Anyone know where I can find like some scrap sound deadening material? Looking to do a project for a small air compressor in a box for an aquarium and I'm trying to cut down on the noise. Maybe like 1-2 sq ft?

^ Find a way to suspend/hang the compressor in the middle of a container. Kind of hard to describe but basically if it's "floating" there it'll greatly reduce the vibrations and noise

Go see Mike at Soundsgood Audio, or Clarence at Rise. Both are RS sponsors.


Oops......... thinking like a true car audio fanatic.

I guess you meant something else, LOL.

I actually found some 26.5oz mugs at Dollar Tree today for $1.25 a piece. Bought six of them - sill see how they hold up.

These were in my hotel room and I'm hooked! I've checked a few grocery stores but as I thought the stores do not carry this item. Anyone know where I can get them locally?



EDIT:

Scratch that! I found the website and a list of stores heh. Thanks anyways

Go to banana grove and get it freshly cut!

I only say this because I assume you're in the area (Renfrew heights)

Yes. You just need to ask for a thick cut. Or tell them however thick you want it.

They'll either max the setting on the slicer or will just cut it with a knife.

And if you're really crazy, you can get the whole thing. I remember when I worked at the deli in Urban Fare that I sold like whole packaged deli meats in its entirety. If this is the case, you'll get a discount.

You may need to ask for it though because this is a small business but I'm sure the owner will accomodate you. He's a really nice guy so I don't see why you would have any issue if you're buying the whole thing.

711 carrys a brand that are considered e-"hookahs" but are essentially e-cigs without any nicotine

I think its just flavored something. good for those who want to quit smoking but still need something to hold/puff on

comes with 1 flavor and a usb charging kit for 15-25$. And you can buy additional flavors that come 2 in a pack.

THANKS! I never knew 7-11 sold them!

I quit smoking 2 weeks ago (after about 15 years) and while I am no longer addicted to nicotine\tobacco, etc....I miss sucking on something (yes, i know that sounds bad)

it might take a few 711s before you find one that has them in stock.

I believe this is the brand they carry

and a good on you for quitting

smoking cigarettes is bad for you!

stick to the natural herb
