Re: Ultralight Stove

They are pressed togeather.
I usualy use a lubricant and go very slowly because it takes a pretty good ammount of force to press them togeather. Rollong the edge of one piece in and flaring the other piece out helps with the initial mateing of the two pieces.

Re: Duckys B.O.B

Great looking start at a BOB, other then what people have already commented on I would reassess if you have enough food/calories. If you want 5 days worth and you figure you may be physically active in those 5 days you could easily burn 3500 cal+ a day (e.g.-walking all day with a pack). I reassess...

Re: Duckys B.O.B

I would be very leery of the pack, it may look good quality, but they rarely are. Watch for the stitching along the tops of the straps as that is where similar packs tend to fail. The stuff sacks are craptacular too - I tested mine on a kayaking trip and the water soaked right through one, and some...

It is driven by electric hub motors and is powerd by an diesel electric generator. Check out soem of the videos of how this thign glides over som...

Re: Intro / Primer to Hammocking

Ok, just went out in the backyard to test my hammock. The one I switched out the god awful nylon rope with 550 cord (before seeing this thread) No pictures because as I was getting it adjusted I leaned on it and the cord broke right in the middle of the line, there goes that idea. So now that I hav...

Re: Intro / Primer to Hammocking

As soon as I transfer some moola Im going to order a Grand trunks Nano 7. I know this hammock is a bit smaller than others(9'x4') and Im wondering if this smaller size will make it more difficuly to lay diagonaly. My main concern is my knees being hyperextended when I sleep and my feet being above m...

Re: Ultralight Stove

Thanks Erie. Where did you take your class? I would love to get in on something like that. I have mannaged to find some extreamly fire retardant resin coatings but im not sure I could use them to cure the carbon fiber and still get the structural rigidity. I have been working with fiberglass for a l...

Re: Ultralight Stove

It would bacily be a cylinder with a gap on one side. Prety much exactly like the one I have posted pictures of on here but in Carbon fiber....

Finaly got the the extra pics of the Knife up It is a really good knife and I have had it for about 10 years now, and aside from a little discoloring and nicks in the pain it has held up wonderfully. It can take a little while to get a good edge on it but once you do it will hold the edge for a very...

A Beretta PX4 takes magazines not clips. Calling a magazine a clip in some places is like farting during a prayer, it brings unwanted attention. :oops: Very nice selection of the PX4, though.
