    It's a Taurus. Poor quality from end to end. It's no surprise metallurgy lacks as well as other qualities they don't have. Really sorry it blew up on you.

    mold maker replied to a thread D-- cancer in Our Town
    Life is a terminal disease. Even Christ had to die. Spend the time you have left in support of those who are afflicted. The flip side of all this is that death isn't the end, but the reward for the past. Mom died at 92 from undiagnosed cancer...

    Problem is that the so-called learned are so intent on self-importance that they profess to already know everything and are just explaining it to us peons. We don't need them to accept Gods miracle and realize that he knew what he was doing at...

    I was gifted a three reel Toro Mower from a church when it was returned as too old and in too rough a shape to rebuild. It was in boxes, completely disassembled. I was 8 years old at the time, and within two weeks I had it reassembled. Dad was...

    .54 is the most popular in this area. .50 is fairly rare. I just finished a .53 Poor Boy a couple days ago.

    I disagree with removing it every time. That causes thread wear, and failure. Myself and other gun builders I know recommend only removing once a year for examination. Put them back in with anti-seize on the threads. The only reason to remove one is...

    Much hoop cheese still has the original wax covering. The current Baby Bell covering is different.

    It's my understanding that the wax used to be almost totally carnauba wax, but like everything else has been changed by the bean counters, to a plastic wax formula that works great for the cheese, but sucks as a lube. I saved over half a lb before...

    The good tools in my box are made to use. The cheap ones are to loan. Unlike the good stuff, the cheap ones always come home.

    I guess that's one way to improve the looks of a hornet. Bet it looked like it had the measles on both rear cheeks. LMAO, Sorry, my neighbor had one and it was my only way to go for several months. I was embarrassed.

    You would think they could eliminate the transmission delays and poor voice quality. Some are worse than Alexander G Bells first, being recorded on an Edison wax cylinder.

    For elk and moose, I would recommend nothing under 260 gr. I wouldn't even consider the 200-220 gr. range. Off angle shots may not give the penetration you want. IF you are going to push beyond factory velocities for cast, better have a good rifle...

    I've used Rich's flints, and bless him for making them available. However I did find they really wear a frizzen, so I keep them for emergency use only.

    They may have a half a handle on new gun sales but there were more than their estimates before the 4473 was invented. It sounds as if Nancy has had another dream.

    Same goes for anything sold at auction. To some folks, the idea of winning at all cost is more powerful than common sense.

    mold maker replied to a thread My USPS story. in Our Town
    To a certain group, everything with a barrel is an AR Howitzer in a supersonic speed, firing a cop killer round, fed by a 100 rnd clip. They aren't about to let logic or facts cloud their judgment, or sway their opinions. There is almost no reason...

    Lots of what used to be simple replacements are now cash cows for the mfg. They use priority sized/shaped parts that aren't available except in assys. Thus you either buy their part assy or make do with used. It also ensures that their repair...
