Well that's it then, nothing but small ID at 400% (so I can be super cool) on all future builds :D:D:D:D

Re: Mahogany 150 Tuna Gun

The epoxy track looks cool, with the clear epoxy you used you can hardly tell it's there.

Re: Mahogany 150 Tuna Gun

Nice job, looks like a solid build. One thing you might want to consider is removing a little material by the line release so there's a little more room to wrap your line on it.

Re: 51" rear handle twins (Gun porn, NSFW)

I actually made a mistake in my description. These have 7.5mm shafts. Haven't had them in the water yet but buoyancy-wise I believe they will be OK. I'll get around to a few test shots later next...

Re: China's own technology spearguns

Exactly what I was thinking. That form of spearfishing seems to be growing in popularity.

Re: Carbon fiber question

I might try a sleeve next time. I don't plan on wrapping the entire gun just for reinforcement at the handle joint. It seems you'd be able to get quite a few wrapped using just one sleeve.

Re: Carbon fiber question

I just got done doing six coats of epoxy on the entire gun and with sanding in between there is no bump. I'll post pics after I get them assembled.

Re: Carbon fiber question

Hi, I just did exactly what you are talking about. Here's how I do it:

After cutting your cloth to size and test fitting it on your gun use some masking tape to tape off the area right next to...

Re: Question about wood inverted roller guns

Channel out some relief on the underside of the gun in line with the pulleys so the hardware doesn't drag against the bottom of the gun.

I built my first inverted a few months ago and I didn't...

Re: Ermesub Double Roller in mid handle?

use 1/8" diameter rod instead of 3/16" which is what most use. Less likely to accidentally fire the gun if it's bumped

Re: Wanted to buy: JBL Magnum muzzle set for Travel Combo smaller gun

Not sure if this is the one from JBL you are after, (It's plastic unfortunately). You can have it for the cost of shipping if you want it.

Re: Completed 53" Midhandle build

It does have a bit of Euro-style in there, square and blocky=boring, ugly!
