Re: JUST FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH

https://www.americanrifleman.org/articles/2014/12/19/throwback-thursday-a-simple-chronograph/ Oh my gosh – I just saw this. I have a regular chronograph but I could never justify in my mind the accuracy because of the design. It works on some kind of shadow principle and I would never just automatic...

JUST TRIVIA

This article doesn’t mention the national championships after the state – maybe this was arranged after this article. I don’t have a good gun for this, but I‘ll be there – Heck, I am here. I just saw that Colt 3rd generation 1873’s going for 3, 4 and 5 thousand for new or as new...what in the world ...

I couldn't figure out how I would sharpen a chisel with it, conveniently, so yes I use it just for knives. I have made an assortment of chisel sharpeners. But, I can use those for knives also, right? :)

Re: IN PASSING & FWTW

DSC_0055.JPG These pliers can be used as bullet pullers – works great...I THINK, no mess like with the inertia type and not as expensive as the collet type...just poke up through the press and grab.

7.35 AMMO

I have never had any trouble reloading for the 7.35 Carcano. I have always had the Hornaday 128 grain bullets and the original 128 grain bullets. I had bought a LEE 7.35 die set. I had plenty of the original ammo which I bought. The primers went bad, but the powder, bullet and brass were good. And I...

Here is another way that can be used to test steel, or any metal for (RELATIVE) hardness. Make an indentation in two specimens and compare the sizes of the two indentations with a magnaviewer .

Here is my diamond indenter – made in China, 12.96 delivered. I have not seen a US made one for less than 200 – do I need a 200 $ indenter – heck no. With this and a piece of 2 x 6, I will make a Rockwell C Hardness Tester.
