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.

OK is it time to ask for funds? Maybe a few bucks from members to keep this great forum going?

Re: Recover old board posts?

If you see certain images on the Wayback Machine this is what they mean. Picture integrity on the old SRF has to do with not originally posting by the forum method. Most used Photobucket to post photos because it was easy & free for 10-13 years. In 2017 they started their pay to play services so you...

Re: WW I VFW Trophy Rifles

Anyone actually have one of these so they can show some photos of how the rods look in the barrel from a muzzle view and chamber view? Are they the full length of the barrel? Is the bolt face welded or is the firing pin hole intact, just that the pin is cut short? Could you please post some photos o...

Re: LAPLAPING THE LUGS OF A MAUSER BOLT ACTION RIFLE

SPRING LOADED JIG There are no specific measurements for this jig. Each caliber will be different. You’ll notice the body is longer than the shoulder/neck. This is so the body still rides inside the chamber when not compressed; otherwise, the edge of the body will catch on the breech and cause a jam...

LAPLAPING THE LUGS OF A MAUSER BOLT ACTION RIFLE

This is a repost of Metzler's sticky "LAPPING THE LUGS OF A MAUSER BOLT ACTION RIFLE" . He must have paid photo bucket to allow his pictures to remain on the Wayback. This was one of the greats so I am reposting the first part lacking comments. This is his meat of the post. Pictures will be fixed by...

Re: Electrolysis tank repost

So just plug it in and let the electricity do the work for you. After 5 minutes here's what my tank looked like. You know it's working when you see the bubbles coming off the wires. When the bubbles hit the surface, they are full of hydrogen gas. Not enough to start an explosion, since this is being...

This is Gunfreak's 21 Sept 2008 Electrolysis Tank repost . This is a direct copy & paste except I added the photos by the forum method so they stay in place. This was one of the old great stickies.

Re: Bluing video

Startup costs are actually pretty cheap considering the equipment can be used for multiple firearms. I built my first rig for under $50. I agree, lots of the set up can be used stuff. Do you recommend a second tube for soaking filled with Kerosene. It sounds like that is better for long term wear &...
