#56760 Fast-action Rifle Writeup And Plans

Posted by Jakethesnake on 06 June 2005 - 02:21 PM in Homemades

Bolt, correct me if I'm wrong but I think there's an error with your measurements on your spreadsheet write up, you have the butt of the stock made out of 1" pvc, and it says to cut it to 1" in length? I think that's a typo or something, anyways I'm not too worried about it but just letting ya know.



#56540 Fast-action Rifle Writeup And Plans

Posted by Jakethesnake on 04 June 2005 - 11:05 AM in Homemades

Alright thanks a bunch, that helps, and also I searched all over and couldn't find a place where you mentioned getting music wire. Just a "music" store? hmm, where'd you get yours at? Again, thanks.



#56522 Fast-action Rifle Writeup And Plans

Posted by Jakethesnake on 04 June 2005 - 01:28 AM in Homemades

Call me stupid but......bolt on your excel spreadsheet writeup your measurements are in inches right? Well some of the pieces measure 6.3",7.2" 9.7" etc. How can you measure that way if inches are not based on multiples of ten. Shouldn't it be 1/2" 1/4" 1/8" 1/16" 1/32" etc. I know I'm probably missing something really obvious so please don't flame me for asking such a simple question but I don't understand, please help me!



#56437 Back In Black

I never mentioned anything about sch80, I asked about sch40.



#56435 Back In Black

Posted by Jakethesnake on 02 June 2005 - 11:53 PM in Homemades

It's always grayish colored right? What length of sections does it come in?



#56433 Back In Black

Posted by Jakethesnake on 02 June 2005 - 11:40 PM in Homemades

Where did you get most of you supplies, does Home dep. or Lowes carry sch40? I couldn't find it when I was there, I'm almost positive they'd have to carry it but I searched forever and couldn't find it.



#56388 Back In Black

Posted by Jakethesnake on 02 June 2005 - 04:49 PM in Homemades

How much have you spent on supplies altogether?



#56369 Lucky Finds

Where did you get the cases of PC's I mean did you have to ask them to go to the back and get some for you?

A couple years ago they changed the format of the playoffs and decided to stretch the games out, particularly at this point in the playoffs where there's only, well, 3 teams as of tonight :lol: (go spurs!!!!) But I think their new format sucks horribly, the finals used to be over by this time but now they're not even started, granted sometimes things go longer because the series are taken to 7 games, but they also changed the first round from best out of 5 to best out of 7, that also didn't help shorten things.



#56344 Lucky Finds

Posted by Jakethesnake on 02 June 2005 - 12:48 AM in General Nerf

PC for 2.99
Wildfire 3.99
Eab 2.99
Secret Shot I or 1? i dunno the first secret shot-.99
SM 3000 yellow tank 3.99


All at goodwill or various thrift stores. Patience though, it took me 2 months for all that, and I'm still searching.

Spurs will take it all the way, they are way too solid of a team with tim to lose.

You can download any nintendo game ever made onto your revolution from home. And yes X-box will be releasing halo-3 on the same day as the PS3 gets released.



#55192 Political Discussion

Posted by Jakethesnake on 18 May 2005 - 05:12 PM in Off Topic

Look at it this way: To the people that make guns dangerous, I.E. criminals thieves, terrorists, or whoever, you think that making guns illegal is going to stop them from shooting people? They will obtain guns if it is legal or not, simply making a law isn't going to stop them. By making guns illegal, then you are just denying the responsible people who wouldn't harm others the right to carry them. In my opinion, the facts just don't add up. Oh and I would just like to add, that this is a "discussion", let's keep it that way, these are only peoples opinions, respect them, and they will respect you.

I like the looks of the nintendo best.

Idont usually complement others on nerf guns, but Frank, you have my respect. ::Salutes::

What did you use to glue/bond the wood together?

THIRST

Wood glue would be my guess.

#54988 Family Guy - Season Four

Posted by Jakethesnake on 16 May 2005 - 12:14 AM in Off Topic

I think TV is become more and more crude, not to sound like my grandma, but I cringe at the thought of what my children will be watching 20 years down the road.



#54795 Potato Cannons

Posted by Jakethesnake on 13 May 2005 - 03:35 PM in Off Topic

I built a 5 1/2 ft trebuchet in shop class in high school, it shot pretty good, but the floating arm ones are better. Bolt, how big was yours?



#54189 Ebay: Jurassic Park Blaster

Posted by Jakethesnake on 05 May 2005 - 12:50 AM in General Nerf

Like what...



