    I learned years ago if a fox squirrel has a bigger 'nad sack than mine, leave 'em lay. Oppossum's gotta eat, too. I also learned to wet the fur and split the hide in the middle. I save the back and rear legs only. Again, oppossum's gotta eat,...

    Hannibal replied to a thread Hording for the storm in Our Town
    I always figured storing many supplies just meant every moron who didn't but had a gun would be coming by soon to try and take it. I figure the events following Katrina are a good indicator of the manner of insanity that will ensue within hours...

    In order to correctly size your cast bullets, you need to know the diameter of the throat, which requires a pound-cast or a cerrosafe cast. There are stickies and threads on both. To do otherwise is to simply hope for the best.

    Kind of what I was thinking. I developed a bias against them years ago due to the duds and weak firing ones. I won't buy them now.

    I've found Blue Jays to be rather obnoxious. At a feeder, they'll run all the other birds off. They'll steal eggs given opportunity. They're about as smart as a Crow, so if one is causing trouble then you've got you're hands full. YMMV

    Hannibal replied to a thread PID help needed in Casting Equipment
    If the temperature reads 350 degrees all the time, you'll need to get that sorted out first, I should think. Was this a problem before you replaced the thermocouple? If not, it likely needs to be calibrated. If so, you're going to need to...

    If you can find a timing light you can connect it and if the timing is erratic, particularly at idle, the chain is most likely worn. Not sure if this still works on the newer stuff, but worked great on the older ones. By older I mean the stuff with...

    Yeah. I wonder how many good pots have been tossed out over deteriorated connectors? To the OP - 'chickenhead knob' is a new one on me. Do you mean the rheostat knob? If so, measure the stem with a caliper and your local appliance par ts...

    That's appears to be the case. I find it odd that as many people as there are in the KC metro area that there aren't several ranges. Gun clubs and organized shoots are hard to find as well, but it follows that without ranges you can't have the rest.

    It may not be possible due to the way your heating element is made, but ring terminals are a much better choice for such an application. Spade terminals make it easy to put stuff together. And that's about the only good thing about them. ...

    Smelt them separately to get all the dirt out. Use plenty of flux. Much ado about which fluxing material to use, check the 'stickies'. Mostly I say use a product that produces a charcoal and don't get your melt too **** hot. Once you have clean...

    My Grandfather had a Remington No. 6 'Boy's rifle' chambered in .22lr when I was just a boy. I remember handling it, but I never fired it as we lived within city limits and I was too young to be trusted with it by myself. I've no idea what ever...

    I believe you meant 'Chore Boy'. (?) Getting difficult to find the copper stuff as opposed to the steel, so be cautious of what you're buying. Too many unscrupulous characters using copper wool for nefarious purposes, so I hear.

    Dial calipers or digital calipers are considered to have a tolerance of +/-.001". So they really aren't accurate enough for this type of measurement. This is why the standard process is to use a soft lead slug to obtain a measurement using a...
