Re: ACU UCP doesn't have to suck!

Love the look of the backpack, what color dye did you use? I presume you can monitor the dye as it's working and stop when you're satisfied?

Re: Ambidextrous (or left handed) inexpensive semi auto?

AR's can be shot left handed quite comfortably (unless you get a 'slick-side' upper without the shell deflector), and you can also find left-handed ars that eject out the left side, Stag Arms comes to mind but I'm sure there are others.

Re: design question

Well, if you have access to a laser cit with those capabilities, why not cut the entire head blank, grind, temper and sharpen?

Re: design question

Provided you have a good welder, good clean materials, and proper equipment, maybe. The area around the weld or the weld itself will always be the weak point. You may destroy the temper of the axe head, making it too soft to hold an edge. Worse, re-tempering the finished piece will expose any weakne...

Re: Upgraded to a newer XJ.

How do you like the Duplicolor? I'm in the market for DIY bedliner, and I love the way that laid out, at least in the pictures. Does it stay slightly rubbery, or is it super hard? How warm was everything when you sprayed? (Sunlit or not, air temp, ect.)

As far as the house itself - find and hire a good inspector - and get a report in writing - you may be able to get a better price owing to needed repairs. This, although it shouldn't be a 'may'.
