1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Ok for all you guys who have been at this a LONG time tell me how this item works. Look at E-Bay item # 220621823856 and explain it's function. This is not mine or anyone I know. I just ran across it and thought one of you collectors might know about it or may even want it.
    Let us all know how it works, if anyone can.

    If I am not mistaken ... it forms a roll crimp on paper shells.

    It's a roll crimper. Insert shell, pull handle toeard you to put pressure on the hull mouth. turn handle and gradually increase pressure on handle. It puts a very nice roll crimp on the hull.

    I have the identical tool clamped to my office bookcase. It was a gift from my sister who found it years ago in a New Hampshire antique shop.

    It now serves as a hanger for a dagger she sent me from Europe and a little model of a baseball player swinging his bat.

    My Grandfather had an old damaskas wrapped double barelled 10 gage shotgun only in black powder of course. He had one of these gagets and told us and even showed us how it worked by loading a shell for the gun. But to this day I can not remember what it was called. Not sure exactly how it worked either that was so long ago. It did the roll because the crimper was not available to him at the time. It might have been on the market but he didn't have one. The shells loaded similar to loading a muscate. Only thing is you pined out the primer and reset the new one with the primer set and the hammers on the Shotgun hit a pin which in turn hit the primered shell. Measured the Powder and shot with a small cup. with a paper wad between the shot and powder. Be thankful guys, loading a shotgun round took some time. I wish I knew how got these things in the family I would like to know if they stil have them and would like to see them. I really would like to have the gun. But Oh well it was a big family. There were 14 Aunts Brothers and Sisters. (Rich.inAz.orinnameonly)

    I have four of these crimpers in my collection of old items related to re-loading. One is nearly like new the other three good but showing signs of age/use.

    I wonder what they are worth?

    There is another tool that goes with that for priming. It works like a hand nut cracker but it has a ring in one handle to hold the shell and a tit in the other handle to push the primer when you squeeze the handles together. I have a set that belonged to my great grandmothers brother. The powder and shot measure is a small adjustable cup on a handle. There is a hollow die that you hit with a hammer to cut wads and you use a punch to deprime. I have loaded shells with to see what it was like in the old days but it is a lot slower than a grabber.
