    That should work pretty well, especially on straight reamers. A bottle neck might be a little more difficult but could certainly be done. My harbor freight cross slide vise should be here today. It and an angle plate from grizzly should let me do...

    I decided to make a regular reamer instead of a D reamer. I don't have a mill, I cut the flutes with a dremel cut off wheel in a die grinder. Hardening and tempering went good. It cut as good as I expected but I wasn't expecting much. Certainly...

    Only your rifle can tell you what size mold you need. There are 2 schools of thought on this. Most of us have both. Take an egg sinker of a size bigger than your bore and push it thru your clean and lightly oiled barrel. Measure with a micrometer...

    While I have a weed burner that would probably work my plan all along was to use my coal forge to harden and the kitchen oven to temper. Looks like my first project will be a "chamber Reamer" for a set of lee type reloader for my 34 Roberts. Made...

    My first plan is to build a cherry/ D reamer for a boolit mold. The last one I made from a piece of key stock hoping it would cut aluminum. The combo reamer/cherry worked but dulled pretty fast and left the cavity undersized at the front band. I...

    Someone converted my 1894 porter machine works with a model A transmission and an electric motor. As I was contouring a barrel on it a few days ago it occurred to me that there was someone standing over this very lathe in the late 1800s Bought...

    Wolfer replied to a thread Barrel shroud in Special Projects
    I got a 3/8" by about 6" bar at Grizzly. It takes small carbide inserts. Yes I had to bore at both ends. At the breech I could do the first two steps. On the other end I had to extend it out as far as I could just to clear. The flex wasn't as bad...

    I need some schooling on drill rod. Mostly used for one time use as D reamers. Out of O1,A2 or W1 which is the easiest to harden. In searching the net there are lots of info but watching videos it seems most people don't do the oven tempering step....

    The last time I spoke with Jess he said he wasn't going to bore anymore military barrels. Things may have changed since then. There are lots of barrels available at a better price than a rebore if your wanting something common. My last rebore was...

    Wolfer replied to a thread Barrel shroud in Special Projects
    I think the main purpose behind this is that I have an old lathe that I've been trying to learn to use. I had bought a small boring bar but had never done any boring. I was looking for a boring project. As a side note I'm hoping this may alleviate...

    I don't have a 45-70 but I'm confident a 405 gr cast 50/50 at trapdoor or above speeds will handle anything on the North American continent if reasonably placed.

    I cant say I'm terribly offended by the steps in a military barrel. However I was looking for a lathe project and decided to try this. My plan was to bore each end about .002 small. Put the barrel in the freezer and the sleeve on the wood stove....

    Several places( brownells and Shaw come to mind) have short chambered, prethreaded barrels for Remington's. you just need a barrel vise, an action wrench and a reamer to set the headspace. Reamers can be rented. Where are you located?
