Cutter's old shop is just about cleaned out. His kids have done the darn-near-impossible. Years worth of parts, pieces, projects, toys, and tools have been sorted and relocated. I can't imagine...

Sometimes ya just gotta quit dicking around with a project and get it done. Finally made it out for a "night test" with one of my light sticks. Worked pretty well overall, though a bit time...

HF 20 Ton upgrade

It reminds me more of an adjustment type tool. Kinda like the brake caliper presses, but on a part that would have a 1/2" drive hole for the pin to drop into. Maybe some sort of belt tensioner?

Maybe I can figure all that out if I can get the boy to bring my meter back home. I remember when I used to borrow all my dad's tools from his shop, but I only lived next door so it wasn't a thing. ...

LED target lighting--ideas?

I've wanted to do a night shoot for a few years with my 22lr club, but the timing has never really worked out. It has to be dark, it has to be early enough that folks aren't shooting until midnight,...
