    CastingFool replied to a thread floor sanding in Our Town
    I refinished the hardwood floor in our family room a few years ago. Sanded it down to bare wood, stained it, and applied 3 coats of varathane floor finish. Used an applicator pad, stuff goes on milky, clear when it dries. Wait 24 hrs before...

    Just buy an electrical breaker panel box, mount it close to your main breaker panel and run some fake wiring to it to make it look legit, then store your handguns in there. I don't think a burglar would think of looking inside a breaker panel.

    CastingFool replied to a thread Electronic Earmuff in Our Town
    Some of my buddies like the Howard Leigh impact sport muffs, but I read a report that they don't work all that well indoors, only outdoors. HL does make another model that works well indoors, but they are bulkier. Both run from $44-$50 on Amazon.

    CastingFool replied to a thread I love the country in Our Town
    I, too, live out in the country, and absolutely love it. Just this morning, I could see one rabbit, a couple chipmunks, and a hen turkey with her 11 chicks. She has been coming in for the last 4 days, and so far she has not lost a single one.

    Thank you for reminding the rest of us. D-day took place a few years before I was born, but having been in the military, I get a little emotional thinking about those guys went through, and most importantly, those that never came back.

    Way back when I used to shoot skeet, 700x or Red Dot were the most common powders used for 12 ga skeet loads.

    Have not had a knee replaced, but from what I have heard from others that have, your physical therapist is your friend. Listen to him/her.

    I also have that same micrometer, except mine has a ratchet on the barrel, to keep heavy handed "machinists" from using mikes as clamps. My dad bought it used, and used for a number of years as a machinist. In 1974, it became mine, when I started...

    Among other things I did yesterday, the most interesting was getting dive bombed by a robin, as I checked on the babies in the nest. Mama robin made a nest right between the intake and exhaust pipes for our furnace. It is about 4-1/2' off the...
