Depends. If it's an obvious user error, duh. But if the problem lies with flawed tempering or such, it's the maker. I've agreed to refund or fix any structural problems that occur within six months of delivery, but so far never had to do that.

I've only done practice weapons for clients so far, so I can make some parts slightly more idiot proof. Not quite comfortable enough with my skill level to sell sharp swords to people yet.

Most of the time I've only made hilts anyway, separately bought blades are relatively cheap and there's always someone who wants to be different.

What if a blade were to fail during normal use, and it's clearly your fault. Would you be liable for whatever personal damage occurs? (like the blade goes *SPROING* and takes out someone's eye)

Tricky question. Most HEMA clubs teach the importance of the salute before doing anything during a session. It's more than just a greeting though; it's an aknowledgement that we're dealing with things that hurt and kill people, and a pre-emptive apology for any actual damage that might be caused unintentionally. If that's followed to the letter, that would release me from responsibility. Were that to happen for real, I would do what's in my ability to help the victim.

Of course, living in a country with free healthcare helps a lot with that conviction, but it's more a matter of professional pride.

Any of you fucks want a knife, specifically this knife that I'm currently working on? If so post your interest and an email address I can contact you with.

I'll the drawing open for a week or two depending on the interest and then use this http://www.miniwebtool.com/random-picker/ to decide the winner. The knife should be completely finished by tomorrow or the day after or whenever I feel like it really, but I'll have additional pictures up before the end of the contest.

Pic related. Not the one I'm taking home at the end of the week but same model 206RB-5

Boss is selling me a brand new sewing machine w/table & motor for $300. Thing is only 2 years old but never got used much due to her not liking the PWM motor (as opposed to a clutch type motor on her old machines). I can sew on it just fine so I'm getting it and getting it cheap.

First thing will be me making myself curtains and a messenger bag. After that I want to start making one off waxed canvas custom bags.

Kinda want to know what people here might be interested in. I'm assuming rifle bags are a given but I wouldn't mind some other ideas. Keep in mind the 206RB-5 is a medium duty machine. It doesn't handle light clothing fabrics well and it can't do leather all the time (a Pfaff 545 or a Singer 7-31 would be more suited for that). It does the middle of the road canvas and semi-thick webbing.

If you're looking for a relatively easy pattern, I've made an Alaskan packboard linked below and I actually really like it. Big limitation is the straps, which you'd want to make a slip-over padding for the shoulders and long enough to wrap on the waist. There's a million variations with different pockets and such, so maybe there's something there. I've also seen versions with pop-riveted aluminum frames, which at that point you're starting to transition into ALICE territory.

oddly enough that was on my list of "make for myself"

Honestly I'd be making my own patterns. Pattern making is about 25% of my job nowadays (pic related, I do the pattern work, cutting, and vinyl welding for these) and I learned a lot on doing custom work while Active Duty.

I want to know what people around here would want. Essentially I'm thinking of starting a spare-time etsy/hobby tier business that makes enough to fund itself.

Why? To have something that I enjoy to do.

Maybe magpouches for some less common things, like Vepr 54r magazines and such. Or a full chest rig (bonus for some retro styling). I made a chest rig for my Vepr 54r, but I am going to have to re-do it since I got new 10 rounder CSSpecs mags.

reading the python the hard way now. Once I get through it the question becomes where to next? Where can I go to get in some programming that isn't a job with demands that exceed my new abilities.

>> No. 109667 ID: b70387
I understand there's some subset of the programming world where you basically agree to complete a given set of tasks by a given date for a given amount of money and that's it. Some kind of contract programming. It would be nice to code at home and to be sure that my being legally blind doesn't really come into the equation, besides figuring out how much time I need to budget for the given task, for myself. How does this kind of thing work? How can one get into this kind of work?

I feel like this was the background for this thread >>107629, and I distinctly remember someone on here desperately needing a new graphics card because they were in the middle of a project like this and if they didn't get it done on time, they wouldn't be paid. So, please, tell me more.
>> No. 109668 ID: b75cd2
I tried getting into programming a couple times, but it never really made any sense to me. I don't have interests or desires that require programming knowledge, and most of the tools I would want already exist and are free to use. On top of that, the barrier to entry is tall, and past basic cs classes, the layers of abstraction get really intense. Arduino projects are usually interesting, but those are more elctro-mechanical systems rather than strict software challenges.

Eve Online is a good playground for test programs. There are a lot of APIs available to pull data from, and a lot of opportunities for cost trackers and calculators. I imagine other MMOs are similar. But at the end of the day, what end goal are you working for besides "I want to code better". If you want a career, I suggest you take classes because that is the best way to learn about things like algorithms, machine learning, systems and database management, which are the in demand fields of work.

