    Light sabers

    I am kinda interested in purchasing a professional light saber. Not the cheap store bought kinda, but one of the cnc machined kinds. There are basically two shops that make them: https://saberforge.com/ https://ultrasabers.com/ They have bright l.e.d.s along with realistic sounds from the...

    Slides backup & restoration

    I think I am going to purchase the Epson Perfection v600 scanner. I have a lot of slides that my parents took of us growing up (apparently slides were the thing back in the day). But I want to start to get them scanned in before something happens to them and we lose them forever. It has some...

    RC Vehicles

    I think we have talked about this before on here. Seems like we all want to get one. Well I was at a hobby store yesterday, and I saw rock crawlers are pretty hot right now. So I picked up this little beast. Now if it would only quit raining so that I could go play with it...

    Flying kites

    I always had fun flying kites when I was a kid. I have a couple of cheap models for the kids, but recently bought a nice delta kite for myself. They are cheap these days. It's nice a fast to setup/put away, and has simple controls. You do see quite a few on along the coastal areas. There is just...

    Gold panning

    Has anyone ever gone gold panning before? I had some Amazon credit and since I live in the heartland for this I thought why not? I picked up some 14" pans and two snuffers to be able to though in the back of the car in case were out by a stream or something. Hey you never know!

    Declaration of intent (hobby-related)

    I have been losing weight again and have no plans for the future. I was 223 pounds in April. I started my diet on April 17th and am down to 185 today, which means I have lost 38 pounds as of today, July 19th. That's ~40 pounds in almost exactly 3 months. I'm not here to brag, just setting a...

    Watches

    Does anyone else have an unhealthy obsession with them? I have always loved them. Someday when I become rich I will have my Rolex. In the meantime I am addicted to others. Just picked up a new one. What do you think?
