I use a commercial mold release agent in a spray can. As far as getting the stuff off I just tap on it with a brass hammer and then it chips right off. The rest is hot soapy water and a tooth brush.

Re: More bedding porn. . .

Great pics, great work. I'm assuming when tooling that the rpms are high but the movement is very slow. I find that, to work best when I want to avoid splintering the wood upon exiting, now that's with a router and I know yours isn't but wondering if the pricipals the same?

Re: More bedding porn. . .

I don't exceed 4k rpm most cases. Going too slow on the feed with a high spindle speed just means burned up tooling and cooked wood. As far as feed rates I run at a top of about 50ipm only because the mill I have will turn into a studdering fool if I try to run surfaces any faster. The mill I had at Nesika had much more modern software and higher spindle RPM capacity. I'd shred through stocks at over 300ipm! That was bad ass! Complete an entire inlet in about 4 and half minutes! Now it takes about 15-20. Still beats using lamp black and a scraper though!

My tool packages and tool paths are a bit different than what's commonly encountered when working with wood. Very, very rarely do I have an inlet "grenade" on me and require a bunch of repair work.

Cooked wood, learned that lesson a few times now I go slow just before exiting. Your tools and methods are I'm sure much more sophisticated than my home woodshop. Thanks for responding, it's interesting and your works amazing.

Thanks!

Not to sound like a cheese _ick but its that kind of encouragement that keeps me plugging along my own little path.

Had a killer barrel job tonight. Best as I can tell the chamber runout is .00007"

CHRIST. I need a "better" indicator. I'm sure its more than that but its what the little needle says so I'm gonna go with it!

Gnite all.

Thanks for posting. Now I gotta buy a CNC machine to bed my rifles??? Don't I have enough invested in guns and gear?

.00007 if my math is right that's 7/100,000 of 1 inch heck my micrometer only goes to 1/10000 of 1 inch and at .00001 I can't even see light between the space. Just thinking about .00007 makes my eyes sore.
