« on: January 24, 2017, 01:56:28 AM »
Material is Dura Felt.

Cutter is a punch from Harbor freight



Made some lube out of Bees wax and Olive oil, until I get some Mutton Tallow.

Good idea.....posting felt and punch source! I don't know if Durafelt sill offers this or not, but several years ago I bought roll end pieces at considerable discount. These were still large pieces, just not their standard size.

Dear Friends,
            Forget about the felt wads, Load the ball over the powder and pour the lube OVER the balls!  Save time, money, naand effort!
