Using the absence of my wife and dog at agility training (the dog being agile not my wife) - home casting is not helped with the presence of a bouncy dog ! - I thought I'd try out my new moulds . The first thing I had to do was take my gas cooker to pieces and clean the jets as I've not used it in the last six months , but I soon got into the swing of things .
I cut vents into the moulds to allow the metal to reach the ends of the rifles before I started . These moulds are some of the original Holger Erikson ones and pretty old, but I must admit I prefer these as they are full of character and cast easily .
I got these done very quickly and without any miss-casts - the Goddess of Home Casting smiled on me today ! . Now to get them cleaned up , based and undercoated.
