Re: Bayonets

My "free" bayonet is called by a different number at Atlanta Cutlery. But...wow...look at the "closeout" price. Who would have thought it?

Re: THE FIRST WORLD WAR as reported in the daily news

Here's a second post today since this struck me as reflective of modern news. One New York paper had an editor that went off his nut and killed his wife and left a note that he was going to kill himself. It was on the front page of a rival New York newspaper. However the editor story didn't make the...

Re: Bayonets

Interesting post, Peter. Reminded me of a bayonet I got with an order from, I think, Century some years ago. It was free with whatever it was I ordered that had no relationship to the knife. And... it doesn't fit any rifle I own. It was made by the Spanish for their CETME Model C military rifle. If ...

Re: Tool for tinkering with old cameras.. and some other things

That's pretty neat. Had a discussion on a camera repair page. They made fun of my Chinese tools. Bet they wouldn't make fun of those tools...if the points would go into the tool holes on a camera.

That's really sharp with apparent excellent color replication. I don't think any camera, at any price or configuration, could have done better. Good shot.

I got the standard Lens Spanner Wrench Repair Tool with the parallel points on one end and equally parallel straight edges on the other.

How unpatriotic can you get? A baseball Worlds Series pay players strike. Now days players make something like a third of a million each for playing in a World Series beyond their already fat contract pay checks.

America loves to sacrifice ...particularly when it comes to sin. Beer is sin of course. America has that old Pilgrim spirit....even when it puts a shuts down taxes collected for the war they seem to be sacrificing for.

Re: Got this road map from 1948

It's in as new shape. Folds up neat.But I made a mistake on the year when I first posted it. It's 1948,not 38. Has the state of Alabama on one side and the whole South East on the other. And not an interstate on it.

It's a Gulf Oil gas station give away map. Back in the day of two lane main highways, before interstate highways were a normal thing, gas stations gave away these travel maps. Made a mistake on the year when I first posted this. Posted ast 1938 instead of 1948. cover.jpg maptext.jpg small.jpg
