Here's the site I got the hot bluing formula from. http://www.geocities.com/kemays/formula.htm?200813 In my area you must mail order in lye. No one sells it to private citizens anymore. I got it from AAA Chemicals on the web. And when I bought that bag of 30-0-0 fertilzer over at Southern States I h...

That long barreled build atop his home page started out as a beat to crap sewer pipe barreled Yugo M70 parts kit from CFS back when they had them on sale for $79 some years ago. I built it up on a NDS receiver, new two stage trigger and FCG from RSA (Semi auto only, of course.), Chinese gas block be...

Now I'll be famous for something besides seats!

For a few years I was deep into building my own rifles. Built my own refinishing tanks and many home made tools to allow me to do my own professional level work for myself. I set my own rivets, rebarreled a number of my builds. Some with custom long barrels. I use my own home made mag park solution ...

I have never envied the Police their jobs. They must have the patience of saints to put up with this day after day!

You ever have "One of those months"?

This summer has been a real bummer for me. Thanks to slow business I had to cancel going to two of my favorite sidecar get togethers this spring & summer. July has been the worst. Three canceled jobs at the beginning of the month had me almost unemployed for two weeks. Thankfully some good orders st...

That exhaust thing looks like an old EGR off a car!

I like the red & black myself. And I really like that luggage rack!

The dogs we had over the years had it simple. Gotta go? Open the back door and let them out in the back yard. (It's fenced.) Generally they'd go to the furthest corners of the yard to poop as long as I kept the yard shoveled. Otherwise they work their way back to the house because they don't like wa...

I had one of their $10 air grinders last ten years. I use it almost every day in the shop. I bought another one from them for another $10 that was nicer than the first! I have a number of their air tools. All are just terrific. I have a large 16 speed floor model drill press from them that only cost...

On the trailer kit I custom built for myself, I later found the HF tires are junky. One had a bad tread separation on the first trip. It was spectatcular actually. I used a HF spare to get the rig home. I slowed way down too. They actually print "Do not exceed 55 mph" on the wheels and tires! Once h...

Here's the HF winch I bought for my Ural hauler today. http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=98830 With a 20% off coupon, I thought it was a good value. Nice one piece winch gear with heavy rivets. Not three layers of sheet steel in the gear like the cheaper one I had is. ...

Many thanks!

8) My thanks to everyone out there who suddenly started sending me orders for stuff! You have saved my a$$ for July. I can pay my bills now! Usually in the Summer I am turning away business or giving appointments 1-3 months in advance for seatwork. The economy has been so bad this year that I was ju...

They do carry some neat stuff! I'd have bought one of those had I wanted a cargo trailer for the bike. But I wanted a pop up camper type. Took a while to find a good used one of those! If you apply some poly to the wood bed and make a tonneau cover for it you'll have a really classy cargo box! I've ...
