    Nice score, shame it's quite rare for casting gear to pop up over here. Does this model use shear pins? if so, you may want to get some of them, as when you are fiddling with it, working out how it all works, you may break one.

    That design does use an air cylinder, it pulls the chain to operate the handle. I guess it means there is less drilling on the machine to make the cylinder fit. There is no right or wrong way to do it, as long as it works. Mine is based on the...

    I guess it could be faster with a lube sizer, but there is no way hi-tek is slow. The main benefit i see is they are not sticky, and there is a barrier between you and lead.

    Nice job, you sure didn't waste any time getting casting with your new mould. You need to show up the "young kids" these days, many years of heavy lifting means i can lift more than i probably should. I'd like to have seen his face being shown up...

    Nice job! pretty well all made from old bits and pieces. Jmorris had an automatic tumbling setup like this too, simple yet very effective. How many do you dump in at once? I guess the only limitation is the motor power and what you can manage...

    Nice job, they look great. The only difference with mine is the fact he left the STI logos uncovered.

    Mine was running awesome, till someone (I) messed up a load and appears to have tried to push two 125s down the barrel at once *sad face* Bulged, but did not burst thankfully. Hard chrome finish looks sweet and i was under the impression it will...

    A mate got a cheap 686 in stainless years ago, it's good for a play with beefy loads, but vs a semi, there is no comparison. It's just there for practice and fun. I love doing my RO duties for steel and do the whole show clear, slide down, hammer...

    Sadly no, there was no shooting on that trip, was just a weeks holiday with the wifie. We had plans of going down south, but as soon as she saw that the weather was below zero, she said nope, head north! So we went to her friends place in Mackay...

    Australia post must have lifted their game, knowing where to send it with a blank label :) Great job working out what day to ship it so it would arrive this week. Was a nice trip up north, warmer than it was in Brisbane, that's for sure!
