The Leather Shop / Re: What does Your Maker Stamp Look Like?
« Last post by Marshal Will Wingam on Today at 04:10:57 PM »
I just got another makers stamp. I have been wanting an oval stamp for times when my other one doesn't fit or look right. My other one is a steel stamp made by Infinity Stamps. I wanted to see how the Grey Ghost Delrin stamps are. The order went smoothly and after I sent my artwork to Jeff, he had the stamp to me in a couple days. Great service, there.

This one was inspired by a Main & Winchester stamp.



I'll compare it to my steel stamp made by Infinity.



The Delrin stamp is laser cut so the whole thing is straight cut where the steel stamp has tapered lines. The impression is ever so slightly crisper with the Delrin one but not greatly so. The image made with the steel one is slightly softer looking and maybe a bit more historically correct, but again, not by a lot.





What is the most different about them is that the laser cut image requires a heck of a lot more oomph to get a decent impression. My 32 oz UHMW mallet wasn't up to the task. I tried several times with it but finally found that I got a good impression from two whacks with a 1lb dead blow hammer (which is now one of my leather tools). On the plus side, lining up the stamp for the second blow was easy.



So which do I like better? I like my Infinity stamp a little better but the Grey Ghost stamp was considerably more affordable. Both are top quality. The steel stamp will last forever where the Delrin one may not. When the time comes to get another stamp, it'll depend on my mood which one I get.

For me, any chance to own any of Chuck's beadwork is like winning the lottery. I also have another beaded sheath I found on Ebay that I need to photograph.

They won't list it as in stock until all the backorders are filled.

Man, that has to be one of his finest pieces. You really scored, there. Thanks for sharing the photos. Even though this isn't your own work, be sure to add that to our "Show Us Your Bead Work" thread for future reference.

I look forward to seeing photos of your the other items, too.

Colt Firearms / Re: 1/4 "safety" notch

I can't quote page and line, but there is an account in John Finerty's (The Fightin' Irish Pencil Pusher) book, "Warpth and Bivouac" AD resulting from something striking the hammer of his gun that had been let down on a live round. Fortunately, the bullet struck the pommel of his saddle! Another account talks of the burial of a soldier who accidentally shot himself. In both cases, it is likely they were packing six rounds.

Why would it be any different than firing BP out of a Uberti?  My Winchester 73 in .44-40 has never fired anything but BP.

Lubed or unlubed bullets is no problemo.

 I actually loaded some APP in .38's recently from a can that I had opened in 2013 as I had a couple of annual matches coming up and had not had time to relube bullets with BP lube.  They smoked fine, but I have since purchased lubed bullets from Springfield Slim so I can get back to real BP in the rifle for that flame and authentic smell.

Not sure if this question should be here or in The Dark Arts.

I have a 1 pound jug of the APP powder in 3F. Since I already have it, I may as well load up some .45 Colts and see what happens, but I was reading that they recommend using NO lube. ALL of my projectiles are already lubed with SPG. Is this going to be a problem?

Yes, I know it is not true black powder, but is a substitute.
