Ugh, what is it with women and tools. My wife throws our Wusthof knives in the stainless sink on the steel rack ....where they bang against it and all the other knives, forks, pans, etc. Drives me crazy. Then wonders why they're not cutting so good.

I finally threw away the GLASS cutting board she always used.

This thing is easy to use and works wonderfully IMO.

Agreed on the V-type sharpeners. I use a SpyderCo version.

I would definitely recommend the Mpow X3 ANC:
https://www.amazon.com/Mpow-Bluetoot...s%2C168&sr=8-3

These things are awesome and with the current $10 discount, come up to $49

Just received these yesterday:


I ordered 3 ea for L; R; and center channel to replace my old Sony towers and Polk center.

I still need to buy stands, but I can't wait to hear them. Everything I read about the KEF Q150 has me hoping for a great sound and an improvement over my current set up (3.1)

yeah. i have a couple mpow products. wearing some mpow m30 or something right now... wife has the same ones. They went on sale on amazon. iirc she paid around 35...i got the same pair for 20. They're pink, like a dull skin tone pick anyway. I almost didn't order them and she was like "why does it matter?" and i was like "yeah, i guess it really doesn't"....so now i have pink mpow earbuds but they're comfy and sound good

I have on-ear noise cancelling headphones from Mpow. They aren't had at all for the price. I also recommend anything from Taotronics. as far as the inexpensive chinese stuff on Amazon, thier products are a small step above Mpow in build quality and sound, in my experience.

Great printer. I should actually use mine and print something, it just sits around these days.
How long did it take you to put the Chinese erector set together?

I think I'm looking for something more behind the ear (like pic below) because I've never had good luck with the earbud type by themselves.

Is this the 3? 3 v2? Or 3 pro?

Itís a good or great printer? Also I see thereís packages with upgraded parts on Amazon?

Also- another mPow owner here. Love the over the head ANC Pair I got for like $30. Long battery. Great sound. And I enjoy wearing them when Iím using lawn equipment outside

This is a 3 pro 3d. I can't say whether good or great but with zero experience the first print is of much better quality than I expected. All I did is a half assed attempt to level the bed and change some of the settings in the slicer.

The 3 Pro may not be the best printer out there, but it's a great entry-level machine at a good price point and there are tons of upgrades for it and lots of community support. If you so choose you can make into something much better one upgrade at a time.
It does require some attention and tweaking to get the most out of it.
Leveling is very important, take your time getting it right. The right temp settings are also important. Expect to have some meltdowns and waste a lot of filament.

Well 3 batches later, I finally have something drinkable. Even though it did not process how I wanted, and will do one more try with rye before taking a step back and making some beer.

8500 mile review for Lag (hopefully not in lag style).

So far I've logged 8300 miles on the car myself, including the 700 mile drive getting it, and a 3700 mile drive cross country and back over the holidays.

Overall, I really have enjoyed the car's performance and the luxury it offers. The driving experience is amazing steering, handling, and power wise. The seats have been nothing but comfortable for all distances of driving (the bolster adjustment in sport mode is fun), wireless charging is nice, and generally the interior is a nice place to be. Fuel mileage seems to be close to the EPA listing of 17/26 is easily obtainable, even cruising at 80mph.

Pros:
Engine/ power: it rips easily to 60 and still pulls hard to triple digits.
Steering feel and cornering: it corners flat and the steering input and response is great
Braking feel: there is good stopping power and confidence (more in the cons)
Interior comfort: Great seats and easy to use layout, buttons for things you need often ( haven't tried Android Auto to see how it compares, and have had an issue getting the Genesis services to connect)

Cons (and nit picks of mine):
Paint: The paint and some trim (black chrome) seem as fragile as Subaru paint. I have had the car ceramic coated, but still have gotten some scratches after I spent 3 days doing a color correction. (I've also ordered a second set of front black chrome trim to put a front PPF on soon).
Brakes: the US spec ceramic pads leave deposits and create hella vibration under hard braking. I have changed the pads and it still is present under hard braking. I'm waiting on a set of DBA rotors for the front but they're currently on worldwide backorder.
Interior: Like the paint, the black interior seems very susceptible to scuffs and the like.
T/C: This is a con and a gripe, but take it with a grain of salt from my ham fisted driving. Generally it works well, and occasionally at higher speeds it seems to step in too soon in full on mode... but the other day in the rain I had Traction off and stability on and caught a big gap in the concrete and was almost sideways very quickly.
Underbody panels and jacking points: The inner fenders and under body are of these almost felt like covered plastic and it really holds dirt in, also it's all super easy to abrade or snag. I had to plastic weld a small portion after apparently road debris or something put a tear in one panel.


(Mad tyte modz I have done).
Weathertech mats and trunk liner.
Winter tire setup (for now).
G Loc autoX front brake pads. These have made the braking feel tremendously better, but there still is some vibration from the stock rotors I believe.
JB4 tuner, intakes, and plugs. This has completely changed the car. Even on the map 2, that you can run with 93, the car pulls way better. And based on some Mexico experiences, it's pretty close to the numbers they claim.

my commander recently traded in his raptor for a f-250, he couldn't let first sausage have a bigger truck. Stereotypes are sometimes not stereotypes
