The AR series including the diversions off into manufacturing

Don’t know yet if they’re in a good order, they may or may not be. I think this is all of them.
This was… five years back? I had just purchased and built my very first AR and was still learning as I went.

I see there are a comment or two from Farmer Frank and Kees Kennis. G-d rest their souls. i miss those crazy, wonderful old men.

I’ve learned a lot more now, and I know that to the pros all this stuff is just common sense, but I had fun looking at it all through the eyes of a rank novice, and it filled me with admiration for Eugene.
The manufacturing stuff is still the same, the laws of physics are the laws of physics.

Ever since

tolerance stack and accuracy

CNC machining


Off the processes for a while


Putting it together

A word about the lower

The Package

It has been the case for a long time

That the fall and winter season fills me with a melancholy.

This year, somehow, has been different. I don’t know why, maybe I’m just too damned busy to be depressed. Still, I’m rather more hopeful this season than I have been in seasons past. It seems the world is a little friendlier, despite the loss of some people I hated losing, and a lot of other issues I’ve had. But I’m here, and I am surprised to be here, and I’ll take it.
