    Thanks Markopolo: Dreaming it up and drawing it up is the easy part for me; it's machining it so it ends up looking like my drawings that's the tricky part for me. I just need to take my time but, taking my time is hard for me too. I'm so...

    I edited the microfiber out of your title. Have you thought about Heat treating your 94-3-3 I got about 24BHN, but with lower oven temps, you'll get less hardness.

    If your application would lend toward a motor over heating, if sure would make sense to connect the purple wires as lightman states, so the overloads are in series with the switch.

    Even though I do recall the dollar amount and it was a 1 ton passenger Van, I don't recall all the other details? maybe she had the brakes done too?

    One productive Saturday afternoon/evening, I piled up about 2000 from a NOE 5 cavity mold (358-128-SWC). I did take a break for I guess it was more like two sessions back-to-back...but all in one day. BTW, the week following that...

    No to SSS. I'd just sit back and enjoy the show that Nature offers you. That Hawk might teach you something?

    About 3 decades ago, I gave a girlfriend some automotive tire advice...As in, 'you need tires, your tires are shot' She then proceeded to borrow $800 from me to buy the tires. Six months later we broke up, I haven't heard from her since. I...

    The Last cast Iron thread got me to thinking that I should be looking for a nice vintage #8 to add to my collection. Mostly I cook with a #9 Griswold and find it a tad large sometimes. I found a older Wagner at one antique store for $17. The...

    What really gets my attention are the prices of these after market K31 scope mounts. If they are charging what they're charging for their scope mounts, I wonder what they would charge if they had come up with a design more closely similar to mine?...

    That's an even simpler design with a similar ejection setup as the RockSolid design. I think I'd prefer that latter design for the sake of simplicity but being the cheap-skate that I am, the $119.00 plus shipping price tag would still drive me to...

    I'd love to be able to shoot my K31 with the factory iron site but my eye sight has gotten to the point where even the peep sights that I was using really didn't allow me to get the accuracy I was once able to achieve with a good set of peep sights....

    I have an older version of SolidWorks. I bought a laptop few years ago from a retiring engineer. The laptop had the software on it and I never bothered uninstalling it. I eventually figured out how to use it well enough to start drawing up stuff...

    I had to go looking for them back in the photo archives I had uploaded back when I made the last iteration of this scope mount. The pics below give you an idea of how this type of scope rail was made to fit. You'll be able to tell by comparing...

    I had already made up one of these a while back but I ended up having to alter it to fit my K31 after I'd rebarreled and rechambered it. Now that I reverted this same K31 Rifle back to its' native chambering, I couldn't use the previously made...

    In my previous residence, I had installed a gas furnace and was impressed, so I did the same here a few years later. The first was plumbed with black iron and the next with a flexible line coated with a yellow plastic. I never got an ad suggesting...
