Changing the barrel on an Airsoft rifle to make it longer or tighter
will improve accuracy. Poor quality BBs will jam in a tight barrel,
however. Most automatic electric guns (AEG) come with a default stock
of 6.08 mm diameter. Barrels come as tight as 6.01 mm to 6.05 mm. Some
manufacturers make a 6.04 mm barrel with a special coating, which
increases the feet per second (FPS) by up to 10 times, or
more.Difficulty:ModerateInstructions Things You'll Need

for their junks. The U.S. military used tung oil to coat military
parts during World War II. In addition to being water resistant, tung
oil resists many alkalis and acids as well. Tung oil remains flexible
over time and accommodates the continuous expansion and contraction of
wood surfaces. It also maintains its color while other oils like
linseed oil darken over time. Pure Polymerized Tung OilPure
polymerized tung oil is the best kind for oak refinishing. Wod looses

they can cut many materials at speeds up to 500 inches per minute.
They've helped to reduce costs and improve speed of manufacturing in
many different applications. TextilesSheets of fabric for clothing
can be cut by laser. Lower-power lasers, under 100 watts, can cut
these softer materials.
Sheet MetalCutting metal by laser creates
parts with good tolerances. Some metals, besides being hard and dense,
