    "I think I actually started the thread, but I still can't find it."

    If you started the thread click on edit/delete your message at the top of the screen(not in your last post but at the top of the screen)every message that you have submitted is in that section if it isn't there you didn't contribute to it.

    Ok if you made the thread then you must have deleted your opening post I don't know why some one would make a thread and delete the opening post after people has replied to the thread .

    Ok Sitsinhedges I think I found it at the link above in case it don't go to the thread then I will bump it up for you.

    Ok if this is not the thread then you will have to try and remember the name of it.

    Thanks for trying but that's not it. Strange thing is that I posted a link to it a couple of weeks ago on another forum and it just seems to have vanished.

    I am trying to get some good footage for a newbie shotmaker to watch, I have made enough shot to last me forever and the chap who is buying my setup could be helped along a little.

    Any other links to the shotmaking videos would be a real help.

    Cheers
    Andy

    Sitsinhedges, Here's a few pics of my setup. Maybe it will help you. Jim


    Here is a few pics of my setup. I use Low Tox antifreeze with a pint of liquid laundy
    Soap to to five gallons. Coolant is constantly circulated thru the radiator and back to the
    Drop tank. With this setup I can make 400 lbs of shot a day.

    Front view showing coolant level in tank

    Inside of tank showing inflow and overflow tubes. Funnel shaped insert with a 3/8
    Inch Hole to allow shot and some coolant to flow out.

    Old cement mixer with paddles removed and coated with bed liner. Used to tumble and graphite shot. It will tumble 300 lbs at a time.
