    Yup, Sheaffer OS balance - best part is the smooth flexible nib, on a Sheaffer!

    Is that the special edition they came out with several years ago or is it vintage?

    I have Sheaffers dating back to the early '20s, but have yet to encounter one with a flexible nib. That really must be something.

    Love the Alpinist, such a nice watch

    Nice Seiko Dark.

    Thanks. [​IMG] Sometimes it takes me a double or triple look just to tell what time it is. Very comfy as well.

    The Paperpro 20 sheet stapler. Actually I tried it on 30 sheets and it was effortless. I love this stapler!

    do sunglasses count as clothing items?

    Anyhow, picked up some Randolph Engineering aviator frames on ebay for like $14. Arrived today, took them down to the optometrist and got polarised lenses put in them for another $25.

    Happy with that, they suit me and fit under my motorbike helmet really well.

    Vintage, I'm not really into modern pens.

    That's the lens hood. It shades it from bright light sources to prevent glare and also helps protect the lens glass. It also looks cool. [​IMG]

    I see! [​IMG]

    [​IMG] $49 bucks with the stand and a sustain pedal... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] just took 1/2 hr going through it and now there's only one key that doesn't work. Sounds cool as hell, I need to get some pedals to run it through now. If you don't know what this thing sounds like (I had never seen one) I'm 99% sure it's the same as the piano in the intro to APC's "Laundry".

It's a circuit bender's dream - every key has its own little circuit board, and the rest of the electronics are very simple and easy to poke around with. I'll probably be adding all kinds of weirdness to it.

    ahh dammit...at some point I would like to own something that is not either a rip off of something you own, or something that you just so happened to own before I got it!

    Very cool!
    Thanks, my friend came over last night with a Big Muff and Electric Mistress and we hooked it up through those. It sounds amazing. I'm going to go out today and get a volume pedal and probably something for tremolo and distortion. It makes nizzling sound pretty good.
