The Easter Egg idea sucks, based on past experience.
Thermoforming would be nice if it were affordable.
Mono loops are a personal preference; right up there with Easter Eggs as far as I'm concerned.
Some people LIKE doing the 5/5 thing!

Hey, did anybody see that coffee-powered rocket ship that just went through here? :hehe: Did it have a bunch of fishy looking bumper stickers on it ???

Juro - Do you want the Atlas nose cones or not ? - gotta keep us 5/5 guys respectable, ya know...

Dave, I saw it....but the window for viewing such a spectacle is quite narrow....I'd say only in the wee hours of the night.

That thing had turbo boosters!

Ok...Ok.... Only if the coffee powered entity used a French Press... Yes, I have not lost my Basket...so it was $40... god knows when ,some time ago... the bumper stickers attribute to it longevity... Juro ,If it takes you such short time then I can't not differ with that... I will just buy another, if I lose it....OR if I run out of room for bumper stickers on my existing one.....Dave

What is this, "What's My Line" ???

Oh, then it must be back to me - "Ten Dollars, now, to Mr. Fix..."

[Mr. Fix] "Mystery Guest - is the object that we are to guess perhaps made of plastic; will it maintain contact with bumper stickers and do you agree that it is worth more than Ten Dollars?"
[Guest (in his best disguised voice)] "Mai Oui, Mon Ami!"
[Mr. Fix] "Is this object worth more than Twenty Dollars, including molding and straps?"
[G] "More."
[F] (under his breath - "in your opinion, yeah...") "Will it hold coffee or water while at the beach?"
[G] "Both; one would be spilled into and the other awash around, as well as inside."
[F] "Does one use these in the Northeast surf?"
[G] "Perhaps and No"

bbbzzzzzzzzzztttt
[Moderator] "Fifteen Dollars to Kitty Carlisle." :hehe:

Dave -

If you are certain you can spare them, I will give them a try! Thanks in advance. I have a few more $2 dishpans kicking around in the garage for experimentation purposes.

The problem with these is that the solution will not be repeatable - meaning no lack of appreciation of course. The ideal solution would be easy to re-create.

Thanks

"The problem with these is that the solution will not be repeatable...The ideal solution would be easy to re-create. "

"I'd think a contact at Charrette, where they do contract work for businesses, would produce more of them than we could effectively use, kinda like Nick's boxes"...

That might possibly be arrainged with a certain red-headed architect I know...getting on it. we can make THOUSANDS! Hundereds even.

Porcupine - Somehow, just as I suspected

I knew you'd come up with something beneficial to add here. I really thought you were gonna take a shot, but you disappointed me.

dissapointed!?

signal: I have half a brain sometimes.

shot: it did cross my half-mind but I actually GOT the reference and can picture Kitty Carlisle wearing something with flowerey accessories, the set of the show and almost the moderator in his blue suit and wiiiide tie bold stripes like bad wallpaper in typical early 70's fashion and reconsidered - besides, any attempt to one up such an elegant dig would only do it an injustice...they'll be other threads, I'm trying to get a little more trecherous with my digs

Then you're WAY OFF !!!

'cuz I was in the Fifties version, even tho' it's memorable beyond...

Quick trivia question without looking it up in ancient internet trivia resources: What's the Host/Moderator's name in my timeframe?? Your Host/Moderator is Gary Moore.

This plug is made by Badger Plug, Greenville, Wisconsin. Made of HDPE, item # 123P21. Patent 5,351,825

How about Cigar tubes ?

A dab of superglue to seal the cap then marine goop to the base of the dishpan. I would be looking for a bit more surface area though - might not take much abuse.

Or there are those power drinks with the cone shaped caps (Red Bull taste-alike) - where's Roop when you nee him Very lightweight (drink the contents first) then glue the can plus cap to the base of the bowl.

John, I'm surprised at you - you tie flies don't you? you should understand the search for better/easier/not-gonna-pay-ten-when-I-can-get-it-for-five, even-if-I-have-to-burn-twenty-in-gas-getting-it-all/magic materials like craft store body braid, crease fly foam & jewlery wire...It's a Yankee ingenuity thing and that's the point.

Sure any Juro-shmow can drop the cash on the counter and get what they want but how many O flies are in your box?

Why don't you just buy 'em instead of taking all that time with the epoxy & feathers (not to mention all the time we take reading about it here on the BB)? For the same reason I do - because it's your hobby, that's why.

It's not the "thing" that's important here, it's the "doing". And besides, how else are we gonna get King Curmudgeon to give us game show history lessons?

[edit] and if it helps, I've got a constant supply of Badger part #11P21N:
3.00" dia x 1.00" tall - flange is 3.50" dia. OD, 3.00" ID
If it doesn't have to be conical just cheap & low profile.

I was going to say something like that but I think Todd said it better :hehe:

Say Todd, how did the Ireland trip go?

Juro, I left you a voicemail message at home.

I am proud to be a 5/5 guy, in the vein of Red Green and other venerable, yet cantakerous, parsimonius Yankee tightwads.

As for the dissenters, rabblerousers and malcontents, I'll deal with you later :eyecrazy:

Signed,
King Curmudgeon

P.S. to Sprocket. Your Game Show Host, Gary Moore, hosted the same show in later years.
