Instructions and Help about Will Form 8815 Calculator

Alright guys today I wanted to do a quick tip and we are going to be talking about calculators because smart people use calculators right so I'm not going to be talking about this kind of calculator I am going to be talking about a lead alloy calculator I'm going to show you what a let alloy calculator is and kind of briefly just how to use it and where to get it this one I have I got off of the cast bullet forums and it is made by bumpo 628 and I think it's been revised several times and there have been contributions made by other users but what this spreadsheet or what this calculator can do is it can tell you well it does so many things up but what it can do is it can help you to calculate your hardness of your alloy the cost the percentages of tin antimony copper silver lead arsenic all the contents of your of your lead alloy that you're going to be casting bullets from and so what this allows you to do is to say for example I have like two or three different alloy sources one of them is from stained glass window scrap I have a friend who works at stained glass window shop and he i bided a scrap from them and they turn it into pizza money or whatever and the other alloy I get is there's a guy on Facebook that I order scrap its a mix of foundry type and monotype and so it is really hard stuff hard enough that you could just snap it in half it won't Bend it'll just snap and so I have this super hard alloy and then I have this stained glass window scrap and then also occasionally I get some really pure stuff the stained glass windows scrap is is pretty pure and soft also so what that allows me to do is to say for example in a casting manual there are known alloys that you cast with and some of them for example are say biotype peer-led ten to one twenty to one Lima number two hard hard ball alloy lots of different kinds of alloys and so each of those has a known content of tin antimony lead and copper silver let arsenic if the manual calls for lineman number two then I can look at this calculator the spreadsheet and say okay that has five percent ten five percent antimony that's that's it and then the rest is led so it's like 90 percent lead and it will have a Brinell hardness of fifteen so say I want to do like a lineman number two alloy but I just have these two out let alloys that I have which is you know say like peer led and the monotype so what I can do is I can see okay it has Brinell hardness of fifteen I can enter in on this lead alloy calculator how many of pound ingots of each that I will put in and it will tell me the Brinell hardness of my alloy and well an estimated hardness and then so I can get an alloy that is very close to the lineman number two even though I don't have the specific lineman number two alloy and that's the same thing if I wanted to make a you know like a hardball alloy or some some of the others like what are some of the others like forty to one thirty one twenty five to one wheel weight and so I can I can use the alloys that I have and come up with some of these other well more well-known ones if that's what I want to do the other thing it allows me to do is say if if I just want to say experiment so for example the last video I did with testing the lineman pot I did four ingots of of the soft peer stuff that I had just melted down is really close to pure and then I did one ingot of the monotype and you can go down and you can see that it is 1.8% ten three point eight percent of antimony no arsenic copper or silver and about ninety four point four percent lead and the estimated hardness there's about twelve point six and that's about what I was hoping to get with those 45s I didn't need anything really hard or really soft I just wanted something that was a little bit softer so then 45 ACP maybe some forty five cold so that's that's how you can use this alloy calculator to kind of estimate your your Brinell hardness and your content of tin and antimony and lead and and whatnot so smart people use a calculator and Mark Castor's can use a lead alloy calculator so until next time later Music you you
