    I did a thorough sweeping of the floor. As usual, I used a magnet over the sweepings. Now I need to find where the spring and 2 set screws came from. At least I saved them from the trash.

    Most refrigerators and freezers made since the 60s have magnetic door seals that don't mechanically latch. They are well insulated to maintain an even temp, and a desiccant can will keep them reasonably dry. Although not the SAMI listed...

    It tastes like - buffalo! One of the only meats I know that is better eating right from the carcass still warm, than hung and cooled.

    About 15 years ago the CZ52 in 762-25 was a popular import. As a group, 8 of us bought them from Ohio Guns. Not the easiest to become proficient with, but a good defense weapon at the price. We also got about 1000 rounds each of the Berdan...

    I don't have a lot of faith in game biologists. We have a couple here that can't tell a grizzly from a black bear, and insist the flying squirrels we have here don't exist in Montana.

    Didn't see what you'r using for frame material, but even thin gussets at frame joints will be a plus with very little added weight.

    I use a lot less air pressure than 60 lbs. The air pressure needs to be balanced with the lube softness.

    In the top R hand pix, what am I seeing that sticks out from under the primer tray? It must be something you used to prop it for the pix. I'm interested, although I have no idea why. I already have 3 of them.

    I would only recommend ultrasonic for smaller batches. The rotary tumblers w/SS pins for large numbers, and vibrators for light duty. The cons are rinsing, dirty water disposal, and drying with ultrasonic and rotary, lead-laden dust from...

    My first rifle (22LR 552 BDL) and shotgun (1100 BDL) were Remingtons but that was late 60s and everything has suffered since then. Glad I still have them since I couldn't afford to replace them. From top of the heap to bankruptcy is a big fall.

    While I can't speak for gunsmiths, I'd much rather have a gemstone cut by a talented hobbyist than a commercial or professional. I dare you to find fault with any stone I've cut but can find faults in all "professional" cuts. They can't take the...

    Why do you need the hole drilled? If you have the tools to make the point form die, drilling the hole shouldn’t be a problem. It would in fact be better to drill the hole and finish the rest of the point form die without removing it from the lathe...

    I'd ask for a few professional estimates, make an average in price. Then inform others involved of what you found on pricing, see what they say.

    I can finish the wood, but can't do any other work on the gun considering my ffl doesn't cover gunsmith work. Wood would need to be removed from the gun, as the barreled action can't be left on the premises, again due to ffl regs.
