Off-Topic Discussion / Re: What did you do today?

I have been working on one garage door opener off and on for a couple of weeks. Had to release tension as it was jammed at the top of the opener. Lost part of the master link. On the 2nd trip to the hardware store finally found a clerk who knew what I was talking about. Problem was that I didn't know the size of the roller chain so ended up not being able to put it back together. Did a redneck repair using a short piece of wire clothes hanger. Found a part of the missing master link so was finally able to get the right size. Putting it together, I dropped the spring clip retainer.....twice. Found it the first time, looked for over 20 minutes the 2nd time. Came to the house fuming (understatement!), wife asked if she could help. She came down to the garage, asked where I dropped it, walked over to the side and picked it up :-[   Set chain tension, adjusted up and down travel, good to go.

There are areas in the south/west/east have had much more snow than we have had. The snow we have is probably going to be gone (again) by tomorrow.

Maybe for a display gun I would keep the brass polished. Anything else I just let the brass naturally dull.

That's one of the few places we didn't visit over the years of visiting my parents in Las Cruces. Guess I never knew where it was located.

I voted with the rest; leave this one as-is after cleaning and replacing missing parts.

I have never been a big fan of large knives, but I do agree that is one fine specimen housed in a very nice case!

Steve, I admire your endurance. It has been many a year since I did any primitive winter camping. As probably the senior member here (age-wise) I do miss those times, but those are just distant memories to be re-lived fondly. Also, my excursions were not in the high country; plenty of snow and cold though!

That photo shows the repriming punch in operation.  Here is another photo showing the case in place. I don't know if this tool is for the 45-70 (shown) or one of the offspring...40-65, 38-56, etc. There is no caliber marking on the tool. Maybe the (missing) accessories carried the caliber stamp?

After seeing Scoobie's post about his '94 reloading tool I went to find mine. Didn't come across it (pretty sure I DO have one....someplace), but decided to post this Mdl. 1888 Winchester tool.
