Now, that's a great idea, because I'm pretty sure I have these babies on wrong--chafing has set in.

As for REWahoo's idea of going onto Craiglist: they have the clamps, but they've been previously worn. I'm kind of squeemish about stuff like that.

And, I can't return them to Neiman Marcus because one of the semi-precious stones fell out of the finest of Italian leather and is missing. That, and one of the leathered clamps somehow got stained. (Is that too much information)?

My best buys are at thrift stores. Last week I got an external framed back pack for $6.50. Same thing on Cabelas was over $80. I'll use it to haul my gold panning equipment to the river this summer. Men's clothing, shirts especially, are awesome buys. I get them for about $2 each. I'll recycle them into rags by changing my motor oil wearing one once it's ready for the garbage. I got a nice coffee pot there too; $3. I picked up an old iron for pressing clothes. I use it as a heater for my hot tub. Just sealed it with a tube of RTV and toss it in then wait 4 or 5 hours. I got the hot tub of craigslist for $300. (don't use the tub with the iron plugged in and inside the tub.)

No need for a $200 machine. Choose tools wisely, and live well.

But then you would have to scour the thrift shops to find a suitable hair shirt.
