    That problem would be easily solved by one of the freshly swaged bullets!
    What is that squeaking noise?

    I was thinking about the match plate thing earlier today.
    I wonder what the chances of me getting both halves lined up are?

    And now that you've gotten eight advance orders, maybe you should re-think investing in a patent. Being as you've shown it around, you're open to design "theft" by someone who could get the patent, and file charges against you for infringement.

    only 5 orders total, had 3 and 2 more today

    You could probably use your existing alignment pins. Use them to mark the matchplate, drill through the marks, replace the alignment pins with some longer ones, and align the halves that way. Easy peasy.

    If I'm understand your correctly I've used wooden kebab skewers to locate two halfs of a pattern to a match plate. Drill the piece and split then use them as a dowel.

    well I pulled my first bonehead today with aluminum casting.
    Forgot the clamps on the flask on the 2nd pour and jacked the lid up spilling hot
    stuff everywhere.
    Been at this for a year, surprised it took this long LOL

    Jim- I must say the way you did the raised lettering is pure genius. Can you still buy those label makers? What are they called?

    Back in the day, the brand name was "DYMO". Not sure if they're still made, or if you can even get the tape anymore.

    I was wondering if there is still tape available or not.
    I have to go to Walmart in the AM to pick up prescriptions, I'll look and see

    I broke the sand pulling patterns on the 2nd run, twice. Running out of day, got in a hurry and forgot the clamps
    100% my bad, I should have quit after the 2nd ramming failure

    Embossing tape and label makers still available on Amazon

    Jim, very nice tool you have made, good job.
    As you produce these, keep the same color. That way, when someone sees one, they'll shout out, Hey, that's a Flinchbaugh press!
    It'll be more than 15 minutes of fame.
