    Yes, all the above is true,but, if you find yourself in a position of a cold mold and stubborn sprue plate knowing how to use the "screw driver trick" can be a lever saver. So before you denounce it learn it and store it away. You never know. D.C.

    I waited until 2000 and ventured into the shed, turned on the air conditioner and sized and lubed some boolits for my .357. I didn't stay out there too long, still oppressively hot.
