Multi-colored scales is one of the reasons I have had a tough time resisting SAK purchases. :)

Not yet.

I have some plastic polish that would probably do the job. But then the messy chemical burns kinda serve as a reminder to be more careful. And isn't a scar just a tattoo with a better story? (http://www.pic4ever.com/images/hanghead.gif)

Well, there is a difference:

ability

- possession of the means or skill to do something.
- talent, skill, or proficiency in a particular area.

opportunity

- a time or set of circumstances that makes it possible to do something.
- a chance for employment or promotion.

In Dutch, we have the words vaardigheid and gelegenheid.

You´re right, but I make mistakes too. See how I´ve edited my post.

In fact, my IQ has been measured over 150. That´s because of my skills with words and numbers. Otherwise, I´m a social misfit and a very unstable person (Asparagus syndrome  :D). I became a gardener because it helps me to evade certain problems. I work in a protected environment and live on a budget controlled by local government.

PS And I´m happier than ever before.

Update!
After the pics I noticed some scratches on the Swissflame scales that I still didn't polish out.
So went into the basement and placed it against the polishing wheel.

Front scale is nearly new. Back scale was held to long against the wheel, overheated and melted a big part from the scale :facepalm:

So if anyone has got a spare set of red translucent plus scales or just the back plus scale, give me a shout!

I'm quite confused, is this color or model somehow different from the color twins models? because in Finland the packs retail for around €35 ergo under 40 bucks, there is even some for sale at €18.50 by the importer.

Yeah, I saw WWWs post this morning for the first time and wondered what kind of dollars are those! The best price I can find is 24 euros on Amazon germany for the green "snot colour" Spartan.

Awesome. There are actually two or different shades of onyx which may or may not be caused by sunlight or whatever. I think "black" onyx and "reddish" onyx are two distinct colors.

Also, there is another shade of orange that is very uncommon :)

I will have 'pinky' onyx :) This little Sportsman is Black Onyx. I have also 'browny' onyx scales in my Wenger.

Huge thanks to SirMike.  Sorry bud I've been lazy to post pics up of my Deluxe Tinker in gorgeous blue and Explorer in ruby red.  Yes I lost the darn tweezers but a spare is near. 

Thanks again my friend the scales really dress these old friends up so nicely.   :salute:

Just seeing the replies guys :facepalm: and thanks :hatsoff:

The pins I used were standard instead of metric but after a year and a half it is still doing pretty good :tu: I sanded down the bigger pin stock to match the 2.2 mm though and that also worked fine :salute: As far as finding the pin stock it was much easier than getting the in line awl :ahhh :D You can tear a Pioneer apart to get one but if the knife is in good shape then I can't bring myself to do it :-[ :D Modding is fairly straight forward as long as you have a few of the tools to do it and I had all of them beforehand :tu: Plus we have plenty of people on here with modding experience that can answer all sorts of questions :like:

Thanks . . .

Had to go digging back to when I acquired the Climber and some scales I had bought around that time. I believe it came with the generic red. Whatever color, they were in well worn condition. Replaced them with the emerald thinking they were an appropriate color for its tool set.

Sinar Photography, AG is a Swiss camera company specializing in extremely high resolution "view" cameras for commercial studio, landscape, reproduction and architectural photography, the extremely large digital backs for them, and the software for processing the RAW images captured by them. Found this BNIB Cybertool M with their branding on ePrey some time back at much less than they normally sell for.

A "view" camera, sometimes referred to as a "technical" (in studio) or "field" (on location outside studio) camera is a large format. With film (which is still used) they use large 4"x5" and larger sheet film negatives (the other common size is 8"x10"). Think in terms of what you've seen in the movies set in the late 19th Century with the photographer dude using the monster camera on a heavy wood tripod with black cloth hood on the back, using large glass plate negatives. These are the modern versions of them. If you're going to make a photograph the size of an entire wall, you're not going to use a high end 35mm format digi camera which maxes out at about 11"x17" or so for high-res and high-def commercial work (won't debate this; I've used small and medium format too much for professional work on the side). Medium format 6x4.5cm, 6x6cm, and 5x7cm will get you a solid 16"x20" to about 32"x40", maybe a little bigger but you need world class glass lenses and the knowledge of how to use them for max resolving power (lenses have resolution limits; some are much better than others). For an entire wall, you're going to use large format technical or field camera. I'd be thinking Schneider-Kreuznach or similar high grade lenses. Depending on how huge the print, you would use a 4"x5" or an 8"x10" camera. That's the size of the negative, literally a sheet of film. You have to see extremely large high resolution 8'x10' prints (that's in feet, not inches) you can walk up to and view from a foot or closer with a magnifier and still not run out of fine detail at the limits of human visual acuity. Most folks have never really seen very large prints with exceptional resolution.

Trivia Question:
Who can identify all the cameras shown in these photographs? One should be relatively easy, another not too difficult except perhaps to nail it exactly and the third might be a tough one . . .
