You need to save after you beat the game, then load up that save spot. It will be like starting a new game but with all your old equipment. After you reach MK2 you will have everything that you unlocked. :)
What kind of paint should I use to refinish a aluminum carousel horse?
We refinish furniture, mostly. We use professional equipment and products (spray guns, compressors, mostly pre cat laquer, conversion varnish, ect.) Now out of the blue we have this aluminum carousel horse to re-do for some clients. Any one have any tips and or advice for this type of application? Thanks!

After painting aluminum for 30 years, I can tell you that the only thing tougher to get paint to stick to is glass. Everything with aluminum depends on the primer. You probably can't get strontium chromate because it is carcinogenic. You will probably have to use zinc chromate. Either primer will be mixed with an acid, usually phosphoric acid.
If you can find a chrome conversion coating called Alodine, it has an excellent performance record.
The simple way to do this is to find a local aircraft maintenance facility to put on a primer and a base coat. You have to put a base coat over the primer to keep the primer from absorbing moisture from the atmosphere. The aircraft people might have a suitable paint booth.
Call around. Most suppliers are glad to help. But painters know what works.
If an aircraft facility is not available, clean the metal. Do not sand blast it. Blasting only impinges the crud. Use a citrus based cleaner so that it doesn't negate the zinc chromate acid component. Don't use the primer if it has been mixed with the phosphoric acid for more than a few hours. You will want a THIN coating of primer. Just enough to completely cover the aluminum. Warm the aluminum just enough to be sure that the primer is dry. Then apply a base coat of your choice.
Acrylics do very well. Aircraft paint is preferable. Aluminum siding house paint is designed to chalk. I would avoid it. My choice is polyurethane. It is durable and color fast. Use a 1 to 1 polyurethane if you can get it. Polyurethanes come in 5 to 1, 4 to 1, 3 to 1, 2 to 1, and 1 to 1 ratios. Anything lower than 3 to 1 is a waste of money for your application. If this carousel horse is going to be ridden, I would use the 1 to 1 polyurethane.
Prep the aluminum by taking it down to the parent metal. Strip off all old paint with paint stripper or sanding. Truck washing facilities have an acid cleaner that is excellent.
The more research I do, the more product specific the process becomes. Check out this website for a starter. http://www.finishing.com
I would not mix products from different suppliers. Pick one brand and stay with it.

In the year 19XX (later established to be 1995 in subsequent titles), 200km north of Galzburg, South Africa, lies Outer Heaven, a fortified state founded by a "legendary mercenary" in the late 1980s. Word had gotten out to the western world that deep within the Outer Heaven stronghold, a weapon of mass destruction was being constructed. Government officials order the high-tech Special Forces unit FOXHOUND to infiltrate the fortress, assess the situation and neutralize the threat. In a mission known as "Operation: Intrude N313," FOXHOUND operative Gray Fox infiltrated the Outer Heaven stronghold. Days later, contact with Gray Fox is lost and his last transmission simply reads "METAL GEAR..."
Operative Solid Snake, FOXHOUND's newest recruit, is ordered by squad leader Big Boss to rescue Gray Fox and carry out his mission, "Operation: Intrude N313".
Upon insertion into Outer Heaven, Snake makes contact with local resistance members Kyle Schneider, Diane, and Jennifer. Using all of his skills and the equipment he procured on site, he manages to rescue Fox. He learns from Fox that Metal Gear is the codename of a nuclear warhead-equipped bipedal walking tank, which can engage and dominate in all forms of combat as well as launch its nuclear warheads from any location. Outer Heaven plans to use Metal Gear to impose itself as the new world superpower.
In order to destroy Metal Gear, and topple the Outer Heaven mercenaries, Snake rescues the lead engineer of Metal Gear, Dr. Drago Pettrovich Madnar, and his daughter, Ellen. Armed with information on how to destroy Metal Gear, his skill and indomitable spirit, Snake fights through the entire Outer Heaven force. He begins to notice that traps being set for him are too precise, and wonders how information on his activities is being tracked. Moreover, Schneider is ambushed by hostiles and is presumed dead after losing contact with Snake. One of the final hostages Snake rescues tells him that the mysterious "mercenary leader" of the entire base is none other than Snake's C.O., Big Boss, and that Outer Heaven is under his command.
Upon breaching the core of the base, Snake is able to neutralize Metal Gear before it reaches completion. As he makes his way out of the compound's basement, he is confronted by Big Boss himself; the corrupt leader had been using his connections within the U.S. government to steal military intelligence, establish his own mercenary force, and fund his activities. It was his aim to have Outer Heaven become the world's most powerful nation, able to bring even the western nations to their knees. He had the rookie Snake sent in, hoping to have him captured and feed the U.S. government misinformation, but had quite obviously underestimated Snake's capabilities.
Having lost Metal Gear and much of his force, Big Boss starts the self-destruct sequence for the compound, and promises he will not die alone; Snake will join him. An underground battle ensues, and despite injury, Snake defeats Big Boss and escapes the Outer Heaven compound as it crumbles in flames behind him. After the ending credits, a message from Big Boss is displayed saying that he will meet Solid Snake again.

