I want to write about some court cases, but bluntly, there is nothing new happening. Everything is sitting at the circuit courts or the Supreme Court, waiting for movement.

We should be hearing on Rahimi in the next 20 days or so.

We are waiting to find out if cert will be granted in any of the 2A cases before the Supreme Court.

We are waiting for opinions on cases that have been heard in a few circuit courts.


Thank you to those of you that purchased coffee ($5) and a month of services ($50), it helps.

We still need more, we haven’t made our minimums for the year. Please help if you can.


It is so nice to have all the right tools to do “the thing”. I was cutting dovetails with a 1/2″ 60° dovetail cutter, it didn’t cut deep enough to complete the dovetail. I ordered a 3/4″ 60° cutter. It cut deep enough, but not high enough. I did some math and was able to make a finishing cut to finish the dovetail.

Yesterday I was using a 25 mm 60° dovetail cutter. Full cut. So much nicer. Deciding I was willing to use a 25 mm cutter instead of demanding a 1″ cutter dropped the price substantially. I can cut full depth and full height in one pass.

I now have exactly ONE metric R8 collet. Oh, well.

Cutting with a 3/4″ solid carbide end mill is interesting. Much more stiffness, much better results.


A few days ago, dad was in a minor car accident. The hospital admitted him for observations and because his lab work was a little off.

Yesterday afternoon he coded. They brought him back. Bro, a doctor, is with him. It doesn’t look good. Bro and I will be making the decision today.

It hurts.

Spread the love

  1. Yes, it does.
    /wipes eyes….

    I still miss my dad greatly, and its been three years..

    Hope things turn out for the best for everyone, and praying for peace in your heart.

  2. My sympathies. Its not an easy decision. Hopefully the information and condition will be so obvious as to make it easier, that was a blessing for my family.

  3. Sorry to hear about your Dad.
    Does not matter whether you expect it or it is a surprise, it hurts. Tough to lose a family member, and even tougher if that member was not just a father, but also a mentor and friend.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
