    If you leave the powder drop on the saw and turn it on, there's no need for a powder displacement tool. It'll also stay "PG" rated.;)

    Headspace and timing gage for an M2.

    I wear one around my neck everyday!!

    when I first read the title of this post I said heck, I can top all... until I read the one about the vibrator. Funny thing... I have the motor and battery holder out of the same type of device for almost the same reason. Too funny. And.. it does work!!

    Made this little "tool" when I first started loading in 1981(?) to poke in the flash
    hole and knock any media out.
    Remnant of a brazing rod, and piece of
    broom (or mop?) handle.
    I couldn't even guess at how many cases
    I've poked this doo dad into

    Right now? While I'm at work? I left the reloading stool with my RCBS mounted on it in the TV room so, probably a cat. Either the big lazy gray Tom or the skinny hyper Maine Coon.

    Better question: What isn't odd on that bench?

    A Japanese Plinko game that was hanging on the basement wall when I bought the house 18 years ago.

    It could be used for a shank I guess as
    could most anything, but I almost always
    have an Officers 45 at hand that would
    work better than a sticker for the rough
    work

    A live 20mm Oerlikon cartridge my Dad brought it back after WWII. Also a 50 cal he brought back but that's not really odd.

    I don’t have anything too strange.
    Just a 50 caliber bullet that was caught in an oak chunk.
    The other logs were split in half, but this little one went hurling across the field with its prize contained inside.:)

    There’s some recovered bullets and some inert rounds for a 45 and a 30-06. Two 308s and a 7 Mag from a friend. A bisected 223, just normal stuff.

    My closet is too small to keep anything cool in it. But the white walls and minimal decor keep me from being distracted while brassing.

    That, in itself, is strange for me. The rest of the property is awash in contraption and invention.

    I have a paddle pontoon torn down in the shop for a pedal-powered prop retrofitting.
    Because, that seemed like a good thing to do...:confused:

    I think you are right. Looks like a groundhog skull.

    I think you're right. Definitely a member of the rodent family, probably a marmot, but certainly not a lagomorph or marsupial.

    For some reason my father in law had it, don't know why he was a priest and never in the service after he passed my wife brought it home.
