Zebra are pretty well known for nice pens, Japanese made and good everyday writers.

 

I carry a pair of Zebra Z-grips and a rotring ticky pencil around with me for every day note taking. Cheap and (semi) disposable yet much better than a bic that leaks and fails all the time. My fountain pens are for hand in assignments and desk jewellery.

There is no better drafting pencil than Rotring 600 series.

Yeah that's something I love about the zebras is how reliable they are. I've owned four over the past 5 years, first one someone broke after a year (literally used all their strength to snap it in half), second one ran out after 2 years of usage, third one got stolen last year, and I'm on my 4th.

The Rotring 600 pencil is back on my college days, which is over 20 years ago and it still function like new. I have used it everyday for at least two years...

 Agreed, the Rotoring 600 and my Kohinoor Rapidomatic pencils are my go to mechanical pencils when I need them. Both built to last, both fits comfortably in my hand.

Honestly grab anything from the golden age that has the right output transformer, an amp is only as good as that piece.  Eico hf-20, hf-50, hf-33, Acrosound anything with TO-300 or TO-330 output.  Lots of deals to be had there and they will outperform most any modern amp.  People are catching on though and the prices are quickly jumping up.  The TO-330 is a legendary output that you can craft a push pull 300b amp around, fabulous sound.  Deal of the century would be a Radio Craftsmen RC-2...if you can find one, I think I've 5 pairs or so that I've collected over the years.  These amps have to be at least in the 60's though anything newer is not vintage ;)

Dealer demo Revel M106 monitors in walnut. These have only been available for a few months so there weren't many reviews for me to read, but I have a feeling that once major publishers put out reviews I'd be able to sell these for more than I paid for them. Also bought the matching B112 sub but it was damaged in shipping :mad:. These things are ridiculous. Easily up there as one of my most satisfying audio purchases of all time.

I love my Revel Performa speakers, they are great.  When I purchased them back around 8 years ago, it is fairly cheap.

for my other living room...decided to man up and get one of these.  

 

Got it for dirt cheap thanks to a vicious girl who just got divorced was selling her husband's stuff.  Looked up retail cost new and I paid 10% of what it really cost.  Came with cues, balls, rack, chalk, stand for holding everything, etc.  Just about everything I needed.

 

I profit from this.  :)

My buddy loves hockey so to see his son do such a thing was both amazing and alarming. The week before the kid pulled the emblem off the front of his Honda NSX. A strong three year old!
