If you cast your own bullets, Lyman introduced a new lead melting furnace earlier this year that may be of interest to you. The Mag 25 offers two improvements over prior models: digital temperature controls and a greater capacity.
The furnace temperature is controlled digitally from a front-facing control panel. In theory this will give the caster increased precision in obtaining and maintaining a temperature. The display shows the temperature setting and the actual lead temperature.
Capacity is 25 pounds, up five pounds from the company’s Mag 20 furnace. Lyman states this unit is designed for the high-volume caster.
Additional features of the Mag 25 include a universal mould guide, a pre-heating shelf for moulds, bottom pour valve and a built-in storage compartment. The Mag 25 is available in both 115v and 230v varieties. MSRP is $310.
