My name is Bob, I'm from Ohio. I graduated from Ohio State with a degree in mechanical engineering. I submitted my resume to Oakley, but I never heard from them. It was worth a shot, right?

I guess it all started back when I was a kid admiring my favorite baseball players who of course sported M Frames. I wrote a kiddy letter to Oakley and they were kind enough to send back a few ads, planting a seed for eternity.

I?d never really considered collecting until my status crossed over from full time student to full time employee. Having some expendable cash helped me take the plunge.

I always enjoy getting to know fellow reviewers, so say hi if you have time.

Are we guessing that $10k of each will be going towards that $140,000 foundation donation. Leaves Oakley with $4k for the trouble, which is 33% more than the Gold OTT for two X-Metals. Still not interested, but if it's a charity thing, then I could see it in a different light. - Dann

That was my thought when I saw the numbers. If my mental math switch is toggled on, that's the only way to read that. I wonder how many of the 14 pairs are handouts like the ones Lillard was wearing. He wears number zero, so perhaps 20 years from now we'll see serial number zero through 13.... or through 14.

I do sort of complement my Oakley collecting by grabbing digital catalogs, and of course fleshing out the DB, so who knows. - Dann

No! No... don't compare your humanitarian work of art that we all enjoy to this. Where are the timelines, the scans of old print, the spotlights, the PW shots, the display setups? Not even in the same ballpark!

Nice video. Did I see a clip in there from Top Gun?

SS 106. I can only assume there are at least 5-6 of these out there then, right?

No problems there. A perfect Splice collection doesn't need changing.
Dec 31, 2020 1:29 PM
How many Splices have changed in your collection since then? I feel like it's been relatively unchanged for these past ten years.

But how it the nose piece attached?

I don't know why, but something about this makes me think of the Fatcat orbital. They're obviously different, but I can't shake the connection.

Marcellus! You've got the original PW down pat. Carrying the banner proudly!

I have Plex setup on it, but I'm not 100% sold. I already use Kodi on my SkyStream android box, which is connected to a local HD. I setup a regular SMB network path and it pulled my content into that without issue, so I may stick with it. I generate all the metadata anyway with a small freeware program, so it's all organized. Plex keeps crashing on that device too, but works on my phone and laptop. I may just keep both running, since it doesn't hurt. - Dann

In the years I've been using Synology for our home's media, there's only been a handful of movie files that I couldn't natively stream from it, and it was the TV's fault every time. I've heard enough bad stories of Plex not working that I've never even tried it. I was just curious how green your side of the fence looked. Thanks for the info.

Do you plan to use the native apps, DHCP? Or do you plan to Plex?

I thought we would have had the weight of the splice documented somewhere... either here or here or in the database, but I don't see it anywhere.

Anyone have any other weight threads?

For my kitchen knives I use a stone set to sharpen and then a honing steel to help them hold an edge after I use them a few times. I know someone with a large pocket knife collection and he only uses stones when restoring a blade. If it's not in poor condition he uses a leather strop to keep them in top shape.

Yeah, I'm surprised to see the older pieces there, but I like the fact they included them. This looks like a nice store. They even added a funny car!
May 20, 2020 1:58 PM
Yeah, that's a surprising find! It looks like the nose is yellowing a bit, but the frame looks very crisp. Do you know if the frame is original to the lens?

Says the guy who just bought one with pocket change!

It's the San Juan Metros - a bunch of MLB players participated in the Central American winter leagues in the off season.

I saw this somewhere on the web and thought I would revive this thread. Not sure, but I'm dating it anywhere from 1991-94. The early M Frame gave me some major nastalgia.

Welcome Paul. Glad to have you here.

Is there a fansite that is recommended for selling and trading?

Aug 28, 2019 12:33 PM
I saw a much smaller report on this yesterday and neither of them answered the one question I have. What medical situations would warrant an exception? Migraines is the only thing I can guess.

For completeness, I'd like to add that all rings true for the C Wire as well: o-review.com/database_detail_model.php?ID=41

Any other wire models from this time period?
Jul 23, 2019 1:03 PM
We're glad you found it too Mike! Welcome.

Tough to tell from that image, but is the iris piece a threaded bolt? I never would have guessed that from the first images in this thread.
