Hultafors Chisel knife
(Image removed from quote.)

and another set of 4mm to 1/4" bit adapters, since the first one was not delivered.

Was I the only one reading that as "Hultafors Cheese knife"?

 :facepalm:

I need a sandwich...

 :D :D

Is there any better text message than “Out For Delivery”?

An SAK lot I really didn't need. I probably, at $50 set my bid too high. But, $15 in rewards points saved my butt; and it ended up costing me just $30. There are two Wengers, which gives me more choice for the upcoming Delemont challenge. And on the Wengers, scale tools still appear to be in place. One used to be able to buy Wenger scale tools, even a few years after Vic ceased producing Wenger for about the same price as Vic--now they're rare as hen's teeth.

In the lot appears to be the following:  Believe it or not, I ID'd most on my own with only having to look at the SAK Wiki for the EVO Wenger.



Left column:

Classic SD
Gardener/Florist
Secretary (I bid high partly because I thought it was a watch case opener model, it's not)

Right Column:

Companion
Wenger Golfer
Wenger EVOS101

My first real chopper knife, a Condor Moonshiner.   Nine inch, 3/16 inch thick 1075 blade; and a leather sheath. Cost, less than $50. Machetes are too long for me to reasonably carry, and Kabars aren't really suited to what I do (but great utility knives). Hatchets are kinda too heavy for some jobs.

Stanley SL10 Trapper.  Camillus made these for United Cutlery (who had licensed the Stanley name) in the early 2000s. The unusual thing about this pattern is the fully serrated spey/skinner blade. It was only $20 shipped , and given these are sorta uncommon, I couldn't resist!

Well, it’s not a multitool or sak, but the kid got close enough with his savings to where we’re chipping in since his bdays coming up and we ordered his custom computer, all built from individual parts he picked and not just a specific model, so it’s not a dell or other brand, total gaming comp, I sooo can’t wait to see this thing and what it can do, he complains on how his current one drags and the graphics suck, well, that’s because we bought it for him just for school work and didn’t think he would push it this far, but since he won’t need his other comp that means we can have it and play sims, lol, well just need to get a cheap monitor, mouse and keypad, :D

Nice!

While TS2 and TS4 (the latter loaded down with mods too) run fine on basically any PC I've tried with at least an i5; TS3 runs horrid on most computers, even on low spec models. These days, the games I'm noticing being listed are being more and more hardware intensive. More and more are recommending i7 or equivalent AMD processors, and I noticed one on Steam the other night that recommended the i9. I've had a long line of toasters intended for consumer use. I bought an Acer gaming PC, but it was crap. It was apparently refurbished, and no one told me, since the "one-year" warranty had started in May, but the PC was bought in Oct. Also, Acer used a too-small power supply, which caused it to crash under any load. I tried to fix the problem myself and probably shorted something out, as it didn't work when I got everything back together.   I'm getting a proper gaming PC, and am aiming for about a $700-800 budget.

I had a newer Asus with an i5 that went kaput, and before getting a computer like you bought for your son (since I suck at computer repair; so I can't build one myself), bought a refurbished Dell Optiplex workstation as an interim to do college work on until I can get a good PC for gaming. It has a 3rd gen i7/16GB of RAM, which is the first I've seen that is able to run TS3 well and not crash. But, that old Intel can't run most games; due to its internal graphics not being supported by current-gen Direct X. And, the solid state drive is just 250GB. I have a handful of games on it (TS2, TS3, TS4), some older games from GOG, as well as several indie titles off both Steam and GOG, and, my hard drive is about 200GB full. I may have to pick up an external drive.

It could have been a powersupply failure, you can test that by shorting a couple of the pins on the PSU to see if it spins up. I know that building a PC can seem daunting, but a little bit of caution and patience and it's really not that bad, the hardest part is neat cable management for me (always buy hude cases >.>)

GEC H30119 Woodland Muslin Hunter

Been after a decent fixed blade for general use and every time I see Aloha post a pic I’ve really liked it, seems like a good balance of weight and utility, don’t need anything any larger or for heavy duty.
US/Australia $ exchange rate isn’t bad at the moment so just ordered it from TKC :like:
