Re: Abbreviated profanity

Good... I think this is a good stance. This is one of the few places on the internet that I don't hesitate to refer folks to. I think of it as a work conversation with mixed company. There may be things I'd say a certain way if I was on the deer lease but if I'm having the same conversation prior to...

Re: Houston to edge past Chicago

I ran into this type complaint some years back when a Chicago transplant colleague was bemoaning how much better and smarter things were done in Chicago. I politely suggested she move back to Chicago. She stared at me for a good ten seconds and NEVER complained about Houston again, at least in my p...

Re: Calling mechanical engineers.

Charles. I was just looking for something in the "my posts" section and noticed I called you Chuck in this thread. While I was typing it, my wife and I were having a conversation about a friend of ours named Chuck. Proves that I can't multi-task. My apologies for the typo. Didn't want you to think I...

Re: Calling mechanical engineers.

Also, at the connection points between the lower trolley mast connection and the trolley, and the antenna support and the trolley, there should be gussets (some may call these stiffeners).

My two more cents.

Re: Calling mechanical engineers.

Let me know if I can help get this done. I'm a mechanical engineer by degree but have worked Construction for 25+ years and put myself through school as a welder.

Good luck with your project.

Re: Calling mechanical engineers.

Chuck. I would recommend making your trolley with a second connection point maybe 5 feet below where it attaches to the mast. This gives you a five foot moment arm on the trolley. Rather than use guy wires in the method you describe, make the antenna connection on top of the trolley five feet high (...

Re: New (to me) M1A Range Report

Update... Progress on optics... Sadlack Industries scope mount... Very sweet! Looks like the old gal is going to get some eyes. Did you find the receiver and mount were a good fit? I was always reluctant to explore the dimensional quality of the receiver when I had the rifle. Nice job! I look forwa...

Re: Black Activists Call for Lynching and Hanging of White People and Cops

We are in the process of downsizing our "in town" digs (recent empty nesters) and looking at rural properties. At some point we'll begin to split our time between town and rural but have rural as a fall back if we needed it. As I said in a recent post, if I wanted to get really off the grid, I'd be ...

Re: Holster Help!

...also, I believe the Infidel holster from Comp-Tac will work for you. It's full kydex but has a backing that covers the entire slide so that only the grip is exposed.

If you like small of back, you'd probably want to order the oposite hand...

Good luck...

Re: Holster Help!

Comp-Tac MTAC is the one I use. If you want to wear in the small of your back, you may want to order the opposite hand from your strong hand. The cant is adjustable and it is leather backed (also could get horsehide leather as well I think). I also wear snug fitting cotton t-shirts to help with swea...

Mrs. RJ and I joke sometimes about going "off the grid"... This nonsense is making that feel less like a joke every day...

Re: Black Activists Call for Lynching and Hanging of White People and Cops

When does rhetoric protected by the 1st Amendment become a terroristic threat? I would think someone holding a weapon and shouting at police that he intended to kill police would approach that line...
