Re: Helicopter Fun

I know we have some pilots in here. Check out this helicopter flying. Warning! Cheesy 70's porn soundtrack. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=180&v=oeDmBCuDxLQ I disagree. This sounds more like 70's cop show music. Which could also be used as porn music in the 70s, but tomato, tomahto.

Re: Saint Louis Paper Shows Bias

There's a reason why it's called the Post-Disgrace in some circles. It's one of the papers I monitor regularly for work for signs of shenanigans in Illinois' downticket races.

Also, the guy they have covering soccer is a schmuck.

I blame my dad, who finds every last speck of sawdust when we're cleaning up after a project. It's also in my basement. It used to seep groundwater during moderate rains until I got the sump system in, so I mop the floor regularly to keep mold and mildew down. Since that photo was taken I've already...

Re: Adding a reloading press to a new workbench

And for those truly interested, the vise is just a generic 4" I scrounged out of my late grandfather's workshop when my grandmother moved into her new apartment. It should do for any AR modifications I want to make to my rifles.

Press and vise are now mounted. The press is held in the front by two lag screws driven into through the plywood and into the side 2x4 and a regular bolt in back. Pictures to come.
