Anybody here play the stock market? Tell us about your strategies, companies you think are about to do really good or really bad, your opinion on shorting stocks, anything stock related! I havent invested any real money yet but i play facebook fantasy stock exchange and I invested all my 10 million dollars which they give you into Ford Motor company when the prices were 1.92 per stock. The stocks are now 3.36 and im waiting for this bailout to get approved... but so far if i sold all of my stock i would make a 6million dollar profit which is pretty good for a first timer i guess.

How thick is the stock of a thompson submachine gun? Answered

Hello guys, My question is how thick is the stock? Length I got figured out the only thing I don't know is the  thickness of the stock. Some sources suggest that it is 35mm, 50mm or 70mm thick. I seriously have no idea although 70mm seems a little bit to thick. I need to know it for a presentation but no site seems to carry the information... So I'm hoping somebody who owns one can give me the information or otherwise someone with other WW2 weapons as it seems that pretty much all the stocks look evenly thick...

to make peoples faces from stockings?

They use to call them porch people. They were made of woman's stocking. They were stuffed with fiber fill to make the head and would then sew eyes,nose and mouth on them there hands and feet were also made of stockings. Then they would dress them up and they really looked like people. They were very popular in the 80's. In Clinton N.J. And whoever made them, would charge about 250.00. they would call them porch people. Does anyone know how they were made?

Which online trading site should I use? ETrade or TDAmeritrade?

I am a novice investor and I need to make a little more cash  (day job isn't paying all the bills). I would like to not have to use a paypal account. I have chosen these two to choose from because they are reliable,reputable and they are in my price range. I am leaning more towards etrade but tdameritrade has the immediate option of adding your routing number to your checking account. Anyways I just want to see if anyone here uses either and which one is the best for basic stock trading and money making? Also if you have better ideas for me to make a little money online please let me know because I'm just a bit desperate for cash right now. Thank you AB

Last minute no-talent Christmas stocking ideas?

Can't find our Christmas stockings! (We moved) Tomorrow I'm heading out to try to find red and white felt and a glue gun. I don't have a sewing machine or time to learn to knit or crochet. I need to make 4 of them, and they need to be super easy and not take special equipment or a lot of time. So I'm thinking I'll just cut out 8 stocking shapes and glue them together and glue some white trim along the top. And if I get real creative, maybe write the names in glitter glue. I am well aware that this is pretty cheesy, but it's all I've been able to think of. I hope one of you will have a better idea. I don't want to spend a lot of money because I'm convinced the originals will turn up before next year. Any better ideas than glued felt? Thanks.

Rings of Light: Bending u-channel stock

Hello! I'm trying to make rings of brass with a channel/groove on the inside to fit LED strips into. I want the LEDs lining the inside of the brass rings to illuminate the center, but I want them hidden from view for aesthetic reasons. I'm trying to get 7 different rings, varying in diameter from about 7" to 2'. I can't figure out the best way to do this though. Here are some possibilities I've come up with, and I would love your thoughts on their feasibility, how I might tweak them for better effectiveness, or if you all have other ideas that might work better! 1) Bend U-channel stock in a tube bender. Would this deform the u-channel, though, and can rectangular stock go through a bender? 2) Mill a small trench shallower than a standard u-channel into bar stock, then bend it. See concerns in #1. 3) Somehow mill a channel into bar stock once it's already bent..? 4) Bend hollow tubing into a ring, then use a cutting disc or bit on a dremel to cut an opening on the inside, and snake the LED strip through the tubing. 5) Bend hollow tubing into a ring, then drill out holes at the interval of the LED lights, and snake the LED strip through the tubing. Thanks so much for your thoughts, feedback and help! :)

Metal rod stock for furniture (especially loops)

I wanted to make some shelves like this but I have no idea which metal they used or how to bend it. Is there anything strong enough to support even some books that can be bent with pliers? If so, wouldn't it be really hard to get anything good looking? If not, how to bend? I know there are shop brakes, but aren't they only for sheet metal? And, surely you cannot make a 180 turn that small with a shop brake? Also, what gauge/material rodstock to use? Is there some way (even approximate) to relate gauge and material to weight supported?  Many thanks in advance Joe

Which firberglass and resin should I use for a custom paintball stock? Answered

I obviously need this thing to be strong enough to take some punishment since it will be used in paintball games, but I have never fiberglassed anything before, and I'm clueless as to what kind of sheet/cloth to use and if the resin I use will melt the foam core. Any help is definitely welcomed.

The trigger block in the barrel works like the way Pooplord's Lever action pistol does. It requires no cut pieces although, my one has some on it. The mag is removable but its a little bit hard to do so.  I might post it, might not. Sorry for the bad(ish) picture but I was using my phone. Adiós Amigos.
