    This is not exactly a survivalist question although it has relevance to the subject. It's something that's bugged me ever since it happened. And I’m almost embarrassed to admit how long ago it happened, but here goes. This is in the 1970s, before cars become totally computerized. My car broke...

    I saw someone on a video have a small Glue stick in their EDC pack and I thought, "Thought could serve a purpose." but didn't really give it much thought. Then I saw someone mention it on here, but not elaborate. Could you guys give some rolling ideas of what to do with a Glue stick for a hot...

    Hello! I bought a truck camper. Good price, but needs a lot of work!! One major problem not seen till support brackets removed is a considerable sag in the cab-over sleep area. Upon further inspection found that the front wall (under the sleep area that sits against truck cab) is rotten along...

    So I was attempting to replace the stock on my Arsenal SGL 21 with an East German wire folder and I found the rear trunnion's screw was so tight that I ended up stripping it, unable to remove the original stock.

    I know most people only have one or two sets of glasses at any time. That's not a very good idea if TSHTF. I destroy, break, lose glasses so frequently that I recently bought 5 pairs of prescription glasses for under $50. Luckily my vision seems to be staying the same so I would be good for a...
  6. DIY - Do It Yourself
    I´ve been thinking about long term maintenance plans, and some of the most easy to stash spare parts you´ll find are bearings. Nowadays they´re dirt cheap, easy to find, don´t have a defined shelf life, and your machinery won´t work efficiently (or maybe won´t work at all) if these parts have...

    I went shooting with some people last week on a snow covered farm in the sticks. While my brother shot some hollow point rounds into a frozen lake, I guess a little pin must have rattled loose and the rifle jammed. See attached image to see exact location of the pin I took the rifle apart to...

    I love my Tevas, I wear them every day. My last pair lasted more than 10 years. But I can't have had my new pair for more than one or two years, and I just found a big crack in the bottom of one of them, across the part where the foot bends. (They're also worn down quite a bit in that place.. it...
