    I REALLY hate to tilt the head so I used a sine vise to get the angle. After scribing the 'Mill To' line I substituted a 1/2" 2 flute carbide end mill. Just about done.

    ............I wished I'd saved the print from the first one but figured I'd never make another, but I did! The drop I'd bought at the steel place wasn't supposed to be hardened but the HSS bit in the flycutter was shooting off sparks like a...

    ...........I wonder if you'll have the same problem I had when I got my first Krag? For quite some time I'd work the bolt, then I'd HAVE to lift the bolt handle & peer into the action as I retracted it a bit. Just make sure it really did feed the...

    Well, here it is - dirt simple. The Geared reduction Motor Unit is clamped to a piece of Aluminum Stair Step Molding I picked up at a scrap metal yard (a favorite haunt) mounted to a piece of 4x4 I had laying around. I run it from an old...

    .............Ah yes, GOPHER SLAYER and I had a conversation on the phone this evening about this. I thought it was all a done deal. The other day he came by the house. The 38-55 is NOT a .375" anything. My edjumacashun with the 38-55 began when I'd...

    ............This is just me but to see what a "New to me" mould will do, after cleaning it up I dip an edge into the alloy and let it cook awhile. The blocks have been previously well cleaned and then smoked with a Bic Type lighter. The melt will be...

    I did exactly that same thing with a socket and small motor doo dad from a rock tumbler. Know a fellow who uses a drill and a wire that goes thru the primer hole - same idea. Wanted to make it a bit more sophisticated - didn't NEED to do it,...

    Been annealing with Pliers or by hand (with large Rifle cases) and dropping the cases in water to keep the base from getting hot. I was lusting after some better way to anneal and remembered some of the homemade devices here and on Youtube, so...

    I shoot the 300 gr Lyman and 340 gr Lee out of an old model Vaquero and a Miroku Winchester 92 which has a 16" twist. I quit using Lee tumble lube many years ago after going on a horseback camping trip. Getting back home and unloading the pistol I...

    .............Here in So.Cal (probably other places too) the mid/late '60's to early '70's (avoiding the worst of the 'Pre-Computer smog stuff) cars and trucks are selling very dear. A shooting buddy sold his '67 Ford F100 with 302 V-8 and 3 on the...

    I used Sweets 7.62 for decades, it works. I have used Barnes CR10, it works. Then I picked up a bottle of Montana Extreme Copper Killer, 50bmg special formula, it works mo better than the other two. Once you get a clean patch/no blue, scrub the...

    .............Wayne, not too hard. With a 28 tpi pitch a full turn would require you to remove .0357". Looks like 1/8 turn so .0045" would do, but you'd want it snugged up so take off some less (depending upon how tight it was currently). Always...
