    Wife scored lead for me

    God Bless her. She made a craigslist score for me while I am over seas. She bought the guy out for 50 cents a pound. 510 lbs of wheel weights all ready sorted. I just have to sort it by COWW and SOWW. She even started going to garage sales and estate sales for me. She hasnt scored any tin alloys but i think this makes up for it.

    I havent scored wheel weights in almost 2 years because of laws, rules, and regs. An old mechanic is retireing and cleaning out his shop.

    Now i just need a little more and i will have a comftable stash to last a few years.

    You're a lucky guy in more ways than one, at a glance that looks like it's the good stuff. I'm happy for you all round.

    She's a 'keeper'.
    Everyone can learn from their mistakes.
    However; it's less painful, and cheaper to learn from the mistakes of others.

    Old age and treachery will always overcome youth, and skill.

    OK folks. Enough of this idle chit chat. This ain't no retirement home.
    EVERYONE!!

    My wife is always looking at the Market place posts on FB. I taught her to look at the pics for reloading books, tools, fishing & plumbing stuff. She brought me home an old toolbox full of bank sinkers from a tag sale once, $5.

    My wife is from new New Jersey. I have had to unbrain wash her. Lol her sisters and aunts are liberal snow flakes. They hate me now because of what i did to her. Its fine though, her dad is a retired Master Cheif. Him and I are like to peas in a pod.

    Got my wife scouring the Goodwill stores looking for pewter. When she finds some, I'll be as happy as you are with your score.

    Lucky man! And a great wife you have there.

    Although the woman Im with isnt my wife yet...she got a good score for me a few months back. One of her coworkers was getting rid of his reloading supplies and she locked in a deal for me at $140. When I went to pick everything up there was a thumlers model B, lee classic turret, redding die sets, uniflow+stand, lyman trimmer, brass, bullets, primers, powder and a few other items.

    I'm just happy my wife just smiles when I bring home more pewter or lead when I haven't even made a small dent in the stash I already have.

    That'll be the satisfying kind of sweat that comes out of a good job/deal well done.

    And, yes, 500# plus of lead would be hard on my back.
