    The one i linked him to, came with a 40a ssr and K thermocouple, so i assume it was the SSR version, if not, i'll tell him how to modify it from relay output.

    hehe pid for dummies, i like it! If you get stuck, just give me a yell. As already suggested, i'd wire the PID into the heating circuit, not the fan, so it still circulates air when the connection is broken by the SSR. Take the cover off the...

    Sure can, just wire it up to the heating element(s) and not the main power plug. Only try it if you are confident in how to wire up electrical devices though.

    In the sun or with a torch, you should see flakes if it's metalic, if none are seen, it will not be metalic. As for what speed you can get, i can't help you, If the are gas checked, you can push them a fair bit harder than plain based ones.

    I have tinkered with attempting to recover gold and silver from old computer scrap, the research i have done on the internet has pointed out that to dissolve base metals, you actually want dilute acid. When the metal is being dissolved, it needs...

    A guy at my range said he cures at stupidly low temperatures too, like 100c, he said it was Hi-Tek, but i'm not so sure it actually is or not. Hi-Tek needs the higher temperatures to do it's linking, as did my old coating, if it's not hot enough for...

    Most of the ones i get every so often are lead, there are the odd zinc ones, but not many at all. There is the odd steel one as well, but easily spotted. If the price is right it doesn't bother me if i get some that are not suitable.

    Joe posts it internationally, so i see no reason why not. It is in powder form, so not dangerous goods.

    I think i understand it now, the mould carriers are mounted to a chain and the blocks are tight tolerances to keep the mould halves closed? I never thought of a way to do it without the magma style wheel covered in moulds.

    I didn't even think of the fact that after it passes through the paper, it will split open when hitting the backstop or dirt. The guys that want slugs done, i'm not sure they are going to reload as such, they hope to cut the crimp off, remove...

    Good point, best have it break up. What targets do you use them on? For our shotgun area, we really can only shoot clays (not an option for solids) and paper, we have no steel poppers on that range that we can use them on.

    Sure gives an awesome coat with being thinned down. Those look like a real mean slug. They sure would make a mess of anything they hit.
