    NOT any sort of a wanna'be machinist, what I did years back with a 4-cavity Lyman mould with identical problem was to set mould on drill press table, and found the largest number (e.g., #1 - #60) drill bit which would just fit in the rusted/stripped...

    I use cardboard boxes (I now have 55 or 56 of these) stacked and labeled on shelves in garage -- where I have my decapping, pin tumbling, and annealing set-up, as well as doing most of my casting. The cardboard boxes are relatively inexpensive; I...

    I have an air rifle I do this swap on: a Leupold scope for target, and a red dot for critter dispatch. (It is a .22 caliber PCP Benjamin Marauder) My answer may sound/be "funny" (as in, "strange"), as I can take off and put either on what seems as...

    What you do not see, is I have a hole drilled in the aluminum in which I have a PID thermocouple which (I use PID for several different operations) slides in when casting, to keep aluminum block at ~350*F. Bion, I was at a local junk yard seeking...

    MOST sadly :( I do not get enough venison to justify the expense of a commercial type crank unit, although I drool at a few in the LEM catalog ;)... However, a few years ago my younger son served an awesomely tender and delicious (deer) steak...

    georgerkahn replied to a thread A new toy in Casting Equipment
    Bion, I now have three of these! The only two faults I've had with mine include: 1/ The (imho) very poorly designed 110VAC plug/cord going into an Eisen-glass socket. The one I purchased in the 1970s brand new broke after but a few years, and the...

    Bon jour! Back when I was much younger and had two working legs I ventured in the "silhouette" arena for, if I recall correctly, but one summer -- but this was a pistol league. They shot rim-fire and centre-fire, and I had bought an Anschutz...

    One might reply (with a smile), "depends what you're hunting." :) I have this mould, casting with a fairly hard alloy with gas check applied. I had acquired a Uberti 1866 clone in .44 Remington Mag calibre, and this bullet shoots quite well. ...

    If there was enough interest I am sure Miha would cut them. Not sure if his current cherry cuts Gc or Pb. I will reach out this week to him and ask.

    georgerkahn replied to a thread 25 cal pellet question in AirGuns
    As much as I love NOE bullet moulds, a close friend purchased and tried his very best to make .25 cast pellets. His best results were, if I recall correctly, with as pure a lead as he could get, with just a smidgeon of (RotoMetal) tin added. (As...

    What a gorgeous rifle you have! Best wishes with it, too. I bought a "sporterized 1903" years back, quite inexpensive with its sewer-pipe bad barrel and low serial number -- a Springfield Armory S/n 109,945; made in 1905 -- indicating it being...

    If it was me, I'd ring Pyramid Air,and/or Airgun Depot, et cetera -- if these folks do not render in house good repairs, I'd be most surprised if they didn't know someone, or a firm, that does. Several years back a S&W CO2 air pistol my son was...
