    GhostHawk replied to a thread Eero wifi gadget or not in Our Town
    Way back when when we had 2 laptops running wifi, + 2 phones + 2 Amazon Firestick's I put a booster down by the modem. Then bought the bigger square Fire TV with a lan port, and ran a wire to it, another to my laptop. No more problems. But it...

    Paper towel or anything will work. Just anything to cut over will work. Any drill or electric screw driver with a bit driver head will work. I even snapped the shell holder into a bit driver to save my hands on small batches. Sent from my...

    I use the Lee system. Lock the base in small hand electric screw driver. A hand drill was to o big and loud. Using it at midnight trimming brass got me in trouble a time or three.. The screw driver is one of those little Black Deckers that plug into...

    I have found that working in an enclosed garage is not desirable when casting. There will be small amounts of smoke even with an electric pot when you add flux, even if you light it it is still better to have open ventilation. My setup in Florida...

    I ran with just a pair of the 10 round mags for 30 years. But the old girl does seem to like the 25 round BX mags also. My buddy has a couple of the drum type, never seen him get through more than 15 rounds yet without a problem.

    If you create as 2 parts the "shell holder" and rod and put a set screw than you can swap out punches for different bullet profiles. If you're careful you can make a snug fit without the set screw, the pressure is applied only one way. You can...

    I was flat pointing some Lee .312 185 gr cast to load for a Win 94 lever gun. Drilled a hole in a piece of solid plastic about an inch thick. Then reversed the drill in the chuck. Put a thin piece of steel over the hole in the desktop drill...

    I won't lie. I am bad. I dont wait for it to dry. I fill the pot. Light the fire. Apply a lid and sit in a lawn chair listening to music (gotta make sure the neighbor hood kids stay away). The water will all cook off before it melts. I have started...

    As it was mentioned the cast iron pot with lid makes a huge difference and bacon grease to flux with. At some point I collected a quart jar thinking I might use it for bullet lube. The wood will char and release wood gas which will escape and burn...

    Rather than fight diminishing returns I switched to .32sw long revolvers and .22mag. Less recoil, less noise, less powder and lead required, and a pleasure to shoot with old well used hands/wrists.

    I started with Lee Double Cavity's, and I'll admit I wore a couple molds out, trashed them mostly due to lack of knowledge. Well along the way I discovered this place and got some higher education. Started figuring out what I was doing wrong....
