And I figured 20bux vs 60-70 at “real” knife stores is probably telling something.

Still, it looks like a pretty decent knife, as my finger will attest.

Maybe someone who’s a gerberphile can pick up 1-2 and evaluate ‘em. LOL

That is exactly what I thought – the products I have are still great, even after years of use. Even weight and overall logos, engravings, material seem either the same or very similar.

They’re still flashing at 21-22bux, so anyone wants, have at it.


Btw, anyone ever play with this Cima?

I got a coupla these a while back, too, and like ‘em. It’s got a flax handle, and even though it was a bit eerie at first, never having seen/felt one before, it’s also quite nice. Nice “natural” feel, hard to describe. Feels almost cloth-covered, actually “soft” to the touch, yet rigid.

I got one of those a couple of years ago – agree with you – feel I got my moneys worth

The Cima? Had to laff at the last video on the GB page. That guy (Rob Something) beat the crap out of it and it still came through fine.

Batoning some firewood with it, fine. Hammering it into a log and standing on it, with one/both feet, and hopping up’n‘down on it? Shocked

Get a few of those and you could become a lineman. LOL

 

Seems they’re both some pretty kick-ass knives, as long as they don’t turn into rust-magnets. Right now, I’m pretty happy with both types.

Hey, Gerbers under 20bux each if you spring for 2 or more.

Flashing for 21.something, and 10% off for ordering 2+. Total’s 19.something each.

Finally received my upgraded CPAP machine after more than 5 years with the ResMed S9 model which is discontinued. Medicare balked after a sleep study reported that I probably wouldn’t die from sleep apnea. My pulmonologist tore them a new A-hole about quality of life and my previous A-fib surgery possibly being related to the sleep apnea.

The newer AirSense10 Autoset just came today. It seems a bit more plasticky, especially in the water chamber which I’ve seen online has leakage problems. I’ll give it a go tonight after a turn in the SoClean 2

Iffn you gotta get old, get good doctors.

I used to have sleep apnea, and I had a CPAP machine that need to be replaced.

I had to do another sleep study to get a new CPAP machine, and it turned out that I no longer have sleep apnea, and my insurance would not cover another CPAP machine.

I had to buy my own CPAP machine with my own money!

I chose the Fisher & Paykel ICON Auto for $510 in 2014.

It seems to get the job done, so I think it was a good choice.

My wife way like that. Right now she just kicks me in the back to start me breathing again when I do an apnea. Sick

Picked up these cheap little Dayton speakers. I needed something small to fit on my TV cart beside the TV. Even though they have only 4” drivers, they sound more musical than my old DefTechs. Right now I have them crossed over at 80 Hz to the sub – still need to do some more listening and tweaking. They are not very efficient and have 4 Ohm impedance, so they give my old AV receiver a bit of a workout, but I have plenty of headroom since it’s a fairly small listening/viewing area – no need for very high volume. For $70 bucks, I’m happy.

Ordered a Seagate USB powered Backup Plus 5TB Portable Hard Drive with Rescue Data Recovery Services from Costco for $99 plus tax. With all the media I have, it’s cheap insurance if my house got robbed or burned down. I already have a few backups but this is a guarantee I will never lose my data. I will keep this hard drive in my safety deposit box I have at my local bank. Better safe than sorry.

Picked up a small Nespresso machine for those times when I’m in a hurry or don’t feel like firing up my big Breville manual espresso rig.

Had LeafFilter installed on my gutters yesterday. They will prevent debris from trees from clogging up the gutters and leaders which can cause water leakage into the house. I know from experience.

Essenza Mini. Amazon currently has it on sale for $76:

I think some local stores such as Target may offer it at similar price.

Cool.

Between Nespresso and Keurig, the taste of Nespresso beats Keurig hands down, IMO, although Nespresso capsules are a bit more expensive. I’ve heard Peet’s capsules work well in these machines and sometimes go on sale for a lot less than the original Nespresso ones. I’ll be picking some up next time they go on sale.

Got myself a Wifi mini router : the GL.inet GL-MT300N-V2

(not my pic)

Only ~22€, runs OpenWRT and it is software upgradable, unlike most cheap junk in the same category!

Got a cheap replacement rear master cylinder from Amazon, this one has an external reservoir and is supposed to be the 2005 upgrade to the 2004 Arctic Cat I have. This one was $25… Much better deal than the $260 OEM one that’s known to seize! Got it mounted, thought I got it filled and bled, still no foot brake.

Guess I get to pull the caliper and do a restore on that too. Putting these machines away for 5 years wreaks havoc! But that’s how I got it for a Benji so maybe it ain’t worth complaining about! Lol

Picked up some new pods to try in the Nespresso machine. These seem to be getting very favorable reviews as a viable alternative to original Nespresso ones, and they sometimes go on sale.

Just received a nos Ever ready 1912 single edge razor, and two Arkansas stones for my straights razors, one black and one black translucent. 10”×3”×1” size. Gotta flatten and lap them now.

My speaker hoarding addiction has been kicking in more than my flashlight addiction lately. Just grabbed these leftover DCM TP160S bookshelves from ebay, possibly for garage duty…

Pete,

Those speakers look sweet for the money!

How did MTX get a hold of DCM?
Just bought out the name and remaining stock maybe?

I sold the DCM Time Windows back in the 80’s when they were considered the sheet.
People blew the heck out of the tweeters and they took forever to send replacements.
Thanks

From what I’ve found online, MiTek/MTX acquired DCM in 1999. Over the years, they shut down the original DCM manufacturing facilities and transferred production to MTX facilities. Many of the DCM models were also discontinued and replaced with MTX designs, but still sold under the DCM brand name. MiTek owns a lot of different audio brands that they’ve amassed over the years.

From what I understand, these DCM TP160S were an original DCM design, now discontinued. Someone bought the remaining stock and is now selling it on ebay.
