    OK, I guess I'm officially old ... I remember buying some of those "old" treasures when they were still new on the sporting goods store shelves ...

    I may have passed my "Best Before" date, but I haven't reached my "Expiry" date!

    Nice find. The painted RCBS die boxes were before I started reloading.

    You think you are old. My first RSBS dies came in green cardboard boxes.

    I WISH I had a picture of my old smelting / pour pot, held 20# or so and fairly sure it was a Saeco pot; Bottom pour. Used it on an old Coleman stove (we knew which one as the grid bars had bent a smidge under all that weight.) Cast a LOT of boolits with that beastie

    "Vintage"? Most of the stuff on my shelves is from the same time period! Watch who you're calling old.......I'm only 61 but I also use a Tru-Line Jr press!

    I just observed the 31st anniversary of my 39th birthday, so I guess I’m officially an “old fart” but I still claim the right to call most of the stuff shown in this thread as “current” at least it is in my shop!
