    Oldsman Master Caster Mod

    here is some pics on the build I just finish
    and note that my mastercaster is an older model and I made custom brackets for the lead pour cyl.
    and the bottom piece is thicker than the mastercaster piece to allow inside edge surface for weld too

    here some more pics on the rest of the setup
    instead of using inline t fittings I went with a manifold bock and the forth outlet of the block goes to the lube feed on the star sizer

    Hatch , I have it dial in now for 9mm 125 rn , made about 4000 so far

    I been getting about 600+ after culling out the defects out of 3/4 of a pot

    Cool deal.

    Remember the automation system isn’t about producing Boolits as fast as you can as it is more for making repeatable quality Boolits every time.
