Re: When Guns Are Not Allowed - The Fish Lasso (A Rubber Actuated Snare)

For some reason halibut is quite rare in Denmark, not sure if spearos even take some once in a while. Don’t know if it’s a salinity, temperature or “habitat” issue.
When I watch videos from Norway...

Re: When Guns Are Not Allowed - The Fish Lasso (A Rubber Actuated Snare)

Ah, hope the Danes treated you well. It always freaks me out when people have visited in winter time as we shy away from human contact and hurriedly crawl into our nicely designed Ikea-laden homes...

Re: What To Do About Rubber Rot (gummy bungees)?

Yeah, I think I got some snippets of yours from a friend and dealer in China. Definitely doesn't have that tearing issue as a lot of silicones. Was just out of it, so had to resort to the "classic"...

Re: What To Do About Rubber Rot (gummy bungees)?

I read up on this and Pete is right on the reversing process of rubber (makes sense he would be as I think he spent some years in the tire industry).
Both natural and synthetic rubber wants to...

When Guns Are Not Allowed - The Fish Lasso (A Rubber Actuated Snare)

I did indeed have you in mind when I subtitled the videos and wrote this post - figured you’d be interested in it and perhaps a few more folks, too.
I think our cod is Atlantic cod and they can be...

When Guns Are Not Allowed - The Fish Lasso (A Rubber Actuated Snare)

From the cold northern home waters of my ancestral Denmark, I bring you The Fish Lasso.
Actually, scrap that, I am only the messenger and Denmark, whilst still Scandinavia is not exactly freezing...

What To Do About Rubber Rot (gummy bungees)?

So, I am running into an issue with my bungees disintegrating.
Goes something like this: first the surface gets tacky, then gummy and finally, cracks develop and the bungee fails.
For a long...

Rob Allen Tests Stainless Trigger Mechs

Itís common to test pretty much anything mechanical at higher than normal operating forces. But I get your point that it is not a normal load for simulating shots. My feeling is that the galling...

Rob Allen Tests Stainless Trigger Mechs

I like the idea of having an engineering mind, but Pete is one of the real engineers here. Thanks anyway:-)
I think the jerking you saw was just from the shot. The test bench uses an air cylinder to...

Re: Rob Allen Tests Stainless Trigger Mechs

In reg. to your comment on the RA video about if this was a real world issue, no brands would use SS triggers, you'd be surprised... A lot of products are not made to be as good as they can be and...

Re: Anyone try Interceptor speargun?

I think the Syil is OK for small production runs for sure. It sits in between a CNC'ed manual mill and something like a Haas. But when talking prices, a Syil is actually considered very affordable or...

Re: Anyone try Interceptor speargun?

If yours is a manual Sieg or one of the clones, I think you’ll be fine. They are generally simple and sorted. But the cheapest CNC offerings are sometimes not. Eg. a lot of them use USB for sending...

Re: Anyone try Interceptor speargun?

That's very cool and thanks so much for elaborating.
I guess your professional background might have made it a little easier for you to get the hang of running a CNC router? I have been reading and...

Re: Anyone try Interceptor speargun?

I don't think Interceptor, at this point, is the breadwinner for the man behind it. Maybe it is, maybe it isn't but I am fairly sure he was/is a banker. Maybe it is much more of a hobby project for...

Re: Anyone try Interceptor speargun?

I think you are correct that the orange part of the wishbone is the changeable one.

I donít think the flopper sticking down is a huge thing - On my airguns, I can rotate the shafts and tend to...

Re: Anyone try Interceptor speargun?

They look great and the promo video has some stunning visuals - though the words have too much marketing fluff perhaps even written by engineers which is not always a great combo:-)

Re: Best Railgun/Pipe gun handle

As for Pathos D'II and money, prolly referring to replacing the trigger. Can't remember if the drop-in double roller trigger from Ermes is fully sorted out for that handle yet, though but others can...

Re: Metal wishbone FAILURE

One little, perhaps obvious, remark from here - some shafts also come with nasty sharkfins on them from the factory. I've had some with very sharp burs and also one where the top of the fin was just...

Re: Gladiator Spartacus V2 120

Beautiful gun, again;)
The raised name plate is a cool, but I hope it wont be a knuckle buster when loading.
Thanks for sharing all this info and details, it's hugely inspiring.

Re: Trigger Mechanism Design Rules

My take on extremely long triggers is that they don't make much sense if you chest load... My thinking is that each of us has a minimum distance we need from rear-most fin to the loading butt in...

Re: Shout out to Majd

It's days like these I really wish this forum has a "like" or thumbs up button.
I can imagine what he did for you and yes, the man deserves all the praise he can get.

Doggies - can an inverted roller really cut the mustard??

Thanks for weighing in:-)
I am thinking there might be small advantage in having the fish behind the rear barb - you’ll have the tip of the shaft further out on the “other side” so it can’t cut up...

Re: Doggies - can an inverted roller really cut the mustard??

Sorry for still being daft on this matter;)
But I have been thinking about the double offset flopper shafts and still can't understand exactly why they are better?
The way I see it (right now) is...
