Best non watch purchases of the past 12 months

Yep. Here’s all you use when you make your own bread in a breadmaker. It’s important to put the dried yeast in first, then flour, then water especially if you are doing it on a timer - you don’t want the yeast to get wet before the ingredients are mixed.

The model I have has a separate yeast dropper, keeping the Yeast dry until the optimum time.  It also has a seed dropper so they don't all end up at the bottom of the loaf.

 

And the Eve mattress is like a rock.  Two bad nights sleep so far, one more and they can take it back!

I’m going to add this, although it’s four purchases in one. I do love Hi-Fi but listening time is limited to late night, so I bought a little headphone system. 

Audioquest Dragonfly Red DAC

Audioquest Jitterbug

Beresford Capella headphone amplifier

Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro headphones 

a sublime combination, perfectly balanced, weighty yet light on its feet, supremely detailed but not fatiguing, musical but even. With an Audioquest interconnect and Apple Thunderbolt 3 to USB 3.0 converter, it cost around £600.

I built a little stand for it too. :)

SWEET...!    :thumbs_up:

Cheers man. I went to the local ‘discount and garden stuff’ shop, know as Cherry Lane. It consists of a couple of little hinged wooden boxes (dismantled) and three wooden placemats. Not really Hi-Fi but it means I can carry it around the house. This and my 2017 MacBook Pro is all I need for mega toons! :laugh:

I have the HW100T, fantastic bit of kit. :thumbsup:

Got permission to shoot on and around the farm, so me and the pup are usually up and about on my days off, pigeon mostly but occasionally get some greys.

I have a Venom tuned and blued HW35 that was on a very plain walnut export stock, Bought this Luxus stock off Facebook, It was advertised as simply 'A HW35 stock', I could make out the flat bottom and no finger grooves along with the raised comb from the fuzzy pic, I was amazed at the grain on it when it arrived!!, It was just £40 posted!!

A Hasselbald 500 ELM with 50mm Distagon, 80mm Planar and 150mm Sonnar lenses

I've wanted one for 40 years and this year I realised that tempus fugit..

Oh, and a pair of BSA Ultras, a Webley Mk3, and a Brocock. I needed them.

Any purchase that involves cake or bread is worthy of my money.  The bread maker is good and an honourable thing, but a cheeky trip to Greggs does it for me. Its sad I know but my life is always happy after a belgian bun.

I do a little bit of diversification, despite the 710 opinion that all my money goes on watches :biggrin: and the fact I don't favour gold on watches I do like a bit of golden shimmer on theses :biggrin:

It is the Mavic Pro, I have taken loads of footage but only put one together so far, actually one of my first flights..

Google did it on my phone for me, I had saved one of the files to the phone as well as the drone and this was created for me.

 

This was filmed using a cheapo Chinese 'go-pro' type of camera ( I have also dived with it). It was edited using MS movie maker, however, youtube ripped the music straight out of it.  B4st4rds

That looks in outstanding condition, the Selenium meter looks wonderful!:biggrin:

I started out in medium format with a Lubitel 166, progressed to a Minolta Autocord and thence to a Bronica ETRS.

I still use a Leningrad 7 light meter to evaluate the output of LED light bulbs, it doesn't need to be accurate, just consistent.

Which it always seems to have been.:wink:
