110 pounds of good old American Iron. Easily adaptable to my 14x40 Gear Head Jet.

Everything works great, just got to figure out how to remove the 6 tool holders. I suspect 60 years of congealed lube after sitting on a shelf somewhere. Kroil is doing its thing now.

Ya hoo, got them out. 2 hour soak in Kroil did it. And a little help from a lathe dog to add some twisting motion .

After some minor fitting and machining I will have it set up on the lathe.

This thing is pristine inside. Some of the tool holders are blanks, never used. Still can see the hand scraping.

I will be tooling it up for loading die making. Mainly for the odd big bores.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
