P698 Glock 26 Style Spring Pistol Review and Some Addendum Thoughts

Wow! This P698 Glock 26 Style Spring Pistol is really a nice little piece and has a lot going for it, especially in this price range of spring airsoft guns. First, the overall appearance is pleasing, if not entirely accurate with regard to the surface texture variations between the slide and molded grip-frame which would be typical of the real Glock. There are very noticeable molding lines on the trigger, slide, frame and magazine base, but in this price range this is to be expected.

Also, the gun is pictured with an orange colored muzzle end slide face, but as supplied comes with a full length black slide and orange barrel extending approx 1/4 to 5/32 inches beyond the slide, which I at least find more attractive. The picture also indicates ‘COMBAT DELTA’ and 9×19 indented into the left slide face, but mine arrived ‘smooth’.

So….how does it feel and … Read More

Futons – Studying The Men, The Patents And The Inventions Behind This Fascinating Furniture Category

Having worked in furniture for many years I am always fascinated by the accomplishments of those who create innovation in new furniture products. The category that has most fascinated me over the years is in the way of futon frame designs. Studying early futon frame designs gives us an interesting visualization of how early futons have influenced the modern designs we see today in a category that was relatively unknown until the last decade. Futons as a furniture category have only existed for about the last 25 years. In that time however they have worked their way from being specialty store furniture into mass merchant and big box stores alike who offer varying brands and qualities of these frames. In this article I’ll provide you an overview of the early pioneers of the futon industry and their inventions and innovations for various futon designs from the beginning along with references … Read More

Chevy Classics!

Chevrolet used to have an advertising campaign that touted, “Baseball, apple pie, and Chevrolet.” Supposedly, General Motor’s largest division attempted to indoctrinate consumers into believing that a Chevrolet was as mainstream as Main Street, USA. In many ways this campaign worked. For generations now the Chevrolet division has been serving up cars that have been snapped up by Americans, particularly those seeking their first car. Let’s take a look at three Chevy classics that have shaped the respected US automaker.

Corvette – In 1953, the Chevy Corvette was released and the auto market hasn’t been the same since. This two seat ragtop paved the way for greater and lesser cars to enter the US market including Chevy’s own Camaro and Chevelle; Pontiac’s Firebird and GTO; Ford’s Thunderbird and Mustang; the Dodge Charger; Plymouth ‘Cuda; AMC Javelin; Datsun 240Z; and a host of other cars. For over 50 years, the limited … Read More

How to Travel Cheaply In Australia

I’ve lost track of how many people that have told me that Australia is an expensive place to travel. They must be living the luxury lifestyle if that’s the case. Australia, if anything was one of the cheapest places I have ever travelled round, so much so that I made bucketloads of money when I was there, indeed enough to take 4 months off work. People, and particularly young backpackers are clearly going to the wrong spots, or perhaps ill-informed, badly prepared or simply spending money in the wrong way. Here’s 12 reasons to prove the myth wrong, all from my own experience of living in Australia:

Camping out – cheap and cheerful

1. Sleeping – Although hostels are great, take a break from them. Don’t be spending your entire time in hostels getting drunk! Camping is the best option for travelling cheap in Australia. A tent can be bought … Read More

Blending With Aloha Spirit

I arrived in Honolulu after 12 hours flight and a stop of 12 hours in Seoul where I was a temporary guest at the Hyatt Regency in the outskirts of Seoul; had a Korean ‘Nouvelle Cuisine’ Lounge style buffet lunch in a rather minimalist environment surrounded by glass and icy cold breeze where the steam of hot noodle soups looked like warmth from heaven. The arrival at Honolulu airport was quite different and the connection with the Pacific Ocean breeze immediately captured my attention, as did the Polynesian smiles and the rhythm of life. After the encounter with the engineer who build houses on the Moon and Mars I quickly realized I was going to be away from pollution, far away from the closest mainland, away from duality: the Islands of Hawaii are a bounty-full experience of beauty, oneness with the Universe codes of respect for nature, the unseen, the … Read More

The Death of "RG" Coaxial Cable and the Rise of the Times Microwave Standard

It’s important not to confuse coaxial cables made to current Military Specifications (M17/75 or Mil Spec) with those now simply labeled as “RG”. In order to regulate and develop specifications for coaxial cable used during WWII the Government adopted a series of cable designations taken from the Radio Guide and know as “RG” to define coaxial cable type, size and construction. Unlike current Mil Spec coax which must meet tough specific criteria, RG coax made today meets only the standards of the company producing it. While all RG cables of a certain name may be the same size, RG does not define construction standards of even materials in many cases. In the Ham and Amateur Radio world RG continues to be used mainly to define cable size and type due to the years it was an accepted standard. These types of coax cable were once all listed in the MIL-HDBK-216 … Read More

Benefits Of Using A Sheepskin Car Seat Cover

If you want to add more comfort and style to your car, then you might want to invest on a high quality seat cover. One of your best bets would be seat cases made from sheepskin. They are comfortable in ways you could not imagine, and they’re very stylish to boot.

Seat covers made from other materials cannot even compare to the benefits that sheepskin covers can offer. For instance, custom leather seat cases may add class and sharpness to your car’s interior but they do not really give you that much-needed comfort factor. Seat covers made from leather are not well-cushioned to begin with and if you include outside factors like cold and hot weather, the effects are almost unbearable. Sheepskin seat covers, on the other hand, offer a more regulated temperature, meaning you will have no worries about being roasted or frozen in your seat during extreme temperatures.… Read More
