Re: Someone got some new toys !!!!

Outstanding! I am guessing that those cost as I say "too much plus tax." There is just something about the word Research on the front of those that seems to make them extra cool.
So now that you have the "cool style points" for the day and everything.... how about posting the specs for us to admire..... please......

Re: Someone got some new toys !!!!

It's the Lightstar Referance 1.0 78 lbs.
I also think it's Serial # 14

Weird thing was, when he opened it last night, the face plate was loose. I tool the face off, and saw 2 of the little aluminum post bolts were sheered off, so I will have to do a little internal surgery on it later this week to get the face plate to stay in place. (stupid design... Guess these guys wern't machinists at all :)

Other than that, very nice unit... very few marks or scratches, and as usual, heavy as a lead brick !!!
