10 Adhesive Magnetic Sheets - 8.5" x 11" - 20 mil Magnet - Peel & Stick


u/odsquad64 · 89 pointsr/OSHA

I've got a roll of this just for sticking power strips to desks and shit without having to do any planning.

u/wumbothot · 44 pointsr/aves

honestly its super easy...

u need

  1. Use a utility knife and a straight edge to score and cut the acrylic sheets. U don’t need to cut all the way through just enough to snap it over the edge of a table. Should be left with six 12” squares of clear acrylic.

  2. Dry build the box (i just used masking tape to hold it together) and just cut the corner guard to the needed length for each side.

  3. Apply the mirror film to acrylic

  4. Dry build the corner guard into a box (ur trying to achieve a frame) and place the mirrored acrylic into place, EXCEPT the top piece. That u just set on top of the frame.

  5. Lay in the LED strips (just tape them in place for now). Theres a way to do it where u only need to over lap 3 times, its impossible to cover every edge without overlapping.

  6. Ur practically done! Just go back and use the mounting tape to set everything in place. For the top piece, use velcro on the corners and just stick it in place. This will save u a lot of frustration and time (trust me).

    Thats pretty much it. I kinda just started making it and winged it the whole way. Longest and hardest part is cutting the acrylic but its not that bad. Whole thing took me abt 2 trips to home depot and 3 hours over 2 two days (mirror film take 12 hrs to set). All and all, it was really easy. It helps to have someone help build, but theres nothing u really can’t do by urself. Hope u guys enjoy! reply w questions abt stuff n ill try to answer

    ill edit this post later to include the amazon links to the LED strips and include pictures

    Edit: Added links

No.... They both have issues recognizing with loud music or sounds playing. You get the same issues with the dot if your speaker is placed near it, or it's built-in speaker is turned up too high.

edit: Here's amazon's placement guide for alexa devices:
> Place your Alexa device in an ideal location

> Make sure your Alexa device is at least eight inches away from walls or other objects that may cause interference (such as microwave ovens or baby monitors).

> If your Alexa device is on the floor, move it to a higher location.

Echo requires more power to power the built-in speaker. They could have opted for USB c but that wasn't a standard when it came out. Google home also uses a proprietary ac adapter, and it came out this year. They also both don't have a 3.5mm because they were designed to be used with the built in speaker that actually sounds good.

Really neither is better than the other, they're designed for different purposes. One is for voice controlled, loud, high-fidelity music playing speaker in one package and another for a low cost have an echo in every room to control your house. (Gen 1 echo dot was a limited manufacturing run, so they limited it to existing echo users to buy. It's a higher quality build too. uses american TI SoC, has stereo speakers (ones from smartphones), has the volume ring from big sister echo, so it was more expensive as well.) (Gen2 is plastic, has buttons for volume control, has a really cheap mono speaker (one you find in a child's toy), uses chinese Mediatek SoC - this is why the price is so low.)

You might want to clean the microphones of the echo (not with compressed air, use something like blutack to remove the dust. be careful and don't use too much pressure. you don't want to get blutack stuck in the hole.), and also unplug and let it sit for a few minutes if you need to shout it at it in a quiet room. That's not normal.

u/MadDog_Tannen · 39 pointsr/news

Maybe these vicious, thoughtless vandals used that extremely hazardous, environmetally-toxic substance known as FUN TAK. When this material is used to adhere objects to other objects, it's been known to require TWO FINGERS to separate those objects.

3M Command strips work great, they have a variety of configurations to hang just about anything. They are, however, not inexpensive.

We use poster putty to hang lighter paper things (like posters)

u/nickhollidayco · 18 pointsr/StonerEngineering

Not OP but I’m assuming It’s the putty stuff you stick posters up with - “blue/blu tack” is the branded Aussie nomenclature (think Kleenex for facial tissue).

u/ThorwAwaySlut · 18 pointsr/instant_regret

Looks like a binder clip.

u/MaceBlackthorn · 16 pointsr/Perfectfit

Get some of those reusable tac strips. They’re used for hanging posters and aren’t supposed to leave a residue.

u/jorjordandan · 13 pointsr/oculus

If you get the grey outdoor mounting strips, it will take out your drywall before it falls off (that may be a problem to take down but it's easy to install). It's crazy strong after it cures. It's the consumer version of the VHB tape compared here with rivets. We use it in our small batch manufacturing business....

EDIT: Packaging looks like this

I ordered a custom size piece of tempered glass from It is 12 7/8" by 9 1/2" and 1/8" thick and the light gray tint variant. I used the .STL files graciously provided by /u/asone_ and uploaded them to who 3D printed them and shipped them to me. I used this mounting tape to hold the two together. The tape was really thick and a pain to work with and cut to size. You may see some air bubbles in the last few pictures. Hopefully I can work them all out somehow.

The PSU cables are from and are the mind bender blue color. I bought the Corsair Shorty's and custom extensions. The lengths I got were 300mm for the 24 pin, 400mm for the CPU, and 300mm for PCI-E. All of them could be a bit shorter, but I am glad they all reach.

Bought this filter for the bottom intake fans.

I plan on stress testing and overclocking/de-lidding the 7700k in the near future.

Happy to answer any questions!

3M Scotch 4011 Exterior Mounting Tape, 1 in x 60 in

u/Sneeko · 10 pointsr/DIY

Blu-Tack is what you need. This is pretty much exactly what it's designed for.

u/WhoIsPurpleGoo · 10 pointsr/Coffee

i have these magnetic sheets from an earlier project. one side has an adhesive backing.

i cut the bags/graphics a bit bigger than i want the final magnet, stick it to the magnet, and trim with an x-acto. if the bag or sticker is paper (not water resistant), i'll add a layer of clear laminate to protect it a bit.

u/charliex2 · 9 pointsr/Defcon

>pop off the the quartz front

if you want to put the quartz back, replace the adhesive with some double sided foam tape and the jconnect will fit without butchering a $60 cable! :)

i didn't really finish the timing but
just remember to change or remove the lyrics print if you just swap the song that is in there otherwise it'll crash.

u/coromd · 9 pointsr/motorcycles

3M Scotch 410P "industrial strength" clear double sided tape. Haven't taken it up to highway speeds yet but it stays on fine at 40mph. Unfortunately it covers up the sun visor mechanism so I can't put the sun visor down with the hat attached.

Edit: highway speeds are quite the neck exercise

u/Crauza · 9 pointsr/AnimeFigures

here is what i used: the lights make sure its set to cool white if you are buying your selfnow the cable for the top most light is a bit short so u can always cut and solder a bit from the bottom light to the top one if you don't want the mess that i havealthough i did try to make it as neatly as possible.for securing the wires i just used clear 4inch zip ties and tucked them behind the frame inside. got this surge protector it comes with 6 outlets which are controlled by a remote so you can turn on all the cases with 1 button to secure the lights i used this double sided tape

and a bit of weather seal to keep the dust out on all 4 sides u can pick some up at home depot or fleet farm just make sure its 5/16th size

will be posting a big figure unboxing a bit later and how they all look inside the case.


Edit: forgot to link the bottom shelf so here it is pretty sturdy for the price

u/JudgeHoltman · 8 pointsr/AskEngineers

You need:

  • Common Yard Stick or other long 1" wide narrow strip of wood or metal. You need to be able to leverage a little force.

  • Double-Stick foam tape.

  • a bit of string or dental floss.

    The key for my plan is that the tape must have a peelable cover.

    Cut a 2" length of foam sticky off the roll. From that bit, cut off about 1/2" of the foam and one side of cover ONLY. Peel off the other bit.

    You should now have a 2" length of peel, 1.5" length of foam together. Stick the foam to the end of your stick, tabby side towards the end of the stick. Make sure it's good and stuck.

    Poke a hole on the 1/2" tabby on the 2" peel that's still on the strip of foam. Tie your string to the tabby through that hole.

    Shimmy your stick down to your phone. Get it very near your phone with the foam between the stick and your phone.

    Pull up on the string to peel away the tabby and stick it to your phone. Wait a minute for the glue to get going.

    Pull the stick/foam/phone assembly out and give gold.
u/M_Madison · 8 pointsr/homedefense

I bought some 3M tape off of Amazon, to mount a sign onto brick. It sticks like crazy. I don't see why this couldn't work for you. These new doorbells aren't very heavy. Just try to clean the surface with soap and water before using the tape.

Garden Sprayer+Misting Hose+Binder Clips+Canopy

Get hot? Just turn on the "AC." It's easy to go through a ton of water if you are blasting it constantly, but periodic 10 second bursts are really all you need. We never used more than one tank per day, if that. Detach the misting hose and the sprayer then doubles as a camping shower, just invest in a cheapo privacy tent.

We also use one or two tapestries for shade, just make sure to clip them with about a foot off the ground to maintain the breeze.

u/Failing_Guarantee · 8 pointsr/battlestations

A few items that will help with cable management:

  • Cable Sleeve - simple, effective, and easy to use, but also requires some forethought to not end up with a cable snake. Since the material is soft it can be cut to length and used to go around corners. Also great protection from small pets.

  • Double sided tape - Easy to use, and has a really good hold. Best use is for mounting your power strip. Down side is that it will most likely cause paint damage if it's ever removed.

  • Cable Clips - great for directing the flow of wires. Simple to use, and hold quite well. Used with the cable sleeve, you can keep the wire snake at bay (cut a hole in the sleeve and poke the clip through while mounting to the wall or desk). Similarly with the double sided tape, you may have damage if you try to remove them.

  • Velcro Straps - these have good length on them for help keeping multiple wires tightly grouped. The pack also comes with a good amount of them, in grey and black. The help keep the cable snake from bulging.

We recommend using the 3M or Scotch indoor outdoor Mounting Tape. It's gray with a red peel off backing that you can cut to fit. It can be found at Walmart or your local hardware stores. Below is a link to the tape from amazon:

u/HarmlessEZE · 7 pointsr/Multicopter

3/4" heatshrink to go over the ESC's. 0.25" I think to go over your battery cables. 5/8ths maybe to cover XT60 connectors. Wire sleeves aren't needed. I hold stuff down with double sided tape. or a wrap of electrical.

Thin solder, you'll thank me. Along with a pencil tip for your iron. You'll want ?14G? wire to solder a power lead, confirm this. I also didn't have a 5V step down to power my FC on my first build. You'll want one. Many PDB's have one integrated. That makes it easy.

Purple Loctite or your frame will vibrate itself apart, Real quick. Don't use this on Nylon, and don't get it on the motor shaft, but it is extra important to use on motor mounts though. Just be careful.

A battery buzzer that you can solder onto your PDB is nice. Adhesive velcro is good if you want to use that in addition to battery straps. Either that or hobby foam. A parallel charging board is nice to have so you don't lose an entire day charging batteries. Learn to use it.

I personally replace all my stock hardware with Aluminum Cap screws because I want to cut weight and I hate dealing with stripped hex heads. Not needed though. Zip ties are good to have. A bundle of black ones will work. I've found the colored ones are more prone to breaking. They are good to hold antenna wires.

90deg pin headers are nice. My FC didn't come with those, only straight, and stack height is a real problem with straight pins. Extra props. You'll want those. 8mm socket to remove prop nuts. 3mm allen key. USB to micro USB cable to update your FC. Some XT60 connectors.

