    Tubing Bender question

    I offer up the option of 1.75" and 1.25" dies (both about 3x tube dia.) I found I was using my 1.75" 3:1 over my 1.50" for bumper & cage work. For smaller projects (car brushguards, gussets, swingout add-ons) I was using the 1.25" - much more than my 1.00" die.

    Coleman Addiction.....for pesants. ha ha ha!

    No worries! I know there are lots of weird variations of products all over the place... I came across this model in a thread here at ExPo - purchased one, and haven't seen them since! It's worked very well for many seasons. I especially like this table design because it puts you actually under...

    Coleman Addiction.....for pesants. ha ha ha!

    Um, dunno what to tell you...It has Coleman printed/embossed all over it. The box has this lovely young couple on it too. Unfortunately, my box got lost in a house move.

    S'mores !

    I find the Reese's PBCs soften best if heated separately (i.e. on spatula) for a bit then slid onto the cracker/cookies. Lately we've also been melting the chocolate and marshmallows together and scooping with pretzels. The salty crunch is a wonderful addition!

    Rebuilding Old Coleman Stoves

    I have one of the older 2 burner white gas stoves that - when I store in an enclosed box, creates a pretty strong fuel odor. Is the tank venting/leaking? There is no visible fuel accumulating anywhere (that I can tell) Is this normal at all? Any maintenance tricks I might be missing?

    How to make a Nozzle/Spigot thingy for your Scepter/LCI water can

    This might have an obvious solution, but my LCIs do not line up well for pouring. i.e. the relief valve is not really above the spout opening. How would one go about accurately sanding down the filler neck to get everything to line up correctly? Simple trial and error, or...?

    As a recent DSLR noob, a few things I am starting to effectively understand are: how to interpret a histogram. spot metering vs evaluative. making ISO your b*tch. The other arena is knowing your way around editing software. This can turn a mediocre picture into something worthwhile as long as...

    Fire Extinguisher

    From my days in the rally car, I strongly suggest being able to reach the extinguisher from your seated position. Only because it's not outside the realm of possibility that you or others can be trapped in place i.e. crash, rollover, etc. Or that the wiring is already getting fried and you are...
