I no longer have access to many of my detailed ME design material.
Working over wide temperature ranges...
You can isolate the holy wood using some shellac.
I was looking at my small spray set last night.
A lot of aluminum parts in there.
Blue chemicals tend to eat at aluminum pretty badly.
There are vanishingly few "dumb questions" when screwing around with 50,000+ PSI chamber pressures.
Gins often used carefully optimized screw...
Green is usually copper corrosion.
Bullet jackets (AKA 'gilding metal') are NOT the exact same materiel as brass cases.

Nothing wrong with a thin steel washer to set headspace correctly.
My 1866 looks like it was exported, never used, and then imported back into...