Beyond that, I'm sure I'm over looking some things. After a couple of builds you just have extras of stuff so you overlook.

u/vodka-and-espresso · 7 pointsr/homegym

I use these lights mounted with this tape along the bottom of the walls (~4" gap between the floor and the floorboards). They're quite bright on the white setting, and underlighting is far less annoying than overheads, since it isn't shining in your eyes while you're on the bench. End result looks like this

u/mememuseum · 7 pointsr/worldnews

All you Britons out there! Start sealing your envelopes with duct tape. Or this incredibly sticky mounting tape. Would be almost impossible to open the envelope without leaving evidence of tampering.

Blu Tack

Blu-Tack Reusable Adhesive 75g

This stuff is great for figures. It doesn't stain and it is pretty good at holding stuff in. I use it all the time with Figmas and nendos, when scales won't stay on there stands, and for BJDs

u/omally114 · 7 pointsr/raspberry_pi

Dual Lock is what you want. Hook and loop sucks because you have to keep your strips straight, with this, anything goes (and I literally have my 15 lb (7 kg) speakers hanging from the wall with this stuff).

It's magical.

u/NYSenseOfHumor · 7 pointsr/Judaism

A quick Google search turned up this article from ADL written following a 2015 Supreme Court decision about desperate impact and fair housing.

ADL put together this guide on the subject, it says

>For residents whose display of symbols is purely decorative, application of such a rule [banning the display any religious or secular symbol] does not violate the law. For a Jewish person who observes this religious practice, however, the rule means that he or she cannot buy, rent or remain in the property. This detrimental effect on Jewish residents, called “disparate impact,” also violates the Fair Housing Act.

So VA law, while relevant, may or may not protect you; however federal law apparently does.

The landlord may prohibit nails in a doorframe (especially a metal one) but Scotch Outdoor Mounting Tape is a secure and non-destructive option.

u/thunderbuttons · 6 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

This is geared towards climbers but has the best section on rehabilitation that I've seen for joint/pip/pulley injuries. If you have had pain for that long you've likely developed scar tissue...this is going to make things tougher and will require GENTLE stretching and massage to gradually break it up while also strengthening the area.

Similar to climbing, most of typing involves using "finger muscles" (which are actually in your forearm) in only one direction (the one used to close your fingers, not open them). Therefore, one of the best exercises to prevent injuries is to do the reverse exercise, which is finger extension with resistance. This is in the doc, though I have to say rubber bands were never sufficient, and I highly recommend a set with variable "weights," for example this one:

I actually have one next to my desk right now. As a bonus, if you play golf or tennis this will also help with "elbow" pain, which is really due to tendon strain as a result of lack of strength in the same muscle group.

While you massage, stretch, and most importantly strengthen, do not be afraid to use the offending area. They DO grow back, but you need to get blood there. That means using it. Good luck :)

u/DiskoVilante · 6 pointsr/applehelp

Yup! I use poster hanging putty (like this one from Loctite) to put into the grooves to clean out the gunk. It's sticky but not too sticky so it picks up the dirt and crud but doesn't leave residue or itself behind.

The dark marks from scratches and dirt are much harder. Prevention works best by using the putty to clean it out regularly as needed.

Tear off the old adhesive and apply new adhesive. Use Scotch Extreme, Gorilla , or something comparable. Clean the mount and windshield with rubbing alcohol and clean rag, wait a little while to make sure it's dry, then apply the adhesive.

If you don't like your friend, get him a hard gripper.

Cheap, easy, and safe things might include expansion bands or a wrist roller.

The most practical solution for someone genuinely wanting stronger hands (and not a fidget toy for when they're bored) would be something like an adjustable Ivanko Super Gripper, though they are not cheap.

u/Rahana101 · 5 pointsr/ageofsigmar

For better painting, especially on the Stormcast side, do sub-assemblies and for gaming before you have completely finished paintjob, stick the models together with blue-tac/poster putty - get this shit anyways, great for sticking wash pots to table so you don't flip them on your table/carpet etc. Another tip - if you cannot remove remains of the blue tac from model by hand, use a bigger blue-tac ball to remove it.

Subassemblies before painting:
Liberators - Hands with shields kept separate, add with bluetac before model is finished for playing

Retributors - "backpacks" kept separate for better access to back area. Possibly weapons as well for access to the front.

Prosecutors - wings removed if possible for painting them separately (way better handling) and access to the whole model, especially the Prime model has somehow very stupid wing placement.

Lord-Celestant on Dracoth - generaly not really much possibility for subassembly at all :(

Relictor - just glue this shit together, you can access anything on the mini

Chaos - in general I don't think there is any need for sub-assemblies, as the models have generaly open poses allowing great access for painting. However, Korghos Khul might be a good idea to keep him separate from the lord (blue tac) and therefore both models separate from base (blue tac).

By the way, I generally use bluetac to attach models to bases for playing, as bases are usually the last thing I paint/customize to match the whole paintscheme.

u/redneckrockuhtree · 5 pointsr/rocketry

Ditch the PVC holders and terminal blocks. Just put a hole through the bulkhead large enough for electric match wires.

When you prep for flight, run the ematch leads through and connect them to your altimeter. Plug the hole with the sticky stuff sold for attaching posters to the wall and put your charge into the corner of a plastic bag, stuff the match head down in, fold it over and wrap it with masking tape.

FWIW, I got the poster putty idea from Kent Burnett, the guy who designed the Talon.

u/jsbulen · 5 pointsr/SWlegion

If you're insistent on deconstructing before painting, but want to play a few first, try using sticky-tack or fun-tack to keep the minis together and on their bases. Keep in mind, if painted pieces before gluing and are using a plastic glue or cement, you'll need to get the paint/primer off the contact points before gluing or it won't work properly. Even if you're using regular super glue you should still remove any paint to make a stronger bond.

u/frenchpressgirl · 5 pointsr/malelivingspace
  • Seconding /u/joefraz78's recommendation for a headboard. Or, think about upgrading your frame at some point to a something with a headboard; wood could look nice and you could eventually update your other pieces to go with it.

  • Since your bedframe is very utilitarian, and you're storing stuff under it, consider a bedskirt, or a blanket that's one size up from your bed (looks like a full, so a queen blanket).

  • If it wouldn't stick out too far for your tastes, consider rotating the bed 90 degrees so that your head is on the same wall as the dresser, leaving space between the side of the bed and the wall for your nightstand. It will look more intentional and make it easier to make the bed/change the sheets. It might even work slightly better with your TV location.

  • Lighting makes a huge difference. Overhead tends to be the harshest; everything looks better in a soft warm glow. Consider a lamp for your nightstand for reading and general ambiance -- this one has an interesting industrial look and isn't too cheesy. Think about adding a second lamp on top of your dresser, too.

  • If you have the budget for it, think about upgrading that TV stand. No judgment, we all had ones like that in our first apartments too! But a console style with some concealed storage would look more polished.

  • Art! Not sure if you can hang stuff on your walls, but Etsy and the internet are full of gorgeous inexpensive prints. Maps (nautical, star, vintage), minimal black-and-white photography, landscapes -- you name it, it's out there and you can order it. You can get fairly inexpensive frames at a craft store (Michaels, A.C. Moore, whatever you have where you are) to dress them up. If you can't put nails in the walls, Blu-Tack is good for hanging stuff without damaging the piece or the wall.

  • It may seem weird to put a rug on top of wall-to-wall, but it can make your room feel more put-together and cohesive. Plus, you can use it in your next place. Jute is usually pretty inexpensive and comes in various colors (in a small room I'd stick with a light color so as not to overwhelm the space).

  • Clear surfaces make a room feel calmer. If you have somewhere to store the stuff currently on top of your dresser (shoutout to a fellow Cornelia Funke fan), you'll probably feel better every time you walk in. Ditto for the nightstand; I'd tuck away everything you aren't using daily.

  • And finally, the obligatory plant recommendation. If you take some of the ideas above, you'll have a few different places you can put a plant. Succulents are almost impossible to kill.

Never used it, but in my experience, suction cups don't seem to work very well on wood, even polished wood. On top of that, a lot of people are saying this stuff gets dirty pretty easily. I would just use 3m Dual Lock instead. I used velcro before, but it gets worn out, and my pedals tend to move and wiggle a little bit which I don't like.

u/FuRePo · 4 pointsr/homeautomation

The 3M Permanent Mounting Tape is great stuff. I used it to reapply molding that had fallen off the outside of my car door, and it has held up for years through New Jersey winters and Arizona summers.

u/noah551 · 4 pointsr/subaru

I've been asked this several times haha. I'll do a little explaining now, but I think it's time I put together an album explaining it with pictures.

I used the following wiring harness:
OPT7 Offroad Light Bar wiring Harness Kit (4 Items), 380W - Single Connector

The wiring is in a protective plastic/rubber sleeve. I ran the sleeve up the side of the windshield. On my windshield there's a slight gap between the metal of the body and glass, like the Rubber seal is set in a little bit. I cut a thin strip of 3m exterior mounting tape and used a screwdriver or something to push it into the gap.

Scotch Exterior Mounting Tape, 1-Inch by 60-Inch

The adhesive tape has held up all winter and about a total of 8 months, so I'd say it works well.

I ran it up the passenger side because the way my light bar was the wiring came out on that side, plus you don't see it easily everytime you get in the car. You could do the drivers side also. The wiring harness I used was basically just long enough. I'd recommend starting from the light and working backwards to the battery, that way you don't have any extra wiring up top.

You can also use some type of adhesive wire clip to guide the wire down the rain gutter thing so it's a little more secure till it gets to the light. I attempted to do this, but I had trouble getting the clip things to stick.I'll probably try to redo it soon.

Like I said, I'll try to get some pictures when I get around to it to help explain it further.

This way is a lot easier and "safer" than drilling through the roof or something.

Scotch Exterior Mounting Tape, 1-Inch by 60-Inch

It never leaves a residue, sticks almost permanently to itself, and can hold quite well to even porous surfaces.

u/staggernaut · 4 pointsr/SpaceBuckets


Three 5-gallon buckets and one lid (Ace Hardware has white ones for $4, if you don't want orange or blue from HD or Lowe's.) All three cost $12-13.

THESE LEDS from Amazon. $13.59

THIS POWER SUPPLY, the Supernight LED Charger. It is $20.99. You will also need a power cord for it, which I recommend just going to literally ANY thrift store and picking out a nice three-pronged power cord. I'm fairly certain that any three-pronged power cord will work, so if you have one you're not using at home, you can use that.

THIS LED GROW LIGHT, which is 300w and cost $50.99.

TWO of these PC fans. Total cost $10.04.

I bought one of this black duct tape, one of this foil tape (although I recommend buying two, as I ran out with my first roll and had to buy another from the store), and also some double-sided tape, because, if your LED strip is like mine, the adhesive backing is almost nonexistent and the tape becomes necessary.

Oh, and good-quality velcro adhesive patches!

You will also need a power drill and a sturdy box cutter.

I started by taping the entire interior of one bucket with the foil tape, save for the bottom portion where the soil goes. Then I covered the outside with the black tape. Next I drilled holes in the bottom for drainage.

