I recently purchased a Dowelmax
Classic doweling jig and totally stoked with the quality and
performance of their product. I reviewed many similar products to join
wood together and this one is the "Cadillac" for sure. Click on the picture
logo to take you direct to their ordering page and for additional product information.
I have used their products for a decade or more making various types of smoked
sausages and very satisfied. Check out my Short Stories
page, Sausage Making and Venison Chop Shop for a view of some of their
equipment in use.
Militec-1 protects metal surfaces with a constant impregnated molecular
bond of synthetic-based hydrocarbon derivatives which will not change any
tolerances inside or outside of weapons. Militec-1 works within the
molecular structure and micropores of metal and non-metallic surfaces of
weapons. Benefits of Militec-1: helps prevent jamming, reduces bore
wear, provides excellent rust protection, reduces corrosion, carbon and lead
build-up and highly concentrated and long-lasting.
I use this product on my personal weapons and as a Certified Armorer for
the NCDOC, use Militec-1 on all our weapons at a medium custody correctional
"Take care of your weapon and it will take care of you."
I use this multi-purpose lube for leather products, key and lock control,
automotive applications, weapons exterior and mixed with water as a "moose type
milk" for cleaning black powder firearms since it emulsifies with water and is

Above pix of a state of the art router table fence manufactured by Pat Warner at
www.patwarner.com who is a top guru when
it comes to precision routing and drilling. He has instructional material
for sale to help anyone become more proficient and productive using his methods
and techniques for the router. Many of my wood working fixtures and jigs
for my turkey call making leads back to some of his products. I met Pat
Warner at his shop in Escondido, California while visiting our son and his
family back in 2008 and very impressed with his hands on knowledge of precision
routing. I highly recommend his products!
Joe Estridge has been doing Residential and Commercial Locksmith services for
decades and a pleasure to do business with him. I have been using his
service as one of my duties as Key and Lock Control Office with the NC Dept. of
Correction for over 30 years. Note: Joe passed away in 2011
and the business is run by his son-in-law Rodney Sikes and his daughter Ashley.
Rodney has been in very bad health the past year and unable to keep the business
going at this time.
UPDATE: Rodney Sikes died on November 18, 2015 from cancer.
The business is closed.
I am currently referring locksmith services to Justin Burr. He worked
with the Department of Correction for a few years and has excellent character.
I have owned many high quality pot friction calls to go into my turkey hunting arsenal along
with my own custom made box calls and after receiving a couple of Derby City
Calls from Jeff Sullivan, their Magnum aluminum over glass call is by far the
best looking and sounding pot friction call that I have ever owned. It is the
easiest call to "play" and with their 500 year old hard maple wood
OLD GROWTH STRIKER, it is a combination that is supreme.
The workmanship far exceeds any production pot friction call that I have every owned.
The call base has a unique and novel shape (patent pending) that is not only
beautiful but is ergonomically shaped to fit the hand and keep the call in
position while using the striker to create clucks, purrs, yelps and cuts that
will certainly bring that ole elusive Long Beard in for the harvest.

Knapp Shoes have been manufactured in the USA since 1921. I have used

periods of time. They are still manufactured here in the USA and worth
every dollar paid for them. Click on Logo for a link to their website to

In 2014, I
purchased a Hunter Safety System Hybrid model safety harness and their lifeline
which is the best safety equipment I have ever purchased for my hunting needs. I have used
some of those cheap
"Rube Goldberg" contraptions that
come with ladder stands that one of my hunting friends gave me, but it takes an
engineering degree to figure out how to put them one. I can't say enough
good things about HSS products and highly recommend them. Safety has to be
your number one priority in my humble opinion and HSS will get you there without
compromising your personal safety and welfare, if you follow their instructions!

My bride and myself are members of the
Wadesboro Church of God. My
Della Coley was one of the founding members of the Wadesboro Church of God and
our parents were members also. They lead us in the right direction, however
it is easy to be led astray by the works of Satin if one drops his or her guard
and yields to the wicked darts of Satin.
Thanks to our Lord Jesus Christ who died on the cross for our sins.
Salvation and Deliverance is available to anyone who will accept him.
