Oil Filter Disassembly

So I've been running my engine a little bit, trying to break it in. I've got exactly 1.0 hours on the tach. I've been noticing some alarmingly low oil pressure readings. Like, 30 psi cold, and less than 15 psi when warmed up. Engine RPM doesn't seem to affect it. I posted a question to the CorvAircraft mailing list, and a suggestion was made to cut apart the oil filter. So I did that, and I found a lot of coppery-bronze material in it. I'm not sure what it is. I guess it's time to start asking some more questions.

Total Time: 1.0 hrs.
