    It's sounding like the 1894 44mag barrel then replace the forearm and hardware if needed is going to be the easiest way to go.

    Moleman- replied to a thread Framing gun in Our Town
    I bought a $80 refurbished stanley bostitch and use the whole head nails. Mine didn't look used as it had never had a fitting ever screwed in or any wear marks on the ram or safety guide. Figured it was a closed store buyout or basically they...

    Moleman- replied to a thread Coffee in Our Town
    Generally have half of a 12 cup pot at some point during the day. I can fill up my coffee cup almost twice from half a pot.... so I only have 2 or maybe 4 cups of coffee a day.

    I degrease before abrasive blasting anything that goes in the cabinet. That's not always possible and you're right if contamination is an issue boiling with TSP will help. If the parts are greasy you run the risk of peening grease into pockets...

    I used water to make sure any gas was out. There was also an oil sludge at the bottom that stunk of the smell they put in propane and NG to make it detectable.

    Good Job! I prefer manganese over zinc parkerizing so unless I'm doing a U.S.A. WWII gun it gets manganese. Tried several brands, even got manganese from a pottery place and made my own. Best/most economical one is Palmetto brand. Been using it...

    Moleman- replied to a thread Ruger 77/50 barrel in Muzzleloading.
    Have you tried calling McGowen? They make ML barrels for the Savage MLII guns, perhaps they also will make one for the Ruger. Might end up pretty close to a used ML in cost though.

    The flood coolant is nice on things like barrels where you're taking a long cut as you don't have to keep brushing chips or applying the cutting oil. As bangerjim said I usually do not use the flood coolant for perhaps 95% of the work that gets done...

    Yes, If you try any milling with a drill press if you're lucky the MT2 or Jacobs chuck taper will let go before wrecking the bearings or bending the spindle. Drill presses aren't designed for side loads.

    Similar story for me. Had shop class in high school and got to use lathes and mills, then basically nothing for 20 years when back issues started and I got a 9x20 lathe. 4 surgeries so far and counting and 10 years later I've got lots of spare...
