Re: What have you bought in the last 48 hours?(firearms rela

@91Eunozs Did you pick those all up at Silencer Shop here in Austin? I've wanted to get a suppressor but I can't justify the $1000 price. For that I can get several guns or plenty of other gear. I'd LOVE to have one. But I need more disposable income before that's going to be even close to a reality.

I wish the kind of stamp collecting I did as a kid was the kind 91Eunozs is doing now.

What caliber cans do you now have?

Re: Press therapy - reloading room *chat*

@91Eunozs

I hear you on the shells. You have to have a shot maker for this to truly be worthwhile. Hence why I cast my own lead projectiles myself. I just decided it wasn't a priority to go down the shotgun route personally.

@teotwaki

Is that a $500 bag you've packed not counting the contents?

Wow. I wish my budget could power that kind of purchase. :)

Re: How Have You Prepared Today? (Bug-in Location Edition)

Cleaned up my shop which sorely needed it. Got a ton of usable space again instead of having a dozen projects all scattered throughout it. Straightened up the tool shed which I had been using since last fall as my spray-paint booth. I took down all the plastic tarps and sprayed with a pressure wand ...

Re: Press therapy - reloading room *chat*

Anyone local to Austin who reloads shotshells? I've got about 8 5-gallon buckets worth of shells from indoor & outdoor ranges. Most of these are actually pretty clean. I get them because they're in the same 55 gallon barrels I use to collect ammo trays as part of the recycling pilot program I'm runn...

Re: My powder coat bullet adventure

Finally got my boolit sizing die from Amazon. 224 is what I got to bring those powder coated little pills down to the size I need. The PC gets a little shinier but didn't show lead anywhere. Well, that's not EXACTLY true. I had one red one fall into the spot that de-primed primers sometimes fall. Ri...

Re: What Did You Do Today To Prepare?

Set up a frame to hold my 55 gallon plastic barrels tilted forward & downward so power-washing the insides is easy now and makes less of a mess. The power-washer is fully operational after loads of fun cleaning the carb. Got a couple parts ordered for it from the local parts store. Now I'm in good s...

Re: How Have You Prepared Today? (Bug-in Location Edition)

Ordered an ignition actuator arm for our truck. Gotta get it started with a key in the near future instead of with a screwdriver. I dropped off the door lock to the local locksmith to see if he can re-key it or not. Would also be nice to have door keys since I bought the truck without them.

Ordered a 224 bullet sizer die from Amazon this weekend. My powder coated 223 boolits have been cast & coated so now I just need to size & seat.

Re: Small engine repair

AND.... I got it working. Best I can tell little bits of varnish were the culprit. I Just continued to clean the carb really good, made sure the wire went through the jet, etc. The only thing I did different was to monkey with the screw on the top of the carb in the center. I am guessing that adjust...

Re: Small engine repair

@doitnstyle1 The bowl has two screws - one to attach it to the carb (goes into the center post above the main adjustment screw) and the other to drain the gas from the bowl. Neither has a hole in it. The main adjustment screw DOES have the jet hole that runs the length of the screw but it is wholly ...

Re: Small engine repair

Hey all Thanks for the suggestions. I have been chatting with Robin/Subaru as well trying to diagnose the problem. They suggested boiling in a hydro sonic cleaner as a last ditch effort to save the carb. I did that using just a little Dawn & super hot but not boiling water, similar to YouTube videos...

Re: Small engine repair

Air filter on this is a green sponge thing. It's very clean so I doubt that's it. I have to remove it in order to use the starter fluid, so I've looked at that a dozen times already. There is no fuel filter that I see. He had drained it of gas to get rid of the washer, which is funny considering he ...

Hey all Not quite sure where I should put this post, so Self-Sufficient Living it is. I have a Homelite 80709A pressure washer I picked up from CL.

Re: Installing new electrical

I thoroughly neglected to post an update here. The electrician came about two months ago. He ran conduit from the breaker panel across the top of the walls over to where the refrig was on one side of the garage. That dropped a dedicated outlet on that wall for the frig. Also added an outlet on the o...
