Probably, but I've forgotten it.

I have; itís a Hideriyama from JKI. I can tell you I wouldnít bother again though, the result is no better than the from good synthetics or the ďnatural syntheticsĒ from JNS. The supposed better feel, deburring, etc never manifested for me. Itís fine, the edge is nice when I finish with it, but Iíd be hard-pressed to say itís better.

And that was supposed to be one of the best ones for beginners to Jnats.

Ah, that's one of the ones that I had looked at, but was thinking about going with something a little more coarse. Speaking of JKI and synths, that 2k Gesshin gets a *lot* of love, and it's finally back in stock.

I'm just primarily using the King KDS 1k/6k that I've had forever and stropping. The 1k side seems fine (though I don't have a reference), but I'm not a fan of the 6k side (through, again, I don't have a reference). I get results, but the feel is vague on the 6k. And yeah, it's budget, so I shouldn't expect too much.

Anyway, I'm just pondering where to go without jumping in too deep and was curious as to your experiences.

Someone just posted this on the knife forums. I think that it'll appeal to non-knife nerds, too, though -

I've really been wanting to get this set.

Congrats looks great. How tall are you exactly?

The latest seems to be that putting someone on a ventilator is really a last resort. There was something interesting the other day that suggested that they can detect people getting into trouble before there are any real symptoms of breathing problems:

This would be great if people could actually get their hands on a pulse oximeter

I should probably do something like that before rolling the dice on natural stones, but FOMO and all that.

You can get a pulse ox on Amazon for 30 bucks. That said, I'm going to the hospital when I get short of breath no matter what my O2 sat is.

whyfi it looks like this with the cap off. couldnít send it private. I have since lowered the seat post trying to get the rear derailer set. Itís not shifting right at the moment.

Iíve bought 2 from Amazon and one from some place in canada, none have actually shipped yet

Cool, so it's got some kind of compression plug in there - more than mine came with.

Does the RD just need some indexing?

yea, itís making the skipping chain rubbing noise. And not shifting perfectly on the smaller cogs.

Go through the adjustments here - https://si.shimano.com/pdfs/dm/DM-RARD001-04-ENG.pdf

I would hope that high and low limits were set properly, but double-check and then do the indexing on pages 19-21.

And make sure the cable end at the lever and housings segments are properly seated.

I rode, it was nice. I saw Heathpack going the other direction, don't know if she saw me, I do kinda stick out like a sore thumb.

Got it to stop making annoying noises and to shift properly. My rear disk brake the handle pull is pretty loose, so I adjust that at the brake? Also when I use either brake it does feel like solid braking action like I would have thought. Is the normal?

Nope. Wasn't sure if it was her until the wave window was closed.

Some air probably got in to the line in shipping. First, try flicking the levers for 20-30 seconds, then give a couple good squeezes and see how it feels. If that doesn't help enough, put the bike in a stand or find a way to orient it so that the brake line is always going up from the caliper to the levers. Flick levers vigorously to encourage the bubbles to get back up in to the reservoir. Turn the handlebars, too, to make sure there isn't a trap where the bubbles would get stuck.

And not quite understanding the braking feel question. Are you talking lever feel or the actual braking/slowing force? If you're talking braking force, the pads will need to bed in to the rotors like they would on a car or motorcycle. Resin pads are pretty decent out of the box. Metallic pads suck out of the box and need more time to bed.

TFW you're working on a bug that people have been blaming you for "breaking", then you discover that it's six-year-old code.
