    So if the parts go out for plating, and come back looking like crap because of the material, is it your problem or theirs?

    Thanks Peter.

    I recall someone pulling one apart awhile back. I hoped photos would be posted, but obviously missed them.

    About what I expected from the manual. I was hoping there was something...

    I recall a flex housing around the wires inside the cover. I think the telescoping tube can come un-telescoped if you crank the carriage as far as it will go to the right. Might require removing the...

    McMaster-Carr. Drill rod, W-1, O-1, A-2, pick your poison. Or precision ground 4140 or 416 is available by the foot if you prefer.

    I need any hand tools these days, I order from McMaster. Dont know what brand I'm gonna get, and don't care. I just know it's not gonna be crap and that's good enough.

    A couple different sizes of gauge pins, measuring between them, and a little math will get you in the ballpark of angle and size.

    And then you tweak in a scrap for a reference.

    Re crown on the punch,

    We had a problem with slugs pulling up on the pilot holes in progressive dies. Thin material. I found stoning a small chamfer on the edge of the punch kept them in the die....

    Leave it in the bag until the red color goes away. That should eliminate the worst of the decarb.

    It's a rotary bolt, locking into the trunnion with the barrel. And they make the rest from sheet metal. That's not to say the bolt carrier won't exit the back of a cast beer can housing. Or the...

    Couldn't be anywhere near as bad as a Monarch EE. A rebuilder told us they were about 7k, and that was 35-40 years ago. But even at 70+ years old they're better than mine.

    Another crazy idea was...

    I have a piece of hollow Thompson shaft that was a bit crooked. Put it high side up and gave it a good whack with a dead blow mallet. Dead straight. May have just got lucky.

    Mine is noisy too. Rather, I'd say its loud. I think it's probably normal, it sounds the same whether the spindle is running or not. There's just a fair bit of stuff spinning in there, some of it the...

    I generally cut to fit, for whatever POS M-70(0) is in hand. Cutting a stub first gives me something to write down for reference, as well as something to stick the action on to see how much I might...

    I'm wondering what the new 660 is going to go for. Bigger than I'd want, but the extra Z travel might be nice.

    I've used a couple Roll-in saws. HATED THEM! I'd do without if that's all I could get. Although the table was handy for smacking copper bar on to straighten it.

    Pitch diameter of a 1-1/16-18 is 1.025. 16 TPI a bit less. A 1" thread mic should do just fine a turn or so off the end of the scale. My $60 bought at auction Tesa matches thread wire measurements...

    If you're on the back side, in reverse (threading from the inside out), the tool has to be right side up. So you need a left handed threading tool. Which makes it a lot easier to see what's going on....

    The rears would be back to back, either made as a duplex set, or preloaded with spacers in your case. The outer races float in the housing.

    Advantage over radials is you can set the clearance....

    Since you're going to blue vs CC, why 8620? I'd be looking for a chunk of 4140 rather than welding up pieces. But then, I'm not a welder.

    Looks fairly straight forward. But I'm not the one holding the part.

    I'm guessing you're after what looks like a curved face in there, that's not millable?
