    I am not a gun smith but I am curious to know what you need done. I own an early first gen in 44. The biggest problem I have had is losing the bolt alignment pin when reassembling.

    Are you saying other people have told you the rounds are too long or that the rounds are too long for other guns? If it is other people telling you they are too long ignore them. As others have stated they look great.

    Don't forget to put something on the inside mounted to the wall of the tube to agitate the brass.

    I this is the slick plastic bowl on your tumbler, try getting a couple of rubber washer to place between the steel washer and the bowl. If this stops the bowl from spinning you might try some spray on bed liner to quiet it down. I have never tried...

    The mention of wind power was made. My wife related an article she read just recently that many of the early wind turbines are becoming obsolete or unrepairable economically. Evidently the blades, or some other parts, from these turbines are...

    For lack of a more appropriate place I put this here. Do you save your spent primers for recycling or trash them? I have about 10 lbs. ready to go to the recycler.

    The only way I can see electric vehicles completely replacing fuel vehicles of all types is if there is a major infrastructure change. I think we would have to see some sort of power induction system place in major roadways. Something similar to...

    Not all that familiar with the tumbler...but could you take the piece that looks like a pully (it looks like it is the drive wheel) and mount it to something else? Maybe a piece of 4" PVC sewer pipe?

    As stated before...I have .38 cases I have been loading since 1974-75. They probably have between 8 to 12 reloads per case. Now granted most of my 38 loads would be considered powder puff loads, but I have no problem with bullet retention. Under...

    If I remember correctly, back in the seventies, Popular Mechanics did several articles on building hybrid electric cars. Of course back then all you had were the lead acid batteries of the day so you needed a light car with large space for...

    Although your solution is very simple I solved that problem by buying one of these. No more primers on the floor either which to me was the bigger problem. I like your solution though.

    First off, just to let you know, I am not looking for equipment. I probably will never smelt anymore range scrap for the rest of my life. The problem is I just can't justify getting rid of the equipment. It will probably take up room in the...

    That is really nice. Was the kit as easy to put together as I have read? I have seen that there is very little fitting that needs to be done. And that all of the dove tails for sights and barrel lugs are already done.
