Re: weld up a receiver (w/no welding experience)

When you do get your kit, get some steel the same thickness and practice welding and finishing the welds on that,not just flat welds. It will make it a bit easier and you won't be mucking up a good receiver. Get good on the scrap steel first. And good luck! ---bil

Re: WWI Museums - Peronne

for the glass shots-either use a tripod with no flash,or lean camera against some solid object-even the glass.Disable the flash and get a longer exposure.Watch for reflections and move camera to avoid them. the closer you are to the glass,the better. ---bil
