    Post #2, by Pete, also has a working URL, but you have to join the woodworking forum to get it. I'm not a woodworker, but some of the things some of those guys do is amazing even to a machinist.

    I suggest making your cannon a replica of a pre 1898 military artillery piece, as I believe such copies are acceptable as reenacting guns. Fixed ammunition, that is the case powder and projectile...

    Agreed, and I can see it's a waste to "Cast my pearls before swine" by pointing out the real cure, beyond quoting John Adams;

    "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It...

    As mentioned, a blind cut to a solid bottom would be very difficult and, as mentioned, tedius at best, edm maybe?

    Thanks for the responses.
    The M code we needed was M06, or M6, for "Dwell" as we have to do a manual (Air powered) tool change.
    As a deadline was upon us my poor employee worked OT until 10 PM...
  7. Back in time, need Bandit Control M codes list.

    Our Fadal broke down and we are forced to write our program over for the old Shizouka knee mill to get the customers parts out. I spent some time looking through the manul but couldn't find a list of...

    My lyman electronic trigger scale went bonkers, which is why I washed my hands of electronic liars.

    I also have an Oliver of Adrian filer which a member of this forum sold me a few years ago. I disagree with the sentiment that they are not very useful, it depends on what you are doing, for...

    Thanks Rivett, I've always wondered about this. It's entirely possible the holes were used for both the drill and holding soft jaws in place, by guys like me who would never have thought of the bow...

    I had a gal working for me once who, if a part was a couple thousandths to big, would force a mic to make it read what she wanted it to. She didn't last long (Needed work, a freind of the family...

    I made up a set of weights using a gram scale. I made the frame out of 1/4" diameter stainless rod, attached that to a 1 lb. round weight I made of 303 stainless bar so it weighed a total of 1 lb,...

    FWIW I like the fact that it's branded by the maker's name, instead of rebranded. An old machine tool dealer once told me that they sell the best lathes with their own name on them.

    Mill the top of the shelf where the crack shows, nice and flat. Drill and tap four 5/16-18 holes using a mill with DRO, then make a steel plate to fit that is 5/16" thick top to bottom and as wide as...

    Thermite,
    I'm also a collector of Spanish automatic handguns, though I'm not familiar with the models you mentioned. I do have a model A in 9MM Largo and many others. It's said that the Star A's...

    Thanks, and I'll also call that phone number.

    The weak area in these is the cross piece that is all that keeps the slide from coming back into the shooters face, if it broke. I loaded a couple...

    I knew someone would want a visual. The problem is we don't leave it set up except once every few years to replenish our stocks, these are brass plugs about 1 1/2" diameter and total length about...

    A new one for me a few years ago was the callout "4140 HRAR", which I was told is "Hot Rolled As Rolled" and apparently simply allowed to cool after hot rolling which made it 28-32 Rc. We have made...

    BTW, the reason I handed it over to the gun smith was in hopes he would reblue it. The gun was given to me with bad pitting on the sides of the slide on one side. I made a special holder for the...

    We do it all the time. Brass part, square hole, limited overall part length. We turn the face .060" away from final face and cut a 45 degree bevel at the hole entry, as normal practice. I made a...

    It works, but with "Staging" I expect. I use a powered hydraulic press that's limited to 14" of travel, which is plenty for pistols.

    I've thought about that, the equipment, though it cost us plenty, is older and not worth much, plus the market is flush with machine tools. The property is worth a few hundred thousand, but that...

    There was some use of small steam engines for dedicated fractional HP use, the same as we'd install a 1/4 HP electric motor today. It may have been a working engine, is that possible?
