    I bought a ruger pellet gun with iron sights and a scope to teach my girls to shoot. Need to sight the scope first and figure out BZO.

    A rest, and yours is nice BTW, comes in very handy for working up loads and sighting in etc whether you use iron sights or a scope. And, they are a great help regardless of a person's shooting ability.

    25 years ago I made this mailbox post from 3 clapped out sets of chains and sprockets from my '75 Z1B Kawasaki.

    I've had to replace the box several times but, the "post' is hanging in there. Funny , because when i put it up I had several people say it wouldn't hold up to the wind.

    First attempt at a prosthetic... Saved this little guy from the cats a few months ago. He had a broken wing and leg. He's getting better- can fly but doesnt like to go very high or far yet. He hobbles around though because of the way his leg is twisted. Made a foot out of two foam stars and some twist ties. He can move a LOT faster on the ground with it on, but doesn't like it much... Probably more hassle than its worth but I had to give it a try.

    My flower pot smoker: not something I "made" but assembled. Mine is charcoal and electric capable. I added a side door for fire tending so i don't have to open the top. It works pretty well, but I'm still sorting it out. It holds heat pretty well and is plenty big. What you don't see is the cast iron wood box I sit on top of the coals or the electric hot plate. I had to tweak the hot plate's high temp spring to allow it to get hotter, so that now it won't turn completely off....
    Future changes will include a PID controller for set and forget type electric smoking.

    I used a 1/16" masonry wheel in a 4 1/2" Mikita side grinder. Worked good, a little more gap than I'd like, but I'll seal the gaps eventually, - not much is lost around the door gap. Of course, right after cutting the door out, I dropped the damn thing on the ground, making three pieces from one. I had to epoxy the thing back together.....

    Oh yeah, I used a 1/8" masonry drill for hinge screw holes and for the candy thermometer to stick through the top.

    My heat deflector/drip catcher is a planter saucer, drilled around the edges and safety wired to hang below the grill pan (which is a Webber 18" ).

    Not thing, open for air. May even need more for using charcoal -time will tell. Plan to add a damper too. Rock over the top hole - high tech solution!
