    Sadly arrived in the incorrect size (I had ordered 32mm), so waiting on a new shipment. :(

    2 wall mounted broom/mop racks. There are a few downstairs in the basement that are constantly in the way or getting knocked over. I will be using 1 1/4" dowels, and it bothered my CDO genes to have the wood dowels with blunt ends. So of course, the only reasonable thing to do was to order wooden bits and bobs from the other side of the globe :frantic:(although part of that is because Amazon doesn't list shipping orgin for their merchants).

    ATB,

    I've been looking for a decent local brand for a while now, and while there are one or two based here in England, I've not really been overly impressed with them (read: "Meh"):sleep:.

    So, look further afield. I've used Field Notes, Moleskine, and other major brands, as well as rite-in-the-rain, but really wanted something I could easily obtain closer to home.

    Enter stage right, Calepino, in France. The paper's excellent, takes pen (biro and rollerball), pencil, even fountain pen very well indeed (not much ink bleeding at all!) and their perpetual diary is magnificent :) Needless to say, this is now my go-to notebook brand. They even do my preferred dot grid format!

    So, received this morning from Pocket Notebooks (www.pocketnotebooks.co.uk), two packs of notebooks by Calepino of France, one 3 x dot grid, the other their 3 x Perpetual Diary. And two packets of sweets as a freebie! Nice one, folks, really REALLY fast service :D
    Oh yeah, and nicely addressed too - it's official, folks, I'm AWESOME! :rofl::bounce:

    Let us know how these work for you. Price wise, easy purchase. I've always wondered how functional they are. Looks like they are made for quick use, not super reusable. Disposable?

    Exactly , I have them tucked away in FAK/E&E kits, and a razor in the Molle visor panel in my car. I am tempted to try out the saw on some scraps of common materials to test it out.

    Just ordered a Streamlight Protac 1L-1AA to save my HDS's from being used so much, and a lot cheaper in case I lose it.

    Never mind. I was going to ask what it is but I noticed on the board it says WiFi? So I guess it is a WiFi router (pocket size) or hub or the like?

    L'chaim!