Correct. Currently the only way to ghetto-rig FA without receiver modifications is with an increasingly-rare Colt SP1-spec BCG and a Lightning Link.

Honestly, just buy a 3MR drop in trigger and use that. No threat of buttrape prison and it works almost as well as the real thing.

Hi Operators,

I need to ask about a certain topic that used to be posted or pinned in the former WARFARE board of the opchan. I'm talking about the discussion (definitely some 120+ posts along with lot of pictorial reference materials) regarding combating enemy armour.

Is there any way to retrieve this thread? Via some chanarchive perhaps? Do admins have these threads archived somewhere?

Maybe some operator has downloaded this thread just as I did back then?

It would mean a lot if anyone could help me retrieve this thread, I need it to my "operator's library" and some training in near future. A lot of very useful info was compiled there but I lost my hdd with all of that... Hence the question.

Any chance operators? I sure hope so.

I have to do the same thing, and add way too many commas. The only useful thing I partially learned in english class was to go through and start removing as much as I could from what I write.
If I have more than one comma then I fucked up somewhere.

I just feel like posting this because its true and I forgot to comment on it earlier. Now that I run my own shop and get to decide all my inventory, the first thing I did 2 years ago was liquidate any cheap, crappy guns the shop had left in stock to other dealers, and never reorder them. No Cobras, no Hi Points, no Comanches, none of the stereotypical Saturday night specials or gangbanger guns.

I have had exactly zero crime guns traced to my shop since I did that. In two years. At the old place where the boss insisted on selling that stuff, we had over a dozen a year on average. Feels fantastic.

  Star Wars: Troops [HQ] https://youtu.be/-EDiQXhYIKY
Troops is a mockumentary film by Kevin Rubio, which made its debut on the Internet in 1997. The film is a parody of COPS, set in the Star Wars universe. In the film, Imperial stormtroopers from the infamous Black Sheep Squadron patrolling the Dune Sea on the planet Tatooine run into some very familiar characters while being filmed for the hit Imperial TV show Troops.

The film jump-started the modern fan film movement, as it was one of the first short films to bring fan films into the digital age, taking advantage of internet distribution and affordable production and special effects equipment, as well as fans with movie-quality costumes. Rubio shot the film on location on the El Mirage Dry Lake.

Rubio finished the film while working at the Fox Kids Network, and was able to use well-known voice talent in his cast, including Jess Harnell, Cam Clarke, and announcer Bill Farmer.

Pat Buchanan

‘The Ideas Made It, But I Didn’t’
Pat Buchanan won after all. But now he thinks it might be too late for the nation he was trying to save.
http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/04/22/pat-buchanan-trump-president-history-profile-215042

>A quarter-century before Trump descended into the atrium of his Manhattan skyscraper to launch his unlikely bid for the White House, Buchanan, until then a columnist, political operative and TV commentator, stepped onto a stage in Concord, New Hampshire, to declare his own candidacy 10 weeks ahead of the state’s presidential primary. Associating the “globalist” President George H. W. Bush with “bureaucrats in Brussels” pursuing a “European superstate” that trampled on national identity, Buchanan warned his rowdy audience, “We must not trade in our sovereignty for a cushioned seat at the head table of anybody’s new world order!” His radically different prescription, which would underpin three consecutive runs for the presidency: a “new nationalism” that would focus on “forgotten Americans” left behind by bad trade deals, open-border immigration policies and foreign adventurism. His voice booming, Buchanan demanded: “Should the United States be required to carry indefinitely the full burden of defending rich and prosperous allies who take America’s generosity for granted as they invade our markets?”

>...

>By 1992, the evolution was complete—“I was a full-fledged economic nationalist,” Buchanan says—and his crusade against the embodiment of globalism, President George H. W. Bush, became a surprise 10-week proxy war for the future of the Republican Party. Buchanan’s allies held out hope he could pull a historic upset in New Hampshire that would throw the entire nominating process into turmoil. But they knew it was terribly unlikely, and were thrilled when Buchanan captured 37 percent of the vote, even though it was still a double-digit defeat. He wound up winning nearly 3 million votes nationwide against Bush, and though he carried no states, was invited to speak at the party convention. When he delivered his fire-breathing “culture war” speech, urging Republicans to “take back” the country from the alien forces of militant secularism and liberal multiculturalism, Democrats said it was proof of a GOP tacking hard and fast to the right. That was the whole idea: Buchanan, unlike Trump 25 years later, was a committed social conservative who saw crusades against gay rights and abortion as part of the campaign to restore his ideal America. But they also limited his appeal, and some in the party establishment hold a grudge to this day, convinced Buchanan scared of
