    I learned a lesson about Jeeps from the 1980s. I owned a couple of them. The way the suspension is designed, it's kind of a backwards design that it makes you feel all the bumps. My Boss at that time was a 4x4 off roader in the 70s and he...

    Umarex Octane Home-Made Piston Seals. I cast up the last of my prototype Piston Seals this morning and it looks like they are going to work out well. I still have to test them but I can see no reason why they wouldn't work. Pictured in the...

    I bought some vintage boxes of extruded Lead alloy wire for swaging. The boxes were marked 97% PB and 3% SB. As I understand it, 97-3 that's been extruded is work softened and is nearly the same hardness as pure lead, until it is melted or heat...

    I moved your post and renamed your title. A WTB post needs to be in this forum. If you want to start a discussion about casting or loading cast, please do that in a different section as we don't allow general discussion on S&S posts. Good...

    There are hundreds more things to be said. But, as to cutting dies, I thought Duke put it well and I wouldn't simplify his words as much as you have...without adding that you will likely need to discover your own secrets. If you have a talent...
