    Jackie,

    Jackie,

    18 lathes?! Holy cow...no idea the business had that many. If you ever get bored, I'd love to see a list of what you got. I'm kind of a lathe nerd...I find them fascinating.

    Rifle Woes

    Gents,

    I just completed a build for a friend, and the confounded thing will not shoot! While I haven't built a lot of rifles, the ones prior to this have all shot well right out of the gate. I...

    No idea, but those threads will sure hold oil!

    Interested to hear what caused that. Maybe the insert wasn't tight in the holder, or there was a chip between insert and holder?

    Bench Top Bead Blast Cabinets

    Gents,

    Do any of you guys have smaller, or bench top bead blast cabinets? If so, what have you got and are you happy with it, and what compressor are you using to run it?

    Thanks,

    Butch,

    My guess is that the barrel OD looked like a limp noodle to begin with, hence the straightening.

    I agree...bores are not drilled in an arc. But a bore certainly could be arced due to...

    Did you ever work with a chrome dome with the last name of O'Donohoe out there in Palmdale in the late 50's early 60's?

    Jackie,

    Does the rudder stay in the lathe during the straightening process or is it fixtured elsewhere?

    I've never had problems parting or crunched a tool, but every time I part steel, I THINK I'm gonna have a problem!
