    Bodycote has facilities every where. It has been some years since I used them but they were reasonable and did good work back then. I had a customer in Canada that used them for batches of 5000 small...

    I did install the lantern battery on Jan. 27. This one has screw on terminals that are large enough you can check the voltage with the leads hooked up.
    Here are my measured voltages with the...

    Talking about knife/school massacres, I mentioned it in the slam fire shotgun thread. Looking up the list of massacres, the ones I remembered in Japan about 20 to 25 years ago were not on the list....

    Thanks, I was not sure what I had done wrong. Maybe someone made an earlier post and decided to delete it and my post moved up a number.
    You can edit a post for a day or so and "delete" the post is...

    I do have a Vee mike for checking centerless grinding out of round, most people do not.
    I did check a 5 land barrel by measuring the bore with a pin gauge and got .301", using a ID mike from land...

    Quickload is affordable somewhere around $150.00. With standard cases it will do a very good job of estimating velocity with different barrel lengths and powders. It will tell you the percentage of...

    My memory of this may be a little faulty, when I was growing up in the 60s about the only pickups you saw belonged to farmers or ranchers, and a high percentage of them had rifles and shotguns in...

    Assuming I made the post 142 you are referring to (Sometimes a post is deleted by the author), what did I say? Everything I mentioned is part of the public record. There have been many articles...

    I looked at a couple of the latest posts, maybe we are off track again.
    Here are some random thoughts about lowering or maybe not raising the stake.

    I have mentioned news today contributing:...

    If you are referring to AR style rifles, they are not the same as the military uses. They are the right caliber for vermin and the semi-auto feature would be handy if you had lots of the right size...

    The children that are dead are dead. Others saw something monstrous and will be affected for a long time. Remington did not sell the weapon to the perp. He killed his mother and stole it. The .223...

    It is strange that probably most of us have known one of those monsters. One I knew liked to beat up younger but taller kids, he has since been executed.

    A lot of us have guns and use them for...

    Somewhere around 20 years ago Japan had a series of individuals with a knife or knives going into schools and killing children and teachers. It was before the events here with guns. Then I heard...

    I am guessing you are in a low relative humidity area. Evaporative coolers were used extensively in south central Texas till AC became more affordable. It was just barely better than a fan in the...

    Yeah, I paid into medicare for 50 years with no possibility of using it till I was 65. Before I incorporated my business there was no limit as to how much was paid. I could have died anytime and not...

    I have tried to machine 95 durometer urethane in the past and could not do it. Made the same parts in Teflon and it was a piece of cake.
    Recently we mounted our Vortex tube on the machine and could...

    If you use a VFD do you need 2 speeds and multiple pulleys? Motor rewinders do not like to mess with small motors but I think it can be done for more money than new will cost.
    You should be able to...

    I think Empire still has some and will custom make them for you. I have had them make 2 and copied their patterns in making several more from A6 tool steel. I have made both styles, the Luers patent...

    I have heard on the radio that MSAs or HSAs are still available. I had one when the ACA started and my rates doubled. It was going to be canceled within the first year but the government relented and...

    My experience was the same as Camscan's, did not do too many but never had a problem. Some were used in a screw machine others in a manual turret lathe.
    My guess is your problem has to do with speed...

    Make a youtube video and paste a link here. I know I will try and send you something and maybe others also.
    Maybe you could have a sign posted in the video "will teach for food"

    Had no idea you could straighten under power. We straighten small assemblies to less than .001" TIR by indicating the high spot and applying pressure. The straightener in the photo is a Harig spin...

    Just some theory stuff. My dad told me there was a Winchester pump action shotgun that had 2 extractors that would hold a shell if the barrel was removed. He said if fired you could catch the shot in...
