  1. I just stumbled on this post and glad I did. I'm having the same problem. Thanks Norm, for the work around.
  2. Quite a collection. Nice work.
  3. Those are neat lures Philly. Are they made from cork or balsa wood?
  4. Not clear to me just how that is tied or how durable it would be, but it's got a super action.
  5. Yea, I can see your point. And those are great looking poppers.
  6. Creative I guess but a lot simpler and less messy to just buy them pre-formed. That must create a huge dust mess.
  7. Several years ago I had the opportunity to tour the Waspi factory in Mountain Home, AR. That is how they do a lot of their packaging. They will take a large bag of dubbing and a bunch of little bags to a women at her home and she will do the individual packaging and labeling. Same with all sorts of their products.
  8. You did a great job on that rod. I've built a lot of glass and graphite over the years but have only re-wrapped a couple of bamboos. Can't imagine the amount of time and work they take to build from scratch.
  9. A dremal tool with a honing stone does a great job of tapering the guide feet. Don't know if this has been mentioned or not but Tom Kirkman's book on building rods is an excellent guide. and reasonably priced. Tom is the owner/administrator of the rodbuildinf.org site. A wealth of info on that site.
  10. Isn't that one a different design?

    Interesting video. First time I ever saw a Nun wearing a wedding ring!
  12. Dremel used to make them. Don't know if they still do or not. You could get different saw blades that fit into a handle.
  13. Utyer's advise is spot on. He helped me on my Barricuda. Place the hook in the jaw and adjust the cone till it is touching the hook. Then back it off (open it up) just a bit. This will allow the lever to securely pop into the indent. If you don't pop it into the indent the hook will slip.
  14. I'm a little late to this thread but wanted to add my two cents. I have an older desktop and laptop PC's and both were getting slow. I added a SSD in place of the HD in the desktop and upped the RAM from 8 to 12 gigs. Wow! Turned a Model T into a Corvette. So I then switched from the HD to a SSD in the laptop but left ram at 8 gigs. Still, really worth the extra $150 as it really improved the speed. I agree with Sillver. If I had it all to do over again I would go all Apple in place of PC.. My son tried to convince me but I wouldn't listen. I got him an Apple when he got out of high school in 1991. That little computer served him well through 4 years of college and 4 years of medical school. And it still works. He now uses the ipad pro for just about all his work and home stuff. Apple is more expensive to get into but so much more hassle free than PC's. Also, like a fool I let my broker talk me out of buying Apple stock. He said it was just a commodity company.
