I'm a Kukri knife fan and wasn't expecting much for $20 but was pleasantly surprised after sharpening and testing this big knife out. I will be modifying the handle as when chopping from the right the Kukri is twisting and glancing to the left, and that's how it nicked my knuckle.
Cut down some dangerous tree sections today, both would have ended up on my house or power lines. Black Walnut and Hackberry make good bows and will be doing a follow up as I cut and rive these for bow staves.
Happy Halloween! The longbow is completed, it finished up 45# @ 28", 72" in length and has 2" of string follow on the upper limb, with 1 1/2" on the lower. Sanded down, 2 coats of urethane, and built a 14 strand string of B-50. Not fast I'm sure, but a sweet shooter with accuracy potential.
A few $1 store items I picked up recently that will be going into my hiking, camping, survival gear.
Department store bicycle pedals, these can confuse you because the left hand side of the bicycle has reverse threads to keep the parts from unscrewing themselves while you are riding. A small crescent wrench will usually work to remove or attach and since I do a lot of them I use a dedicated pedal wrench which sometimes is the only tool you can get into the area.
Sorry - my camera shut off & I didn't realize it, but was done except for saying goodbye, so there you go, lol. I enjoy my 202 and have been using it for at least 18 years, I can cut out zinc cents in notch or auto notch and still detect Indian Head Pennies, something most detectors can't do. Remove any trash you dig & cover your holes back & have a GREAT time!
Acorn & Butternut squash are called Winter squash because they will keep through the winter. Of course they need to be grown in warm weather, and are considered 120 days to maturation. So depending on your zones average frost date you need to plant them 4 months ahead of that frost date.
First hunt with the Bounty Hunter Junior, needs some mods at this point which I have now completed.
Calibrating & marking your discriminator is of primary importance on any beep and dig metal detector.
