    fatelk replied to a thread Computer texting???? in Our Town
    Yes, but I think you have to know the recipient’s phone service provider, so you can send a text via your email. You send the email to their phone number@gateway address. You can find a list of common gateway addresses online. If you don’t know...

    fatelk replied to a thread New used rig... in Our Town
    Very nice! It feels good to get to a place where you don’t have to worry about the bills month to month. I’ve noticed that people often have widely differing perspectives on vehicles. Some people see their vehicles as extensions of themselves and...

    All’s well. She’s in recovery with pins, stitches, and a pretty purple cast. Most of us have been here at one time or another, part of life. Thanks guys!

    fatelk started a thread Waiting in Our Town
    Has to be the worst. Currently in the hospital waiting room while my little girl (5) is in surgery. It’s relatively minor and I know she’ll be fine, but all the “what-ifs” with anasthesia and all tend to make my wife a nervous wreck.

    fatelk started a thread Oversize bullets in Cast Boolits
    Specifically, oversized for cylinder throats. Yes, bullet size in general is covered ad infinitum here and I'll really just have to go shoot it and see how it does, but I was just curious to see what you all's thoughts were on the subject. I've...

    For pistol ammo I've scrounged so many empty commercial boxes out of the dumpster at the range that I have trash bags full of them in the attic. They're also the perfect size, as they fit precisely in a 50 cal size ammo can: 5 rows of 4 boxes for...

    It must depend on what day you call RCBS or something. I have an old Rock Chucker press that was missing the handle. I called RCBS to ask if I could buy a replacement handle for it, as the original was lost. They quoted me $35 plus shipping, as I...

    If you like your load and don't want to change it, I can understand doing exactly what you did. Not good to change up components on a max load without working up, and depriming is less time and effort than working up a new load. Probably a wise...

    I think there's some confusion about whether you actually loaded them up yet or not. I think some people are assuming that you have primed brass that's ready to load, and others are assuming that you loaded them up with a near max load before you...

    I finally got around to tinkering with it again. The front sight jam nut was TIGHT. I had to make some covers for my vice jaws to hold it tight enough without marring. Once I got it loose the sight spun easily on the threads. It took a while...

    fatelk replied to a thread HARBOR FREiGHT in Our Town
    It is sad that for many things American manufacturing can't compete. It seems like everything is made in China now. I recently bought a Starrett dial caliper. Guess what? Made in China. It's not just the junk made there now. I listened to a...
