  1. So the rails arrived in good condition and they are much heavier duty than I anticipated!!! I haven't been able to take a really close look but so far so good!!!
  2. I have not bought from them. I will keep you informed on how everything arrives.
  3. The dovetail on the big 674 lber is mucked up pretty good. I am going to build a jig to mount my angle grinder to and cut a new dovetail. I ordered these to build the jig.
  4. It seems like everything is there. Definitely needs new toggle arms and I'm sure it will need new babbits poured. The good thing is there is still good customer service for these machines and I'm sure most the parts are available. If it were me I would pull the trigger.
  5. I got my anvils today. What a major pain in the butt this was. Somehow they got stuck in Chicago and they couldn't find a truck to haul them to Detroit. I ended up just having them shipped to my door for an extra $135. Pretty reasonable cost considering the weight. I will upload some pictures in a little while.
  6. Looks like the mystery anvil is 200g/440lbs. Not sure what style yet but I have a feeling it is a hornless church window anvil.
  7. I was going through the paperwork for these anvils and it turns out I bought 6 anvils not 5....
  8. But then again he gives me beef in exchange for little welding jobs so I do get to taste them every now and then.
  9. My neighbor has about 30 cows. That would be a 550 yard shot from my dining room table! Trust me....I've measured it!!!
  10. Crow hunting is fun. But they are hard to hit at 300 yards!!!
  11. It's been over a year of the pandemic and my anvils finally made it stateside!!!! 1085 kg of wonderfulness!!! I just need to plan a trip to Detroit to pick them up.
  12. Newest AR build is well under way. This one will be a .300 AAC Blackout pistol. I need to get a barrel, gas block, gas tube, and a bolt carrier group. I am also going to file a form 1 and pay my $200 tax stamp to build a suppressor. I am still unsure about using the tube hand guard. I think I'm going to order an M-lok hand guard and a 9 inch barrel. To get a sense of how long a 9 inch barrel is, this is a 9 inch hand guard that's on it.
  13. Based on the 45 gallon spray rig behind it I would say it's closer to 100+ lbs Its definitely a score!!!!
  14. That would be nice to carry. Some people would call my Grendel an "assault weapon" but at 13.2 lbs you would have to be Shaquille o'neal to use it in a tactical manner. I built mine as a bench gun. It has a full 1 inch diameter bull barrel up to the gas block and then its ¾ of an inch to the muzzle brake. When it comes to hunting deer sized game I really enjoy using my savage model 340 30/30 bolt action with open sights. It is dated to around 1958-1959. This one is my wife's AR I bought her for her birthday one year. It is a Great Lakes Firearms chambered in .223 wylde. Made in Sp
  15. WOW Gary that gun is amazing. Have you ever seen Mark and Sam after work on YouTube? There an Aussie couple and he shoots ELR. Its incredible what you can accomplish with a good machine shop and even better reloading shop. Here is the brake I bought and I really like it. This is the original brake I had on it and there is a substantial difference in recoil. This is the next muzzle brake I'm going to try out. https://www.grendelhunter.com/product/grendel-hunter-slanted-muzzle-brake-black/
  16. A little project I've been working on over the last couple months. Well I bought the lower receiver back in September of 2019 but just made a push to get it finished. If anyone is interested in the breakdown of the parts and what they all cost I can figure it all out and post it. I took 8 shots at this plate at 420 yards and was on target after three shots and hit 5 times. It is chambered in the 6.5 grendel.
  17. Just out of curiosity, what would you consider painfully expensive? For 385€ you could have something like this 60 lb beauty.
  18. I actually bought the very first anvil on that same page
  19. We got a new puppy. He is ¼ Newfoundland ¼ great pyrenees ¼ husky ¼ Australian something? His name is Dozer.
  20. I built up a stash of charcoal. I might go and get more for a smelting run
  21. you can please all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but you can't please all of the people all of the time.
  22. The only thing I can think of that might cause any issues is the C-clamp. I understand work arounds. I had to do a lot of tweaking to get mine to run right. What I am thinking it the C-clamp looks like it may have slid up a little and and is causing a little twisting action to happen.can we get a picture of the other side to maybe help do a further inspection?
  23. SOLD I have a set of tongs up for sale. Before I put them on Ebay I figured I would offer a deal here. Long round reigns that are good for gas forges. Made from 1045/1050 steel (1¼inch hex jackhammer bit?) that are set for 1½x¼ inch flat bar. I can adjust them to just about any size upon request. $35 + $12.50 shipping to the continental United States
