Considering the nature of his illness I suspect it may have been a blessing in disguise.

Re: Making your own 6mm flobert in the privacy of your house

Re: Curiouser & curiouser, said Alice! (FAL mags)

Re: Something I can recommend

This varies with bore size. It has 2 parts, a rigid rod with camera head & adjustable light, & a flexible cable th...
