    Didn't take pictures but 20 years ago I accidentally did something like this.

      that's an easy fix, cut 1.5" off the excessive flange and mount it in closed position st. visually things are lined up but the drawer opens.

      What were the worst frickups youve had?

      didn't PrepHole but the floor guy insisted we didn't need to move our stove- the dishwasher, fridge and everything else was out because we were moving in. I assumed he tipped it or pulled the lower drawer, nope. next thing we replace it and had 4" of unfinished floor.

      Did the same, added a 2" piece and painted it same color, you can still tell if you look for it, the wood texture is off.

    When I was like 14 I built a small sailing dinghy from a raw fiberglass hull and had to glass in seats and flotation and the centerboard trunk and all that...I was doing it in a real boatyard fiberglass shop so all the resin and hardener was in bulk, 55 gal drum of polyester resin and there was a gallon bottle of MEKP catalyst with a pump like a ketchup bottle at the ballpark hot dog stand.

    Of course I never followed any sensible mix ratios and regularly mixed batches so hot they would smoke in the pot...but one day I went every further overboard than usual, and even after applying the glass/ resin in the hull it was smoking like crazy... it was an especially thick layup in the bottom of the hull and it got hot AF, hot enough to feel it just standing next to the boat. I got scared I was going to set the place on fire so I ran and got a giant bucket of water and doused all the fresh resin to cool it off before it ignited.

    There was no fire but afterwards I had to spend hours stripping out gobs of gooey mat and uncured resin and wipe everything down with acetone to get back to where I started, along with sanding off the stuff that actually did cure.

                that defeats the purpose of having trips at all newbie, which is they exist so OP's can identify themselves

              • 2 months ago
                Anonymous

                Nah it makes sense. Trips can be handy for a thread to ID an op throughout the thread for updates so that other anons can’t be like “op here, I’m gay” or whatever. But once the thread dies the trip is no longer needed. Anyone using a trip longer than that or across threads is doing it purely for vanity, to try and become a PrepHole eceleb. They want people to take notice of them and something that a lot of people don’t understand is that they don’t care about what kind of attention they get as long as they get attention. So when they shit up boards constantly and get replies with people just calling them a dumb homosexual that fuels them to keep going because unlike in their sad pathetic irl existence people actually pay attention to them here, even if it’s just mostly to spew vitriol. Theyll do mental gymnastics and point to the handful of replies where people just are civil to them and the 1 or 2 where someone actually defended them or said thanks and spin that somehow to be that the board actually loves them. Many such cases on forums, discussion boards, usenet, etc. but even if you take away their trips they’ll still post in ways that make it obvious who they are, the more obnoxious ones will straight up sign their posts, the (slightly) less obnoxious ones will just constantly reference shit they always drone about. Only way to stop them is to ignore them but way too many morons on the internet that will feed into their bullshit so they are a permanent fixture.

        Bepis/Kevin Van Dam uses at least 2 different trips, and has been using only name with no trip recently.
        He has never tried to hide it
        He pretty much confirmed it was him when he responded to the Disney picture from his Facebook.

        If you want more confirmation here is a recently resurfaced post where he literally posted his face on PrepHole

                The PrepHole ones might be more interesting, I let Anon borrow one of my lures and he got it snagged on an alligator, and one of the people I met up with was actually a grill who wasn’t bad lookin and I taught her how to fish. She had a BF at the time, I think they broke up and she went back to NY for a minute, and then she came back down like a year or two later and hit me up to “go fishin”, but I had been dating the future wife at that point so we didn’t “go fishin” after that. She was cool.

            Yes. Somebody posted that stuff because it’s public record when you own a home and aren’t in your mom’s basement.

            The original frickup was me posting something with my name on it. But not like it’s a big deal, I have mailed shit with my return address to half of PrepHole in the past and I’m not a neckbeard basement dweller so if somebody sees a FB profile pic of me and my spicy Latina wife, I might survive it.

              I'm more embarrassed about how my house has a dozen half-finished projects. I have almost no free time to do house projects because both I and my wife work and we have a toddler and I'm wiped out by the time the kid's in bed. Maybe next year.

      What's the lesson learnt here? Is it "don't do it" or is there some way you're supposed to do it?
      I'm in a similar situation where I have some yellow-tongue flooring that's uneven at parts. I was just going to sand the bits where it's uneven and either floorboard or carpet over it.

    Didn't do it myself, but when I was selling windows for a home improvement chain had a shocking number of cases where people just could not grasp the concept of 'rough opening size' for windows. Which was why the contract had to be signed in three places, with two of them stating that you had read through and understood brochures about proper sizing and had validated it against your building design. That and folks who would place orders in HxW when the industry uses WxH. And they would get mad at you if you saw unusual window shapes being ordered and tried to get them to confirm the dimensions.

