Re: Face Masks - technical, non-political issues

Suggestive evidence includes studies on cruise ships where all passengers wore surgical masks, and all crew wore N95. The rate of asymptomatic infection was 81%, whereas on other cruise ships without universal masking the rate was 20%. Just to make sure I understand what you're saying there... On t...

Re: What Did You Hone Today?

I did Friodur #6 today, with red narra scales. They have faded over the last ten years and are now an orange like canned tomato soup, but the malachite wedge is still a very pretty green!

Re: Face Masks - technical, non-political issues

People wear surgical masks all day long and have no issues with hypoxia. That's nonsense. Face shields hinder the deposition of macro-droplets from sneezes and coughs from going in your eyes, but unless combined with a mask, offer no protection from those in the air you inhale around the sides of th...

Re: Error message when posting

I've seen it occasionally, but like Gary I find the post has been accepted anyway (I open a new tab and look at the forum/thread concerned).

I'll mention it to Vince.

The Rodgers, homemade soap, Simpson E3, Trumper Eau de Cologne: SOTD140920.jpg A very nice shave, so I'll replace these scales with celluloid rot, and clean up the damage done by that while the blade is out of the scales. And while looking through a drawer for some scales, I came across a Boker King...

Re: SOTD September 7 - September 13, 2020

I might note that the headgear of the Wilkinson Sword cavalryman does not match that worn by the 4th or 13th Light Dragoons, 17th Lancers, or the 8th or 11th Hussars, which between them constituted the 'Light Brigade' at the time of the Crimean War. I think it resembles that of the Royal Scots Greys...

Tommy, Quadrophenia, and The Wall. no collection is complete without them. Don't start me on Pink Floyd. Incredible stuff. No need. Pink Floyd make The Who appear like a teenage school band.

Re: What Did You Hone Today?

And for light relief, I came across this Rodgers extra hollow that when last seen had no rust. Sadly, it has some pitting now around the pivot point and where the point touches the scales. A quick sniff tells us what's going on - acrid chemical odour - celluloid rot. I scraped off the worst of the a...