When I worked for the Army Corps of Engineers, we used an epoxy paint on the concrete floors (it might work with plastic, it uses chemical bonding) and Rustoleum brand exterior grade paint on the equipment (steel) of the lock and dam that I was stationed at while attending a local college in Central Arkansas, it was a very hard material to chip away, as we tried to do that to older paint, usually we had to grind it off, but the paint lasted, the rust under the paint is what caused the separation of the materials. You must prep the area really well to attain a good seal so that moisture doesn't work it's way into joints of the steel, wood, concrete or whatever surface which you are applying it. Not sure what is used these days in the factory, but most heavy and expensive equipment maintenance repair shops use additives to paints which are in automotive finishes, and the market is dominated by DuPont. I might suggest trying a auto store which sells that type of paint.

I wouldn't. You don't have a way to finish it afterwards so that the metal won't flake off into your food from now on.

How did blacksmiths forge swords back in medieval times?
What equipment did they use and how, etc?
Question answered by mad_mav70
There were several methods that depended on the region. The first thing they had to do was get a source of iron. The earliest source was probably meteorites, but a some point they figured out how to build a fire hot enough to melt the metal that would puddle in the bottom. This was called the blossom, it looked like a big black sponge. It would be broke apart and using a hammer and anvil the pieces were hammered out using an anvil. A flux was used to protect the iron from the oxygen in the air that would destroy the metal. The fluxes varied depending on region also, sand, straw, borax were just some of the things used. Using these the pieces were hammered together into larger billets. Early swords were made of iron, at this point the billet would be hammered and shaped. Steel (alloy of iron and carbon) can be hardened when heated and quenched, it is a much better substance to make a blade. To get the steel the methods varied from region, we'll cover the European method. The would take the billet and pack it in hoof clipping, hair and other organic materials it was then put in the forge fire and heated for hours. The organic matter would transfer the carbon into the iron which was called steeling. That billet was then hammered out cut and folded several times to mix it together. After it was finished and shaped the smith would used various files and stones to shape and polish. In Europe there were specialist that would polish, sharpen, build the hilt/guard and etch the blade.
how can i sandblast my name on granite without any expensive equipment?
I would like to sandblast my name on my granite counter top, I'm not into buying those expensive sandblasting equipment. Is there a way that i can engrave my name on a granite the cheap way? I've seen some guides on sandblasting a design onto a small metal music player. They only used a specific type of granule and sand mixed with water.
Question answered by tex k
NO .Sand blasting is either carried out with compressed air or water or a mixture of both and then an abrasive grain is added to the stream .Both the equipment pumping the blasting medium and the nozzle controlling the stream must be harder than the blasting medium .As such they are expensive .You could try using an etching tool but it will not give as fine a finish as sand blasting .Some acids will etch granite but again it is expensive to buy and I think you need licences and valid reasons before you will be allowed to purchase it .Etching one worktop at home will not be a valid reason and suppliers are unlikely to supply such a small amount of acid anyway.
