Die use and life - documents available to members. CY 1878 added.

Post by RogerB » Tue Oct 13, 2020 3:33 pm

Here is a list of some of the dies used and average die life for several years. Rather than post all this individually and clog up the discussion board, I thought it more efficient to post this list.

Any member who wants a PDF copy of one or more documents, please send me a PM and I will send you the document (presuming the SW allows attaching PDF files to PMs.)

Some items are one page and others are 8 or 9 pages. If the files a member wants are large, I can email up to 22 meg; larger files require ftp via Dropbox or something similar.

Folks - when requesting files, please copy the names from the original post and put them into your PM request. That ensures I send you the correct documents. (I have more than 220,000 files in my little database, so I don't want to get something wrong and send you Russian files about the Gangut Ruble, or coin collections stolen by the Germans during WW-II. Only a small portion of my database is duplicated on NNP...mostly E-1 and some early E-235.)

I can set up a DropBox for these and give read access to whomever wants it, if that works for people.

A Dropbox file is an option, but let's see how much need there is for something to handle large files. The files are rather specialized and most will likely not need them for projects. PDFs up to about 22 meg are easily handled by email.

Roger, Many thanks. PM sent.
