    Lead has in the past been available everywhere, but plastics and health scares have fixed that. Wheel weights, plumbing, roofing scrap etc are fast becoming a thing we read about, but can't find. If ya find some even at an exorbitant price, it may...

    mold maker replied to a thread USPS Money orders in Our Town
    Why would you use a check or a big bill to buy a stamp? That's what banks are for. Besides you can buy stamps at groceries and even at some banks. You can even buy them from your local USPS carrier.

    After having the local Law to investigate ( 3 times), who was ringing my doorbell at 2-4 AM and disappearing, we discovered the bell button had become temperature sensitive and rang every time the temp dropped below 16*. The temp here rarely drops...

    If they're not a bank, what are they doing selling you checks? Their rates are high, their service is lousy, their reputation for service has tanked. I never heard of taking the MO to a bank. If ya have an account at the bank, why not use a...

    mold maker replied to a thread USPS Money orders in Our Town
    USPS MOs are a PITA on both ends. I only use them if no other payment is accepted. PP may be anti-gun, but at least on the buying end it's hassel free. For us that have to make a special trip to the PO it can be a real problem and if it is a...

    mold maker replied to a thread Black walnuts in Our Town
    My Granny made the absolute best black walnut cake I ever had. She only made it on special occassions and I never missed one. At least for me, accumulating enough to use cracking with a hammer, is a lost cause.

    mold maker replied to a thread My Dad in In Remembrance
    Lost both my parents over 10 years ago while holding their hands, and both had lived long full lives, but the missing is forever. Alzheimer's robs both the patient and the family. Glad you had that last memory of him to cling to. Prayers sent...

    Any extra hardness gained by quenching the ingots will be lost when they are re-melted for casting. As long as you remember or note the alloy nothing is changed. Quenching could cause water inclusion in the shrinking ingots that might cause...

    Thanks for the info, but I ordered several stems as replacements many years ago. At the (then) price I couldn't justify repairs. I did find that grinding a taper to the stem allowed easier use in small necks like 223.

    Have you ever noticed how efficiently they deliver junk mail, circulars, and advertisements? Even political mailings magically appear.

    At .80/lb, any good lead, especially already in ingot form, is a real bargain. Especially if the scrapper will scan it and give you a read out.

    If I die with bacon or country ham on my breath, you can bet the undertaker will have trouble getting the grin off my face. Both contribute salt to my diet, so thats one less thing to worry about. BTW I've got a country ham grin on right now. I...

    I take anything the learned Drs. say with a grain of salt. After all they are just practicing. As good as medicine seems to be, its only your Drs. SWAG when he advises you. That's why a second opinion is wise. As far as salt, it's necessary, ...

    I still use the Thumblers Tumbler bought in the "70s and pins from STM. At one period I bought an additional STM unit due to volume processing. I always De-prime first, to avoid Berdan primers, and nested cases. 1/2-1 ts of Citric acid and two...
