    Even though the 3D printer was supposed to be my birthday present, my wife has been pushing for me to get new sunglasses for the last two weeks. She just custom built (with my help) these for me.

    Should be a bit better quality than that last pair. Unfortunately with the price to go with it.

    About 10 months ago I posted here's about a house I bought, it was an off the plan deal and was supposed to be done in 3 to 4 months. I only just settled last thursday, I'm happy with the result and I didn't pay stamp duty but the wait was horrible. Anyways, it's all good now .

    Urghh... an old hobby from 20 years ago comes back to haunt my bank balance and free time. 2 sets of 3 and 2 boxes of singles to complete a Kill Team.

    That's a nice fitbit watch.
    I had a fitbit, then stopped using it because the belt was creating a rash on my wrists.

    Too bad it doesn't display the correct time. Well, I guess it will be right twice a day. ;)

    The Commodore has been making a thumping noise in the rear over certain bumps for a little (okay long) while now. Rear bushes are stuffed. Was just going to replace them but new control arms weren't much more expensive. Better in the long run to replace the lot.

    Prints great, looks good and is inexpensive. Couldn't ask for better.

    I got sick of not having power when camping and since a gas powered inverter generator is both insanely expensive and overkill I got this.

    I charged a couple camera batteries and my phone with it and it's still at 100% charge. So it should have no problem lasting a weekend as that's about all it will be used for (along with powering a radio).

    Also purchased one of these for the same activity as some shade would be nice.

    Now to wait until June when I'll actually use both items.

    So I recently upgraded from my modern ryobi 10" table saw to an old Craftsman's model that is far more robust.

    I am going to reinstall the kerf blade and extension tables as well.
    I then ended up trading the ryobi for a scroll saw.

    Definitely happy to add one of these to my tool stable. I look forward to getting some time in on it.

    I have bought many things. They will be posted. These aren't even the only CD's that I've bought - I have two more coming in that I ordered online.

    But, this is what happens when you go hog wild in a twice yearly record sale.

    So I bought a 20 pound blanket last week. 21.6 lbs with the duvet cover. Been sleeping like a baby ever since.

    My wife has one and loves it. I don't see (or feel) the attraction of being held down while I sleep. To each their own!

    Fanatec US store + NZ Post's Youshop service = ClubSport shifter for about NZD$50 (inc international shipping) more than it costs for a TH8A locally. My G27 won't even know what hit it.

    2TB EVO 860. Once again, my luck with buying used stuff on eBay and actually getting it brand new wins the day. A frugal $218.

    Pick set, Xacto knife, epoxy and not pictured, Bondo, sandpaper, primer and spray paint. All for the printed stuff.

    Getting to be a lot of stuff for these but at least everything is fairly inexpensive.

    Got a bike! Been many a year since I've seriously rode a mountain bike (used to do downhilling and some cross country/ trail stuff in my late teens/ early twenties). It's a Trek Marlin 5, just your (relatively) cheap and basic 29er, hard-tail, starter bike. Now, I just need to get a bike rack of some sort for my Fiesta...
