Evening y'all.

Heatwave here. Currently 56.  Roll Eyes
Supposed to get down to 29 tonight, which is the high for tomorrow.

Picked up some cigarette papers at the C-store to make .36 paper cartridges.

What year Jeep?  Mine is a 2009.  Went through a period where it didn't want to start.  Discovered that if I push the gear selector (automatic) forward it would start.  Apparently, it was (and sometimes still is) a fault in the switch indicating that it lever isn't in park.



02! I once thought that might be the issue- i am not certin...it will not get a new Trans from me.

Evening all.

New shotgun report.  The danged thing kicks like a mule that sat on a cactus.  Somewhere around 6.5 pounds, and we were shooting magnum buckshot. Roll Eyes  I think it kicks harder from the other end, though.

I finished a pretty long video today.  Well, long for me anyway.  Came out at almost 9 minutes.  Now I just have to upload it.

Same weather pattern here, Slim. Currently 61, rain moved in just after dark, now supposed to drop to 33 and then maybe 40 tomorrow.

TK: Magnum buckshot? for a 6 1/2 lb shotgun, maybe 2 3/4" field loads for me.....

Never had those problems when you put the key in a hole in the dash and hit the starter thing with you right toe. Grin



I got a couple like that out back. ONE OF THESE DAYS, they'll live again! '50 GMC and '53 Chevy 1-ton. Maybe when I'm retired and travel time is less of a problem, use one to drive to the Grand Muster. Grin

Last winter one cold night got off late, had trouble starting The Field Marshall.  Had turned the switch on with the key, was in neutral, clutch out, left foot on the brake, right one with heel on the gas, toe trying to find the switch, right had trying to find the choke.   Roll Eyes


I'd love to have one of those... almost guaranteed you would never have to worry about anybody being able to steal it, even if you left the key in the ignition. Roll Eyes

That's any stick today today  and I would not other than a play toy.  Carbs, points and all that are a PIA, despite what some try to tell use.  Yeah, replace them every 6000 miles and wear the rings out by 100,000 dumping raw gas over them on cold days.

Most of those were also 6 volt, more fun on a cold day.

One of the camp projects going on in my workshop.  Primed, think it's going to be a darker red when done. 

Rocker when done I think will be a yellow of some sort.

Was discussing in another group a while back, we figure 6-12 hours work/prep for every hour we demonstrate.   The hobby is almost a second full time job.  May get the wood cutting demo ready by spring, need someone to run it.  Got the double bit now, needs handle.  Got to get handle for maul, plus a folding/take apart sawbuck made.  Got 3 more crosscuts,  these one man, keeping the best 3 1/2 footer, other is trade for the ax.  Got a 2 1/2 footer as well as the 4 1/2 two man and bucksaw.   Got the wedges also and the single bit.

Now that i can see pitcher. You might want to start a go fund me page to buy the glue your gonna need. Smiley)
25 foot of paracord and a short dowel rod or a screwdriver would be handy for clamping it tight while glue dries.
 
I have a swivel desk chair similar to the white one - bought at a auction for a few bucks, in Stuarts Draft Virginia. I think the story was it once belonged to Thomas Jefferson who lived nearby.  Not related to the former President, just some guy who shared the same name.  I replaced the seat with a piece of skirting leather. Cleaned it up. I still prefer it over a contempory desk chair.

Afternoon all.

Got the new hammer spring for the Beretta in the mail last night.  About 5 minutes of work, and now the DA trigger has been reduced from 13lbs to about 9.  Going to grab a couple boxes of ammo and test it out in a while.

In the mean time, I've walked the dog, have some bread dough rising, and am about to vacuum the living room carpet.

I'm in  need of espresso, coffee ain't going to cut it. Been off the past couple days, not quite under the weather, but far from chipper. Was dog tired last night, and turned in at 7. Woke up feeling kinda funky at 9, and wide awake. So, it was out to the shed to do some leather work. Got a rifle sling tooled up, finished it around midnight when the genny ran out of gas.

Slept in this morning, till the wife called. "I'm coming down the road, get your gun." It seems somebody whacked a deer around the corner, and left it flailing in the road. So off we go to dispatch the poor critter, and I butchered it out the best I could. Somewhere between a button and a spike, he would have been a good one in time. Now my back is really screaming at me. Just threw on The Hateful Eight, going to take some drugs, and hopefully pass out till morning time.

It's in pieces.  Wood is solid, but rough, block plane time.

Couple years ago I was wishing I had a small block plane, was under the bench to get the big jack plane and there was a block plane with masking tape on it said $5.  To this day I don't remember buying it.

Coffee is up for all ya’ll.....

Currently 39f with 74% humidity.

Rehab again this morning.

The word on Jeep is Water pump and also reservoir leaks < the poly container you fill .. had new radiator back early summer. Still needs tires and and exhaust is going. Maybe time to look for something different to drive.
