    It's small, like 4x4, but make your plate double or triple the size, so you can preheat your boolits. Conventional beeswax based lube will "stick" in the lube grooves better on warm boolits, than on cold boolits. I think the base I used is 8" x 6"...

    Five months ago, I sold my 21 yr old Chevy C2500 pickup, std cab, 8' box, 5.7ltr, that had minimal rust and fairly low miles for it's age, for $3700, to a happy water melon farmer. Maybe I under-priced it?
