Hi Folks, My new (to me) scales came today! It's been a looong wait. Background is a Lyman/Ohaus D-5, and in the foreground is a Redding with oil dampening. The Lyman at zero... ... and the Redding with a calibration weight. They both are spot on. I really like the Redding. Been playing with oil vs speed to zero and precision. I think I've found a mixture of vegetable oil and a smidge of beeswax that works very well. The original stuff I made up was too thick by a bit, but I think I can do better than the vegetable oil. I happened to talk to Dad today and he said that in engineering they had always used 10 weight motor oil or similar, but I want to stay away from petroleum products around gunpowder. Even with pure vegetable oil, the Redding settles down faster than any magnetically dampened scale I've seen. Both beat the Lee I have all to heck! I do believe one or both of these will be replacing my Lyman electronic scale. That thing's just a bit too temperamental for my tastes. I'm pretty tired today, but after working tomorrow making sights and such, I think I might give them both a spin! As always, comments are welcome! Thanks, Josh Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
