £30,000 after tax etc.

I bought a small terraced house in a good location city in England, total cost was around £185,000 and the bank approved my mortgage.

I lived there with three other dudes (no homo) who paid rent. Their rent covered the costs of the house + mortgage payments. So basically I'm just living at the house for free while I work + the house is being paid off by them.

This is the best time to buy a house in the uk as interest is so fucking low. But it'll be going up in 2015 so be careful not to buy an over inflated house in a shit area, do some research nigga.

So basically when I first bought my house I spent 30,000 and I've paid off roughly 12,000 more of mortgage mainly with my house mates rent. Taking into account the increase in my houses price I've got about 50,000 in that house. Fucking big dollah seeming as I work an average job.

So basically I'll carry this on for a while then put a deposit down on a new house, easy mortgage as current house is collateral. Then I rent that nigga, only problem is government stealing ma income tax because rent is classed as income, but I've got a shit job so it doesn't matter my annual income is still low. Anyway I'll buy a new house every five years or so then after twenty years I'll be like 40 years old and I'll either keep making money from the rent or I'll sell all my houses and run off with my like 500k+ and live in asia as a king.

My plan and it's working so far, ask anything nigga.

Thread about fishing.

To start, how do I go about choosing the right bait and lures for the right areas and fish? What equipment does what?

Basically, fly fishing has two fundamentals:

  1. You do not use bait, but flies. These are fur/feathers/artificial fibres tied onto a hook which are used to imitate natural food items or attract/annoy the fish into attacking the fly.

2. You cast using the weight of the line, not the weight of the lure/bait/sinker. The line has a taper which allows it to unroll in a smooth fashing, carrying the fly with it. The fly is attached to the fly line by a shorter length of normal nylon line called the leader.

Fly fishing is regarded as one of the most skillful ways to fish for game fish, e.g. salmon, trout, charr, and many rivers and lochs are fly only.

Pic related: the angler in the picture is midway through a doubly Spey cast, a type of cast used when fishing for salmon on large rivers.

Get a fishing license, if applicable. A nice $$ fine if caught without one.
Know what fish are in the waters. For panfish, like bluegill and green
sunfish a bobber with a chunk or worm on the hook is a good bet, also
with crappie. One may use a small lead bb sinker to keep the bait at the end of the line, there are different sizes of hooks and weights. A good thing is identifying the fish you catch. That is part of the beginning to understand.

Bigger or more is not necessarily better, more nightcrawler/worm may be too
much for small panfish, as well a bigger rod and oversized bobber with a higher pound test line may make things more difficult for beginners, If you have the $ get a rod reel combo, or choose each separate at around that tend match eachother. I like ultra-lite/lite rods with 6 pound test on a open faced reel.

Zebco push button reel and rod combos (bait casting) tend to be difficult to me to use.
One can look for I belie IM-6 graphite rods. Again medium to heavy rods are generally
overkill to new users. Note many sporting goods stores would push the heavier pound
test lines and heavier rods. keep it to unltra light to lite for rods with 6 pound test line.

The packaged fishing kits are a waste and would keep a user from really learning to fish.

For bottom general feeders one can use a hook two split shots, and a bell bullet or sinker. Space the split shots one either side of the sinker so the sinker can move easily, like 7 8 fingers between. Of course a hook at the end of the line with maybe a night crawler worm, or catfish baits, corn is good for carp. Cast and crank reel a couple of times. The reasoning behind this method
of weights is so the slip sinker, the line can move easily without the fish giving much notice, having some slack in the line and watch for the line to move. Tighten slowly then if you feel like a fish is on give a slight but deliberate hook setting by lifting your hand and wrist in one move. No over using your whole body or arm, the slight hookset is usually enough.

Many have the mistake of having the line tight and the fish may notice this and
leave. One note, try to use as little weight as you can get away with. Usually no
need to cast as far out as possible.

Look for ponds and lakes that say catachable trout were released on whatever recent date. Generally use salmon eggs for trout. This method of weight works well, sometimes though a small bobber with a splishot or two further down the line from the bobber and a worm or piece of nightcrawler.

Do invest in a pair of hemostats $3 $4 found in fishing shops, hang these over your neck for easy hook release.

I have seen shops sell those plastic hook removers to people and they do not work well at all.
A second best to the hemostats is needle nose pliers.

>needle nose pliers
I've used these with success (and didn't have them the first time I went out, but fortunately someone there did) and highly recommend you bring at least them. The hook likes to get caught.
