    mold maker replied to a thread Truck camper? in Our Town
    I built 2 covers with 1 1/2" spruce and luan int. covered on the outside with diamond embossed aluminum. Everything glued and stapled or screwed. The glass weighed as much as the cover. You could load or onload from inside by lifting with your...

    There certainly seems to be a lot of regulars missing here of late. Lots of knowledge gone. The membership numbers don't show it but my memory says so. Some even left on their own for whatever. If we lose the older members we will also lose the...

    My first rifle (22LR 552 BDL) and shotgun (1100 BDL) were Remingtons but that was late 60s and everything has suffered since then. Glad I still have them since I couldn't afford to replace them. From top of the heap to bankruptcy is a big fall.

    After 4 big cups and the time spent, I bet I know the next thing your gonna do before leaving for work. LOL Sometimes I used to do the same and it required an unscheduled pitstop. Hope you work out the LPP problem.

    mold maker replied to a thread Gifted hobbyist wanted in Our Town
    While I can't speak for gunsmiths, I'd much rather have a gemstone cut by a talented hobbyist than a commercial or professional. I dare you to find fault with any stone I've cut but can find faults in all "professional" cuts. They can't take the...

    These mini loaf pans were the heavier aluminum (not the thin disposable) and at the time I never gave thought to them not being capeable of handeling the heat and weight. They were just another mold size to add to my arsonal of ingot molds. The...

    I used to always use a pair of cheap HF nitril gloves for the same reason. Spitting in a public place without using a bottle with lid is just plain rude and nasty.

    I got the look today. There was the tall tail evidence of chocolate in the corner of my grin, and I had forgotten to give hers to her. Good thing I had bought it ahead of time when I bought mine.

    It's kinda like machining 80% lowers. If you are involved for your own use, it's OK. Even allowing others to use your jigs or doing it for them is a NO NO. The Gov wants their unfare taxes. To say your only a small potato doesn't get by. They...

    I remember buying a set of mini loaf pans mounted 6 (I think) in a wire frame. When I poured the lead in there was a funny creaking sound and the heat almost melted through the aluminum pans. I guess the weight was more than the thin HOT...

    China can and will build to spec at a price point. Problem is that they will find the cheapest possible production method and parts to do it. You have to be very careful to make the specs meet your expectations. It appears that they have done so...

    I keep prepped brass in whatever it fits, ie stacked 5gal buckets to peanut jars. I no longer keep much loaded ammo to make the powder and primers last. I no longer shoot the volume I once did and having extra thousands of loaded rounds might...

    As long as a crutch exists there will be dependence. When the last crutch is lost he will have no others legs to stand on. Yours isn't an uncommon tale, but a sad one for you. The conclusion you have come to is correct. It is the only possible...

    About once a month I get a hankering for that dish. When it happens, nothing else satisfies. No one else in the family appreciates it so I've found a small restraunt that serves it that way just for me. Good stuff!!!!

    My wife's family grew up eating salmon stew which is very similar. Can't say I ever developed a taste for either, although fried oisters are a welcome treat on a cold day.

    It appears their definitions are fluid to fit the situation. If you cast, swage or make any portion of ammo for anybody else it is subject to interpretation. Discussing doing so in a public forum is risky. I personally won't even entertain the...
