Anyone ever seen one of these in the flesh before? Intriguing but man, what a hassle it must be with loading and cleaning. https://www.armslist.com/posts/12990649/clarksville-rifles-for-sale--chiappa-multiple-caliber-survival-rifle



Oh hey, that is in my neck of the woods.

Even if you don't clean with it, get some Hoppe's just to huff it.

(Do not actually huff Hoppe's.)

(It will happen anyway against your better judgement. I think that Hoppe's huffin' is like 70% of why gun owners are stupid.)

I think for a while hoppe's made a car air freshener

This Harbor Freight brake bleeder pump will let you manually seal FoodSaver canisters or, if you have the adapter, mason jars.
This is super handy if you don't want to bust out the vacuum sealer or need to seal a jar or canister quietly to avoid waking someone.

Generally useful:
I wish I'd known about nibblers earlier.
I've only used a manual one, but I will definitely be getting a pneumatic one when I have a place to set up a proper workshop.
Definitely worth trying out if you work with sheet metals at all.

A bit more specialized but useful:
There are depannelizing tools for pannelized PCBs that are basically tiny nibblers which are designed for copper and fiberglass instead of steel.
I wish I'd known about those instead of blunting/bending edge cutters.

Hyper-specialized but cool AF:
Monochrometers.
I rescued a diffraction grating monochrometer from a dumpster because someone who had no idea what it was was going to throw it out because it was old.
White light goes in, and a narrow band of wavelengths specified with a dial and an aperture comes out.


I just used a newly discovered invention that is a nibbler for hardi board siding, did a whole house last summer, no dust at all
