It's taken about 250,000ish so it's not an overnight thing

Thats 500 tins!! or a tin a week for 10 years!! If your barrel is still ok then you must be doing something right.

Its also 4k at 8 per tin. I thought I was doing well buying 70 tins recently.

I have a mixture of methods. I use a few felts wet and dry with a pellet behind every 100 or so, and a wet and then dry pull through with my home made pull through once a month or every tin.
