Worked on my Kibler Colonial. Fitted the nose cap, fitted the patch box cover. Now have to cut the cover to length. Disassembled the whole thing and started cleaning up the brass. Did some draw filing on the barrel.
Suggestion on the sizer have not done this but been thinking a lot about it, (harbor freight) arbor press, a block of steel with hole bored in in the size you want to size the minie (might be a good ideal to have a machinist make this part) A ram to fit in the hole in the block, a second block with a bigger hole in it to go under the first block to catch the bullet once it is pushed through the sized hole in the first block. Suggestions or any Ideals as if this could work.
Got up early, cooked eggs, buttered wheat bread, had a banana.
Did some linen wash.
Watched "Emergency" and one episode of "Highway to Heaven." Great shows!
Called a ski resort in WV and checked on a hotel in Vermont. Not looking good for skiing right now. Might have to take the nephew ATV riding and shooting instead.
Went to the post office. Saw two ladies that are completely nutzoid over the virus. It's as if their minds are stuck in March of 2020. SMH.
Went to the gym. HAD THE BEST WORKOUT SINCE I DID P90X LAST SUMMER. Felt soooooo good to run again.
Saw old friends at the gym....felt even better to fellowship with them.
Went to a restaurant to a friend's birthday party.
Home. Dozed off on couch. Showered....might be up late.
Cleaned out and organized the shooting box and supplies. Haven’t gotten to work on that Investarms Hawken yet because we’re pushing so much OT recovering from the storms here. Also put a Pietta .36 Navy on layaway.
put baseboards in the last part of the rec room, put the trim molding up in the walk in closet, got door jambs around the bathroom pocket door. Only took two years....
fitted the trigger on my .22 cal flintlock project and burned a few priming pans full during testing. no vent drilled yet
then this evening i made a jig to drill angled holes for my steel railing spindles to go up the stairs from the rec room.
got my posting message today. Officially leaving Newfoundland and heading to Wainwright, Alberta. Should be my final military move.
