    Way Cool !!

    If you have enough, that stuff, along with some silver solder is the perfect material to make a still.

    Use the tailings for gas checks.
    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!!

    45workhorse was JOKING. That stuff is like gold! There are lots of guys here that would LOVE to have it. I don't even make gas checks and I would like some myself. It comes in handy for lots and lots of stuff.
    Don't throw it away!
    If no one else wants it PM me. I will be happy to take it.

    Cut it up in sheets sized to fit a sfrb and offer it in a PIF, but just don't throw it away.

    .011" would work well for 30 caliber checks.