Then I took two of the other buckets and used a ruler's width to mark a cut line right below the lip of each bucket to create spacers. The process of cutting the plastic buckets was definitely the worst part of the process, especially since I didn't have a great cutter, so if you're getting a new one, don't be too cheap. I got this one and it's blade locking function no longer works after this project, so be advised. I lined the spacers with foil tape.

Using the remains of one of the other buckets, I trimmed more of the bucket down so that it's now only the bottom and stands 5" tall. I found some random large screws in my toolbox and drilled them around the circumference, which allows the rest of the bucket to be easily lifted off of the drain pan.

I then drew a circle about 1 cm in from the lip of the lid and cut that out. The light fits perfectly on it. There is lots of light escape at the rim, but it looks pretty cool, so I don't mind it for now.

For the power supply, I cut off the female end of the three-pronged cord I got from Arc Thrift and stripped the wires down a bit. There were three wires inside, green (ground), white (neutral), and black (live), which I then connected to driver. I was certain to unplug during any wire-play and I hope everyone else is, too.

The sidelights were sort of a struggle. I used a scrap of the buckets, like maybe 4-5 inches of bucket from about half-way down to a quarter, so not much. I then lined the inside with the double-sided tape, cutting strips, in an effort to conserve tape, which feels very stable. I drilled a hole and fed the cable through, then determined the best spot to drill a hole on the exterior bucket. It's about at the center of the bucket, or in my case, 13 cm down from the lip. Finally, I fed the LED cable through the exterior hole and the lights were basically in place, where it would sit right above the soil.

I didn't want to have to extend any cords, so I found an ideal spot to place the driver on the exterior so that all cables (LED strip, both fans) could reach their appropriate ports. I fixed the velcro onto the bucket and the driver and tidied the wires with some more duct tape.

Finally, I sealed the edges of both fans, inside and outside, with their respective tapes.

I'm pretty sure that's everything I've done to this point, but if I think of anything else, I'll add it. I'm likely going to black-out the spacers to reduce light leak.

Please let me know if you have any advice, questions, comments!

Thank you /r/SpaceBuckets, for the inspiration and wisdom!

The toggle bolt, or some type of fastener will indeed hold more weight and be a more permanent fix. However, you said you are a renter, which changes things.

In that case you might consider using a foam mounting tape, or the stronger exterior mounting tape.

Just make sure you clean both the back of the phone and the wall thoroughly, and then wipe both down with alcohol prior to tape application. If you put enough mounting tape on that phone, which looks fairly light, your troubles should be over. That's going to be your cheapest option that'll last as long as you are there and not require any special tools or wall surgery. Especially considering that wall looks pretty dodgy in the first place and trying to affix anything through it could be asking for more trouble than it is worth. If you owned it I'd advise different but that is not what you asked. Good luck.

u/veni_vidi_vale · 4 pointsr/headphones

Three possible "avenues of inquiry to explore", to quote Inspector Lewis:

  1. Apply electrical tape over the vents just below the termination of the headbands. You can "tune" the bass depending on how many louvers you close out. The one caveat is that the tape needs to be stiff but not resonate.

  2. Mass load the baffles a little more stably than the typical mods with something with more mass than play-doh. I've read a few posts about how tungsten putty works the best, but that's getting into unobtanium territory. I like [UHUtac] ( a lot. The trick is once the baffles are loaded, you can "shape" the reflections by using something like a phillips-type screwdriver to impress "x" marks on the baffles strategically. It's a lot of fun to figure out and do because you can get a bunch of subtle effects this way. Combining this with an appropriate amount of cotton wool in the cups to tame the treble/ upper mids a little also relatively brings out the bass a little. make sure you take the time to weigh and use the same amount of cotton wool in both cups!

    Another option is to reshape the baffles but that's at the next level of modding.

I've always called it "Sticky Tack".

Edit: Yup, here's some.

u/seelykay · 4 pointsr/christmas

Here's some ideas:

  • Lights/garlands around walls with command hooks to get this look. If your decorations are heavier, get bigger hooks. These are temporary and very easily removed and put up.
  • Decorating around the TV looks so cozy.
  • Sticky Tack to put up things like snowflakes on walls or doors (also very easily put up and removed!)
  • If you don't have space for a tree, you can try things like this or get a little tabletop one.
  • This wreath hanger might work (depending on how thick your door is). Does no damage, I use one just like it!
  • Window decals don't take up any space and are temporary.
  • Hanging ornaments on cabinet handles (surprisingly hard to find pictures of this, I do this all the time, just have to make sure you don't use ornament hooks and tie things with string or they might fall off and break).
  • Holiday decor for the rest of the house can make a big impact for how your space feels. Things like bedding or bath decor.

    I would focus on decorating by area to make the rest of your home feel festive, if you can't focus around a fireplace like you seem to have in the past.

u/mbudziRN · 4 pointsr/minipainting

Forgot your other question! It’s actually sticky tack like from the office supply section that would be for putting up posters and such. Loctite Fun-Tak Mounting Putty 2-Ounce (1087306) I use it to stick minis to pop bottles so I can spray paint them to prime them.

u/peacockpartypants · 4 pointsr/LifeProTips

Sticky Tak. That soft blue stuff you can find in the office supplies aisles. Test it on a small part of the poster, to make sure it won't cause damage. I've found for many paper materials I've used it to hang things, it hasn't caused any damage yet.

u/wombat_tree · 4 pointsr/Warhammer

It's just this stuff, maybe it's called something else where you live but it's just something to hold the parts together in a way that can be easily removed so you can check any potential issues before you glue everything. You don't have to have it it's just more convenient than holding the parts together by hand.

Looking at the default loadout the kill teams have on GW's website as an example, I'd definitely leave the shield, the two handed hammer and the heavy flamer separate as they cover up large portions of the marines body and would make things hard to paint. The others I'd probably just paint fully assembled. It's not about how detailed they are, it's about whether or not there are parts to the model that cover up other parts and would make those parts difficult or impossible to paint.

u/Mekose101 · 4 pointsr/playrust

He's not talking about Tic-Tacs or metal pin "Tacks" LOL

u/Xonim · 4 pointsr/boardgames

The Blood Rage models are plastic, not resin. I'd recommend getting primer from a hobby store like Michael's or Hobby Lobby. It should be a little cheaper if you get one of their 40-50% off coupons from their websites. This should be fine. As with any primer, you'll want to spray 1-2 thin coats, preferably when the air is dry (less than 50% humidity). You won't lose any detail that way.

As for the wash, you probably could get away with 1 of those bottles. You could either order 1 and then just order another (if you're ok waiting) when/if you run out, otherwise just order 2 right away. If you ever paint other models in the future, you'll use it.

Edit: I'd also recommend getting some Blue Tack to stick on the bottom of your models so you can stick them to some cardboard. It makes it easier to bulk-prime, and if you're just using a wash on them, you don't even have to remove them from the cardboard when you do that.

u/nukacolaguy · 3 pointsr/subaru

Use the 3m clear double sided mounting tape.

I have used this for many different body molding/piece applications and holds up really well.

Cut and fit with a razor knife, clean affected area before applying and then use a small clip clamp or anything else to apply a big of pressure to it and let it settle and dry for a few hours, should hold up great.

I have even used it on exterior body moldings and holds up in the summer heat.

u/abode-Pro · 3 pointsr/Abode

Here are some techniques that other customers have used and had some success with.

A. Use a 2" long peace of Monofilament fishing line or dental floss as a saw to cut the 2-sided tape. Place the line between the device and the surface it is stuck to, and saw as you pull the line across the surface.

B. Using a dull butter knife by prying at the corner of the device and slowly work your way around the device while prying a little at a time.

abode does not sell the two sided tape so we recommend using the 3M or Scotch indoor-outdoor Mounting Tape, it is gray with a red peel off backing and you can cut to fit. Found at Walmart and your local hardware stores.

u/Astramancer_ · 3 pointsr/LifeProTips

Personal suggestion, put packing tape (the thick clear stuff) on the backside of the poster in the corners and maybe a few other places, put a glob of blue sticky tack on the tape, and then mush it up on the wall. The tape on the poster will keep the tack from tearing the poster when you try and take it off.

Although, it would probably be better to take the poster to a copy shop or office (depot/max/whatever) shop and get it laminated. They might have a laminator big enough, call ahead first.

u/mrush007 · 3 pointsr/ImperialAssaultTMG

Here is my list I will put links when I can.

Citadel Shades- also known as washes. I would suggest Nuln Oil as your black wash and Reikland Fleshshade as a brown wash. Example you would black wash the probe droids but I would suggest the brown wash for the wookie.
I find these washes great for new painters because you don’t have to do anything to them. Use them right out of the pot.

Also the Citadel base paints that have the metal look to them like lead belcher are excellent for doing highlights on metal surfaces like the blasters or the droids.

For all my normal colors I only use the 1$ acrylic paint from normal craft stores. They work just as well as long as you water them down. You pay more for the special miniature paints and Side by side I did not see the difference in my Minis.

For primer I use white for most things even stuff that will be dark. It is much easier to make something darker. It is harder to lighten up it back up. The washes especially the black wash will darken up the mini as well so it is important for the colors to be brighter than you think they will needed to be.
Some talked about having to do more than one coat and for about half my colors I normally do two coats but the white gives me the freedom to just do one coat if I want it to look lighter. Example I have to paint a mini one time that was wearing jeans. I only applied one coat of blue paint then used the black wash over it. This gave the jeans this faded look and was done much easier than having to do the lighter highlights by hand.

For brushes a size 0 1 and 2 would be a good start. For washing I use a side 3-4 as well since that makes it quicker.

Varnishes there is only one to use Testors Dull coat

Ok here are items that are just really nice to have that you may not have thought about

You will need something to put the models on while you are painting them. I use corks and you can get those at a local craft store then you pick your brushes up. You don’t want to be holding on the mini while painting as your figures will pull even some of the dry paint off with enough handling.
Best way to attach them to the corks is poster tack. It is reusable and holds them very secure.

For priming I have seen a lot of people use a box to prime the minis and I have done this but I find it sometimes hard to get primer over the bottom of the minis. My solution to that is a yard stick. You are going to get paint all over it so make sure it is not one you ever plan on using as a yard stick again. Use the poster tack to minis to the stick. This allows me to flip the minis over completely to be able to get primer even in the hard to reach spots. I can spray about 12 minis at one time.

Edit wanted to add some examples of my work. These are the first minis I ever painted.

After seeing the various customizations out there I decided to take a shot at my own. I'm not a crafty sort (as you can probably tell) but I am pretty happy with the outcome.

This setup lets you see enemy number, HP, and status without having to look at a computer screen or sleeves. How to do it...

  1. Stands from SpielPro, though frankly the existing ones probably work fine.
    UPDATE: Don't buy them- the yellows are defective and you can't easily insert your standees without scuffing them.

  2. A labeler. I used this to print and attach the extra numbers in the middle.

  3. Some mounting putty. Never used putty before but this seemed to work fine. You don't need much- if you look at the far right stand, that is plenty.

  4. Small dice. Any color or whatever will do. I used these.

    Even if you aren't very crafty this is pretty easy to do and it makes updating combat results a breeze. Just rotate the dice and attach status as needed. I'm always looking to optimize, so if you can think of any further improvements, let me know!

