Why yes it is alot of great's. But then she is one great person. I was over her house last weekend. She gave me another bucket of WW when I was over there. She just got home from her wagon wheel balancing job. There is alot of demand for that!! You know?? Tom.

That's true. I get my wagon up to 18 mph. Shakes like crazy without a balance.

I tried WW lead in Lee Real bullet mold in a muzzle loader maybe twice. The bullets were so hard you had to start them down the bore with a hammer !
The was the end of that .
