Got it

I found a trim die! Kind of by accident though. Ebay provides alternate choices for a searched item, and I mistakenly 'bought one now' for a .30/30 trim die. In the midst of contacting the seller and...

railroad spikes

I started the blacksmithing addiction over fifty years ago, then had a time where my interests went else where. I rekindled my interests about 25 years ago and have been active since then.

Lyman Help

I have obtained a Lyman Accu Measure... unfortunately it came without any of the rotors.
If any of you have one of these I would appreciate some dimensions so that I can build some for myself.
