I knew you'd comment on that pic... and yeah that FN looks suspicious.. I guess they get a lot of cool stuff in lots of small crates (yeah I know that they say that
it was taken from forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi at Misrata's western front line
)

not to start a political debate but long live Muammar Gaddafi!! :wink:

That would be a new casing being turned up for an RPG. Recycling at it's finest! :wink:

Agreed, the FN is a very odd sight among everything else there :?

That fn2000 looks awesome. But I agree, it is an out of place weapon.

Another video I fully watched ! :)
Starting to look very nice (as always with machined stuff)
I think you can polish it even more, a mirror effect would be nice :D

okay okay... I admit the body was not polished to perfection... yet!
(the eraser is there only for a nice color touch)

I used those pads, a few seconds for each on the lathe in sequence, while the body was rotating.

And the next question would be: Where? Where??

I haven't watched the video, but I'm wondering what your rationale is behind supporting the work with a tap rather than with a bolt or piece of threaded rod? I personally wouldn't load up a small hardened tap like that, but I guess whatever works

Well, the first cutting plan did use a threaded rod... but I didn't have any at hand with this particular thread. I could have cut one.. but needed to describe it on the video. So... well... laziness win!

A threaded brass rod would have been less hard than the tap though, and also not as well centered I guess. Also note that the cut was very light as I already turned to almost size all the pieces. The cut was less than 0.5mm (0.02")

Well, that's all the bad reasons I could think about :D