#54031 Ebay: Jurassic Park Blaster

Posted by Jakethesnake on 02 May 2005 - 05:25 PM in General Nerf

Since he said his sons bought them at universal studios, I doubt very many people have them, and you probably just ruined your chance of winning them by showing all of us that auction.



#53772 Secret Shot Modē

Posted by Jakethesnake on 29 April 2005 - 10:18 AM in Modifications

Micros, they fit super tight in the barrel if that has anything to do with it. (I think it does)



#53763 Secret Shot Modē

Posted by Jakethesnake on 29 April 2005 - 12:24 AM in Modifications

30-40 ft? I just single barreled mine (cpvc) and it gets 60 ft flat, it's amazing, I like it better than nite finders.



#53702 Los Angeles, Mexico

Posted by Jakethesnake on 28 April 2005 - 01:17 AM in Off Topic

I find that people whining about immigrants tends to be like people whining about newbs on forums.


Except that 15 million of them are illegal, and every one of them that has children or is young enough to be enrolled in school gets a k through 12 education worth $120,000, none of which they are paying for whatsoever, that comes straight out of our tax dollars.
Not to mention free healthcare that they are "paying" for, which really means they get that for free too because they aren't a legal U.S. citizen, which means they aren't paying taxes, which means they don't deserve the benefits that they are receiving. That's the only problem I have with them, is that they are making our economy stageringly unbalanced. If you don't believe those numbers, look them up for yourself, they are true.



#53329 Your Ride?

What does the president have to do with high gas prices.



#53310 Your Ride?

Posted by Jakethesnake on 24 April 2005 - 12:54 AM in Off Topic

I didn't time how long it took, but I was doing 103 down this straightaway last night. Good times.



#53309 Stefan Making Tip

Posted by Jakethesnake on 24 April 2005 - 12:52 AM in General Nerf

About the flat tip dart/pain theory, think of it like this, the dome tipped darts are like doing a cannon ball in the water, it doesn't hurt to jump in, but a flat tipped dart is like a belly flop, it hurts like a mother, so, I think flat tips would hurt more, but again, that's just my theory.



#53307 Your Ride?

Posted by Jakethesnake on 24 April 2005 - 12:47 AM in Off Topic

03' Honda Element, don't knock it till you've ridden in one.



#53251 Tire Stems

Posted by Jakethesnake on 23 April 2005 - 12:41 AM in Homemades

Yeah, I work at a gas station, they do tire work, and if you ask, we usually have tons just lying around, they may even give them to you for free.



#53061 Whats So Special About The Titan?

Posted by Jakethesnake on 21 April 2005 - 12:13 AM in General Nerf

I'm sorry, I meant "power happy"



#53055 Whats So Special About The Titan?

Posted by Jakethesnake on 20 April 2005 - 11:40 PM in General Nerf

Talk about power hungry.



#52489 Fast-action Rifle Writeup And Plans

Posted by Jakethesnake on 14 April 2005 - 01:55 PM in Homemades

If anyone is ordering the springs and/or carbon rod online, please tell me, I would like to order the parts too, then we could split the shipping costs. I'm posting this because I don't have a credit card or paypal to buy online.



#52415 Oregon Nerfers

Posted by Jakethesnake on 13 April 2005 - 03:26 PM in Nerf Wars

I live 35 min. south of salem, soo, that would be perfect for me, heck we could have it at my house if we wanted. But I don't know if there will be enough people interested to drive that far. Any other takers on a war in the Salem area?



#52395 Getting A Wildfire Up To Spec.

Posted by Jakethesnake on 13 April 2005 - 01:46 AM in General Nerf

Cobbers: I finally found those black pegs, if you still want them pm me with your addy and I can mail them to you.



#52394 Oregon Nerfers

Posted by Jakethesnake on 13 April 2005 - 01:44 AM in Nerf Wars

If we could get something going, I'd be interested in getting a war started up, or something along those lines.



#52306 Real Player - Owned

I have, it usually is pretty fast for me, but I've only used it sparingly.



#52305 Fast-action Rifle Writeup And Plans

Posted by Jakethesnake on 11 April 2005 - 11:33 PM in Homemades

Anybody have a rough estimate to how much the supplies will cost to make this beast of a gun?



#52037 Semi-auto 2k Prototype-its A Start

Posted by Jakethesnake on 09 April 2005 - 12:57 AM in Modifications

Someone pioneer interchangeable clips to go with that thing, and it would be kind of a mini powerclip, with a little imagination.



#51807 Grrr At My Jeans.

Posted by Jakethesnake on 06 April 2005 - 11:19 PM in Off Topic

Certain jeans just rub off a little bit of color when they're new. Try washing them a few times, like someone else said, should get rid of the problem.
