    That is what I think. PayPal is a bargain compared to the bite Western Union used to put on sending your kid a few bucks.

    That area didn't burn 5 years ago when mine did. That area hasn't burned in 60+ years. We had heavy rain two weeks ago and things are really green but dead trees and brush will burn in the rain. We try to burn brush on rainy days for safety.

    There are a lot of combination locks here, on gates, pump houses and lockers. Graphite is THE LUBE for Locks but someone will hose a lock with WD40. It will work until the solvent evaporates then it needs another shot. WD40 is Crack Cocaine in a can...

    Mal Paso replied to a thread Brass Mould in Cast Boolits
    Actually tarnish is your friend, keeps the lead/tin from sticking. Heat cycle the mold to 400F a few times to give the mold some color before casting. They used to solder copper pipe to brass fittings with lead/tin alloy and it works well on...

    I remember one bar in Wisconsin that had 5 stages, the main stage had a semi tractor for the backdrop. Drinks were $2 so I tipped well which made it worse as our glasses were never allowed to be empty. All I remember.

    Molds require a lot of setup for a one off project. Commercial molds are very reasonable compared to the man hours to make just one. It would have to be an itch I couldn't scratch any other way. I like the discussion though.

    You can do slab on slab and there are spacer boards the thickness of the tube with slots already cut but ya, in the slab is better. In floor Hydronic is my favorite.

    These are not cheap but mine has paid for itself. I keep it full of ATF and Acetone 50/50 and don't have to worry about the Acetone evaporating. It pressurizes with an air compressor. It holds pressure for years so you could charge it at a gas...

    Maybe these guns have AI and are smuggling themselves into the country. Probably an offshoot of self driving cars.
