Re: Neptonics custom shafts

If you sort through a bundle of shafts then you always find some straighter than others by spinning them while standing on their butts and axially rotating them with your fingers as you sight along...

Re: Slingshot Weapon with pulleys

Energy imparted to a projectile is directly related to the work done in loading the weapon and that is the force applied over the draw distance, the force increasing until the weapon is latched. That...

Re: Slingshot Weapon with pulleys

This photo shows the gun cocked to shoot, note the run of the cable. The stroke of the cable or drive length is very short compared with the length of the gun. As a shaft shooting gun that short...

Re: Slingshot Weapon with pulleys

Still waiting for the missing trigger piece, but it is now obvious that this is really a ball bearing shooter. Ball bearings are loaded in the long upper slot of the barrel which serves as a sprung...

Re: Carp or Sterlet (Sturgeon) Soup video

I received an answer from the guy who put the first soup video up and it is Икра. I nearly fell off the chair because Икра is caviar!

Re: Carp or Sterlet (Sturgeon) Soup video

I was wondering that myself, which is why I went hunting for other versions. Whatever it is it looks rather odd, but the cook adds quite a lot of it to the soup. Sturgeon is a fish that is not...

Re: New C4 Gladius speargun

If C4 are going to have a new range of carbon fiber guns then I expect that rollers and inverted rollers may be on the menu. Taking a lead from the "Joker" it would be possible to offer one gun body...

Re: New C4 Gladius speargun

The handle on the Monoscocca was not to everyone's liking, especially with those blocky lumps all over it. They improved the grip, but looked pretty agricultural, especially for the money being paid...

Re: New C4 Gladius speargun

Looks like they are changing the muzzles by moving away from their cross bar designs which are all variations on bike frame attachments.

As to lengths manufacturers often round numbers up for...

Re: New Pelengas Carbon Tank multi form pneumatic gun

You put in as much pressure as you can load against and without blowing the gun to pieces, you can always let some air out. The hand pump gets hard to push at 40 bar, so it is a natural limit, plus...

Re: New Pelengas Carbon Tank multi form pneumatic gun

Pelengas use 12 mm diameter inner barrels in all of their guns and the Carbon gun's rear handle is used in other models, so that for the moment is what they have to use. They need to maintain some...

Re: Pelengas Pneumatic Spearguns

There is now a "Varvar" model which has a new trigger mechanism. Instead of a “see-saw” sear lever, which is essentially a flattened single piece trigger, the new gun uses an unstable sear lever...

Re: New Pelengas Carbon Tank multi form pneumatic gun

The Pelengas Carbon uses a different type of vacuum cuff with a bell type mouth on the end of the rubber nozzle. The latest guns from the company all have a different plastic fitting that screws on...

Re: Pathos muzzle line guide

You can always affix a narrow stainless steel plate with the screw behind the loop, put a downward bend in the front of the plate and drill a line hole through it and then use both holes to anchor...

Re: Pathos muzzle line guide

Like an iceberg there will be more to that metal loop than you can see, its hidden extensions probably go right up into the molding when the plastic was molded around it. To get the loop free you...

Re: Anatomy of Free Diver Death

Re: Tool to cut yourself out of kelp quickly?
