    When I built my bench way back in 1995 I set it up with bread boards that slide into a series of slots in the front edge of the bench, a very similar system to what blind shooter uses. I have enough presses that I can have a separate press...

    I agree. I have had the same problem as #2, only with 222 cases. Unscrewing the die would allow the extractor to get a grip and eventually pull the case out, it worked though it was a slow process. I have a set of 310 handles that are made for...

    Is there a screw on the left side to lock the sprue plate pivot screw? I cannot quite tell from the picture. If not, then it is an original Ideal, 1st gen mould made prior to 1902.

    As an old, and retired Bullseye shooter, that is one nice gun. I would love to own it, but like I said retired and money don't go together. It's an excellent example of the early days of Bullseye shooting when the only good guns were reworked...

    Great stories. I not only hate coffee, I hate the smell as well. It makes me nauseous, thus I absolutely refuse to make it. Probably why I’m not married anymore.

    Minerat, that is where I was going, In think this project is going to fill a terabyte disk easily. It's also going to create a need for secure file back-up that I need to think about.

    Very good question and the answer is a bit expensive. There are scanners that have software to flatten the image, these are made especially for books, they work mostly OK. Or you have to fabricate a "V" device to place the book in, hold the...

    After some thought I decided against having a shop scan them. Many, many of the pages were stapled together before punching for the binder. Thus, there is a lot of hand work. I called Canon late yesterday and ordered the model referenced in the...

    Good advise, I think I'll check with my favorite print shop before I hit send with an order to Canon.

    Dapaki you are on to it. I have an idea to scan each binder into a single big PDF. I can make it available on line or offline easily. My major concern is scanner life cycle. I don't want to burn up three or four units getting through this,...

    I have one like that, It has a nut brazed to the frame allowing a slightly larger set screw to be used. It is not factory pretty, but it works well. I got it years ago from a cranky older gentleman who could be very short on patience with his...
