    I'm sorry if I sounded like I was accusing anyone here of being a "Self-Appointed-Know-It-All." Generally speaking the castboolits forum is one of the most idea-friendly internet sites I've ever come across. I think this is in large part because...

    Do you have faith? Eventually all things will end. At that time all the wealth, food, and planning in the world wont prevent the inevitable. Infinity is just a dream of short sited people. Every morning I awake on the green side (while it still...

    mold maker replied to a thread Today's kids in Our Town
    I only had occasion to spank our Daughter twice and in her words, the idea that she had broken the trust between us was lots worse than the licks. My Son, on the other hand, required regular applications with the rod of wisdom. It seemed as if no...

    If your knowledge of collector coins is lacking, stay away. Common silver rounds and bars are rarely faked, and the value is tied to spot price. It still pays to stick with recognized mints. Everyone brings up the SHTF and while it isn't...

    I finally got the Carbon-Fiber 3D Print filament I ordered off of Ebay about a month ago. Now I have to figure out the correct temperature settings to get it to print the way I want it to. These filaments generally come with recommended...

    SAFE is just a feeling like the pride you get for the money you spent. It has very little to do with keeping determined thieves from your valuables. The cheapest locked box will keep curious little fingers away. Good insurance is money better...

    The idea that that amount of energy can flow through a tiny copper wire at that speed is mind-boggling, but it's a fact we can't deny. While I understand the energy isn't contained within the wire, it follows its path like a train and its tracks.

    The Med flat rate box will hold more the 70lbs of ingots, but 70lbs is the maximum USPS will allow you to ship in one. With tight fitting ingots, you can fit 20 lbs of ingots in a small flat rate box, and you can fit 6 small flat rate boxes in a...

    Tip the mixer to the point that lead ALMOST exits with the water. The mixer action will release most of the clay and the outflow of water will carry it away. I used this method on several tons of range scrap in dense NC red clay. The resulting...

    I have had the banana, and it was awesome. I think they just soak some bananas in it for a while, and you get fine bits of banana suspended in the shine. I had grape that was the same way. Had little floaties in it.

    Looks great! The Nigri is one of my favorites. They have one at my favorite Chinese restaurant called "Shaggy Dog" roll. It has a "mane" made of imitation crab sliced in to fine ribbons on top, with yum yum sauce over that.

    If there is air movement where you are casting or if you are casting outside in a breeze, then the pour spout can be susceptible to freezing.
