spent the day in town............. a fate worse than death!
when i got home i knapped half a dozen flints. made a dozen char cloths. in other words goofed off.
except for town. spent the morning there cleaning a vrbo vacation rental. not sure its worth it.
well i have come to the conclusion that i need to be in a nursing home. i gauged the screw on my CVA and it struck me the reason the broken screw was slotted and kept in the axel was just so the guy that broke it would have it for future reference.
by the way its 48 pitch and .115 diameter. why...
and then slotted! that screw does absolutely nothing but fill a hole. soak it with a penetrating oil and see if you can remove it. someone on ebay will have a replacement . for 4 times what it should cost!
a 9mm Spanish made something or the other. 1970 I traded a pocket knife for it. luckily it came with a ball mold.
standing inside the garage with the doors closed I still couldn't hit the broadside of anything. but it made white smoke , belched a long flame of fire at night and started a life...
let fly Chris! no doubt about it, you will be ahead of me!
and if we don't shoot them short guns, everyone will be ahead of us!
like my late father in law, a champion basketballer said," you can't score if you don't shoot!
