GLBM said he's enjoying this place and all the tool talk.

Afterwards he states that he's kidding and that he doesn't speak German.



And that multitools are donkey poo...


At least that's what I could make from it.

Buy now or regret later

Thank you, Nick! :hatsoff:

There are three Accutrons in the same row of watches. Different versions though. The round SS case with gold markers on dial is an ultra-rate 219 "half fork" movement. The movement and dial came from a ruined gold-plated case and the case was from a ruined movement/dial. Instead of running at the normal frequency that the older Accutrons do, it runs at half, thus only requiring one half of the electromagnetic coil system. The big gold case Accuquartz (still an Accutron..I'll explain) is solid 10K gold (about 1.5tOz) and has a basic 216 tuning fork movement, but with a quartz control curcuit, instead of the early solid state transistor controller. It claims to be a bit more accurate in keeping time, but in reality is is was a gimmick to use up old tuning-fork movement parts and still put quartz in the name to impress people of the time who thought quartz movements were the end-all be-all of horological perfection.   ::)
The Accutron with the big SS case and see-through dial is a Spaceview model with a more-common 214 movement. The time is set by a tiny "handle" that folds out on the back and turns. The 214 movement is the most reliable and most desirable of the early Accutrons, because of the robust nature. :)

Sorry for going off topic
But when GLBM came up with the
wooden tool box for storing my knives
I just fell in love with the tool box and had to
have it so today I saved enough money to buy it

Hopefully I will receive it by the weekend :D

Thanks again GLBM  :cheers:

Fantastic, W! Congrats on that. :tu:

Do yourself a small favor and put some wax or bar soap on the drawer slides before loading it up. It does wonders to protect the slides from wear. :cheers:

:dunno:
Bar of hand soap or shower bar soap. I gently rub it on the wood with the grain until it feels slightly smooth. You don't want a thick layer on top of the wood. You'll probably know what I mean once you try one. Think like Ivory brand, Irish Sprong, etc. I am not sure what the most popular bar soaps you have in the U.K. :think:
Stay away from liquid soaps though. Liquid soap will seep to far into the wood and cause expansion. Paste wax is ideal, but a bar of soap, rubbed into the slide and rail, is good.  :)