    I had a beautiful bare concrete wall that I painted white. I'm going to try to mix some random grey tones and see if I can recreate a concrete look again with a sponge as a paint tool. Something like pic related would be good

      > that I painted white.
      First mistake was not adding a shot of black. It lets them know you are a pro.

        Guys DO NOT DO THIS

        I was redoing the spare bedroom, and I asked here for advice. Mostly about surface prep & the shinyness of the paint. Ended up getting satin for the walls & semi-gloss for the trim.

        White, of course.
        But because someone here mentioned it, I asked the guy at Menards to put in a shot of black.

        "Oh, you want grey paint?"
        "No it's gonna be white. With depth."

        So he put it in, shook it up. And it looked okay in the can. Two gallons for the walls, one for the trim.
        But when I got back & started painting it on, it's obviously grey.

        So I took it back to the store, couldn't return the shit, because it was a "custom color". Had to buy three more gallons. It's like $40/gallon. Not funny.

          I just realized I forgot what a gallon of paint even costs because I give the wife my credit card and tell her to go pick out whatever she likes.

          I doubt she knew to ask for a shot of black but it looks pretty good without it. Not quite the pro touch tho.

    >own pic related, an air purifier
    >have it in my room to get rid of bad smells
    >it has this cool feature where it can automatically sense bad/dangerous odors and increase its fan speed to suck it in quicker, and it's light changes from blue (normal), to yellow (bad), to red (worst)
    >this sensor applies to farts as i would soon notice
    >for a quick laugh for myself, when i have to fart i do it right on top of it so the stinky fart is never smelled, and this always causes the air purifier to go in to the red fan speed mode for a couple minutes
    >this becomes a norm for me over a joke, even pull down my pants and underwear to assure the fart does not touch my clothing
    >this one time i had one of those unsure bowel movements, unsure if its just a fart or need to take a small shit
    >whatever, go to the air purifier to do the usual
    >fart comes out, but also some watery shit
    >air purifier now covered in little bits of wet shit
    >clean it up with disinfectant wipes
    >to my horror I realize more shit traveled in between its main vents and deep inside it where I cant reach
    >have to open it
    >figured all i had to do was remove the filters to clean out the shit, but I have to completely disassemble it, and unplug a bunch of things inside to get to the main chamber
    >broke several tabs on it
    >stripped some screws
    >finally get to the shit, wipe it off and sanitize it
    >2 hours later after reassembling it i manage to get it running
    >the fan now rattles, the top fan setting is now on steroids, and theres several broken plastic bits i broke i hear rattling inside
    >out of shame i retire it to be used in my garage only now
    >cant even buy the same one again because it doesnt meet some sort of California regulation
    >the replacement i bought doesnt even sense my farts despite having similar tech

    im sorry

    I turned 20(this was back on 2005) and saw a great deal on a used Sony Walkman cell phone that slides up to use(instead of a flip or candy bar phone). These were rare in my area and kind of a status symbol since no carriers offered them on contracts. Only problem was the outer shell was pretty scratched up, but it's ok since I only had to pay $250 for it instead of like $600+ new. But that's ok, cause replacement shells can be bought on eBay for like $40. I used the phone as is for a couple weeks while I waited for the replacement to arrive, and got it all set up with a cool custom theme and personalized ringtones(sounds silly, but back then doing that shit was painful since you needed custom PC software and the interface to everything was a nightmare). When I got the parts in the mail, I botched the reassembly (tore the LCD screen cable) and lost some screws.
    Was so irritated and pissed off I just threw it all out and went back to using the shitty flip phone that came with a prepaid voucher.

    If that 715w could still connect to the towers, I'd prob rebuy it as maybe a detox phone, or just to admire. But in 2024 it's useless, and I'm sure all the batteries for it have bloated or stopped holding a charge long ago.

    Asking a question before fricking up a DIY. Are wood countertops a thing? And if they are, would trying this liquid wood over my granite counter tops be moronic? I have builder grade cheap shit that I don't like the look up. Or would I just be better off contracting someone to install quartz.

      Just pour liquid wood on it.

    Lol from the picture. Reminds me of the first time I installed hardwood flooring.
    I installed without think about how much I would need and didn't have enough. Also, you have to have at least 18 inches between joints on adjacent floor boards to make sure the structural strength is enough for the floor not to warp over time and stay flat.

    converted a 12V NiCAD drill battery to use 18650 cells with BMS board and everything.
    Worked great, looked great.
    Went to charge it in the original charger.
    Assumed the charger for 12V battery outputs 12V for charging.
    NOPE it was like 48V.
    18650 cells cooked, probably BMS board dead too.
