    I just made these for one of your established members. It amazes me that there is a whole world of EDC that I never knew about. The pocket in the bottom houses a 10mm compass. More to follow...

    Second project.  This one has built-in spools to hold fishing line and cord (or whatever), and houses a 14mm compass in the bottom pocket.

    Thanks for looking. Oh, yeah, these are both Titanium.

    I'm not yet qualified (only a few posts) to do that. However, I'd eventually like to if there is interest. I don't want to jump the gun and tick anyone off. I'm an active member of a machinist bbs and we all hate it when someone with 1 post starts spamming the site with whatever crap he is selling. I don't want to be that guy.

    I can't take credit for any of this innovation. All of the credit for innovation goes to your very own Chief-Yeah. I'm just a basement metal muncher. You dream it, I'll [try to]build it.

    Times like these make me wish I'd done mechanical engineering instead...

    Economics.

    I want to make things with my hands...

    Or maybe it wouldn't seem as fun if I were actually doing MEng eh...

    Well, I'm an ME/EE, but I spend most days in front of the computer. I took up machining and blacksmithing to fill that void to which you allude. Sometimes pushing a mouse around a desk is not terribly rewarding, no matter what all the 1's and 0's in the humming box think. :matrix:

    I guess you're talking about the simulation models...

    But you also do CNC, which is sweet... But there's a little hands-on blacksmith in each one of us I guess ;)

    Well, I now have 25 posts, so I can officially offer to sell these and other stuff on this site. I'll post some stuff in the commerce section, but I'm a home-shop guy who'll build anything you can dream up. Can't find it anywhere else? Drop me a message! I'll fab from scratch or modify your existing hardware.
