    Just a thought, but what is it going to look like in 3 more years?:eek:

    It is incredible collection. You are saying it took less then 3 years to collect?

    Is it possible you could show us a close up of your Senator in it's case?

    Sure- when I have the camera out next no problem. I'm not certain that the senator goes in the black and tan case that I have it in- I heard that it may, however. The other option would be simply a fat handle gold tech.

    Yes this is only 3 years....

    Now I feel good about my collection. Only have eight of them plus a striaght. I have a strict policy - NEVER BUY ANYTHING I CAN'T USE ONCE A WEEK. And eight is pushing.

    I have one that came in the black and tan case as well.. so that makes another one including a few more on the Bay I've seen. I tend to think the Black and Tan case may have been used for a couple different razors.

    That's a very impressive collection.

    Are you married? I don't ask to be rude. I'm merely noting that many wives have kept the DE user/spouse in their lives from exorcising his RAD demons. :D

    From an old married man this is not always true, some can keep the acquisition disorder away while others only usher it in the front door. One of my pearls of wisom is Generaly Never Generalize. And thats true here to my Mrs started the whole acquisition disorder off.

    I didn't generalize. I didn't say all or even most wives. I said many. ;)

    I finally found where half of the Earth's metal material had gone to.
    Great collection man! Damn, must've took you years to gather all that.
    Anyone with a metal detector is sure to find your house anywhere on the planet and to think scientists started speaking the Earth's magnetic field shifted to your state! Be sure the shelf doesn't fall on anybody or they will look like Pinhead from Hellraiser, and I pitty anyone who enters your home with a magnet! I haven't PMed you in a long time, hows everything?

    I couldn't find the appropriate emoticon for this-it would be a tongue hanging out with saliva dripping off of it.
  20. Absolutely Fantastic display! (Think I saw an open space... 3rd shelf, halfway back, and on the left)... hee hee. Beautiful machines you have there.