> Am definitely thinking contrast paints are the way to go for starters. Do they come in inclusive sets?


Depends on if you remember how to paint, really. It's another way to do things. No sets, AFAIK, but they are intended to replace base, shade and layer paints with one paint, so they're overall either cheaper or better value for money, if you didn't do highlights before contrast paints.

I've started using putty tack, like this. No residue, very reusable, conforms to different component heights. It's worked out very well so far.

u/totally_just_bob · 3 pointsr/minipainting

Been painting a few years and lurking here forever, here's my advice:

> Mixing Brush: I am told that you should not mix paint with your primary brushes. Where can I buy a cheap brush for mixing, and anything special I need?

If I'm already using a "larger" brush (1 or higher) I'll mix with my good brushes and just be mindful of how far up the ferrule I am or use the back of the brush. If I'm using a detail brush I'll use a super cheap synthetic 2 or 3. Look on amazon or at a local art chain (Michaels) for cheap student grade packs of round brushes. You'll end up using these for terrain, PVA glue, and all sorts of other things.

> More Brushes: My kit came with a 2 flat and 0 round. What other brushes will I need, and what in your opinion is a good brand to buy? Any set that covers all the basics? Although I am new to painting, I'd like something that will last me and be quality. They sell SoHo brushes in my local store, which look like they are great quality. Any users here?

This topic can get pretty involved. Brushes have a lifespan so if you're new to the hobby I wouldn't recommend dropping money on higher end Kolinsky brushes like W&N Series 7 or daVinci Maestro. For a new painter I recommend Winsor & Newton's University series and Army Painter's Wargamer brushes. The W&N University brushes are higher than average student quality acrylic brushes that can be abused. They're great for basecoating with thicker mixes. The Wargamer brushes are a cheap intro into real sable hair so you can get started at layering with thinned paints.

> Primers: This is a big ? for me --- Spray primers, basic black white and grey? Which ones, what brand, etc... Really unsure what is recommended here, as in a store there are so many, but hoping /r/minipainting can help as we are all painting the same stuff. Would love some specific product recommendations here.

For the most part, you have three options: spray cans, brush-on, and airbrush. I can't really recommend spray primers - they require ventilation, have trouble with humidity, and can only be sprayed at one consistency. Many of the hobby spray cans advertised for basing your minis aren't actual primers. Brush-on primers are the most economical but run the risk of losing detail on the mini if applied heavily. Airbrushing is my preferred method using either Mr. Hobby's Mr. Surfacer 1500 thinned with Mr. Color Leveling Thinner for highly detailed minis, or Vallejo Primer for tabletop quality minis. Vallejo Primer's are acrylic and polyurethane so they're more protective but can sometimes take away detail.

> Finish: I saw a few videos where they spray some 'protective' finish on a product, I believe there are matte finishes as well as gloss finishes? Can I get any 'matte/gloss finish' product, or are there certain ones for miniatures?

Same three options as priming. If your minis are going to be handled often, I recommend a glossy coat then a matte coat. Glossy varnishes are stronger than matte varnishes, so this combo will give you the most protection. You are more likely to lose some detail this way. If your minis are for display only you can skip the varnish and just be careful. Dried acrylics are basically thin plastic so they have some durability on their own. Brand-wise I airbrush using Liquitex Professional gloss and matte varnishes, thinned with Vallejo airbrush thinner and a drop or two of Vallejo flow-improver. Vallejo varnishes are also good but Liquitex offers the best bang for your buck.

> Mini Holders: I found this product which looks amazing, but is not available until late 2017 since the Kickstarter has ended. Are there any similar products that someone could recommend, or should I just go with something very simple? Would love to hear some ideas.

I use an old Citadel paint pot and white poster tack to stick to the bottom of the base. If you want to paint individual parts, heat the tip of a needle/pin with a lighter, press it gently into the glue joint of the mini (the hole will be hidden later), then press the other side of the needle into a wine cork or similar.

> Brush Care: I got a "masters" paste from a store that I was told to rinse and swirl my brushes in after painting. Any other tips or is this okay?

Master's is the best option, just make sure you follow the directions and use warm water for best results. You can also get a small bottle of W&N Brusher Cleaner and Restorer to have on reserve if you accidentally let paint dry on one of your better brushes. If it's a cheap or synthetic brush you can clean it with original Windex (WITHOUT Ammonia-D) or Vallejo airbrush cleaner, followed by a wash with Master's.

> Carving/Scraping tools: I know some minis need to be cut from a sheet and some have mold lines that need to be cleaned. How is this done and what tools are needed?

Get a decent pair of sprue cutters - I recommend these. You should be able to find these for $10 at a local hobby store. For plastic minis you should be fine with just an X-acto or similar knife for getting rid of mold lines - just run the blade mostly perpendicular to the line and "shave" it gently.

> Storage Box: For all the little things that come along with painting, what do you use/recommend to store everything in?

A coffee mug works fine as a brush holder. You can try a hardware store for all sorts of containers if you're traveling with paints. Otherwise desk space and some imagination (spice racks) or money (official paint stand) are all you need.

> Paint Agitators: I was told to get some steel balls and put them in every paint bottle I have. It's okay to leave them in there. Would these work, or any concerns?

Please do not use steel ball bearings. You can attempt to buy "marine grade" ball bearings but unless it's reputable and expensive they are still likely going to rust and ruin your paint. I use hematite beads for necklaces for my paints. 4mm for dropper bottles and 6mm for pots. You can get them cheaper at Michaels w/ a coupon and they're inert so they won't stain your paints.

> Flow Improver: Thoughts? I was told to mix this into my washes. How much should I add, one drop? Is this product okay, or is this only for airbrushing?

Flow improver is generally used for airbrushing to extend the drying time and prevent clogs. Fluid retarder in the form of actual art supply from W&N or Liquitex, Vallejo's Glaze Medium, or Games Workshop's Lahmian Medium are what you're looking for. These can all be used to turn a normal paint into a wash (heavy dilution), or can be used to extend drying time for wet blending (light dilution). I can't give you exact ratios as each paint company, each color, and the age of your paints will dictate that. Trial and error is the only method here.

One thing that hasn't been mentioned yet is a wet palette. It will save you a lot of headache when learning to wet blend and will let you save mixed paints for many days. You can get one for cheap and use either the papers that come with it or kitchen parchment paper. Both will yield different results so play around with both. Be sure to use distilled water or you're likely to get some funk from mold after a couple days.

u/abujad · 3 pointsr/Steelbooks

I actually used magnetic sheets.

They have an adhesive side but I just stapled them to the wall using a thin caliber staple gun. To be honest I even cut those sheets in half and spaced them about a few inches apart. They are surprisingly strong and could hold more than 1 steelbook easily with half a sheet.

u/will_14m · 3 pointsr/Steelbooks

I used those sheets and cut them into 4 evenly pieces. They're adhesive magnetic sheets so 1 side you use to stick on the wall, and the other side you stick the steel books to.

I used some extra tape to prevent the adhesive tape to fall off due to the weight of the steel books. The magnets themselves are very strong so it really holds them in place.

EDIT: If you need visual aids, I live streamed the entire process minus me cutting the sheets into pieces:

Once in a while you can see the adhesive fail due to the weight of the steel books hence the use of tape for reinforcement.

I have my E6 attached to my Fuze with 3M Dual Lock. Here's a good article from InnerFidelity with some more information.

u/random12356622 · 3 pointsr/Dashcam

Generally you can use double sided mounting tape. I like Gorilla Heavy Duty Double sided Mounting tape (~$6 USD)

  • It is helpful to peel both sides of the tape, then cut it to length, as it can be tricky to remove the film from the tape after it is cut.

  • You can use a flat scraper to remove it - just like an inspection sticker.

  • When reapplying it - make sure the window is clean, and be aware of where the camera lens is in comparison to the rest of the dash cam.

  • If you can place it with in the window wiper sweep, it is very nice, but if not it is not such a big deal. - You should be reading out loud the plate in rain/snow/or even shine as all dash cams miss plates.

  • If you live in extreme heat areas - Gray double sided Mounting tape is suggested - as it will deal with heat better.

  • With BlackVue DR900S I suggest getting the 2CH model, as 1CH is not upgrade able to 2CH, as it is different hardware and will lack the rear channel port.

  • Also I suggest getting a Mobile WiFi Hotspot (separate purchase) to enable the cloud feature. - Requires an attached Cellphone LTE network (data rates apply, Contract rates apply, roaming, coverage areas apply). Also limitations with in the Cloud network itself (Upload/download/storage/streaming limits.) - However, the dash cam can send out Cellphone Text Message Notification(s) of G sensor activation(s) while in parking mode. - So you know if your vehicle was hit.

  • Also with the BlackVue DR900S 2CH - I would be aware of what Codec I was using. - BlackVue DR900S 2CH can use multiple different options of Codecs and it will effect space/video quality of the recordings. One Higher video quality but takes up more space, other Lower video quality, but takes up less space.

  • Highly suggest hardwiring the dash cam with a Hardwire kit which has a Low voltage cut off feature (Adjustable) Voltage/Timer based (Deep cycling battery 11.8v, 12.0v, 12.2v,) (Normal use 12.4v) options, or an external heat rated battery pack ($200-300 USD)

    Battery Packs: It is an option, but most don't.

  • Easier to setup - ($200-300 USD) Heat Rated External Battery pack, which would do the same function, but easier to setup/expand to extra cells, and more expensive.

    This would power the dash cam + Charge when the vehicle is running, and not effect the vehicle's battery at all.

  • DIY - Here is a possible setup - Obviously, you would just purchase a deep cycle battery + Battery harness/cage to secure it + Trickle charger that is powered via an ignition only fuse, and there would be no need for the power inverter.

    With battery packs, it may or may not be able to detect if the vehicle is on/off. It really depends upon the setup. With retailers - like Blackboxmycar - They can tell you a lot more about battery packs than I can.

Just as I'm getting ready to upload an image of it, I think about discs with a beveled inside grip and how I could make those stay better. So I come up with the idea for a little rubber or maybe some double sided mounting tape for added grip. This tape. Damn it. That's when I realized, that sort of tape with a modified L Bracket (so it looks more like an M) would be all you need, and would hold better than anything else out there.

This double sided tape is finicky, but sticks VERY well:

I'm new to dios too, but the hobby costs so little in comparison to purchasing figures (and comics) that wasting a bit of material in testing and mistakes doesn't make too meaningful an impact on a budget.

I heat shrink them and then use 3M gel tape (it's super sticky and non-conductive but still removable) I also add a tie wrap over it for good measure even though it's probably over kill for small esc's.

u/MajorVegas · 2 pointsr/watercooling

You can drill some holes or use the tape of the gods. This stuff is great to have around regardless.

Regarding fans, it is 4 channels not 4 fans, I'm about to put 12 onto mine.

u/koalapear · 2 pointsr/CableManagement

The power strip is attached with this tape. I used cable clips similar to these but replaced the crappy tape that comes on them with the same stuff I used for the power strip. The ones I actually used I found at Ace Hardware. All of the power bricks are attached with Velcro so that they can be easily removed. I also used these cable ties so, again, everything can be easily removed. I was able to pick it all up at Ace Hardware but if you're not near one of those I'm sure Homedepot or any hardware store should carry most of this stuff. Hope this helps!

