    The more I read about the issues with wet tumbling, the happier I am with my dry, walnut shell media.

    I can usually justify the cost of shipping by comparing it to what it would cost me to get in the truck and drive there. That being said, if I can do it for less, I will.

    Froogal replied to a thread Farmhouse style table... in Our Town
    You CAN do it. I am by no means a cabinet builder, or a furniture builder. My woodworking equipment consists of a worn out radial arm saw and a couple of bench top table saws. I simply made up my mind that I COULD build a table, and since I had a...

    Froogal replied to a thread Farmhouse style table... in Our Town
    The kitchen table we were using was wobbly. I worked it over and made it a LOT better, but we still didn't like it. Couldn't find a NEW kitchen table that we liked, so I decided to just build one using the salvaged lumber from the garage that we...

    Geez. Now you guys tell me that a propane tank cut in half works good. I already used the one I had for target practice. It is pretty well ventilated.

    I installed some BRIGHT lights over my reloading my bench. I examine each and every shell after dropping the powder. If it looks good, I then set the bullet onto the case, and then place it in the reloading tray.

    Froogal replied to a thread Shell catcher in Our Town
    I just let them hit the ground, pick up what I can find easily, and then use a metal detector to find the rest. I tried spreading a tarp out on the ground, but those empty shells do not all go in the same direction.

    I just use a couple lengths of heavy wire, bent into an "L" shape. Hold one loosely in each hand, with the wire pointing forward and start walking. When you approach the buried line, the wires will cross. Mark that spot, and then walk further, turn...

    Froogal replied to a thread Mining lead in Lead and Lead Alloys
    I've been curious about it myself, even though I have no intention of actually mining for lead. Galena, Illinois was once famous for lead deposits. Has to still be some there if a person wanted to work for it.

    I have only a few sizing dies. I store them in the original packaging and hang them on a peg on a pegboard.

    The Alox tumble lube works good for .38 and .357. Never tried it on anything else. For my .45 Colt, I have settled on the SPG lube. This after trying several different homemade concoctions for pan lubing and every single one was simply frustrating...

    I encountered some of those same issues with the buildup, so now I regularly disassemble and clean ALL of my reloading dies.
