I picked up this dog one at Office Depot. As well as this ninja Post-It dispenser.

Tax-Free Weekend was a good day.

No idea if this is a good price or not, and no idea which is the original manufacturer and which are copies, but all of the devices that look like this on amazon are around $300.

u/alaricus · 12 pointsr/DesignPorn

This is the normal design in North America. A little less interesting than this two armed job.

Like some people, even wearing the rift with the triangle as far down as I can manage, there's a firm pressure on my cheek bones that eventually turn into pain. Having a counterweight helps balances out the rift and prevent it from doing this. Also, since the extra weight is dangling off the back of the headset, it does not really add any weight pressure to your head, it just kinda keeps the rift balanced correctly.


Bill of Materials:
(you may want to grab the weights elsewhere as the price had gone up, it was $5 when I bought it)


Making it is pretty simple. First I laid down the handkerchief flat on the table. Then I peeled the adhesive cover and stacked the four weight bars two by two on the sheet with the bottom side up so that when I fold in the handkerchief, it will stick on to the bottom of the weights. I kept the folds together with some double sided tape and finished up with a velcro tie to be able to latch on to the rift to (3 is probably overkill btw, it should be perfect with 2).


BTW, the weights come in a set of 4 for 60gx4= 240g total which is perfect. I was dumb and bought 4 as I thought it only comes with one stick. As a a result, I have enough materials to make another 2 counterweights. If anyone wants one, I can ship them out for the cost of shipping (~$7 for small flat rate box within US).

u/ameoba · 3 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

You need to keep in mind that rolls of tape are produced on giant machines. Using round rolls really simplifies the process of producing it. Round rolls also fit on tape guns which are used in many commercial/industrial environments where they make heavy use of tape.

You can buy flat "rolls" of duct tape but they're somewhat of a specialty item.

u/IamMomsFavorite · 3 pointsr/lifehacks

I own two of these: This is precisely their purpose.

u/Belazriel · 3 pointsr/specializedtools

This Scotch Handband dispenser is amazing for wrapping gifts, but it's such a pain that it needs special (somewhat expensive) refills.

u/80spizzarat · 3 pointsr/Flipping

Most tape guns have a "safety mechanism" that retracts the teeth unless you pushed down on the flap that smooths the tape to the box. It might make them safer to handle, but it definitely makes them more annoying to use. Here's one without.

If tape noise bothers you, here's the low-noise version.

I prefer the tape guns without handles, so I splurged and bought the H192. It was worth the $40. For some reason Amazon won't give me the link directly to it, but it's on the same page as the H150.

u/caffeine_buzz · 3 pointsr/Flipping

I used to have this problem but then I bought a dispenser gun. No more sticking back on itself or any of the other aforementioned problems. Got this when it was on sale for $19 shipped. Took a little while to get used to - like taping it evenly down a straight line but that comes with practice. I still use duck brand tape. I paid $0.66 a roll for mine.

u/octopornopus · 2 pointsr/turning

Yeah, that caught my attention. At first, it's like "wow, seems kinda lazy". But if you were doing this sort of thing all day long, $178 doesn't seem too extravagant to make your life easier...

Poop tape. Everybody needs poop tape. My item!

u/kikikanderson · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

this is kind of odd... because in a past life I was an apparel designer and as of monday I'm a temp with a budget department. Instead of drawing all day I'm now looking at spreadsheets....but it would give me something pretty to look at, haha. I also am really happy to have any kind of job at the moment, though, so don't take this the wrong way. Really, truly grateful for the opportunity, and everyone there is super nice.

u/mike413 · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

If you are going to move, start your box search a MONTH in advance.

Liquor stores, grocery stores, Craigslist.

Use the phone if possible, then drive there immediately.

Mostly Craigslist was a hard one. Lots of false leads, crazy busy people who just just moved, people whose boxes are across town but you get there and most are gone.

If you need a lot of boxes, you're moving NOW and you have to buy them, go to Home Depot. They are the cheapest to buy boxes. Small boxes are 69 cents, and the largest sizes are still under $2. Wardrobe boxes are $9.97. Meanwhile u-haul is like $2-3 for a small box.

Wait. Looks like u-haul is cheap if you look online. Maybe take those prices with you if you go to u-haul, because that sure wasn't the price I saw when I went there.

