    MaryB replied to a thread Silver? in Lead and Lead Alloys
    Mercury dimes are my favorite followed by the Morgan Silver dollar but they hold to high of a premium for a junk silver collector like me. American Silver Eagles are nice too and a few years are VERY collectible and carry a corresponding high price....

    Ballistics gel is probably cheaper, you can mimic bone with the aforementioned plywood or use a real bone(rack of ribs for a typical heart/lung shot)

    Age old problem with ALL forums. Newbies don't bother to search. But we need to share what we know even if it a repeat over and over. Think of it as teaching a new student every year in school, same curriculum...

    I would only recommend ultrasonic for smaller batches. The rotary tumblers w/SS pins for large numbers, and vibrators for light duty. The cons are rinsing, dirty water disposal, and drying with ultrasonic and rotary, lead-laden dust from...

    I take it you are using short lengths of copper wire. Any particular length, or random? Did you cut with side cutters leaving pinched ends? It sounds like something else I'll just simply have to try since I have what it takes. Necessity might be...

    There certainly seems to be a lot of regulars missing here of late. Lots of knowledge gone. The membership numbers don't show it but my memory says so. Some even left on their own for whatever. If we lose the older members we will also lose the...

    My first rifle (22LR 552 BDL) and shotgun (1100 BDL) were Remingtons but that was late 60s and everything has suffered since then. Glad I still have them since I couldn't afford to replace them. From top of the heap to bankruptcy is a big fall.

    Crab apples are smaller, 1 to 1 1/2 inch diameter really sour apples that are very high in pectin so the apple butter thickens better. To sour to eat out of hand but add some sugar and cook them down they are heaven!

    After 4 big cups and the time spent, I bet I know the next thing your gonna do before leaving for work. LOL Sometimes I used to do the same and it required an unscheduled pitstop. Hope you work out the LPP problem.

    mold maker replied to a thread Gifted hobbyist wanted in Our Town
    While I can't speak for gunsmiths, I'd much rather have a gemstone cut by a talented hobbyist than a commercial or professional. I dare you to find fault with any stone I've cut but can find faults in all "professional" cuts. They can't take the...
