    I got a waffle breakfast made with the sweet Farberware waffle iron I bought from Walmart yesterday for $25.00.

    Works great, got the belly full real quick too.

    I also got something from a dollar store that i can't share just yet, since it going to be a "contender" in Withak's contest.

    I didn't get a chance to try the remaining little fork from the potato masher, but there's always tomorrow.

    I got some awesome ammo and large piece of transparent armor. The ammo is 12 of the small 0.6875" steel balls, 12 of the large .875" steel balls, 2 of the 1" high density ceramic balls and 1 1.3125" medium density ceramic ball.

    The armor is the stuff that is pressed between the glass when making bullet proof glass. It's the stuff that catches the bullets, it is very light and pretty tough. it should make some interesting SS projects. The piece is 42" long 10" tall and 1.75" thick.

    It looks like it is poly-carbonate If it is then it should be very flexible when something hard hits it, it is used in safety glasses also. But acrylic is also used in bullet proof glass. Fun fact about acrylic you can polish it easily with a torch. Just wave the torch on the Acrylic a few swipes and it gives a really nice gloss. Very "Shinny"

    Got a Kukri I ordered ages ago. Its been delayed for loads of reasons including the annoying and pointless VCR act. Ah well, its here now. Not the most expensive but great weight to it and really comfy.

    That looks like a great buy, i think, not so much of a knife enthousiast :p i do like the kukri shape and style, especially with a modern handle like this :)

    I used to be terrible for buying cheap unsuitable knives so I'm trying to get one or two decent tools that I can actually use and will last. That's why I put the axe thread up the other day. My old machete is coming to the end of its life and this is a really nice replacement :) I'll admit, it was seeing Joergs kukri thread that decided me on this blade shape :eek:

    I like the shape of that one, kinda halfway between a Kukri and a Machete it should give you the best of both worlds.
    Nice grab Scoobs
