    I made Flat springs out of old circular saw blades. I use to find lots of Concrete Wet Saw Blades in the trash at the construction sites that I managed. You can also use hack saw blades for making thinner springs like for sights and trigger...

    The last batch I made for screening. I milled the powder for hours. Then added the binder that had already been milled. I let them mill for an hour , and no clumping. It was mainly because I went from that batch originally intended for pressing....

    The only times that I have had a clumping problem using my HF mill , was when I used a binder or I had the patio misters running in the area of my mill. It will clump up if the mill drum is not level. It makes a clump at the lower end of the drum....

    Those wood sealers work good. But not all the wood sealers on the market at your hardware store. Some of those fill the wood good. But they take a little away from the natural wood finish on some woods. And with a gunstock , you don't have extra...

    That is another myth pushed by less than knowledge people. The 12-gauge max chamber pressure 11,500 PSI except for the 3 1/2". Reality is lots of the light trap and dove loads use faster powders and actually have higher peak pressures than the...

    I did the same on a SKS that I had for hunting. There was no need for a bayonet or cleaning rod while hunting. I too don't like a lot of things hanging on my rifles. I can't stand seeing AR's with all kinds of rails with everything under the sun...

    If you Wet sand using the finish as the lubricant. The sanding dust sticks to the wood. I have seen guys try to wet sand with Water. That just made things worse. On bare wood , it opens the pores wider when it dries. If you use water to wet...

    Are you Wet Sanding and letting the sawdust Mud dry on the stock before you sand for the next coat. I wet sand my stocks with 320 to 400 grit when I use Linseed oil or Tru Oil. As I am wet sanding with the finish like linseed or Tru oil, I rub...

    I have killed over 225 deer with a firearm. The only time I have every had issues with needing more than one shot is when I used bullets designed for much heavier game. They acted like solids. I failed to recover one deer with the firearm.

    I own calibers/barrels in both rimmed and rimless. Both work equally as well. Never owned a 30 Herrett, but I did own a 357 Herrett. It was a great caliber and did as claim but I got tired of the wildcat brass forming. Personally, I would go...

    You mentioned one important thing. You have to clamp the barrel in a Barrel Vise that circles the barrel for a full grip. Trying to hold the barrel in a standard vise , won't keep the barrel from rotating.

    Not even close to being legal for a gunsmith to "confiscate" an unsafe firearm. Unsafe is highly subjective. It might be truly unsafe to fire yet 100% safe as a non-firing display. The gunsmith has ZERO legal rights to "confiscate" said firearm. ...

    Spot on with your analysis. Since the so-called gunsmith has passed that would indicate he was old enough to have worked on older firearms, and he should have been aware of the 10's of millions of manual operated firearms that were designed without...

    I agree with Pietro that the 93 & 95s are not totally safe to use the .308. The one I kept just for my collection and do shoot it only with cast loads. The one I built into a 8mm also is intended for shooting Cast loads. I used a barrel from a...
