Re: Muzzle brakes that don't blow off

Nice job, thank you!

I'm curious (and ignorant), why do you advance the cross slide to finish the thread? I've never had any formal lathe training, just an old toolmaker growling at me when I screwed up and the South Bend book.

Bob, let me clarify. I mis-typed in that post and didn't catch it until it was too late to edit.

I cut most of the threads advancing the compound. This keeps the cutting on mostly one face of the cutter. Any time you cut on two surfaces of a cutter you are more likely to get hum and chatter. I finish the threads advancing the cross slide. This evens up the back face of the threads I have advanced along in steps. The final cuts using both sides of the cutter are very light, again to avoid chatter.

Re: Muzzle brakes that don't blow off

Looking at these types of threads and thinking back to the "metal shop" days in high school yeah don't let it "chatter" heh heh.

Grit thanks for sharing your expertise. I really enjoy this kind of stuff.
