    You will have plenty of power no doubt! Lowering the element may also make the hearing characteristics of the pot more uniform which helps your pid operate more precisely. Probably not a big deal though. Nice build for sure.

    That Track of the Wolf mold is a Lee 6 cavity .31 caliber ball. Essentially muzzle loader mold that makes #1 buckshot. The group buy molds will be 8 cavity available in #1, #00, #000, and I think #0000 (38 round ball) Depending I think on getting...

    Yep brass prep is a pain Crimped primers are sort of harder to tell coming out. As someone mentioned the crimp can hold it tight while the pocket itself is loose. A go no-go gauge would be useful. I use the CH4D primer pocket swager to remove...

    Pretty neat build. I do have a concern about the heating element location. The pot does conduct heat well, but it seems like when the alloy got low it would get more difficult to effect heat transfer from the element to the pot and to the alloy. ...

    Without a doubt pewter is generally and easy sale in S&S forum. Good product for shipping. SFRB holds enough that the shipping isn't a big part of the purchase. You should be able to fit 10# of pewter in a SFRB and have enough form that sale to...

    Actually not too well and only certain kinds. Friends haven’t had much luck with them and you never see an apple orchard. Peaches are another thing entirely. Grow like weeds and overbear like crazy if not pruned and thinned and the frost doesn’t get...

    You have a really tough situation there, and with 400 lbs. to dispose of it will take tons of lead so... out of the goodness of my heart and only out of concern for your well being.... I will let you ship a couple of 65# boxes to me. That way you...

    Yes I have, and in 38 special for sure and I think some .357 mag also. Worked fine. Don't recall the load but can look it up. Just have to be careful since it is concentrated, easy to double charge without load in the case looking much different....

    There was a clamp type tool used for pinball machines as I recall which was for sale. Air riveters have an anvil piece that has a donut shaped divot & pin on the bottom and dish shaped head on top and those were a replaceable parts. Maybe...

    Surprised and saddened by this news. Liked his posts, was blessed by his encouragement in my own brass reforming endeavors. He will be missed here and I'm sure in his family and community.

    The loss is great only because the love was great. I hope your heart will soon heal enough to let you savor the good memories without the pain making them unbearable.

    My deal was my peach tree. 27 gallons of peaches the week of July fourth. I made so many jams, canned peaches, and frozen pies. I am still peached out but my friends think it’s great. Mrs Fishman keeps taking my jam in to work to give away.

    If I were in that shape, I would let the bear do what it will outside and make sure my steel entry doors were dead bolted. Then I would rest and heal.

    Any reason you can't use a 4" grinder with a cut off wheel on that welded bolt? Or even a grinder wheel and just grind it down? Might want to use water frequently to keep any rubber bushing from over heating. If you don't have that tool they can...

    Yes, PSA has always done me right and they make good stuff. I really like my .308 ar10 and need to work it out a bit more come to think of it. I’m glad the storm spared you and yours.
