    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!

    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...

    I have been buying and selling US silver coins for years, unless you have mint state (MS) coins they are scrap silver except for rare years/mint marks. Typically sell maybe 25-50 cents over spot at most. Sold some Mercury dimes not to long ago and...

    I was at a local gun shop, when owners showed me the new Henry .223, man was I impressed! Fit and finish was great, wood was beautiful, metal was finished nice, and price was $359.00! I will have one in .243 and .45/70!

    My grandparents had a crabapple tree that produced hundreds of pounds of apples every year. We would pick 4-5 5 gallon buckets then peel, core, and slice them on an old fashioned apple peeler(I have one like it!). Cook them down all day constantly...

    I used to always use a pair of cheap HF nitril gloves for the same reason. Spitting in a public place without using a bottle with lid is just plain rude and nasty.

    If it is 80% pure Kitco buys scrap for about $12 an ounce... but it makes a neat paperweight! Make a goofy mold and pour a giant boolit!

    Your 64 quarter is common junk silver worth $3 or so... without a good picture I can't say what condition might add... A plain 64(no mint mark) in MS-64 condition(like from the mint, no defects at all) is listed at $12.40 right now, actual retail is...
