    This is only complicating your life. Simply use one alloy that was cast, and do your tests with that. Do not quench after baking, and simply fan cool baked alloy. I am also considering, that Water may be forcing its way under baked coatings and...

    Gold was the best of the bunch. I have read the thread and tried longer cure times up to color change. Smash fail at 15 minutes,wipe fail at 10 minutes. I also have left some boolits in the oven bottom for days. If you have solvent test failure...

    Are you using any sort of mold release when casting? No contaminants on your bullet storage containers. Thanks, But I'll keep this STI...:bigsmyl2:

    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.

    A lot of 9mm users here like their bullets sized to .3575" dia. They say that .356 leads, but .3575 does not. I use .3565" dia in the STI Tac 5 and the barrel is super shiny after 1 patch of hoppes. Others have stated that the powder used in the...

    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...

    I like it a lot. Very modern style. I don't know where or how I could use it and thank you for the offer. If you post me a photo it will be cherished. Just a thought, have you received your coatings? You posted that you were expecting arrival.
