    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...

    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.

    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...

    mold maker replied to a thread Coffee in Our Town
    I've started my day with coffee for over 73 years that I can remember. The only exception being three mornings before surgeries, but I made up for it before dinner. It's not a matter of want or desire, it's a necessity for everyone within...

    Man, I'd hate to have to remove a stuck boolit from 100' barrel. It would extend onto the neighbors' yard.

    As a boy, we used to burn car bodies to melt the lead off for race cars. The ground in that area was like pavement. There is a Wally World there now.

    The last of the Mom and Pop diners, as well as the last cafeteria in this county has closed. It's now fast food, chain stake place, or nothing. Just the memories make me hungry.

    Coins usually cost a premium over spot related to the grade and number struck. There is also always the unknown factor of how many have been melted. Silver rounds and bars of recognized source cost only a stated value over spot. The...

    mold maker replied to a thread Case Lub in Reloading Equipment
    All cases are de-primed and SS/citric cleaned. If required the pockets are swaged/reamed and flash holes cleared and beveled. Lanolin and alcohol lubed before sizing means no damage to dies. Trimming and chamfering leaves brass debris so cob...

    I knew exactly where to find my hammer when I saw the mayonnaise :roll: on the workbench. That was self-inflicted. My wife of 54 years, no longer fixes my mess, but she expects me to keep it to a minimum.

    Yep! The trays will hold lots more than the folded metal frame. I only use mine to separate brass by HS.

    Up to a lb overweight in an STM with ball bearings has been the norm for me, especially with rifle brass I usually process in large batches. Often the Thumblers needs a push start to get it going with the same load. The amount of citric acid is...

    I also used to get the red brass price because of the small amount of lead left on the jackets. I always figured it was just a way to reduce the payout more than an actual grade.
