    Soapstone is better than chalk IMO but file cards should be outlawed, I would never subject my files to one of those stikin things!!! First off they don't work very well, they do a fair job of removing the bigger clogs from the teeth that cause...

    I bought a "grab bag" of files on Ebay a couple of years ago that was described as having several Nicholson files that looked to be unused (which did in fact turn out to be brand new), it was also supposed to include several files of unknown make...

    I think it was you who put me onto Boggs a while back in another thread and they are everything folks claim about them, dull files return sharp enough to cut yourself on and cost very little compared to buying new ones.

    I have many Nicholson files, some over 20 years old but mostly newer ones, and I have never seen one made in either Pakistan or India however Mexico and Brazil made Nicholson files are common. USA made ones can still be found sometimes, "NOS", on...

    oldred replied to a thread 17 Mach 2 in Rimfire Area
    Ouch!!!! However that's what I love about these forums, this is all new to me but apparently not to several other folks here. Are there any common problems related to this round in single shot or bolt/lever repeaters? Maybe I would do well to just...

    Right now it is available in just about any quantity we might want and the adage "get'm while ya can" certainly applies here! It won't be long before we hear folks moaning and groaning because they didn't stock up while they could! In fact it...

    If for nothing else I have wanted one because that's got to be about the cutest little round I've seen! :razz: I sure hope they don't go the way of the 5 mm Remington, I know folks argue that the 17 HMR makes the M2 unnecessary but since when...

    oldred replied to a thread Pecan wood stocks? in Special Projects
    I have used pecan for several woodworking projects but not gun stocks, pecan is sometimes used for that purpose on cheaper guns. Those who have said it is similar to hickory are right, it's not quite as hard as hickory but very similar in almost...

    oldred replied to a thread Gun Smoke, carbide lamp in Leverguns
    Yep, been there and done that! Growing up in the hills of Eastern Kentucky late 50's early 60's and carbide was still sold out of those big blue cans sitting on the oiled wooden floor of the local store catering to the miners of the time, yes a lot...

    oldred replied to a thread Looking a lathe in Special Projects
    Well I'm careful and I doubt(ed) I would leave the chuck key in the chuck, that is until I did! I honestly felt that only someone careless would make such a mistake and didn't think I would ever do such a thing, I mean it's right in front of you so...

    Welding or brazing would not only warp a table like that but would likely crack it in the process, welding would almost certainly lead to cracking. If you are talking about rust pitting then products like JB weld and the other thick putty epoxies...
