    My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

    One day to play and not only is it torrential downpour right now but family member needed the car. Sucks because the next game I would go to is when the folks are on vacation so I have to stay home and watch the dogs and house. Missed the weekend before when it was nice out because of the same reason (they were on a trip up north for the weekend). Meanwhile work is in a maelstrom atm due to several people leaving/retiring so there is that fear of the future. During my shift on Friday I started getting the existential crisis thoughts again. Folks there told me I'm stressing out too much and going to have a heart attack.

    Gunmane's Gearbox Woes

    Apologies for the necropost, but figured I'd best type this in my own topic rather than just post it in status bar. Been tinkering around with my main kalash's gearbox with some new shs 12:1 gears I got yesterday. Originally had 16:1 ones previously. Spring is a shs m110, piston is shs blue 14 teeth, most everything else is shs or stock bits, and motor is a shs high torque (see image, it's what I have in most of my replicas save for the cyma ak105 that still uses its stock motor). Getting roughly 355 fps/1.48 joules with .25s (so hovering around the 400 fps with .2s limit here for full auto aegs. Shim job and aoe probably not the best in the world, nukefet hasn't blown up yet, but I get the fear the motor might heat up too much/leading to much worse if I was to abuse full auto or spam semi too much. Much of what I've looked up around the internet is folks saying "yeah, my shs high torque motor/12:1 gear setups is pulling a m120/30/40 just fine at high rps!!!" but they are all using 11.1v lipos (and personally I'm not looking to make it crazy like that, just wanted to see if I got some more zing for the gear change). I've got a m95 spring that I ordered to possibly throw into the bizon (since the asg green spring refuses to settle below 350 fps for me), but I am wondering if it would be better to try it in my main kalash's gearbox to see if the load on the motor is lightened, though I fear it might overspin/pme due to being a much lighter spring. Anyways, there's my rambling for the evening.

    Airsoft Stuff You Just Bought

    Items that arrived this weekend and today. Sposn New Gen Boonie in SS-Spring (wish they made more stuff in this camo) and today the Splav M23 that might be from 2002. About the only positive thing about today really (if you've seen my rant in my eyes! thread).

    My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

    So, I'm *fruitcage*ed up right now for some reason. Went to work feeling fine, towards end of morning meeting I start feeling some gas pain, figure if it doesn't go away I'll just go to the restroom. Then I start feeling lightheaded. Head for the restroom. Proceeded to have diarrhea and then fall off the toilet mid black out, only came to because my right leg began to muscle spasm and the pain stirred me from the fog. Large skin tear on my head, bruises over body, had to clean the floor and toilet naturally. Bosses see I'm pale as a ghost and deem me unfit to work or drive myself home so I had to get mother to pick me up. Been in bed most of the day now and any attempts to eat (to combat possible blood sugar issue or whatever caused it) result in stomach pain and throwing up. Likely going to have to take tomorrow off. Not seeing any medical personnel since i know insurance won't cover enough of it and in the long ago past no doctor could figure out why I would have lightheaded/blackout issues. Also still family drama every *fruitcage* day. I was looking forward to going out to play this weekend (to get away from said drama). Also Evike trying to claim the Cyma Midcaps are the correct item just wrong shade batch when the barcode sticker description text matches what some overseas shops use for the orange models (*C72-YL). They claim if I ask for a resend the midcaps will just be the same color again, which is funny in that they must have received hundreds of wrong ones since they don't even have the orange color ones listed anywhere on their store. EDIT: Oh boy! Decided I best check the ExFog unit that was in the order as well. Turns out it came with two of the same exact manifold style instead of the two different ones it is supposed to come with, the other style being the one I needed.

    Long overtime day at work + having to waste what little of an evening I had left replacing and idler pulley on dryer (knowing I will have to replace belt at a later time) + Evike (I know, devil dealer but alas the only ones stateside with plum ak midcaps "apparently" ) facking up my order by sending me orange midcaps instead of the plum ones = very grumpy me. At least the sposn boonie in ss-spring pattern showed up alright and it doesn't completely choke my head (still might be a tad tight though).

    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    Meanwhile I feel like a sneaky *bramston pickle* finding a Splav m23 chest rig for 75$ shipped stateside just now. Appears to not be the current models being sold for silly prices elsewhere too. Does it make sense to have one having just bought another vest? No, but I got "super overtime" hours starting Tuesday and I feel like burning money out of spite. I believe it falls under the "ooh, shiny thing!" motive, but more like "ooh, old condura thing!"

    Most recent things acquired. Awaiting on a few other things over the next week or so (gotta burn overtime money on something right). Set of Bytek cobra side zip boots and a 2006 Splav M22 vest. Sadly said vest will not work for bizon magazines (pouches are too loose), so it will either be RPK dedicated vest or backup vest when I feel too lazy to reload mags and just take off my main vest to throw this one on with mags already loaded in it.

    Painted Weapons Picture Thread

    Frankly I am sad no one has asked for a Marui themed one yet.

    Good day out on the field across state, though the humidity and muck were quite the obstacles. Sadly the accursed rpk decided to have one motor soldering break off so I didn't get to run it, ak104 got most use again (I honestly think it beats out my aks74). Also seemed to have lost a set of pyramex i force goggles (if any luck someone found them).

    As someone who lost his mother's mother back in March, I know too well the feeling Tink. I grew distant from both side's grandparents over the years (to the point of disgust towards both really) but it still is a suckerpunch that doesn't go away.

    LCT EBB prototypes - MP5, SCAR H, M16, G3, CQBR

    Nothing on the models besided the east bloc ones, but I see WGC has ebb versions of all the aks and whatnot on "special order" now. Honestly rather be able to just buy a full external kit now but alas that era is over.

    58th Shizuoka Hobby Show Tokyo Marui Products

    Guess GGO collab still going strong for TM. Was kinda hoping maybe a pkm or something would magically pop out but oh well, maybe in 5 years something will attract me again.

    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    Good time at the local field again today, despite a nasty knock on the head from someone who seems to love shooting bursts to the head. Ran around mostly with the ak104/5 as the bizon did not want to work with the pbs-1 well in short barrel form (and seemed to be acting up hop up wise) and my old aks-74 frankenstein decided to lose it's trunnion pin into the muck somewhere at start of first game. Debating whether to take the pin out of the backup 74mn or transfer all the guts over to that one instead (since the aks-74 receiver hole is likely worn out too much). Pulled off some fantastic flanking towards the end of the day.

    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    Good to hear shmook! Work busy as well (in the less positive way for me, my back!) but I figure I gotta make enough to fund my failures at gearbox tech work somehow (just ordered another mosfet unit to replace the nukefet that likely fried from the accident earlier this weekend.) I also still not had schnitzel with noodles sadly.
