    building a cannon...

    Fixing to build a cannon, while it's impractical to shoot where I currently live I'm moving to 30 acres in 4-5 months and I'll have fun with it then. something told me my government covid check was meant to buy some sort of bad ass weapon, and since I already have a few guns I thought the next...

    Santa's around the corner...

    If you know of any Forged in Fire toddler fans, they can ask ol' Saint Nick to put this under the tree this year. What better way to introduce a young'un to his very own fun new hobby of forging. I only wish they had this when I was a kid! :D

    Surface grinder up and running...

    I finally got my surface grinder running in what's going to be my new shop. I wanted it out away from the walls so I did a 10-4 SOOW cord dropping down from the ceiling feeding what I call a "floating 30 amp sub panel." with the VFD powered with 220, the oil pump in the grinder with 110 and four...

    mill on craigslist...

    This is not mine I saw this on Craigs list today, for $200 it might be a good deal. I don't know anything about it. but if nothing else it would more than likely be an accurate drill press...plus milling. It's in the Tampa bay area...

    Prayers going out to all the folks in the path of this hurricane. I saw first hand what Michael did two years ago and it was devastating. in some places it looks like it happened last week.

    Dry ice bath tub

    So after more than once of having my dry ice-acetone bath turn into one of the most inefficient messy operations I've had to do, I came up with an idea here. I think it's a large idea but haven't used it yet. in theory it's a lot better than how I've done it in the past. So I built a simple...

Being a hunter, I naturally swung over and followed him till he turned in and parked, I talked with him a little and snapped this picture of his tailgate. I thought it was pretty awesome. thought I'd share...
