Re: identifying mystery parts?

2 & 3 look similar to the coupler on the A-34 jigsaw, but a bit longer.

Re: Johnsons Paste Wax Fire Starter

JPW isn't available in Canada, so I have been using TreWax, I am guessing it has a harder constancy than the JPW as it tends to break into chunks if the can is dropped.

Re: Best upper and lower guard option for Mark V 500?
