    Looks like the IRS are having second thoughts on the PayPal issue

    I'll gladly take my chances with individual thieves rather than the collective ones that claim the theft is for my own good. Get some Lysander Spooner in your life!! "If taxation without consent is not robbery, then any band of robbers have only to declare themselves a government, and all their...

    Looks like the IRS are having second thoughts on the PayPal issue

    "And taxes are not theft--taxes are what we pay to live in an orderly society." What's "orderly" about a system that shakes everyone down under the threat of violence? If someone forcibly takes 100% of another's output, they have made them their slave. But, should grand profiteer maggots...

    Mass Shooting At Maine Pool Hall & Bowling Alley

    Doubtful. Intellectual honesty is far too lofty an expectation from any flavor of the voting cattle.

    Mass Shooting At Maine Pool Hall & Bowling Alley

    Is anyone in this discussion empowered to determine what another is allowed to own or the manner they choose to defend themselves (and others)? Can anyone grant to another a right that they don't already have themselves? If the claimed to be "just government" is derived from the consent of the...

    How can we change a coin-operated table to a drop pocket--easily?

    Same way I extended play as a little kid... an ashtray in each pocket

    Gold Crown Adventure

    An artist, I am not. The dial on the left, ( the one that look like it was painted by toddler), is the last to be done. It takes a lot of rubbing with a microfiber towel and scraping with the back of a knife blade, but the paint that's on top of the dial will come off.

    Gold Crown Adventure

    a wd40 soak and scrub, on repeat, got the gunk off. I scraped some varnished soda or something off two of the dials with my pocket knife. I then painted the numerals with a tiny brush and model paint. I will touch up some paint again and clean them up. Second set just started their soak.

    Gloves

    My localish billiard supply store has them, so I dunno. The link I shared was the result of an internet search for the purpose of posting in this thread. I didn't order from that link.

    Gold Crown Adventure

    I got away from the farm, into the big city (100k is a cig city in Montana) and got stocked with sanding and painting supplies to proceed on to the "furniture" parts of this resto-mod. I still haven't decided on a sprayer set up and am considering just having it sprayed by a local body shop...

    I think I'll live with mine too. Probably polish it a little more and call it good enough.

    Gold Crown Adventure

    I worked on this piece last night... and quit when I saw this. I thought I had buffed too long on a spot, but then it occurred to me that the two near identical rub spots were a triangles width apart and only on the bottom crossbar of this piece, so maybe I didn't mess it up. Is this piece...

    Gold Crown Adventure

    The rail edges took more time than the pocket castings and feet did. They've still got two more stages of polish to go, too. A lesson learned on them was to not use a wire wheel to take them down. It got them clean enough, but it didn't shine like the sanded down did. So, one took a ton of...
