    A customer of mine asked if I would take some photos of how I installed his bolt knob. Since I was this far I figured I'd share with everyone my set up for installing bolt knobs on Remington bolt handles.

    This is the fixture I built to hold and align the bolt handle. I then turn the knob down to size.

    Then I set up and single point thread.

    And this is the custom knob I built for him. A little longer than normal but it's what he wanted.

    Is that a self closing bolt? Looks like you could just push the bolt in and it would close all by it self. What does that knob weigh?
    All kidding aside I LIKE IT.

    Dam you Kevin why do you do this stuff to me when you have my rifle sitting in your shop? Now I will spend the whole week thinking about this. Outstanding work!

    Good engenuity, lightbulb I always wondered how that was done. Thanks for showing us how the experts do it.
