    Hoarding Strikes Again!!!

    Went to my local sources today and learned that there were no lube grooves to be found. I immediately thought of Waksupi, but learned he is apparently occupied cutting up meat. What to do? What to do?

    I have a spare bucket of lube grooves in the basement. I can email them to you if you would like.

    I found a huge stockpile of lube grooves at my local AutoZone store. They were right next to a large shelf of blinker fluid.

    The ones I had hoarded were sucked up when the black helicopters hovered up for too long a time. Next set is going under concrete.

    Sorry I can’t help you out on the lube grooves, but I do have a large stock of assorted size holes. You may be able to use them in a pinch.

    Thanks for the help with the lube grooves. A kind benefactor has traded me some for some primer pockets I had laid a way. Dang hoarders!

    Speakin' of the Asperly Aimless, I have two; an old original "Gentleman's Kitchen Model" and a new "Tacticool Model." I am wondering if anyone has done any tests with using powder coated boolits in the "Gentleman's Kitchen Model"? I thought of this when I realized I was almost out of lube grooves. Might be useful to know if the hoarding continues. I use only carbide plated tungsten in the "Tacticool."

    Doughty can't help you out on your two Asperly aimless rifles I have the 30 lightspeed shoulder buster heavy rifle . It takes 5 lube grooves per round.

    No lube grooves, but I did see a fresh batch of canooter valves at the local 5 and dime!

    Is this an advanced version of their Garden Gun?
    Meant for shooting sabertooth cockroaches before they run back under the fridge when the kitchen light goes on?
    If so, it must have their new thermal+low-light heads-up display scope.

    Blinker Fluid, huh? We recently acquired a big diesel truck that uses ... Exhaust Fluid. I'd never heard of it but it's diluted urea (pee?) injected into the exhaust stream.

    So, stop for fuel, top up the exhaust fluid, grease the muffler bearing and away you go.

    So blinker fluid probably isn't far off.

    I have some sailboat fuel I might be willing to trade for anything. Got an old pipe stretcher and smoke sifter laying around too that I may trade.

    Yep. Like the other feller said, I found some lube grooves in the local auto store. Right next to the muffler belts. I told them they probably wouldn't sell to good unless they put them over by the blinker fluid.

    Every time I have sailboat fuel my bride says, "No more baked beans for you!". I got by the lube groove problem by paper patching. But, I use Charmin now I can't get that!

    When are you guys going to learn. I have been stockpiling lube grooves for 30 years (and no, they aren't for sale). I keep them under my casting bench right next to my rebar stretcher and left handed smoke bender.

    Of course they have them.

    They're just saving them in the back, and only selling 'em to their buddies.

    So, nobody 's done anything with the powder coat. At least that they'll admit to. We'll I guess I'll just stick with the lube grooves, now that I've got some. Now you guys quit bothering me. I've got to go sew some primer pockets on my powder coat.
