    ..............These are small pistol size, but thought I'd double check if small rifle, or small pistol. The card board slip case (Slides over a routed wooden tray) printed in blue ink says: 100 No. 1 1/2 Western, IMPROVED, Non-Mercuric,...

    MOZZ Just wanted to ask, how did you know that the load you placed into the oven reached correct temperature for correct cure? If you are relying on probe with cast on the end as being the indicator, you may be misled by simple facts. If you have...

    I understand that. It does not explain why his solvent wipe test fails. As you know, coating will not cure, and can be removed with solvent, or the next coat, because it is under baked. Even if he has a projectile on end of his temperature...

    So just to be clear I am sure that the coated cast bullets are reaching temperature, the oven is controlled by a PID and the thermal couple has a bullet screwed on the end of it. Once the oven has returned to temperature I start the clock. Mozz...

    Mozz, I have already made many communications with you, stressing about importance of proper drying. It is not clear, are you quoting 180C oven temperature or product temperatures? Again I repeat, the coated cast has to get to 180C. After coated...

    Mozz do you have liquid or powder HI-TEK? If it is liquid, it may have gone off after 5 years. Powders are reasonably stable. As rule of thumb, solvent wipe off can be caused by not enough baking at correct temperatures. After thorough drying,...

    I received this link to a video from South African manufacturer. I hope it can be viewed by members. It shows the TRUBLU coated casts. They look simply great. https://www.facebook.com/riazj/videos/10214004712472252/?t=1

    Tazza, you can add a micro switch to the door that is directly wired to turn fan on and off. Selection of switch and wiring, it is important to make sure that heat does not affect them. Get a sparky to do electrical work.

    Ok, after 1st coat was dried, it went into a preheated, well insulated, modified convection oven set with PID at 393 deg F. The oven fell to 345 deg F in the first 30 seconds The oven then raised to 402 deg F air temperature measured 1/2" below the...

    I have one, a Toyota with 4 way bucket. I got well and truly scammed by seller. It looked like new, low hours on clock, no oil leaks every thing seemed to work OK, and, after about 5-6 hours of work, I noticed that bucket seemed to swing from...

    From what you are describing, you seem to be using far too much coating mixture. If after shake coating, you have liquid remaining which drips off, there seems an excess coating mix present. Coating in such cold area at 58F will slow down solvent...

    ...............Another aid to casting, especially large cavity/multi-cavity/high temp pours is to aid the cooling of the blocks. I've seen fans used, and they ranged from computer fans to automobile 12V heater/AC fans and such. What I have used...
