    I used a humidifier because I had one and it worked quite well. For commercial use a fogger made for purpose is a lot more powerful and a much better choice. Of course the cost is difference for a commercial fogger is quite a bit more. Consan...

    If you have confirmed that it is really 390 degrees and will hold that temp I would use it and just add time. But I would make sure the thermostat will actually hold 390 or does it drop to 350 or whatever. If that is the case I would shop for...

    You are absolutely correct! If the alloy is in the pot and you never heat the pot there is little to worry about. But if you heat the alloy and it becomes molten it is now hot enough to transfer molecules to whatever is cooking off.

    So far my understand is digesting the virus in not a problem; it does it's damage in our respiratory system. As far as sterilizing masks, just use UV or simply wet them thoroughly in a Consan mix and dry, then store masks in sealed plastic bags. ...

    Consan diluted does not degrade. Lab test do show mixing Consan with distilled water has a slight advantage in making it more effective. As I understand it Consan compound breaks through a fat coating this virus and destroys the virus. Things...

    A 3% solution of Hydrogen Peroxide will work, but according to EPA lab test it takes about 2 minutes exposure time.

    I have never used this product, but the listed compound, dimethylbenzyl ammonium chloride, according to the EPA, many other labs and my Nephew (LOL) it is extremely effective in destroying the Covid-19 virus on contact. If I had this product I...

    Realize all those combustible things placed in the casting pot do burn and send off fumes. Lead doesn't vaporize at casting temperatures, but it just as well have because those fumes have molecules of Lead that have hitched a ride and are now...

    I am now pretty sure the Consan manufacture's recommendation of 10 minutes wet time is an across the board time for all applications, including mold spores and not for the Covid virus. My nephew is a Chemist and he said the compound in Consan will...

    That is what they say, and I think that is posted as a CYA, but the EPA and other labs have said a sanitizing mix of Consan will destroy an encapsulated virus (Covid-19) in under 5 seconds after contact. I personally read the lab report back in...

    I said I have been using Consan for 50 years, but just yesterday I learned something new. A neighbor asked me if Consan would be a good choice to spray the exterior of her house, patio, wood fence, etc. then follow up with pressure washing. I said...

    You will notice from the MSDS sheet that when it comes to toxic chemicals Consan ranks in the lowest category for chemicals.

    I don't know if the heat from a fogger would alter the effect of primary Consan ingredients or not. it a good question and I will see if I can find an answer. I have used the Consan mix in ultrasonic humidifiers, which produce a cool mist fog of...

    You will probably be OK, but when the air temp in the oven reaches 400, your bullets can still be a long way from that when you are cooking 1500. In my PID controlled 30" oven with two 220 V elements maintaining a constant 400 degrees several...

    That is exactly how my modified tumbler works just with a larger flat bottom. The bullets, powder and BB's roll and circulate in a rotating motion and are not pounded on top of each other. The coating is more uniform and not as fragile as those...

    I tried using 3 different vibrator tumblers and had the same problem, too aggressive. Tumbling the bullets where they are tossed around in a container didn't work for me either. My bucket tumblers work and do an excellent job coating hundreds of...

    I personally have fired PC pure lead in handguns in excess of 1400 fps., never tried it in a rifle. It is the copper jacket that withstands the torque of spinup in a standard jacketed bullet, not the soft inner alloy. I think the key for PC rifle...

    I am still using the TM-902C Digital LCD Thermometer I got off Ebay for $3 back in 2012. I did have to replace the K probe I used for the casting furnace. I have since bought a couple more as well as several thermocouples so I can monitor multiple...

    A big oven is where one or more thermocouples are of great benefit. My 30" oven does a great job and I do thousands of bullets in a single cook, but you would be surprised at how long 5K bullets takes to come up to temp after the PID reaches 400...

    Every gun barrel is or can be slightly different even in the same model gun. So you can just guess at what your OAL length needs to be, like most, or you can easily determine your ideal OAL for every bullet design you have and for every gun you...
