    Zbench replied to a thread annealing in Swaging
    Oxygen is what causes scale. Anything from CO2 to Nitrogen to work. No need to waste rare earth gases in the experiment. When I was fooling around with this I did use an AL plate and drilled it for a nipple that I hooked to the tank. I then...

    I've got brand new never opened tubes of bullet lube for sale. Two types as seen in the attached photo: 11 Tubes of RCBS Lube, 6 rifle and 5 regular and 9 tubes of Lyman Super Moly. This amount of lube would sell for $110 retail, will sell to one...

    All that high pressure comes at a cost in that it makes the finished bullet very close to final diameter. The result is that the bullets needs to be run through a Bullet Reducing die to get the bullet .001" under final size before it is run through...

    Some might remember a thread I posted last year about drawing jackets from Strip. I have been using and enjoying that tooling set for the past year, and thought I would post a thread which shows how some of those heavy jackets can be used. The...

    Zbench replied to a thread Shotgun Slug Dies in Swaging
    I was going to mention the same thing. Instead of the elaborate broaching approach that was previously mentioned, it's much easier to make a punch with the grooves for the fins cut into it which still is no walk in the park considering they are...

    Zbench replied to a thread Making lead wire in Swaging
    As others have said, the fusion of the two billets is a mechanical one. For it to be fused, the wire coming out of the die would have to be molten. That is the only way that something that is two pieces can become one. If it were molten, your...

    Zbench replied to a thread Making lead wire in Swaging
    LUP, My experience exactly. It is a conundrum why the OP needs such robust wire demands. You can cut a boatload or cores fast from the kind of wire we make. Even semi commercials makers do it the same way. Perhaps when the holy grail of wire...

    Bill, That's exactly my experience as far as the "welding" effect goes. As an aside, I had Corbin make a special die for the smaller wire sizes I make. Apparently, the normal hydro just can't extrude wire effectively under .170. To get around...

    Zbench replied to a thread Making lead wire in Swaging
    The wire gets very hot from rubbing in the oriface it's extruded from. Too hot to touch with bare hands and enough to burn skin. I think you are mixing up theory with reality. I've extruded tons, and with any commercial extruder, it's never going...

    Zbench replied to a thread Making lead wire in Swaging
    I was on the other thread, and what you propose won't work. You have to lube the billets to get it to work, so the very ends collect all sorts of crud, oil, dross from pouring the billet. Even if this could work, the joint is not like a solid...

    That's how Corbin's works. The amount of wire is limited to the size of the billet. His standard billets are .75" in diameter and 4 inches long. You are somewhat limited on the stroke of the press as far as length, but I know he builds custom...

    You would need an "S" press to make it work, but Corbin makes what they call a bullet fixing die. I didn't see anything like that in the R line of hobbiest dies, but the idea is to straighten or bump up pulled bullets. I would think this would...

    No Zombies, for .312 that would give you a length of wire about 24" long

    If you have $3000 to spend, you might consider getting a Corbin Hydro press and make your own for free. That's what I do. They aren't in continuous spools, but, you can look past certain things when you are rolling your own for free.
