    Yep, mine was clumping - even pelletizing! I got serious about drying beforehand and it started working well. Someone said its only the charcoal as that goes up to 25% moisture easily but KNO3 only does 7%! Think about it. Either at that level...

    Yes Indian Joe, but the tumbler barrels are (ideally) not rolling but cradled, locked into position in the center of the converted tumble dryer barrel. My first barrels have 150mm inspection covers, ie screw lids, but they keep coming off because...

    Very interesting HighUintas! I hadn't realised the Tree of Heaven was NOT paulownia. Baked my second batch of willow yesterday. I put a cast iron gas ring on the briquette deck inside my old Weber kettle, with the soup pot directly on it so the...

    More wonderful, the experience building the ten dollar part allows you to later build a different part that is totally unobtainable, or never existed - until you made it.

    Fantastic DoubleBuck! My tumbler is my own fault, inventing an idea and whining not just changing it to make it better when it doesn't work right. I might actually do something.

    Wow THAT is a tight group! My eyes are not so good either; I am using reading glasses with a 1/2" piece of black electrical tape pierced with a 2mm aperture, on my glasses. The 2mm aperture turns the eye almost into a pinhole camera - focus at any...

    Very interesting! I rewired my tumble dryer and the 'warm cold hot' switch does 'clockwise off anti-clockwise'. I set it going the wrong way and the lid came unscrewed and the fan blew the entire charge all through my workshop. Every near-flat...

    Agree with more powder! I have this trouble too. Just got a Tryon .54 for Class 2 Traditional Rifle, which we shoot PRB at 50m and 100m. Relatively few people get tight groups at 100m with PRB even under competition conditions. The successful...

    Well done DoubleBuck! I have added a gas burner ring to my Weber kettle to cook my soup pot of willow that is waiting to go. I have in stock two shopping bags of paulownia and two of willow all sawn to length for the pot. My homemade tumbler is...
