    Beagle333 replied to a thread Copper source? in Gas Checks
    Why would I want to buy commercial checks if I have a checkmaker, skeettx? Do they have copper rolls or sheets? (I didn't see any) Thanks Dan, I'm going to check that out.

    I ordered some from Sage, but quite often people will have some that they don't need anymore or a huge surplus and I might get a discount on some of them. Or a checkmaker and I can punch my own.:smile:

    If you have any extra or leftover .41 gas checks (Hornady or Gator - fits .397± shank) or maybe even a .41 checkmaker that you'd let go of, please drop me a PM with whatever you have and what you'd want for them? I prefer to pay with PP or a check...

    I got one from Amazon. It was just one of the $40-50 models but it does the job. Several of my friends have them too. It comes in handy against any "he said, she said" arguments. It's right there on the video.

    It's probably more tin than lead. While the mold is still at casting temp, touch a tiny bit of beeswax to the area and wipe it hard with a piece of burlap or denim. It'll scrub right off. If the mold is really hot, you might be able to just scrub...
