    I've had two lathes

    I had a 1943 South Bend 10L and now a central tool 13" lathe. Both of them have great spindles in them,. Both of them have no perceived runout in them. when using a tenth indicator. I think that is...

    The barrels I have set back

    I cut the tenon off and started over. They were long enough to allow that so i did and used my pins for indicating. I haven't done one using my new Spidah yet. When I git home, I have one I'm gonna...

    I think

    some folks think it looks better to not have a relief cut or they may think the barrel may be set back at some point and the relief cut would weaken extending the thread? Realistically, how many...

    I've never liked Wilson dies

    I have some of them but never use them. I graduated to a turret press years ago for my loading. Just my taste I know but my Harrell die is straight as is my Forster Micrometer Seater. I felt it was a...

    I don't recall

    but why would a professional do such a thing? I know for sure the one I has wasn't thread bound but don't know about the others.

    I have one of Kiff's rods

    I think it's called a range rod. It has slop between the bushing and the rod itself so there is a bit of droop. I didn't like that idea much so I use pins on both ends of the barrel. I indicate both...

    No expert here

    BUT there is the reamer and how it is directed to be considered I think. we only talking a couple of inches here. One can never really trust anything commercially made, from my experiences.

    Quite common, actually

    I once had an architect draw a set of plans for my dream home. The plans looked fine but when he brought a model of it he had put together, I hated it. This is the problem with building out of one's...

    Visual gap, as I recall

    I figured the problem must have been the barrels were either removed from their original setup then cut again or the cut coming back out wasn't enough to clean up the shoulder. Anyway, three...

    Al,

    I expected to see a younger man, for some reason. Did you see my question on your tuner weights?

    Thanks,

    A situation I have seen several times:

    I have seen at least 4 and mebby 5 rifles that came from more than one Smith with shoulders on barrels that weren't perpendicular to the tenon. How can this happen? Seems practically impossible yet...

    I have often heard

    one should pay as much for their scope as they have for their rifle. It isn't a bad theory.

    I have

    simply shot 6 MM bullets through the 30 barrel and it worked nicely. Stout load and plenty of neck tension. I have heard of others who have put a 30 BR chamber in a 6 barrel and that works good....

    Considering

    Weaver is no more, the Sightron looks good. I have one of the 36's and some 6X and have always had good rusults from them.

    I researched this subject once

    and what I read said it's the dissolved Aluminum in water that is harmful and there was no danger from particles such as those from aluminum pots, etc.

    My first custom RF rifle

    Came to me with a Fudd tuner on it. It worked the same way most tuners work. The thing I liked about it was the hole on it was the size of the OD of the barrel. I use to use it so that the face of...
  18. Personally

    I'd rather be Hoss Whipped than shoot 300 yards. Guess there are a number of others who feel the way I do. I have a few 300 yd Agg patches but never liked it.

    Some of the things

    I found interesting were the lapping of spacers for alignment and the air seal. Back when we were rebuilding a lot of spindles for shops grinding carbide there were no air seals nor were surgical...

    My former gunsmith

    This promises to be

    about as enduring as the AR class was I'd say. To old farts like me, a total waste of band width.
