NJ Prepared is a new section dedicated to those who are interested in practical prepping - UNRELATED TO FIREARMS . We are not looking for political discussions or tin foil hat conspiracy's. This is a place to share what knowledge you have and exchange information with fellow members who wish to learn what it takes to get through a disaster. Whether natural or man made. Gear reviews, Food Storage, First Aid etc... This section will hopefully help teach us the skills and knowledge needed to keep yourself and your family safe during times of distress in the state or country.
No down side to LP/NG imo. First time I didn't have to go outside in the pouring rain to add gas to the gen. was all worth it to me. LP of course is a bit different but the tank swap is pretty quick compared to opening up the generators tank and trying to add gas in the dead of night. Note here...Top off your tank before the sun goes down. Even if it means getting soaked. Most people (at least us) did turn off the gen before we went to bed. You can top it off in the morning. Also don't ever let it run out of fuel. The power surges will reek havoc on both your genset and everything it's trying to keep running.
Speaking of rain...I bought one of these to keep mine relatively dry in the rain. Pretty nice cover if you don't have someplace to put your genset while it's raining. If anyone decides to get one hit me up for some assembly tips.
I use the Real Avid Master Armorer's tool kit. its pricey at $250 but drops down to $199 occassionally. Trust me after you build one, it won't be the last and it will be good investment in the long run.
My first build was with a regular hammer and cheap punch pin set from Harbor Freight.
Thanks for the tip. Does anyone have a recommendation on an all in one tool kit for building the gun? ( The adapter for the vice to hold the receiver, punch, and some of the small tools to deal with the springs/pins, etc.)
