Re: Tool you may not know about

I wasn't sure if everyone knew about it so I tossed it up on the forums. With a little practice they can cut very clean holes/shapes.

Tool you may not know about

I have used a metal nibbler for several years now to make inside cuts on thin metals. You just need a 3/8" hole to stick it up into and start cutting. I see a lot of stove construction using thin aluminum here and some of you may not be aware of this tool. It's not usually found in hardware stores. ...

Re: Diesel powered hand warmer

Thanks! I get so much inspiration from a few different forums that I want to give some back and keep the cycle going. You don't need much machining equip to make a simplified version of it. In fact you can make one with just a drill press and hack saw. Buy some tubing that can hold four smaller tube...

Re: Woodchuck Chuckin Wood

That's from a Geico commercial. All of them are kind of funny. I like the one with R Lee Ermey "Gunny". He hosted the mini series "Lock and load" on the History Channel. "Do former Marine drill sergeants make terrible therapists"? APwfZYO1di4 "Is having a snow ball fight with pitching great Randy Jo...

Re: Snow shoeing Upper Skyline Trail Mt Rainer

That part on the vid was us going off the trail about 100' to a big grove of trees to find a semi sheltered lunch spot. It was a steep incline and took some serious grunting to get to. Most of the hike was just you regular ups and downs on fairly packed snow. My wife also wanted to see how much her ...

Re: Snow shoeing Upper Skyline Trail Mt Rainer

I'm pretty sure Santa is getting me a Bushnell Backtracker. A certain person in our house is not good at clearing the internet history on her computer. :?

Re: Snow shoeing Upper Skyline Trail Mt Rainer

That is the only part of the park that is open during the winter so it gets heavy use. And the trails are very deeply cut in. So I consider it much safer to go on winter excursions in an area that has a lot of people, rangers and well marked trails. They just found a dead hiker last night in the Nor...
