    Curse of setting up to do case forming again, strikes again

    Someone on here was good enough to make me a jig for holding 30-06, and another for 223, for cutting cases shorter.

    Only one problem - These jigs are FAR too wide to be held in the Harbor Freight chop saw I bought.

    The other photo won't upload (weird and annoying.) It shows that the plastic jig is ~1/4" wider than the jig will hold, otherwise the same.

    This has been pretty maddening...

    Yes, the ones I find for 308 to 45 SS conversion, though, are set up to cut the case WAY too short. Going to have to look at adapting one if I can't shave ~1/4" off the sides of these...

    I have a few of those jigs and all work perfectly.
    Good luck with your project sir.

    Mr Sheesh

    What is the maximum width of the chop saw opening?

    Would taking a 1/4", from each side) fit, or do you need more taken off the sides?

    What type of material is that case holder?

    I have a mill and can shave the sides, if you want to send them too me,
    the only costs will be, shipping back to you.

    Drop me a PM with the info, needed.......

    Tia,
    Don

    I think a local friend can do it for me; Like 2/3 of everything else, my best calipers are missing temporarily, I'll find them and measure. Something like 3/16" from each side will need to go, he has a CNC mill so it'll do

    I just use the L E Wilson case holder for the Wilson trimmer, case is held square, clamp a stop block on the rail for length.
