    bad news

    I found and use a UV curable (sunlight) Super Glue at our local Menards store. It comes on a small red syring looking tube. Being super glue it wicks in around the glass giving a really good seal. Each syringe only contains 2ml, but it only takes a small amount . I should also add that regular Super Glue normally won't work as it dries in the absence of air. The address on the tube is Pacer Technologies Rancho Cucamunga, CA good luck Dale

    bad news

    On the UV lens did you seal the UV glass to the metal ring? The glass is floating in the metal ring with a cir clip holding it in. Without sealing the glass it will leak.

    5 shot dead and Three injured

    second artical in local paper yesterday 11/22/2004 12:59:02 PM Hunting horror (I) Leader-Telegram Staff and news services “Things like that just don’t happen around here,” Olson said. The area has a lot of public land and attracts out-of-towners. “I worry about deer being the cause of problems, because sometimes even neighbors can have fights and arguments over a deer,” he said. Authorities were still working on the crime scene late Sunday night. Roads near the scene were closed to all traffic, including ambulances, as authorities from sheriff’s departments in Sawyer, Rusk and Barron counties were involved in the manhunt. Zeigle said authorities were notified of the shootings shortly after noon, when a member of the hunting party stopped at a gas station in Birchwood while taking one of the victims to the hospital. The caller said simply, “There were five people dead in the woods,” Zeigle said. Deputies were immediately dispatched to the scene and found the bodies in the brush. The injured were taking to hospitals. At that point, authorities started their search for Vang, taking to county roads and the air hoping to find him. Suspect lives in St. Paul The arrested man, Vang, lives in an aging, two-story house on St. Paul’s lower East Side. He and his family apparently moved into the neighborhood earlier this year, said John Black, a lifelong resident of the neighborhood who lives across the street. Black and his wife, Cheryl, said Sunday night that the family kept to themselves, rarely interacting with neighbors. They said they never spoke with the man, but described him as “real clean-cut” and “nicely dressed.” John Black said he believed there were several children living in the home, but added that he didn’t know how many there were or what their relation to Vang might be. “We never had any problems with them,” said Black, 56. “We never heard a peep out of those guys, to be honest with you. We’re floored. What would take a guy to that point?” John Black said he was watching a football game sometime after 3:30 p.m. Sunday when he noticed some commotion outside and saw several unmarked police cars pull up in front of Vang’s house. “They wouldn’t tell us anything,” said Black, who eventually found out what was going on from a TV cameraman. At one point, Black said, police led a woman from the house, shielding her from cameras by covering her face with a blanket. Hmong face friction Hunting is a tradition many Hmong have continued to pursue since resettling here from Laos, though not always smoothly. Some Hmong hunters in the Twin Cities say they have been targets of harassment and intimidation. Some of their white counterparts complain that the former refugees, used to unregulated hunting in their homeland, sometimes fail to comply with modern hunting regulations and wildlife management practices. “A lot of these hunters are people who have a strong tradition in hunting,” said Hmong activist Michael Yang of St. Paul, who joined friends looking for deer on his first hunting trip a few weeks ago. “That was one of the bases of survival back in the old days. You go out there in your farm fields and hunt what you need.” Lee Pao Xiong, a Hmong activist from St. Paul, said he stopped hunting on public lands in Minnesota after an incident several years ago in which he and two friends were hunting for squirrels. Two carloads of white hunters suddenly pulled into the spot where the three were camping and started making harassing comments. Several other Hmong hunters overheard the commotion, and the other hunters left when they realized they were outnumbered. Michael Yang said he hears Hmong hunters talking of discrimination and taunts from other hunters. Hmong hunters have even been forced to take off their clothes at gunpoint, he said. “Definitely, there’s a lot of friction,” Michael Yang said. Other hunters say they have had problems with Hmong hunters they have encountered. Maple Grove hunter Sandy Halvorson said some local hunters complain that Hmong hunters have come onto private property to hunt and don’t understand property rights and bag limits. “There’s a problem with our system,” she said, adding there should perhaps be classes to teach hunting laws and traditions to immigrants trying to obtain a license. “There is a cultural difference between hunting in other countries and hunting in the United States,” she said.

