Roy , I can get away with very little projects at work but if I spend more than 10-15 mins on a machine people start to wonder what I'm doing as I'm a "millwright" at a union plant and I'm not realy even supposed to be using any machines. And NASA would probably freakout if they found out i was making home projects let alone gun parts on they tools. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]
I do have a few friends that work for Textron and they can get away with small projects.
I realy don't have anyplace to use any good equiptment , I have a mid sized drill press with a compound table that I can do some pretty primitive milling on , this big end mill is going to be cut back to 1.355" so I can make my own bedding piller for Rem and the like rifles.
Shoot me an E-mail I might be able to round up some cutters they are always found hiding in my tool box at work [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] once a tool has been checked out odf the crip they are scrapped just incase its been damaged they don't want any chance of an out of spec cut being made on the tank , NASA got kinda touchy the last time a shuttle blewup.
