    You mean how long for the spring-loaded endlinks to grind out the inside of your lugs?

    Oi. I've been so bad about checking in around these parts. Well, the 36,000 bph stuff isn't really any different. The higher beat rate tends to cause a little extra wear on the escapement, so if you slack on normal maintenance expect pallet and escape wheel issues after they run dry, which can...

    Moab 2021: This time we are going (May 17-21, 2021)

    And I just stuck in the few last of the photos I had from the day we left and drove through the storms and into New Mexico in the album. FYI, most of the photos I took were in my 108MP mode, so most of them are available in a larger 12000x9000 resolution which looks a fair bit better than the...

    I wish we would have thought to save the dash cam video of that happening.

    Moab 2021: This time we are going (May 17-21, 2021)

    Those are my fun shorts :mrgreen: I've dumped like 400 pictures into our album for the trip. We'll have to go through them, or probably just post up an album link. Team Texas has packed up and is headed out this morning with a proper rain storm in the region, so we had more or less perfect...

    The good news is, because this is apparently a thing withour FG meets, I have the Stroopwafles as well.

    Moab 2021: This time we are going (May 17-21, 2021)

    So, my fellow Team Texas people forgot to ask me when booking accommodations, and consequently I have none. Anyone else still need to make some and/or have an additional room?

    The 900P and 910P models have the same sort look with a more reasonable sub $30,000 price tag as well. You just have to settle with thicknesses of 3.65 and 4.3mm instead of 2. :mrgreen:

    As I recall that model starts at about $440,000, and goes up depending on the options and configuration the buyer opts for- there are a bunch of customization options that make up something like 195,000 possible configurations. So yes, in this instance if you want the thinnest mechanical watch...

    The kids thing is interesting. It baffles me when people who aren't in a good position to raise multiple children try to do so, perhaps that's brash to say but looking at it from a wide viewpoint I feel like it's just more of a strain not only on society as a whole, but the actual parent(s) when...

    Wait till you see one in person. The best way I've been able to describe it is that it looks like special effects. It's absurd to hold and look at.

    Well, looks like very likely 80s or perhaps early 90s to me. The Deville line was one of their more budget lines, which is evidenced by the gold plated case and the stainless back. It's going to be a fairly simple quartz movement, which means easy service if needed. For specifics, it's not a...

    Well I got plenty of pictures of said rider cornering. I'll let said rider choose any appropriate ones to demonstrate whatever he wants.

    Yeah the next few maintenance sessions with him on that bike will involve threadlocker on all the ancillary bits. I think there's been enough history of loose bolts with his bikes :-D

    So during our roadtip this holiday weekend @Der Stig had a foot peg fall off his motorcycle while I was following him. About 4 seconds in as the Chevy is alongside him you can see the peg fall off on his right side before making a couple small bounces and then flying up and off to the right...

    Maybe if I stop spending money on stupid things I don't need I can afford to finally upgrade my 660Ti ?

    Am I remembering correctly in that there's a member or two here with a vinyl cutter and able to do custom cuts/decals? I have 4 words I need done in an orangey-yellow color fit in about a 1.5 by 6 inch size....
