  1. Interesting observations when shooting with or without prescription glasses

    The dot is presented as if it is at infinity Your fixed focus scope is likely set to present the reticle at some intermediate distance in order to accommodate a larger range of vision issues Once you put on the glasses for close distance, you no longer can focus at infinity so red dot is blurry.

    Measuring dovetails Can you measure x, h and D for both dovetails? Best accuracy is when D = h If you don't have two of the same pin, just use whatever you have and give both diameters Then I'll need an estimate of from base of dovetail to base of dovetail. I can do the model and plug the...
  3. CT governor wants to ban open carry

    If crime goes down how does the prison industry get money to pay lobbyists and donations?
  4. CT governor wants to ban open carry

    I believe that was one of the two cases and the result was that a witnesses concern and alarm at the sight of a legally carried firearm did not give rise to an offense by the LTC holder absent an alarming action from the carrier.

  6. CT governor wants to ban open carry

    True but there is at least one case that was discussed here on NES of a LTC holder who had his jacket blown by the wind exposing his pistol that was harassed and a second case where a non-resident holder was harassed because a person heard about his firearm during a urology visit (complainant...
  7. Supreme Court - NYSRPA v. Bruen - Megathread

    But those are sanctioned and likely have people with FID/LTCs supervising and transporting the guns (but per the quoted statutes not actually necessary as long as someone can actually define '"competent authority")
  8. CT governor wants to ban open carry

    I know in Mass an incidental exposure is legally not a problem (doesn't mean a rogue cop can't take you for the ride) but I don't know enough about the case law to know if it was Mass courts or the Federal Circuit that decided But Connecticut WILL try to destroy gun owners through both the law...

    a parade rifle != firearm so no need for an exemption
  10. 3D printing

    Until PayPal went insane, I made more in donations (tips) for publishing my designs than actually selling printed parts.
  11. Supreme Court - NYSRPA v. Bruen - Megathread

    True; it is silly, more than that it's F'n hillarious. However, politicians point to those meaningless lines of text to say that their law doesn't infringe because they exempted those who are covered by the 2nd. They also know that not a single (j)ROTC member will ever be given an order or...

    Going with a 0.6mm nozzle and 50% layer height should give you the speed and better wall appearance as long as you aren't printing 0.4mm wide features (but those aren't going to reproduce properly at 75% nozzle height anyhow)

    Remember, he is paid by the government to be around YOUR kids, not the politicians' kids
  14. 3D printing

    I print mostly with 3d Solutech PLA since that's what works for my needs out of the box. For items that need different materials I have TPU, PETG, Nylon and ABS on hand. I also don't normally print at layer heights over 50% of nozzle diameter in order to preserve visual quality and printed...
  15. Supreme Court - NYSRPA v. Bruen - Megathread

    I said "on duty" The legislature put the following in because they know that it will never be authorized so it won't happen and they get to say that it is their to further "the true intent of the 2nd" per their interpretation. As far as carry on base or in public, I don't have any issue with...

    I don't turn the temperature up to get more speed so I'm running temps between 195-205 for PLA. I haven't tried an extrusion test at 240 since bridging and support separation suffer at too high of a temperature.
  17. Supreme Court - NYSRPA v. Bruen - Megathread

    The exemption of on-duty active military is a BS allusion to their insistence that the 2nd applies only to militia. The military is not under state control nor held to state law so the exemption is meaningless
  18. Supreme Court - NYSRPA v. Bruen - Megathread

    Not very timely The timeline for enforcement is 120 days so I don't think we'll see anything from SCOTUS since there is time to go to lower court first.

    The print and measure process gave me good results but didn't play well with PA. The calculated results for input shaping is giving much better results and PA isn't freaking out and causing gaps at layer change. On a corexy printer, klipper really improved the speed/quality even with a 32 bit...

    I can load a bootloader on that old board if you want But I'd you have a 4.2.7 then the best use for the old board is a trash filler.
