    My CNC mill has been sitting idle for a little over a year since delving into 3D printing. What this means for me is that I've just about had to re-learn how to use my mill and the CAM Software that I use to convert my CAD models to the G-Code...

    I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel with this latest Automatic-Resin- Mixing Vat project. I believe I've managed to come up with the final version that will serve my specific needs. In the past four weeks I've changed my...

    This is a quick and general CAD rendering of what I hope will be the final iteration of my Automatic-Resin-Mixing Vat. The dimensions of the vat itself remain basically the same. The only difference are the input and output flow ports. These...

    In fiddling around with all the connecting and disconnecting of the small hoses needed to facilitate the circulation of my fluid flow testing, I've come up with a way of simplifying the process even further. And even better still, it will make...

    My Micro-Peristaltic Pump showed up today. I got a chance to do some rudimentary testing with it. I'm happy to report that the pump works. I mean it circulates the water I was using as my test medium. I happened to have some alcohol based...

    I was afraid that I'd be to stuffed with turkey later on to want to do any uploading or photo editing so I thought I'd get this done now. I'm still waiting on that little Peristaltic Pump I ordered but in the meantime I'm trying to get everything...

    My first attempt at 3D filament printing the first of my prototype Automatic-Resin-Mixing vats started out beautifully. About a third of the way in, problems arose. I was afraid I had set the heat way to high in the print settings cause I was...

    After searching for more information on the durability of various 3D filament materials that might be better suited for printing my first prototype 3D printed Automatic-Resin-Mixing Vats I determined that PETG filament might be a good starting...

    In checking into the durability of a resin vat printed using any kind of filaments or resins, I was informed by the folks who manufacture 3D print resins that, a 3D printed resin vat will most likely start to soften within a few hours of being in...

    To some it may seem like overkill but to me, it's my way forward to a successful completion of this 3D printed bullet mold project. Good News: I figured out how to use the "Flow Simulation" feature that came with my CAD software. Bad News: ...

    I have just enough resin left to print about four more individual bullets molds. Each of these 3D printed bullet mold takes about the same amount of resin. (2 oz.) Since coming up with my recent Resin-Mixing-Gizmo, I've tested it by simply...

Biography:
I joined as a semi-newbie. Now I've been here long enough to consider myself knowledgeable about bullet casting.

With the help of some of the more experienced bullet casters on this site, I've developed some tools and bullets for my own personal use. Among them are a Soft-Pointing tool, Boat-Tailed Gas Checks and dies, Air Gun Pellet Swager, Match-Grade Air gun Trigger, K31 scope mounts and a few other things I've posted about.

The learning never ends and the ideas keep coming. Unfortunately for me, there isn't enough time in the day to tackle them all.

What the world calls "Global Warming", we in Arizona call "Summer Time."
