    I cut mine on one side using a 1/4" 2 flute end mill (AKA Slot Drill). Clamp the bushing end to end in the mill vise (so there is no compression on the slot you will be cutting) to give some...

    I like it.

    I've not had one stick to the point of feezing or using a hammer but I've had to rock a couple slightly to get them out. Pulling dead straight with the jack would be a lot less...

    If you want to build rifles, that means chambering barrels. It can be done on a big old lathe with a small hole through the headstock by running the barrel in a steady rest, and you can do some good...

    If you look closely at the picture of my 4J clamped on the wire ring you will see the wire is in a notch in the jaw. The cuts associated with fitting a barrel and reaming a chamber are light, forces...

    I have a 9x42 BP clone. It's done everything I have needed to do rebarreling, bedding, and making tools, etc.

    A wide range of spindle speeds is very handy. My mill goes from 80 rpm (nice for...

    I stuck the reamer I used to ream it into the chamber (it aligns perfectly) and measured from the top of the reamer shaft to the rear sight. Added half the reamer shaft diameter to that measurement....

    I did much like what you recommeded, but I just used the barrel OD at the point where the sight would be located. You are right, takes longer to describe it than to do it....

    Two things determine when I rebarrel or set back - what I see looking at the throat and the bore up to 2 inches beyond it with a borescope, and how it shoots.

    Thanks! That's exactly what I needed to know. I can take it from there. The chart answers my questions about height, and I have no problem setting it up in the mill to drill the holes centered on...

    I'm rebarreling a custom sporterized Springfield '03 that my father-in-law had built for my wife when she was in high school (1956 - 1960). It was test fired with military ammo that had corrosive...

    Got-er-done. Plan worked just fine.

    I won't repeat the plan, it's in the original post.

    This picture shows the setup with the receiver torqued in place on the barrel just before I unscrewed it to make the cut.
