    That’s a tough one. It might be worth it to really spray it good with penetrating oil/kroil. I know you’ve already done this. Let it sit a bit longer. Then, if you can find an extractor/easy-out small enough, that might be worthy a shot. A word of...

    I’m rebuilding a Lyman 61 right now, near identical to the Saeco. It’s pretty straight forward. There’s a lot of info in here if you dig a bit. So far I’ve just been cleaning it up and repainting. I have only bought mica board, rockwool (insulation)...

    Dieter replied to a thread Lyman 61 question in Casting Equipment
    This one is actually in not too bad of shape, I’ve already knocked the rust off, cleaned and painted everything else. The mica board under the thermostat is falling apart, easy to replace along with the thermostat and add some rockwool. Wiring looks...

    I just snagged a 61 that’s in not too bad of condition, minor surface rust and such. I wanted to test it out, eBay purchase. It got up to temp pretty quick, it was only on for about a few minutes the shut off. It has the old style nomex type power...

    And this is smoke from the unburnt charcoal after I dumped the ashed over coals from the chimney starter over the top of the fire basket.... That’s what the PBC manufacturer designed it for.

    Love the stuff! When I got my new Ruger SRH .44, talk about gritty trigger pull. Yanked it all apart, like youíre supposed to do with a new gun. Cleaned it and sprayed trigger group down real nice with Ballistol. Let it soak for a while and wiped...

    I started off with RCBS and the pad. I’ve been using Imperial for a couple of years now. They have the wax and the powder. Both work quite well. I haven’t tried anything else since then.

    Thanks! I’m a huge fan of ballistol, other than the smell. Once the carrier evaporates, wipe away excess. It imbeds in the metals pores, keeps corrosion out and provides a slick surface. Kinda like a dry film lube. They won’t have boolit lube on...

    Initial view looks clean, a bit of patina. Are these good to lube with ballistol? Lightly? I have a soft spot for the stuff.

    I love mine, itís a 2016. Just turned 23k on it, not an issue. I still have the original tires, good for road but the mesquite will make quick work of them. I put duratracs on, good for the SW. I love those inferno orange Tacomaís, very pretty...

    To share the information, Jon and I were discussing the handle link and possible defects. Mine had high-metal on the ends of the links. However, the clevis for the handle and the one on the base of the unit, didn’t display any signs of displaced...

    Perfect! Thanks for answering that for me. I have a batch of Ben’s Red that I was going to use, once I get this back together, lube reservoir is giving me a fight. Being patient with it.

    No sir, all the holes are wide open. I saw Jon’s post on using solder to plug the holes on the older dies. They’ve been soaking for a while now in mineral spirits. I’m going to boil things today as recommended. I’m in the process of cleaning...

    I didn’t have much time to dedicate to this tonight, pretty busy. I did removed the ejector rod and held it up to the light, looks like minor junk in there—mostly old lube, it’s everywhere. I’m going to continue soaking till tomorrow am when I can...
