Re: Brake pads

...but if they were warped, I fail to see the logic of using the same rotors that failed you with even less material. Granted, the pads may have been too hot for that rotor but I still wouldnt use them. Because in 90% of cases once a set of rotors has warped (aka heat cycled) they won't warp again....

Re: Brake pads

Assuming your local autozone kept the lathe to turn them. I've only found a Carquest shop in the city that will still turn rotors, all the autozones, advance auto, etc got rid of their machines. Its even difficult to find rotors not made in China anymore. I bought a set without checking and got the...

Re: Brake pads

? I don't know where you've been getting your rotors turned but it can be done and it's rather simple if you know how. Even slotted/cross drilled vented rotors. To me it sounds like the shops you've been going to are a bit heavy with the cutting bit. Where we live roads salt eats rotors. The face g...

Re: Brake pads

Toyota brakes suck, my exwifes 4-Runner has warped fronts rotars twice now, no heavy driving and my Tacoma's rotors are doing the same thing. The Tacoma World forum has many threads on the stock rotors being bad. Better aftermarket ones solve this. I am going this route. I have heard good things ab...

Re: Brake pads

Rotors now are made by the cheapest supplier. On top of that there is not as much material in the rotors given 20 years ago. Rotating mass kills MPGs so engineers make them as light as possible. Ceramic pads are great they fade less, but guess what takes the heat....the rotor. If you rotors are at l...

Re: Saiga .223 and AR Mag Adapter

For that price, I can't see how he'd save money doing that in lieu of moving to a firearm built for AR mags. On the cheap end of the scale, you have the Keltec SU16 which shares the AK manual of arms, at least for the bolt, or to an AR completely. I know that's not what you wnated to hear, but if i...

Re: Moving from a urban locale to rural, experiences?

We moved from a suburb of Milwaukee to the Northwoods of Wisconsin about 10 years ago. We discussed it as a family and our kids were 10-11 at the time. We liked Milwaukee, but wanted countrylife. My wife grew up on a dairyfarm in Wisconsin and I in rural Florida, we thought it would be good for our ...

Re: Saiga .223 and AR Mag Adapter

Unless your local gunsmith is a friend doing the work for free, that price is about right for that type of job. Probably better off just getting the proper mags. Nothing is ever free...I would rather get the part and sub to a gunsmith I trust. My son would like to make the switch since I will be bu...

Re: Saiga .223 and AR Mag Adapter

How do you think the mag will be retained in the gun after conversion? An AK mag is retained and held steady by both the front and the back of the mag. The AR is held steady and straight by the long mag well and retained by a hole in the side. You would have to make the AK mag well as long as an Ar...

Saiga .223 and AR Mag Adapter

Hello all,
I am looking to convert a Saiga to accept AR mags. I am looking for the good and bad. It looks like using a mill is the only way to go and I have a gunsmith complete the work.

Re: The best polar rifle ever

Last deer season here I did take my rifle in and out. The house was 70+F degrees and outside was 5. The reasoning is wanted to if any problems presented themselves.... Nothing did. Rifle was a Mosin.
