    This is actually a good common sense and cheap alternative to buying or renting a set of gauges. I've used this method four times already and it most definitely worked. I first learned about it on the Savage Barrel-Nut forums. If you plan on...

    Good for you; I'm not trying to be facetious, I mean it. Enjoy what you have but please stop assuming that just because your experience with these cheap little import lathes didn't meet your preferences or machining experience levels they are not...

    My measurements tell me and show me that there are slight variations in the outside diameter of the two driving bands. This really didn't concern me at first because I thought that when I ran them through my bullet sizer, those variations would be...

    Years ago I bought one of the Lyman 200 grain Devastator single cavity bullet molds. Although they shot real well out of my Kimber 45, I would always get the kind of leading just ahead of the chamber that causes one to use an excess of foul...

    I'm sure it's similar in situation to setting up the gears to go from standard threads to metric threads. You just need the correct pulley with the correct number of teeth on it. (which your machine may not include) If the instruction manual...

    I've dreamed of doing all of those things but have not done so yet. I have the machinery to build my own but I lack the patience and finances to proceed with any of my designs. The cylindrical housings for the builds I've had in mind are the...

    When I bought my mini mill and lathe, they came with many of the items listed above as stuff you'd have to buy separately. All I had to buy was cutting tools. I already had measuring tools so that was covered. I've mentioned this before in...

    I started out with a mini mill and mini lathe that I bought from Harbor Freight. They were like toys compared to what I use now but I learned alot from using them. You will eventually want to upgrade but don't be in a hurry to do so. The...

    We used to let some of our hens incubate duck eggs along side of here own eggs when our ducks would abandon their nests. I always got a kick at how frantic the momma hens would get when those little ducklings fearlessly jumped into the irrigation...

    You just have to align them end to end with no more than three or four in that line of eggs. That way they settle right into your butt crack without being damaged. Plan on loosing at least one of those chicks when they start to hatch. It will...

    When I was a kid there used to be a small toy-like incubator that was sold as a hobby incubator. I worked on a ranch so I had access to fertilized chicken eggs. I saved up some money and my mom kicked in a little to make up my lack of cash. ...

    I once took several mile-long shots with my Tikka 308 at the side of a mountain. I'm pretty sure I hit it every time, I just don't know where exactly. I wasn't to concerned about doping the wind since that mountain was at least a mile wide and...

    Ditto on this one too. I mean if you're referring to the Gateway to airguns forum. I got the same reception there as well when I mentioned my trigger upgrade. I'm still a member there but it's not a very comfortable place to chat with other like...

    I signed up on that forum to spread the word about the new trigger upgrade we had come up with. The news was well received by forum members but the mods interpreted my post as a sales pitch. I never went back after that. It's strange how the mind...
