    The reason that I ask as to have you tried gluing your stock "as is" is because some "super glue" adhesives seem able to tolerate a certain amount of oil in the wood and still work. However, there...

    I don't "overly worry" about what soft solder I use as fluxed and non fluxed will work. The variations of soft solder available will work at slightly varying temperatures. If you follow the correct...

    Glider Film

    I found this glider film which looks quite interesting despite the lack of sound.

    I bet that the chap driving the jeep out of the glider "appreciated" the "shower of sand" (1.57min) kindly...

    Mystery Frog?

    Any thoughts on the origin of this frog or which bayonet it's for, please? It came with a pigsticker bayonet which is slightly ridiculous as it's even too big for a 1907 scabbard. It appears to be...
