Re: "In the world of spuds today"

Purchasing my own property has definitely opened the flood gates :D While you're here, what style of milling vise would you recommend? Is a tilting swiveling vise like this actually useful or am I OK with something more basic for now? I've always mostly used the latter for the Sherline and hardly ev...

Re: "In the world of spuds today"

Thanks Al! Nice acquisitions, and quite a big step up from the Sherline. It is! At first I was just going to move the Sherline from work to home. I realized however that even though I now have access to the great outdoors, I still hadn't moved away from the "pen gun mentality" so to speak and the Sh...

Re: "In the world of spuds today"

After a lot of woodwork, some nylon straps, a jeep and a little help from my friends, finally got 700 lbs of new tools into my new basement!

Still a lot of tooling to buy but the heaviest stuff is sorted :D

Re: Reputation system and the new layout

Thank you for the detailed riposte! What's the problem with never changing? Well... the old ranking system was designed when SpudFiles was WAY smaller. JSR having over 25k posts was never a concept. Most of the ranks stopped progressing after 5000 posts on the old SpudFiles, which numerous members a...

Reputation system and the new layout

One of the things that seems to have been lost with the redesign is the previous reputation system, forum ranking is now based on post count. I see we now have a "thanking" system but it seems a shame that the previous thumbs up/thumbs down ranks are lost and it has been reset to zero. Stalin would ...

Re: I see we have a new skin …

Overall it looks good, nice to see that everything now loads properly over TLS, and the new skin is far more aesthetically pleasing than the ~2013 iteration, which made the site look like a shitty nerf gun forum from 2003. This may sound harsh, but with that abomination in the scrapheap where it be...

Re: I see we have a new skin …



we do!

Some valid comments, particularly regarded the "wasted" space, but to me that seems to be an improvement over the past.

I wonder what happens when we embed large images...
