Thread: Identify these thingys if you can.

  1. #1

    Identify these thingys if you can.

    Does anyone what these are?

    The spindle on the die measures .300", could it be for 257 Roberts?

    the gold one in pic 2 looks like a bolt disassembly jig. the 3rd pic is for sure a jig made for holding a bolt handle on a bolt for welding.

    is the Jig worth anything, thinking about modifying it to hold the probe for my PID

    4th pic is a Herter's primer pocket swage die - missing is the button to swage the primer pocket.

    I believe the first one to be an expanding mandrel for use I a lathe. It allows a part to be set up on the bore between centers. It is placed in the bore and tapped to expand tight into bore then the part is machined. To remove its tapped in the other direction

    pic 3 is for lining up and welding bolt handles on a rifle to put a low mount scope. I have done many mauser and o3 bolts with one.

    No4 was like I'm so dumb for not recognizing it. When I read the above description.

    I wonder why the thing in the first picture was with the 12ga reloading stuff.

    My guess would be that someone who had no clue tossed it in with that stuff "Eh, must be reloading stuff too", I've seen people do that sort of thing before. "Helping" someone, so your critical part of a rifle die ends up in the car parts box or with the machine tools or something. NEVER do they ASK someone who knows! LOL

    First thing is a dent raiser I believe. Second is a bolt toll for assembly/disassembly. Third is a bolt welding jig.
    You can miss fast & you can miss a lot, but only hits count.
