    Danzac, Tungsten Disulfide, news to me but it's Moly Disulfide-like with higher temperature capability, nice! He's getting the results he wants, and sounds like you two have the life you want, that's great! Enjoy :)

    Great to support one another, that's THE way to make life work well :) 500 is a good start, and those kids will remember and learn :) I am guessing that coating is maybe motor mica or Molybdenum Disulphide, there are other coatings though. It...

    Lots of good info, I probably will use cat treat containers and similar containers sold at TAP Plastics as they're pretty cheap, about the same thing as those nut containers. 2x's on lower shelves for lead items, maybe 1x shelves on higher ones for...

    Aluminum wire also "creeps" i.e. on the screwed in connections the wire's metal moves out from yhe pressure, so you have to re-tighten it on a regular schedule. I looked at buying one house but as it had Al wire, passed. House fires just don't sound...

    Good luck! I hope the drilling was done directly in line with the axis of the rest of the boolit. Otherwise accuracy could suffer.

    Forager rounds used small shot, not large balls. Think of a round designed to take grouse, turkey, rabbits, etc. With large balls you really want the ball centered in the bore fairly well, or accuracy will be quite bad as 45-70s have rifled...
