Re: My Latest build

Beautiful gun! And I am truly jealous of that CNC router....

BTW, did you just lay the new gun on top of a tipped BBQ? XD XD XD

Re: Storing wetsuits

You guys are doing it all wrong. Best way is to buy the suit, put it on and don't take it off until it is time to replace it (along with full body skin draft). How you deal with nature calls, is up...

Re: JBL M10 Trigger Mechanism

No input about the mech, but I too was getting that error while trying to access Spearboard as a whole a few days ago. Let's hope it is solved already.

Re: Cracked Fins

I guess that the exact location of the crack is showing exactly what the problem is... Those blades and the rails are not a good match. Rails seem to be too rigid and instead of allowing the blade to...

Re: Mount a reel on a wooden gun

Inserts are cool... but the problem is that you are actually cutting through more wood fibers than using a simple screw.

For cheapo inserts, instead of trying to source the uber-expensive...

Re: Cuttled Barrel Ballasting

Re: DIY: How to cast PU handles for guns

If we are talking about toughness.... I really have no idea. Abellan guns have PU handles and I haven't heard of any braking... if that means somehting.

Re: DIY: MK2 Single band CF skinned 98cm band stretch gun

Not 100% corrected, but it shots where I point it and the tension from the CF reinforcements+epoxy helped A LOT.

Re: DIY: How to cast PU handles for guns

I must confess that one of my (many) problems is that even if I am only going to make a one off (or two) of something... I like to do it the "right" way... Which means going full blown on tools,...

Re: DIY: MK2 Single band CF skinned 98cm band stretch gun

Hello all,

This is not a WIP thread since the gun was finished in March 2017. I had it posted in a different forum but I feel it might be useful for someone who starts building guns.

Re: DIY: How to cast PU handles for guns

Re: New knife

Out of the box sharpness shouldn't be considered a good indicator of knife quality. If you are into knives (or even if you just used them) you should be able to get them sharp.
