    I have my pot set up on a box to bring the spout up where I can see it. I do not like to sit down when casting as that presents too much horizontal surface area for hot lead to land on, AKA my lap. There is a bible verse about hot coals in a mans...

    In normal times I would automatically say get a lee mold. They are good to learn on and if you do happen to break it you aren't out too much. These times are not normal so you may have trouble getting any mold at a reasonable price. On the other...

    Tyler, I know your tolerances are good, I would say they are perfect. But when printing there are always differences depending on the printer. In the manual it suggested that you use brims for printing the drop tubes. I use brims 100% of the time...

    I am using .2 and .12. I normally use a .8 nozzle when printing but I had to go down to a .4 to print these parts just for accuracy. Pretty much everything I printed didn't fit correctly or needed to be sanded. I haven't used cura in years, I...

    Here are some 356 102 round nose boolits that I wanted to cast to see how the new mold worked. It worked well. Then there was that old round nose 45 mold just laying there so I picked it up and made a few of those. Both will get red powder coat...

    I am not sure if it was ever refinished. The wood looks to be almost a shellac of some sort. I had considered stripping it down and giving it an oil rub. The inside of the fore-grip and under the butt-plate both have the serial number marked
