    If I were to try to make such an air rifle I think I'd most likely try to figure out a way to attach my air supply remotely. What I mean is that I'd try to set up my air supply so as to be able to carry it in my back pack with a high pressure air...

    My Lee Enfield project is just something on my list of things I want to try to print. I haven't actually started drawing up any models or anything like that but I'm sure it will be somewhat similar to the present K31 mag project I'm working on now....

    After taking the screens off 3 windows to discourage squirrels from my bird feeder this Spring, one learned to play acrobat and do a flip under the gutter and land on the feeder. It's so comical, I just fill the feeder half way and enjoy his...

    You could be right. On the other hand, you could be wrong. I don't really know myself and the only way to find out is to try. The lips of these plastic home made magazines feel pretty rigid to me but I suppose if enough heat is generated in the...

    I don't really know how or if they'll hold up under load and recoil. I have identified what I think will be the weakest link in the whole assembly of components used in this project. That weakness is found in the latch that pivots on the side of...

    mold maker replied to a thread Fast food tipping?? in Our Town
    A tip is supposed to be a personal "Thank You" for above and beyond service. I grew up in an era when 10% was a good tip. If the service you are tipping is the same, why do they expect a higher percent in a tip? The food/hotel price has increased...

    Unless you've experienced that level of chronic pain, you can't imagine the need. I passed a 5X7 mm kidney stone and had 9 teeth pulled at one setting without anything but regular ibuprofen. That said, the constant pain in my lower back is another...

    A little over a month ago I finally got the money together to buy/invest in my first 3D printer. The learning curve is kind of steep but I've finally gotten to where I've started getting some decent prints out of it; not perfect prints just decent...

    Use care adding the MS as you can create an explosive atmosphere, in an enclosed space, compleat with static electricity. Also, too much can cause the dirt to stick to the brass like specks of hard wax, which is extremely hard to remove. I add a...

    Sounds like something a liberal politician would think up to solve a none existent problem. Sometimes corporate lawyers have to do something to make themselves indispensable.

    Everybody forms opinions on misinformation at one time or another. I don't fault Charles for his anti-gun leanings. His foresight in most matters was spot on, and his intellect made him a person to pay close attention to. Above all he had real...

    The cicadas, crickets, locust or whatever keep me company when I'm alone. Especially when I don't want company. It's just a sad fact of life that we get smarter too late to avoid it. As a child, I grew up alone at the other end of nowhere. I...

    yes, you can tumble lube Missouri Bullets in Alox as well as copper coated bullets. Alox is the smokiest common lube ingredient that I know of.

    Oldbrowngun, Welcome to the forum. Alox is the cause of your smoke, but I've also heard that Unique does exacerbate smokiness, depending on the load, Unique starts to burn cleaner as the charge gets to a certain pressure range. If you choose to...

    With age comes a softer voice and when my wife faces the other direction and softly talks, all I hear is muffeled murmer. Why does she always face me and speak loudly while calling me deaf?
