Re: Your loved one needs ICU care, and there's none available...

I mean, who could figure out how to rig the O2 tank from a welding setup to meter oxygen via nasal cannula? I'd like to figure that one out if I could. Or just have some 02 on hand in the home. They do make a flow regulator that can be attached to an O2 tank. I have both medical and welding regulat...

Geez, you guys are almost making me want to say screw it and pay the SOT for class 3 :wink:

I am still awaiting my ffl application (only requested it 2 months ago). Got the corp setup getting all of the fun in-sewer-ants and some equipment setup.

No, where she's talking about is on the Southwest side. I'm pretty sure, anyway. It's quite a bit less populated than Redington, or at least it was when I was there. Living on the southwest side I have no knowledge of this gem. And as far as shooting up old shit I hope you all are taking all the bi...

Re: Blade Smithing

I'll bite but mind you I spent more time under horses then making blades. As far as a forge goes you really just need a good firebox that will not burn through , i.e. don't use 24g sheet aluminum. I have seen them made from files, scrap plate steel, brake drums, stone, and refractory concrete. The b...

How about getting a pair of welding gloves ? I thought those were much bulkier to wear and less compact when folded? like these .

Disposing of them safely so you're not creating a health hazard (such as allowing rotting bodies to infect water supplies) would be challenging to say the least. Especially for those handling the disposal. That would be like a full time j...

Ziploc Vacuum bags -- bad juju

I have been trying out the Ziploc vacuum bags. I have been using them to contain different items in my BOB and FAK and have found them severely lacking. They loose their vacuum after only a few days to a week or so. I was hoping that the nice manually operated pump and the reclosable nature of the b...
