    So we have a siesta time in the middle of the day. What's the big deal? I generally take a nap then anyway.

    Ignore the butt. You can use Minwax Wood Hardener to stabilize the grain. Stick with the scraper, then go to a burnishing tool. I use an antler tip.

    If you have ins, especially good ins, the tests and evaluations never end. It is the reason our health ins is in such rotten shape. Between the ambulance chasers and the Docs covering their butts, the health industry has become a racket. Loyd, my...

    You can also boil the bejeebers (grease) out of it, then soak it in the Kroil or whatever.

    It's bewildering that government employees can watch porn on their computers, but not see gun related sites.

    If banned for Facebook posts, that is unforgivable and wrong of the management. Members were always told if they have a complaint, take it somewhere else. It is no one's business of what someone posts elsewhere.

    It's easier to get an appropriately sized tote to store all the equipment in. Clean is a relative term. I have 2 totes, one has the tools and the other supplies, and finished lube. The tools don't matter if it gets hot, but the supplies need a...

    " Just another pill in the pile I already take for old age" Boy, isn't that the truth. I take so many I rattle in the mornings, and again at bed time. And a side effect of most of them makes me drowsy. The rest contribute to a lack of energy...

    Well, what happens if the SHTF never happens? There is going to be a lot of folks with soggy salt or storage space full of "just in case". Silver may tarnish, which is no real problem, but gold will always be the same bright metal regardless of...

    I tried Ed's Red for cleaning black powder. In my experience, it immediately turned the fouling to asphalt, and was extremely hard to clean. That was something I was aware of about mixing petroleum products with the fouling, but had to try it for...

    You may reach forging heat, but forget reaching welding heat. It takes a long time in my regular propane forge to make the heat. I was able to do it much faster in a coal forge, but getting coal became difficult in this area, without buying by the...

    A big mistake many make with walnut stocks, is immediately thinking they need to use a stain. If the wood has any decent color or figure at all, a simple oil finish brings out it's best qualities. The only walnut I like to stain is some that has...

    Lloyd, ask your doctor about a low carb diet. It was one of the main treatments for epilepsy long before it was touted as a weight loss program. Apparently it was pretty effective.

    Not that one, but a cheap one bought on line, saved my bacon when tracing the wiring to add a switched light fixture. I could tell where each (7) romex came from without increasing the hole around the electrical box.

    In my lifetime, I've owned 2 new vehicles. First was a 73 Suburban that I traded for a new 03 Dodge. With the prices charged today, the now 14 yr old Dodge had better last the rest of my life. So far it only has 73K miles. Mostly as a school...

    garandsrus replied to a thread Why BH 209? in Muzzleloading.
    Another difference with 209 is that it is lighter than an equivalent volume of BP so even though the bottle is less than a pound, it is rouhly equivalent to a pound of BP or substitute.
