  1. I'm bbbaaaccckkk!!!

    Hey Lew! Good to be back. And yes it's heartbreaking. But the spirits are high in the keys. Just 50 yards down that street is the NOAA official Irma landfall location. That's actually the 3rd story. The 2nd disappeared and their rather large boat was lifted above electrical poles and dropped in a back yard 1/2 block away. I felt after that I needed to volunteer more so I went and was accepted as a divemaster at the FL Aquarium doing guest interaction through a comms mask and also taking guests smoking and diving in the shark tank. Found out they go to keys alot for reef conservation so I'm sure it won't be long before i go back and start cleaning the junk off the reef. And no worries, it is what is. I'll find a loophole in this battle with my body. I will always place the mission first. I will never accept defeat. I will never quit. I will never leave a fallen comrade. Even if that comrade is myself. And yea was solo excited about the free wood. Still trying to figure out what to use the A.M. for....
  2. Hello ladies and gentlemen, Sorry I haven't been active. My injuries are getting worse and worse by the say. I havent been able to get in the shop due to this. I got to go to the keys with WWP. We did Irma clean up. So sad to see everyones lives on the curb. I have just now after a month starting to be able to get around again. I havent done any work because my seizures are getting worse and more frequent. I prefer to keep my fingers for the time being! HAHAHA. Hoping to make some man glitter again sometime soon. I scored about 40 board fett of African mahogany on a curb as well as a crap ton of 12×10×1 pine planks on curb as well. I' am also proud to say I'm a plank owner and SGT. At Arms for our newly formed non-profit. It's ALOT of work, but so worth it! Happy Veterans Day!!!
  3. I think i figures this one out. Use to place and hold bend in a steamed slat of wood
  4. Rifle stocks

    Ok ladies and gents. Just have to see if i canoe her right and get mesurments for turn knob correct as I just tossed together to see if she would work. I cut the head off an old broken c-clamp and cut down the threaded bar stock an took an old broken squeeze clamp cut to length and drilled for a friction fit. I then instead head into wood disk to create the windage mech for cheek wield..... I need to get my butt into engineering school

  7. Rifle stocks

    Is it just me or does anyone else realize they need more tools when doing a new project? Or starting a new project as an excuse to buy some more? Hahahaha
  8. Rifle stocks

    No way!!!! Im gonna start saving for a OR kit. They're only like 285 and come w a ready to finish stock. So ill use that as a guide then finish it and turn around and sell that kit stock! Gonna be a while though, had to contact my congressman today to get some kind of answer from social security. But cant wait to make it and go shoot some black powder!!!
  9. Rifle stocks

    Lew, thank you sooo much! Just came in today. Holy crapola shes heavy. Must have been a pretty pent to ship! Again ty much! Already started acting up so i had to giver her the ol knife hand hahahaha
  10. Rifle stocks

    Well i was wrong mri is next thurs so well see what happens then. Had to bond some on to the stock as i didn't take into account grip angle. So did that shaped and cut cheek wield out. Lol more shaping then on to to internal hollow out.
  11. Rifle stocks

    Ty all. Tomorrows the big day but i dont know if I'll get results tomorrow though. On the plus side now that I have my guns back I was able to get measurements. I've done rough outline still have to shape and make adjustable cheek wield. It's comfy! Maybe it's because I'm so used to shooting an m16

    We got some good and depressing news too. l went to the main VA (Bay Pines) yesterday. Praise the good Lord thier one of the best and top one in fl. Saw TBI doc and she worried things have gotton worse. I have to go have an eeg mri for brain TBI optimologist TBI audiology blood work and nurology for increased seizure activity. I have to have TBI asap due to the symptoms im experiencing and stated immediately following the last time I knocked myself out. She believes theres a good chance im leaking spinal fluid in to sinuses. That also a risk for a hernia of my micro processed. Ughhhh.....

    That may be dumb enough to work.... I may actually convince her to like a muzzle loarder. And by as much as i could zoom in on pic it appears it may be curly ash. I think i can see what looks like alternating soft/hard grain. Hope so cause that is a wood with a beautiful finish
  14. Rifle stocks
