Re: Scope Lapping

Thanks for the reply Bruce. After taking picture I lap another 15 minute before I made contact with finish in center of Ring. I did notice when torquing down screws there was no movement in scope which is another plus.

I lap both the saddle and cap, partly because I want the cap to be as cylindrical as possible, and partly because it's easier to get a good lap on the saddles when the caps are holding the lapping bar down on both rings. When I use a reamer, the caps must be in place.
