    Bulldogger replied to a thread Meat grinder in Cookin' Recipe's
    If that doesn't work out, do what I did to get my grinder. Find a drop ship reseller on eBay, the kind that just automatically lists items for auction but almost never has them in stock, just has them drop shipped from a warehouse source that...

    I haven't done any myself but in a package deal on a bunch of old reloading/gun stuff I got a .44 conversion cylinder custom made by some old gunsmith in the Midwest, Northern Indiana if memory serves. The papers in the package were old enough for...

    Bulldogger replied to a thread Meat grinder in Cookin' Recipe's
    Try emailing their customer service or contacting the number/website on the grinder. Assuming it has one. Could ask Gander Mtn if not. I broke two plastic gears in my MTN Gearsmith and the vendor sent me replacements at a very decent price. ...

    Keep at it! There is a learning curve as you dial in your printer's physical quirks, the software settings and your choice of material. In my experience, every filament material supplier has a little different recipe, so different spools differ in...

    I have a large Japanese flowering quince bush inherited from the previous owner of my house. It produces small fruits, maybe 2 inches in diameter. They must be good, because they disappear before they are fully ripe. We have a lot of squirrels...

    I bought a 3D printer kit for a late-Christmas present this year and am enjoying learning to use and improve it and making things for around the home and garage. I also print out small things to give as presents or party favors. The ability to...

    I second the notion that only time in the woods will teach you about what happens in the woods. As to WHEN, there is some good lore about hunting by the phases of the moon and when it is at apogee and perigee, not full/new or sunrise/sunset. Deer,...

    I have read, but not verified, that one of the reasons for the USSR's ammo choices was to have cases a tiny bit larger than US/NATO rounds, so that in a pinch the Soviet weapons could fire (poorly) US ammunition, but our weapons could not do so with...

    Bulldogger replied to a thread Solar Electricity in Our Town
    Reading all the posts about typical monthly gas/electric bills I am even more thankful to the Serviceman (lifelong HVAC installer) who owned my house before me. Made in 1956, it's 4 bedrooms and finished basement with a large add-on garage and den...

    I second going large or going home. It's a recoverable expense if you expect to can that much sausage and other vittles regularly. I have an old Presto that suits my needs, though I wouldn't turn down an even bigger one. This is one time I...

    I have a 32Q Presto that I use for everything imaginable. Mostly pressure canning vegetables and occasionally meats and beans. I like pressure canning ready-made meals, especially for truck camping, though I do not do that as often as I might. ...
