    Depending on contaminant, some alloys go a porous grey, some stay silvery with fine pores left where the acid removed reactive contaminants. Some alloys start to fizz as soon as the acid is poured over them. These are mainly contaminated with a...

    Simple You take a plastic container, (size will depend on how many you are treating), place into the container, the alloy that was cast. Add water 2 parts, and Hydrochloric Acid, one part into container. (For example premix 2 liters Water and add...

    You will find that other colours will do the same as they are all based on the same resin base.

    The Alloy doesn't HAVE to be 2,6,92. The coating is very forgiving in it's application. However if you have some weird alloy and it doesn't perform, you can't blame the coating as the fault. Go back to wax lube as it doesn't care how hard the alloy...

    OK... Just got off the phone to the Metalurgist Where I buy my 2,6,92 hardball alloy from. He said that if you really have 5,5,90 alloy, you will have adhesion issues due to the very high (and wasteful) Tin content. The molecular structure of tin...

    No lab needed. But you have to check the variables. You say a friend gave you Acetone. Are you SURE that what they gave you is UN1090 acetone? Not contaminated with other stuff? As they say.... Trust No-one. If you can not 100% verity (no...

    If it failed at 12 but passed at 14, your alloy is not actually getting to 200Deg C. Drill a hole in a bullet and insert a K sensor and check the reading. this will show the actual temp of the alloy. If you are using a small convection oven, the...

    How I pre-warm my bullets. place them on the oven as it heats up. Once they are coated, they get dried on this rack with a fan heater blowing hot air over the top 2 trays before they go to the oven. Once they are baked, I cool them with a...

    So... you say your alloy is Lyman #2. How do you know??? What is the BHN??? Have you tested it?? Does the baked bullets pass the wipe and smash tests? You picture of the " nail scrape" is removing lead and coating. Your alloy is too soft.....

    Velvet, I suspect, that reason for first coat failure, is all directly related to inadequate drying of first coat. Let me clarify. The solvent may have dried off but coating is not dry. During shake coating, the evaporation of Acetone chills...
