    I was using a lyman big dipper until the heating coil burned out. Strongly considering Turning some scrap aluminum to fit tight, and fill the bottom half of the pot.

    Guilty here! found the last two replacement batteries in junque drawer. Already ordered the old school gage. Would rather have a needle gage anyway. Faster to get a reading, no little LED light shining at the target, no battery aggravation. Those...

    Ok, That's funny because it's so true. I'm on GTA too. And happy new owner of an EDgun Matador. A FX would have to be pretty cheap to tempt me
