    It is recommended to clean relentlessly with a baking soda mix and something like a tooth brush to neutralize the vinegar.

    starmac replied to a thread Sticker shock in Reloading Equipment
    Auctions are funny animals. I was at a western auto auction once and the retail price was marked on every item. I watched folks pay twice and better for some items, even some big items like freezers, when they could go 7 miles down the road and get...
