    Ahh, that's right, i remember you mentioning the torque wrench earlier, sorry i forgot about that. Another thing you can do is to add a limit switch so you can "zero" the machine every time it starts up. That way there will be one point that is...

    Good to hear you're working on it. How did you come to the conclusion that 30nm that the nema 42 will put out will be enough? are you running this motor as direct drive? If it's done with a belt, you can increase the torque by changing...

    Shows you have been coating for way too long, i still measure and time mine. I can tell by looking of they are cooked or not, if they look sticky, they need longer. When you get a whiff of the smoke of when they are curing, i know i have about 5...

    When you find one that works for you, no reason to change it. I started with 122 red and K15 black. I had a few issues with 122, only because i tried to cook too many at once, and you could see between coats that some were far lighter than others...

    I have found the same thing, the fewer grooves, the easier they drop out. Have you tried different coatings with the same load and projectile? It would be interesting to see if a regular non metalic will also keep your barrel lead free at these...

    You will always have hot spots in an oven, that's why you make sure to tell people to enure the load reaches 180c for at least 2 minutes. I get slight black marks on my acetone wipe tests, but i know that this is just dust from when they were...

    I have heard of people using a very low charge and a pile of rags to capture a soft projectile to measure it. The issue is, i get told that if you go too low you can cause pressure spikes, not sure if that's true or not. I too don't like the idea...

    I get my oven to temperature, load the trays in, then start the 12 minute timer. I'm mainly running K15 black, so getting the colour right, really isn't an issue :) With the 122 red, i get pretty consistent colours using the same method. If i...

    I bought 122 red, i had in my head that it was a bright red, turns out to be red to purple, looks awesome, just not what i expected it to be. If you cook it longer but at a slight;y lower temperature, you may get closer to the desired colour.

    That's great news that you seem to be in the clear now. The sad thing is, people do light fires just because.... They either don't understand how bad it is, or just don't care that it puts property and lives at risk. I never thought embers...
