Re: New type of Action Wrench
Bishop, I came to this site looking for info on some calibers I am planning on making dies for. Had I come here to advertise I would have put a bunch of contact info under my posts like I do on other sites. I have found some of the info which helped me, and today I was shooting pictures from the latest batch of Wrenches that I built. Knowing that for some reason... High-power shooters and Long range shooters like torque style wrenches, [while point blank benchrest shooters (with the most accurate guns in the world) know that a T handle wrench is good enough] would appreciate pics of a new design type of action wrench, through finding info on the very same site that I found my useful info.
The reason the best wrenches in the world only contact the action close to the front where the tennon of the barrel is, is so that any forces applied to the action, are only applied at the front. This keep you from putting the whole action in a twist while removing the barrel. You only want the torquing forces applied up where the threads are. The flat bar like the Davidson that has a hex on the back reminds me of something my Dad's Dad used to say. "Nothing is completely useless.... It can always be a perfect bad example".
