    Unless your heat treat shop has never done large pieces of A2, you have said they know how to do it and you have been happy with their previous work.
    Maybe your supplier pulled a piece of O1 off...

    Remember the speeder ratio has to be taken into account when single pointing threading. A belt drive may not work for threading at all as any slippage would wreck your threads unless the belt was a...

    I would compare the cost of a smaller lathe as an addition if you have the room.
    I have made the comment before when posters have asked which lathe to get: Get them both, you can not have too many...

    They may very well be driving machine shops out. I flew out there once to look at an HLV-H and the sales man told me the same thing 25 years ago. We drove by the Skunk Works building as it was being...

    Kurt,
    Did you have to register with ITAR or file paper work or anything? Your are a distributer, did the manufacturers of your product have to do anything? Or do you make the items yourself?

    Another solution could be to Loctite the bonze in. With a precision slip fit then Loctite you do not get the distortion and shaving that happens with a heavy press fit.

    I think these creatures are available for mills, maybe called speeders. For a lathe you might have to buy an under drive unit and change the gearing if the bearings can take it?

    I thought the thread had run its course. Now I wish I had started a new thread,
    Sorry.

    There is a company making scope mount bases for Krags, that would have to be considered an improvement of the original military arm, I will check with them if they deal with ITAR at all.
  12. If all those Krags were still in use and the...

    If all those Krags were still in use and the owners wanted to replace the screws that amount to a large demand. Many were lost in battle, and today sharks are dismantling them to sell parts. Still...

    Got a question since this thread has had a bunch of experts contributing. How about making reproduction sight, side plate and barrel band screws for 1894 through 1903 (Model1898) Krags. For those...

    I recently purchased bearings for my HXL from Hardinge. Evidently they were the same bearings for an HLV-H and still very reasonably priced.
    Hard to believe they are modified by lapping and still...

    That was my thought, why don't we see double start taps in the catalogs. The OP's needs were for exactly 16 turns per inch? If close enough is good then a double start "28 tpi" would give 14 turns...

    Saw that thing sideways and thought the stinking riggers dropped another one. Glad that did not happen, it just ruins your day. Hope it cleans up and runs nice. If it does you will be a happy camper....

    You have a day job and hopefully not making payments. If so there is no real pressure. I made a good living looking for over priced hardware and making it cheaper. Shear screws and core cables for...

    Has the barrel been assembled and fired and you want to change something? Did it work alright before?
    I recently built a 35 Krag. The original reamer was too tight just in front of the rim and...

    Pardon us for being concerned about your health. You asked your question at the same time vaping deaths hit the news cycle. Turns out the cause maybe vitamin E oil(think vegetable oil). I have a...

    Liltlerob, hit on what is happening. Material is welding to the top of the cutter then letting go. My home shop lathe was a South Bend 9C and I could get a good finish on 1018 even at the low speeds...

    Found this out the hard way on a leased machine. It took many days to clean the vegetable oil off it. Latest research on vaping injuries and deaths says it is the vitamin E oil that is the primary...

    I am not up on all the threading units that Hardinge made for the chuckers. I ran one of the air actuated automatic units one day. At another shop I watched a foreman use a manual threading on a...

    I do not think it is about the money, I think the goal is to bankrupt Remington, then make a run at the rest of the gun manufacturers.

    On my Lagun and bed mill I just pulled the units out and installed them so the handles are in the back of the quill casting. Gravity is on my side now and the handle is out of my way.
