Grommet vs C-Clamp mounting

I have a 72" sit to stand desk, it has grommet holes, I'm wondering if I should mount my arm with the C-clamp mount or grommet mount. I'm sure it's a preference things but just wanted to know what some people's thoughts were.

Forgot to include the fact that it'll be a 49" AOC.

Triple monitor mount set up. Well known brands or well rated Amazon brands?

Triple Monitor Arm Mount (Gas), Amazon brands and more reputable brands.

TL;DR: expensive dell monitor mounts vs Amazon triple monitor brand. Is the difference that important?

Hey everyone, I’m looking to get a triple monitor mount set up. I’ve been looking on Dells website for their mounts and had purchased this a while back. This is just a dual monitor mount but I had planned on buying their single mount at a later date. They’re very expensive, and the single monitor one is about 120. Total is like 380 to mount 3 monitors.

https://www.dell.com/en-us/work/shop/dell-dual-monitor-arm-mda20/apd/482-bbdh/monitors-monitor-accessories?gacd=9646510-1024-5761040-266380031-0&dgc=st&ds_rl=1282786&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIhcSa7d2T7AIV3YVaBR0Amg4-EAQYASABEgI3E_D_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

Then I saw this one on Amazon when looking at other people’s 3 monitor set ups and it has decent ratings and reviews and lots of customer pictures. Total here is like 120 to mount 3 monitors and there’s currently a 20 dollar off coupon.

I’m considering returning the dell mount and purchasing this one. Thoughts and opinions?

Fully Jarvis tops vs custom tops

Hi all,

I have spent the last few days looking at standing desks and office chairs for my new flat.

Right now I am satisfied with the quality of the Fully Jarvis desk although if anyone can compare this desk with other UK-available options, such as the Series 2, or this particular desk (https://www.box15.co.uk/products/592/800x1400mm-x20-height-adjustable-sit-stand-desk-frame?catid=48) that would be very helpful.

The final desk-related decision I am making is between a Fully 1600x800 Bamboo top or a custom made one. I discovered this UK-based site that offers custom-made, pre-drilled wood desk tops for frames such as the Fully. For the same price and size, it's roughly Β£100 more for a custom made Oak or Pine desk. It will take some time to deliver though so I will attach my old Ikea desktop for about 6 weeks until it arrives.

I would like to ask what anyone with more experience on this matter would suggest. On the surface it seems worth it to spend a bit more for a better quality material, although I would appreciate any insights on the quality of the Fully desk.

Also, if anyone can give quick reviews of the various customisability options on the Fully - such as the clamp-mounted surge protector vs grommets, mouse mats, casters (I am interested in these particularly), mats, etc. that would be great.

I am planning on taking advantage of the discount on the Knoll Regeneration chair, although I will be posting in Office Chairs about that, if anyone has also done the same thing I would be interested in hearing their thoughts.

Thanks!

Starting knots

Does anyone know the playability and tension maintenance feedback on using a starting knot vs holding the cross start with a starting clamp and going back to the starting cross and tying off? I use Parnells, BTW.

Stringing an older Duel G as a two piece (the green/black one with shared holes) got me thinking about that. By the way, the method is free-stringing the first 3 crosses and tying at the third cross grommet before pulling any tension. I wondered if it would have been easier to just use a starting clamp instead of the starting knot.

help me decide: Fully Jarvis vs Uplift V2/V2 Commercial (or something else?)

I'm trying to decide between the Fully Jarvis and Uplift V2/V2 Commercial and could use some help. I looked mostly at these due to Wirecutter's recommendations, but am open to other suggestions if they fall reasonably close to the prices I noted below. Do any other companies offer similar curved top options like those offered by Fully and Uplift?

I'm looking at the 60x30 inch desks with the bamboo curved top from both companies**.**

Have people found that 60 inches is a good size for dual monitors (mostly do video and photo editing), while still allowing room for other items on the desk? Right now, I plan to use a laptop and 27" monitor side by side, but eventually want to get dual monitors. My place is pretty small, so I think 60" might already be pushing it, but I also want something that will last and have a lot of use for years to come.

Do people like the curve top? I like the idea of the ergonomic curve allowing you to rest your arms on the desk when not typing. Does it work well in practice?

My total cost with shipping and tax on the Uplift V2 would be $833 (or another $60 for V2 Commercial) vs. $767 for Fully (Extended model - not positive if I need this, but I'm 5'10" for reference).

