    Since I got a PID I've set it to 715*F. It'll overshoot to 730*F. and drop below 690*F. when dropping sprue cuts back in the pot. I like this temp. range and I don't overheat my moulds...just a steady pace and sprue cuts 3 to 5 seconds after the...

    Nice Jeff...see the ones that have a smooth sprew cut? You waited the right amount of time to cut the sprew. See the ones that are 'pitted' looking? You opened the sprew plate about 1 or 2 seconds too early. No big deal though. Can't complain...

    If it's money that's holding you up, we have a section here called 'Helping Hands'...I think, not sure...but you might get some help there from others who will share extra tools and things to help a Newbie. In this forum, from what I've...

    He didn't want the extra weight of the Uniflow on top of the Lee press...think it was because he thought it would wear the plastic thingie that rotates the press...don't remember exactly what he said motivated him. I'd rather put it on the turret...

    Start yourself a thread, explain what you just did and you'll have more help than you can imagine. This casting craft is like riding a bicycle...it's dang simple to get started...especially with wheel weights to work with.

    Good question...depends on how the PID references the signal, how it's coupled to the circuit within the PID. It's worth a try...you could temp one together and see if the PID's follow the temp. We used to use one speed reference signal to get...

    If your magazine follower is plastic, it may be worn so that it can't push up on the slide lock. Had it happen to me with another pistol.

    I'm having a bit of a hard time understanding the parallel you draw...however I do understand what that microfine residue does when it collects in the primer slide and grits things up. Since I'm not obsessed with the time it takes to prepare brass,...

    Holy Cow...those casts make the blocks look undersized! My first thought is that they will take longer between pours or some modified method of chilling the Pb (setting it on a moist towel or ?) because of the size difference, that's a lot of heat...
