Went out to the garage today to turn on the caster pot .
I set my 5 molds under the master caster to get them up to temp , usually takes 45 min and were ready to start casting .
It was a whopping 12 degrees in the garage so I went inside the house to get a different coat on and get some reject bullets to put them in the pot .
Well I got side tracked and did not check on the pot for the full 45 min .
I usually check on things every ten minutes or so .
When I went into the garage I had a huge mess and I was missing a mold !!!!
Thats right the needle seat was not seated right and half the 90 pounds was all over my casting bench and covered a mold completely up !!!
Took me awhile to chip all the lead off the bench and the mold .
The mold handles took the brunt of the lead and they got a little crispy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Got everything back into good working order and I was off casting beauties for two hours until my back was and icicle .
Closed things up and went and got the snow blower going and spent the next two hours blowing the driveway .
When will spring get here ????
