Re: Looking for help on mobile rig

Spring mounts on the curb side should really be avoided. My wife has a scar across her face from getting hit with a spring mounted CB antenna on a pickup truck that made a sharp turn. The antenna swung out and hit her as she was standing on the sidewalk waiting to cross the street. That was 40 year...

Re: Looking for help on mobile rig

First, I'd suggest moving the CB antenna to the driver's side (less likely to contact things on the side of the road, like low branches). Second, there really are no "ideal" spots on a Wrangler for ham antennas but there are some really nice mounts made that improve the possible mounting locations....

Looking for Info on a Specific Bow

I found this photo of a bow last year and wound up tracking it down, but have since lost the info. Does anyone know what bow she is shooting? https://photos.smugmug.com/photos/i-rXJCQQ4/0/e51da1f5/L/i-rXJCQQ4-L.jpg Technically it would be a slingshot, but it is over 35lb draw weight and legal to hun...

Re: Industrial Use First Repsonder and Emergency Kit

If the industrial setting you're going to be in has a HF alkylation unit, Calcium Gluconate Gel and eyedrops along with milk of magnesia and eucalyptus oil would be a good precaution.

Re: Industiral Use First Repsonder and Emergency Kit

I'm not aware of what sort of OSHA kit would be suitable for a high risk environment.

Re: Press therapy - reloading room *chat*

Haven't been in this thread in a long while, and am back to apartment living. Any recommendations for a reloading bench that won't take up a ton of real estate and won't look so horrible that my wife will want to kill me?

I desperately need to start loading for my Ackley's again.

Shiloh, shoot me a PM. I live in Casper and could help you with the logistics of getting all your stuff and yourself to Laramie if you decide to not do the bicycle thing.

Good dealer to purchase X300 Ultra from?

After some quick googling it seems there is a very large price differential between Surefire dealers on the X300U's. I'm in need of a few of them and was wondering if any folks here on ZS could recommend a good dealer with a decent price?

That springer would be an Air Arms TX200 MKIII. It is a sweet gun, ran 250 or so pellets through it the first night I had it. Going to take it out into the hills and try it at 50yds tomorrow if the winds stay under 10mph or so.

Re: Probably a good time to fill up your gas tank...

The spice must flow!! In my not so humble opinion, production levels will most likely not drop. It takes more manpower to shut down or start up a unit than to keep it operating. All the refineries I've worked on in the last 10 years have been planning for this a long, long time. All of the former op...

Well, since the knowledge is written down, re-inventing the wheel isn't necessary. They had oil refineries (small ones) in the late 1800s. That is like saying that since I read a Haynes manual I can hand build a modern car because there were horseless carriages in the late 1800's. Modern refineries...
