    Clark replied to a thread New lathe stand in Special Projects
    When I was an engineer, my brother the machinist made twice as much money at JC manufacturing. They were really high end, making expensive parts per complex blueprints. They had a dozen different mills, some really big ones. They never leveled any...

    I built a 257 Roberts Ackley Rimmed 1885 falling block rifle. I had Norma 7x57R brass. I expected to be able to run fast powder , high pressures, and high velocities, like 3250 fps 115 gr. In 2012 I was 900 miles from home and reloading in my...

    I was grinding on the new hand until I had the cylinder timed. This may be the first time this revolver worked in 150 years.

    Clark replied to a thread New lathe stand in Special Projects
    I like to get them up on wheels; lathe, mill, shaper, table saw, band saw. I want a wide footprint, so they can't fall over. Right now my 2000 pound bridgeport is too heavy for wheels, so it is stuck. But my last mill was only 600 pounds, and...

    Clark replied to a thread Sporterized Arisaka in Military Rifles
    Here are some of my Arisaka 2016 project pics. I made a pillar for the rear and a recoil lug for the front. I made a scope base change radius. I drilled a hole in a scope base for the gas bypass in case of primer failure.

    I ordered and received some replacement parts. Yesterday I took the 1849 colt pocket revolver apart. It was made in 1859, covered in rust, and not working. The trigger spring / bolt spring was broken. The new trigger spring was too long...

    Clark replied to a thread Sporterized Arisaka in Military Rifles
    I have worked on a couple sporterized Arisakas that I re sporterized. They cost me $45 about 20 years ago. Now there are more. The extractor relief cut is about the only thing un Mauser like. Lots of cuts to make the Timney fit.

    I have a Colt made in 1859 that has very little of the grips left. It was all rust when I bought it. I have new grips made of Cherry that will take a lot of fitting. I have a whole bag of replacement parts to get it running again.

    My first No 4 Enfield scope base had an epoxy connection. That scope popped off with the first shot. That was ~ 17 years ago. Since then I have epoxy in compression. The shear and tension forces in any center fire are countered with drilled and...
