    Talking Another get rich slow idea for the website


    I answered freakshow10mm's request for a loaner mould with a little bit different twist.
    I bought extra Steen 357-180-RF NEI moulds when Blammer did his GB.
    My intention at the time was to make two of them, one 2 cav meehanite and 4 cav Aluminum mould with one set of handles PLUS that infamous Bull Plate Lube, available on a loaner basis for the incredible sum of $10(Paybale to the website). Plus the cost of shipping to the next user, if one, or back to me.
    So, Adam is my guinea pig for this idea.
    This will also maybe help our fellow casters who have a need for a few cast bullets but don't want to expend the money for a small need. It will also allow a user to see how well, or not, the NEI moulds perform.
    I think this venue will be the best way to keep track of this unless it becomes easier to put into the formal system.
    By that I mean the order system where the hammer mould is tracked.
    The moulds, handle and lube will be going to Adam this week.

    ahhh, a first time NEI GB with a first time "rent it" mould..... I think we're breaking new ground!

    I'll bet the 311284 would go well with this idea!

    Is it too late to get in on this rent a mould trip?

    I'd love to have a go with that 180 grainer, since I've missed out on the group buys.

    If it's still a possibility, let me know the rules and where I'd need to send it on.

    Thanks.

    Loaners

    Folks,
    I finally got these two molds, handles and some Bullplate Lube mailed to Adam.
    My life has been a little tight the last few weeks.
    There is light at the end of the tunnel however.
    Now if it isn't another train-I'm in good shape.
    Hope this works out for you all.

    Me too,

    Looks like that would be great for my .357 Herrett.

    Update

    Updated 2-15-2008 Molds have been delivered to ktw and he is going to try and get some casting done before the end of the month.
    I think Adam was waiting for a response from me so it turns out the delay is a result of confusion-Oh no not confusion!
    I should also admit that is my normal mode.
    Will update this as we move from person to person with the molds.
    Thanks.
    Dave

    This does not appear to be getting off to a very good start.
    The molds that were sent to Adam, freakshow10mm, are still with him.
    Actually one is still with him as it pertains to this process.
    I have shipped a second, replacement, 4 cavity aluminum mold to ktw who has received it.
    Adam was to send the other 2 cavity steel meehanite mold, along with handles and Bull plate lube to ktw as well.
    That has not happened as of this date.
    So, for those waiting, I'm just not sure where this is going at this time.
    I sent Adam an e-mail through his website.
    He may have had PM problems-I don't know.
    Hopefully the second mold will get to ktw so he can use them and then they can start their journey onward.
    Thanks to all.

    Well you got the .357 rent a mold up and running, when you going to start the 311284 (or any mold around .311-313) rent a mold thread?

    Schedule?

    Do you have a list of those of use who have expressed an interest in this project and the order of use? It'd be interesting for each user to include a bullet cast with their name on it to track the life of the mould and how it's dimensions might change over use.

    I'm anxious to have a shot at it, and I've got a pile of wheelweights waiting for their turn in the firey furnace.

    I have finished!

    I have completed my scheduled casting with the rent-a-molds and as soon as KyWoodwrkr gets me the addresses, these molds will go to the next lucky contestant. I posted a journal of my casting experience with them on another thread under Group Molds.