    5 shot dead and Three injured

    another local paper report from yesterday 11/22/2004 12:58:56 PM Hunting horror (I) Tree-stand dispute leads to rampage; man held Leader-Telegram Staff and news services Two surviving victims of the weekend rampage in northwestern Wisconsin were shot from only a few dozen yards away, the surgeon who treated them said today. Dr. Lynn Koob of Lakeview Medical Center in Rice Lake said this morning that Denny Drew and Lauren Hesebeck were shot from about 50 yards away, “obviously” by a high-powered weapon. Koob said the injuries “ranked right up there” with the worst he had seen at the hospital, which occasionally treats gunshot victims. Five people were shot to death and three others wounded in the incident; a deer hunter was awaiting his first court appearance. The 36-year-old accused gunman, Chai Vang, was arrested at about 5:15 p.m. Sunday at the Rusk and Sawyer county line, Sawyer County sheriff’s officials said. Paul Schnell, a spokesman for the St. Paul (Minn.) Police Department, said Vang was from St. Paul. Vang was in the Sawyer County Jail in Hayward. Those killed were Robert Crotteau, 42, of Haugen; Joseph Crotteau, 20, of Haugen; Allan Laski of Haugen; Jessica Willers; and Mark Roidt, 28, of Rice Lake. Those injured were: Terry Willers, 47, of Rice Lake; Denny Drew, 55, of Rice Lake; and Lauren Hesebeck of Rice Lake. Two hunters were returning to their cabin on private land in Sawyer County when they saw the suspect in one of their tree stands before noon Sunday, County Chief Deputy Tim Zeigle said. A confrontation and shooting followed. It’s not known who shot first, Zeigle said. Both men were wounded, and one of them radioed to the cabin a quarter mile away. Two or three hunters responded and were killed, he said. About 20 shots were fired, but it’s unclear who shot them, he said. There was only one gun among the hunters’ group, Zeigle said. Zeigle said the suspect was “chasing after them and killing them,” with a SKS 7.62 caliber semiautomatic, a common hunting weapon. The dead included four males, including a teenage boy, and a woman, Zeigle said. A father and son were among them, he said. Some of the victims were shot more than once. All five were dead when officers arrived to the area near the town of Meteor in southwestern Sawyer County, he said. “They are well-known people in the Rice Lake community,” Zeigle said. Investigators found two bodies next to each other, with a third 50 yards away, the fourth 75 yards from the third and the final body 100 yards from the fourth, Zeigle said. “He was picking them off,” Zeigle said. “He was chasing after them and killing them.” Two young people who stayed in the cabin emerged safely after the shootings. “It’s absolutely nuts. Why? Over sitting in a tree stand?” Zeigle said. The suspect, who did not have a compass, got lost in the woods, and two hunters, not knowing about the shootings, helped him find his way out, Zeigle said. When he emerged, a Department of Natural Resources officer recognized the deer license on his back, given to police by a victim, Zeigle said. The man was out of bullets, Zeigle said. He did not expect him to be charged today. One of the victims, Terry Willers, 47, was at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Marshfield in stable condition with neck and shoulder injuries. Denny Drew and Lauren Hesebeck were taken to Lakeview, said Jennifer Greshowak, director of community relations. Drew was in critical condition with a wound to the abdomen and Hesebeck was in stable condition with shoulder and arm injuries this morning, Dr. Koob. Koob said he concluded the weapons were high powered due to the amount of tissue damage. He said he knew the victims and their families, but “emotions take a back seat when you’re in the operating room. After we’re done with the surgery, the emotions kind of catch up to you sometimes.” Hesebeck’s wife, Theresa Hesebeck, who also is Drew’s sister, said Sunday night that she learned about the shootings shortly after leaving church, where she had “prayed for a safe hunt.” Drew was shot in the stomach. The bullet went in one side and out the other, family members said. They added that Lauren Hesebeck was shot in the arm and the bullet exited through his back. The Drew and Hesebeck family said in a statement Sunday that they “certainly appreciate the thoughts and prayer of this close-knit community and encourage you to think and pray for the other families involved.” The shootings happened in the town of Meteor in southwestern Sawyer County, between Birchwood and Exeland. Wisconsin’s statewide deer gun hunting season started Saturday and lasts for nine days. Bill Wagner, 72, of Oshkosh, was about two miles away near Deer Lake with a party of about 20 other hunters. After they got word of a shooting, he and others went to round up the rest of the party. He said they heard sirens, planes and helicopters and noticed the surrounding roads blocked off. It took about three hours to round up the other hunters, who were up to four miles apart, Wagner said. Dale Olson, chairman of the 170-resident town of Meteor, said deputies were driving up and down the roads using loudspeakers to alert hunters to get out of the woods.

    Just a quick question are you using a flash gasket on the p32? The flash profile seems to be very rectangular kind of the same shape as the cut out in the P32 flash gasket Mathews
