Re: Build Thread - 52 midhandle

Is that the length you are leaving it at or are you taking a little off the back end?

Re: How much curve can I plane from a blank

How much of that padauk do you figure will still be present after you do your shaping?

Re: Gladiators!

Impeccable guns as usual. Would love to see some test shots, or real world video of them in use. What are the specs on the shaft?

Re: Latest roller builds finished

I was looking at the specs and I really like that EVO back. To me it looks like you could even get your handle higher into the build as opposed toileting the standard DR based on the depth of the...

Re: Latest roller builds finished

The first couple rollers I did were enclosed track with no band elevator. They shot horribly very inconsistent. I made four guns like that and they all were very unpredictable when shooting at...

Re: Latest roller builds finished

I remember that article, will have to revisit it. I believe Phil H said he preferred non-bearing rollers, something about the ones with bearings being noisy.

Re: Latest roller builds finished

Thanks Mikel, I used pulleys supplied by Ermes, no bearings. Do you find much of difference with or without bearings? I've used the ones with bearings in the past and I'm not 100% sure they are worth...

How dare you Mikel. "Old School" they are NOT! I prefer the term "Classic":D:D Guys in these parts seem scared of "New School" rollers. With all the lines and whatnot, at least many of the local...

Re: Latest roller builds finished

They are standard rollers with an all wood muzzle. There’s only so much wood you can remove to where it starts to become fragile. I reinforced these with some carbon fiber. They are pretty slim...

Re: Gun porn 62" Light BW Builds

That would look cool. I actually painted the red handle, it was black. The blue one was a special run they made last year. I think they are still available.

Re: How much curve can I plane from a blank

I use two lengths of this aluminum angle and sandwich my lams between it during the glue up. I let my epoxy cure for minimum of 24 hours and then hang like Jon said. Another thing is make sure your...

Re: Gun porn 62" Light BW Builds

Hi Mike, thanks. I was hoping with the mix of woods I used I wouldn't have to add anything BUT, wound up adding 10oz. to the red one and 8oz. to the blue. Got them ballasted really nicely.

No particular reason, I like the look of teak and padauk better.

Re: Tailliez Speargun (Elastic Band Powered) 1938

Re: Mahogany 150 Tuna Gun

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