No the closest I got to that was when I was at boarding school we had to join the CCF -combined cadet force (which was good fun I don't recall anyone objecting) which had an army section and an RAF section so I was in the RAF section which meant less drilling and to me more interesting things like learning the theory of flight and getting taken up in aircraft and helicopters .
The" roger over and out" lingo is of course incorrect but correct etiquette is over when you finish what you are saying and out to end the conversation" roger that "is fine for understood.
But VHF protocol used to be very lax in the Caribbean on the small Islands where people on land would use it instead of telephones it has probable changed now that the world seems to have mobile phones.

Talking about army type things that some tea drinkers I have come across whilst professional yachting like to refer to tea as " NATO standard tea" that is tea with milk and two sugars.

That's hilarious...I am drinking a cup of NATO tea as I read your message! Strange!

Hey Tuffy,
I'd be interested to know how you plan to sharpen the sword.
I've experimented a little with some of mine and my WEPS, with varying results.
so...post pics!

it was just toooo long for the WE - my opinion, so i reverted to my no. 2 sharpener. many call it a Kally
8 - 3m trizact belts from 120 to 4,000 grit from doug rising.
1 - leather belt with compound - surgi sharp.
1 - hand stropping +++ with DLT strop - with black and white compound
1 - a lot of elbow work+++ with Hagerty 100 polish.
.
at the end, if u saw the vid - very sharp.

Hi Tuffy,
I didn't see a link to the video you mentioned in this thread...or am I missing something?
I'm glad you didn't try your WEPS on it, you'd have lost your mind trying to blend the edges because the rods are too short, and a whole host of other minor mechanical issues.
It's possible to do it with one, but very very frustrating.
Thanks again, and point me to your video that has this one...

as u have seen, not any vid on actual sharpening - but u can picture in your mind how it happens i know, just have to be little extra careful not to move to rapidly and press to hard. those belts really doa great job when used properly. i have sharpened several big machetes and man oh man what an edge did they get.
