    I hope you ordered the H&G 50, 8 banger in Aluminum! I just bought a H&G 50, 6 banger, steel, front hinge handles....OMG it's heavy! Had to redoo my rest under the Lee 20# pot so it would fit all the way through on an angle due to the overall...

    Why not get a mould that cast cores the size you need? Then when sizing you wouldn't be elongating them and having the possibility that they could banana somewhat? These Lee dies don't support the sized portion of the cast body going straight as it...

    None of our Farriers ever carried anything like this...it's neither a good anvil nor a good vise but it looks interesting. Might work out in a garage shop so long as you didn't need to open it too wide for anything. Just a rusty old piece of...

    A partial area in metal where you cast or work with solvents or any other activity that would mar the other selection. Make the underlayment thick and dense. Want to stop press flex? Mount your presses to 1/4" plates that are at least 2" larger...

    PM Gtrubicon...Nobody on Earth fabricates & installs finer Granite Counter Tops. He can advise you which granites to avoid also how to prep for the Granite installation. I'm not prejudice just because he did mine...;)

    I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: "Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?" ISAIAH 6:8 When we talk about the call of God, we often forget the most important thing, namely, the nature of Him who calls. There are many things calling each of...

    Funny, but true huh? My Dad used to talk with Mom about vice work in the SO...as a kid I couldn't imagine what a bunch of Cops did with a vise. Maybe cuff a prisoner to one and threaten to chunk him in the Houston Ship Channel? Talk or swim skum!

    Other than my magazine disconnect issue, I love the LC9S pro, even put some talon grips on it for better grip. I downsized to a LCP II just cause its easier to disguise in dress slacks.

    I look at it differently and I don't put too much emphasis on any one distraction to your production numbers. Distractions are just problems to solve in the average garage loading room. We haven't the need for a 5 gallon bucket of rounds by the end...

    You can prolly answer your own question if you think about it some... Say, someone is forced to or has gone voluntarily to hand priming for his progressive. How does this one aspect affect the output or the value of the press? Once the shell...

    I'll bet you have great success with this machine. You will have an intimate understanding of exactly what's going on within the machine as you pull the handle...I think that's part of the reason others couldn't live with it.
