Re: Leaving mags loaded?

1969, I came upon an area (Rotenfels Mts by Bad Kreuznach Germany) A flac battery was destroyed and blew off the mountain and pieces were scattered all up the jagged crevices. I found a full 20mm magizine and the spring tension was good when I removed the shells, after all those years outside.

Center the tailstock to the chuck

My HF 7-14 lathe is a little bit off center to the tailstock.
What is the proper procedure to shim it or fix it?

What I would very much like to see happen

I am soooo tired of everyone in the world hating us and uses us to enrich themselves and use us as a Police force while they sit back an watch our sons die. I would like to see the US pull 80% of our military out of every country. Leave a small contingency force only. Move all of these troops along ...

Re: Doomsday Bunkers ARRG!

When I saw this episode, I thought, I could just build my camp right there next to their bunker door. heck, they will keep me supplied with groceries and weapons for a very long time. But what amazes me most of all is that these people seem to enjoy telling everyone where their bunker is, and what t...

Re: Doomsday preppers

Re: Vent holes in the blast baffle area

Thanks for the replies.
I once saw the guts of a Mac-10 suppressor back in '80. The blast baffle area was full of 12 ga empty primers..40-50. Does this work? I was told it trapped the gas but didn't hear it.

I have three other type II weapons which I bought back in 1980 and forgot the about the lengthy process. I am a bit dismayed that Tactical too...

Internal Threading

Just getting started and will probably screw up several tubes. I just bought a 7-14 mini lathe. Are there any links I can use to learn how to thread the internal tube and endcap?
Also where to buy the dyes, dies or whatever?
I plan to pick everone's brain along the way if you don't mind
Thanks

Is it ok for a third party to do the welding?

I am researching how to build a suppressor, what metals to use and what baffle designs to start with. I need to know if it is legal for a third party to weld the tube ends, or do I have to build the entire suppressor by myself? I have three type II weapons..American 180,M-16 and the Ingram Mac 10.
