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.

    It will take an old coot like me to even remember one of these but I have recently come into several thousand Fed Papers in all sorts of condition and I was just wondering if there was an old warmer/former out there for sale somewherer.

    Please let me know.

    What you're looking for is a long ago discontinued Texan deprimer/resizer with electric heating element to reconsstitute the paper hull tube and base wad. I have one , but it's not for sale.

    I think many people have seen them, but don't know what they are for, who knows, someone may have one floating around and are willing to get rid of it.

    I did know an old guy who used a straight shanked soldering iron that he slipped a piece of round stock over it and clamped the whole mess in his vise. He wore heavy padded gloves when pushing the hulls over the heating element.

    I wonder if a womans's curling iron would work? My wife says they make several different diameters. Perhaps if one of them is close to the ID of the hulls it would work. Just a thought anyway..............

    Jerry, I'll take one if Jim already found one. Just let me know what's fair. I sold a few on eBay over the years and now I could use one again!!

    I am sorry for this inconvenience but I don't want one of these to get away because we all know there are not many out there!

    I have 2 of the hull heaters. They just heat the hull to shape it and redistribute the wax. They do not deprime or resize. Mine were made by Herter's.
    They are NOT for sale.

    Years ago when I loaded a lot of federal paper I used this method. I would melt wax. The wax used in making jelly. I would straighten out the mouth of the case. Then I would dip the mouth of the case in to the melted wax. I would set the cases on a cookie sheet and put them into the oven until the whole case would appear wet. The case would appear like new. Could reload them many times.

    OK, help me understand. How does this tool work? Do you need wax to renew the hull? I saw a unit at a garage sale and was curious.

    Tom,

    The one you posted as being sold today is nothing like what I have. The one I have not only reconditions the wax on the hull it resizes and deprimes.

    I owned a Lachmiller or Lachmeyer ???resizer and used it on Federal papers for years. It was the Cadillac of the resizers in it's day. As I recall it would resize the case and iron it along with flattening the brass. I haven't seen one in years.
