    mold maker replied to a thread Coffee in Our Town
    I've started my day with coffee for over 73 years that I can remember. The only exception being three mornings before surgeries, but I made up for it before dinner. It's not a matter of want or desire, it's a necessity for everyone within...

    I've been to Relay 22 an hour north of LaTuque 5 times spring hunting over bait with a bow. 5 bears biggest one 19 6/16. We used stink bait, two rolls of toilet paper soaked in anise oil put in panty hose and thrown like a bolo as high as possible...

    They could always give them a snap with the rubber band that holds their man bun.

    Before the 40 S&W and 10mm came out I got a die set to swage 41 mag bullets to 401 for a 38-40. It pushed the jacket back making a small hollow base about 1/16 inch deep. After swaging the 41 mag bullets down .010 inches I can't imagine swaging .023...

    Man, I'd hate to have to remove a stuck boolit from 100' barrel. It would extend onto the neighbors' yard.

    As a boy, we used to burn car bodies to melt the lead off for race cars. The ground in that area was like pavement. There is a Wally World there now.

    The last of the Mom and Pop diners, as well as the last cafeteria in this county has closed. It's now fast food, chain stake place, or nothing. Just the memories make me hungry.

    Coins usually cost a premium over spot related to the grade and number struck. There is also always the unknown factor of how many have been melted. Silver rounds and bars of recognized source cost only a stated value over spot. The...

    mold maker replied to a thread Case Lub in Reloading Equipment
    All cases are de-primed and SS/citric cleaned. If required the pockets are swaged/reamed and flash holes cleared and beveled. Lanolin and alcohol lubed before sizing means no damage to dies. Trimming and chamfering leaves brass debris so cob...

    I knew exactly where to find my hammer when I saw the mayonnaise :roll: on the workbench. That was self-inflicted. My wife of 54 years, no longer fixes my mess, but she expects me to keep it to a minimum.

    Yep! The trays will hold lots more than the folded metal frame. I only use mine to separate brass by HS.

    Up to a lb overweight in an STM with ball bearings has been the norm for me, especially with rifle brass I usually process in large batches. Often the Thumblers needs a push start to get it going with the same load. The amount of citric acid is...

    Made for TV shows, as well as "History" written in books are both written by folks not necessarily knowledgeable on the subject. Several of the made for TV gun related shows were written by the same so-called expert. The facts presented were a...

    I also used to get the red brass price because of the small amount of lead left on the jackets. I always figured it was just a way to reduce the payout more than an actual grade.

    My Dad used the predecessor to the Whizzbang to lay off strait rows and cover seeds. His had a 28" metal wheel and that made it easy for some scoundrel to steal. He only used it in ground that was tilled and ready to plant. I'd be a runt if he...

    Twice this year I've had damage from lightening. Both times it took over week to discover the extent, and it was less than the deductible. I have an old APC unit in line to protect my PC equipment and wide screen. Figuring the third hit will be...

    For the price of those overpriced coolers, I'll have a young lass deliver a fresh cup and a smile to me whenever I want it. Call me cheap, but that extravagance is ridiculous. It's like paying the enemy to laugh at us.
