Who was it on here that dropped a similar? Amount on a Gucci key ring?

I put a remote through the washing machine a couple of years ago. Was on a 60 degree wash for about 2.5 hours. Didn’t realise it was in there until I emptied it. Worked fine straight out the wash and still working now!

discord groups. /r/wallstreetbets,/r/cryptocurrency, news stories talking about companies adopting a coin to be used in the future, following a coin that isn't on binance/cb and then if they announce it is, buy it the fuck up.

I would say rice, but not convinced. I managed to upend a whole cup of tea on an Apple Keyboard, but never managed to get it working again. Cry

R - I know it was a cheap shot, but I needed that joke. Laughing out loud

you shouldnt try and use it while it is still wet. you will have shorted a circuit and killed it…. if you let electronics dry for 2 days in rice then try and switch on/use they are often ok

Yes mate, I have a power cage in the garage and looked extensively at flooring, anything labelled for a gym will have a huge mark up.

Find a stable mat supplier near you, I bought 2 about 7 years ago, they're solid rubber and weigh about 30kg per mat, wont ever break or wear out and definitely up to the job of dropping weights on them.

Just bought 18 1x1 60mm rubber panels. I was looking at the matts but want it to fit. If I sell house I’m in will look good as well.

Got the cage, bench and dumbells, bar, kettlebells,

Can’t believe the prices people are trying to charge for weights.

Using Mirafit mostly - service is amazing.

What setup you got Kadafi

Sorry mate, missed this! Sounds good.

Yeah prices for all equipment is ridiculous since covid. Glad I got mine years ago becuase at current prices Im sure it would have cost 3+ times as much!

I got all my stuff from powerhouse fitness, I have their heavy duty cage, with the low and high pulleys, bench, olympic bar and weights and dumbells. Loads of random attachments and curling bars, dip bars which go on the cage and a treadmill. Not the cleanest or most complete home gym but I love it.
