    I.D. help for soldiers family

    I did a quick search of this name (as spelled on the sheath) and also found nothing meaningful. The text on the sheath would lead me to believe that this sheath (if it was made for this knife) was prepared by someone other than Griffings' buddies or someone in the USMC. The way it's worded...

    Gun Powder Therapy :)

    That .17 looks familiar - a Savage? Nothing quite like throw'in darts! Only a couple more months until the gophers come up.

    Tru Oil tip

    I just sucked some Tru Oil into a syringe to see if that blocks the air and stops the hardening process. Toothpick in the hole. Notice the entrained air bubbles - I think that's the culprit causing early hardening. I'll let this settle over night and see if all the air rises to the top so it...

    Tru Oil tip

    I think you are on to something, but is turpentine the right solvent or would mineral spirits be better?

    It is time for a new Respirator. ..UPDATED (Jan. 15th&16th) with some photos.

    Looks like 3M filters may not fit. The instructions say "Use only genuine Resp-o-Rator replacement filters". Understandable - if I were Mr. Duxbury, I'd want to keep the filter proprietary, it's a source of continued revenue.

    Running down cause of vibration on belt sander

    OK, try this: with your green belt off, grab the top of the motor and tug back and forth parallel to the belt. That will tell you whether you've got a loose connection for your motor mount.

    Running down cause of vibration on belt sander

    That is a clever use of a X/Y vice! Here are some thoughts: - All rotating things have vibrational harmonics to varying degrees - that is, there will be a speed at which any rotating shaft will find a point where it will vibrate in relationship to its speed and mass. In fact there is often...

    The Edge of Darkness.

    Does the use of a diffuser tube / baffle minimize the differential heat issue? The photo shows my propane fired forge, but I wonder if using a baffle like this in an electric oven would offer more uniform heating? Thoughts?

    It's hard to tell whether 3M will fit based on the photo. It kinda looks right, but it's a matter of size. Does the literature that comes with the filter say it's compatible with 3M?
