    Meet the guys that are making it happen!



    Ken (on the left) is a master machinist and is like a bull dog when it comes to problem solving.
    Once he gets a hold of it he wont let go. He has been around machining all his life.

    Jared (on the right) is a organizer and keeps thing running in and out. Has the
    task of making sure every thing is planned out for the day and customers have
    a smile. He also fills the role as a machinist.

    A very diversified operation and with out them NOE wouldn't be.

    That's a nice looking VMC you have there & some nice looking parts. My compliments to the chef.

    ...Just one question though, why did you choose 2024 AL? I would have thought that 6061 would be more durable & not a whole lot more in material cost. I would think that 7075 would be even a bit tougher, but that stuff does get a bit pricey. All 3 alloys machine well in my experience, but the 2024 sometimes gums up my tools a little more. Does the 2024 have some particular property that makes it superior for use as a mold material, like a reduced thermal expansion rate or something? Or are the results from all 3 alloys just so close that it doesn't really matter that much? I'm not trying to break chops or imply anything substandard about your product. I'm just curious about why you choose that particular alloy.

    Again, those are some fine looking molds that you have there & your prices seem quite reasonable too. My hat is off to you for making a very nice product available to the masses.

    All 3 do very well in mould blocks.
    6061 has a tensile strength range of 20,000 to 42,000 psi.
    2024 & 7075 has a range of 30.000 to 63.000 psi.
    The thermal expansion is about the same for all three.
    We use it because it offers something that will hold up
    better than 6061 at a reasonable price.

    Thank you all for the complement's and best wishes.

    Swede do have some styles on hand in the system to cut when molds are ordered or do the customers have to supply specs from scratch?

    Have started a library of bullets so I have some.
    And we can handle customer specs also.
    Our strong point is group buys at this time.
    Single orders are a little hard to work in.
    That's not to say that in the future we will
    not be working them in.

    I got a chance to cast with that beautiful product you see above! Yes, it's a real peice of workmanship!

    I gave it a real going over, and a real work out, I think I cast 500 or so boolits from it.

    I'm in a few of the GB's too and can't wait for delivery!

    Take your moulds Temp.

    We offer the following tips to prolong the life of your mould:

    To season our moulds - Run it up to operating temperature (about 350 deg.
    to 400 deg.) and let it cool back down to room temp. Do this three or four times.
    This will give the alignment pins a chance to seat in. Our molds are engineered
    to operate at below 600 deg. Running aluminum mould hotter than
    necessary shortens their life substantially and can loosen the alignment pins.

    So how do you take the temperature of a mould?

    I use a LYMAN "candy thermometer".



    This was a mould that was up to operating temp. and casting good bullets.

    I very seldom run a mould hotter than 425 deg. but some run better hot.

    If you run your mould up past 500 deg. (600 deg. for certain) you will ruin the
    temper of the Aluminum. This is not just our moulds but any aluminum mould.

    Gee, I got a mould to review!

    ..............I was sent a 3 cavity 38 cal plain based SWC design of what looks to be about 158gr in a set of aluminum blocks by SwedeNelson of NOE. I have not had a chance to cast with it yet. I hope to in the next couple days. If it casts as good as it looks I suppose he'll get a check back instead of the mould There is no code or indicator as to what the cavity design is, but it doesn't matter for reviewing it. It does carry the neat NOE logo with the good ole U.S.A. indicator, both machined in and not stamped.

    First external impressions are of a very cleanly machined set of blocks and sprueplate. I see they use the Lee 6 cav type of handle attachment with the exception being they're hexhead and not a Phillip's slotted screw. ALL corners and edges of the blocks are nicely and evenly beveled which is a very nice touch.

    The sprueplate is steel and appears to be die stamped or sheared. My calipers show it as .183" thick, which means it was probably 3/16" before the block facing side was finely flycut. Also the side facing the blocks has had it's perimeter already beveled, so you guys looking forward to 'detailing' the spruplate will just have to forgo that part. There is a substantial amount of sprueplate extending beyond the end of the blocks so if you swing your SP's by hand you have lots of leverage. If you whack it you won't have any problem missing the blocks.

    The SP stop is a large (3/16" or larger) OD roll pin, which fit's into an angled slot milled into the side of the SP. The SP pivits on a buttonhead 10-24 sockethead screw. This carries a wave washer to tension the SP against the blocks, which I MUCH prefer over a Belleville, or that odd modified lock washer Lyman uses. The pivit screw is retained by a cup end hex setscrew.

    And there lay my only complaint. It is not a criticism, but a 'I'd do it this way" thing. No matter what you make or do someone is going to have their own idea of what THEY would have done differently, and this is mine While a #10 screw should handle things, I would have rather seen a 1/4" solid shoulder (no threads) under the bolthead for the SP to pivit on, as it's no flyweight. It could be stepped down to a 10-24 thread, or possibly 1/4-20. Finally, the retainer setscrew is steel against the steel threads of the pivit screw.

    There should be no threads there for the retainer setscrew to bear against, or a brass button between the two. If the setscrew is tightened enough to damage the pivit screw threads, and the pivit screw is removed for some reason (and then replaced) damage will occur to the aluminum block.

    So speaking of the blocks I've mentioned how nice they are on the outside, which is nice, but it's the INSIDE we're really interested in, yes? The block facing surfaces are flycut for venting very similar to the Lee 6 cavity blocks and it is cleanly done. The blocks carry 2 substantial alignment pins midway up the blocks with one at either end. What is unusual about them (so far as all other alignment pins go) is that they extend out beyond the blocks farther then any other's I've ever seen. They're not fully rounded on the ends but carry a well done rounded bevel on the circumfrence. There is a lot of parallel sided alignment surface out there folks!

    The mating holes in the opposing block carries a steel insert whose ID carries a matching rounded bevel as a 'guide in' for the mating pin. When those alignment pins are in the opposing steel bushings, the blocks DO NOT MOVE! I suspect there is 3x the alignment surface being used on each pin then any other mould I've ever seen.

    The cavities look perfect. No odd circular scratches, whoopties, or swarf dragged around. The finish in each cavity is, well ................perfect? Yup, I'd have to say perfect. I used Donna's 3x jeweler's loupe and you cannot tell any cavity apart from the other. There is NO identifying marks anywhere inside the cavity to mark it from another. In fact on the nose where the tool is cutting on a flat surface there is only the very faintest vestige of anything there, and it's really not circular. I don't know how they did that?

    To sum up, these blocks are easily the equal of or better then any I've had the chance to see, and/or use. The group buy price for these is a super deal for the quality IMO, and when you add in the fact that they also include some Bullplate lube, hex wrenches AND a nose punch, what more could you ask for, without being totally ashamed of yourself?

    Thank you for taking the time to review our mould.
    Look forward to your report on casting with it.

    We have hollow points!

    Swede:

    Will you run a Group Buy for less than 20 moulds (say 10) if the "group" paid for the "tooling" ?
