    Guns and targets

    My younger son who loves guns sent it to me and I thought is was a good video to help me and others to be more aware of the danger when target shooting. I also had a close call ten years ago with a Pieta 1858 Remington with 45 colt conversion cylinder. My older son does reloading on a Lee...

    Todays shop time

    My son picked up a free Alpiner wood stove this weekend to replace a homemade one that is 25 years old, he had to relocate the smoke outlet to the top side and he wanted runners on the stove leg's. I used a carbon arc gouger to remove the outlet, works real good depending how steady one's hand...

I notice this time at Messick's they gave shipping quote right up front, I complained about that 4 years ago, I dont like buy stuff without knowing shipping cost, sometimes that...

    My red-neck seat spring didn't last long, I know I was shocked to. All the ebay ones was for the BX and I thought a little pricy at $30.00. Now the $18.00 dollar question, use both new springs, just replace the one thats broke or buy a new tractor.........

    I used one of these long blow-guns from HF, I drill out the hole in the restrictor to get more flow, now it real blows the dirt out from the walls. I bought it to blow tractor radiator out, I have another air restrictor to screw back in if it's now to much...

    The cost of building might be on the rise

    This has got to be a misprint or the real reason more do-it-yourselfers buying portable sawmills.....
