    I have a pool and the hand held scraper/sucker has lead weights with the 3 holes in it for the screws to hold them in place. When they get old and have to get a new one, I take out the lead weights. Frank

    Have a Harbor Freight 14" electric chain saw. Just plug in the battery and off you go. Have a Husky in the garage with 20" bar so save it for the big jobs. But prefer the smaller one as at times I'm unsteady on my feet. Getting old is not for...

    Whatever you do is don't throw out the barrel shroud. The section in the back has the piece where it covers the threads on the receiver and spud for the front guard screw. If you can find a good small ring swedish mauser sporter barrel it can be...

    Maybe start checking out places that do radiator repairs. Tin, lead alloys are used to solder any leaks. Maybe they will sell the drippings from the pots used to melt the alloys. Frank
