    The bright side is that it is a hidden flaw that also won't show up on paper.

    If it was from fanning, why is there 8-10 dimples in rows between 3 chambers, with only a dimple on the edges of the other chambers? That don't make no sense. I would expect there to be multiple dimples between all chambers. Maybe the pawl...

    I have several lamps that I use occasionally and I need new wicks for a couple. Can anyone suggest a good place to purchase them? Anything in particular to look for in a wick? Thanks for the direction. Bazoo

    It looks like it except id expect it to be between all the chambers and not in such orderly rows. I will venture them to be machining marks. One with a lathe could probably cut a groove to remove it easily. I believe some single sixes came with...

    I got a pair of Mickey Mouse boots for 5 bucks at a yardsale a few years ago. Those things are amazing warm. The cold temps here don't get much below 20 normally. Only issue I've found is the air release knob is right in the way when setting...

    Sorry you had this disappointment. Sounds like the plunger on the bottom of the hammer was binding. Likely just debris in the hole. It's a common issue for Rugers and solved by cleaning out the hole well and polishing with some fine sandpaper. ...

    Thats a new one on me. But I traded most of my older RCBS dies off when I got my first Dillon. The older dies had a more square mouth, where the newer ones had more radius, making it easier to load on a progressive press.

    I probably would not smelt those new weights. I would put those nice clean new weights straight into my casting pot and just skim out the 4 clips per pound as they floated to the top. Cast_Outlaw, you have a sweet deal going! I would collect...

    Sounds about like how mine turned out. Except I didn't reduce the JPW down and re-add mineral spirits. I just melted JPW and LLA together and poured it into bottles. Aside from melting the bottles it worked well enough. Mine got hard in the...

    I flux my pot when starting or adding, regardless of how clean my lead is. There has been times I didn't flux when adding a few ingots, but I guess those ingots weren't super clean as I started having inclusions.

    I was thinking about how long 2 barrels of sawdust would last me. But if it was free or very cheap and I had the space to store it I would stock up too. I use a hand full, about a coffee cup full, when I'm smelting. I'll flux up to 3 times,...

    So glad to hear that you are doing well. But, not only honor that 10# weight restriction but watch out about over extending and any quick bumb, step, jolt, ect. Walking is probable your best exercise to recover from back sugary with.

    This is a pretty good place to start at. You might even be ok with less linotype. Lino is getting harder and harder to find. I would stretch it as far as possible.
