  1. The 120 acre claim Wes and I have in Iowa Hill is a whacko shape also. It is legally described by government parcel numbers that were created when much of the land near it was government surveyed for patents. If memory serves me correct it has 15 or 16 corners

    Well Dang everyone. just finished reading the entire thread. Dave, it is coming along very well. One comment, if you have the means($$$) to use a magneto do it, It would be far superior to a distributor, especially for prop starting. Not to mention reliability issues. Personally I would never ever want to depend on a battery to keep the motor running. I'll be here a bunch more to see the progress......and of course throw in my 2cents

    Mystery Wires

    looking at the wires, some have a corrugated pattern and some are straighter. I would guess they were originally together in a weaved pattern and may have been a screen of some sort.....If they are brittle that might indicate some nickle in the alloy and that is why they might not rust that much....just a WAG.

    Its is called a Crosspoint Sniper 370 mad by the Crossman Company famous for air rifles & Cabelas sells it. I researched these things for a long time. I certainly did not want to spend a grand or more for one that is capable of shooting more than 350 fps. I also went to stores and tried was not happy with the fit of many fixed stock units. When I sow how adjustable the Stock and for-end were, how fast it shot, was made in the USA by a reputable company and it was available for $300 or less I was sold. I have not been disappointed at all. http://www.cabelas.com/product/CENTER-POINT-SNIPER-CAMO-CROSSBOW-PACKAGE/2359254.uts?searchPath=%2Fbrowse.cmd%3FcategoryId%3D734095080%26CQ_search%3Dcrosspoint%2Bsniper%2B370%26CQ_st%3Db http://www.crosman.com/archery/centerpoint-crossbows/sniper-370-camo

    I have always wanted one of these and picked this up. A little zeroing in and it's deadly accurate out to 30 yards. Shoots a 100 grain bolt at 370fps. I have not shot it further yet but will soon. Going to try to behead a turkey this fall. Anyone else here shoot these?

    Silver Detector

    Bet you wondered what that was? A Lady detectorist in Virginia asked for one of these and here is what she got. It was fun to make.
