Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: Spurs

Yeah right, there's a reason it's called cutthroat, because that is exactly what I would do if I tried to shave with that.

Using straight razors to shave is an art all of its own........Those who can do, those who can't bleed to death!

1943 SA M1 Garand

Well here is my first M1 Garand it's a July 1943 manufactured Springfield Armory rifle. She isn't the prettiest Garand out there, and there are many like her, but this one is mine. Here are some quick inside pictures, seeing its raining in Florida for the next week or so due to a Tropical Depression...

Re: Spanish Am War Magic Lantern set 1

Some years back I saw a set like this on the "Antique Roadshow" I think it was. I don't know if shows can be searched to find the content of the shows. Only reason I remember it, was because some of the pictures are actual pictures and some are drawings/etchings/paintings or whatever they are. Regar...

Heat Lot and DOM Help!

For some of yall the information is as easy and basic as your address, which impresses me. Trying to nail down the vintage of the parts on my 1943 SA Garand and I am lost as heck. All I've done so far is a basic break down into 3 assemblies (Removed the trigger group and separate the receive and bar...

Re: Memphis Belle On Display At USAF Museum

Thank you for that link on the history of the plane. Fantastic read. What a shame so much of WW II and WWI combat machines are gone. And to think had the City of Memphis not bought her, she would have met Captain Crunch. So yeah she suffered in Memphis for years, but that was what ultimately saved ...

Coles Distributing Fire

Saw on another forum that Coles Distributing (CDISales on GB) had a fire in their complex/warehouse and it was a complete/total loss of all their inventory. They've pulled all their GB auctions.

Re: Memphis Belle On Display At USAF Museum

I'm glad they listened to him and I bet that meant a lot. Somehow I don't think he was their first special tour for a veteran after hearing your story and hopefully not their last. I shall have to ask one of the volunteers how often they do that and thank them for that. That's really going above an...

Re: Memphis Belle On Display At USAF Museum

Glad to hear they let your Dad have a grand tour. The volunteer guides are mostly retired USAF personnel. They do have an open F-4 cockpit section on display you are allowed to climb into someplace. If your Dad got to go into the full aircraft on display, that was exceptionally nice of them. I imag...

Re: Memphis Belle On Display At USAF Museum

The USAF Museum is top notch in my book. When my dad was terminal, some model club buddies of his flew him up there and arranged a private tour of the museum before normal hours. The museum even took the ropes down and let him crawl around the F-4 Phantom, before he left he placed his old crew chief...
