After almost 15 years of using the lee production lead smelter I finally broke down and decided to buy the RCBS Pro Melter. :)After I got it out of the box I decided to do some melting for afternoon. I dumpped out some range scrap lead (in ingot form) which in the past with the Lee melter casted beautifully--- after the lead alloy got melted and after fluxing the melt, I cranked it up to about 725Ã‚Â° and about 15 minutes into the melting session the nozzle was not putting out enough lead instead, the alloy came up dripping decided to open up by adjusting screw little bit and the melt was still was coming out dripping. The next thing I did was to heat up a stainless steel welding rod about 1/8 inch in diameter, heated up until it was red-hot with my propane torch and at the same time prodded the nozzle so that whatever was clogging it would jar loose. Then it was casting as usual again and about 10 min. into the session it started clogging again as previous. Now on the Lee production mold I never had this problem before but on my new and out of the box RCBS Pro melter this seems to be a problem it seems like every one or 200 bullets that I cast I have to clear up the nozzle spout.
My question is----is it my melter or is it the type all alloy that I am using? Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.:dude:
