    During my career one of my responsibilities was providing cost estimates (ymmv), among other expectations as a Professional Engineer. I like to "add it up" if you don't mind. USED (eBay - quick & dirty method) $40 to $60 for the 2A press $125...

    I am not a machinist. Get that disqualification right out front. I do like micrometers (because they are COOL machines that appeal to my engineering mind in this reloading and casting hobby) and have both a 0-1" Starrett (purchased for $15 at a...

    I don't really see protection of "things" (property) as reasonable use of deadly force. I always think, steal a loaf of bread - lose their life? No. Not reasonable to me. "Things" are replaceable; someone's life is not. Surprising them in...

    Any water above ~115 degrees will scald skin, and after that - though wet, seems pretty hot. If you water drop, you know your melt is still plenty hot when the 5-gal. plastic bucket has boolit-induced indentations in the bottom, even pin hole burns...

    If PERFECTION (or a close as we can get) in air or water cooled boolits is a concern, then WHY drop them into a pile in the first place? Drop one on a towel. Move it. Drop one in water. Move it. Or other methods (as previously described) that...
