   Some of you know Aloha's name and address.  I wish someone would find his phone number and give him a buzz.  Not about the surprise box.  Forget that. 
    People go MIA from here all the time.  I could name some.  So could you.  This is strange stuff for a highly placed member of the forum.  If I were going on vacation or something, I would say so and tell everyone I would mail the box when I got back.  Didn't happen here. 
    Stuff happens to people.  All of us.  I don't think it would be indiscrete for someone to call.  It is natural to check on your friends.  Best wishes.  G

I had his address to send him the post card but I never had his number.  I put mine on the post card though, so I figured somebody could call if they're able.

We don't have Aloha's phone number or a call would have been made.

Got the box today!  This thing is packed to the max, lol!  Snatched up a Swiss Tool, not sure what models the 2 SAK's are, but picked those, one of the can openers, a pocket organizer, one of the fat wood sticks, and the Tool Logic.  Had a Tool Logic when I was a kid and lost it.  Also lost my mind trying to find it the darn thing, so had to grab it, lol.

Anyways, added a bunch of stuff, there's really no room left in the thing, lol.  A little spoiler for one of the items I put in there.

It's getting shipped tomorrow to BigShep

Good picks Lazar 👍
If I start and end the day above ground, it is a good day!

Hope yours is as good!

Excellent choices Lazar!   :like:
The Swiss Tool is a top tear pliers based tool for sure.  You can check the SAKWiki to determine what the knife based tools are.  The grey one is probably a Timekeeper with alarm and may only need a battery to get it back to working again. :cheers:

Yep, no battery in it, I'll have to pick one up.  I've already taken apart the red SAK.  Cleaned all the corrosion off everything and cut out some brass scales.  The original red scales are in pretty rough shape.  Thinking about Acid Etching the tools too.

Wasn't able to get the box out today, I thought the post office closed at 02:00 on Saturdays, but they close at 12:00. :facepalm:

Figured out that 84mm SAK was a Recruit.  Got it finished and sharpened.  Thanks to everyone that has put items in the box!  Enjoy the pics!

I did end up going back through the box before sending it to BigShep and picked out some 91mm parts and added a few items.
