    Like that gun too, any history to it , or hunches?
    No one fires 2 or 3 shots at a critter and then buries the gun. out in the desert.
    The pistol was made in Germany and even had the flat hammer spring as in a Colt single action. The spring was well know for breaking, lots of folks kept a spare. It is one of the main reasons the "dry fire" is a No No. They use to make a dummy cartridge that was spring loaded, in place of a primer.

    You may have noticed in some of my pictures, there is a grocery bag. Way cheaper than paint.


    Copyrighted materials fees are DIRT CHEAP. I usually just charge a cup of coffee as a fee if I ever meet you, but with interest till that happens it could add up to almost a pot of coffee. The good thing is that I don't do starbucks, so a pot is still cheap...

    Prokop,
    Here are a couple of pictures of the ends of the tank.

    In the future it will be a Sheep's Foot. Tank is at least 3/16" or more thick. The thin end will be cut off. About 10". It is filled with water and that really runs the weight up.

    Have started on a new roller. A lot bigger around and somewhat shorter. Going to put a little sand & gravel in it to keep the rust scoured out. Then filled with water. 1 Picture has the measurements on it. Maybe one of the educated people will figure out how many gallons it will hold.

    I only ever paint for protection of the metal. Although I have noticed that my crappy welds look alot better after a coat of primer and then gloss black paint. I don't have near the portfolio of nicely done projects as you, crash, but I have a lot of sketches of things I want to do. Here's hoping I live long enough to get some of them done.
    From now on I will only buy cars that are a silver/grey color. Then I can make all body repairs with Duct Tape.

    There are times when I just sit around and dream up new "Projects". Got to be comfortable.

    Flat paint hides a lot more sin's than Gloss. Ask an expert at making "Fine Looking" projects.

    Not everything I build is ugly. But quick & dirty is so much more fun.

    Will show a few things that actually look good and are well finished. The pens show were made with solid 14 KT. gold, 1 was diamond set. Things like these take a lot of time and thinking. No fun in that.

    The oak floor was out of a guys "fire wood" pile. It had sat around on a dirt floor barn for a lot of years. You might say it was somewhat "Dis stressed".

    More nice stuff later if you like.
