  1. are we sure that MEK and acetone actually bond the bricks? this product seems like it just "cleans" the material - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004670W1U?keywords=abs%20adhesive&qid=1446402562&ref_=sr_1_14&refinements=p_85%3A2470955011&sr=8-14
  2. what would be the application technique? just coat it after it's built? put drops on each brick as it is layed?
  3. Sorry, didn't have notifications on, so I never got any updates. interesting... so I'm looking at $20 http://www.essentialhardware.com/sunnyside-84732-methyl-ethyl-ketone-160580.html?utm_campaign=google&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&gclid=Cj0KEQjwqsyxBRCIxtminsmwkMABEiQAzL34PY6Wh2_PuWpf11CgxGuPRvqaX79Ev7l5iRDzXJ-LdloaAtYv8P8HAQ or $10 http://www.amazon.com/Rust-Oleum-Automotive-248667-32-Ounce-Acetone/dp/B003Y8DI4K/ref=pd_sim_60_4?ie=UTF8&dpID=51CHxX50YDL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL160_SR98%2C160_&refRID=0Q95ER30D53HMPA4SX28 from the first link, it seems MEK is slower to dry...maybe that helps with the time to place the bricks and leaving the lid off as you build? very interesting option though, since it's available cheaply at large quantity, where super glue/kragle is not. how about UV protection?
  4. I built a lampost for my house and I want to know how best to protect it. Does anyone recommend a UV protector clear coat? How about a glue for the ~6 foot tall lampost? It's pretty much all red 2x4 bricks. I'm thinking about clear silicon sealant on the interior to try to protect it from the elements a bit. I do plan to wire it up with a working light.

    I did try to do that, but I agree, perhaps not as much that would create a nice detail. There are a few 2x3 plate based trees, and i added some 1x1 round brown plates the the trunk to add a variety in height. Definitely a small detail that could go a long way, thank you!

    That's actually a good suggestion, thanks. I could probably build a nice tiled grass lawn and sidewalk area rather than just the exposed studs as grass.

    I put this up on cuusoo in aug 2013, and it was at ~70 votes last friday. Thanks to reddit, then University of Pittsburgh, Then local media outlets, then a BUNCH of other people, like the Mayor of Pittsburgh, sharing it, it got up to 700 votes in a week, making it the 4th most supported project last week. http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/43478 more info about the build here - http://sixf00t4.com/2012/06/cathedral-of-learning-in-lego-bricks/ I have no idea how to top the exposure than Pitt sharing it. it generated about 8,000 page views, and from what I can tell on the projects that broke 10,0000 votes, they were at +300,000 page views. So, my support to view ratio is much better, but dang, how to break that many views??? I was hoping to just break 1,000 to get a LEGO official comment, but I think that burst of supports will be the peak activity.
  9. That's a whole separate problem and old thread though...why would you move it there?
  10. I just had my PC crash so I had to reinstall brickstore on my win7 box. I'm running the same version as before, 1.1.16. When I import a set or add a new piece, it used to highlight the price in red, since it was $0.00 and list it as an error. Now it's not doing anything. Also, I am pretty sure there was a way to mass edit the comments, but I don't see that option now... What ever happened to this program anyway? The author doesnt respond to mails for me to buy a license for it.
