    In Melbourne, temperature can change hourly, hot to cold, or anything in between. Not sure it's 1 40f swing though. In brisbane, we never get below 2c, and maximum of about 42c, so a swing of about 70f over an entire year, not a daily change like...

    Hopefully we missed the worst of it. We had 36, muggy as, time to find some ac. I'm sure people will understand that weather slows some things down. Snow storms in the USA, heat wave here....

    Jeez..... That is not fun at all, i'm complaining about our day times mid 30s and night temps of 25ish I hope you get some cooler weather soon, with heat like that, you are confined to your house. I fear your power bill too, but you have to do...

    I have been lucky enough to not be sprayed with Hi-Tek per se, yet i did manage to knock over some that I was just starting to dissolve, 40 grams of powder and a bout 50 ml of acetone was in before i managed to knock it over and hit the floor, so it...

    So very true. I get the same pressure build up when coating woth a closed container. Shake shake, carefully open to let the pressure out then seal and finish shaking, then dump out

    Still not working for me :( I can understand why the moud guides need to be hardened, it will make them last a lot longer.

    Thank you for the specs you have, it looks like only one image worked though. now it makes sense why it has a higher production rate, 10 moulds! Sure puts my automated master caster to shame, as it has only one mould :(

    Good to hear you beat it and are still with us. I like the 1911 STIs, the only thing i didn't like was our 10 round limit, getting a full mag to lock in on a closed slide could be a struggle. The 2011 takes care of this with it's double stack...

    The tool-less guide rod is awesome, i have one in mine. The hard chrome will be a great addition. Good way to take up any wear that it may have too.

    I totally agree, lighter means you can move and stop faster on target. I never thought about the slide forward movement, i only thought about the recoil pulling the muzzle upwards, but it makes complete sense. I must have been lucky with mine, i...

    Did you find the lightning helped much? I have a 2011 executive, it has a bull barrel, quite heavy but it does pretty well with controlling recoil. I find a mad mates glock bounces around a fair bit, i suspect because it's lighter. I can see it...

    I do three coats on the exact same lead without issues. I could get away with two coats, but i go for a third just to be sure and make them "pretty"

    Ahh, timers may not be as easy to match, but you can use generic ones but as you said, you need a diagram to know what switches what. Worst case, a good electrucian could help out, or someone good with electronics. Timers are quite simple,...

    I have indeed been busy, but the commercial boys will have way more than that up their sleeve :) I remember the issues you had with your toaster oven, shame it caused so many issues, but at least you worked it all out.

    You can try CBE in Australia: http://www.castbulletengineering.com.au/bullet-moulds/pistol/35-and-9mm-calibre?Page=2&Items=12 You will probably need to get them machined to fit your machine though. Worth asking their advise.

    I use an old free standing oven from the in-laws, the elements for heating pots and pans on the top were burnt out, but the oven is just fine. It has cooked a good 400,000 projectiles. People are always upgrading their ovens, you should be able...

    About a 14 hour drive from me, i'm in Brisbane, north of Canberra. Trevor is south of me, so he has to be a fair bit closer, not that he wants to be, Canberra is where the politicians live, making all the bad dissensions we need to abide by (trying...

    I made mine from recycled parts. An old 44 gallon drum, an 80kg lpg (propane) tank and old timber for fuel. I cut a section of the 80kg tank about 1' long and welded it into a section of the 44 gallon drum. Cut a hole for feeding it fuel, and...

    That is some great coverage from two coats, they look great. Honestly, i have never noticed the smell after shooting hi-tek, the only smell i get is the powder, but i use AP100, 70 and 50, all are not real clean burning so it over rides any other...
