It's that time of year again. That Purple Martin's are back, the weather is reasonably warm and there's a nice breeze. A perfect time to spend a day casting bullets... except for our unpredictable rain showers. A fella sitting out in the open with a lead pot could have his whole day ruined by a single drop of rain. Here's my solution. EZ-UP shelter, set up with the legs left short. Gives good cover, fans provide ventilation and cooling that's nice when you're dressed in heavy leather. I've been doing this for more than 40 years and don't have a scar to show for it. Annual heavy metal screening is unchanged over the past two decades I've been tested. Aluminum road sign catches any lead splatter, and it doesn't stick or burn. Torch helps preheat the molds, since I will run several in a day and can't keep them all up to temperature on the edge of the pot. This was a hot day in August 2013.
