    It is cold everyday in San Francisco. Remember what Mark Twain said, " The mildest winter I ever spent was one summer in San Francisco".

    A coworker once told me, if you want pancakes to rise and taste great open a can of beer the night before and use that instead of milk for the mix. My wife, being a teetotaler would never try it. Myself, I can't cook. I burn the Jell-O every time.

    If your red & green wires were shorted it would not cause the phone to ring. It would make your line permanently busy. I have no idea what is going on with your phone line to cause the phone to ring continually.

    The 44 1/2 is a very strong action. It was the only one of the single shots that was made for smokeless powder. I like 4759 because it does a better job of filling the older cases. The Hi Wall and the Borchardt are also very strong. The bullet I use...

    GOPHER SLAYER replied to a thread Land line phone in Our Town
    Written like a true phone man. I have not heard the words tip & ring since retiring. Tip referred to the tip of the plug used on switchboards. Ring referred to the brass ring found on the plug. I installed and worked on switchboards for many years....

    The red and green are the two that matter. Only two wires got to the central office. If you reverse them the phone will still work but the red should be first.

    Rick, I think you would need a smaller set for guys who spend a lot of time in the cold, like Michigan for example.

    A friend of mine had the same problem. He asked his old biker buddies to take care of it, and they did. They all roared on their hogs and started to demand payment for the drugs they gave him to sell. When said he didn't know what they were talking...

    It is difficult to believe that I have been retired for twenty five years. I had a great job but the times they were a changing. I saw bad times ahead. Hey, I found metaphors in two songs. I worked for the phone company installing telephone...

    retread, Is that what they are? Pray tell us, what are they used for? I spent 37 years in the phone company and I don't remember ever seeing a pair of those before. I also spent three years in the Navy and didn't see them there either. Of course I...

    Hoppe's bore cleaner is devastating to a nickel finish. The stuff was formulated to dissolve copper and that is what is under the nickel. A man I worked with ruined a beautiful nickel finish S&W model 10 by leaving it wrapped in a rag soaked with...

    The problem with old tools such as the one pictured is that they made so many. The phone companies bought them by the thousands. They even had one designed to drill in corners. I bought my last brace drill in a yard sale for a dollar. The same thing...

    The flutes are what concerns me. I used to use my milling machine to start the barrel channel but sadly I no longer have the mill. I think maybe Texas has the right idea. I recently sold a project I had been looking at for over twenty years. It...

    Could someone tell me what it costs to inlet a barreled action? I can finish the stock but to inlet it is beyond my skill level. As you can see it has a fluted barrel.

    I found this peep sight years ago at a big gun show for $15. I never saw another like it. It does make shooting my 39A a lot easier. I wish Lyman still made it.