Good to know, I'll just go to a cabinet store soon, and this the 3m tape?

3M Scotch 4011 Exterior Mounting Tape, 1 in x 60 in

u/pzer0 · 2 pointsr/apple

I should have just put the link in my original comment... I'm lazy :P

Here ya go... It's even cheaper than when I got mine. Now $3.33 with free shipping. It is NOT a high quality dock, but it definitely works with a (larger) case on the phone. I used some 3M double sided tape. This tape is STUPID strong, and has a variety of uses. I always have a roll in my tool kit.

u/Emiliak · 2 pointsr/CarAV

Try this 3M Scotch Permanent Outdoor Mounting Tape. It last through baking heat and freezing snow. Make the most use of all surface area. Like MrPolymath said, heat the tape first (I sit on it for a few minutes). When you apply it, press on the radio hard for 30 seconds. I think it'll hold.

u/chrisbrl88 · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Mounting tape. Hardware store carries it.

u/ThatCollegeWashout · 2 pointsr/college

Just be careful with tape, sometimes even that can damage the walls. Personally I'd recommend the tacky puddy to attach to the wall.

u/Bastinenz · 2 pointsr/Amd

Have you thought about using removable glue pads like these to maybe add more support for the fans and absorb some of the vibration to reduce noise?

It's basically like slightly sticky Play-Doh, won't do much good on its own but I imagine that it would work pretty well if combined with those zip-ties.

u/Kanstul1600 · 2 pointsr/minipainting

I recently started using Scotch Indoor Mounting Tape, 1-Inch x 125-Inches, 1-Roll (314P) and I've been extremely happy with the hold on heavier metal figs. I have to pop the base off with a knife, but the mini stays put.

Get the 3M brand mounting tape. This is the exact solution I use for my magnetic strip. It works great. Here's a link.

u/Oxygenforeal · 2 pointsr/sffpc

You should get the SF450 with the Node 202. Use double sided mounting tape for the SSD.

You won't be hitting over 300W with most Node 202 build. The SF450 is noticeably better quality, quieter, and is modular. The FD Integra may work for a locked i3/i5 + 1060 or 1050, but anymore than that you should get the SF450.

You should get some kind of wrist extensor training tool to counter the flexor training you are about to do. I use these:

I love the CoC training tools, been using them for a while. Recently closed the 1.5 and now the 2 is what I am aiming for. Busting them out at parties to fuck with people is fun as hell

u/TheeSweeney · 2 pointsr/GripTraining

Grip training is tricky because compared to most other forms of strength training, there is much more emphasis on tendon strength. And the thing about tendons is that they don't give you the same kind of feedback that muscles do when they get tired. All this means I've found it's easier to overtrain and injure your tendons, and so it's important to throw in extra rest days here and there, especially as a beginner or when upping the resistance.

Take some time off, stretch your hands, and you'll probably be alright.

Also, don't neglect the forearm muscles used to open your fingers. A lot of grip trainers focus solely on squeeze strength to their detriment, the equivalent of exclusively working out your biceps but never your triceps. For the most effective strength t's important to work complimentary muscle groups. I've been using these after a tennis player friend recommended them to me a few years ago and they're excellent.

u/mdillenbeck · 2 pointsr/boardgames

Response to question block 1

I have yet to play against the AI player ("Alien Player"), and while the Doomsday Weapon scenario is a bit "simple" I find it enjoyable trying to build up and prepare for the onslaught of a superior foe. Then gain, I like the theme and simple play of Ogre (so glad I got the pocket edition when it was $2.95; I can't see paying for a deluxified version of this, but I do know back in the day people did buy minis and those did look pretty awesome).

Close Encounters adds in a challenge against Space Amoebas plus revises the alien AI. Better yet (for me), it adds in a cooperative mode and a way to play that aren't "kill another player".

I haven't even punched my Replicators expansion yet, so I can't comment on it. Nice hex tiles are included through.


I do want to note that there are ways to speed up the play of Space Empires: 4X:

  • Quick Start in a competitive game is where set out the board where each player has a home territory and home territory tokens, then flip and reveal them all rather than explore and all colonies are set to a full 5 population.
  • Low Maintenance is where cost to maintain fleets is halved
  • Instant Technology Upgrade is where all ships get the tech when developed rather than having to upgrade (reduces bookkeeping thus making it play more like its predecessor game, Stellar Conquest).
  • Short Game uses "earn 3 Colony Points" to win in addition to "destroy an enemy homeworld". Players build a full (5 point) colony in deep space for 1 Colony Point OR destroy an enemy colony (not damage) for 1 Colony Point.
  • Play Simultaneously encourages players to do things at the same time rather than sequentially when it doesn't involve potential conflict. Everyone builds at the same time, everyone moves at the same time, etc. Of course, you all need to know the game and trust one another to play this way.

    The point is you could probably get a fast multiplayer game in, and then as the group gets faster you can start dropping some of these to experience the fuller flavor of the game.


    Concerning the P500, there are some staple games that GMT will always print. Men of Iron: Volume I failed at P500 and wasn't printed due to costs, but is now back in a tri-pack. Twilight Struggle will always be reprinted despite the P500 number because it will eventually sell (and has made enough to justify keeping a stock on hand). Space Empires: 4X products are between the two, but on the side of "reprint it as it will sell."


    Response to question block 2

    The game board is 21" x 28.75", so it should fit in the 35.5" x 25.5" size - but it may shift around. Solution? Buy some poster tack and tear off little pieces. If you aren't leaving it set up for months, this should clean off nicely. Since you aren't hiding your units from an opponent, they can all be face up with the number indicator next to them (though you might run out of space if you develop large fleets - but then use post it notes and make fleet boards to track... Close Encounters comes with 3 fleets, which is disappointing as Stellar Conquest had 15 fleet counters - so maybe make your own counters).


    Rather than setting up the board with exploration tokens, get some draw bags and draw as you explore (maybe put a cube or a piece of poster tack on unexplored spaces to mark them... or a piece of post-it note). I like one for each player homeworld color plus one in black for deep space counters. This speeds setup/teardown for me.

    Also, get some GMT counter trays to sort/store all those counters and use the tray divider template. I have 4 player trays with all their ships and 1/4 of the number counters on the top two rows divided up into thirds, and this fits the first two expansions in. On the lower half I have full sized bins for all the other counters (MS pipelines, colony ships, homeworld counters, fleets, etc). It works very nicely, but I'll probably have to subdivide a couple more bins once I punch Replicators. The great thing about the trays is they have lids that are fully removable, so quick setup and and quick teardown.


    With these tricks, I think you should be able to setup, store, restore, and then tear down the game pretty efficiently without too many problems - but still take photos just in case.


    EDIT: Solo Scenarios

    Okay, did a read over the rulebooks to break down the solitaire games.

    Solitaire Scenario #1 & #2: Doomsday Machine (**Base Game)

    Small or large map. Build up your colonies & defenses to face off against 3 waves of increasingly tougher Doomsday Machines. Basic tutorial on how to build up defenses in light of a statistically superior foe, but won't teach you how to get aggressive and win the game normally.

    Solitaire Scenario #3: Base Game Alien Player(s)

    Face off against 2-3 alien players. These aliens get CP in a few different categories (defenses, tech, fleet), where fleet CP are not spent until you either move to attack their homeworld or encounter one of their fleets. There are two types of fleets: regular and raider (cloaking). It gives you more of a sense of what it is like to go out an attack while defending yourself against other players, but you don't get to see the same stacks as you would in a multiplayer game.

    Solitaire Scenario #4: Space Amoebas (Close Encounters)

    Three different giant space amoebas have appeared in deep space. While expanding, you need to research science technology so you can eventually build space vessels (no counters provided, use mine sweepers counters instead). Then you have to go out and survey the amoebas, earning 10 research points to determine how you can attack them. Finally, you build a fleet and go wipe them out. Oh, all the while the amoebas will be dividing and slowly taking over more and more hexes. You can build mines and move them into a hex where the amoebas are to stop the spread that turn, but then there is a chance they will learn to attack the mines and become immune to them.

    Your goal is to save your civilization from this encroaching threat. Difficulty determines how soon they start spreading. This is the opposite of the Doomsday Machine scenarios, so you are instead focuses on learning how to build an offensive fleet and how to take the battle to an enemy.

    Solitaire Scenario #5: Close Encounters Alien Player(s)

    This uses a base game like system but adds in a bunch of extra rules from close encounters, and there are flowcharts to help determine what the alien players does. The aliens now can colonize planets, take over your colonies, build exploration and extermination fleets, might destroy colonies that they can't take with ground troops, get alien artifact cards, and so on.

    Solitaire Scenario #6: Close Encounter Alien Player(s) VP game*

    Takes the 2 player cooperative variant with a galactic capitol you need to protect and turns it into a solo game. Aliens also now earn VPs, so can also win that way.


    As /u/grey81 said, it isn't quite the real game. You don't have another intelligent human player moving pieces and developing stacks, you don't see them revealing colonies and building MS pipelines, and you don't see the stacks suddenly shift towards you and ask yourself "is it a bluff or an attack fleet - and do I have tech to defend or should I go on the attack first?" However, the basic game even multiplayer is still "survive the onslaught while figuring out how to attack yourself" and isn't that much different from the Solitaire Scenarios (especially the
    Close Encounters alien player ones).

    Either way, as a solo player I think Replicators isn't too useful to get beyond having some neat components. No solitaire scenarios officially made for it, and I'm not sure you could use the content in it too effectively for a solitaire scenario. Unfortunately, multiplayer solitaire wouldn't work well for this game due to hidden information and a bluffing element... so you'll need to decide if it fits your style. (I personally am glad they have an objective based solitaire mode vs "get your best score" type play you see in
    Agricola or Subdivision* - but others love that style and hate this battle oriented style of victory.)

u/djkrugger · 2 pointsr/intj

If the glue itself is her concern you can use "Poster tack" it's removable and leaves no residue.

u/NoobSamoht · 2 pointsr/diypedals Poster Putty is useful when holding components in place while soldering, for those that dont have a fancy circuit board holder.

u/Older_Man_Of_The_Sea · 2 pointsr/magicTCG

Never done it, but I would try something like a padded laptop tray and use some poster putty for the cards to keep them in place.

u/undeclared1744 · 2 pointsr/EliteDangerous

I don't know the proper name but we call it sticky tack. It's used for hanging posters ect on the wall. You can find it with office/school supplies. It typically comes in blue or grey.

Amazon link

u/ph423r · 2 pointsr/battletech

You could, but I've never had any problems using this Plus if you get to putting together many mini's at once it's a lot cheaper to have a pack or two of that than multiple of the stands. The way it works best for me is use a stiff piece of cardboard or plastic as a base, get the mini & tack setup in a way that's going to hold it in the right position, add the glue, and then just set it to the side. (The cardboard makes it easier to move without pulling any pieces apart) It's really handy for those times when the glue decides it wants to take all night and into the next day to dry, and you still have most of a pile of tack left to use on other mini's.

u/WuTiger · 2 pointsr/DCcomics

you need environment. a long time ago i had scenes set up where teams would be fighting those big ass sentinels from the Matrix, and Overtkill from Spawn. Get bigger enemies and bases and junk to brace the things on, or get some sticky tack

u/MrGulio · 2 pointsr/Warhammer40k

A tip for the knees and the belt buckle. You can use sticky tack or similar products to mask off parts of the model to make really clean lines if you don't have a very steady hand (I know I don't for some scales).

