More lacrosse gear. Thanks to eBay, snagged protective gloves that fit like driving gloves for 60% off.  My old ones smell like a Superfund site.

A common Subaru problem.  I'm not sure what the pricing would be.  When I was a student, I just sort of crushed the heat Shields down on the pipes a bit.

If you're willing to drive a bit, Subie Solutions in Gansevoort is run by a member here. Fred's a good guy, a true Subie guru.

If you want something a little closer, Don's Garage in Cohoes has done some good work for me when I've been in a bind.

Newbs & FAQs / New to Albany...reputable mechanic?
« Last post by SkinnerBox on August 17, 2017, 12:42:12 PM »
Hey all,

I'm new to Albany (just relocated for graduate school) and new to the Subaru family (2004 Subaru Forester 2.5XS, ~102k miles)! I am looking for a reputable mechanic in the area. My exhaust or heat shield (the Y-joint or whatev) is rattling in the low RPMs. Seems to be getting worse over the last few weeks. I'm a n00b when it comes to car repair, however,  I would like to learn as time goes on. First, I would like this looked at by a professional.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks!
Eric

Lol I've shot with my fair share of those too
If you're talking the warped sticks hanging on the walls, there will always be something to be said for the feel of a solid, 1 piece cue...Not to mention the effect it can have on your betting game  :coolsmiley:

See attached, the purple is going to darken up a bit more with sanding and applying finish. The grain in the olive should pop even more too

Sweet.  I'd probably suck with a pool queue that wasn't a bent cheapie, at this point in my life.  :mrgreen:

Shit's starting to get real  :evil:
Still a bit of a ways to go on it (there was a set back with the first piece of olive wood splitting) but damn, i think he's nailing it with the anally specific measurements I gave him  :smitten:

Yup, too bad someone couldn't get some use out of it. WRX is long gone and have zero intention on ever buying another junkbaru again.

Recently got into locksport and have been getting padlocks randomly from garage sales, and targeted from amazon.

I just ordered a bunch of gage feelers to start fabricating my own picks. Or, most likely accidently start a fire while I try to fabricate.




Always liked desktop puzzles so I decided, a couple of years ago, to make use of it. Started small and worked my way up. Now a bobby pin and a bent paperclip are my go to picks. Always have them in my wallet and they work well.

Straightness is going to be the key to avoiding frustration with pins. I'm sure you can guess how I know lol
They make presses to put a dremel in that actually work pretty well, and can be found cheap from time to time. I had one i bought for like $5 just missing the round knob on the handle, but i gave that one away a while ago.
If you don't want to go that route, just make sure you leave extra material around the edges to take off after assembly.  Either way, have all layers glued and clamped before drilling  :mrgreen:

Ah. Well then, you've got a doppelganger cruising around out there :-D