I know people say not to decide based on accessories, though it seems like you do get more value with Uplift. The price I quoted includes the Bamboo Motion-X board (anyone like that?), wire management kit, clamp-on surge protector, bamboo desk organizer, writing pad, With the Fully, I'm only getting a powered grommet (I do like that Fully's includes USB ports on the grommet unlike Uplift). By the time I buy additional items like a standing mat/board, I'll end up paying about the same or more for the Fully.

Another factor is shipping time. If I go for the V2, it's showing a ship date of June 30, though Uplift says that could be delayed another week. The V2-Commercial shows June 9. Fully Jarvis shows "early June". But if V2 is the best choice, then I guess it's not a huge deal to have to wait an extra few weeks.

Fully also offers free 30 day returns, whereas you have to pay for return shipping with Uplift. Though, I doubt I'd need to return it.

How does warranty service compare between the two companies? Do they make you pay shipping if you have to ship something back under warranty?

Last question, if I go with Uplift: Do people recommend the V2 or the V2-Commercial? The V2-Commercial is $60 more, so not a huge difference, pl

[OC][Art] In response to my Table that people seem to like

Hi all!

I'm Jupiter-Tank, the DM who created this table: https://www.reddit.com/r/DnD/comments/g37cz6/ocart_i_finished_this_just_before_the_lockdown/

Here’s another shot of it in action:

https://imgur.com/a/cbbCojb

After a lot of positive feedback and requests I wanted to post a basic rundown of what I needed, what it cost, what I did, what I'd have done differently, and what I'll do now. I hope you all find this informative. If you have issues or questions, feel free to comment or chat! I operate on PST but I'll do my best to answer any and all questions. If you're in the OC, maybe we can have a run when COVID-19 is over?

Disclaimer: I didn't take many pictures during the assembly, nor did I take a video, despite thinking of it beforehand. Why? I was embarrassed by possible mistakes and my shoddy garage. After the fact I really regret it. I hope to make another sometime in the future, documenting the whole process (including mistakes), and I hope others who attempt this also take videos, regardless of circumstance.

What I needed and what it cost

First of all, let me add the basic drawing of how I envisioned my table to be built:

https://imgur.com/a/lxiTIT5

This is where I started. I include a list of measurements for everything, how much of that wood I need, and even a numbered process for how the table components are to be assembled in order. If you haven't already noticed, the drawings here clearly call for miter joints, while the real thing uses butt-end joints (diagonal corner on the tabletop in the drawing, butted-up wood in the finished product). You may also notice how the tabletop in the drawing is actually incredibly thick, a whopping 1.5-3" depending on where you measure. I wanted a hulking behemoth, a really thicc boi, something that looked like $3000 and could seat a family of 4.

Not easy wood to come by. I experimented with local lumber yards but kept coming up short. Then I found it. Milled to proper thickness, good length, little to no variation (lumber yards have random stock that isn't always cut clean, you roll the dice each time). I took some time off work, rented a u-haul, came back, and... no wood. What? Where did it go? WHAT HAPPENED?

Turned out the wood was sold. I was out the uhaul (not relevant, but I'm still mad) and went home empty handed. Then I just went to Home Depot and bought

Wicked Bunny Proximity HDSS Headset. The headset to protect your hearing?

*Usual Disclaimer*

This headset was sent to me for a review by Wicked Bunny directly. They did not pay or ask me to say anything to persuade anyone to purchase this product, just to give my opinions and suggestions. This product is a DEMO unit and may be subject to changes before the final product is released. Just for the record I do want everyone reading to know that I am not some audio guru, just a person who really loves good audio. I am not a professionally trained listener so I will try toΒ use as littleΒ "Audiophile" terms as I can since many folks tend to leave more confused after reviews.

Before we get into the review I wanted to list the headphones that I compared these to, as well as the Amps and DACs that were used with this product. (If you couldn't give two and half bowel movements about this section feel free to skip right to the "packaging" section, or if you have a HORRIBLY short attention span scroll down to to the final thoughts section: "Ending Conclusion".Β )

Headphones that I own:Β Vokyl Erupt headphones: they're wired to be balanced (mainly used for gaming), Verum 1 (main music listening headphones), Philips SHP 9500 w/ the V-Moda Boom Pro Mic attachment (I only use these primarily when I need a microphone to talk), Monoprice M560, and Koss KSC75

Amps Used in Testing:Β Gigabyte Aorus z390 Ultra on-board amp, E-600 with Muses02 op-amp, Monoprice Monolith THX 887 and the Syba Sonic DAC/Amp combo unit, Nintendo Switch on-board Amp

Dacs Used in Testing:Β Gigabyte Aorus z390 Ultra on-board DAC, SMSL SU-8 external DAC, Syba Sonic DAC/Amp combo unit, Nintendo Switch on-board DACSystems This Headset Was Used On:Β Windows 10 PC, Nintendo Switch

*Note*

-If none of those things that I just listed makes sense to you don't worry. I was lost at first when entering the audio game too, the list above and the soon-to-follow spec sheet below is just to give people who DO know what all that means a reference point to what audio gear was used, my experience with headphone audio, and to scratch the itch for those that live for specs.

