    Default made some more scrap yesterday

    I like aluminum air rifle stocks made of 1/2" square al tubing and plywood. It's lightweight and suits me for squirrel hunting.

    Yesterday I learned a valuable lesson about making welds that do not require grinding. in the future I'll focus intently on producing welds that do not require cleanup.

    The joinery is done with a 1/2" straight cut router bit on my Harbor Freight router. The mecahnical fit was great and all was square but I trashed the project because of poor welds and further weakening the base material through grinding. These joints have potential but need a better weldor to make it happen. Next time, when I get over wasting materials.





    Here's what the prototype/first good effort produced. Yes, there's a conspicuous absence of close-up weld pictures.

    LMAO.

    If you need all that paraphernalia for shooting squirrels, you need to practice being a better shot.

    Talk about an "overengineered mousetrap". That thing wouldn't last half a day in the "field".

    Always nice to see where someone's "distractors" are coming from. Good to know that there's a "squirrel shooting", windsurfer out there that finds so much fault with my postings.

    Yepper,

    But at least I'm not a squirrel shooting, windfairy, who knows absolutlely nothing about welding or metal fabrication.

    You'd rather spend your time nitpicking my posts than learning how to weld.

    If I didn't know better, I'd swear Rube Goldburg designed that thing you posted photos of.

    There is a company making small weapons for small game to SHOOT BACK.
    Let's see how brave the great hunters handle this. Killing game for survival etc is one thing but for sport deserves a big "YOU SUCK".
