re: Sony A6000 Camera Reviews - TigerTaco
I have one and have no complaints. I like that I can use old manual lenses. I've picked up a number of lenses from pawn shops and ebay for as low as $5. The Sony 55-210 lens takes great pictures at my kids' sporting events. The camera has fast auto focus and frames per second. The next lens I plan t...

re: dSLR camera - TigerTaco
I like that you can buy adapters so that you can use other manufacturer's lenses. I bought an 80's vintage Nikon Series E prime lens on eBay for $45. I received the Fotodiox adapter today, so I tried it out for a bit before it got dark. Worked fine, but it's manual focus and aperture control only. ...

re: dSLR camera - TigerTaco
I recently picked up a Sony A6000 for around $800 with two lenses. I have no complaints. It claims to be one of the fastest auto focus cameras and has taken better than expected photos at my kids' sporting events. I'm a beginner with a camera, so check out the reviews online from people who know ...

re: Building a Brick Oven - Anyone here have one? - TigerTaco
[quote]Thanks TigerTaco! Have you had any of the moisture issues described earlier? Is it under a roof, or just out in the elements? [/quote] My dome is simply multiple layers of stucco with waterproofing additives added during mixing. I admit is isn't the best and a better roof/enclosure would ...

re: Building a Brick Oven - Anyone here have one? - TigerTaco
I built a 42" Forno Bravo Pompeii oven and use it all the time. I sourced all the materials in the Baton Rouge area other than the fire brick. The brand carried by a supplier in New Orleans (Alsey) is superior to the fire brick sold in BR (Butler). I mixed my own high heat mortar. For the mortar...

re: Jon boat repair : Rivets - TigerTaco
I restored a '74 1542 Duracraft and replaced a number of rivets after drilling them out. Nothing to it. It helps to have another set of hands to back up the rivet with a heavy sledge when you peen the end. The end of the rivet easily mushrooms. After I replaced the rivets, I filled the hull to check...

re: Anyone know where to get steel tubing bent? - TigerTaco
I've seen that video. I have wood to build a jig but haven't had the time to build it. A bigger problem is I don't have a work table heavy enough to not move during bending. If the price is right, I'll pay to have it done. ...

re: Anyone own a CZ Rimfire (452 or 455)? - TigerTaco
My kids have a CZ 452 Scout. Out of the ammo I have tried, CCI Green Tag and CCI SV were 5 shots one hole results. I have some other target ammo to try the next time out, but I doubt it can get much better. I was surprised, but M22 shot slightly better than the CCI in my 10/22 with a target barre...
