My large Green Egg
My Field Co. #8 #10 Cast Iron Skillets
My two pairs of Meindl boots
That's going to make a dandy still!
Perfect for ... Carpool Lanes!
That's a classic.
The thought had crossed my mind but it’s aluminum- so no acidic worts in that pot. I have my eye on a stainless system though...
Diawa 450H reels
Mitchel 300 reels
Win mod 94 in .375 win
1898 Springfield 30/40 Craig
Never had a bad Honda either
That is a GREAT looking motorcycle!
A Blackhawk in .45 LC will make you smile. You just can't help it.
I love the feel and precision of my 2 Torque wrenches.
Smaller 3/8" 8-60 Nm Beta for the bikes and 1/2" Stahlwille 40-200 Nm for the bigger stuff.
Quatro 16" insulated rubber boots by Skellerup. They came from a dairy supply but I use them daily for walking miles on wet grass. Easy on/off but great fit, room up front but not sloppy and no heel slip. Enough volume for a full length insoles and warm socks. Not too hot on mild evenings but warm enough on cold winter nights. Wouldn't be great for really uneven ground and certainly not moto boots but fantastic for my uses.
I don't think we've seen a computer/laptop listed, either...or maybe I missed it along the way.
I value my phone and laptop as tools that make my life easier and my job possible (at least, the way I want to do it). However, I consider them to be consumable goods, to be replaced semi-regularly, and not "well-made things". I hope that makes sense.
My 80 year-old dad made the pieces for me in the pics below. (Kitchen ‘table’, nightstands, headboard.)
The only thing you missed is the quality. The earlier boots one pair would easily last 8 years of constant use. Now made outside of AU.
How could I say this...
I hate you!!!
You have company my friend. It's OK.
My penis. Use it a lot for various things. I abuse the damn thing a lot and just keeps on working so it must be made pretty well. Just gives my great joy.
Sorry. No pics.
It took 6 pages? Sheesh. The standards around here are slipping.
Edit.. Sorry, forgot I was up in the civilized floors. Please carry on.
- Cheap-ish pair of Kenneth Cole boots bought off a dept. store sale rack years ago when I got my first motorcycle. Still my favorite pair of riding boots -- rebuilt a couple of times and used for adventures on three continents (shown in my avatar picture after their first tour of the Himalayas).
- Merlin Agilis titanium road bicycle, fifteen years and counting
- BMW G650 XCountry, tweaked and adjusted until it fits just right
- Cruz tools BMW-specific tool roll -- I can pretty much disassemble and rebuild the XCountry with them.
- Wolfman waterproof soft panniers
- iPad mini circa 2014
- Old pair of Patagonia pants with countless mendings
Surprisingly hard to come up with a list of great things I own that are just right and last forever. Most things seem built to be disposable.
My 1970 Submariner I bought new and gave to my son after 40 years of everyday use.
An original ‘73 I was given for next to nothing.
A one year old ‘72 airhead I had for 17 years.
My current everyday watch, an Alpinist.
Glad I was able to enjoy these.....
Very nice but I'd like to see a pic of yours, the real thing.....Thanks to your Dad for his service.
I love my Shun chef knives. They have been very good to me over the years.
My 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 has been a damn good truck. It now has over 200K miles on the clock.
As mentioned earlier, my old Craftsman cools. I bought a starter set in 1980. I likely won't buy a modern Craftsman tool any more. They are no better than anything you can get at Lowes, and they are not cheap.
