    Moose Milk

    When I first heard of "moose milk" I was told to use one part water soluble cutting oil to nine parts water. Water soluble cutting oil has gotten pretty difficult to find, and Balistol is now substituted for it.

    New range box

    Looks good! Now you need to make a tray to fit inside it and put some triangle pieces in the corners to support the tray. Just a suggestion; the tray could have dividers in it so you have several compartments for small stuff. Need a photo of the finished box, with rope handles in place, etc...

    Picked up a T/C Hawken

    Nice! Did it come with the peep sight, or did you put that on yourself? ~WH~

    New raised beds

    I need to get more lumber and rebuild mine; the present walls are 12 years old and rotted out. I was going to replace them last year but then decided that they could last another summer, which they did, I will build the new ones further apart so I can run the lawn mower between them - using...

    I am Picking Your brains

    Lee will (or used to, anyway) sell their molds factory direct. Good Lord, the manufacturer is out of stock! What is the world coming to? I was going to pick up a .50 brass brush at Walmart the other day, and their...

    I had an Epiphany!

    What rifle are you using? Flintlocks are just like percussion guns, some have single triggers and some have double set triggers. And then of course, there are the single set triggers.... Put a chip of wood in the jaws in place of the flint and dry fire it. Do so every evening for ten or so...

    Antique Drill Press

    I believe the original post photos are of a hand crank only drill press, missing the crank. The wheel on the side would be a fly wheel so once it was up to speed, inertia would help keep it turning so you didn't have to put as much effort into cranking it. The caption also says hand crank...

    Made some universal lube

    SOS was either red or white, depending on whether it was "Chipped Beef on Toast" or "Creamed Beef on Toast". I don't remember it being pink.... I liked the red stuff and sometimes make a "sorta" recipe I found on line. ~WH~

    "Curing" a black powder barrel?

    I was recently thinking about this very subject. If I clean the bores of my ML rifles with boiling hot water, they flash rust. The same for others who I have communicated with. The bores have supposedly been "seasoned". If they are, there should be NO rust. My cast iron frying pans which I...

    Always Keep One Handy ....

    The museum site doesn't show it; they have another one which is a copy of a striker ordered for the Lewis & Clark expedition, but even that is out of stock. I need to get me a good steel. The one I have, I can't get any sparks from whatsoever.
