driver, about 20 years old, was operating the vehicle without a license
I’m looking at winter commuting options that don’t involve driving. Thanks!
Size looks out of stock on Vans and Journeys :( hopefully they restock
Hi all(my handtool google friends)
I just won a no 50 on ebay(yay me right!) with no cutters(but with the depth stop and fence!). My question is do the 45 & 50 cutters work in the 50 or do I need to search for the 50 specifically? I have found some of each, but seems the 45 & 50 are more common(but this could be because of them being more available and used more) and seem a bit cheaper. TIA!
trying to contain my excitement, but I can't!
Here is the one I have coming yay happy curls
TL;DR: Has anyone here done proper wheel-sliding plow stops (not just bubble stops) on outdoor wheels?
I've spent almost two decades on ice skates, and have been on quads since April. I see a lot of discussion (mostly from derby skaters) about plow stops and often see them recommended as a beginner technique; this is rather at odds with my experience, and I'm hoping to clear up some confusion that I and others have had.
It's my opinion that on soft outdoor wheels (anything lower than 85A, and probably anything <90A), proper plow stops (wheels sliding, not just rolling) are impossible. I would like to think I have pretty strong legs and at this point, I'm almost as comfortable on quads as I was on ice, but my wheels (85A) have so much grip that a two-footed plow as wide as I'm physically capable of doing can't get the wheels to slip at all.
Personally, I'm fine with the answer that plows just don't work with soft wheels. However, I have a silly bet with another member of the disco... keep reading on reddit ➡
Just ordered a pair of the Mr. Plow MTE DX 2.0s from europe, ill update this after i get them. Im very skeptical. I paid 150 vs the 200 markup they are at now. Am i crazy?
I ordered several pairs from the Simpsons collab directly from Vans just after midnight on release day and everything shipped pretty quickly on Friday afternoon with the exception of the Mr. Plows. I still haven’t received a shipping notice for them and am worried they oversold them. Has anyone else received their shipping notice specifically for the Mr. Plows?
UPDATE: I finally got the shipping notice this morning (Sunday)! Thank you to everyone for providing your experiences as well! 😊
So this just happened this morning on a highway in Taiwan: Video footage here
Basically the driver had plenty of time to avoid a truck which had broken down (and rolled onto its side) in the inner lane of the highway, but ended up (somewhat hilariously) ramming into it head-on anyway. Clearly the driver wasn't paying attention, and/or potentially using something that bypassed the autopilot steering wheel pressure reminder.
My understanding on the matter is that due to current limitations in software/hardware(?), AP does not factor in stationary objects in its calculations. This seems to be a common trait in the fatal accidents of Walter Huang (2018) and also Joshua Brown (2016), where AP was engaged and the car plowed into stationary objects anyway.
Just wondering if there's any good literature or resources on this to read up on? Why exactly AP calculates the way it currently does, and what the strategy moving forward is going to... keep reading on reddit ➡
Did they just not make many or what? I don’t see people talking about them much
That title may sound obvious to some of you but if, like me, you had thousands of hours in FS17. You may have just gone in assuming it would be the same.
You would then, like me, spend over one thousand hours in fs19 before realizing that you didn't have to plow after every third harvest, only lime.
I found this out when I turned off the "Lime overlay" to see the bits of my field that the plow missed while it was only halfway done of a large field. But there were no bits that it missed.... because I didn't have to plow.
But, for anyone else who didn't know... we can be ashamed together.
I will now hang my head in shame, double down and continue plowing every third harvest. Not because I have to, but because I've never known any other way. I would feel lost without my "Plow day" every Wednesday and Sunday.
That is all - I hope I give someone a good laugh today, as I certainly gave my fiancee one.
I happened into eBay last week, looking to get a plow plane. I had looked on Lee Valley's site but nothing was shipping until October. The eBay deal (in transit to my house at this point) seemed too good to be true and I might have rushed through the process so I didn't miss out. Well... I'm right-handed. I just realized this plane with a LOT of blades is all left-handed.
Has anyone ever found themselves in a situation where they have a left-handed plane? Did you just have to find a new buyer? Did you tough it out left-handed? Can you do that if you have a "right-handed bench"? I can't really use any of this stuff if I just get a new right-hand plane... right?
Maybe this is the chance for me to improve my brain mappings by becoming more ambidextrous.
Edit: I'll call this a win and detail how good a deal it is. (c:
I see alot of people putting 200HP+ plow on 50HP structural parts why do people do that? Same goes with high HP weapon like fatman mounted on a 90HP part. I don't understand why someone would do that.
the episode was with brad and i think staci or carlito too. they would pretend to put customers on hold knowing they could still hear them talk to each other. it was hilarious.
I'm looking to turn my spare Dinghy into a Turbo Dinghy of sorts by adding some 72mm Plow Kings to it. I know it'll definitely need risers, but I'm not sure what size. Would angled risers be the move here? Naturally, I don't want it to be too tall, but since I'm a heavier rider (200lbs), wheel bite is definitely going to be a concern with the bigger wheels. I couldn't find the riser info on the Turbo Dinghy page, and since Landyachtz support is a little overwhelmed these days, I figured I'd ask the longboarding community first. Thanks in advance!
They sold out while I was checking out, will any stores other than Vans and Journey have them in stock?
Will Vans restock them?
Discount 4 student:
My grandparents used to tell me how they worked the land when they were teens, before mechanisation came in. It sounded pretty rough. I always wondered if the primitive technology they used was any different from the one used in ancient times. I always was left with the impression that agricultural tech did not change that much through the millenia.
Edit: I am actually not sure if the plows they used were made of wood or metal. In any event, it seems that ancient civilizations were perfectly capable to use both materials.
Edit: I also know that they had a very robust understanding of crop rotation but I am not entirely sure how it worked (e.g. what crops were rotated and when).
Hey all! I am in the market for a rebate/shoulder and maybe a plow plane(and of course a router but that is a topic for another day). My question is, should I just try and get a complete no 50 or similar since it can cut many different things that I am looking for? I was going to build a basic grooving plane first and then maybe try a shoulder plane.
But from what I saw on Ebay I could get a no 50 at a decent price. Or should I hold off for a different one? Also, I was looking at getting the taytools 3 in 1 for a metal shoulder plane since it is cheap enough and I have heard everyone pretty well likes anything they have gotten from Taytools. TIA for any help!
Also, I have tried antique stores, flea markets and try and go to as many estate sales as possible but have come up relatively empty where I live besides standard bench planes. Seems not too many people were into the specialty planes I am looking for around here!
