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: new .32 French long

The starline brass deal is too reasonable to pass on. I can likely fix this stuff if it does not work. 32 S&W long brass costs money too, so the xtra machining costs to me would be silly even though I have custom tooling and know my why around a manual turret lathe. I figure the only thing that coul...

Re: new .32 French long

Just ordered 250 cases myself. They do look similar. I will check the dimensions once my cases arrive. I have about five sets of calipers here or at work, not to mention micrometers. I'm really interested in the rim thickness. Best Regards, Mark Checked GB for M1935's..... Not exactly many for sale.

Re: new .32 French long

Optical comparitor here is faint to read, but maybe it will work with some doing. I am due to buy 250 today from Sterline direct. Might see about some 45/70 while I am at it.

I hope that stuff works though.

Best regards,

Re: 7.65 French Long.

Okay, the official name is....steel red layout fluid by Dykem. Just happen to have a bottle in front of me to look at. Hope that helps.

Re: 7.65 French Long.

It is made by Dykem and is used to put on steel and then you can mark on the steel with a sharp object so you can see what you are doing to it. Great for seeing where your tool hits the metal when you are dealing in .001" of an inch. It also tends to stay on better than a sharpie pen, even if wet. I...

Re: new .32 French long

The rim thickness and diameter of the ejector groove are important here. Also the angle on the ejector groove is not exactly unimportant. I don't have a optical comparator to work with and measure this nymore on this though as I switched shops. 250 cases for $55 is a deal though. Somebody tell me if...

Re: 7.65 French Long.

Hey, 72USMC, did the cases I send you fire okay? Never heard from you on that. Mine worked just fine in a M1935A. Still trying to figure out how to get a 400 pound lathe in my garage. I did update the power in the garage to take it. I found some commercial manufacturers of 7.65mm Long did a inconsis...

Re: Alliant 2400 With Cast Bullets

I will have to try some unsized bullets. I might have to try red dot as well.

Re: my first table at gun show

You could posts this in the "For Sale" section of the forum. I cannot read all the descriptions on the butt stocks, especially the top one in the first picture and the bottom two in the second picture. You could detail this in your post. I do not believe the forum charges a dime for anything sold in...

Re: USAF Museum Virtual Tour

The radial engines eat a lot of gas for sure. I remember some old hands from Northwest Airlines who worked on the old "Constellation" four engined prop airlines telling me how much more maintenance they were than a jet. I do know each and every bolt on the engine has to be wired down less it vibrate...

Re: USAF Museum Virtual Tour

Did FiFi charge you to look inside? I was lucky enough to look inside a few B-25's when they were here for free. I think there is a B-17 or B-25 30 minutes north of here that charges $300 for a short ride. I wonder if you get a group discount on that? The Waco museum is a bit north of here and I hav...

Re: USAF Museum Virtual Tour

Movie, you don't need no stinking movie. Or is that badges? Once I got used to the interface, the tour become very impressive. From one vantage point you can do a very real 360 scan. It is all there like I have seen in person. Of course, you don't get to walk inside the B-29 fuselage and bump your h...

Re: Sinking of the Coventry

Those bombers were used to drop supplies during the Rhine landings in 1945 at low level and they got shot up pretty bad so you were pretty much on the money as in knowing what they were designed to do and not to do. The carpet bombing done in Normandy was done far higher and they hit our own troops ...

USAF Museum Virtual Tour

I found this while looking up the museum's website. I'm usually skeptical of these virtual tours, but I was impressed by this one since i know the museum like the back of my hand since I grew up here and make a few visits every year it seems. While the full scale space shuttle exhibit and the Memphi...

Re: Sinking of the Coventry

A high school friend's father was aboard that destroyer. None the less, I stand by my words. Most sea actions off Guadalcanal resulted in mostly destroyer loses. Cruisers and battleships generally take far more damage. Japanese kamikaze attacks failed to sink even one light CVL carrier. The only one...
