Your way of heat treating and my cleaning methods worked well together. :smile:

Micheal wrote:Nice Bruce... That poison pill ring is a dandy... and I too learned something new...I have always heated the rings... just never in hot water. I always used a propane torch. Many thanks Daniel.. I will try it on my next squashed ring Micheal

We can all learn something my friend. :tu:

I don't know how you waited so long before heading back for your Raptor, but if you ever want to lose one in my neck of the woods feel free. Nice going gents!

John, Fred got the ID and you put me onto the exact one. https://picclick.com/Vintage-Metal-Case ... 90842.html
The Raptor was in an area the I had no doubt that no one would stumble upon it. I just wanted to get it and not waste Daniel's digging time. So I made sure that he was finding stuff then I went and picked it up.
