The news media's purpose seems to be keeping people worried and unhappy.
Nothing new there, scary news sell well.

History repeats, watch the past to see the future, much more accurate than crystal ball gazing or tea leaf swilling...

Happy Yuletide to all.

Re: Experience with selling a collection?

Knife Purveyors are available to help in situations similar (Estate sales etc) I suggest contacting Mitchell Harrison, (aka, Tunefink) on "knife talk forums" which is the Randall forum. Also Miles Welze, same place. I have not sold to either, but have purchased from them. Great to deal with. Also No...

Re: Am I screwed? (Get it?)

Unable to access photo. So, as it is in wood, I think a small diameter pin punch would knock it through, backwards or forwards. Place scale on a piece of soft wood to support it and prevent splitting, then tap through with small hammer. Having someone to hold scale would be advised (unless you have ...

Re: Am I screwed? (Get it?)

If no joy yourself, take it to a Jobbing Jeweller. They have experience removing broken bits when not enough lube is used. Phosphoric acid is "commonly" used as it attacks steel, but cannot effect Gold. Obviously, acid will not be used in this case... Merely included as it may be of use to others in...

Re: Chuck Yeager Passes at 97.

Years (decades ago) I read his autobiography. Fascinating. I was flying Hang-gliders at that stage. Read with interest how they could not understand why the jets they were test flying kept nose diving into the ground. He discovered the yoke needed to be pushed forward at Mach 1 to prevent plane nosi...

Re: This just .... - bow breakdown

Hi, if you contact Bear, they may be able to suggest different model limbs for replacement. Some of the Archery forums may have advice. You may have to adjust the nock guide, but that is not hard. Obviously Bow vice/rigger will be required, but most Archery shops have a Tech. in store if you don't h...

Re: Golden Kiwi (the fruit)

I love a good kiwi. Its packaged in smaller plastic containers here instead of out on the rack with the apples. Thank you for the reminder to look for them I see them tucked away not prominently displayed and hadn't thought about them in a while Yep, that is because of the enhanced ripening from ap...

Re: Golden Kiwi (the fruit)

Very funny.. Standy99 is correct. A gentle squeeze at either end will indicate ripeness. Yellow variety tend to ripen faster and are softer than green variety. Ripening can be accelerated by placing in paper bag with apple or banana as the acetylene gas induces ripeness. One of the reasons bananas a...

Re: Hatchets & Tomahawks?

Qoute by JD," I would love to have anything they made in the 1980s or earlier. I had also heard that BUCK made a hatchet at one time too. Not completely sure though because I've never seen one. Whoever made my Sears Craftsman unit sure did a good job. Because I've had it and used it a lot since the ...

Hi, had MK1 sold it...impractical.. sharpened (not really )double edge pry bar. :( Mk2 plain, carried it on leg when Soldier, great as a Pig sticker. Didn't get used for anything else. Mk2 serrated, definitely the more practical user. Serrations got used to actually cut stuff.. Spend your cash on so...

Re: Flesh Eating Bacteria in Australia? Where Else?

Yep, we have whitetail spiders here in NZ as well. Got bitten(2x) by spider in sea boot. One bite worse than other, probably first one. Tried every alternative medicine we could possibly think of. Each helped for 24 hrs, then return to ulcerative decomposition. Getting very close to ankle bone. Went...
