Re: Anyone here run a thickness planer?

I have the Grizzly 12 1/2” . Picked it up when on sale for around $225 . It works quite well. I have planed a lot of Walnut and Maple with it. I run a scrap piece of wood along side the good piece to avoid snipe. No problem.

Re: Red Dots on Handguns

I have red dots on several handguns and scopes on a couple. The red dots are better than a scope for me" I have a Ruger 6” GP100 .357 mag. That shoots like a rifle. I also liked it with irons so I just had to buy another one so I had a choice.

Re: Windshield Wiper Groups

I would suspect a bad scope , Mount or bases. Also bedding issues can give the same results. I had a Rem. 700 .243 that shot that way until I bedded it and floated the barrel. It then became a tack driver.

Re: Stainless steel tumblers

I have the Thumblers B also. Using SS pins,Dawn dish soap and Lemmie Shine the brass comes out prettier than new. I deprive and resize before the polish and dry in the oven or in the sun on a summer day. It’s a pleasure to reload ammo that’s better than factory.

Re: Question for the AR guys here.

Just looking to see what is available as far as parts go. I’d kinda like a rifle in about 20” barrel with a scope.
Building an AR15 seems simpler about choices of parts. It’s just going to be a range toy. I don’t hunt any more.
