    Lyme Away will remove lead oxide, not sure what that chemical does to the lead oxide in terms of does it change it so it is less toxic when water is dumped or simply remove the lead oxide from the lead and leave it suspended in the water. Won't...

    Lee equipment is like a good women. Gets the job done that needs doing, just enough "character" to keep it interesting, surprises you every once in awhile with something new and innovative. All without costing you an arm and a leg. As an added...

    What is that large thing that seems to be holding up the shelving legs? Is that floor I see? Nah couldn't be! Reloading rooms don't have floors, do they? Just a wall to wall "bottom shelf" is my understanding of it.

    Yeah I have to sometimes bite my tongue on inscribed pieces to not ask is that the price if my name or initials are the same? Or do you expect me to pay that much of a mug that is inscribed "Susan Smith 1983" since the mustache should be first clue...

    Nooooo! Don't go to the dark side. :-) I use a 20# Lee pot and a Lyman little dipper. I think a 10# pot would be more prone to temp variation of getting hotter as lead is used and colder when material is added. I would guess they would heat...

    The Lee Pro Auto Disk with the Titan micro disk can do very small charges. The deluxe PPM should be able to handle small charges, it uses drums and I use the Auto Drum and find it very consistent, but haven't tried it on really small charges. My...

    Paypal maybe less than supportive of 2nd Amendment rights than one would like so it gives me a special warm fuzzy feeling to sell a box of lead for casting boolits and get payment through them and then donate here with the proceeds using Paypal. ...

    A "good" pawn shop doesn't want to sell merchandise they want to loan you money and have you repay with interest. The goods are just collateral for the loan. You buy a car from a reputable dealer they don't want the car back they want you to make...

    Why I do believe you are suggesting going around stupid rather than butting it with your head. You're right. As long as Amazon doesn't have a flag to say banned or prohibited you can just bypass the idiots. Eye on the prize. Eye on the prize.

    Bass Pro always seemed to have unobtainable powder during the shortage. But it was for the same reason scalpers have tickets to the game the price was more than most would be willing to pay. Free ship to store, no hazmat and a friend needed...

    Also found out that the second hole for the center support of a MEC 650 is to move the tools up for 3" hulls so looking forward to that being an option.

    Little bit of an update. I took these to a members backyard range along with a 20 gauge MEC 650 that he help me adjust. I can say with certainty all of those 20 gauge crimps fired and really no noticeable difference in pressure signs or recoil. ...

    I flux, otherwise what would I do with the three banker boxes filled with planer shavings? I still find a bit of crud makes it through now and again so I figure fluxing cuts down on that and less crud is better. Ladle cast so the bottom pour...

    I size before PC for rifle bullets because I'm pressing a gas check on. So them being already sized isn't a problem unless the PC makes them oversized, then just size them again. They will push through size fast with PC on them. The lube may...

    The small barrel flashlights that are often Free (or dirt cheap) from harbor freight are a good deal. The original batteries are cheap junk BUT you put a decent set of Alkaline batteries in them and they are really very good. The blue ones...

    RogerDat replied to a thread NOE Molds in Casting Equipment
    You can also pull the mold handle off, and put some JB Weld inside the hole, then press on and smooth the excess around the ferrule. Works well, is easy, and doesn't require a tap for those that don't have them. Not as elegant as tapping the mold...
