    A nicholson Bastard cut is what I use the most. It removes a lot of metal quick. I have "safed" one of the edges, thats a fancy way of saying that I used a grinder on one of the edges to remove the teeth and make it smooth. The next most used is a...

    I started my build with what I had, side grinder, hacksaw, and hand files. That worked out well for the majority of the roughing out and initial shaping. What I soon found out was that things were not as square and flat as I thought but they would...

    Not much to update. I am spending most of my time learning how to use the combo machine and figuring out what gets priority in the money spending department for it. I had to attempt to remake the hammer because I got a little carried away with the...

    Thats awfully generous of you sir. I will probably take you up on that offer when I get closer to stocking the Beast. I believe that will most likely be several months from now. I think that I will end up remaking every part of this action at least...

    Ohhhh, I havent quite made it that far yet. This is a heck of a learning curve in here for me. I am not a machinist and this is my first serious project in steel. There have already been some spots where i had to back up and have a "do over" and I...

    No sir, there is no explanation on which parts to harden or how to. The book uses 1018 mild steel in the action except for one part. That part will be contacting the head of the cartridge and it calls for any tool steel. I plan on case hardening the...

    This winter I have casted most every scrap of lead I had and there isnt any empty brass laying around the shop either, so I started looking for another project. After surfing the net and reading a lot, I decided to give Frank Dehaas's Chicopee...
