  • Homemade Firepit from Helium Tank (No welding!)

    Thanks. Go for it! You do far more artistic work than I do. I was thinking of trying to make a forming hammer and buck to pound them in identical on 55gal barrels to make incinerators and pits to sell!

    helium is NOT in short supply!

    I plan on doing this to a 55gal drum, and a 35gal drum....

    see my response above... no photos as the can is at hunting camp a few hours away, and not accessable now due snow

    I've used a hammer and hatchet

    I have some of these, but no projects in mind. This is nice. I was also thinking a portable rocket griller! One thought. Instead of holes I have gone to cutting louvers in the sides. Far more airflow for better fires! My hunting camp pit needs one good load of wood to get a bed of coals then ANYTHING can burn!I marked lines vertical evenly spaced, even number. Then cut slots between the lines skipping a space so I had a vertical row of slots. With heavy pliers and hammer chisel i ben them so the louvers forced the burning wood and coals to fall in to middle of the pot. I NEVER have burning sticks poking out and falling on the ground! Mine is opened enough that when you look down through the louvers at an angle all you see is a 6x4 inch square hole of air space. But you still have ...see more »I have some of these, but no projects in mind. This is nice. I was also thinking a portable rocket griller! One thought.

Try it once and you will never go back to holes again!

    Make your own  Teepee

    my understanding from talking with folks who have lived in teepees, if you use a liner, you peg it to the ground, and run it up the inside, then when you stretch out the outside cover, you peg it so there are a couple inches above the ground to allow air flow.this helps pull the smoke out the top, and keep everything below the top of the liner pretty smoke free.Also, setting up teepee was woman's work. Men would never help, as the women take GREAT pride in their home

  • How to Disassemble a Mossberg 500 Series Shotgun

    with the pin out, the trigger group is removed by tilting it up from the rear/butt end.there are tabs that hold the front/barrel end in the receiver

    I found there is no reason to, unless you need to clean in it.... I have not found an easy way to take one apart.perhaps they have made them disassemblable over the last 30 years.

    absolutelyI have had two of these, and did exactly that.I used a fine stone to knock off all the edges, and an extra fine to polish all the sides that make contact with other metal.upon reassembly, I had oiled it all up, and when totally assembled, I worked the slide a few thousand times watching a movie.after that, I have NEVER had a jam or cartridge hang up. (Wish I could say the same thing about the Remington Wingmasters or 870's)

    a shotgun is not a weapon, it is a tool with a specific purpose.an aluminum bat is more a weapon than a 12ga shotgun
