    kens replied to a thread I love Lee Pots! in Casting Equipment

    How long and deep is the nipple threads.?? I had a nipple once that had long threads, it was bottoming out against the opposite side of the drum instead of the nipple base. If the nipple threads are too long, they can block the drum.

    I would like to see pressure tests. Larry, are you out there? I don't think anything spectacular is going to happen with 4f. But, I would truly like to see pressure tests.
