    Just make sure there are no sparks and if possible use a long plastic extension. One of the handiest Wet Vacs I ever bought was a 2.5 gallon. I use it for sucking water out of toilet bowls when I have to turn em over. Sucked Gasoline out of a snow blower,,,, ONCE!* Plus many other quick fixes. Like small drains and such
    ** The Gas suction went fine but now every time I use it the smell of gasoline is everywhere around me and in my clothing.

    I've only been reloading for 2 years or so with a Dillon 550B but
    a. When I first started I didn't bother using the pin in the primer pickup tube to dispense the primers into the tube on the machine. Held them inplace with my finger, placed the pickup tube, pulled finger, primers dropped nicely, good deal until some of them came out flipped.
    b. I have all of my die sets on tool heads but still have to move the powder dispenser when I change calibers. Somehow or other I always manage to cycle the powder bar at least once doing this despite all of the advance warnings I give myself. I swear that thing moves on it's own.

    Agreed. Nye is too far to the Left for me.
