    No truer words have been spoken, unless your gun is having an off day, then the day contains a few too many choice 4 letter words.

    ****, now that sure is tight! I'll keep that in mind when i try and hit him up for a favor, i'll be sure to catch him when the planets align and he is in an awesome mood. We have a bloke at the range that gets made fun of constantly, he has a...

    HAHAHAHA I don't know him very well, but from the chats we have had on the phone, i can see him doing that :) As long as he is on the mend, being sick sucks, being REALLY sick is far worse. Hopefully he doesn't whine too much to the nurses,...

    I like deals like that, you spend 1k on a bulk lot, then proceed to sell the un-wanted stuff bring the price down. Sadly i don't see many deals like that often :(

    My doctor used to always encourage patients to get flu shots every year. He never used to get one, till the year he did and was the sickest he had ever been. They are a good idea and work for a lot of people, but you hear about so many that get...

    If i had to figure in shipping and conversion, i'd have to be at about..... $1,700, and for that, i really don't have a whole lot to show for it. The magma moulds shipped with conversion run about 180 each, i have bought 9 i think so far, two lee 6...

    Thanks for the tips, just need to find some said jars and bottles. I do a third coat just for looks, i think if i used a metalic, i could get away with 2 coats.

    Can i ask what bottles you use? i am currently using old glass jars, but they don't seal well and when i shake, the stuff gets EVERYWHERE. I need to tape the lids when not in use or else the acetone evaporates and i'm left with dry hi-tek. It does...

    I too have had some really nice results from a thin base coat, then two heavier coats that mostly fill the lube grooves and pass smash and wipe tests. I could possibly tumble longer to try and get coating in the grooves to look "pretty", but it's...

    It doesn't mess with the application of hitek? I try and avoid any lube on the cast just in case. I have been using air tool oil to wipe on the cutter with success, for a time. Just not a long time....

    Sadly, some times yes. I soot the moulds with an acetylene flame wh ern it starts to stick. The main issue i have is lead build up under the sprue cutter. I can oil it and it does a few hundred but starts over. I can't just leave it alone I'd...
