    Iím not surprised by any of the charges, but I donít think the court can dissolve the entity because of the bad acts of its executives.

    I use boeshield T-9 for some things, but for things that fit in a 5 gal bucket I seal them up with VCI. Have been thinking about trying Dry Coat, just haven’t. Wax works okay in moderate climates, I wouldn’t rely on it.

    Hey @sixshot, just reread my post and I kinda come across as a horses behind. That wasn’t my intention, I wrote the post while doing the math on a post-it note, was really curious how much it would matter. While I reload mixed 9mm brass I scrap...

    People talk about this, but I wondered if it was really likely to be dangerous, so decided to try some math. The density of yellow brass is 0.306 lb/in^3 which works out to 131.5 gr/cc. Your cases were 11gr apart, which works out to a...

    It sucks up the media and returns it to a hopper at the top of the backstop, leaving the lead behind. Promise. Jim

    @Tazlaw, did anyone ever take you up on the 9mm brass? I have plenty of 45acp, but could use a box or two of 9mm.

    It is designed to work with a proprietary granular backstop material for which I do not know the density. It sucks up the granular material leaving the lead behind, unless you get aggressive with it and then it makes a heck of a racket as lead gets...

    JimB.. replied to a thread safe primer storage in Our Town
    Previous owner of mine knocked the joists out of a load bearing wall to make it “open floorplan.” Getting a new header in was no fun. Another house the builder used the wrong joists throughout, homeowners didn’t realize it until after the statute...

    JimB.. replied to a thread safe primer storage in Our Town
    I very strongly suspect it was because builders and general contractors were intentionally doing unsafe but not illegal things to make a buck. You’re right that homeowners do some whacky stuff, but then so do a lot of GCs.

    JimB.. replied to a thread safe primer storage in Our Town
    Agree in part. With large temp swings you may get condensation which will collect in the cardboard packaging causing the primer cups to corrode. They’d probably still go bang, but working with them would not be easy or fun. Easily avoided with a...

    I can get behind “refining” and do tend towards precision in language, it was just easy to be snarky.

    Really, I’ve been picturing all the members having ore crushers in their back yards, buildings with furnaces and big slag piles that they routinely dispose of quietly in local forests and fields. Just thought it was either so common that it wasn’t...

    Maybe take a spent 45acp case, leave the spent primer, tumble it super shiney, stuff a bullet in it, seal the bullet in with lacquer, nail polish, or super glue, then boil it in citric acid for a few hours or a day. Case will be nice and pink on the...

    I don’t find that a steel works very well for me with today’s knives. The knives are too hard and end up mostly sharp but a little chippy, I prefer a ceramic rod for them.

    There are folks that collect stuff, so there might be a small collector premium. For a user, lathesmith’s dies are functionally equivalent.

    I’m going to guess, and that’s all it is, is that it’s a kit assembled by a signmaker either for installation or repairs. The double-bevel flat chisel is often used for carving letters or round bits. I’m not sure if the thing that looks like a...
