    LOL !

    I suppose the point here is that the information is easy to find if you take 10 seconds to look
    I agree, I am amazed sometimes how little people use Google, I mean in general, not members here, find anything on Google !!!! haah

    Its like those stupid ads for directory enquiries, just use google, get the number for free !! lol

ID:	480640The old Lines Brothers factory is about half a mile from where I sit typing this. It was there until about thirty years ago when the whole area was demolished and a new industrial estate built. Have a look on a map of Wimbledon for the junction of Merantum Way and Morden Road and the Lines Brothers factory was on the south corner.

    Because of their experience in casting Tri-ang toys made from zinc based pot metal they designed some expedient drill cartridges for .30-06, .9mm and .45 ACP. Examples shown in picture.

    Shame it got turned into an industrial estate. I bet the land around the factory was jammed with discarded casts.

    Nice drill cartridges. I believe Jayh found a whole stash of them on a site he digs.
