PING - Gunner

I went to the auction today and the lathe was a South Bend Model "A"
in excellent condition. It came with the cabinet it was mounted on, a
rotary table, loads of chucks and tool holders and god knows what-all
in the drawers. It went for, are you ready for this? $350. If I
thought it was going to be that low I'd have gone for it. Oh well.
I DID manage to get eight one-pound rolls of Alpha 60/40, .062 solder
and it's available for $2.00 a roll.
I also bought 30 pounds of lead ingots if you know anyone who might be
interested. I'm not sure of the price yet. I'll have to see what the
market price is and work from there.

A few years ago, I bought a plastic bucket of lead swipings from a gun range. Melted off about 50 lbs of lead ingots at the cost of $3 plus a lot of hassle.

That's me, a day late and a dollar short, most of the time. I figure that there are some shooters / reloaders around here that will want it. There's also a couple of boxes of empty 12 ga. shells.

Ill take 3 rolls.
There isnt enough lead to make it worth my while. I need a couple hundred pounds at minimum. Wheel weights would be good.
Bullet casting season is here.

I'll set the rolls of solder aside for you. Let me know when you're going to be in this area or where you want me to send it. I don't know what the postage would be. I figured that some reloader around here might want it so i got it.
