    Yeah you get used to shin height obstacles in this business. Pain is a great motivator.

    My HSGI canteen pouches each came with a huge strap for over the shoulder carry. Since the pouches are mounted on the webbing rig, I cut the straps in half and made 4 cargo lashing straps

    All rolled up with 5Col EPDM ranger bands (large) , ready for stowing into the webbing rig

    I "made" a tripod for my Dutch oven outdoor cooking obsession, because I have no way to cut or weld its 3, 8 ft steel t-post and 2 lengths of chain I cold chiseled to fit. ;). Works though.

    It is a vinyl cutter, I can do any logo on on vinyl or heat transfer and make shirts and stickers.

    So you download an image onto vinyl and then use heat transfer to put it on a shirt?

    Sort of yes, I upload the image into the software, it’s like a crafty version of Cad, then the machine cuts out the image on the desired media, if it’s a heat transfer then I put it on a shirt, bag or what ever fabric is requested. If it’s vinyl then you can stick it to whatever.

    That's cool. I need to check that out. Custom shirts online are getting pricey. Last time I looked it was around $35 for a t-shirt. Something like that would pay for itself in the long run.
