  • Thanks Down. I was thinking the same. Maybe rig up a universal garage door opener to make it work, but after some research the plot thickens. This was an effort in 2014 and these are called interactive tap handles. They made about 8000 of them. They would activate AUTOMATICALLY when the home team scored a TD, goal, run, whatever. That was done via Sprints M2M network and technology developed by MESH systems. search "Budweiser interactive tap handle" or "interactive tap marker" and there's info out there. If sprint isn't onboard anymore, it won't work like that ever again and these wouldn't be up for sale if they still worked, i'd think. I have a contact at budweiser who's pretty high up. I may reach out to him. I figure they have to be configured with some software t...see more »Thanks Down. I was thinking the same.

I may reach out to him. I figure they have to be configured with some software to work for my teams. I've also reached out to the MESH guys. You never know. Worst case I unsolder the test switch and mount a tiny one on the tap handle that will depress when someone pours a beer. That wold still be cool. This thing has more tech than the moon lander. Pretty cool. More to come.......

    Black Hole Table

    Very cool. When I first checked it i figured that the infinity mirror part was between the table top and the bottom. That would be interesting to do and not too tough to test. Remove your 1 way mirror from the top of the existing rig in the bottom and get some mirror tint film from a window tint place and use it on the bottom of your tabletop. That would be a different look for sure. Heck, try it with both the bottom and new top 1 way glass. That could get really freaky. If it's a horrible affect, it's very easy to bring back to it's current state by peeling off the tint. Great job.

  • Remove and replace the bezel on your Rolex Submariner.

    Charles, your wife is lucky to have a yachtmaster which features a platinum bezel and dial. Your wife is less lucky that she has to replace that platinum bezel. That stuff is expensive. You don't have to go to a Rolex dealer to get a legit Rolex repair. A good watch shop that fixes Rolex watches should be able to show you documentation that they have a legit Rolex parts account. That's a good assurance that you're getting the real deal. It'll still be expensive, but may save you a bit. Genuine dials are certainly sold privately, but there are a lot of fakes out there. Unless you have a good amount of knowledge, buy a bezel or watch locally and meet at a watch shop who has agreed to verify authenticity (for a fee). That way you can save a few bucks from a private sale and ensure you're g...see more »Charles, your wife is lucky to have a yachtmaster which features a platinum bezel and dial.

    Wow, lucky to find that even in the confines of your trunk. I'll admit, I had to look to see what a paramotor was. Very cool toy. Glad you're back in business watch-wise.
