All that is left to do is final fit to the stock and polish.I know you guys have seen this already but I am pretty proud of my machine work on this project.
Vaquero was right - you should be proud of your work on this. And we're all proud of you, and proud to be associated with you.
did you see this?i machined this out of 2 blocks of aluminum.i am finishing it up tomorrow.
a rubber pad on it?
yes sir ive seen all the pics, good stuff.
no because this is one a .22 project rifle being built as a target rifle so recoil is not an issue.besides,then the nice milled finish on the rear surface would be a waste.if it was anything more than a 22 it would get a rubber pad over the end cap.
any larger cal might deserve 2 rods instead of one you think?
Man I miss machining, I was a tool&die maker
What kind of mill do you have...Bridgeport? Just curious, very nice work by the way.
Sorta wanted to see the finished product, Figured it would be good, but this thing is about as close to perfect as you can get.. Fit, Finnish. Everything about this project is out of the ball park. I like the four channels you milled in the butt section as well.. This makes me want to take a chance on pulling those bbls.. are maybe just cutting them back to 3"..
thought you were out for the evening
i am working tomorrow with a old skool machinist(so i can learn how to turn threads on a lathe)i am gonna pick his brain about your project.the issue is building a jig to hold the front site while soldering it back on.i am trying to solve this issue for you cause i know you want to do this project and i want to do it for you...
the mill I am running is a BridgePort and the lathe is a milspec 24 inch x 6 foot bed machine(forget the name)that came out of Boeing 30 something years ago.very solid and true machine.anyhoo,very nice equipment I have access to.I can use it whenever I want to.I just help the ol' boy with his projects when he needs a hand and he enjoys teaching me to do this stuff.he believes in a machine being used and not sitting around gathering dust.maybe I will post a pic or 2 of the "workplace".
see my latest project?
