    I'm going to wash them in accordance with their care instructions and see which level of cushioning work best in my boots. No pictures, I'm still searching for a new image hosting site.

    Bought myself the Invicta 8926OB that's on sale at Amazon right now and dial+hands to have a go at modding one on my own. @idvsego 's got me hooked.

    I think so. I've got a cheap Dremel, but might borrow my friend's, he's got a lot more attachments and stuff. Figure I'll start with my file/rasp and see what I can accomplish with that first. What grit did you use for the final finish?

    I use a sandpaper wheel on the Dremel then 200, 800, and 1000 if I want to polish. I usually stop at 800. Be careful with the Dremel. Real easy to get the case shape all wonky.

    Cool, might stick with file and lots of elbow grease and sand paper instead. Wish I could just fill the engraving in. Too bad JB weld doesn't make a shiny/SS color version of their metal epoxy.

    Edit:
    Actually, they've got a JB SteelStik, for a couple bucks, I might just try filling it in with that and sanding down/buffing it to see how that looks. But I don't think color will be anywhere close...hmmm...

    It hasn't been cold enough to break out the full cushion models, but the 1403 and 1939 socks are definitely warm enough for standing around waiting for the Metro. The 1617 are slightly heavier than Nordstrom's merino dress socks.

    Thank you for the imgur suggestion.

    Worst case you just file it still. Might as well see, right?

    Keep us updated on how that works. I have two invictas myself that could use the removal of engraving
