Just ordered the Aqua/Orange Fade Shutter Wide Angle.
The dreaded DIY.
I always remember one time when the pubs shut at 2 on a sunday. A quick i’ll just fix that to the wall diy job. it was 11.45 and i drilled through a cable hidden in the wall ahhhhhhhhhhh.
Care to share details?
Never heard of him, but he sounds like a really great guy. Anyone named Smiley is bound to be pretty cool
In all seriousness though, George Smiley was my grandpa’s name.
Forgot to mention… Today
Reattaching the swanneck section of rainwater downpipe to the gutter. By dangling out of the upper story window with a stick balancing on the cill while hanging on to the wall with my other hand.
Shopping usual cat food, toilet paper etc etc.
Drinking rum with dandilion & burdock
George Smiley = British spy, the books are set in the 1960 / 70’s.
As for the diy, I removed a 1930’s metal window frame that sat within another wooden frame and now I’m having to clean up and shape the wooden frame to accept a new woodwork.
Those look great man! Especially digging the teal/black, orange/black and the blue/white!
Have you tested them out yet?
Not yet, although I’ve got a formula that works great for me! The blue white, and orange black are fades! I’ll post a picture in a minute
Edit: thanks btw!
Those look great!I have some nylon thread on the way to do some strings myself haha
It’s a pretty addicting facet of our hobby! What nylon do you use?
I’ve never tried nylon!I purchased some 100D/2(standard thickness) wooly nylon thread to try some. I’m kind of interested on how people debscribe it, but nylon string are usually expensive, so I wanna see if I can get some good result doing them myself haha.
I just tried nylon for the first time a couple of weeks ago. It’s a poly/nylon blend that One Drop makes and damn I love the stuff!
I’m really interested in trying a pure nylon blend out at some point soon’ish.
I am, too. I use kitty fat, but I want to try something more slick and better for whips. Already got lots of poly threads so I’ll be trying some blend and pure nylon when it arrives in a few weeks haha.
That looks so clean. Congrats!!!
Oh wow! Those are honestly some of the coolest looking strings I’ve seen! I’ve never seen fades like that on a string before!
What brand wooly is it? Just curious, I’ve tried gutterman, maxilock, and YLI. I personally have had a hard time with the YLI, but have loved the other 2. I just like how soft they feel honestly! Sooo smooth and silky! Plus my wrist appreciates the little bit of bounce they give the string.
Thank y’all! The fades are definitely awesome, but kind of a pita to make probably why we don’t see many of them.
Wooly is a kind of nylon thread, not a brand. I ordered it from AliExpress since I can’t find them on local shops haha.
When I did poly I used an unknown brand and Gutterman. I got good results, but it was so much time compsuming and I got something similar to kitty, so it is not profitable at all. Since nylon strings are expensive, I’ll try to make them so I can save some bucks haha.
