OCONUS: How can i get a lawyer to help me with my case? by FrustratedAMN in AirForce

[–]Dimsdale53 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's pretty fucked up then. Depending on what it is, there might not really be anything you can fight, sometimes you did the crime, so you take your licks and move on. But they should at a minimum help you with the response because that shit will really matter if you get in trouble again or the CC pushes for an admin sep.

So a reason for the new rules was to clean up the subreddit to draw in AMAs. by laguna_matata in woodworking

[–]Dimsdale53 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I became a mod right before the new rules were announced. I guess I missed the point on AMA's. Mostly I've just been trying to delete shitposts and enforce the rules. I like the idea of getting more AMA's, are there any specific woodworkers of industry professionals you'd like to see?

Help with a very difficult situation. by throwawayafdepressco in AirForce

[–]Dimsdale53 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Mental health, involve the shirt and CC if need be. Sounds like a case for inpatient care. I've had a few people in this type of situation. Mental health can do great things, but not if the person kills themselves before treatment can help.

I'll play your game, but you can PM me. I'm not the one who needs the info.

The start of the first attempt to not use pocket screws. Wish me luck! by hawaiikawika in woodworking

[–]Dimsdale53 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Good for you! There's nothing wrong with pocket screws in many applications, but I think we should strive to be better and you look like you're on that path. Bravo.

What do you actually need and who is prosecuting/accusing you? If you're looking to fight an LOC, the ADC isn't going to put a ton of effort in it, because in the grand scheme of things, an LOC ain't shit. If your commander had levied charges against you, the ADC will be doing a lot.

Any Kinks fans in the room? by Ralt_ in pinkfloyd

[–]Dimsdale53 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think I got it used for $100. It is available on iTunes though if you just want to give it a listen.

Love the Kinks. Personal favorite will always be Lola versus Powerman and the Moneygoaround), and Village Green Preservation Society.

I'm fairly sure the version on "A Collection of Great Dance Songs" has the nine part version on it.

Does mineral oil need to be reapplied if it's just as a dye/light protection? by DuchessOfNull in woodworking

[–]Dimsdale53 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I can't imagine why you'd want to use mineral oil for this. I'd use Watco Danish Oil or similar for what you're doing.

The State of Affairs Regarding r/PinkFloyd by shearhartattack in pinkfloyd

[–]Dimsdale53 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm a mod on r/woodworking and that's a huge sub compared to this. If you want some help let me know. I live in Japan so I tend to be on reddit when most other of Europe/America isn't.

What can make me Non-Deployable? by somethingrealystupid in AirForce

It’s so the doctors can see how your body reacts. Problems don’t always surface immediately.

Stumbled upon 2 marines fighting today, what would you have done? by M_Raptastic in AirForce

[–]Dimsdale53 46 points47 points  (0 children)

2 Marines? Let em fight it out, theirs is an entirely different world.

Put on the stripe or wait? by [deleted] in AirForce

[–]Dimsdale53 11 points12 points  (0 children)

The only downside is that waivered SSgts are pretty rare so you'll almost certainly be the only SSgt in ALS. So you'll be the class leader.

I would guess yes, most likely. I’ve seen people test a month out and be included.

Can I be on Accutane? by ImOnDisplay in AirForce

[–]Dimsdale53 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Obviously your PCM is the person to ask, but I can say I did supervise a crew chief on accutane back in the day. IIRC she had to stay on mids to minimize sun exposure which apparently helped with the treatment. I might be getting that mixed up with the laser face peel she got; she had horrible skin and was getting fairly serious medical treatment for it.

Non-Recommendation letter for BTZ by whosdickmydick in AirForce

[–]Dimsdale53 6 points7 points  (0 children)

If you're getting a letter to non-rec, then that's just something your commander does, probably out of decency. When a BTZ window is coming up, the FSS sends a roster to the shirts, who send it out to the work centers with the airmen. Someone like me (unless the shirt already did it) does a quality force review to see if any of them are immediately disqualified. PT fail, LOR, LOC (depending on what for), issues with finishing upgrade training, etc... would all be immediate non-starters. This is usually about 25% of eligible airmen. You might have fell within one of those categories which is why the non-rec. Competing for BTZ isn't a right. No one has to be given SrA early.

Advice on live edge table by TrapperMAT in woodworking

[–]Dimsdale53 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So someone sold you a table that was made from lumber that hadn't been properly dried. Filler won't prevent it from spreading, it will just fill a gap and probably look crappy. Traditionally you'd use something like a butterfly to hold the crack from spreading further. Pictures would help and what is your skill level? If the goal is to prevent it from spreading, I'd recommend looking at installing some sort of beef-up from the underside. If you want it to appear like there isn't a crack, and not look like shit it is going to get complicated.

That's awesome and thank you for posting such a good build album.

how to remedy? original caster kit 4 table saw hits legs when swiveled :( by synapsesynopsis in woodworking

[–]Dimsdale53 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Wow, that is a badly designed system. I think your best bet would be to take an angle grinder to those cast brackets and notch out the small bit that the wheels are hitting on. Since they look like auxiliary feet it shouldn't really matter when the saw is on the ground, and that portion shouldn't be under any strain when the saw is on the wheels.

I made a weird table out of a shattered cockpit window by Dimsdale53 in woodworking

[–]Dimsdale53[S] 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Yeah, it shattered after it was removed. Actually it shattered after 5 hours in a chest freezer and a kiss from a sledge hammer. It wouldn't break unless frozen. I hit it 4-5 times. The reason it was removed from the jet was delamination. Let's call it an experiment. I've since figured out easier and safer ways of shattering impact resistant tempered glass.
