    georgerkahn mentioned the hammer mold that was going around a few years ago. It went thru my hands after casting 3 hammers. That is what I use to open sprue plates until I get things adjusted enough that I can use my gloved hand to open. The first...

    Never heard of LSA before this thread. Looked it up. $14.38 for 4 oz at Amazon. I don't have any full auto guns and I'm not hard on those that I do have. I'm a sucker for anything that I can mix and the latest is a recipe I found that is...

    Like georgerkahn, I worked for a manufacturer of transformer components for manufacture of large power transformers. A couple of years before I retired, they had somehow purchased an excessive amount of solid wire solder in 25# rolls. They...

    A couple of years ago or so, I sold some solder rolls that I was never going to use. Used a Medium Flat Rate box. Used 1/8'' plyboard top and bottom and extra cardboard on each side. Taped it with the filament tape in all directions. I weighed...

    alamogunr started a thread Archives in Testing Area
    How do I access the archives? I know I've got it bookmarked but I'm my own worst enemy by having way too many bookmarks. If someone can point me in the right direction, it will save me a couple of days going thru several hundred bookmarks.

    I have just realized that I have been in error when I stated that Alox 606-55 was 55% solvent cut. I remember, sort of, reading that somewhere. Probably stated by someone just as ignorant as I was in following along. I just went to the MSDS for...

    I used my homemade version of 45/45/10 on about 200 H&G 68 this past week. I still use the butter tub to apply. I have found that, usually, I get too much in the tub on the first application. I also usually slightly heat the boolits before...

    I'm no expert or even half way knowledgeable and I don't know where you are located, but the big problem is going to be shipping if you expect to try selling anywhere but local.

    alamogunr replied to a thread Joining an airgun forum in AirGuns
    Just joined. This is more active than most forums. I won't be all that active because airguns are sort of an add on to my regular shooting, which is not all that active the older I get. I do like to keep up to date though.

    I've had a full size Kimber for about 20 years. Except for a problem that I caused, it has been fully reliable. That description may be somewhat suspect since I don't shoot it all that often. I have 2 other sort of 1911's, Para Ordinance, that...

    I do have a chronograph so I can start low with those powders and work up. Even though I don't have the exact gun that the grandsons have(S&W Shield) I can make sure that I don't even approach max loads. This is an incentive to get started on PC...

    I've got both the lube groove mold and the NLG mold of this boolit. Looking for load information. I plan to load a bunch for the grandsons so loads will be mid-range at most. I'm going to use the NLG to get into PC and for now the lube groove...

    Does anyone know how LLA compares to Alox 606-55. It is my understanding that LLA is Alox 606 with a larger solvent cut. I just sold some Alox 606-55 to get rid of the excess quantity that I had and would never use up. I would like to be able...