If you're going to get a tape dispenser, the scotch brand moving and packing dispenser is the best. I tried many different kinds, and though it is simple, you can reel out the tape quickly and easily, never get hung up or cut and never lose the end and have to unstick it again. I just hold the dispenser in one hand, pull the tape out the length needed with the other and press against the seam.

I used to have this kind but the tape was always getting stuck. Mostly worked, but lots slower and it depends on the tape sticking. Also dangerous with kids.

u/ethanbrecke · 1 pointr/ProgrammerHumor

And tape holders like This. Always filled with sand.

u/RebootRevival · 1 pointr/gamecollecting

Why not just use a double sided tape like this one. Or look into bookbinding specifically regarding gluing the spine. There is PVA glue designed for stuff similar to this.

u/RazorLeafAttack · 1 pointr/Gameboy

Yeah I’d pick up some of this permanent double sided Scotch tape and trim it with a straight edge and any hobby knife. X-acto is my preference.

u/miichhhl · 1 pointr/MakeupAddictionCanada

Makeup organizers for SURE. There are some really great budget acrylic ones that I've found, and you can also get some file sorters like this one to help keep palettes organized!

Also, not really makeup related (although could be if you like to dress up your vanity!) but I thought these were super cute. A little on the pricey side but I tend to use gift cards on things that I wouldn't normally buy for myself either because of price or lack of necessity haha.

u/nxtreme · 1 pointr/thinkpad

Quality shouldn't be affected but the cover is there to protect the (relatively fragile) lens on the webcam, it'll scratch more easily than the cover would and the cover will be easier to clean than the lens would. I would say if you have it, fix it, easily done and it will make your new Thinkpad look even better. ;)

If you have one of those epoxies that dries hard (like JB Weld) I'd go with that, some epoxies or quick-cure glues can fog the plastic, which would really mess with the video quality. If you don't want to run the risk of using the wrong glue, you could test a small amount on the cover first, or find some really thin double-sided tape to reattach it (something like this Just cut a piece to fit in the gap, and very carefully cut out the circular patterns with a fine, sharp blade. If you do go with glue/epoxy, just don't put too much on otherwise it'll ooze out the sides and make a real mess (or even worse, get on the lens.

I think the butt station is a good balance of funny and practical.

u/2OQuestions · 1 pointr/lifehacks

I used to wrap gifts for a children's charity (all the stuff you donate in the stores, volunteers like me sorted and wrapped for 30 hours).

This item was vital when wrapping many items in a short time. I did learn that it's not advisable to save tape from year to year; then it's just more trouble than it's worth.

u/venrue · 1 pointr/osugame
u/Crowcifer · 1 pointr/askgaybros

I got it at Target. It's really not that useful since every single time you want to grab some tape, the darn thing wobbles. I suggest using his brother, the doge.

Here are some Amazon links.

Screwdriver or double-sided tape I find randomly useful. Also, erasable pens.

If you want to try and repair, you'll need some of this and some of this.

While a helper brings the pieces together to close the gap, cover the crack with the Flex Tape. Now, while still maintaining force to keep the crack closed, cut a piece of strap that will go on the outside of the bend and will reach both PVC flanges. Screw one strip on about an inch above that line on the PVC, using a screw for every other hole. Add a second strip one inch below.

Your helper is STILL applying pressure to keep the crack closed.

Cut another strip of metal, and wrap it around the elbow just next to the flange. Let it overlap 3"-4", then screw it in place. Cut another for the other flange.

That should be enough to hold everything in place.

Obviously, it would be FAR easier to replace the broken section. To do that, determine the diameter of the pipe and get 12"-18" of it (see if the hardware store has a scrap piece you can have for free). You'll need to buy two (2) of these, as you're going to have to cut the current elbow off, and that might not leave enough existing pipe left for the replacement elbow.

So, you'll end up gluing a hub to a small section (say 4") of pipe, and the other end of the pipe goes into the elbow. You'll make two (2) of these, once of each end of the elbow. You can prefit the parts before gluing them to see where you'll need to make cuts on the existing pipe. Make your cuts. Glue up the replacement elbow, small pipe sections and hubs, allow 30 minutes to set up. Apply glue to the ends of the existing pipe and the interior of both hubs, push them into place. Done.
