Re: 1st Krag Kit package, arrived today!

It would make sense that one of the very first operations would create a feature that subsequent operations would be located from. Keep it up, I already think of you as a MIT. They are turning out to be conversation starters. Now MIT in this case is not the school in that place hard to spell, but Ma...

Re: Ned Spamhaus

I was thinking my issues with Spamhaus were over after posting from both my work and home computers for a week or more with no issues. Came back today with both. It is built into the forum software that it does a check with Spamhaus before it lets a post or PM be uploaded. Its purpose is to get malw...

Re: ist Krag Kit package, arrived today!

Yeah, for conversation and understanding how they were made, they are great. Paper weights good too. The time to set up and finish, one figure a thousand dollars a piece. Maybe underestimated by a big factor. It really would be interesting to see the raw receivers, bolts, and other parts also.

Re: What is up?

I think a lot of people do internet searches and find one thread with info and are satisfied with the answer. That thread I started about 35 Krag loads has 15,000+ views. We did not view it that many times. I would guess 80% of the views are from casual readers. There are quite a few threads like th...

Re: Ned Private messages

OK, PM is working and probably always was working. Looks like the messages stay in the out box till someone reads them. I was thinking they were stuck in limbo because I did not know how to finish sending the message.

Ned Private messages

Ned, I did get the test message. I tried to reply but it seems to be stuck in the out box with a couple of other old PMs that I can not find a way to send. I clicked on submit when I finished the reply. Maybe I should have saved it as a draft then tried to send it? Not sure if it is broken or I am n...

Re: My new krag info needed please

I have not been able to PM either. The messages seem to go to a holding area (maybe drafts) from where they are unable to be nudged out. If you have a Windows computer you can open the photos in "paint", one of your options will be to reduce the size. Large photos I may use 60% reduction, photos tha...

Re: Just Curious

Now that you mention it. I am not sure if the info has ever been displayed on KCA.com. I looked in my user control panel and it does show my location. I did not see any options for turning that function on or off on threads. List me as puzzled also. Possibly dense for not noticing it till now. Hey, ...

Re: banded front-sight job

On the Practical Machinist forum, they have a saying "no pictures it did not happen". Come back today there are pictures and socks to boot. Looks good as all the stuff you have been doing.

Re: member psteinmayer

Paul, I am glad you are OK. Taking care of parents is sometimes hard, but I miss them now that they are gone. Hope you have more good days than difficult ones.
