That is running at 70% capacity. The dang thing is hard to keep up with!
You would have to cast six days a week to load on the seventh day. Probably a couple days, at least, just tumbling brass to feed it also! Neat machine.
I also bought a Bullet master Bullet Collator and sizer. Same auction. That’s next on the list to get cleaned up and redone. The bad thing about the caster and collator is they are old Balisticast machines. They are out of business and I can find little info about them. The collator is set up to fill the tubes for the Camdex.Sweet machine, but it needs an automated Madter Caster and Star lubersizer to go along with it! And a whole team of monkeys to keep feeding components in.
Toyota still uses selectable shims in their OHC V-8 engines.
The bronze bushings are likely Oilite and virtually lubed forever. To relube them, remove and soak in acetone for a few days, dry eith a hair dryer or afternoon in the sun, and pressure-inject Mobil 1 synthetic oil back into them by filling the inside and squeezing between your thumbs until oil sweats out on the outer surface.
