Bought it a few days ago. Installation in 100 deg heat. Great for weight loss.
I managed to track down the details for it, finding two production versions in museum collections. It dates to 1930, which quite surprised me.
Doesn't appear to have changed much in nearly 90 years.

Paying a guy in Japan to stick these in my arm a few hundred times.

New camera, new strap and few other random accessories
Smiths gyro auto pilot from a Vulcan bomber XM655.
This is a Vulcan, the UK's nuclear strategic bomber from the '50s onward. What a great design.
The Vulcan was one of my childhood obsessions. Will never forget the first time I saw one and wandered around under it's enormous wing.
Anyway, mundane stuff, with doggo content. Anyone got any better ideas of getting varnish off decking than lancing it?
Found at the bottom of eBay, whilst looking for other things, a quantity of 1966/1967 USAF Pilotage Charts.
Complete with annotations, pen marks, grease spots, and coffee spills.
Personal Weather Station. The Ambient Weather WS-2902A. Setup was simple, configuring it to connect to the internet was a little more involved. Partly because I had it too close to the grill on the deck, partly because their software is shite. It comes with the monitoring unit itself plus a color tablet for viewing conditions. Once you've connected to the internet, however, there are apps like Weather Underground that will let you monitor your extremely localized (backyard) weather. And if you make the dashboard public, your PWS joints the grid of home meteorologists' weather stations and can be viewed by anyone.
If anyone wants to see the weather at Lake Arrowhead in Denville NJ, use the WU app on your smartphone to search for KNJDENVI22.

I bought a 2008 R32 this weekend
An EJ 89 DE razor since my old razor broke when I dropped it on the floor.
A wooden bench for the yard made from a beautiful piece of reclaimed wood from an old boat.
I bought a cooling coat for my dog to help her cope with this record heatwave we are having. Fifty quid off Amazon. It’s worked too. 30 minutes after it arrived, the sky darkened, the wind got up, thunder, lightning and rain. Typical!
Send that coat over to me! We could use some rain; there's been two or three light showers since early May
What a nice condition!
Turbo S is indeed a rare breed in the family of 996.
The value keeps increasing especially those with low mileage!
I have a standard Turbo and loving each minute driving the car.
The little Olasonic CD transport upper right. Was using a cheap Sony bluray but it didn’t have any indicator about track number, etc, as is meant to be used with TV for interface. Drove the wife nuts, even if worked fine otherwise. Been going more digital streaming lately but too many CD’s to rip them all, and still enjoy handling them, so need a spinner for now. Can get into passionate arguments on other forums regarding the merits of various digital devices and whether or not they affect sound quality but can tell you the improvement in sound quality with this transport versus the old is noticeable even to my wife, who would argue it’s all ones and zeros and shouldn’t matter what reads and decodes them. She loves the device (it’s small and cute, as expected for a JDM-targeted product, and dense!) so I will refrain from telling her what it cost! Half-width Parasound dac/headphone amp next to it for size comparison.
Didn't buy it, made it. Never ever will I do something like this again. Old wood was cupped and needed planed down. New wood was thick and needed planed down. Lots and lots of cuts. the only good thing about it was it raised my skill level from a 3 to a 5.
