    lightman replied to a thread Snow???? in Our Town
    We don't get very much snow here in central Arkansas. Maybe a fraction of an inch once of twice. We do get some freezing rain and ice. And most of us can't deal with it. The grocery stores run out of stuff even though the snow only last for a short...

    I've said it before and I'll say it again! I envy you guys that can find pewter. What little that I run across is priced at antique prices. Lead, on the other hand is still available. Without even actively looking I get more every year than I use.

    I just had another idea. You could make a small ulu with a top skeleton handle with a tang on both ends of the handle. Then if needed in a survival situation a stick for a handle could be lashed on.

    I've been carrying a leatherman tool for 20 years. A wave or an original. Feel naked without it.

    The strips of wood don't go between the logs, but on the outside of them right at the joint. So say you have a 1" gap, you stuff that with insulation, then you take a 1/4 of a large sapling or just a whole small round sapling that is 1" -1 1/4" ...

    I have big (not humongous) hands and the 5" lock back like the buck 110 fits me well. I don't have any of the schrade versions, but like all other knives I don't have, I'm looking for one. I have a buck 426, which is a plastic handled 110 and...

    Hacksaw blade will do decent. Gave it some more thought. You could cut a rat tail tang and add barbs to it with a cold chisel. Then it could be driven into a stick to use for a handle.

    Bazoo replied to a thread Concealed carry permits in Our Town
    Personally I think they will. I've not talked to any cops that agree with constitutional carry, nor does the folks at the local gun store. The FOP was complaining about it on the news when it passed. I don't see much support for it other than...

    My 4 cavity Lyman molds are from the 60's or early 70's and they cast great. But Lyman has had a few problems. Sometime during the 80's or early 90's they had a problem with the top of the mold blocks galling. Recently there have been post about...

    Roger, those are all good points and pretty much how I do all of my smelting. I've only messed with these pole top and cross arm pins once before. I'll be helping a buddy with these. I'm not even sure if they are worth the effort or not. The...

    Congratulations. I've yet to get one with a handgun or cast. That said, both are on the short list for next year as my season is over here except for ML. Might borrow a ML off a friend but it ain't the same as using your own.

    Stripping the bark is a must to prevent rot and bugs. The suggestion for rolled up newspaper is a good idea, corrugated cardboard would do well too I think.

    lightman replied to a thread Loctite 222 OR 243 in Our Town
    I agree about using Locktite on the base screws and not the rings. I also degrease the threads. I have used red a time or two in a pinch. To get it loose I just held the tip of a soldering gun to the screw head for a few minutes.

    Thanks for the replys everyone. Especially for the warning about using the basket. My Son is a Duck Hunter and gets his shotguns extremely dirty. I'm thinking this cleaner would be great on his bolts and trigger assemblies.

    Back to the original post, yes you should flux it. The better job you do making ingots means cleaner material in your casting pot. I use pine sawdust and flux a few times followed by some type of wax. For a Dutch oven I probably would use a coffee...
