    I can't even remember the last brew I had. Diabetes sure cramps your lifestyle. I do however remember how good it was on a hot day. Someone have one for me, and tell me how much I would have enjoyed it.

    I can list a page of things that can't (according to some) be done, but at least one of us did it. NOT SAYING it should be done or recommending it, but everything new had a single mind pondering the question "what if". Where would we be if...

    That is the short answer. Here is a long answer: One thing I was told a long time ago, by Bullshop, when lubesizing troublesome boolits or using troublesome dies or a combination of both. Is to find the spot where there is NO pressure on the...

    It's a habit that becomes a lifestyle. I really get "the look" when I stop and pick up WWs at an intersection. I guess at 75 I'm supposed to be more mature. I remember when WWs were thrown in the garbage at every tire service center. They would...

    I'll offer another idea, maybe try using a 500 S&W shell or other 50 cal pistol caliber to make a spring loaded cookie cutter. These were parts I had laying around, but if you are handy you could make one with a brass case a nail and a short piece...

    You have added many good suggestions...but the one I highlighted in red is one that hasn't been mentioned yet. It's surely true with Lee pots, and I'd expect it to be true with other brands as well, as head pressure changes due to mass/gravity. ...
