beautiful work.. I have a small project that has been stuck in my head for a while.

I have a aluminum part that needs some machine 'expertise'.  Its a small stabilizer for a pistol that I want to add some factory weights without ruining the whole thing..

if I could figure out how to pm you or get info without hitting up the whole forum, I would.

thanks

dean

Nice!

Last week a couple rednecks down the street enlisted me to "help hold" a Chebby big block they were itching to fire for the first time.

Floppy engine stand, throttle happy crackers...and a funnel of gas hanging off the shelf...

(psst...hey buddy....psst... take your hand off the headers...no you can't hold it there, trust me)

 

I see some of dem Chebby guys been working out eh? Yah... good idea to be in shape if YOU KNOW you're gonna have to walk 😉

 

Another guy I just met (through the "wife from Philippines network")  is a airboat mechanic (certified) and was bitchin about the 502s they're getting that need complete disassembly and re-machined before entering service.

Totally out of balance, valves.... don't even wanna talk about THAT... and even one with random compression..... meh.... what's 15%?... it'll go 100,000 miles! (says the BS salesman)

 

Porting chainsaw jugs has got SOooooo much easier with a mill, F ---> dremels.

2 hours? try 20 mins! woot!

 

Ok I'm done....  wrong forum (he started it)

 

Wait.... no I'm not.

The scariest thing happened the other day....

I was holding an Eaton M90 (have 3 of them) and walked past my F-150 with 4.9 I6....

and set it down on the upper intake..... oh crap.... the pulleys line up almost perfect..... just need a second belt and crank pulley to accommodate ... K6 belt... childsplay

Word on the street is that the 4.9 can handle 6psi like a champ........ even worse.... turbos are cheap and EASY to plumb on straight motors... and the ACTUAL word on the street is that the 4.9 can handle 8psi.

What have I done  to myself????? 😉

 

 

There you have it, the world according to John.

Hey 220swift,

What happened to theAirgunAdvice forum? Bummed me out when I went to it and it was gone. I know, probably a pain with all that you do and taking care of a forum too. I love your work by the way, so please keep posting your stuff here.

Thank you

PatrickB
