    Pro Melt 2 is less expensive and comes with a PID to boot. I will keep my original Pro Melt. Made in USA.

    For their safety, keep your pets out of any area where there might be metal chips on the floor. I don't let Timber in the shop. If you have a good sized air compressor, consider a spray mister. On the mill, I prefer them to using flood coolant.

    Doubleg, The only issue I see at this point is that the LFN (Long Flat Nose) bullet may be overly long for the magazine. Have your tried it? I took two white tails last Fall with a 280gr Wide Flat Nose fired from my 77/44 at 1750fps. Both...

    Put a 10% federal tax on the 26.1 billion American dollars that individuals in the U.S. send to Mexico in wire transfers each year. Think 10% is too much? Sales tax in the city of Los Angeles is real close to that. Yep! Belongs in The Pit.

    While it hasn't been in use as a center-point lube since I think the early half of the 20th century, I think I still have a small can of "white lead" somewhere in the shop. How's that for going back in time?
