Besides if someone is intent on stealing a trailer , I highly doubt the vin application matters to them ....

Re: Compressor woes

That's great you were able to repair it . I had a 60gal Craftman I picked up used , one of those oil-less types . I paid 300 for it , the compressor had been replaced under warranty already .

Re: Remington front sling swivel mounting screw threads

Have any derlin or nylon rod that you could twist in to score a thread rate on ?
Maybe cast pour a Cerosafe plug ?

Not as important if the scope is for visual or video astronomy . But awful for long exposures , compound possible by the fo...

Re: Help in making a tiny bushing
