    Thank you very much for the responses. When I communicated with Smoke, he said he sized his boolits before and after powder-coating. If a boolit was much oversized, I can see how that would/could be necessary. Most of my boolits I *think* (read...

    Thinking about taking the plunge into powder-coating ... Smoke4320's powders and the clear in particular. Kinda like the plain looks of cast boolits and do not see the need for multi-color boolits. Have a couple of Stars and would have to...

    If you want to read about a young man whose character was formed as early as the age of 17, read about Joseph in Genesis chapter 37 and following. However, most of us run into those "bumps" in the road that teach us some of the hard lessons of life...

    alamogunr: The 2011 Avalon came with Michelins and I replaced with the same tire. This car still has the original brakes all around. At the dealership they asked me who replaced the brakes. I told them they had never been replaced. They tell me...
