    The PID is a more directly applicable to controlling heating elements. I know that some install a switch that operates fan from independent power source. When the door is opened, the fan Switch turns off the fan, and when door is closed fan can be...

    I have owned one or had access to a .30-06 all my life. I currently own a M1903A3, M1917, M-1Garand and a REM 700 in .30-06. Love them all. But when I was able to Hunt w a scoped Rifle, I usually picked up a REM 700 in .270Win. First new rifle I...

    Burnt Fingers I am wondering what is the thickness that you achieve with the Hi-Tek coatings? Generally two coats applied to cast provides about 1.8-2.2 thou with two coats. Some like to coat much thicker, but reality is that in majority of...

    Gatch If the over cooked casts pass all tests, they will work OK. Unfortunately colour suffers. We have had dark green baked at 200C for days. It all was Black, but was best performing despite colour.

    Sometimes you have to buy a package of stuff that includes things you don't want to get the things you do want. That's how you end up with stuff to sell off, to off set the money you spent to get the things you did want. And sometimes you just...

    After growing up reloading on all manner of presses with bicycle handle grips, I was thrilled when RCBS brought out the BALL Handle for the Green Machine or the 4X4. Can't remember which, don't have either anymore. But the 4X4 Handle with the BALL...

    Norske, I disagree completely on the old .357Mag Factory load wearing out N-frame's quickly. My DAD had a Registered Pre-War .357Mag 8 3/4" that he regularly fired a load of the Thompson Gas Check 158gr bullet over a charge of 2400, way to hot...

    You can make "demooner" by finding a piece of metal tubing 6inches long that is barely large enough to fit over a .45ACP round. Then cut off about 2/3 off one end of the tube about 1/8" deep. Then you put it over the cartridge in a moonclip and...

    I use 28.0grs of IMR3031 over the Lyman #375449GC cast of Linotype. Gives me great accuracy out of a Winchester 1981-94-Chief Crazy Horse. Under 2" at 100yrds from the bench. That's 5 shots.

    I have a bit of a problem with mine. Got it Xmas '17, I noticed right off that you had to drag the blade fast to start, otherwise you end up with a divot at the base of the blade. And you can't get the base of the blade sharp, because you can't get...

    I like to cast from multiple molds I find that molds of the same Height make casting much easier & smoother I use 3+ molds at a time. Or even 4 if they are all 2cav. I cast from about 725degrees. Even with arthritis I can turn out a good 500...

    When End of Trail was still in SoCal, back in the mid 1990's, a guy who owned a Gatling Gun (Carriage mount) brought it for a couple of years. You could shoot it for a buck a shot; $20 for a 20rd stick mag or $100 for a Eccles 100rd drum. Man it...
