    Sighted enemy and sank same! This was actually an easy project, but you all already knew that. I ground the die down, chamfered the mouth of it, and it is back in the turret. As to the chamfer, I tried to scratch/cut a plastic Bic pen, a brass...

    Quick answer (the battery is about to run out): I need to increase the clearance between top of boolit and bottom of seating die on my Classic Turret Press (with boolit seated way out to fill chamber throat, and die screwed way in (sic, down) for...

    Thanks to all. I'll have at it myself then. Using the suggestions given, I'll use a lock nut as a guide for flatness, and find something to chamfer with decreasing grits. I'm thinking the chamfering will be the most important part of this to get...

    I need to shorten my RCBS seating die, but I do not have a lathe. I'm pretty sure I can do an absolutely horrible hack job on it with a grinder and then a Deremel tool to chamfer the opening. However... To wit: I'd like to ask if someone on CB,...

    I do not mean this in any way out of line, but why would you trust your Rossi (even locally) to an admitted "hobbyist" before you would trust it to a well known gunsmith with recommendations from members of CB? Having been a professional welder for...

    I had some COWW ingots stick in my first aluminum muffin pan as you describe. I think it is the coating on them for baking or ?? Once burned off they work just great. The melting point of Al is 1220*F, so though the heat can weaken Al, I doubt the...

    I recently completed a deal with Jessdigs. He is a straight shooter to be trusted. I have never traded with anyone on CB who tried as hard to make me comfortable with the deal beforehand. His communication skills are excellent.

    I used to mine dirt berms, and stopped due to the occasional live round turning up. I found them all, but finally figured it was not worth my worry and danger. I guess people got upset with duds and just threw them over the target frames. Really...

    Think I can picture this... Photo? I'm thinking about getting a Cabine Tree tester, and intrigued about this process. I understand what you are saying/doing, but how do you have it mounted. Thanks

    GhostHawk, I appreciate you response. Really do! However, as this has developed, I've stated my current problem is with PMs, now, as my ability to upload images to "Posts" has come back. I have no capability with PMs to "Go Advanced", and there I...

    This is what I get when I try to insert an image into a PM. Why it works here, now, I cannot say. ?? The option to upload is just gone. Any ideas why this option no longer exists when I want to "insert image" into a PM?

    Thanks, but the problem is that I have NO choice for "uploading" a photo. The only option is to go to a "URL". Normally there are two options: 1) upload from a computer by browsing, and 2) enter a URL. I do not have option number 1 at all when I try...
