    It is not a good idea to remove nipples on cap locks. It will cause thread wear, and they will not seat properly after much use.

    Back nearly fifty years ago, myself and some friends used to hunt rattlesnakes. At that time, you could milk them in the field, and then sell the venom to the hospital for very good money per gram. Then the rules changed, and the snakes had to be...

    When you get right down to it, fossil fuel vehicles will be around until the price and efficiency is at a point where people prefer the electric vehicles. Buggy whip factories didn't go out of business because they were outlawed. People just decided...

    Electric vehicles will be great, as long as you don't need a heater or air conditioner. Around here, you need both the same day.

    It takes multiple cycles of oxidation and boil out. For boiling, you need to go 25 minutes for the conversion to work well. If steaming, 20 minutes.

    Yes, I'm not going to miss the two weeks of summer we get! If we're lucky. More snow forecast, that's nine months in a row now.

    I had several break on an original Sharps. Not from forgetting to half cock, they were just poor quality cast springs. I made a spring for it from good steel, and never had it break again.

    It would be good if you could examine the bore on that rifle with a bore scope. Jukar at one time would bore and rifle the barrel from both ends. They weren't too particular if the holes aligned in the middle of the barrel.

    I let my lye soap age around six months before use. Mild as you could ask for. An easy test, wash your hands with it. If it stings, it needs to age more.

    It also helps break down the glue layer in the hide. I always used a fresh water rinse to neutralize the lye. Vinegar tended to tighten the fibers in the hide, making it more difficult to break down properly. I was brain tanning 40-50 hides a year...

    If you get one hard to remove, put it in the deep freeze over night. They will usually come lose then. For a stuck rifle, our shop technique was to put a pad on the work bench, and whack the barrel on it.