-Some of the headphones are NOT a fare comparison with this headphone as they are in a completely different price bracket, so at the end of the main review I will do a comparison between the Philips SHP9500 w/ the V-Moda Boom Pro mic attachment since they are the closest in price.

Review of Jarvis Standing Desk

Recently I purchased a Jarvis standing desk from Fully. I've asked a few questions here and wanted to give a review of the desk and a list of accessories I got along with it.

Summary:

I am very happy with the purchase of the desk and all of the interactions I've had with Fully. The things I don't like about the desk are not deal breakers and are really more quibbles. I have no problem recommending this desk after a few weeks of usage.

== Jarvis Desk

A standing desk is something that's been on my radar for a few years and I've had on my wish list for about a year. At my dayjob, we have standing desks at every station so using them has become routine for me and have been exposed to different brands. I was able to determine which ones and features I like and those that I didn't want. For instance; I found the Ikea model we have is fine for office use, but I didn't want the laminate top for home (due to the wear I've noticed on them) and the motor is a little noisy for my space.

I spent quite some time doing research while saving up for what I wanted. The median price point for the motorized desks seemed to be about $600 and accessories would run another $200 for what I wanted. For some time the leaders in my search seemed to be Autonomous and StandDesk, leaning towards the former due to the price point. Then I started reading about Fully.

As the research continued I found that there was a lot of positive feedback about Fully's products and customer service. I liked what I read about their company in reviews and their own PR materials. I really liked the idea of the bamboo top they offered, though I wasn't sure about the curve design.

As I was dragging out the decision I saw a Twitter post about their Baltimore warehouse staff. This intrigued me since I work in Baltimore. I Tweeted with them a little bit and discovered that they have a showroom which is available by appointment, which is not too far from my office. A couple of emails and a couple days later I'm there trying out a variety their desks!

Placing the order on the site was as easy as you would want it to be. What I didn't expect was the quickness of the shipment. I ordered on a Monday evening and Fedex was ringing my doorbell on Wednesday! (Shoutout to Fully's Baltimore warehouse crew!) Granted I know we're in the same general area, but it was impressive nonetheless. That evening I spent a little over an hour putting it together. The time included bringing it up to the office, unpacking, and

Just some prints (and a hearty recommendation for the mendel90)

Hey people, so I've had my mendel90 for a while now, extremely happy with it. I basically have one complaint, and that is that I think the y-idler isn't that reliable a design as the washer kinda crushes into the dibond which leaves it "stuck", possibly with insufficient tension and it's hard to correct after that, plus it's hard to get taught and straight to begin with. Also the wire holes could do with grommets as they are pretty sharp, can shave off wire insulation but thats not such a big deal.

Anyway, without further a do, here is a collection of some of my prints over the last few months, all made on the mendel90 dibond kit from nophead (who is awesome, as is his wife) with 0 changes from out of box except the z-min-pos in firmware (0.1mm change), eyeball leveling, blue tape on bed and porting the skeinforge settings to slicer for the dino skull and zombie hunter bust. All prints are in DiamondAge 3mm PLA, except the green stuff, which was the included Fabberdashery PLA.

> First up: The Dino skull. 0.15mm layers, meshmixer supports. ~10cmm long.

Might as well get the ugly one out of the way first. It actually looks much worse in person than in the photo too. Moral of the story is don't leave your PLA sitting around for ages in the open and keep your belts tight. The z banding was pretty obscene, and it had been affecting all the ivory PLA prints I did for a while. As you can see from this pic the extrusion width seemed to be all over the place because of moisture. This one is what finally tempted me to re-check the y-belt and discover that my previous efforts had been undone by the washer/bolt popping into their old, much too lose groove. I managed to re-seat it, but who knows if it will hold this time. This part either needs a much larger washer to spread the load or a redesign. In particular I'm considering printing this or this alternative tensioner. Running two slots either side of the tensioner instead of one central one at the back (where it pivots from tension) would also be more robust I imagine, and easier to adjust for angle.

> Once I re-tensioned the y-belt: The Zombie Hunter Bust. 0.075mm layers, slic3r 1.0.0 auto supports. ~7.5cm tall (half scale).

This was my first foray below 100 micron (my 3rd ever prin
