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.

1969 manufacturing process for Remington arms

Came across this nice little documentary/commercial showing the manufacturing of Remington firearms.. I do realize these are not Military firearms... but the production scenes are to die for. The music reminds me of the teacher showing movies at school

Waaait a minute. I watched a lot of that video and didn't see one CNC machine or robot. Those guns were being made by (OMG) actual human beings using primitive lathes and milling machines! Even the stock checkering was being done by hand. Surely those guns were vastly inferior to the ones being made today.

Note that the entire paragraph above should be viewed in the sarcastica font.
If you can't kill it with a 30-06 you ain't in North America.

It'll feel better when it quits hurtin'.
