      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

"ED"'s Activity

  1. "ED" added a topic in On The Workbench   

    Battery cables, plug wires, radiator overflow lines, metal fuel line
    All of these materials are used to tie flies.
    Equipment: Micro-tubing, small wire or ultra wire, head cement or epoxy,needle, portable fire(lighter), paint of your choice, lead wire. This is my first thread, so I am open to suggestion and thanks for looking.

    1. Insert small wire into microtubing, cut to size and paint.
    2. Use needle to "melt" a hole into piece you are working on and insert tubing.
    3. use head cement to glue in place and presto!

    The needle can be cut and used as fuel line. it is also bendable and rigid. Hope this helps.
    Try and be easy with my work! Havent built since I was a kid! Got back into it after Iraq. God bless.

    the wire gives rigidity to the tubing, allowing you to shape the subject to you liking and keeps it where you want it.
