    Used a Coleman 2 burner white gas camping stove for years with a 20# bottom pour pot, outside on the driveway, very carefully; Bent the (red hot) bars very minorly - not enough to need repair or anything. Till I upgraded to the Pro Melt. That cast...

    Someone mentioned that they thought the 9mm case was larger at the mouth than at the base... Actually the 9mm round is larger near the base than at the case mouth, as fired; See The SAAMI Spec for 9mm on page 36, tho the PDF file is numbered page...

    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...

    Conveyer belts, check with local quarries or gravel pits, anywhere that crushes rocks (or has a production line, like bottling plants) Used to live by one. Their junk pile had a LOT of old tired belts. I imagine most have old ones or could let...

    When you take the test, if you've studied for General you can take that test for the fee you already paid, and if you pass the General test, even take the Extra test. So consider keeping studying once you're sure you'll pass the Tech test, General...

    It's scary how that works, worse when you incur the wrath of Murphy and the new one vanishes overnight too! Don't tick off Murphy :p

    Interesting! Faster this way than if you did them one at a time, I imagine?

    Tuck it over your shoulder, when the dangerous animal gets just short of the butt pad of the shotgun, squeeze the trigger? Almost evil but I like it :)

    My first guess would be that more powder is needed, but it's hard to say without pictures. I've been making these for years (since ~ the 1980s) and too much powder can cause the case mouth to stick to the rifling, but some light rifling imprinting...

    It might make better sense to make a sticky here with URLs for sites like thingiverse, for 3d printed handy objects, and try to keep it up to date? STL files tend to be 100k+ for smaller objects (for example a micro SD card holder), a 3d printed...

    Maybe a career in Elk Deterrents lies ahead of you :) Letting the smoke out, yep it happens. Try to only do that with inexpensive parts though, not a clients' $25,000 computerized safety device you're testing :P All of us have lots to learn,...

    If your soldering skills are not up to taking leads off the board and replacing them, cut the leads and swap colors a couple inches off the boards. Do be certain to stagger the cuts i.e. cut one lead further than the other from the board to...

    Three44s, I DETEST it when they do that, but they seem to do it often. I tend to desolder power leads and put them on the right way, and put a paint or nail polish dot or a text sticker on the module noting the revision, it helps to do that if...
