Re: Made a 145cm inverter, 10mm shaft

Holly crap! I have a few friends with 3D printers.... but if that piece is printed in metal, then you are playing in another league!!

I do have a basic shop where I wrench, make some wood guns,...

Re: Bleutec linerelease

If the line release is built in anyway similar to the Meandros LS mech, then it is piece of cake. However I would advise you to find yourself some needle nose pliers (thin ones) or makeshift tool to...

Re: Pathos-inspired Cayman Build (not so pic heavy;-))

Yes, that's what I meant by lanyard... and yes, it makes sense to remove it so you don't burn it while stippling!

Re: Fusion Rollers - Build photos and finished guns

Thanks a lot for the information. This reminds me that I should order that 3M spray adhesive we discussed in another thread... but I don't think that NOW is the appropiate time to do it.

I will...

Re: Aimrite 85cm roller

The shorter and thicker the shaft, the better. You need to add mass and reduce length to gain in ridgidity and punch. I would go as short as the gun allows (flopper resting on the muzzle or almost)...

Re: ghetto style knife sharpening

Frosted side of glass is abrasive only to some extent, which means that if you don't have already a decent edge on the knife, it will not work that well. It is more a hone that a sharpening stone....

Re: Fusion Rollers - Build photos and finished guns

Beautiful guns as always!

Just a question, out of the total build time... how much do you spend in the cutting, and shaping the handles?

Have you looked into making yourself a silicon mold and...

Re: slip-tip auto destruct

I don't use slip tips and I don't shot big fish... but I guess that the culprit of the whole mess was the center-of-mass shot...

I do it as well, as I am far from a sniper, but the truth is that I...

Re: Pathos-inspired Cayman Build (not so pic heavy;-))

Looking good!!! I have to try that checkering one of these days in a gun of mine...

Is the lanyard missing in that picture?

Re: New build - 135 compound roller

Beautiful gun!!!

Any issues bumping arround the muzzle area? The sides seem a bit thin... and while the core takes most of the load on the pulley shaft a bad bump and you could break it.

I know...

Re: Stretched Band Diameters?

Re: Cuttlefish barrels

Mechs are usually made in a way they can adapt to different shaft diameters. If the shaft is resting properly on the track, then it will self-center in the mech, so this should be a non issue. If the...

Re: Band suggestions

Don't use those. They allow water inside the band and in some instances the metal wire has spread open and let go.

There is another Cressi metal insert called CONICAL insert....

Re: ghetto style knife sharpening

If anyone is thinking about a dedicated portable sharpener, have a look at the WorkSharp sharpeners (small belt grinder meant solely for sharpenning).

If you don't have a dremel-like tool, you can...

Re: Sea Hornet Handspear Gun

Congratulations on that last purchase Pete!

Re: Storing wetsuits

You guys are doing it all wrong. Best way is to buy the suit, put it on and don't take it off until it is time to replace it (along with full body skin draft). How you deal with nature calls, is up...

Re: JBL M10 Trigger Mechanism

No input about the mech, but I too was getting that error while trying to access Spearboard as a whole a few days ago. Let's hope it is solved already.

Re: Mount a reel on a wooden gun

Inserts are cool... but the problem is that you are actually cutting through more wood fibers than using a simple screw.

For cheapo inserts, instead of trying to source the uber-expensive...
