    Jonb - I missed that in the original post with photos. You're saying the brass from the cylinder that blew apart still looks good? That is interesting. I don't know anything about the Judge - but do the cylinder walls look any thinner than a...

    The only bargain I ever found at a pawn shop was the exit door. They usually make a better profit on buying and selling than most retail sales. I do enjoy perusing their wares though to pass time and always hope to see something they mispriced. ...

    It's a Taurus. Poor quality from end to end. It's no surprise metallurgy lacks as well as other qualities they don't have. Really sorry it blew up on you.

    The easy way to check the headspace is to take a fired cartridge measure the overall length of the case, and then push the primer part way out. Then you close the bolt on the case which pushes the primer back in and takes all the slop out. The...

    mold maker replied to a thread D-- cancer in Our Town
    Life is a terminal disease. Even Christ had to die. Spend the time you have left in support of those who are afflicted. The flip side of all this is that death isn't the end, but the reward for the past. Mom died at 92 from undiagnosed cancer...

    Problem is that the so-called learned are so intent on self-importance that they profess to already know everything and are just explaining it to us peons. We don't need them to accept Gods miracle and realize that he knew what he was doing at...

    I was gifted a three reel Toro Mower from a church when it was returned as too old and in too rough a shape to rebuild. It was in boxes, completely disassembled. I was 8 years old at the time, and within two weeks I had it reassembled. Dad was...

    .54 is the most popular in this area. .50 is fairly rare. I just finished a .53 Poor Boy a couple days ago.

    I disagree with removing it every time. That causes thread wear, and failure. Myself and other gun builders I know recommend only removing once a year for examination. Put them back in with anti-seize on the threads. The only reason to remove one is...

    The only reason why the press needs to hang over the edge of the table is to clear the ram. If the press is elevated 6" you can have it mounted farther to the rear. This is what I do with my plate mounting system. If you can imagine a Marlin...

    I have never seen such a thing as that pendulum thingy. I wonder which lawyer Lobbied for it? It probably can be removed and I would think that Mossberg would provide instructions on how to do it. Randy

    I got to this thread late but Artful already showed the video of my Hand Press which takes of a lot less space than anything I have seen on this thread so far. I started out in 1976 with my Rock Chucker mounted to a 2x4' piece of 3/4" plywood...

    It's my understanding that the wax used to be almost totally carnauba wax, but like everything else has been changed by the bean counters, to a plastic wax formula that works great for the cheese, but sucks as a lube. I saved over half a lb before...
