    I have PM'd Miha with my questions about no email. I understand that he has had his own problems with this GB and I'm not pushing, but would like some response even if he has no mold for me. I'm not out any money and have my mold from the first run. A NLG mold would be nice to compare PC boolits with regular lube but it is not the end of the world to just PC the boolits from the mold I have.

    Go to the website and order one. lakehouse can give you the code to enter. You don't need a email to order one. I had to as the link he gave me locks up my computer or would not let me enter the code.

    1) I posted Miha's price as it was 9 months ago, I haven't gotten any price changes, so Miha has to comment further on this.

    I understand things happen. But this still has not been addressed. If shipping was included then that is the price that must be honored. Look through some of the other group buys and DHL shipping cost is not addressed in any of them either.

    This may need to be moved to moderators to discuss the recourse if nothing is said or done. If everyone is fine with the extra charge then whatever. Living on a very limited income I am not OK with the non response
    we are hearing on this.

    Yes, when I first got email notification I didn't even see it it was buried somewhere and I had to check the forum and search my email and there it was but like people have mentioned the price was higher than quoted so I wasn't sure what to do and I waited couple days and when I checked I noticed there was sale plus discount (it's not 20% it's 10%) and I placed the order and in one work week my mold arrived I was amazed, all the way from Slovenia!

    I forgot to wash the mold as I normally do and I didn't preheat either so for next 20 minutes, or maybe it's the lube got in the cavities. I was getting wrinkles, could be also the aluminum plate I added where mold is rested that kept draining heat. I decided to smoke the mold and voila it started casting good bullets, I was just blown away how I would open the mold and bullets would just fall out without shaking or tapping, I was glad I got no lube groove. The little problems I encountered is 1) the handle for cam lever kept coming off which I fixed later with a drilled hole and a set screw 2) the nut that holds the cam lever to the sprue plate kept getting loose which I observed later messed up the edge of that cam lever that rides against sprue plate. I am thinking of taking a punch and making a divot between nut and bolt from becoming undone but I don't necessarily want to make it permanent. I noticed that the bolt actually spins in the nut so it's not wonder it becomes loose. Any idea how to fix this? 3) the cut sprue was getting stuck to the top and flipping upside down and shaking would not drop and required me to pry with forceps I was using to drop it back in the pot, eventually it got better but not completely.

    I want to say, I am so impressed with this mold, I am hooked. Thank you Miha! I casted 1300 the first time and only had to stop because wife needed me.

    very happy to have received my mold today
    I washed it with solvent and then with water and soap, then I did three heat cycles in my electric oven and in the afternoon I will use it
