    Good tip! I’ve never used a riveter before.

    What the hell do they teach you in the Navy?

    I thought all sailors can rivet!

    I do computers! That’s how I was able to make such a beautiful cad drawing last night for your chainsaw holster.

    Love my vacuum sealer!

    Last year's AAOA meet-up, I pre-cooked, pre-packed and vacuum-sealed my Mexican feast: Pork Carnitas, Beans and Rice.

    Reduces camp meal prep effort and post-meal cleanup.

    Added my table today! I didn’t add the wire cable yet. I don’t have crimpers, and attempted to use channel locks. That failed so miserably, so @Mobtown Offroad has some extra material he’ll bring this weekend and we’ll knock it out.

    Everything else is really solid. I’m now a huge fan of rivets!!

    Is that the ferrule that crimps aircraft cable to form a loop? I wanna try that for my @Chux limb riser mod. I have a 10 ton hydraulic electrical crimper (yellow and black, of course) will that work?

    This is the kind of crimp I was working with. I’m not sure what kind of crimper it calls for.

    Hmm. There’s probably a special crimper for that. The 10 ton hydraulic electrical crimper will probably do it, but may not be pretty.

    Yeah I saw that. So ridiculous IMO, since it had nothing to do with TW.

    It’d probably break it. I managed to break my crimp with just channel locks.
