    interesting that my father was also 30 when i came around , they bought a shepard puppy at that time - he was my dog ...or maybe i should say i was his child till he died , ive never had such an attachment since , i agree on the learning ---this has been a fun thread to read and relive forgotten moments [most of which ive refrained from writing here] thanks

    You ain't had fun until you have to 3-Wire a M385 X 0.5 thread while the part is still in the lathe.   Threaded length was only about 12mm.   Used .018" wires and 40 inch calipers.  Fun times.


    What was that for?

    True enough.  I like mine to be a nice shiny car.  BUT!!  It only takes Seven Minutes, Forty Seconds inna car wash.  Shiny brass takes HOW LONG???


    Not long really, its not like your sitting there whilst the machine is doing its thing.


    Main two reasons for me going to wet tumbling is that my nose and throat used to burn separating brass from walnut/corn cob, lot of nasties accumulating in there.
    Wet tumbling alleviated that problem with the benefit of brilliantly shining up the insides that allows me to easily visibly check for powder (habit I have always done even with Dillon powder alarm).

    I have found my stained brass shoots just as good as that "Bright" stuff.  Wash, Dry, 30 Minutes inna Lizard Litter - DONE.


    Dirty cars also get you from A to B just fine ..... but a lot of folks take pride in having a clean shiny car.
