    Glad to see some one finaly make a video and put it on the web.

    It looked great and had every thing that some one wanting to know about blueprinting a action would want to know.

    thanks for the video. After machining, do you reinstall the bolt handle to take up the excess length?

    Awe man, I knew I should have charged admission to watch these videos. LOL Thanks for the kind words. I'll be doing one on how I thread and chamber a barrel someday when I get some free time.:D

    Where can i get the tools to true a savage(Stevens actually) action? Cant find anything searching for "savage action blueprint tools" or do you just make them yourself?

    I use GTR's action blueprinting mandrel and several parts that I made myself. I've invested a couple thousand dollars into my action blueprinting tooling. If your only planning on doing one or a few actions it's cheaper to have me do it since I have all the tooling already.

    The more I look into it it seems like most gunsmiths simply make their own tools instead of buying them.

    Last time I watched a Kevin Cram how-to video, I quick sent my bolt in to get a sako style extractor installed. Very nice...

    Next thing I knew I was purchasing MCR's bullet Meplat uniforming/trimming tools and equipment. Again very nice tool!

    Now I'm hesitant to watch them. Each time I do I'm tempted to start shipping guns and gear, and spending more money... :D

    Very high quality work being illustrated here, in my opinion.
