Ironjaw, Don't throw the phosphor bronze brushes overboard and jump in behind them just yet; there may be more input coming. Just like the Army; there's always the initial report and various numbers of supplemental reports that modify the initial report. It didn't take long to learn to never jump to...

Kelley O. Ok, here's the fishing report. Took 2 other guys with me; got on the water about noonish. Didn't go earlier because they couldn't get off work any sooner, and it is plenty cold around here out on the water earlier in the morning anyway. Start to early and we end up with water freezing in t...

Kelley O. The confederate air force; is that kinda like the North Dakota navy? OK I'll take the bait; "why can't we just all get along?" Don't have time to say more; the ice is out of the river, the bite is on, and I gotta finish hooking up the boat. It's a dirty job, but somebody has to do it. Prob...

Hoppes #9 with 1 qt. of the straight washer fluid; shake it up and you are good to go. Use it just like any other barrel cl...

Kelley,

I have seen Getz barrels for sale in the Track of the Wolf catalog. Don't know if it is the same Getz you are talking about here, but there can't be too many barrel makers by that name. FYI.

Sparky, I have had the same problem with my Lyman 457132 and 457125 moulds. What I do is push down on the end of the sprue plate with a piece of 1x2 pine after cutting off the sprue as I gradually open the mould with my other hand. You want the sprue plate to be about lined up parallel with the moul...
