Let me know if you have any questions about it. I'd be happy to answer. MR's 3-day assault was the runner-up. I like their main compartment zipper scheme better than the Switchblade's and I'd spring for the extra $ since it's made CONUS but the Switchblade won out because it was more subtle (didn't say "assault" on it) and had better partitioning for my use case(s). Coming from 7 years w/ a Blackhawk Hydration pack, I like multiple stash compartments.

No, only Tiberian Dawn + add on missions and Red Alert + covert missions. Also MP and map creator. The new soundtracks are not mine, stick to the classics.
For my taste they'd increased the difficulty at the actual version, at legacy winning even on hard notch wasnt so tough.

I also added on some non-Eberlestock G-hook straps to use for side compression.
Nice! I use the same bag for edc.

I'm always trolling for new glasses and these checked all the boxes. I'll return them if I don't like how they look when they arrive, but that's unlikely.

Dig. Looking for new frames myself. After losing the weight, my frames are too big for my head now.

I'm not sure if you're joking, but I've lost at least 30lbs over the last year and I've noticed my hats fitting different but discounted it as the hats changing. I didn't think my head would get smaller! Lol

Not joking at all. I've lost 80 pounds. My fitted hats don't fit anymore either. The really messed up thing is that some of my boots fit differently now as well.

Something I didn't realize when I started this journey is that your body loses it's fat as a whole....as in percentage. If you lose 5%, you lose 5% everywhere. Plus side to this, it does make your package bigger as well. That in itself is enough motivation to lose weight.

Pretty sure that is just perspective Judi. Losing mass elsewhere just makes it SEEM bigger.

If you are looking for frames made in USA, check out State Optical. They are made in Chicago and all of their styles are named after streets in Chicago. I got a pair a couple of months ago from my eye doctor. They are very nice. Mine are the Logan in Lapis Sand color. I really like them. My other frames are carbon fiber Oakley's that I have had since late 2014. I change back and forth.

Negative. I can assure you, it seems nothing. It has been confirmed. That is all I will say, aside from it is significant.

Awesome! Thank you! I love finding new companies, especially ones with a good back story. Checking them out now.

If you have 1 inch, and add an inch, you've doubled your initial size, and that's significant! But if you have 6 inches, and add an inch, that's only a 17% increase.

Just saying...if you start out with a nub...

Talking My nw welding table!

Well, the absolutely last thing I bought was a sandwich from Jimmy John's, but my last major purchase was this welding table. It is a made in USA, Certi-flat FabBlock FB3030 and has a base kit with casters that I have not built yet. I followed the directions to a tee and have had a bit of an issue with the top not being completely flat. I had to cut out the welds between the frame and the top and will attempt to reinstall the top flipped over. The manufacturer says this should take care of the flatness issues and if not, they will ship me a new table!

I'm just learning how to MIG and TIG weld, and I have not stick welded since 1990.

Photo 1: Action shot of me tack welding part of the bottom of the table on the temporary workbench. These are the support ribs and sides that give the table it's very rigid and flat construction.

Photo 2: Assembly complete, need to check for flatness and adjust as necessary. I had issues here so I had to remove the top.

Photo 3: Using a Dremel tool with a cutoff wheel to cut the welds between the tabs of the table underside and the slots in the table top.

Photo 4: Tapping the top off with a small 3 lb. sledge hammer.

Photo 5: Moving the top off of the temporary workbench.

Photo 6: The table support structure after removing top.

Photo 7: Close-up of the support structure tabs before grinding out the rest of the welds to dress up the tabs to reinstall the top.

Photo 8: The top of the removed top. This will become the new bottom of the top.

Photo 9 The bottom of the removed top. This will become the new top of the top.

Photo 10: Close-up of the damage caused by using a larger cut-off wheel on my 4.5" angle grinder. These will ultimately be on the bottom of the top and I'll do some weld fill-in after the table is reassembled and welded out.

Photo 11: Close-up of the same area in Photo 10 but on the other side.

I have all of the tabs dressed on the table support structure and started to file down some high spots that I found. I hope to dry-fit the top today and if I can get it flat, weld it out. If not, I'll wait until the new one comes.

Or.....if you have a half an inch....that's REALLY significant.

Hopeless dude - I'd just start googling prosthetics and go from there. Some real advancements in that field. I think you'll be satisfied.

Either that or you could go with the cheaper option of some J-B Weld and a dildo.
