    mold maker replied to a thread motor????? in Reloading Equipment
    Mine was one of the MidWay tumblers that caused the recall by catching fire. At that time I ask them to send a SAFE one and I'd return the burned one for a refund. When they received the return I was given a refund including S&H, no questions...

    mold maker replied to a thread Last Kmart closing in Our Town
    When I was young, we drove 44 miles to the nearest K Mart and Sears. It was a real treat not to have to go to a different store for clothes, toys, tools, and yard supplies. We usually made the trip at least once a year before school started or...

    I'll just tap the address # and talk to them, or leave a message. That takes 3 taps only. Old school, even on modern technology, is still simpler.

    Kmart left as soon as Walmart announced a Super Store opening. Dollar General has opened 3 new local stores and left the strip mall. Five grocery chain stores closed as Walmart opened small local stores. Sears is still in the mall, but barely...

    At 11, I rode my bike to school with my trusty 22 strapped to the handle bars. The principal kept the rifle behind the office door till I left with it to hunt squirrels on the way home. Most of the boys had knives and many carried 22 ammo in their...

    Oh Well! I spilled my large tumbler full of bright shiny 223 cases and walnut on the cluttered dirty floor. Now I'm moving all the cans and boxes that it flowed around so I can clean up the mess. My knees and back are reminding me not to do...

    Just because it looks like pewter or has a sticker that says so doesn't mean squat. Just because that candle stick is marked pewter doesn't mean its weight is all pewter. Read the other threads to save time and money before buying. I have a milk...

    Ya can't choose a different cal if a .38 spec is what ya have. As with all of them shot placement is king. A miss with a 458 is still just a bigger bang with no effect.

    Yesterday evening I drilled a piece of steel to safely hold the 223 brass and ground an Allen wrench like Possomcops suggestion. I had to reshape it several times during the operation. The results is that about half the primer sleeves were easy to...

    The short answer is 1in 8 is right in the middle for rate of twist..You can shoot 55 or 60+ grain bullets. You may be a disadvantage with a 55 gr bullet at real long range

    Sounds like the thermostat is failing. The setting on the dial was never consistent from one pot to the next. Likely no replacement parts available, but the thermostat can be bypassed and a PID used for control.

    I've been casting sinkers since 1960 and boolits since 64, but I've never seen anything like that brown/tan in my pot. What did you use for flux? Did the alloy cast good (no wrinkles) round balls? Was the pot brand new with a coating to retard...
