I did it on my CNC. I have a 4 axis mill and two slant bed turning centers.

Re: portable barrel vise?

I built a portable barrel vise and portable action wrench for a hunting buddy to make his Savage a switch barrel.

I met with him in his state and showed him how to use it with my Savage rifle.
I took the barrel off and put it back on.

5 years have gone by and I don't think he has used it.

It took a long time to hog out parts from 2x2 steel.

But I did learn the error in the McFarland book design for Mauser action wrenches.
But I did learn how to make a portable barrel vise, so I made another one as an action wrench for round receivers.

Re: portable barrel vise?

Well I put this together today.

the metal is 2" x 5/8" Alum. the long piece is 24" long, with Walnut blocks and 5/8"x5" bolts
total weight 4 lb 10 oz with wrench
Granted this won't take a factory barrel off but mine are laped and tightened to 100 ftlbs with grease on the threads they come off easy.
