From many sources...plumbers lead....linotype from printing presses

wheel weights

some pure lead from recycled range bullets see my bullet casting thread that has pics and you'll see the initial "refining" process

Today we just poured bullets

Your welcome, 'Neck. Glad the table is what you needed. I was kinda worried it was going to be too tall.

Nice CASTING TABLE there Mr. Bubba-t......

Bubba-t, the local "Current & Future Bullet Casters of America" need your help.....................

If we bullet casting veterans are going to show the new "pups" how to cast bullets, we need some mobile bullet casting & sizing tables........

For casting..... I suggest a 4' x 8' table that is 40" tall. For sizing..... I suggest a 3' x 8' (or 4" x 8") table that is 30" tall. Both tables are 8' wide so more than one caster/sizer can setup on. Also, I suggest both tables have 4x4 legs and a 3/4" plywood top (not partical board, but no need for cabinet grade plywood either).

Bubba-t, if you are willing to accept this challenge.... Magnolia will pay for the lumber. However, your labor cost will have to be offset by the knowledge you gain during the bullet casting demos at the range.

Sub- I can do it. For Neck's table I doubled up 3/4 plywood for the top. Let me know if you want to go that way. I will sketch something up and send it to you.
