    WTS moulds, LYMAN IDEAL and Mystery mold

    More stuff from the cave that I'm tripping over. I don't need any trades, that is what got me into much of this mess(unless its something I really can't live without). First "I'll take it" posted here has priority. Actual shipping by USPS, buy 2 and I'll cover postage. Payment by PP, check or MO.

    #1, Mystery mold, brass, handles attached, 3 cavity, all are slightly different versions of the same bullet, Best guess 150-180 grains, great shape, no locking screw on the sprue plate screw. Appears to be a .30 cal, I haven't cast with it, hoping someone recognizes it.
    Withdrawn from sale



    #2 Ideal 308241 hollow point, old style with handles made as part of the mold. Hollow point pin missing. GAS CHECK Nice shape, $40


    3# Lyman 31110, beautiful shape, 2 cavity, 100 gr rn plain base. $50 SPF



    #4 Lyman 311284, Beautiful shape, 2 cavity, rn gas check 210gr $50SPF

    #5 Lyman 311679, 195 grain semi-point, gas check, great shape $50SPF



    #6 lyman 311335, 200gr rn, gc, 2 cavity, good cavities, missing sprue plate and handle screws $40SPF

    #7 MODIFIED 311041, has had 3/16" or so machined off to plain base it, about 130gr, fp, nice shape, $40SOLD

    Are you sure about the ID number on #5? No listing for any Lyman/Ideal mold of that number?

    You don't mention caliber on your mystery mold.

    There is no 'right' that requires me to work for you or you to work for me!

    sorry, I haven't cast with it but best educated guess is .30. I was kinda hoping someone would recognize it.

    Your Mystery Mould looks like a Yankee. The three-banger version (or the two, for that matter) doesn't show up very often.

    Yankees had dowel-wood handles, rounded on the ends, and held on by thin wraps of wire in a narrow cut or slot in the wood. The handles and blocks were one-piece. Sometimes you can see the layout marks where the holes for the sprue plate screw, the stop and the set screw were located. Later ones were made by W. Rohrbacher, who took over the business sometime before WWII and sometimes stamped his name on the blocks.

    Yankee copied Ideal's designs, for the most part, and there are unconfirmed stories around about alleged "borrowing" of Ideal's tooling in the dead of night by Yankee's owner. Or maybe that he haunted Ideal's scrap bin and got the worn-out cherries that might have a last mould or two left in them. I think there's a link on the ARTCA Site to an article about Yankee moulds.
