  1. Zero: I'll keep that in mind. D12: Ahh. 316 came up a lot in my search but I didn't realize TRL used it. Damnation: More cool factor is welcome Moon: I don't actually have a tank of my own, but I'll put them in the bath tub or something. I'll definitely try to get pics if I can get them to float... Notmykl: Hopefully future generations will be able to. Brimley: Ya... that would suck. Ammonia? Rubbing alcohol? Bleach? I may end up using rubber rings too, so I don't want to melt them.

    Half Persian, sheet forms and comment about bras

    You didn't screw it up. Sheet 5 rolls up on its own, but its usually fine if its hanging against something. That might depend though. Like, if its bearing weight, it can force itself to curl, or sometimes it just has a mind of its own. I think sheet 6 is harder to make, but 5 is more "unstable" even when its finished. 6 also makes weird uneven triangles where 5 doesn't Below are emblems (superman style) for a shirt I was making. The top piece was the original in HP3-6, which hung lop-sided and looked ridiculous, (it can make nice parallelograms though, if you try to make a square) and I really like the how it bends and feels, but it didn't work for my application. If you're making a bra, I think sheet 6 would work well if you can design it with the weaves shape in mind (the slant). The one below it is HP3-5, and the bottom of the triangle is centered!!! But I continued it up and over as the shoulder straps and the weight of the shirt hanging on it made it buckle and twist like crazy. I ended up scrapping both and going with the shirts euro weave. I'm not usually into the weirder weaves but if you can get hp4 to behave, and have a large enough AR you might be able to make HP4 sheet 7 >_> but I don't think that would help at all. and sheet 5 is already low. I'm not sure if sheet 5 is possible... cause that would be HP2... Good luck with that! The pic uses 16ga 5/16"

    jump ring opener/closer tool thingy ring

    I tried one for a little bit. What everyone's saying is true; tidy closures kinda suck. I didn't get blisters, like from the pressure and rub of pliers. Instead I got dents where the tool twisted into my finger. Then again, I was mostly using 16g 5/16" BA. I never got a change to test it on thinner gauge rings. A friend of mine thought it looked pretty cool so I gave it to her as a fashionable ring, not a tool They might be good for a plane or something, where it would be sketchy to pull out pliers and you're working with dead soft or small rings to pass the time, but I don't think I'd ever use them for something I was planning on selling. Did you guys use one ring with one plier? or one on each finger?

    Marble Dodecahedron

    20 caged marbles. 5 colors of marble, and each of the 12 sides has all 5 colors. It was actually harder than expected to not have any side with two of the same color... It won't be useful as a 12-sided die until I find a good way to fit D12s in the open sides. But, it's still very beautiful all on it's own, no?
