    How I wish I had some good and bad HT boolits on hand. It's hard to chase The Perfect HT Boolit if you've never held and smashed one. I tend to get flaking on the second coat now, here I did three identical bakes on and the golden ones flake very...

    Thanks for quick reply. I am really surprised. Many years ago, I had been advised by aquarium/pond fish supplier that I cant use Copper piping for water recirculation for pond aeration, as Copper corrosion traces will dissolve into the water and...

    I have heard of guys using Copper MIG wire being introduced into molten Lead like if he was welding. Steel melting pot is Earth, and copper wire aimed/welded into molten Lead shielded by MIG gas. They control weight ratio by weighing Lead prior to...

    Are you aware, that solubilised Copper placed into ponds also kill fish. Fish are extremely sensitive to Copper, and if I recall correctly, Copper kills fish in parts per million.

    If your alloy on top of oven gets to 60C for short time, should not be a problem. Main thing to keep in mind, first coat must be bonded well. If not, once exposed to heat, it is a re-melt job. Trying to again re-coat will not fix first coat...

    I suspect, that your first coat was not dried adequately. Once coating and alloy gets to about 180C it starts to cross link and bond. However, traces of moisture will affect bonding, and that is why normally it flakes when doing smash test. Over...

    Can you post a picture of the pellets used with these air guns? What sort of alloy is used? I cant imagine just how much pressure is needed to shoot 300 metres with air. I wonder how these pellets would go with the coating? I was advised, that...

    The pistol arrived yesterday. I was really impressed with the fit and finish of the $500 Rock Island 1911, while it's "plain", it's surely a well done "plain". I've handled many economy 1911 guns at the LGS and usually I'm not impressed, even the...

    I usually loaded mine down to .45-70 levels. With Rugers, you may want to check if it was a model where the bolt locks when on safety, or not. I had a .338 WM that didn't, and found when in rough brushy terrain, the bolt could be pulled open...
