Medusa Properties by medusaproperties.comIf you are looking for shiny new pennies, you’ll have to live in a 400 unit property and park in a parking garage. This may seem like the same thing to a layman but if you have ever sunk your teeth into a 100 yr old building, you understand the difference. So many landlords buy these great old buildings and “remodel” the history and charm right out of them. In any creative endeavor you are only as good as your crew (a blessing and a curse). They cut holes in my (new) roof about 3x larger than they needed to be–then never even bothered to flash or foam up those holes (big enough to put your arm through). Meaning that 51% of the block and contol the the property (and property values) of the other 49%. I was not notified of the application nor allowed to vote on it. So, currently the structure is basically just a brick shell, with interior framing and a roof (that leaks)… I bought the property the building had been owned by the same family since it was built in the late 1940s. Fortunately for me she had no interest in restoring the building. My goal was to make it the best house on the street (at that time)… Since then there has been quite a bit of new construction and some other renovations on the block / adjacent blocks.

For me the trade-offs have always been worth it: aged wood floors, wavy window glass, rich soil under your feet. Others are better suited for shiny new econobox apartment living with carpet, vinyl, and plastic. The entire street used to have many similar properties on it; all but this one have been torn down over the years. I just did what needed to be done–and used materials and processes that would last a lifetime. The two upper units are all hardwood floors with nice private decks off the kitchen (in the back). Two closets in the back bedroom with double hanging in both.

Epoxy Countertops Houston Tx | Duration 1 Minutes 14 Seconds The wisest approach to getting started in handloading is to learn from an experienced handloader who has no bad habits. Each handloader assumes the responsibility of safe reloading practices and accepts the risk for failure to apply good judgment and knowledge. Understand what you are doing and why it must be done in a specific way. Never smoke while handloading or near combustibles and explosives. Keep everything locked up and out of the reach of small children. Never try to dislodge a loaded cartridge that has become stuck in the chamber by impacting it with a cleaning rod. Start loading with the minimum powder charge given for your cartridge. Excess pressures caused by excessive loads could severely damage a firearm and cause serious injury or death. Never attempt to disassemble a cartridge unless you are absolutely sure the bullet non-explosive or non-incendiary. It burns with much greater energy and pressure than blackpowder. If you throw or measure powder charges by volume, check-weigh the charges every time you begin loading, occasionally during loading and when you finish.After charging cases with powder, check each and every case before seating a bullet. The best method to do this is to use a loading block so that all cases are together and all can be visually compared to ensure that they contain the same amount of powder. Have only one kind of powder on the loading bench at a time. Clean up spilled powder with brush and dust pan; do not use a vacuum cleaner because fire or explosion may result. Handle lead bullets or lead shot only in a well ventilated area. Hot lead on skin takes a long time to cool — severe burns will invariably result.

Seating depth of the bullet is extremely important in handgun loads. Accumulation of lead or grease in the bullet seating tool may force the bullet in too far. Observe the powder level of cases placed in the loading tray. Take care to operate progressive loaders as the manufacturer recommends. Don’t use a shell to catch the residue when cleaning out the powder train. Instead, it makes use of an anvil formed in the case itself. An electronic device used to measure the weight of powder in grains or grams. The term itself is a relative one based on a comparison with other powders. A bullet with a diameter of. 308 inches is called 30 caliber (not. 30 caliber). These grooves, usually one to a bullet, provide the best means of securely crimping the case mouth into the bullet. Metallic cases stretch after extensive reloading and firing because the brass flows forward. Handloading should be approached with the same degree of caution as an experimental science.I recommend that handloaders always begin load development only by reference to a reputable reloading manual. Never handload when under the influence of alcohol or drugs (legal or illegal). Don’t substitute components for those listed in your manual. When using an inertial bullet puller, use short, light taps instead of a single heavy blow. Weigh the powder charge in at least 10% of your loads to make sure you are dropping the proper amount of powder. Look for the proper amount of powder and also ensure that there actually is powder in every case. A double charge of a fast burning pistol powder may not fully fill the case, so look carefully! Empty the powder measure back into the original powder container when through with a handloading session. Wrap several towels around the die in case it detonates, then slowly ease it out with your reloading press. High temperature, such as in a summer attic, causes them to deteriorate. This is no activity for children — not even to watch! Wear eye protection and heavy clothing including leather gloves, a heavy apron, heavy jeans, and high-top leather boots. The smoke and fumes from fluxing also caries dangerous lead fumes. The melting pot must have a steady base — a lap full of hot lead would surely take all the fun out of casting and handloading. If you are using a single stage press, do each step to the lot you are reloading before moving on to the next step. Handgun powders must burn very quickly because of the short barrel. Check the overall length of the cartridge to be sure the bullet is seated properly. If the bullet isn’t seated deeply enough, it may engage the lands of the barrel when loaded. If you cast your own bullets, remember their hardness, diameter and lubrication affect the ballistics.

The blow from the firing pin crushes the priming mixture against the anvil causing ignition. Represents the projectiles ability to overcome air resistance in flight. A groove (or grooves) cut around the circumference of a bullet or case. In a case, the cannelure is used as a stop for an inserted bullet.

The shelves are well machined, assembled easily and nicely took our finish without much preparation. They have made a real difference in how accessible my pots and pans are in a very inefficiently laid out old kitchen.

Caution when screwing bottom onto the assembled sides to not get too far from edge or screw will come on the good side.They say they are unfinished but the bottom of the shelf is a smooth white laminate that will be easy to keep clean. It’s so much better than having to practically crawl into a floor cabinet to get to what’s at the back. Nothing special needed but a good saw for square cuts is a definite plus. I do have the saws needed to cut it down which made as simple as possible. In my opening the shelf should have been made 1/2″ smaller than the opening not 1″. I set up my portable tablesaw and cut the fronts, backs and bottoms all the same width as the directions showed. The trays went together beautifully and they installed into the cabinet easy. If your cabinet back won’t hold a screw you need to use a strip of plywood or something as a secondary back to ensure the sockets will stay put. It was a chore to use any of the items on the bottom shelf of the lower cabinets. The slide out shelves arrived in good time and my husband said the measurements were right on the money. Now we are using pots and pans that had been hidden from view. My only criticism is the directions were a bit vague and confusing but after carefully studying it all was ok.
