    Maggie’s The Welding and Metalworking Thread

    That's one of those videos that makes us kick ourselves in the nuts for doing shit "wrong" for so long and never having any idea what we were missing. I can already see how my next sheet metal job is going to improve.

    Bug-O-salt kill ratio

    They take a BBQ or crawfish boil from a pain in the ass with all the damn flies to a separate party with people fighting over the salt guns shooting the pests. Mine have been worth every penny. As I mentioned above, our big problem down here is the humidity gumming up the salt in the hopper.

    Bug-O-salt kill ratio

    I've had phenomenal success with mine this year. My biggest headache is with the crushing humidity down here the salt cakes up in the hopper.

    ⏩ The OFFICIAL - One and Only - Presidential Debate 2020 Thread ⏪

    Thanks for the shoutout brother. I've been on a shutdown at the steel mill since June. I got laid off this week, so I'm back online hunting the next job and popped into the Hide for a few mins. You badasses carry on carrying on.

    i think boggie brown has taken a direct hit from the damn storm

    I was referring to these studies on the lower 48. I wouldn't want to compete with mountaintops https://science.howstuffworks.com/science-vs-myth/everyday-myths/seattle-rainiest-city.htm https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile,_Alabama#Climate The inaccuracy of rainfall collection data also...

    i think boggie brown has taken a direct hit from the damn storm

    I appreciate it, but I'm "swamp people" and lose my mind in places without proper rain. I took massive thunderstorms for granted until I moved away. I enjoy living in the rainfall capitol of the country (by volume not rainy days)

    i think boggie brown has taken a direct hit from the damn storm

    The missus made it home (driving) from Boston yesterday. The complete and abject failure of the "News" and the online navigation systems to accurately convey that the Panhandle is essentially closed added 8-10hrs to her drive. I was literally listening to traffic reports and news reports...

    i think boggie brown has taken a direct hit from the damn storm

    Hiya Gents, Thanks for thinking of me. Other than the aforementioned tree and a broken water main (just repaired) I came out very very lucky. The damn thing sat out there so long that it jogged east and spared us here in SW Alabama with the exception of Dauphin Island which is basically in...

    Hilarious Hot-dog stand holdup hits Helmeted Harpoon w. hollowpoint

    Pretty sure that's a couple of blocks from my old apartment up there. My very last weekend living up there the Latin Kings got into a big shootout in front of my place while I was out fishing. I came home to cops everywhere, trying to figure out if any bullets had made it inside the...

    Milwaukee vs DeWalt?

    Thanks for guidance, gents. I've got a mix of the Fuel and non Fuel tools and a pile of the high output batteries. With the drills and drivers I don't know how much difference I've bothered to notice. Your description of the useless turd certainly sums up the non Fuel grinder, even w a 12.0...

    Milwaukee vs DeWalt?

    What's your "secret" on the grinder? Because my Milwaukee grinder has such shitty battery life that it's only really useful with a wire wheel for short cleanups between weld passes. There's no way I can use it as a substitute for a real grinder with discs, cutoff wheels, tiger paws, etc. Does...

    These Bastards are eating Rebecca's Mona lavender

    Anyone got a magic solution for flea Beatles on egg plants that's food/bee safe?

    These Bastards are eating Rebecca's Mona lavender

    I saw a version of that operation when I was living next to the tracks up north. I watched, fascinated, for hours trying to figure out exactly wth was going on and how they were doing it. Amazing. Thanks for the recommendation on the BT. I built a raised planter for my family in SC and so...

    These Bastards are eating Rebecca's Mona lavender

    Ya know, I've sprayed down my clothes and sleeping bags, etc with Permethrin, but never thought to use it on plants.

    These Bastards are eating Rebecca's Mona lavender

    I always considered those to be caterpillars, but no idea if they actually are, or what kind. I'd start with Sevin Dust powder, or I think they make a spray now. Or a mixture of dish soap and water or cayenne and water sprayed on the plant, those are the three fixes I've been given as I've...

    Comrade Walz redirects Memorial Day

    With all the corn fields I would've figured that you could have a 1000yd range pretty much anywhere you pointed your rifle. The missus graduated from HS in New Richmond and we were there last year for her reunion. I thought it was beautiful, but she says that the area you're in is way prettier.

    Comrade Walz redirects Memorial Day

    If you moved across the river from the Twin Cities, then downtown New Richmond is a fantastic place to find that barstool.

    Milwaukee vs DeWalt?

    Yesterday I saw at Lowes that DeWalt has a conversion kit that allows you to use the new 20v batteries on the old 18v tools. I'm thinking I may give it a try. I've got shelves and shelves of old DeWalt tools that I just refused to keep dropping money on the old, overpriced 18v batteries...

    Milwaukee vs DeWalt?

    I use mine professionally and buy them myself, and my experience is inline with @gunjunkie45 . Pretty much every contractor I work around uses DeWalt, but I spent my hard-earned $ thousands on Milwaukee, having had great luck with their (older) corded tools. Part of this was for my own sanity...

    16-18 inch shorty rifles

    Thats an old Rem factory 1:12 barrel. Going from (distant) memory my MV trued out at around 2450fps with Black Hills 175gr. I didn't bother to run it over the Magnetospeed after I eventually got one. Aside from a rare Benchrest match for fun, I don't generally shoot for groups, but it's...
