Looks for Range

Looks for Range (1/11)

  1. I did same As @bigeric and have pulled the files from the castboolits forum. I’ve printed both a bullet and a case feeder, and have had zero issues with about 4k rounds so far.
  2. What did you do to the electronics? I did a minor deviation to the proximity sensor wiring schematic, so that all power is shut off at the switch instead of leaving the sensor constantly energized.
  3. The latest on this can be found at the castboolits forum. TylerR has a link in his signature to the latest files. Note that these are not interchangeable with the AM feeder, they are updates based on his design though. I’ve built both the bullet and brass collators, and have zero complaints. http://castboolits.gunloads.com/showthread.php?354324-Making-that-Bullet-Collator/page216
  4. I haven't received any orders since the summer, but I did just put another order in. They did have an announcement up that the current events have put them behind, but it seems that yours may be further than we should expect. They are out of NJ, and had to cut hours to comply with COVID restrictions. I doubt that helped any, and I don't know if/when those restrictions were lifted. https://www.ibejiheads.com/index.php?page_id=13
  5. Without a doubt, I shoot better when I am on a squad with better shooters. I watch how they lay out the stage, pick up ideas on how to better play the game, and have zero thoughts about being competitive. I think that the best way to improve is to constantly push yourself. Its tough to do that when you don't know how much better you could get. Watching a Master or GM take down a stage is not only a learning experience, its motivation.
  6. You can use the GoPro app to live stream footage to your phone. You can download videos from the camera to your phone with the app. https://gopro.com/en/us/shop/softwareandapp/gopro-quik-app-|-mobile/GoPro-Replay-App.html I don't upload directly, so I don't know how that works, but it appears that you are able to share to youtube or facebook through the app as well.
  7. I know this is a little old, but I would recommend a GoPro Hero 5 Session. Its the small cube, lightweight, single button recording, great stabilization, ability to record 1080, 2.7k or 4k. Unfortunately its no longer made, so you need to find one used. Pair it with a hat mount and you have a great setup.
  8. I've been building the updated version of this Bullet feeder, and it works great. If you have a 3D printer, or are willing to buy one, its well worth it and very straightforward to build. As I understand it though, Karl is only on Facebook. Either sign up, or have one of your friends on FB get his contact info for you.
  9. I got my bullet collator, and bullet feed dies finished up over the weekend. Everything is wired up, and mounted. I believe that I'll have a little tuning to do since I got 2 bullets nose down out of 100, but overall I am very happy. Now, to make a second one to do the brass collation.
  10. I tried to print 4 sets of dies overnight, and woke up to this mess. Time to do them one set at a time and hope for the best. Printing them in the .12 (superfine) layer height takes about 10 hours per set.
  11. I haven't printed them, but they look good. They are in queue, and I'll have one ready in a few days.
  12. Good luck. Did you get the latest files for the collator plates, with the slip clutch?
  13. Im in the middle of printing out 2 collators, one for bullets and one for brass, as well as the casefeeder for my press and bullet feeding dies. The casefeeder was completed last week, and after slight tuning, it works very well. The first collator is nearly complete, and with a test run dumping bullets into a box, it works 100%. @SoggyCashew, like you, I picked up an Ender 3 V2 because I enjoy tinkering and because I the cost of the printer and all materials for a single collator is less than a new Mr. Bullet Feeder. It looks like you are printing the same files that i am. Which sensor did you decide to go with? I opted for the proximity sensor, and did do a slight modification to the wiring diagram to shut power off to everything (not leaving the relay energized all the time).
  14. This looks like a promising press. I don't get the doubt about it being reliable because of the price point, the Hornady LnL (while far from the best press) is good enough for those getting started out. The FX-10 costs more, but offers more. If designed right, it should be every bit as reliable as a LnL. If it meets that bar, Im in. To be honest, Im probably going to order one as soon as it is available either way. I want an extra position or two over what I have on my LnL.
  15. As Dranoel said, the best lubricant is dependent on your specific gun. That said, I use a combination of 3 lubricants depending on the firearm. Slide Glide - I keep this for the rails/slide of my 2011/1911s. I do this because it stays put in these areas. Lucas Gun Oil - I use this everywhere else on my 2011/1911's and most of my other firearms. Mobil 1, I use this in my cars, and always have a supply of 0W-40 or 5w-20 around. It works great in firearms as well. I prefer the Lucas gun oil simply because the small bottle is more convenient and the dropper is much finer. But, if I run out, or I have a specific use case, I just grab the Mobil 1 and go to town. Don't overthink it, a firearm is simply a machine. It requires lubrication on parts that need to slide against other parts. Decide if a Grease or an Oil is most appropriate, then determine how heavy of a lubricant you need based on the fit of the parts you are lubricating.
