Today I was argueing with a Lee mould that just didnt want to fill out ! Went round and round , temperature speed cleaned it several times with denatured alcohol , hot soapy water .................it just didnt want to fill out ! I remembered having some of that spray release and set the mould aside and used another mould for a while . When I could handle the mould with ease I stepped out side and sprayed it , came in and continued csating while it dried . About 15 minutes after I looked at it and it looked dry so I run a couple bullets in it just dumping them with the sprus while it heated up after 1/2 dozen or so casts I looked and found the ugliest gnarly looking things when I opened the mold ! The bullets were all shrivled and wrinkled looking , although they did fall out of mould easy !
I looked in the mould and it looked like pictures of the moon only worse ! I knew the mould was toast , I just knew it ! Needless to say I was pretty well ticked at this point over ruining that mould ! I figured It was toast , so out to the shop I went and looked to see what solvents I had and found I had some acetone . I had a soft brass toothbrush that I dipped in the acetone and gently scrubbed all that goo out of the cavity and cleaned and rinced several times and got back to square one ! Found some stick matches , smoked cavity and we're back in business !!:D:)
Ill remember that , and NOT do it again !
