    UNIT SEVEN - Research (I NEED HELP!) ((WITH RESEARCH YOU WANKERS!!!))

    I can't even remeber all the questions I had but I'll meander

    Answers and links to info appreciated



    1. Is saliva anticoagulant

    2. What are the properties for the ideal bullet. Why are they usually soft metals like lead and copper? Deformation?

    3. What is a cool middling sized straight truck? Something with a 12 foot or so flatbed on the back. Fairly high off the ground but not bulky. Preferebly a cab over design. Massive engine.

    4. Who the hell on Ck5 had that custom flat backed reviever shotgun he cut down to 18.5"? Looked like a savage 720? I want pics.

    5. What's the most rediculously strong commonly available metal available. Price is no concern but it can't be rare.

    6. What are some common bullpup rifles or shotguns. Originally or converted,

    7. Someone explain the electric equivilant of hydraulic rams to me

    8. What's the hardest commonly available wood? Again, price is no matter, but it has to be available.

    9. What is the best tool steel? For knives and such.

    10. Explain the properties of tool grade ceramics. For knives and such.

    11. Anyone own a long slide 1911?

    12. Anyone know anything about old army revolvers?

    13. List for me classic, rare, or off the wall guitars. Bass and normal.



    Uhmmmmm that's all for now......

    If you want something you can walk into the local steel yard and pickup your probably just going to grab low carbon steel. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steel
    also look at this:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Damascus_steel

    Most that I have seen are an electric motor driving a gear box that turns a ball screw to extend the ram. Much easier to run an electric hydraulic pump and real hydraulic ram. The electric rams are also not as powerful and much larger than the basic hydraulic ram.

    3. With the COE, I was thinking more like a import truck

    5. No cool alloys? I meant available in that it doesnt take a million years and a tech lab to make it

    7. This is more of a small robotics applications, fake arm and such

    1. i think it is to a certain extent. i mean, it does eventually dissolve food...

    2. very heavy, very soft, and moves at a high rate of speed. lots of inertia and soft metals expand and make big holes.

    3. i think the first truck on classiccoe.com is pretty badass.

    4. no idea

    5. probably some sort of carbon steel or a titanium alloy

    6. errr... FN P90, FAMAS, SA80, oh, and whats that prototype US assault rifle with the grenede launcher and gadgets all integrated in? OICW or something? :dunno:

    7. actuators. i think they work with a worm gear/motor setup. maybe some have some kinda cool magnetic drive system?

    8. oak is pretty dense

    9. couldn't tell ya

    10. dunno, but keep me posted, i've been kinda curious about this

    11. negatory, i'm not 21 yet

    12. what do you want to know?

    13. les paul studio, telecaster, gibson SG :dunno:

    2. Lead for mass due to density and copper for shell strength and cutting ability.

    3. I was thinking something like a Unimog, not sure on the massive engine though.

    5. Titanium

    7. Electronic Linear Actuator

    8. Hardest commonly available in the U.S. is Hickory

    9. Steel for knives, Damascus

    Saliva is not an anti-coagulant.


    Oak and hickory are good hardwoods.

    The Brits use a bullpup for their issue rifle, the SA-80. Pretty cool weapon.

    Check out Columbia River Knife and Tool (CRKT) for tool steel info and uses

    The Ideal bullet would be one that would expand to about twice it's diameter on impact, but retain 100% of it's mass as it travels through the intended target in order to break bones and such. Many of the premium rifle bullets nowadays ALMOST do this. Nosler Partitions, Speer Grand Slams, The barnes X-bullets are 100% copper, lots of good ones out there. The lead is soft enough to deform, making the bullet expand, transferring maximum energy to the target. There are a few good books out there that talk about internal ballistics, which is what a bullet does after it hits a target. Bullets are clad in copper because it is a softer metal than the steel bore, and therefore less likely to causee excessive wear to the bore.

    Hey buddy, I can't answer all your questions, but maybe I can help with some of them. #2- depends on application: long range=ballistic coefficient, hunting=penetration and expansion, target shooting=repeatable accuracy.#5- titanium comes to mind. #8-hickory, teak, maple. When I was in the Phillipines, the locals made some excellent knives from auto leaf springs, held an edge well and very resistant to edge chipping.#12- which ones-.45LC, .38S&W,.38-200,.45acp or the cap and ball ones?
