Tired of seeing single shots yet???

Figured I'd better redeem myself with all the single shot stuff.

Here's a 6.5-284 huntin n killin gun that I'm wrappin up.

Here she is cookin away. . .




Right after beddin:



Machining for floor metal: 1:1 fit, no bedding here.



Oky doke, stock is finish machined top and bottom. Ready for the pad, some scrubbing, paint, and then the fun stuff. . .

Re: Tired of seeing single shots yet???

Here's the floor metal installed. I leave em a smidge over the stock because the paint will fill in the height. This way it's all flush when its done.







And finally, the barreled action sittin in its new home.



Tang is sitting up a bit because the barrel is lifting the back up a hair. No worries, CLEARANCE that LUG!! so that it doesn't hurt anything!!

Thanks for lookin!

All the best,

Chad

Re: Tired of seeing single shots yet???

I have to say, your bedding looks absolutely amazing... I've been utterly impressed with it every time I see some of your work. I'm sure the rest is equaly top notch, but the bedding is very visual.

I will probably email you in the next months about a build.

Great pictures. We always learn from your threads.

Looks like you erased the writing off the top of your vise. That's right, I saw it in your last bedding post. I got a good laugh out of it.
Thanks for posting. Chuck.

Re: Tired of seeing single shots yet???

Seeing your work pisses me off!

I'm still trying to get a smooth and finish on a project I'm working on.

The last thou, remembering to divide by two and final polishing is PUNISHING!

I'm gonna put a hobs on the lathe and keep track of its hours. Keeping track of my time is ludicrous and demoralizing ........but enjoyable.

Keep posting.
