Day 1 – The Outcome

Ta da!  When I left for work in the morning, my newest creation was printing.  When I came back, it was done – it’s a “bleed tray”.  When swaging lead cores, they’re pushed through the die and the excess lead bleeds off through a hole in the side of the die.  Unfortunately, it drops to the floor.

This simple bleed tray solves my problem.  It’s not revolutionary, but it represents a huge breakthrough in how technology is accessible for us to solve problems.  More to come!
