    That was the same problem with the 10 mm. The high pressure destroys the barrels, and factory ammo is expensive. The .40 S&W ammo cost about the same price as 9mm.

    How much does it cost you to...

    Does the wheel weight foul up the barrel? I think that the wheel weights have some zinc in them for added stiffness.

    It's probably similar to a .38 super in performance. The .38 super can hold more shots than a 38-45, and it's easier to find brass for reloading .38 super.

    I don't trust inverters. I had a very expensive Miller plasma cutter go bad on me just after the warranty expired. It would have cost more to repair it than to buy a new one. I feel like I just...

    I have a 3/4 HP motor on my lathe, and it works fine, except for drilling large holes 3/4" or larger. You can't hog metal, but .030"-.040" depth of cut is not a problem. I usually run my lathe on the...

    I think the length of the brazed carbide tool bit is sticking out too far from the tool holder. If you shorten the length of the shaft on the carbide insert it will reduce chatter. These brazed...
