Today I come to you with sad news, my best friend and brother in life past away 11/21/23. He had a fight with cancer that he lost, it’ll be hard. My email box was always full with all the things we were working on and all the hours on the phone and video calls. I’ll […]
I needed a trickler for loading powder, I was doing by hand before and was tedious so I made a power trickler with a vibrating motor from a cell phone Backyard Inventor
Another bullet feeder build; this time I put a reverse switch in for jammed bullets. Backyard Inventor
Here are a few more of my improvements to the bullet feeder. I continue my development on this, as I find things that will help I will put them out.
Mr. Bulletfeeder motors were the best motors for our DIY bullet feeders, but since they are not available anymore we have to create our own solution, and this is mine. Backyard Inventor
Old Star in action
Awhile back I made a video on bullet feeder mods for the AmmoMike machine. And thank you AmmoMike for your time on this. So some of my viewers wanted the STL files to try on their machines. So I’ll give a link to Thingiverse, good luck with it I hope it helps out. Backyard Inventor
How to make your own tool for testing and tuning your 1911 extractor. Backyard Inventor
I came up an easy way to make my targets for my attempt at Bullseye shooting. But my old eyes didn’t pick up the black targets that are usually used with my black front sight. So you only need a few things and chances are you have some of the stuff you need to make one.
I 3D printed a front sight for my Browning Buckmark. Check it out....
Just started reloading shotgun again and for my loads I needed overshot cards to get a good crimp on the hull. Made a punch out of cheap parts and wanted to share what I did. Backyard Inventor
The Lee 4-20 is a great casting pot but does have a tendency to drip but there is a cheap and quick fix. Backyard Inventor
This is a great old machine given to me from my friend. This will have a good spot on my reloading bench. Dave is a great guy and friend, Thank You buddy. Backyard Inventor
This project has been going on for a while; I’m building it for my buddy Thor’s Axe. Sometimes in life you get a bonus for being a good person. I’m doing some modifications to this for reliable nose down dropping, so when he gets it it’ll be ready to mount to the bench and on the Star Sizer.
I got a 3D printer just to drive myself a little crazier than I am.
Well finally got a good new scale a GemPro 300, I works the way I want. I can see the display clear and I like it. It works for the way I reload on my progressive loader. What I meant to say is the second digit is a 1/10 of a 1/10 of a grain
I did this video some time ago; it’s a good idea if you're into mixing.
I was having primer feed problems with Dillon SDB, if anyone else is experiencing issues with the priming system on a Square Deal B this may be your problem
These are my homemade diopter shooting glasses and new grips; when we get old our eyes start giving out. Worst thing for me, tried shooting Bullseye style shooting. Plus the human can’t focus on 3 things at once, the simple device of diopter shooting glasses makes that all go away. Now you can see front […]
This is the case feeder for my Dillon Square Deal B that wasn’t ever made by anyone and the very first functional case feeder for the Dillon SDB in the world that I ever heard of or seen.
Those that know me know that I like to make things. Sometimes they are hard and take some time to develop, and this is one of them. This was my very first video! At the time I was getting sick and knew if I waited one more day I wouldn’t be able to do it. I was right; I was down for a month-and-a-half. It took many days and hours, but glad I did it.
I did this awhile ago for guys that didn’t know how to do it. I did call the grip safety a beaver tail by mistake. Hope this helps someone. I do it so often it only takes me with-in 2 minutes to have a pile of parts. Take your time to learn it will become second nature.
This is a real set-up wished I had it years ago
