    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...

    I have a hodgepodge of stuff. New usa craftsman, and new china craftsman. Some older craftsman, but not much. Some new kobalt stuff, seems good. I pick up what I can at pawn shops and yardsales. If I needed a wrench set, i'd probably go...

    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...

    Howdy, welcome to the forum. I dont have any experience with that cartridge. But I personally would think the lino would be better suited as an ingredient to make lyman 2.

    Slightly off subject. But a full size 1911, with an aluminum frame, sure feels nice in hand. I've never fired one however so I cant attest to recoil. I did however, have a Ciener 22 conversion kit for my 1911 a while, and I loved it. You...

    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...

    I set my cut off propane pot inside a steel car rim. I set that on some bricks, and build a fire underneath. The rim directs the heat around the pots sides, not just on the bottom. Works well. I tried it with the rim as is, but I ended up...
