    Thanks.
    I had a good marketing scheme. Even a good name. Big A Rifle Rest. It's big, and A shaped. Was, A shaped. Till I got to looking at it, and realized it was dumb to have it A shaped. Your arm had to lay on top of it. So I flipped it around. So it's now V shaped. (When viewed from behind)
    I had the logo drawn out in my head. A donkey was my mascot. Fit in with the "A" theme.
    Somehow calling it the Big V Rifle Rest...is going to lead to a lot of jokes. I guess I could roll with it, and have a cat as my mascot...


    You could call it "for those times I don't have Jerm's butt to use as a rifle rest" rest.

    There's a link to the paint. Shows something that's been painted with it.
    http://www.avb-sports.be/sprays/paint/21771/


    And they do make different colors.

    I've used crinkle paint quite a bit in the past on gunstocks and it doesn't "hide" anything. Any flaws or blemishes will transfer to the paint surface.

    I wouldn't sweat marketing yet since it will probably take you a while to finish the ones that forum members are waiting on. Will mine be done in time for the SE shoot?

    You guys are hard!

    At least no one snipped off the finger with a pruner so they could keep on working.

    That would my wife. She managed to snip about a quarter inch off the end of her finger once upon a time! Of all the calls I've gotten at work, that one was the most memorable...

    Pffft. I don't needs no lathe follower! I done gots one!

    Never mind the chunk of 1/2" square brass that's sandwiched between the lathe dog and drill rod. Didn't have a dog small enough. Outside the box, blah blah blah. :tooth:

    I don't think inside the box. I don't think outside the box, either. I lost the box a LONG time ago. Some people think that necessity is the Mother of Invention. I learned that Necessity is just a Mother, and you have to ignore her and do what you got to do to get it done!

    Mashed the end of my middle finger on my left hand but good this morning. I let my finger get between a ~#300 chunk of steel and the concrete wall. That was just about enough to make a man urinate down both legs. I mean it hurt so bad I didn't even break in the book of magic words and phrases.

    Pretty much instantly my finger swelled up to fill the end of my glove. Now the pad is a nice hue of purple and I have a bruise under the nail too. So I probably get to look forward to a nail coming off.

    Made a big mistake today, I offered to make supper because it was one of Clean's volunteer days.

    She liked it
    now I suppose I'll have to do something like that again. :yikes:

    This morning I used a 1/16" drill and went through the nail. That helped quite a bit. Thank you to those who reminded me of that.

    So he can drill the hole or tell you to live with it and charge you 150 bucks? Its a fingernail boo boo.

    This. All the doc is going to do is poke a hole in the nail and prescribe 800mg of ibuprofen. Hell I have a good sharp drill set, rubbing alcohol and ibuprofen. No sense is paying for what I can do and dealing with paperwork at work because this happened on the clock.

    Mashed my left thumb nail and that's what I did, used a small drill bit to make hole in nail. As soon as the bit went through it felt like the thumb was hot but no pain.

    I'll swear... I'm about "this close" to blocking anything in Russia from accessing my site. Weeding through my logs has become SUCH a pain because of all the Russian attempts to create "referrer log SPAM" - which is virtually ZERO in effectiveness in general, but makes reading logs a pain.

    I've already blocked face***k from linking to my site, if Russia continues to annoy me, they may be next. I guess I could write a script to post-process the logs, wonder which would be easier? Trouble is, once in a "blue moon", a link from Russia is legitimate.

    If I made s big pot a meat and spuds, and start running out of gravy before I get to the bottom, does that mean I didn't make enough gravy or that I've been eating too much gravy???:uhm:
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    Answer A. I am not sure what this idea of "too much gravy" even is.

    This afternoon I am sitting in daughter #2 gymnastics class waiting room. Nice air conditioning, a low hum of useless small talk and I am about to fall off the bench I am sitting on because I am falling asleep. Playing on the phone is not enough to hold my attention.

    I don't have a book with me and doing something productive like sharpening my knife would probably be frowned upon. I can't just go nap in the pickup because daughter #1 wants to sit inside and watch sissy. At least no one is trying to make small talk with me.

    "Today, we learn."

    It isn't the best idea in the world to attempt to bring three separate 12/3 Romexes into one of those 2x4 "handi boxes", and expect to install a receptacle in it too. A box extension saved the day, but I should have used a deeper box - or a 4 square - to start with!

    My wife picks me up to take me to lunch today. She says, I got a 20% off ammo coupon from Big 5 Sporting goods. Takes me for a burger at a place across the parking lot from Big 5, and buys me some Sig Sauer .308 to run through my new rifle.

    And just in case I'm not spoiled enough, she made pizza from scratch for dinner while we're watching the Rams & Niners.

    Agreed. But I've yet to convince someone to give me one based on only my handsome face.
    I've got 6 hours worth of driving tomorrow to ponder it. Worst case I have to adjust my milling vice each time I need to cut pieces for the base. Best case I can clamp the jig to the mill table instead of the vice.

    I'm assuming you don't have one of these kits. If you don't, then spend some coin of the realm and quit your beechin'! :tooth:

    get the Kindle app sign up for Kindle unlimited and read some books. This week I was stranded for about 20 hours in the Charlotte, NC airport (and the crappy hotel they put me in- which, I'm pretty sure I've seen on 'The First 48') and read 3 sci-fi novels.

    That looks like a Muscovy duck on the downed fence. I that those things. They're like a feathered cat around cars, and they like to leave ammonia rich poop deposits on the paint. That right there is a target for your .22 pepperbox pistol if I ever saw one. Coax it in close with bread and "Choot Lizbet, Choot!" :tooth:

    Well, our Govt elections are over. The liberals took a hit and got less votes than predicted. Unfortunately, what passes for 'conservatives' didnt get a clear majority so now under our system of MMP the negotiations will begin to see whether the conservatives can find a partner out of the minority parties to form a coalition Govt.

    MMP sucks!

    At least its done now. That's the good news. The bad news is that the electrical box that the ceiling fan was attached to is loosey-goosey. Lovely. I get to try to crawl into the attic tomorrow and reinforce the damn thing.

    Every couple of years I have to go through my rather extensive links page and check every single one to see if its still viable. Takes several hours, but it is done now. Had to delete some links that were "old friends" so to speak.
