Sorry, you may not have been born back then,,,my bad, but it was famous "..." back in the day. We only had wood working tools so I built a cedar bedroom suit. Your work is impressive!!! Full speed ahead.
Don't know the quote. Must be a little wet behind the ears yet. Cedar bedroom suit? Gonna have to bite my tongue . Thanks for the compliment!

You do nice work and I say that from experience. I like assemblies to fit...just so.

I always lead in with the compound as well, except coarse pitches where root depth is sufficient to preclude chatter.

However, I triple charge when customers are in my shop. I've never liked people watching me, they always have too many questions that I don't have the patience to answer. Especially when running the Tig. Takes a lot of concentration at my age to get a nice even stack of dimes.....

Now you've got my interest so I too want to see more.....
I should wear the safety glasses. Can't keep 'em clean. Sometimes they are a must have.

Some things require undivided attention. Lots of times the doors are shut and the phone is ignored. I don't mind folks watching. I like to show and tell. Things take a looong time though.

Thanks for the compliments and interest! I'll do some more threads.

What would you normally charge for a job like this? I can't seem to get your website to work. Nice work!

Re: Muzzle brakes that don't blow off

Nice step by step tutorial.

Speaking of brakes blowing off...A guy showed up at the range with a small brake installed on a 505 Gibbs. First shot the brake disappeared. The threads on the barrel were undamaged. A few weeks later I found the brake in the 110 yd berm and those threads were perfect! We theorized the brake was too small for the volume of air pressure created by the Gibbs. It had to expand then blow off. I never saw the gun owner again so I kept the brake.

Welcome to LRH and enjoy!

I can't get it to open either - server not found.

Anyways, most smith I've seen charges $100-$150 for an installation + cost of the muzzle brake.

Brakes are $100
Installation is $100
Coating (if required) is $20

I'll see what's wrong with the website. Meanwhile, feel free to call,
