Re: Just for the Heck Of It

How I knew it is simple. I've been into reloading for a long time. If you want to do anything right, you have to keep on reading and learning. You will never know "everything". Because of this, I read anything I can find about any of my hobbys. There was a picture of a device like this in one of the...

This is device for testing blackpowder. Each batch of powder could be a little "hotter" or "cooler". By measuring a small amout of each batch, loads could be adjusted to allow for this difference.

I made one like this out of a Bud Luminum Long Neck. It took over a minute to bloom too.
The burn on my thumb is still healing after a week.
A needle nose pliars seems to be the hot ticket for match holding with this design.

Re: Had to remind myself and everyone else.

I know what you mean. On days like today I really miss Wisconsin. Here in Oklahoma we have to put up with low 70s and 5-10 mph wind. When I was out this AM I had to wear my shades. :D

Re: Real Old One

OOPS 56,
Have you ever tried yours out? When I tried mine, I can honestly say that I was not expecting it to perform like it did.
It appeared to be nothing more that "warmer", not a real stove. Except for the style, they appear to be the same-even down to the simmer and snuffing rings.
