    Sale thread/ Hosts/Heat Sinks/Focus adapters/lasers

    Yea i tried to capture it as closely as I could. Maybe a little more blue but likely 490nm or pretty close. Beautiful color. Makes me miss my argens I had to leave behind when I moved.

    I haven't been around this forum for a long time, but when I heard of the new 490nm diodes I couldn't resist and of course Rich was up for the task. Thanks for your hard work and patience!

    Anyone Wet Shave?

    In my opinion the greatest benefit would be the fact that there are options and combinations of blades and razors that would specifically to a thicker beard per se. In terms of what shaving with thick facial hair I would say getting a slant razor is what they call it where is physically twist...

    The blades themselves then sure even if they are new old stock. Most older blades were made from steel if they were stored in less than ideal conditions even in the box any moisture will rust a blade and you wouldn't want that on your face. However if there are no signs of rusthe on the blade...

    Anyone Wet Shave?

    ANot excuse to go somewhere is always a good excuse, but yea the sharpest blades you can buy are Feather blades which for some people eat their face up. My favorite just blade is the gillette 7o"clock green blades. They are also a lot cheaper in bulk. About $13- $16 for 100 blades. There also a...

    Anyone Wet Shave?

    That's odd on the gillette handle situation. They never really changed the threads on the heads or handles. Vintage razors are cheap enough whole as it is anyway. Can get a decent vintage gillette for about $20. The biggest thing also come down to blades as well. I'm still burning through blades...

    Anyone Wet Shave?

    Did you ever try to figure out the reason you'd break out? Possibly something in whatever soap you'd use? Just a thought. Being as the neck on anyone is a sensitive area I occasionally get some irritation after a shave, but as long as I use an aftershave with witch hazel it clears up within a...

    Anyone Wet Shave?

    Electric razors never really interested me all that much. Only thing electric I use is a trimmer for when I grow a beard. I would usually use cartridge razor before, but just decided to give a safety razor a try. Cost me about $60 to get started and haven't looked back. 2 passes with a safety...

    Anyone Wet Shave?

    It's not difficult at all really and does provide an excellent shave. The razor i started with only took me 2 days to figure out the technique. My issue is i recently bought a new razor made of all stainless steel and it is twice as heavy if not more than the razor i started so i'm still...

    Anyone Wet Shave?

    Been a while since I've posted anything on here. I have since strayed from the laser hobby (still have my 2 labbies though) due to my girlfriend living with me now and being less than enthusiastic about them. It's understandable when it's something that has been casted in such bad light...

    In a pickle, car pickle. Help!?!

    As other have said in the thread the miss fire is just going to be a wire or coil or cap and rotor depending on how old it is. Easy fix you could even do yourself. And 600s is plenty of credit. In terms of car loans they look more at how much money you make and what other payments you currently...

    In a pickle, car pickle. Help!?!

    I recently went through the process of getting a car loan and purchasing a vehicle not too long ago. Not too bad of a process. I got a credit card from a credit union with no previous credit. Built my credit for a year and then went for a loan. All I did was bring some pay stubs in to show my...
