    All of mine are Iron blocks. If I'm going to use one again fairly soon, I hose it off with spray can oil after it cools down and put it & the handles in a zip lock bag.. After a hot, humid summer where they are stored in the garage- and after I...

    Winger Ed. replied to a thread Leather care? in Our Town
    After ya take care of the leather, fix the humidity problem in the basement. That same mold is chewing on everything else in there, there's a good chance it will make you sick, and over time it will even rot the house out from under you.

    Back in the old days when steel shot first came along to replace lead- People that did a lot of shot-gunnin' talked about it trashing their screw in chokes, and even blowing out a few of them. The barrel behind the chokes didn't fare very well...

    Depending on the brand, they will usually give ya a new set or sell them pretty cheap. I've hacked around trying to work on one of mine, and it never did work exactly right.

    Glad it worked out. I've run into kids like that too. I usually end up telling they need more practice at lying, since they're not very good at it.

    They'll slow down faster than lead, and probably ding up your barrel. That used to be a big complaint with steel shot in general. Save them for a high end sling shot. They do pretty good in them.

    Old blue jeans make a good substitute until ya can find real burlap. I save the cut off legs from making short pants. It's pretty handy for things like you're doing.

    Cool. Even when lead was 25 cents a pound, I scrounged all the free stuff I could get a hold of. It's a good feeling when ya beat the system. With all the pure lead swaged bullets, if there is even a good handful of cast ones in there, you...

    Winger Ed. replied to a thread Carp Hunting in Hunting with CB's
    Not for carp bait. If it isn't fresh enough that you'd eat it yourself-- they won't either. But if it spoils and grows mold, catfish will still hit it. One of the neighbors used to work at a fast food restaurant. She'd bring home their French...

    I did a remodel of our bathroom years ago. As I was doing the tile squares in the tub enclosure, my buddy commented that he'd done theirs, and it was a real pain. A week or two later: Over at his house he said something about tiling around the...

    Winger Ed. replied to a thread Carp Hunting in Hunting with CB's
    I like 'em. Ya need to do all the trimming, then soak it overnight in the refrigerator in water with a bump of vinegar in it. Then run it in the pressure cooker for 90 minutes. That cooks it and dissolves the small 'Y' bones down to what you find...

    I had a problem with the fuel pump on my JD 105 acting like that. At the time it wasn't very old either. You may also have a clog or restriction in the tank's pick up tube. Not sure where the regulator is, but if it isn't real obvious, I'd...

    I'm not all Scientific with this stuff. I don't even have a thermometer. I just do what works for me. When I start getting that lead smear, I turn the knob on the Pro-Melt down just a bit, slow down my rate to let the sprue cool a second or...