If you can, grab some poster putty at an office supply store. It'll hold the big gear steady. Have fun!

u/beingevolved · 2 pointsr/funkopop

The slightest nudge will send her flying! I put a little poster putty under the feet of the Star Wars Pop!s that can't stand on their own (K2S-O Maz, IG-88, Hera, Sabine, ME-809) and firmly place them down on a shelf. I have also used it to place some Stranger Things literally upside down on the bottom of a shelf. The putty starts to warp and dry, so it needs to be replaced every few months or so. I take all my Star Wars Pop!s off the stands so they better match my other lines.

Poster tac | Blu tac - I haven't used it first hand (edit: on board games), but I'd be tempted to try this stuff as a something relatively inert, hopefully not going to interact with the inks etc., and non-permanent but will still hold things down/keep them from skittering.

u/anonaaahh · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

to stick the press on to the stand, use loc tite mounting putty

Loctite Fun-Tak Mounting Putty 2-Ounce (1087306)

u/Bobtheranger · 2 pointsr/3Dprinting

I have the exact same printer - what I've been using is mounting putty, rolling it into small balls, and then placing it under all four legs. The problem with Monoprice's printer is that the metal frame allows for a lot of vibration and shaking during prints (particularly fast ones), since usually one leg seems to always be in the air. Mounting putty dampens a lot of the movement and transfers it onto the table/surface, as long as you can place a small amount of putty on each corner, then press the printer down. Also, I mounted it onto a sturdy faux-granite countertop, which seemed to reduce the shaking to virtually zero.

Here's an example of the putty I use - I found it at a local hardware store for $2 a pack, and you can use it for a bunch of other non-3D printing stuff. It's non-toxic, easy-to-roll, has easy removal, worked in a bunch of temperature conditions, and stays pliable for a long time.

u/ralphyboy69 · 2 pointsr/funkopop

Blu Tack is the preferred brand I believe. It actually has decent reviews compared to sticky tack.

u/TheWoodBotherer · 2 pointsr/DIY

Interesting project!

I take it that the whole assembly will be mounted vertically on a wall for display purposes?

Would a few unobtrusive pins/ pegs/headless nails into the backboard in strategic places to support the Games/Console work? You could colour them to match the background, or even just make them into some kind of shiny feature?

Alternatively, perhaps some transparent acrylic sheeting made into either a narrow shelf/ shelves or some clips, might be an option which would be near-invisible at any distance....

Or could you bend some thin, stiff wire/ brass rod into supports/clips and fix it to the backboard, as this might also be quite unobtrusive depending on how you do it....

Otherwise, magnets and/ or velcro might be a good 'Plan B,' although be careful when using magnets around electronics! :>)>

A really cheap temporary solution might be a big dollop of Blu-Tack (, but I'm not sure this would hold up very well over time :>)>

Hope that helps, good luck! :>)>

PS - don't forget to make the presentation frame easily openable, for when access to the Console is needed!

u/cupboard1 · 2 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

I haven't used it but have heard good things about Blu-Tack:

u/ACleverMoose · 2 pointsr/minipainting
u/ssl-3 · 2 pointsr/audiophile

Blu-tack, poster-tack, etc:

A few tiny balls of this stuff under any speaker will keep it from walking. It keeps a light, cast-aluminum enclosure that I have on a glass shelf from dancing, and it scales up just fine.

(It will probably stain. So will anything else with some weight on it. I've had the non-sticky side of foam weather stripping pull layers of baltic birch plywood apart before.)

u/Think_Positively · 2 pointsr/BudgetAudiophile

Most commercially available stands will have 3M or similar two-sided adhesive. I use Blu Tack on mine, and it takes a surprising amount of force to dislodge the cabinets once they've settled. That's a US link, but I'm sure you can find it in Europe.

While I don't necessarily know what's available in your market, I will add that you should take precise measurements before buying anything. If those monitors aren't at ear-level, your sound is likely to be compromised.

u/LaLocaChristina · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

You need to put some weight on the hanging film. I use this to hang my drying films, and this on the end of each individual film.

u/cbiscut · 2 pointsr/Pyrography

I always go for personal stuff. So my Carcassonne set has the roads and monasteries themed after the Super Mario Brothers 3 world maps. The castle pieces didn't play nice with 8bit aesthetics so I kept the wobbly shapes and just filled them in with things we've done together, movies we've seen, dates we've been on, etc so that when a castle is built it's made out of our relationship. Which is WAAAY more symbolic and sweet than I intended it to be originally when I panicked after my Mario Brothers plan went to shit. Bought a little wooden chest with a latch for piece storage and burned the score track onto the top of it.

Catan will probably be similar in nature. I just haven't sourced out the wooden hexes yet or planned out if I'm using actual Catan cards or getting my own printed, etc. She likes Breaking Bad a lot, maybe I'll make an island based around meth production.

One of the things I found helped me with my versatool was using a large binder clip on the edge of my table. If you squeeze the little shiney wing you can take it off of the body, slip it around the cord, then reattach it to the body of the clip so that it acts like a catch for the rheostat.

8 hours!? YOU'RE AN ANIMAL! A MACHINE! If you've got about $10 go pick up a crappy burner from WalMart and try it out. At the very least you'll be able to identify if your versatool is holding you back or if you just have a slow, methodical pace.

I see you have 4" ducting but trust me you're definitely going to want to have this, thankfully 6" ducting isn't to expensive. Also buy these, so much easier than duct tape and these for managing the ducting. This and this too for supporting the inline fan and filter, the inline fan at full power will vibrate very slightly and I feel that the bungee cords help minimize vibration. I usually use zip ties for managing cords but also as a precautionary measure, I have a few loosely secured zip ties on my inline fans just in case a bungee cord were to become unsecured which that has never happened thankfully but you can never be to safe.

Both of these are easily remedied with some double sided velcro.

It's not perfect but it's wayyyy better than what it originally was.

For posters I think regular ol' blu-tack would work just fine.

I generally use mounting tape though. Probably overkill for posters. Looks like this. You can find them at pretty much any hardware store.

u/ActionKbob · 1 pointr/letsplay

How are you hanging them currently? I have a ton of this stuff up on my wall and I use 3M mounting tape. It hangs like a charm and if I need to move a panel, the tape comes right off, no damage to the wall or anything. I put up a link to the amazon page, but you can get that stuff at Walmart very cheaply

u/MisterSherman · 1 pointr/BeardedDragons

Light is attached to glass, I cut out a notch in the foam. I attached both using this

u/MisterXman · 1 pointr/Gunpla

I used this stuff on popsicle sticks and stuck different grits of sandpaper to them. It works pretty well. I suppose you could also stick a bunch of pieces side by side on sandpaper to make little square pads if you wanted to. They probably sell it at hardware stores or retail stores. Craft stores also sell foam sheets you could cut up and glue or double sided tape sandpaper to.

u/Adonlude · 1 pointr/Hue

I have had good luck with 3M double sided glass mounting tape. Its a translucent 1mm thick rubber material with strong adhesive on both sides:

Here is an outdoor type:

u/DOS-equis · 1 pointr/techsupportmacgyver

Some 1/4" x 1/4" squares of 3m 4010 double sided tape would have helped in that situation.

u/mbg1604 · 1 pointr/teaching

This. Nothing will every fall off the walls. Ever.

u/PigeonProwler · 1 pointr/AskNYC

There's one for doors called Magic Mesh. You can also rig one up yourself with super strong tape and a roll of screen from a hardware store, but the magnetic closure is what makes Magic Mesh so convenient. I'd opt for the removable screens noted above.

u/dstaller · 1 pointr/battlestations


Both should do the job just fine. The second one is weaker supposedly but I'm pretty sure it's the one I used for my power strips and they've held up well. I always worry about going too strong and trying to remove it later.

u/flat_tree · 1 pointr/nottheonion
u/LimaEchoGolfOscar · 1 pointr/lego

Could be this tape. It is not exactly the samejet I think 3M is called Scotch in the US. The tape is quite thick and very sticker.

u/sityaR · 1 pointr/Dashcam

Should be pretty common, would be surprised if Wal-Mart doesn't carry it.

Here is an example of the tape on Amazon (not affiliated with the seller).

u/Route66_LANparty · 1 pointr/Multicopter

> Well shit didn't think about that with the controller. Here is exactly what I ordered.

According to the description it comes with a receiver.

> Just bought 2 of the 3S 5500mAh 30-40C

That should do you nicely.

> Any other random things you think we will need

Using amazon links and favoring prime options even if a few $$ more. The most cost effective way to get any of the below would be ebay and slow free shipping.

  • Double sided mounting tape to help hold the ESCs, receiver, or flight controller in place. I do NOT use the "heavy duty" or "permanent" mounting tape as you may want to move things around or swap out parts at some point. My preference is the 3M/Scotch Clear Mounting Tape as I find to easy to remove from the surface. Should be able to find the mounting tape at hardware store or even a target/walmart.
  • Heat shrink tubing
  • You'll need a way to connect your batteries to your power distribution board. The batteries you picked use a Dean-Style T Connector. You'll need to make a connector cable like this to attach to your power dist board. - Image. You can either make your own cable from scratch or cut and repurpose existing cables.
  • From "Scratch" - Connectors + Wire + some heat shrink and soldering time.
  • Repurpose - Buy one of these, cut off the unneeded end, and solder to the S550's power distribution board.
  • Parallel battery connector. Gives you the option to either run one or two 5500mAh batteries. Making a 11000mAh for long flights -

  • If your radio receiver doesn't come with servo leads you'll need them to connect between the radio receiver and the flight controller (and gimbal)
  • Short -
  • Extension - Might be needed to run leads to the gimbal for tilt control. Prime... so you can wait on this till you know if the other servo cables will be long enough.

  • Battery straps. I'm running out the door so can't search/grab more links right now, but you'll need some velcro straps to hold the battery or batteries in place.

  • You'll want to check ebay for extra S550 arms if you haven't already. Shipping will take a while, but they are cheap and good to have some spare arms, as they will break. Alternate front/back/side colors are nice to help maintain orientation in the sky.

  • Extra props is you haven't ordered any. NOTE: The DJI E310 Power set uses the newer 9450 DJI props instead of the older 9443

u/felclef · 1 pointr/iPhoneX

this is where I saw the idea:

u/DiEz3l · 1 pointr/pcmods

For some of the pieces you're not sure how to attach. Check out this stuff.

Used it for years in my R/C hobby, And am using it in my 540T and 900D in some spots. Stuff is absolutely awesome.. It's double sticky tape, that fucking works and isn't 1/2" thick.

u/MarsOG13 · 1 pointr/DIY

BUT, when taking it down use dental floss to pull it off the wall, otherwise it will pull the paint and maybe drywall off with it. Shit if tough AF.

