    gadget guy,
    I have an HP turbine blade and fuel control fly weight bearing from the SouiX City Iowa crash. I was working in an FAA repair station when the APU showed up for rebuild. I recognised the logbook dates after the teardown and decided to hang on to a couple of pieces if history. The bearing is on my keychain and the blade in my watch box. The engine obviously got sent back in pieces with a no thanks note attached.

    Desertrat1, Is that something you would be willing to trade or sell? If not, can you at least post some pictures for us...

    Thanks,

    Well... It started out with me looking for titanium items for my keychain on Ebay. I saw a titanium turbine blade and was a little curious, so I ordered one and I was hooked from there on. I no longer keep them on my keychain (replaced by Prybaby), but I have a dedicated tool box that I store my collection in. There are so many different types that it makes for a fun and unusual collection. The prices on Ebay are a Joke now, so I don't buy too much anymore...

    Sea Fishing probably first and foremost, mainly from the shore but will get on a boat whenever the chance arrises.

    Golf as often as I can - which in a good month is probably twice as it is very expensive to play out here.

    Had my first go at clay pigeon shoting last weekend and loved it so would like to try and add that into the mix.

    Back home in the UK I used to go Camping a lot, less chance here but I go when I can.

    Used to play a lot of airsoft, but mainly as an excuse to collect tac gear. I don't play any more and left the Tac gear back in the UK as it probably wasn't wise to move to the middle east, with a shipping container full of US made molle gear.

    . . . and then of couse there is collecting shiny, bight and sharp things!
