looks like you would have close to 900 invested in it before you got to see if it works!

there is so little lead involved that getting a good consistent product is very tough...maintaining the temperature of the mold is the big issue, but there are others. A multi cavity ball mold might work ok though.

...for his custom-built air-conserving, 70fpe Uberpumper (my personal nominee for the most powerful pumper in the world).

I dare say, with ideal conditions such as insulation and rapidity of the swaging process, the swaging dies would become red hot and eventually melt.

In order for the metal to actually be displaced, atomic bonds are broken and new bonds created.

So a question for the scientists:

Are the atoms heated by pressure prior to relinquishing their bond or is the heat produced as a result of the bonds breaking?
