    Probably the second best color way of BB behind RPG.

    A Dober BB with OD Green G10 Panels is almost enough for me to buy one...almost

    $63.95 from FT but if you have any issues with it you might be SOL. Provapes may be an option for warranty stuff if you contact them but that's not a guarantee if you don't buy from them.

    Awwww! Flip it! I'm sticking with the BBs! I may yet get a Bantam at some point, maybe V2 with a DNA Go chip (if they will make one, just wishful thinking):vino:

    FT has it for less than that but heeding THE SHADY one's wise words, I think I'd rater buy it States side just in case it craps out.

    I'll help ya out there Brew...


    $75 is half way to another set of stones for your WE! ;)


    Also, on a side note... Hope ya have $475 when you go to Blade West... can pick up your Sebenza 31 at the CRK table

    $550 is the price for Large 31's with all but 2 style inlays, the other 2 types cost $600
    $450 is the price for a Large 31 PJ

    THEN


    There is the Blade West Special CRKs... which will run about $800 lol

    I would like to get the Blade Special but knowing me, I could never just keep it in a box and look at it. I always buy blades I can and do use. I understand the "collector" mentality but could never abide by it. I buy something to use it, even if infrequently, not to look at it. So, more than likely it will be the $475 ones I'm looking at and the $450 ones if I have enough left for a second one or a small PJ Inkosi.

    I’m the same...why the 31 will be a PJ or simple inlay like Micarta for me...

    Still like the Inkosi more than the 31 even though I haven’t held one...

    They still have the pivot bushing...not a bad thing, just prefer the adjustable solid pivot and larger washers

    I can understand that, I only have an el cheapo Sebenza 21 wannabe with D2 blade (at least I hope it is D2) from fleabay. I like the size and even though it isn't on the same continent with the real one, it is functional and found a home on the work bench. I promised myself there will be no beer drinking while at the show.....

    Seriously, WTF is going on with USPS?! This is the fourth package to take some crazy-ass route or arrive late!

    I thought maybe it had something to do with Dorian but that has no effect on the West Coast, typically it wouldn't go anywhere near the storm, and and it's been happening for two weeks now which is long before that could even be a factor. [​IMG]

    It went through fuckerton (Fullerton), that’s about as sure of it going the wrong way as rain being wet.

    And the funny thing is...


    From a north south perspective..

    Fullerton is the next town north of Anaheim

    the main post office of Anaheim is literally 2 blocks from Fullerton...

    I am starting to believe they are vaping bong water and the main criteria to hire the sorting people at the post office is their IQ has to match their shoe size!

    My coil making work bench is blocked by a ton of crap at this time:gaah: Where can I get decent N80 coils (fused, 28 or 30 gauge)? Advanced Vape Supply has mostly SS coils.

    Thanks, I just ordered my favorite gauges from lightning, they should be here in a couple of days. I wanted the ready made coils (being lazy) but I have the drills and all (remodeling projects) and I used to make my own but was being lazy. I can spin a few coils in a minute but my wires and stuff are blocked by a load of crap.

    Finally got around to this today after Hurricane prep yesterday.
    First build wanted to try the smallest insert and chimney. Proper tight as knats ass draw. Did a round wire 2mm 28g SS contact coil. Bottom legs, straight from clamps, Pushed down just a smidge.
    Bridge a little tight fit through the boro orings. Next time should be a bit easier having a feel for it.
    Pretty damn impressed but it's early.
    Next build will try the middle chimney size and a 28/36 which would make it closer to the build and chimney in my vapeshell.

    Wicking was super easy just like the shell.
    Just did same as Todd, fluff the tails, cut even, juice and worked them around perimiter of holes, push the middle in a bit.

    Taking a look back,I can see that you are showing off the Xeta! Is that gnat's ass a tiny, tight ass kinda draw? I don't know if you have the MF bridge with the MTL kit, but if you do, I use the single hole adapter and it is the perfect MTL draw for me. I know draw is a very subjective thing and what some consider loose MTL is a perfect DL for me, so..... I just hope it is a tight draw as in what I call a tight draw. Enjoy the hell out of your XETA:vino:

    Not a bad price... if it stays at that price.

    Small PJs average about 310-325 and small Micartas about 335-375


    Mentioned already, if you're really wanting a small 21... I'd sell you my 21 Micarta Insingo

    I know you did and I appreciate the offer. I tried an insigo-like blade and didn't quite got along with it, granted it was a crkt . I was playing with it and my nephew liked so I gave it to him. I went back to the Kershaw cryo.

    That looks like my post office. They use the three day route for a one day delivery.
    Someone needs to teach these morons how to read a map.

    The entire month of a August has been like this for me. I just don't get it.
    I swear USPS is messing with me. This is 4 our of the last five packages that's been delayed or taken some stupid route. I'm starting to take it personally

    The USPS is too busy making deliveries for Amazon to worry about simple peons like us. They should let Amazon organize and run USPS!

    I read somewhere that Amazon could, and should, buy USPS. In truth, they've been letting me down lately too.
