You are right it is all fun, sometimes I just get too much fun, or am too worn down to go have fun. That was the case yesterday. Now I am sitting in the office wishing I was in the shop
Hopefully, I am going to retire from what I do now and have fun full time in the next few years. I never ever want to do this as a living, learned that much. I only want to do it for fun.
Thanks again for posting that video it was very informative and the quality of the videography was very good. I had never heard of that paste solder. I have to get some of that stuff.
I am guessing the dimensions of the cuts are going to vary by manufacturer of the the extractor to be installed. Do they send the dimensions when you order the part? I have a 223 bolt faced bolt that I bushed the firing pin and opened the bolt face for .308 already. So I am now ready to give my first sako extractor installation a try. So your tutorial had great timing.
I am making this as a replacement bolt for a switch barrel gun I am taking on a pdog hunt in July so I can swap my 14T 22PPC into a 8T 22-6.5x47. I probably could have just slightly opened the boltface so it would work with both but wanted to do it for the experiance.

This stuff is supposed to be fun, when it feels too much like work I'll probably give it up.
