    I assume you ran ICPES? Did the same analysis work (plus others) for years at major oil company trouble shooting lab. Very interesting and informative work.

    The navy used a Spectroil machine at the time I was doing it. 2002 through 2004. I'm not not positive about but I think it was made for the military if more specifically the navy.

    Ok, the Spectroil M. That's a bit different. It is an OES (optical emission spectrometer). Very robust and accurate elemental analyzer. You gain a lot of insight to bearing and oil wipe surface deterioration rates with that data.

    Yes. Our primary purpose is was to predict systems failure. It's so accurate that in 2003 we predicted eminent catastrophic failure of a J52 engine but protocol had been overlooked by the squadron and the sample was ran While the EA6B was already in flight. We lost that prowler when the engine exploded do to failure of the #1 fan turbine bearing. There were was a bunch of bad engine in the fleet and affected aircraft were supposed to too run sample every 10 hour and and not be flow till cleared. NAVAIRSYSCOM thought all of the bad engines had been removed and relaxed the requirements. We almost lost 2 aviators that day. We did lose a very expensive and invaluable electronic warfare asset. This was during a time of extensive operations all over Iraq and surrounding countries. We only had 3 of those planes to begin with.

    Just one of many examples of having the best tools and not using them with heavy consequences.

    Lots of stuff to take in there fellas. Most of the time my maintenance honing is because I'm having fun. I like honing, love to hone. As I recently invested into the jnat world I've found it heaps of fun, going back to a 5k edge of a perfectly working razor and just convert it over to my jnat edge. Was it necessary? No. Was it fun? Yep. But on an occasion where I feel a little bit of tug, I've got a barber hone from Mike Brandonisio at the Restored Razor. He got me a barber hone sized fresh water river stone, it's terrific with a hint of lather, and is ever bit as good as my Naniwa 10k in the quick touch up department. Just reminding everyone, this stuff is fun. Shaving used to be a chore, now I wish my beard would grow faster so I can use this razor or that one. Sometimes I just re-hone a razor simply for fun under the guise of maybe edge chasing. I have 35 or so razors and none of them, I would say with confidence would not shave nice.

    I agree. To me honing is more therapy than necessity. It is very soothing to me, the sound of steel on stone. I am frequently taking one of my blades and making a few passes while watching a baseball game, or if I feel stressed at the end of the day. What could be more relaxing than spending some quality time with favorite blade. I know it sounds crazy, maybe it is, but it works for my sad excuse for a psyche.
