    I use aluminum oxide lapping compound for roughing (Clover Leaf / Loctite) brand. Starting off with 220 grit, then 400 grit and finally with 600 grit. And finishing with 800 and 1000 grit diamond lapping compound. Being a lot cheaper, the...

    2wheelDuke replied to a thread Plans for the 4th? in Our Town
    Normally I have to escort the fireworks barge on the 4th, but that's been cancelled. And the beach is closed so I won't be playing Baywatch either. I still have to work a 12 hour day. I'd like to celebrate later, but I may be pretty well out...

    Loctite "RC/680". Cylindrical high strength retaining compound works best. It will fill gaps up to 0.015". I've used it to reline a number of barrels without any problem. Not as messy as AccraGlas or any other epoxy based products. RRR

    2wheelDuke replied to a thread Echo Chainsaws? in Our Town
    It's hard to go wrong with any of the decent models of the "orange" saws. I look at what the pros around me use. They're mostly Echo or Stihl, with a few on Husqvarna. I got tired of fighting with garbage brands and got some Echo stuff to...

    I'm thinking it may matter if you're using a bottom pour pot or not. I fill the cavity furthest from me first, and keep the pour going until the cavity nearest me is filled. That's "pushing" the mold further under the pot. After the last cavity...

    I saw some references to that. I have a couple worm weights that are tiny, but I mostly fish salt water, and it's rare that I use a sinker under an ounce. A friend of mine sells sinkers that are as heavy as 15 POUNDS for deep-drop saltwater...

    I tried to look it up, but I couldn't find anything on any bans. I live in FL, and drift nets have been banned for a long time. Given the destruction they were doing, I have to admit that I'm glad they are. Congrats on the score. I've...

    I've had one about a month now. It's great for decapping, bullet sizing, and push thru sizing. An automated feeder would really be amazing. I also tried reloading some 10mm with it as a glorified single stage just to see how it'd work.
