Unread postAuthor: jsefcik » Sat May 19, 2012 8:52 pm

over the past couple days in my neighborhood its spring clean up, which is pretty much throw out as much as possible, and can be what ever, but me being a teenager with not alot of money ,i collect appliances and scrap, i was able to get appliaces, copper , aluminum, and have made about 350 bucks and was given to my mom for bills and baby needs,

i also cleaned up my friends propetry of an old car and burning barrels and made about 200 from him and just recently i told him if somone has junk give me a call asap!!

well about 5 minutes ago my phone rang and my buddy asked if i wanted more scrap and i talked to him and the land owner said

i have 2 riding mowers, lots of push mowers and a huge pool, which is mainly aluminum!!!! aluminum is very high in my area about 250-275 lb depending on which scrap yard i got too,

and was told its all mine!!!!!! im so pumped to go get the rest of this scrap and fill my bank account with lots of money!!!!!!! :D :D

Sure, share the work! I'm not a big art fan, but I need to see stuff to keep my mind off of things...

What? no paraphernalia? :lol:
But those look really neat- what kind of glaze is that on the chest? It looks really metallic compared to the rest.

I briefly worked* in a place that did similar stuff, and had thought of making a ceramic combustion chamber lining and plating it with gold inside for ultimate heat reflectance. You could probably get a few ml of that glaze for a reasonable price.

*I never made anything pretty, and have little experience in the entire process; don't ask me for advice;)

While it's nice to hear you are doing well, the non-spudgun related section isn't an off-topic section so I've merged your topic with this one.

Very nice!

I did spend a year of my education where we had ceramic class, but most of that was spent manufacturing enormous clay willies to frighten Sarah Wallis.

this is what i made in year 7 or 8


Drag racing funnycar or this?

Moar ghost recon killer drones, this time small enough to fit in one hand (appears at around 1:00, then returns to the "operator" at the end.)

The main glaze on the chest is called "Makoto" but I believe it's a cobalt based glazed. And the straps on it are glazed with "metallic" that might be copper based. It was fired at 1850 degrees, and both glazes are fairly unpredictable

Someone out there has an awesome dad, with a lax policy on limiting rocket ejection charges :D

Also, this is pretty F***ing awesome!

While everyone out there is trying to make weapons lighter, these guys seem to have headed in the opposite direction.

Q: What does the Titan shroud do?

A: Unlike most products on the market, the shroud is built of steel to get as much weight and

hardiness into its constructed dimensions. This additional weight absorbs recoil, diminishes

barrel torque, and completely eliminates muzzle rise all together. Its secondary purpose is

to provide nearly indestructible protection for your barrel and barrel components.


Minus points for the English fail here:

Our products will be warrantied for life as long as the products are used in a manor consistant with their application.


... still, I like the concept!

Yup... still, shame about the relatively feeble calibre. At least 338 lapua would make more sense, this is obviously something to be used from a fixed position so might as well extend its reach.

OK, the possibility of small autonomous attack drones is getting really scary...

EVERYONE!!!!!

Im again starting new puukko after i get Lab´s order finished, planning to do that today. Anyhow, im thinking a longish, and sleek blade with about 100mm, silversteel ofc. Handle is going to be made from birchbarn and bolsters will be 10mm aluminium, and the shieth will be traditional 3mm vegetable tanned bullhide. Im asking 130€ plus shipping from this. Just informed you if someone wants it.

That rifle still shoves him around a bit, a light 12GA doesn't push me around that much.

I do want though, badly.
