    Today it is a Benchmade Bugout with orange G10 grips and the chromium nitride coated blade, it’s a damn fine slicer and is murder on zip ties, letters, and garden fresh tomatoes.

    They never all agree, that's why GE put in 8 of em and it takes 3 failing to trip;)

    Rolls-Royce used 17 of them at the far tail end on the RB-211 (several variants). They were all dual element TCs as well, so 34 channels. We used it to detect flame out and a 100 degree spread on one of them would have been a shutdown. The main engine I worked on had DLE combustors without crossover tubes, so if one can went out it was... really bad. We could not afford a flame out on a single can or the turbine would come apart in short order.

    You could also see it in the CO emissions.

    Yeah, LM6000s are actually remarkably robust engines...takes quite a bit to kill one in most instances ;)

    But it is extraordinarily exciting when you do! (Ask me how I know...)

    Gas turbines are really fun to be around. I miss it. Spent many years traveling the globe working on them. Good times.

    In Egypt our guys knew that's when they had to go out to the plant to restart the gen set.

    A Lightweight Para3 with Maxamet is a great idea!

    Thanks! The Maxamet is by far my fav Para3 variant, but I really liked the weight, feel, and wire clip of the LW chassis for my uses, so that one checks all my boxes :)
