Don’t get me wrong. I love my PrimeWeld 225X AC/DC TIG-Stick welder. Simply a fantastic machine…..even if it cost twice as much. Selling for under $1000 with top quality build, accessories and warrantee…It’s the bargain of the century! But why on God’s Green Earth did they put the power switch on the back of the
Lots of videos on my Tractor Electric Conversions (Hint: Click on the video below and to see the next video, click on the Fast Forward button on the bottom left of the playing video…..There are over 20 videos of electric tractors in action!)
If you saw the other article I wrote a month ago about the TORO “Lawn” Tractor that I converted to electric, you saw that the “Operation was a success….But the patient died!” The little “Lawn” tractor’s transmission and tiny axles could not stand up to the massive instantaneous torque of the Motenergy ME1004, 13HP, electric
Recently I replaced my “Soft” Roof Top Tent (RTT) with a smaller, “Hard” RTT. The soft tent was an “Overlander” from Smittybilt. The replacement is from Roofnest and I went with the lowest profile RTT on the market, the Falcon. There were two reasons for the move….One was the Overlander was a bear to fold
A few years ago I installed a rather involved solar system in my Forest River RR19 Toy Hauler travel trailer. Back then, with a single Lithium battery costing over $1000 I decided to go the AGM (Absorb Glass Mat) route. You can read all about this project on another article here on my web page:
PROPER 17HMR BORE GUIDE!
When Hornady developed the 17HMR rimfire cartridge, they really hit a home-run! And the rifle manufacturers turned out a plethora of rifles to chamber it.
But unlike the 22RF cartridge, which many seasoned shooters will tell you, might never need to have the bore scrubbed, the 17HMR with its “real” copper jacketed bullet and its extreme velocity, needs bore cleaning often.
The problem is, no one makes a “proper” bore guide for this type of rifle. Most 17HMR rifles are nothing more than 22RFM rifles with a 17cal barrel. And many of these 22RF rifles have one issue when you try to use a standard bore guide that protects the delicate chamber edge and the bottle neck area of the chamber. A fixed ejector is in the way.
This little “shark fin” is right in line with the chamber and is fixed. It doesn’t move out of the way. Therefore the bore guide you might use for your centerfire rifles will not pass by and work in this rifle.
After months looking for another Stainless Steel, Ruger New Model Vaquero in 38/357…..I finally found one at a very reasonable price (Well, reasonable for the Covid times $800!) Problem is, it had a 5.5″ barrel and my other NM Vaquero is 4.62″. A quick request on the SASS Forum and Boomstick had me into a
Recently I became intrigued with single driver loudspeakers. Where many, if not most HiFi loudspeakers have multiple drivers…woofer, midrange, tweeter, and sometimes multiples of each, there is a following for a simple design using a single, high quality, full range driver. There are real advantages to this Single Driver design: #1) Single sound source. All
A few years ago I decided that sleeping on the ground was no longer fun. Having spent some time in Australia a few years ago, I became aware of Roof Top Tents (RTT). Seemed every other car and truck had one on top! Once I returned home I did some research and found a “Used
Recently I was perusing the classified section on the diyAudio forum (https://www.diyaudio.com/) and a fellow was offering a small, four tube, amplifier kit for a very reasonable amount. I contacted him and he assured me that all the parts and instructions were there. Seems he had bought this kit years ago and simply never built