I just used this:

Heavy-Duty Exterior Mounting Tape, Holds 5 lb., 1"x60"

Some people also use a Velcro system so they can remove it if they want but this seemed cleaner and it's just as easy to take off with the tape but you'll need to put a new piece on if you do.

u/tomkatt · 1 pointr/techsupportmacgyver

SSDs have no moving parts. Half the time I just drop them in the bottom of the case or shove them in 3/5 or 5/25 bays. I don't care where they go. I'm also a big fan of 2-sided tape. That stuff I linked will hold anything inside a case with just tiny bits of it. I've stuck SSDs and HDDs to it, and I've even mounted fans in odd places with the stuff, just tape triangles over the corners.

u/officer21 · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

They are conservative with their estimates. I have a Corsair 200R, the allowable height is 160mm. I installed a glass window on the inside with mounting tape, so the clearance should be 160mm - thickness of the glass - thickness of the mounting tape. I got a 165mm air cooler, it fits.

u/manintheyellowhat · 1 pointr/Multicopter

I'd recommend this stuff rather than any sort of velcro.

u/ImYoungxD · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

You should apply it when it's above 50 degrees. Otherwise, warm up the wall, apply and hold for a minute or two to adhere.

I have 3 on my brick wall.

u/bsmith0 · 1 pointr/Multicopter

I used this to my hold escs, RX, and VTX. Do you think this is up to the task of holding on in a crash, or should I add zipties. Thanks

u/efx0a · 1 pointr/pcmods

Thanks! At first I thought I would have to bolt the window in, which I didn't like since it doesn't look as clean. I ended up getting double sided mounting tape from Walmart, I believe it was 3M brand. Similar to this -

So after I cut the window out with a dremel, I used rubber grommet edging that I bought at Performance-PCs (which is where I bought most of the modding supplies I used in this project) - to line the edge, then apply the mounting tape and set the window in.

u/Mugendon · 1 pointr/oculus

Have you ever tried these things to "glue" something on the ceiling? Works fine for me for the pulleys.

I don't think a system like the virtuix boom will ever have as less tension as a ceiling setup, since it has only one pulley (I have 5 double pulleys on the ceiling, which might be a bit overdone, but i would recommend at least 3 double pulleys).

u/SystemFolder · 1 pointr/mildlyinteresting

A bit of adhesive putty might have removed it, although precision tweezers might have worked better.

u/Sarcausm · 1 pointr/DnD

It looks like you might not be in the US, so you might not be able to order this, but something like this might work.

It's cheap, and one package should last you quite some time. Just rip off very small bits to stick your board to your battlemat. That should keep it from slipping around.

u/Wala2x · 1 pointr/PSVR

My question is how to stack them? I was thinking of getting some silver or black legos and making my own rack or something similar.

u/ironfixxxer · 1 pointr/buildapc

Double sided tape would work if it's strong enough. Something like this stuff.

What case do you have? You may be better off using the side panel fan as intake so it gives your GPU fresh, cool air.

u/Keavon · 1 pointr/SpaceXLounge

I just use Scotch indoor mounting tape and attach them straight to a wall. Works very well on most of my patches, although a few stubborn ones from my SpaceX patch collection keep falling off every few weeks or months. If they keep falling, just add more tape to cover a greater percentage of the backing surface area. Other non-SpaceX patches don't seem to fall off as easily, it's something about the iron-on backing material SpaceX uses which doesn't like adhering well to the tape.

u/qozuei · 1 pointr/Vive

u/mr_marble_man · 1 pointr/GripTraining

Dude, thanks so much again for the informative response! Going to shoot for higher reps with the Trainer before moving back to the #1.

While I got you here, quick question (since you seem to know what you're talking about); do you have any thoughts on these expander band things?:

I'm thinking they might be good to do on days I'm not doing grip training to avoid injury and increase flexibility. I'd imagine one could just use strong rubber bands or whatever but they're cheap enough that I'm thinking about ordering them. I noticed some soreness after using my #1 before I got the Trainer and it seemed expanding my fingers (even without the tension of bands) was helpful in relieving it.

u/Stubb · 1 pointr/CompetitionShooting

Everyone uses the Captains of Crush. These things are no joke—the Trainer model will be plenty challenging if you're pretty strong. Back off to the Sport or Guide if you're not.

The Expand Your Hand Bands are recommended for working the opposing muscles and warding off tendonitis.

Be careful mixing grip training with serious dry fire. It's real easy to flare up some nasty tendonitis in your elbows.

u/catchlight22 · 1 pointr/climbing

On top of what /u/Glocjt referenced:

Buy these, and get a heavy hammer. Work in some pronator/supinator exercises.

u/edbutler3 · 1 pointr/GripTraining

Yes, it will help with the extensors on the top of your forearm.

I bought this pack: which I like because it gives you a number of progressively wider bands so you can do progressive overload like in any other strength training.

u/crashfrog · 1 pointr/dndnext

There's all kinds of options - you can paint a number onto the base of the monsters if you know you're going to use more than two or three, or you could stick a little numbered flag on the mini with poster tack.

u/Mischif07 · 1 pointr/DnD

Amateur tip from a fellow newbie.

Get yourself some poster tack and an old pill bottle. Use the tack to stick the mini to the top of the pill bottle and hold that when you're painting. You'll get less paint on you, and you'll avoid smudging the beautiful work you just did when you turn to the other side. :)

You can fill the pill bottle with pennies or something to give it some heft so it doesn't fall over constantly. :)

u/KidMoxie · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

I use this Elmer's stuff, I think it's basically the same stuff. Adhesive and insulation!

u/Yaarghl · 1 pointr/crafts

This stuff. I use it a lot at work for our safety posters.

(Also, if you do go the spraymount route, I would spray the foam board, not the poster. This way the sticky is on the board and the poster reamains relatively clean.)

u/Quantarum · 1 pointr/stevenuniverse

I recommend poster tack, a small disk of it under the base can resist those mild table bumps. -Q.

u/Gimmehat · 1 pointr/stop_motion

Nice job! Try to keep the camera in focus (how blurry or clear the images is and what range it is clear at) and the set stable though.
When I started I had this same issue, but it's a super easy fix.

Get some poster tack like this, roll it into small balls and stick it under objects you don't want moving, such as the stationary car I use this on my videos all the time for background objects and under the feet of figures to keep their feet from sliding.

With the focus issue, all you need to do is turn off auto focus, your camera is trying to focus on the car which makes it out of focus for a few seconds while you're taking the picture. All you gotta do is make it so that its on manual focus or MF so that it doesn't attempt to change the focus in the middle of the shots.

Good luck and Happy Animating!

u/vabann · 1 pointr/multicopterbuilds

Poster Putty great when you have delicate items to solder, holds stuff in place without having to mess with grippers and clips.

Gorilla Clear Tape I use it to keep my RX in place and under all my ESCs in combination with zip ties. Some of the stickiest stuff I've found yet and I run a sign shop so I deal with adhesives all the time.

u/gotreef · 1 pointr/DIY

This seems needless complex.

Why not skip the thumbtacks? You can just as easily trim the tape around the magnet and apply it directly to the measured points on the wall.

Or better yet, poster putty or something similar. It's cheaper, faster, and from my experience, non-damaging.

u/MadtownMaven · 1 pointr/AskWomen

Yep. Although this was covering up the walls of my cube that are made for push pins. I'd think for real walls you could get that poster putty stuff so that it won't hurt the walls or anything.

u/freakingwilly · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I'm not sure how far you're willing to go, but one of my favorite solutions is poster putty. It seems silly, but this stuff sticks to just about anything. I used it to mount my sensor bar on top of my LCD TV. The best part is that if I don't like/want it anymore, it comes off cleanly.

u/lexpython · 1 pointr/howto
u/hobosox · 1 pointr/minipainting

Not super cheap but this will do the trick. You can also use poster tack (YMV with different brands). Maybe spray a coat of matte varnish on before applying tape/putty just to be safe.

Masking fluid could work too, but it has some caveats. You need to paint it on pretty thick, and don't let it sit for too long or it will be hard to get it all off. Its better for paint chips and small things, I don't recommend it for hoards of tyranids.

Masking is one of the drawbacks of airbrushing. You might be better off using a brush for the red, then carefully airbrushing highlights with just some quick masking. Then go back and touch up the blue with a brush if needed.

u/johnnythrash · 1 pointr/airpods

So, for the weapon slipping out thing, you could try a small amount of blue tack, like you would use to hang posters to make the spot she should be holding a little thicker. I've used this on Gundam models, and it works well.

u/Hola-Mateo · 1 pointr/GrassHopperVape

Real talk... I had a similar problem, and on a whim tried some generic Sticky Tack!

Wrap it around the very tip, press slightly to seal. Booom! Easy, resuable, rolls into a ball the size of a penny, doesn't leave a residue, and has no problem taking the heat!

I’ve owned my AirPods for almost 2 months and never had to clean them. I just clean my ears a lot more now and I don’t workout with mine. All of my wired EarPods would get clogged but I would just buy new ones. AirPods are too expensive too do that though so I just make sure my ears are clean.

u/BennuRa · 1 pointr/oculus

On the VR lens lab adapters... I'm using poster putty to keep them in place. Works great for me and cheaper than printing a new adapter and getting new lenses.

FWIW, I really wish the Rift had been made more friendly to glasses - either with an optional "facial interface" or some mounting posts attached to the lens assembly. I don't blame VR Lens lab - there's just nothing in there to attach anything or corners for a friction fit.

u/e60deluxe · 1 pointr/hometheater

you are only supposed to use one per speaker so maybe your looking at the wrong holes, if they are too close together?

also, that mount is only meant for specific speakers, the majority of bookshelf speakers have no mounting holes and are meant to just sit atop the stands.

some people use fun tak to secure the speakers:

u/Kamakazie · 1 pointr/bloodbowl

I use a little ball of blue tack-type stuff.

It holds the mini well and comes off clean. And it's reusable as long as you don't somehow get the stuff dirty. I got the idea from a Learn to Paint Kit that suggested using bottle caps or pill bottles to keep your hands off the mini.

u/fxakira · 1 pointr/Gunpla

You can use Blue Tack adhesive like these and put a small amount in the peg hole of the weapon to increase adhesion (I believe your MG ARF Kai has trouble holding the huge tactical arms sword?)

Per the Gundam manga series, the ideal enemy suit is the Amatsu Mina. Although I am currently having some problems finding this 1/100 NG from back in the day... Otherwise, the Blue Frame D is a fantastic choice as an antagonist suit.

This is the stuff you want for masking with putty. I've tried other kinds and had problems with them leaving an oily residue, but never had that problem with Blu-Tack.

How did you airbrush the Vallejo chipping medium? I have some of that stuff and hate it hate it hate it. Like you said, it doesn't brush well. I've tried thinning it with all sorts of stuff and spraying it, or spraying it neat, high pressure, low pressure...whatever.

I have 2 (three if you count our collective "work tank") and they do rattle. Worse with the lid on it. I think it's the lid that's the worst part. But i wouldn't say it's a significant amount. I sleep with my head 4 feet from my bedroom tank.

