Re: Pinchy Palace Journal

These acrylic hinges finally came in from ebay. After looking at the pivot angle, it needs quite a large gap, the diameter of the circle in the middle where it hinges.

Re: Pinchy Palace Journal

After lots of scraping, it is finally done! It is now time to resume ziptying egg crate with great difficulty as it's already in the tank. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191129/dcaff8b677866bf3eee86cb65ca182a6.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191129/9fb9392ed907699a0d7bb5689fa9b06d.jpg Sen...

Re: Pinchy Palace Journal

Always.. Scrape away from you when working with silicone. I became complacent and ended up with a nice cut. I didn't have an issue before. This new silicone...

Re: Pinchy Palace Journal

My most lovable kitty decided to use eco fiber as cat litter. How expensive. I didn't even think to cover it when I introduced them to the crab room. Image

Re: Need help designing above ground pools

I use side cutters to cut egg crate, then file the edges until it becomes smooth. Lots of filing haha.
