I can't say how long it holds up for sure, I just scrub it out with a brush when it starts to clump a little. It can build up a little static once in a while, but am guessing that would go away with a soap wash like the plastic spoons for measuring.Nice work msellers.
How does tinplated-steel hold up to prolonged contact with blackpowder? (i.e., do you ever need to clean the inside or re-tin?)
great! what material did you use and how did you make it? it is killer!
I made it out of light gauge steel sheet, formed around a mandrel; then bazed to joint forming the tube. Once pickled to remove all the flux, and filed to clean up any overlap. Then the whole measure is fluxed, heated, and dipped into molten solder in my case. Finally, I heat and apply cold bluing in layers to form a patina I am happy with. Finish using shoe polish, and a wax waterproofer. Using a heat gun to melt everything into the outside of the measure.great! what material did you use and how did you make it? it is killer!
