Re: 3D Printing Powder Disks

I hope these get marketed. I'm to old and tech challenged to even consider making them. It would be nice to be able to drill the cavities to fill the CC voids. Thanks for sharing these innovative ideas. These are customizable. You can open the designs in the Customizer and select custom hole sizes,...

3D Printed Primer Tray Funnel

This is a primer tray funnel. It makes loading square primer boxes into round primer trays easier. I took my measurements from a Federal primer box and a round Lee Auto Prime tray. I've updated my design to add spacers to adapt this for uses with smaller CCI primer boxes and larger RCBS primer trays...

3D Printing Powder Disks

I know of at least two commercial ventures that offer 3D printed or resin cast versions of Lee Auto Disk powder measure disks. But after I ran across one of SBfarmers designs he inspired me to create a collection of 3d printed powder disk projects . Some of my designs include: - Simplified Two hole ...

Re: Improving the Bench Plate

I'm thinking about replacing the z brackets with some sort of compressible material with a metal plate on top. The compressible material (rubber, silicone, stiff synthetic sponge?) would form a rectangular solid measuring 1.0" x 4.0" x 1.0" with two holes drilled in it aligned with t...

Newer Lee bench plates have an "index" hole in the base plate. The idea is to drill a hole in the wooden base and use an object like a screw driver inserted into the hole to lock the block into place while it is in use. The newer version also comes with one pre-drilled steel block and two ...

You can also look for a candy/deep fry thermometer. Here's an example from K-Mart:

King Kooker deep fry thermometer

Check the calibration by putting it in some boiling water. Water boils at 212 F (100 C) at sea level.

Generic, store brand, unsweetened drink mix is a good source of citric acid. Also, generic soda pop is one source of phosphoric acid (the main ingredient in Birchwood Casey brass cleaner). So, next time you find some flat soda in the refrigerator, try some in the wet tumbler :-) Either way, lemon/li...
