Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

TOO BAD

I just read where a bunch of guys have said that they can’t get out to do any shooting lately because of the heat, humidity and bugs. Here we are also having record breaking temperatures, but nothing like the rest of the country. For the last couple of months it is usually right around 40 degrees ev...

BRASS CLEANING

DSC_0007.JPG I see where some have trouble with brass cleaning with vibrator type cleaners....I see it as ‘all vibrators are not created equal’...’all vibrator cleaning media is not created equal’...and all vibrator users are not created equal. I think...I THINK, that too many let their self be lim...

Re: JUST FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH

Remember the other day when I said that I could quench O-1 steel in Elephant pee. Well the author of this article realizes this also. Look at page 40, note (4). I knew this when I said it. I know what a spray bottle is. I know what a Heat Treating Spray-Booth is. When a shade-tree blacksmith says th...

Re: BULLET COATING

Nothing earth shattering here...but just what I have been finding out on Bullet Coating in the past couple of days. I would say the only reason that I may do it is to make some pretty bullets, but I don’t have the needs that some others may have. So far the only reason that I can see to do it is to ...

Re: ETC-ETC

Think of this funny story – The back yard Black Smith knows that they know how heat treating works where as the PHD of Metallurgy knows that he doesn’t ‘really’ know how heat treating of metal works. It’s pretty darn hard to get inside that piece of hot metal to see just what is going on in there.

FWTW http://navybmr.com/study%20material/14250a/14250A_ch2.pdf By the way....look at page 2-4...”Heat treatment theory”, this is just what it means, “THEORY’. Theory meaning an unproven hypothesis. The first paragraph of this has a lot of meaning. I Think of it as a best guess so far as to help expl...

Hi capt – Yes, I well understand why you might ask this, ‘Why’. I personally have absolutely no reason to do this...none...’other than’, just to satisfy my curiosity. Again, anything that I have to say is always just my opinion. But it is awkward to state that before writing every time. So...I have ...

Re: BULLET COATING

Okay, FWTW - I just tried coating some cast bullets with MINWAX Fast Dry Polyurethane 50/50 with thinner and some Rit Dye. For me the Rit Dye did ‘not’ mix with the Poly and thinner. I can’t find out what kind of dye it is, but it did not mix for me. But it is fast drying. The relative humidity is i...
