    Lee mold in mine. I had no luck with Power Pistol, I think it's too hot. Much better luck with Titegroup.

    jonp replied to a thread Welding And Amperage Needed in Our Town
    I was instructed by the electrician on putting in the transfer switch. Before I get it done I'll most likely have an electrician (wife's dad is a commercial/industrial electrician) make sure it's being done right. That's in the future anyways. ...

    I don't. My concern is that I use walnut media in a tumbler and I don't want a piece to get stuck in the primer.

    The recent thread I posted for welding has me once again thinking of running power to the garage for a DC outlet. A few years ago I had an electrician put a 200 Amp box on the house with a 100 Amp sub-box in the house. This leaves 100Amps outside....

    I agree it's a complex issue. No, it's not. The Captain did not follow his Chain Of Command and furthermore alerted all of our enemies that one of America's primary deterrents, a carrier battle group, was not operational. Much bad decision...

    I disagree with your assessment, Doug. The Captain bypassed his Chain of Command. His immediate boss, a Rear Admiral, was actually on the ship with him. Instead of following the Chain, he wrote a letter and CC'd a number of people outside the...

    I agree, get what you want not what you think will be ok. You will be much happier. When I was buying my first bike I thought a Vulcan would work. Went to get it and saw a Softtail Custom which went home with me. Never regretted it and I still...

    NC is shotgun only although it doesnt say you can't use a bow. I watched a Tom and 3 hens behind the house a few days ago and was thinking that $1200 check our government is sending would buy a Benelli Super 90 Montefeltro.

    jonp replied to a thread The Reloading Podcast in Cast Boolits
    Ok, listened to a few. Not much specific stuff but maybe I caught a few odd ones. "COWW is the same as Lyman #2 and thats all you ever need" was a strange one. Not bad but sounded more like a couple of guys talking reloading at a bbq.

    That's quite a good link you put up and very interesting. I'm curious as to why so few 10mm as I understand many are going to it for the power but also the round count. More is always better in my book. I'm also surprised by the few 45LC...

    15 amps = 14/2 20 amps = 12/2 30 amps = 10/2 When in doubt use the next bigger wire. Match the wire size to the circuit breaker. You can use 12/2 wire with a 15 amp breaker but never 14/2 with a 20 amp breaker. If your running that far with...
