Re: Help with epoxy ratio

It doesn't sound like you had a ratio problem, you just let it sit in the cup too long. Epoxy is exothermic, so if it sits mixed in any sort of volume (cup/bucket), it heats up.. the warmer it gets,...

Re: A Good Vaccum Pump/Set-Up?

A long time ago I took the pump out of an old refrigerator & used it for a vacuum pump. It worked fine, very quiet. I don't remember exactly how much vacuum it produced, but I suspect it was in the...

Thanks!

It's Samoan grown teak. The bands just stay... friction!

Re: New 52 inch all-arounder mid handle

It's an old type 14 #7 that I got off ebay. I have not tuned it, it runs pretty well as is. back in the 90's I worked at a boat shop & used one of these a lot for truing up blanks and shaping spruce...

Re: New 52 inch all-arounder mid handle

Oh yeah? that sucks.. I am a bit concerned about it creeping slowly, but it hasn't shown any movement yet. What diameter are your holes? I used a counterbore, so there actually is 1/4"+ past the thru...

Re: New 52 inch all-arounder mid handle

I will admit to using a table saw and thickness planer for the blank, as well as a router with a fence (no router table) and a drill press. All the shaping and tapers were done with hand planes, a...

Re: New 52 inch all-arounder mid handle

I used SolidWorks, fairly easy to use, but not cheap.... The main reasons that I like to model a gun first are for aesthetics/feel and for volume/mass calculations. It allows me to figure out exactly...

Re: Best Plane for shaping a gun stock?

The thing to remember about planes is that the longer the plane, the straighter/flatter it's going to make the work piece. I have a very basic set of planes, an old Stanley #7 jointer (22 inches...

Re: Nicaragua for thanksgiving

Sounds good! I'll definitely bring the big gun along.. Good to know about water temps, I might bring my 6-5-4 surf suit instead of the 3-2 I was planning to bring...

Re: Nicaragua for thanksgiving

I'm going to be in San Juan del Sur over Christmas, any recommendations on shore dive spots or spear-friendly boats/pangas? Should I bother bringing my 61" 4 band gun?

Thanks, Jonah

Re: The 2011-2012 Mushroom Thread

Nice haul guys! It's been spotty for boletes locally, but the coastal chanterelles have started up pretty good.

My girlfriend and I went to one of our spots yesterday & it was going off, we filled...

Re: 6/5/11 Big Sur Report

Sitting on the kitchen counter at the moment... I think I'll look up a recipe & cook 'em tonight.

I've had them before & they're pretty good, just not as flavorful as a bolete or chanterelle.

Re: Carmel Conditions 6.3.11

Looking forward to your report, I was hoping to head down that way on Sunday... 10ft in Carmel does not sound promising.

Re: Euro Metal Muzzle idea, need feedback

If you are going to do carbon, you can just lay it up in place with packing tape over the end of the gun. Then pop it off, clean up the edges & screw/bond it back in place. The cool thing about that...
