Re: Coronapocalypse Projects & Pastimes

Nice! I homebrewed a Fender Deluxe several years back, but yours looks more involved than that. What are you building? This is a clone of a Marshall 50-watt tube head: https://i.imgur.com/BrK0II1.jpg Sweet!! You know that we're absolutely going to have to hear a recording of this thing once you get...

Re: Coronapocalypse Projects & Pastimes

I had a week's delay working on my amp waiting for the vacuum-tubes' heater-wires to show up (missing from the kit), but they eventually arrived: https://i.imgur.com/aGqNExh.jpg Many steps later, we now have the turret-board populated with resistors, capacitors and a few diodes: https://i.imgur.com/...

Re: Kimber Ultra Carry II won’t cycle properly

A handful stovepiped, but most never actually moved the slide. I'm betting they did move the slide - but the slide closed again before the catridge even reached the ejector, so the extractor was simply holding it in place and the slide ran the empty case back into the chamber. What ammo was used, a...

Re: Coronapocalypse Projects & Pastimes

O.K. That's the coolest thing I've seen this year. Seriously. I think we need to officially dub you Andy "B.B." C as an homage to one of the fathers of the electric guitar, B.B. King. :tiphat: Well, thank you kindly - plenty of opportunity for this to go up in smoke or kill me yet but it's one of t...

Had a spare piece of redwood about 2 inches thick, cut it to about 12” x 12” and chamfered the corners. Mounted the press to it and recessed the nuts and washers. Clamped it to the bench. Did not want to drill holes in my nice Gladiator bench.
Good move - the press looks nice! :thumbs2:

Re: Coronapocalypse Projects & Pastimes

I'm building a tube-amplifier (guitar) from a kit - I've never done anything like this in my life. I had to make a jig out of scrap wood just to hold it as the chassis constantly needs to be flipped-over. This is where it's at at the moment - still a long way to go: https://i.imgur.com/rs4CPki.jpg h...

Re: Will Truckers and WuFlu get us federal reciprocal CCL?

We don't need a law saying we can, we need the courts to rule against the laws that say we can't. I am a fan of letting people deal with the consequences of their actions in the meantime though. Instead of shutting everyone down, how about, "Sorry, I couldn't take my truck into your state because I...

Re: A Lot of People Are Finding Out You Can’t Just Buy a Gun Online

Guess I'd better double my asking-price for the guns I have for sale ;)

Nah, won't do it.

I'm glad others can benefit :) Sometimes Z-lib has a built-in converter available for the file-type you want, sometimes not. If not, I just upload the file at https://www.epubconverter.com and convert it there - takes a few seconds. I download the converted files from there and transfer them manuall...

https://z-lib.org My dad put me onto this yesterday - no fees, a free account can download 10 books per day (clock seems to reset around 5 pm). They have every novel I could think of plus many, many gun/prepper/survivalist books. Most of them have multiple formats available (PDFs, mobi (Kindle), etc...

R.I. Governor’s plan to end “gun violence”: TAXES!

...the brainiac governor of Rhode Island (Gina Raimondo) thinks that taxing shooting ranges, gun safety courses and hunting clubs that it will reduce ”gun violence“. You can listen to the hearing below. It‘s painfully obvious (and a representative from the governor‘s office even says it) that this ...
