Re: Salvimar Hero

As for the plastic that mirrors my own observation with the handle and muzzle on their Predathor air gun. I speculate the might use a plastic with a lot of fiber mixed in. It certainly feels strong...

Re: Farewell Spearboard Friends

Same old story with this place. And honestly the behind the scenes bullying - as well as the off-topic-BS in many threads - is one of the reasons it took me forever to sign up. Funnily enough the...

Re: Salvimar Hero

Sounds good!
There's a fair bit of old hate for Salvimar's pipe guns in the archives here. I speculate, most of it from when they just launched and then since, no one has really uttered a word....

Re: Hugs your guns tonight

Kinda same thing happened to me in reverse!
I was diving from a spot that sees a whole lot of different water people. There are cliff jumpers, fishermen, spearos, freedivers and scuba divers pretty...

Re: Inverted roller

Why don't you try it? Personally, I still believe the friction will be much higher. I used to race competition sailboats and in a pinch, if a pulley broke, you could get by with a shackle instead but...

Re: Inverted roller

Hey Doyen,
It's a four year old thread and I noticed neither Nanna or Pete has, unfortunately, been active on the forum for some time.
As for your question, I am not sure what you are asking? But...

Re: Advice on roller muzzle/CF attachment and muzzle flip on hybrid roller?

Good point about leaving some room for the lead if you decide to plug the barrel. I went with a foam plug glassed in place on this little "build" here...

Re: Advice on roller muzzle/CF attachment and muzzle flip on hybrid roller?

Bear in mind, I haven't built a gun from scratch and mostly shoot airguns, but anyways here are some thoughts.
Muzzle flip is mostly a consequence of a low handle. You will have less since it is a...

Re: Cutting a carbon barrel?

Hacksaw blade will do. You can wrap some tape around the tube, it should help a little with the fraying but it wont be too bad.
I have cut tubes on a miter saw, too. I think it might have had an...

Re: tests before selling wood

There are zero standards in this industry and the tests range from nothing (many brand name euro guns) to a builder setting up and test shooting each individual gun.

Now, here follows my personal...

Re: Our friend has passed. Kostadin SEAL

I can't figure out if the FRV is cheap or expensive, though as a freelancer with very varying income I sometimes think the latter. Furthermore, what is expensive to one man, is cheap to another so I...

Re: Double Roller Trigger for Pathos handle, Ermes Sub

Thanks for elaborating. I was hoping that if the jig was precise and holds enough parts (sears) it could still be doable and feasible pretty much by dropping and locking in the parts. I don't think...

Re: POL:Make Spearboard Great Again

When censorship grants me freedom from the crap in PnR (and this attempt at dumbing down the issue) I happily vote for censorship.

Re: Double Roller Trigger for Pathos handle, Ermes Sub

I don't want to sound the least bit know-it-all'ish but when I saw the front cradle design I have to admit, I was slightly confused. The thing that caught my eye was that the area of contact is so...

Re: Bands with no holes

I'd love to see your inserts. Incidentally, I just cut a few on my little lathe the other day and downsized them a tad from the plastic inserts I bought in the US. I reduced the outer diameter of the...

Re: Rubber crumb

If it doesn't have to be rubber, then we have talked about carborundum here before. I have some on a very nice Pathos grip I made and on a few other guns. If you can't find anyone who sells it, then...

Re: Inverted roller - Upgraded to Vela System

I am still 90% an airgun devotee but do try to educate myself on pulley rollers so your point about not wanting the bands to fall off and flap around got me confused. Don't you need to unhook the two...

Re: Alemanni Demultiplied Rollerguns

Upload them to youtube or vimeo and share the link here, that should work.
As for format, normally H264 works but most editing softwares have export presets now, so you can just use something that...

Re: Loading Polespear-At the surface? At the bottom?When you see a fish?

Now that I've had some more time in on my diy polespear I can add a little to this thread; I installed a rest hook on my spear so I pretty much always load on the surface. I use a single small ID...

Imersion US dealer?

If you don't find any, then bands shouldn't really be brand specific. Even if you have screw-in bands you should be able to find replacements from other manufacturers. Just measure the size of the...

strengthen by carbon fiber

I think you have to just bite the bullet and get going with sandpaper on a block. You might be able to snip off the worst strands with sharp pliers or shears depending on the cloth thickness....
