  1. @doze49 KAT is Kickass Torrents. It was my favourite until the U.S. illegally arrested the owner and took down the site I've moved to digbt for the time being.
    It was more than just torrents though.

    • Well I've managed to cut into sice, and in halves, the piece of wood for the saber's handle. Now comes the annoying part of digging a 3mm depression on the inner side of each in the exact shape of the blade, adding a few metal pieces for fastening, and then filing and grinding until it has an uniform and proper shape.

      • @zennx Oh, I'm using a border guard blade from the '70s that I got decently cheap and in great condition, mostly unadorned, as I intend to have this one as a serviceable saber. As such I'll just do a plain iron and bronze guard without any sort of inlay or relief. I have much fancier ones, but they're from the late 1800s so I don't want to damage them. I don't want anything fancy on it so I can easily repair any dent or damage.

      • @nerthos Oh, so you're restauring it, that's pretty neat, never done that, mostly because making a blade from a lump of steel tends to be cheaper than purchasing a weapon with historical value

        about a day ago in context
      • @zennx Yeah, but I don't have the equipment to make it from scratch right now, and I don't have experience in curved blades. This doesn't really have that much historical value as it's relatively new, so instead of trying to replicate the original guard and handle I'm just making something I find comfortable. Full sabers are kinda expensive, but as this was just blade and scabbard, it was cheap. About 60-65 dollars, with both of the hardest parts out of the way, so the rest is mostly patience.

    • I mean, in a plain iron guard, if it gets a big dent or badly bent or whatever, I can fix it with an angle grinder, a hammer and a welder, and it'll look as well as when it was new.

      • I'd love to do the guard in bronze but I don't have the equipment to weld bronze.

        about a day ago from web
        • Working the metal for the guard will be easier as you can fix iron and bronze if you screw them up, unlike wood.

                • I support state funded education as long as it includes regulation of it. A base quality and rules to be eligible for state funding. The moment an university starts teaching objectively wrong or stupid crap, or allows apes to fling crap at someone who's giving a speech for having different political ideas like in those videos that were circulating a while back, the state should completely cut funding of that institution.

                    • I mean, communism in principle is just "I think people should earn the amount they work for" right? I get that in practice it's kind of bad but to call someone like Sanders or Corbyn a communist just seems to be really reductive to me. That's not even including the fact that it's not like a Sanders presidency (RIP) would automatically make America communistic; up to a certain point is it not just the belief that working for an equivalent amount of money is a neat idea? I dunno, this is way beyond my element

                      • @nerthos Good to know. I probably trailed off too much in that post; obviously I'm not trying to defend the kinds of capitalism you brought up (and I couldn't if I wanted to because I know next to nothing about the topic)

                      • @tiffany Honestly capitalism is good in moderation. You just need a little drop of socialism in there to prevent the biggest capital holders from mining the field so no one else can climb. As long as the state ensures equal grounds for earning capital, then yes, people will earn what they work and think for. If you don't regulate it at all though you can be sure it'll quickly become a plantation-like economy where most of the population will basically work for food and housing tokens they have to spend in the stores owned by their own boss.
