    fixit replied to a thread Unicorn ? in Our Chapel

    fixit replied to a thread Lubing door hinges in Our Town
    The best product for hinges and mechanisms I've found is something called MY T grease. It is an aerosol lube that sprays on liquid, but quickly turns to a gel. It stays where you spray it, and it's good for freeing up frozen mechanisms, particularly...

    Forging makes sense, however, investment casting would probably bring cost down, with a net balance on strength. Rugers call.

    Investment casting would make sense, since it greatly reduces machining, and with a well operated process, it's actually stronger than machined from block parts! However, in answer to your question, I have no idea.

    The short ones might be from someone trying to meet the rediculous straight wall cartridge length rules that some states have...... I have 20 such adapted rounds for Indiana's own annoying history with such rules. While long for my state's rules,...

    fixit replied to a thread Sterling Gun Drills in Our Town
    I ran set up on several banks of gun drills.... interesting machines! Deep hole drilling machines can bore holes faster than you ever thought possible, and to shocking tolerances, then you can add gun reaming, which was just beginning to be a thing...

    I don't believe that vaccines cause autism.... however, I suspect the way they are administered could have a causative effect. The standard operational process overloads a kid's not yet developed immune system as they give an entire raft of vaccines...
