  1. Enfield spares, thank you very much for your advice. It's gratefully received. 

     

    I meant to mention rebounding triggers in my post and only remembered after. I quite agree, having fired a non rebounding once before I can see how this could unfortunately catch the best of us out in the heat of the moment.

     

    I am able to buy at auction but have no experience of a gun auction...

     

    Thank you very much again,

    Kindest James 

  2. Thank you very much Old Boggy. It was very kind of you to send me the cartridges to get me off the ground, and so was the least I could do! 

    I am more than happy to do the same for anyone else with there own cartridges at no extra cost 😊 and I can Gold/ Silver plate aswell. 

    My thanks Again to this 5* PW member OB

    I am a recently graduated student with a great grade in History from a good University with plenty of Academic work and Reserves service to my name; with all of this all I can get is menial work. Therefore I am attempting to do something more meaningful than flipping burgers!

    I decided I would make something that I as a shooter would love to receive, of a quality I would enjoy wearing. Having worked in a jewellers whilst at University, I noticed how little variety and choice there was for men. These are different and elicit compliments wherever they're worn by myself, friends and family. 

    Perfect for impossible to buy for husbands, boyfriends, fathers, partners and brothers... Christmas sorted! 
     
    If anyone has had a memorable days shooting I would be more than happy to make a pair of cufflinks with your cartridges for you to remember your day by, at no extra charge. 

    Gift box available at cost for £4.50 including postage. 

    Many Thanks, 
    James

  4. Hello, 

    I am after some 20gague empties close to Colchester (I am near Marks Tey).

    I have seen plenty of these cartridge cuffliks in the past but never liked the fact that they use the full length of the brass and so stick out, pull on your cuff and just look naff. So The other day I made some of my own and think they have turned out rather well. I will 24ct Gold plate them when the solution arrives (I worked at a small family run jewlers as a Saturday job at Uni so know I can do a good job of this!).

    I shoot myself but not 20gague which is a nice size for them, so would really appreciate someone helping me out with some non rusty empties. I am sure I could send a pair of cufflinks back your way ?

     I have recently graduated from Uni with a good degree (2:1 in History from Bangor with lots of academic internships and other interesting bits such as farming and the Army Rezerves) but have had no response whatsoever from graduate jobs. I am not lazy so have been working hard doing menial work but I don’t feel bad saying I have skills that are just wasted there. I would like to move on one day, might as well start somewhere! So I thought with Christmas comeing up I would see if pepole could give some constructive criticism and might be interested in these cufflinks?!

    I was thinking £20 a pair posted

    £15 a pair non gold plated.

    I was also thinking if pepole had a particularly memorable day etc. I could make them with there cartridges if they posted them to me (I could also do this with 12ga and .410 and will try with a .308 over the weekend to see if I could do this with rifle brass).

    I have looked at boxes but all are rather expensive (I have spoken to my ex employer and they agree that they just are not cheap!) so I was thinking of supplying boxes if pepole would like at cost ?

    I would really apreceate any advice on what you chaps think ?

    Many Thanks, 

     James

  5. Thank You Walker,

    Perhaps I am unusual as a 22yo that I wear them the whole time, and usually dress smartly.

    However I agree,  I doubt I will be selling hundreds! But three pairs equals a days pay for me at the moment and I would much rather do this, something worthwhile for a day or two a week ? even if it doesn’t completely replace other things. 

    As for outlay, the gold plating is not insignificant, but also not prohibitory. otherwise it is postage, backs and my time... if I can make them in about two hours a pair than I am all good ? it’s a nicer way of trading my time for money than flipping burgers! 

    I am not poo pooing your response, I agree but anything is better than nothing ?

    (please see the edited section I have added regarding ones own cartridges and the new photo)

  7. Cheers Ill deffernatly have them if there 2 1/2 inch :)

    (sorry I diddent get on for a few days, but only have a W&S BA in .410 so dont et through many cartridges, but a nice fun gun to take out occasionally)

  8. I have spoken to him, there are no photos as he is elling it for an elderley friend. He has given me the frends number so shall give him a call.

     

    Now for a total nubie question... if you dont ask you wont know: What is a bushing?

     

    I have googled ect. and looked at pictures but cant quite work out what they are for?

    Re sizing the cartridge maby?

     

    Thanks, J

  9. I was just off to bed and then got hooked, I caried on going back to watch him do things again. Absolutly amazing!

    By far the best thing I have seen on youtube!

     

    I shall feel somewhat inadiquate next time I get my musket out :P

  10. The smallest you can load on a loadall is 70mm tried loading 67mm and it dont crimp them quite right

     

    Could you not just raise the carts up a bit with a little circle of wood or the like underneath? (sorry if this is ludecrous as I know nothing about reloading and can only picutre that bringing the cark closer to the drill press like thing might help with the leverage/ crimping issue)