After a few weeks, a little gunk builds up and and that can really help quiet down the lid.
Try something like a few balls of blu-tack. It could really help silence a loud rattle. If it's still noisy, even without the lid, maybe try pulling out the little grey impeller guard and re-seating the impeller. But if it's just the lid rattling, you can quiet that down.

u/enowapi-_ · 1 pointr/airpods

I suggest some putty and use it to grab and pull wax, dirt and grime OUT of the AirPods instead of "jamming" it down in there.

u/eNonsense · 1 pointr/boardgames

I got here late, but one of the handiest accessories that I've picked up for board gaming recently is some blu tack.

If you've never used it, it's basically a removable sticky putty which doesn't leave a residue or stick so strongly that items will be damaged. It's great for temporarily sticking things down. You can use it for sticking down folded boards so they lay flat. You can also use it for sticking down small boards which are light or slightly warped and move or spin easily. You can also stick cards to boards, if it's something that will stay there the whole game and interaction with the card (taking pieces on & off) will cause it to move around.

u/Blue2501 · 1 pointr/EliteDangerous

Blu-tack in a few places on the bottom of the base will stick it to a desk nicely, and shouldn't leave any permanent marks on the desk or the stick.

u/Aranshada · 1 pointr/MouseReview

Paracord + bungee is the best. You want to find a bungee that has some weight to it (or you can just tape some additional weights, maybe some of those useless G502 weights) and a good solid base. I use a Zowie Camade, and it's actually the best bungee I've used although pretty overpriced for what it is. The Roccat Apuri is also nice, but it has USB hub functionality that lots of people won't need and won't be able to justify the price.

Worse bungee I ever used was the Razer one. No stability, no weight, just kept flopping around and sliding.

Some people just take some Blu-Tack and stick the cable to the monitor bezel. Basically has the same result.

I haven't used those so can't say. They do look 'fiddly' to me.

Why would you want to ban these

Thing is, your bulk container will invariably be smaller than the bag the lentils or rice or beans came in. So now you end up with beans in 3 containers, a small one, a bulk one, and original packaging.

Instead secure the original packaging using large binder clips like this one

Not ideal, but you can get by with Binder clips. They give you a flat base to stand the pawns on and are removable. Downside is you'd either need to remove the arms or accept having the art partly covered.

I suppose you could remove the packaging between the shades (after removing them). Then gluing down or using magnetic stickers. I think it would make a beautiful custom palette.

You could use these:

10 Adhesive Magnetic Sheets - 8.5" x 11" - 20 mil Magnet - Peel & Stick

u/JBShaw12 · 1 pointr/Steelbooks

That's no problem. They also make thin magnetic sheets so you can just place them on the wall, this is how im planning on hanging them. Here's the link on amazon if interested.

u/JakeTheTall · 1 pointr/boltaction

So far I've had luck with using squares I've cut from Adhesive Magnetized Sheets to hold plastic infantry to my metal-bottomed toolkit. I add a spot of white glue to help out the magnetic sheet adhesive.

3M Dual Lock Reclosable Fastener TB4575, Black, 1 in x 10 ft

u/Panasonicy0uth · 1 pointr/battlestations

It's expensive, but this 3M low-profile velcro is awesome and what I've used for everything from cable management on my desks throughout the years to fastening bulky guitar pedals (think around size and weight of a GTX1080) to my pedalboard that went through hell. TL;DR it's good.

I have two cars and three 'projects'.

One underhood project:

  1. Electronically-switched oil accumulator (accusump). Just ignition-hot.
  2. Subtle under-hood lighting (no rice - subtle - will be playing around with it. Might decide it looks like shit, and not do it.) Might also install a switchable work light in case something needs to be done at night.
  3. My own version of a lojack that I haven't gotten around to building. Also, if possible, have it control a secondary fuel pump relay to make the fuel pump die; basically an interlock that makes the car seem broken instead of locked.

    Two under-dash projects that are identical, one for each car:

  4. Hard-wired radar detector
  5. Hard-wired dash cam
  6. Hard-wired USB outputs - one or two dual-12v-to-USB converters
  7. Potentially the lojack-equivalent's battery charger (since it would have a separate small battery)

    The hard part is figuring out where to get a non-fused 12V supply under the dash. An add-a-fuse circuit is very appealing and I should find places where an extra 5-10A won't pop anything, so I may end up doing one 5-10A-add-a-fuse on an ignition-hot line, instead of a 12v-master-fuse + ignition-hot-relay, as the single master fuse for all these.

    Then it would just be a 15A strip terminal instead of a big fat 100A ground bar at the ground side, and a small fuse box at the positive side (with 1A or 2A fuses for each circuit, depending on their needs).


    I really appreciate your feedback. The only reason I haven't already built all this is because of worries of fucking up and coming back to a smoldering ash heap.


    I'm also figuring out how to mount all this securely under the hood... I figure these little wire clamps for the wires, and something like this velcro alternative to mount things like the fuse box, except it's hard to tell what temperature they're rated for (and it seems that the 3M stuff I linked will fall off due to heat.) Any ideas there? I want something that is 1) secure as fuck, but 2) that I could potentially remove without damage in the future, maybe using a heat gun or something. I would be mounting it mostly to plastic, but I don't want to drill any holes if possible.
u/Aklidien · 1 pointr/personalfinance

If you do decide to get it, I just have two suggestions for setting everything up:

  1. The double sided tape they send for the back camera is okay, but mine fell off after a few months. I replaced it with 15lb double sided tape (link), and it had been perfect ever since. I'd recommend doing the same.

  2. The cord for the back camera is super long, so I'd check on YouTube for examples of how to get it to the back of the car. I wound mine through the "holding bars" on the roof of the car.

    Anyway, have a great start to your 2017! :D
u/EvilGreenDevil · 1 pointr/Multicopter

This works very well - Scotch double sided mounting tape

u/romario77 · 1 pointr/Homebrewing
  1. I had different types of lines, apparently they are very smooth, so mine were 12ft each.
  2. Exactly what I have, works fine.
  3. Temp depends on what you do - some English ales are supposed to be at a little higher temp, while lagers are usually at lower. I set mine at 35 personally. When I was cold crashing I set it at 32 and froze my beer :)

  4. I didn't do any insulation - seems to be fine, it doesn't turn on too often. I might do insulation at some point but so far it's fine, I think wood is a pretty good insulator.

  5. I haven't found the fan for mine yet, need to do it to avoid freezing again. I was looking for 110v ones.

  6. Just be aware that you'll be lifting 5 gallon kegs over there and the collar (and it's usually crowded and there is a bunch of lines too).

  7. I got this one: . It's fine size-wise, but I would probably get one an inch wider, it drips at the end of the tray. I attached it with this: . It's a glue tape that holds it really well, I can put a full mug there and it still holds.

    I would also recommend to buy this:

    fruit flies tend to get into the faucets and then you'll get one in the first glass of beer that you have.
u/exonerate-me · 1 pointr/homelab

I know this isn't the most professional and probably not the most popular but I use this tape to mount all my SSDs into 3.5" bays. I've been doing it for years without any problems whatsoever. It doesn't affect the appearance either

u/AnotherAvgRedditor · 1 pointr/DIY

Is this one good?

u/erleichda_archiving · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

Gorilla Tough & Clear Mounting Tape, Double-Sided, 1" x 60", Clear or many other double sided tapes on the market.

I think that gorilla stuff could support a engine block on a wall, so you might only need the lighter kind. Go to local hardware store, you will see lots of options.

u/Bfeezey · 1 pointr/Hue

This is the stuff holding my light strip to the back of my tv after the tape that came on the strips failed.

Make sure you put it where you want it, it's not coming off after that.

u/hargabyte · 1 pointr/Vive

You might want to give this stuff a try.

Im going to buy some for when I setup the lighthouses at work. We are in a brick building so im hoping it will stick well to the brick. It says it does...

u/americangame · 1 pointr/Hue

Here's the exact stuff I used. It's about twice as thick as the lightstrip but it's much better than any foam tape I've tried.

u/McFlyco9 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

u/TKhrowawaY · 1 pointr/Dakimakuras


They have teeth so when removing them you want to be careful, so as to not tear off threads. I was a bit careless with adjusting one of the clips and it loosened a thread.

The clips are mounted to my wall with and mounting putty.

u/zapatodefuego · 1 pointr/chefknives

Gorilla is just a brand, like this:

Most of their products really are quite good though.

u/Scottydbeatbox · 1 pointr/headphones

Alright, so I got double sided gorilla tape

Man, I don't know how this stuff works so good, but it is no joke. when you handle it yourself, you're gonna be skeptical that it has any significant grip at all, but you just need to apply some pressure between the surfaces and its on there for good.

u/mrcaptncrunch · 1 pointr/ikeahacks

I don't have that table. I use a 5 foot long plastic table^1 and I attached a surge protector to it with this Gorilla double sided tape ...maybe it's 6ft?

I put tape on the back, covering the whole length of the back so the weight is distributed throughout.

u/RangerSkyy · 1 pointr/cbradio

This stuff is amazing. I have a radio and 2 small computer speakers mounted to the underside of a shelf on my radio desk. It peels off clean too! Been up there for 5+ years now. Give it a shot!

u/drewfromOG · 1 pointr/macsetups

Would you be able to mount your surge protector under the top of your desk with something like this? And route your wires through the hole in your desk for a cleaner look.

u/kederan · 1 pointr/FinalMouse

Wilson Advantage Tennis Racquet Over Grip . The grip won't stay on by itself so you will need double sided adhesive of some sort. On this mouse I went with Gorilla double sized tape. The double sided gorilla tape is pretty thick. use Duck Brand Double-Sided Duct Tape if you wanted the thinnest possible tape with insane grip.

u/710LOL · 1 pointr/BassCanyon

I feel like this is an upside, usually a pain breaking the clasp.

You can go to will call and they probably would give you a replacement for a price.
Or you can buy a replacement like this :

u/pabloelpaco · 1 pointr/aves

Amazon has Festival Clips, I’m sure there are different styles and colors, if you can’t get those attached.

u/MeatAndBourbon · 0 pointsr/Vive

What 3m tape did you use? 3m makes a huge variety of different thickness and stickiness.

I would bet money you weren't using the 4011 kind. This stuff:

Use appropriate tape and you should be fine.

u/syx · 0 pointsr/AskReddit

Sticky tack holds your shit up way better than tape and unless your on an uneven surface comes right off (I use command strips if its on something im afraid it won't come off cleanly)

u/KerNil · -1 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Hmm. I wasn't planning on gluing the mirror to the shower wall. I want the mirror to be able to be removed, without leaving any marks.

Is there an adhesive you recommend, that can be removed from the cultured marble panel, if/when the mirror gets taken down?

I was thinking that I might be able to screw a support block into the drywall that is located above the panel, so that I do not have to drill a hole in the cultured marble. Here's a rough image of what I'm thinking of doing.

Or, I could screw two hooks into the above drywall, drill two holes in the top of the mirror frame, and have the mirror hang by chain. I'd maybe caulk a bit of the mirror to the panel, to keep the mirror from swaying back and forth .

I am also considering waterproof-rated, heavy-duty, double-sided tape (something like this product), but I'm not sure if that will hold up.

u/Jilltro · -1 pointsr/ElectricForest

You could break off that part and use a wristband clip to keep it on your wrist.
