    I wish I could drop them, but I don't have anything with them. Bank of America is in talks with gun companies...Now that bank will lose my business if they go this route, guaranteed.

    I had one of the older turret presses, and reloaded all my calibers with it. I got the bug to "upgrade" to the classic cast and found one here in the S&S section, am sure glad I did. I had way too many 3-hole turrets, and really only use three...

    I've seen those and considered getting them along with the rail they sell to hang them on the wall next to the press. Just concerned with having them open, TN can get quite humid sometimes and though now I am in the house, was in the shed, I still...

    I store them in the Lee Die boxes, the round ones and I use a label maker to label the top and sides of each container. Not my pic:

    That has been my litmus test when I get any new tools, the warranty and ease of getting a tool replaced. That was one of the reasons I went Craftsman many years ago for my first set, but now most every tool has a good warranty and many places like...

    Ah, no nothing that embeds a hook, one is a bullet weight mold, a split shot, egg, one that resembles the tail and body of a plane, tail probably wraps around the line, and a four sided eggplant shaped tie-on. I know my other ones and don't have...

    I had the same thing happen with Snap-on and Craftsman, the tool was discontinued and was replaced with a "like" tool. One was a come-along, I bought a craftsman for what I could have purchased two or three of the brand it was replaced with. Kobalt...

    What does one look like? I just picked up five molds, I wanted the split shots but they came as a bundle.

    I have a couple craftsman sets, before they were made in China, but I also have a few cheap tools. They're all made in China nowadays, and most have lifetime warranty so why pay more for tools I'll only use a few times?

    I put some 2 cycle oil on the rod, makes it easier to pull out. I have a couple do-it and a few lil mac molds, mostly split shot, egg and bullet sinkers. They last quite a bit so it's a long time between casting sessions.

    I have the Forster and the Lyman, the Lyman is faster to change cases. Both work good, but I mainly use the Forster to do the outside neck turning.

    Omega replied to a thread How to delete old photos? in Our Town
    Ok, had a couple with no check box and did some sleuthing. It appears you can't delete the ones in closed threads. I had one I closed (I was OP), I reopened it and the box appeared again. So it may have nothing to do with the title since I had a...
