    Cleaning and filing the contacts may get you a little more life out of the switch, but it’s been my experience, that once they are worn out, it makes the most sense to replace the switch. Things to consider are the size of your pressure tank and...

    I’ve never had a tumbler. I would have liked to, but it never worked it’s way to the top of my reloading budget’s list. However, I have been impressed with the wet type that are becoming popular. If I were to buy a tumbler today, I would spend the...

    I just realized I committed on an older thread while following links to the video. So I’ve copied it here. I watched the video and it was impressive. However, I’m not crazy about more moving parts with probably high tolerances. If the rifle wasn’t...

    So if there’s nothing under the hood, does that give you a trunk in your pickup?

    I remember seeing batteries like that when I was a kid, in the basement of my grandmother’s old house. I think they were once used to power the doorbells etc.

    I’ve never heard about that being done. It’s an interesting concept shooting something into a live tree. Is it something propelled by gunpowder? Can someone tell us more about it?

    GregLaROCHE replied to a thread chainsaw mill in Our Town
    There used to be a very simple and inexpensive version, that attached to the chainsaw and used a 2x4 as a guide. I don’t know if they still exist. They were popular for squaring up logs, but not really up to the job of cutting a lot of boards.

    We once canned 350 1 and 1.5 quart mason jars of vegetables from our garden. Five years later we were still opening them. Has anyone had experience canning vegetables with natural fermentation the same as sauerkraut?

    I’ve been wondering what to do to a gun that, unfortunately got some rust on the barrel while it was stored. I have considered rust bluing and wondered if I needed to plug the barrel. I thought I probably should.

    Are they the calibers you shoot? If so, shoot them. The pencil test is an inexpensive way to get an idea of their hardness.

    GregLaROCHE replied to a thread chainsaw mill in Our Town
    I always grind down the rakers, so the saw will dig in and cut as much as you want. It will bog down a saw if you force it too much. I had a piston and cylinder replaced in a Husqvarna 266 once and soon after I burnt it up again. It was very hot and...

    You are probably casting too hot and/or cutting the sprue too soon. If you start out ok and then you get the smearing, your mold is getting too hot and you need to slow down or start cooling the mold on a damp cloth. You can also double check...

    I started using an Alaskan mill close to thirty years ago. It worked great in the Alaskan Bush where there weren’t any saw mills. There wasn’t any near me. It works great for soft woods, but slower on hard woods. You need a big saw however. The...

    If you are cleaning as you say, your mold is probably clean enough. Molds that haven’t had all oils removed, usually end up throwing wrinkled Boolits. Possibly adding some tin or adjusting temperatures may help. Sometimes getting a mold to do what...
