I'm not a hardcore, competitive bench guy or any thing like that. However, I shoot well enough that I can appreciate a good rifle. The kit would allow me to do the actions at my house and then just spend one day at my buddies house on his lather to fit the barrel and do the crowns.
With our schedules, especially mine, that would make the logistics of getting together ALOT easier. So, I figured if they do an above average job it would probably be worth it.
I have not used a PT&G Truing Kit but any good tool will help. Over the years I have built most of
my tools not so much from a cost savings but to get a better understanding of what it takes to
do precision work.
I like seeing someone that is interested in learning the gun building craft from the ground up
and recommend starting slow and building rifles for your self ONLY until you have mastered the
art of making accurate rifles. even if you don't build rifles for others it will help you appreciate
a Good Gun smith when you see there work.
Rule # 1 ; DON'T TAKE ANY SHORTCUTS. Handling 65,000 psi + is dangerous and can lead to disaster
Rule #2 ; Don't be afraid to get help or advice if you are not sure about a process or your abilities
it takes years to learn the skill.
Rule # 3 Plan your work and work your plan. Measure twice and cut once.
And Always prof test remotely just to be sure.
