  1. Shooting position is not like looking down a scope , as long as you keep the rifle steady ,just look at the screen, stock length ont an issue on this one as its a grs , fully adjustable, handy if using a pard 007 , or getting perfect cheek weld & position on a day scope
  2. On & off the rifle, what we were using about 15 years ago , just uprated the I.r , tried it the other night, conditions good , you could easily shoot at 300yds if yo wanted to with it , it's a better picture than the pard , not a drone ! Not every ones cup of tea , but comfortable to shoot with, cheapish & easily fixable, good back up unit Side view , it actually looks & feels better on the rifle
  3. It's one of Daves boxes , they were all pretty generic , just different takes on dsa & internals people used ,dave used 18650 cells ,this one uses 12v lithium, also uses a 12v buck driver for the I.r, instead of 3 modes ,it's fully dimmable, if you want to kill the I.r , big difference in performance is the vscel diode& cctv lens , far better than the old osram & t38/50 aspheric lens
  4. Pcb board & heatsinking! Sorry its a predictive txt thing
  5. The lens housing for the lens it's fully adjustable so can achieve perfect I.r , I was out by under 2mm , but adjusted works spot on , vscel & pub sits on a solid pill so really good heating...
  6. Many moons ago before commercial units where they are now today, used to tinker with your own , I've gone through boxes of stuff I had, revised a screen set up , not to everyone's taste but it works well & cheap for its performance level! The dsa is a cobra merlin, Marky delrin housing for an e700 camera/16mm lens , the main body is a somebloke box, 5 inch screen , 12v lithium battery, dimmer,on/off ,1 amp buck driver ,run through a filter to stop any signal interface on the screen, the I.r is a vscel 850 diode ,I reflowed onto a golden dragon pub, it sits in a custom housing on a solid pill , fitted with a 25mm cctv lens , give better performance than the yukon & a lot lighter! It works really well on a scope, better image than a pard , I fitted it on a delta titanium 4-30 x50 ,easily mag past 20 , very shootable past 300yds or down to 20yds ! Not every one's cuppa, but it's cheap ,works ,easily fixable, makes a good back up unit. 20220503_143743.heic 20220503_143743.heic
  7. Cheers gents this is how it starts off in life , bit of work involved even before bending...
  8. To be honest be a lot of answers, after final shaping, usually scrape with a new stanly blade , sand to 240 , then wet & dry through to 1200 , put it on a mop with a bit of polishing soap , shows up all the faults , start again, till happy, found autoglym car polish on the mop & cherry blossom black works well to get a good shine....
  9. Havnt made anything in buffalo for awhile, these two are for someone who's getting married in a few weeks, as gifts , ones on hazel, bronze/copper spacer other is on a stripped holly ,hopefully finished by the end of the week...
  10. Cheers , would say they didn't have a hard life , maybe I've been unlucky , when googled was a common fault , repaired one, its where the copper wire comes off the coil & attaches to motor body if that makes sense....
  11. Cheers , looking at wecher flexi shaft set up in the future, I've gone through 3 dremmels in the past, the copper snaps in the motor, common problem, fixed but gone again, so off dremmels! Will see ....
  12. Had another go a phesant head , one piece of American walnut , on hazel shank , now I wish I hadn't painted it ! I pyrography the feathers & details in looked really good , should of just oiled it up & left it alone, paint has killed the feather patterning ,oh well you live & learn ! Definitely investing in some carving gear next month!
