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.

Pretty neat! Obviously OSHA wasn't a thing back then :lol: I just couldn't imagine how loud and miserable it would be to be around those machines all day

That was wonderful.. And the end "My Dear Chumlee" wonderful

One thing that has always fascinated in bullet making in this time frame is you had people manually loading a part of the bullet or case into a machine one at a time.. I have wondered for years was this because no one could automate that step.. or was this more a quality control issue..??? I will say that had to be one darn tedious job..

Just to bring this forward notch here are some more Modern bullet making videos I liked
