Hopefully you are getting settled and things are going smoothly for you.  Looking forward to hearing about the swaging and seeing the results.

Save yourself A LOT  OF  TIME when lubing your cores. Instead of rolling each core on a lube pad just stand your cores up on a tray and spray them lightly with "Pam" available at your local supermarket.

This is the stuff your wife uses to spray down a frying pan before she starts cooking in it. One of the problems with using lanolin as a core lube is that it will build up in the swaging die and eventually prevent your bullet points of HP's from fully forming-so from time to time, clean the excess lube out of your dies.

GOOD LUCK!!!
