Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: TOO BAD

DSC_0009.JPG For What It’s Worth, and it sure works good as a steel Case Hardener. I bought a one pound can years ago for $1 and still have plenty.

Re: TOO BAD

FRUIT – That is what Fruit Bats eat. If you can imagine with those skinny legs and wings there would not be much to pick on. As I said, the main piece of meat is the head. That’s right, one good suck on that and that is all you get, plus the stomach. I saw on the restaurant menu of the Guam Hilton, ...

IN PASSING – Humidity...Guam story...For two years, 75-77 I was working on the island of Guam. There was a story, ‘In God we trust, in Guam we rust’. Which was generally true... It was said by some that one could actually hear the steel rust with the ‘snap, crackle and pop’. Now with my un aided hea...

TOO BAD

I just read where a bunch of guys have said that they can’t get out to do any shooting lately because of the heat, humidity and bugs. Here we are also having record breaking temperatures, but nothing like the rest of the country. For the last couple of months it is usually right around 40 degrees ev...

BRASS CLEANING

DSC_0007.JPG I see where some have trouble with brass cleaning with vibrator type cleaners....I see it as ‘all vibrators are not created equal’...’all vibrator cleaning media is not created equal’...and all vibrator users are not created equal.

Re: JUST FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH

Remember the other day when I said that I could quench O-1 steel in Elephant pee. Well the author of this article realizes this also. Look at page 40, note (4). I knew this when I said it. I know what a spray bottle is. I know what a Heat Treating Spray-Booth is. When a shade-tree blacksmith says th...

Re: BULLET COATING

Nothing earth shattering here...but just what I have been finding out on Bullet Coating in the past couple of days. I would say the only reason that I may do it is to make some pretty bullets, but I don’t have the needs that some others may have. So far the only reason that I can see to do it is to ...

Re: ETC-ETC

Think of this funny story – The back yard Black Smith knows that they know how heat treating works where as the PHD of Metallurgy knows that he doesn’t ‘really’ know how heat treating of metal works. It’s pretty darn hard to get inside that piece of hot metal to see just what is going on in there.
