Vitual Tour of LongRifles, Inc.

I think I finally got this "turd" polished the way I want it. Maybe the OCD is subsiding a little (NEVAH!)

Just in time to pack it all up later this summer for the move into the new building! Woo Hoo! 3000 square feet of gunmaking, girlfriend harrassing (molesting) mayhem.

Here's my cave:

wow! that's a really nice workshop! You must really be odc, by looking at your cave and your bedding jobs, i think it's a pretty accurate diagnosis

Awesome shop. It looks cleaner than a hospital!!! Can't wait to see what your new setup is going to look like. Are you going to have reinforced floors under your mills? Are you going to have them on separate slabs so vibration from one doesn't effect the other? Or does that something your not going to have to worry about?

14" slab with 5/8" RB spaced 6" OC. In floor heating, 14' ceiling, central air, 2x8 or 2x10 stick building. 800amp main with a voltage conditioner.

Should be pretty nice. Hope to have a dry shell in about 8 weeks. Breaking ground next Wednesday.

Debated on the isolated slabs. The in floor heating would make this a bit more work so going to bow out on that part. I know I preach it a lot here when the subject comes up, but I think with a 14" slab I'll be fine. Gun work isn't super invasive/hard on the machines anyway.

Thanks guys. Been a pile of work, but it's coming along. Almost there. . .

My new Royal carbide tipped CNC live center arrived yesterday morning. WHAT a difference! Very cool piece of gear.
