    LenH replied to a thread Range scrap in Lead and Lead Alloys
    The range scrap I get is about 90% jacketed. But my brother gets it for me so other than the propane and the time spent it is nearly free. His range is in a river bottom and he uses a rake and a shovel and sifts out the dirt.

    The stuff on the swaged bullets it probably Mica. I got a jar from Midway for some strange reason but it is a real fine powder and I have used it to coat bullets with real sticky lube. A little goes a long way. I have used those HBWC and it feels...

    LenH replied to a thread For Ten Bucks in Reloading Equipment
    It didn't work, the light hung too low but the globe came off and it will sit on top of the hole in the tool head. Even with the 9 volt transformer it is not as bright but still bright enough to see powder level in the case.

    LenH replied to a thread For Ten Bucks in Reloading Equipment
    I picked up a set of these and found an old transformer but the output is only 9V but the light works. It is a bit large for the tool head hole. But I'll get it hooked up here in a bit. I am going to epoxy a split .3/8 case it the top of the light...

    My old mentor died about 4 years ago. He called me about 7 years ago and told me he had some lead he needed to get rid of and he would cut me a deal. I got 200 pounds of Lyman #2 for $50. He said he had more but would dig it out. We were in his...

    I had a mentor and I started this madness when I was 15 (I'll be 61 this year). One of my friends dad got me hooked. At first I would just watch and ask questions then he would tell me to get my hind end over there and do it and he would explain...

    LenH replied to a thread Bottom Pour -- Why? in Casting Equipment
    When I first started casting I used that small Lee pot and a Lyman ladle with Lyman or RCBS 2 cavities molds, it worked for me for years. Then I got a 1911 and it seemed to defeat the purpose of casting. I couldn't keep the thing fed. The guy who...

    LenH replied to a thread PID Happiness in Casting Equipment
    I have used a PID controller for the last 3 or 4 years. Make sure you get extra probes, I use one probe for boolit casting, a different one for an electric smoker and still another one for a powder coating oven. I like to have extras just in...

    I have used this alloy and it is great stuff. It comes well packed and is super clean.

    Are you referring to an XFR tester? Completely different animal than a hardness tester.

    I have 3 H&G molds, one 4 cavity #50 .38 WC and I updated the screws to the handle with some set screws and roll pins to keep the bottom of the mold flush. The original screws were flat head handle screws and were extended out of the bottom of the...

    LenH replied to a thread Best furnace? in Casting Equipment
    I have a ProMelt, second hand, got it from a member here on the Swapping & Selling. It even had a PID come with it. It was still pricey but worth every penny. I still have a Lee 20# bottom pour and have cast 1000's of bullets with it. I even put...
