Re: cutting a die to make a wildcat
I chuck them up in the lathe and use good carbide inserts on my heaviest tool to cut them and bevel all the edges then hit them with some 600 grit wet dry to give them that final polish on the edges. Any more I just have the print go to Whidden when I order the reamer and I have the correct dies show up at the same time as the reamer.
