    10 percent increase is a big increase. Maybe not massive, but it isnt a 2 or 3 percent that could be absorbed by most. Yes, they added Sunday Amazon delivery at a lower cost than the Saturday deliveries that they have been wanting to eliminate...

    Well, I've a cheap dueling tree that on of the box stores sells. Supposedly for pistol, not just a 22 tree. Well after about 50-60 rounds, I had one flag break off. Never penetrated, but broke. I've done 9mm, 45auto and 300BO (yeah, more rifle...

    I've only made my own. HF saw which while cuts fine, isn't really square to the bed of the saw. Should have taken it back, but I didn't and I just shimmed it. Bought a trim jig similar to the one in pic above, but never really liked it. 3D...

    200 pounds, 2-4%? Sounds like I'd buy about 10 pounds of pewter or linotype and go with that. Subsonic I've been using Range lead for almost everything, drop a piece or two of what appears to be linotype in my pot. Nothing exact, just keeps it...

    Same thing as the ripoff Car warranties, and the relatively new appliance warranties. Each and every one of these costs more than any repair in way more than the majority of cases. Deductibles are high, And the kicker is exclusions are ridiculous....

    Oh, and they really wouldn't be that costly to make an injection mold for. But need would be probably 2000 sales to break even.

    On most cheap printers like mine, this will not print well. The bottom of the cup will not be printed well. Cup MUST be printed with mouth open. To make easy, handle would then be on the bottom rather that the top. Needs a redesign.

    Yep, Pine would be the cheapest wood. Kind of wish I had a CNC, I've a large stack of 1/2" mdf that is 6" wide x 96" long. This would be good project for use and might even could sell a few. But I'm not drilling thousands of holes with my drill...

    Posts confirm our decision. She has so far not been walking since last fall. Left her too weak. Getting better but instead of just a day or so, it might be 2 weeks the way it looks. But she's still fighting. Btw, brother fired her worst...

    Mine aren't wobbly, I use one spring on left that is pretty stiff, shorter spring on right that has a bit less tension. There is constant tension with springs, where loose screw offers zero. Guess that is the best answer. If I use (and I have...

    Yes good thoughts, it's hard. I see her roughly quarterly, saw her the week before Christmas. The thing that I think affects me more, is that in the two to three month time spans, i can SEE the deterioration. My brother seeing her at least...

    Well, as a lot of you guys are a bit older, and have gone through this with your parent/s, I wanted to pick your brains. Mother is 450 miles away. Still lives at home by herself. She's 92. Good mind, body is slowly failing. Still somewhat...
