    See if your pharmacy will save some of the desiccant caps that come with bulk drugs. My son is a pharmacist and manages a pharmacy that supplies nursing homes and assisted living facilities. They throw out a bunch of these things. I usually put...

    I can't argue with your statement since I just don't know. When I acquired my stash of 40/60(several hundred pounds), it was the standard solder for our manufacturing processes. The products were components for large power transformers and the use...

    I'm in that mode right now. I turn 80 in July and my wife is blissfully ignorant of what I have in the shop. The two sons know the important stuff but that is only about half. As soon as I figure out(with help) how to post pictures, I'm going to...

    I use approx 2% tin with WW for almost all my casting. I admit I don't compete and don't hunt but I do get good boolits with sharp edges and good overall definition. I've never understood why in these days of lead shortages(think WW) Lyman #2 is...

    I've got a CED Millennium 2 chronograph. I don't use it often enough to remember all the features. I should remember to take it to the range every time so I can stay acquainted with it. One big problem is the supports for the "sun shades" are...

    I'm in the same boat as One Gun Andy. Lots of stuff I need to sell but also need to include pictures to justify the condition some of this stuff is in. Got a friend helping but his time is limited and has no experience posting stuff for sale.

    I've got all three types but find that the boolits I favor come from the brass MP molds. I usually stick with solid boolits rather than HP because I don't hunt and don't like the extra work with the HP pins. Recently I've been casting with some...

    I've got two Dillon Blue bags I bought on closeout about 20+ years ago. They each came with a pistol pouch in a side pocket. I rarely used the pistol pockets and before too long the plastic sewn in stiffeners deteriorated and started crumbling. ...

    I have the following Paul Matthews books for sale as a set. I will not sell any of them separately. The books are all soft cover in excellent condition except #1, which has some pebbling on the back cover from being against something when shipped...

    My first(and last) wife doesn't like guns either. We will have been married 56 years twelve days after my 80th birthday. She only has a comment when the Brown Truck stops in front of the house. Both sons shoot although only the older hunts. ...

    I've got a whole lot of Dewalt battery tools and all the batteries come off the tool. They just won't run the tools. I've already had the cells replaced on one battery and bought a new drill just to get the batteries. Both gave up the ghost in no...

    alamogunr started a thread Plug For Handloader in Our Town
    Seems like every time Handloader Magazine comes up, there are a boatload of comments to the effect that "it ain't what it used to be" and "I'm too smart and well informed to buy the rag". Well, I received my latest copy a couple of days ago and I...

    Does anything else need to be changed to go to 220V? I've also got the Lee furnace. (Except for the plug, of course)

    Quite a few years ago I found a 220V Pro Melt on sale for a hefty discount. I ordered it immediately since I had 220V service in my shop for my table saw. The pot came with a European plug that I replaced with the same plug used on the saw. I...

    The 2 lock rings sounds just right for me. It is a pain for both the large RCBS measure and the Little Dandy. The Little Dandy has to be emptied to change out the rotor when you are trying to zero in on a odd powder(surplus). I've sometimes had...

    So sorry for your loss. You were blessed to have him to that advanced age. We lost both my father and father-in-law in 1982. Father-in-law was only 65. My father was 75. Hard work wore a lot of men out early and inherited genes took care of...
