I need a few ideas on a band for my Black Monster. I want to pick a couple bands for various situations/purposes.
Here's the direction i'm going:
black grooved silicone:
James Bond NATO:
Maybe something with a bund to keep the 3:45 crown from chewing up my wrist?
Any suggestions otherwise?
Got my red ICE sport last week, and it's great. Looking into throwing a "bordeaux" sport in on my next order, but i can't for the life of me figure out what the "bordeaux plastic" is :confused1
Anybody have any insight?
Quick question on these, how orange is the orange? I picked up a Sheaffer VFM on my last Goulet order and the orange was way different in person than the pic. (looks almost pumpkin/umber on my screen, traffic cone orange in hand :lol:)
Found a random stamped envelope in my desk, so I'm tossing in a few random blades for a lucky newbie (less than 30 posts, joined this month, preferably one who hasn't gotten a blade sampler yet)
Treet Black Beauty
I'll pick based on post # at...
Since a good time was had by all (...all 3 of us :blush:) earlier this month. I think with a little more organization and more lead-up time we could have a meetup to rival the likes of the DFW meets :lol:
So, as it stands we're in the pre-planning stage, target date early-mid June. Aiming for...
Whilst browsing the pipe gallery thread i saw that eagle-eye Jim pointed out a nimrod in Jmallen5's post (the lighter that is :lol:) If anybody (Jim and Jmallen included) has any insight or further pics of the workings of these things, what would be a good price for a user-grade one, and whether...
Here's how I cobble my soaps into sticks.
Step 1: Grate the soap into a bowl, add a few drops of water to aid adhesion
Step 2. loosely pack the soap shreds into a ~1" diameter tube/pipe
Step 3. Cap one end of the tube and plug the other with a bottle cap (to evenly distribute the load)...
This is a continuation/rehashing of my dismal failure previous attempt at a PIF.
Here's how it's going this go-round
-Open to CONUS newbies (less than 75 posts/joined in 2011) that have not tried SE, Boar brushes, and/or shave sticks (any...
A couple of us have discussed a meetup sometime this spring.
Red Top Mountain/Lake Allatoona seems central enough for the local members that i'm aware of (Rome area - Alpharetta W-E, Rome - ATL N-S)
Any thoughts on this? The only iffy part IMO is knowing the hrc#, but as well as the one i bought for woodwork has held up, I wouldn't be surprised if worked. In any case, the price is nice enought to not feel bad if i ruin it, and if i cut it right, i'll still have a useable 3-4" saw :thumbup1:
I find it ironic that the guy that's modeling the shirts is in dire need of a shave...
Ohh, just saw this one too; the progression of clippers used on the bottles...
The Walmart wilkinsons have changed packaging, it seems as though they used up all of the old-stock schick stamped-metal dispensers and are now using the rounded black plastic cases with individually wrapped blades. There is a possibility that these are now the same blades and...
Went out for lunch before he heads back to school, and we ended up at an antique shop. He told me to find something for less than $25 (he wouldn't take no for an answer :001_rolle) So... I'm now the proud owner of a parker pen & pencil set (for less than a brand new stainless jotter, to boot...
