Re: Pictures of Damaged Brass
In addition to pics there is a sure-fire way to find cracked brass in particular and it is very easy and nearly fool proof.
Take a handful of brass, put a known piece with a crack in it with the good brass and just shake it in your hands or pour it back and forth between one hand and the other and listen as the cracked brass makes a very definitive, and unmistakeable sound. Remove the cracked brass from the good brass and pour or shake them again and you will hear the difference. So in the future if you are making your initial check, if you have any cracked brass in your lots you will never have trouble finding it again.
Hope this helps all who have never tried it as it really does work and is quick and easy.
