I actually read the article for a while, I was just curious what the case was made of. (it's coated steel) I got to the point where the guy says he "designed a new dial"... Wait what? I think I've seen that dial design somewhere before. :think: :shrug:
I thought it was a Unimatic at first.

What were they thinking?

They were the greatest generation! When I hear the "Make America Great Again" statement I always think of those times and the sacrifices they went thru to make America what it is.

One reason it pisses me off when people get so offended and butt hurt by that.
