    The prints are complete sans dimensions. I will add them today and they are off to be checked by a professional Gunsmith. Do I have any doubts, absolutely not.

    SILENCE --- The absolute worst form of criticism known to man. There is one thing we all forget, we were all new at something one time or another. We had to learn, someone had to help. I didn't become a Master Machinist without the help of others, I will also be the first to help when others ask. Guess I am different. Thanks again to those who did come forward.

    What was the feed back from your gunsmith friend? Your project sounds great. I am interested in rail guns myself. I do not have access to the equipment or the knowledge to build one from the raw

    Could you email me a set of the plans you have? I will pm you my email

    Tim

    First off thank you for asking. Now as for the Gunsmith, he said it could be built as is but some points could be beefed up to make it safer. This is slowing me down a tad but by no means is it stopping me. I will do as he recommended and take them back to him. No big issues were found, just not enough attention was given to safety stops and such.

    Until one of these is built and tested I'm afraid no prints will be available. I cannot accept the responsibility that goes with it at this time. Sorry.

    Bill - are you building a rail gun without having seen one in person?

    If you had asked that last Friday Wilbur I would have had to say yes. Over the weekend I saw three of them still in their transport cases. I was there when they were set up, fascinating.

    OK then....you might just come up with something that will win. I hope so!!!

    Alternatively, you could think about it a couple of days longer. Just sayin' ! You've got all winter.

    I know with railguns the more you use one the more features of a different one you want.

    I wish to simplify its use. A lot of those bells and whistles seem to complicate.

    Is that side knob gonna have enough there to be able to really lock it down? You gotta really tighten that up or itll enlarge your groups

    I believe so Dusty, it is a 3/8-16 coarse thread. The knob is 1.250 in diameter. The ones I have seen are this size. If not there is plenty of room for correction.

    Wouldn't have it any other way Dusty. There are still a lot of things I will need help with I am sure.
