    Something's wrong...... well, you know that {g}. Have you checked your TC/PID setup in a pan of boiling water? Should be right around 212F. Perhaps that deep pan you mention is holding the heat? For proper operation the TC tip (tip only) must...

    I survived all the bad habits and unknown dangers of the 40s, 50s and 60s without any ill effects, that are traceable. Either I was tough, or lucky. I carried mercury in my pockets, cast lead soldiers, ate peanuts, road bicycles without a...

    Just like with presses and lube sizers, I have enough and then some. You never know when you'll do something foolish or one will break. Over the years I've collected bargains.

    I am an older item to some, and I do use some antique tools in reloading. I have also retired some in favor of newer more robust machinery. That said, I also occasionally shoot an Eli Whitney revolver in 32 rimfire. Does that qualify?

    When they call and say the call may be recorded, I stop them right there, and tell them they don't have my permission to record me. They have no idea how to respond, and hang up.

    Harter 66 I know what you intended, but your statement of dropping "half way to just like the factory" could be dangerous to a new caster/ reloader. Nothing less than a complete "PLUNK" is aviseable to a new loader.
