    Foredom flex shaft problem

    Carvers, could use some help with an issue I'm having with my old Foredom. I was running a 1/4" shank cutter on a white cedar head and I hit my glove. The cutter slowed but kept moving but now I get maybe half the power when I press down on the cutter. Took off the sleeve and the flex shaft...

    Anybody hunting crows?

    Tis the season. I started doing this seriously about 12 years ago and stuck with it for one very good reason: it's almost identical to goose hunting. I made a portable blind from dog fence and old Fastgrass, bought some crow decoys, made a owl holding a crow, and bought a E-caller. We set up on...

    Back in town. Back on the Refuge

    It has been quite awhile since I've participated here but I'm glad to be back. Thanks Baydog for setting me up so quickly. The past few years have been a real trial for my family but everything seems to be settling down and I'm looking forward to re-connecting with old friends here on the Refuge...

    Machining on a crank shaft/idler pully

    Not a real interesting topic but I'm hoping to get come machinist input. Splines on the crank shaft and the idler have both worn out. My thought was to drill and pin the two together. Questions: is it even possible to drill the hardened steel of the idler collar and the crank shaft itself...

    Refuge Engineers?

    I found a huge cauldron near a marsh where I was checking on my Wood duck nesting boxes. Tried to move it today because I collect scrap but it looks like a lost cause - too heavy! My question is how much does this mother weigh? Its 46" dia. and the wall thickness is 3/4". Material has to be cast...

    Scrubbing a bore

    Picked up an older shotgun and the bore looked dusty - dirty so I thought the owner just hadn't cleaned it last time he hunted. I tried scrubbing, soaking, more scrubbing, about 50 patches thru it, still looks terrible. I tried Hoppes 9, Clean-Bore copper solvent, G96, and another bore-cleaner...

    2 Bands this season

    Hi Guys, I managed two bands this first season after a long lull of 4 years. First one was very local: banded within 20 miles of my house and taken within 10 miles. Hen mallard was banded by the Canandaigua Lake Waterfowlers Club just this past summer. It was my first duck of this season. Second...

    F-150 Carrier Bearing-Mechanic question

    Getting a steady whine under the truck, increases with speed. I was told it could be the Carrier Bearing so I started to research it. Parts stores (Napa. Advantage, etc) say no such thing exists on my truck - huh? I looked at it, its there on the middle of the drive shaft. Dealer tells me today...

    Irondequoits new zoning law

    This is very concerning to me and should be to all upstate hunters. Irondequoit has successfully passed a law forbidding the encroachment of moored boats within 300' of shore from private property. How they can do this is beyond me in that it violates the State provision for public waters usage...

    Ticks everywhere

We're all cleaned up now but the dog had not been on a tick...

    Motorcycle tires

    Riders, I need two new tires for my Sportster. The Dunlops on there did not last as long as the origional Dunlops in terms of mileage so I'm looking for another brand. Any suggestions on what is working for you and is there an on-line mail order place that is reasonable on prices and shipping...

    Moldy stained basement walls

    Guys, how do I get rid of the mold and stained corners in my basement? I have some muriatic acid but as I mixed it (with water - about 2 cups to a gallon) its not touching the stains. Yep I've got a fan going and the windows open. Do I need to go higher on the ratio of muriatic acid or is there...

    Morning Guys, Hunted Sodus the past three days and watched the Coast Guard, Sheriff and other rescue boats cruise the bay looking for the body of the missing fisherman. This morning about 8:15 the Sheriffs boat pulls up and tells me I have to leave the area so they can deploy a dive team off the...
