    Evaluation of the RCBS Easy Melt casting furnace with PID

    Guys,

    If you subscribe to The Single Shot Exchange Magazine you can ignore this post since the article was just published in the most recent June 2018 edition. Otherwise, if youíre interested in a detailed evaluation of the RCBS Easy Melt casting furnace, click on the following link: http://www.texas-mac.com/Evaluation_..._with_PID.html

    texasmac- Rendering problems on latest FF, pictures covering text.
    I give loading advice based on my actual results in factory rifles with standard chambers, twist rates and basic accurizing.
    My goals for using cast boolits are lots of good, cheap, and reasonably accurate shooting, while avoiding overly tedious loading processes.
    The BHN Deformation Formula, and why I don't use it.
    How to find and fix sizing die eccentricity problems.
    Do you trust your casting thermometer?
    A few musings.

    Thanks for the link. Nice article. I hadn't thought about the cooling period needed under power so the fan and PID doesn't melt. I'll have to plan for that (perhaps with a timer), since I do like to go cast early in the mornings while waiting on the Mrs to get ready to go somewhere. I can't just put down the mold and pull the plug and leave.

    HandFireW8,

    I'm guessing you're using Chrome as you browser. Try control/+ (crt +) or control/- (ctr -) to change the image & text size.

    FF means Firefox.

    If page sizing "fixes" the issue, you have a bad combination of fixed and variable sized elements, poor choices of anchor points, etc.

    This is not 1996. Don't blame browsers or users. We are trying to help you here.

    Thanks for the comments. I don't have the computer/software background to figure out the problem. It's interesting that the problem exists with Chrome but not with Firefox or iexplore. It may be the website builder (Aabaco) software, but I'd love to figure out the root cause.

    Looks good to me. Thanks for posting this review.

    I have no issues viewing it in Safari, Firefox and Opera in both mobile and desktop modes on my phone. That being said itís a pain to read because itís certainly set up for desktop browsing while pretty much everything is set up for mobile viewing these days. Regardless, thanks for the review.
