Just a MUST SEE..

Unread postAuthor: Brian the brain » Fri Oct 21, 2011 10:15 am

This is a must-see episode of the Discovery show " How it's made"

It gives you some tips on how to form a stock but more importantly..a trick to make metal parts fit exactly!

I'll certainly be using some of the neat tricks in my current build I tell ya!

Plus it's a pleasure for the eyes..

Can't see the video from here but do you mean bedding the stock?

Nope.
No epoxy.

It's a very traditional method of fitting.... :D

I found it very inspiring.
Good to see such craftsmanship these days.

I'll continue my build tonight with this vid in mind...hoping some of it will rub off on me.. :D


I couldn't help fantasising about how cool it would be if you would see this in a movie...and right afterwards see the hero put a hacksaw to it and drop some bad guys.. :D
Muhahaha..

Never fails... 'How it's Made' always nullifies my youtube ADD and forces me to sit still for 10 minutes.
This really was a must-watch if you're interested in making a nice stock at some point. I've tried a similar technique with other insignificant projects but never thought about using it for gunmaking.
put a hacksaw to it

No, that's way too nice. Far more blasphemy points could be had for using an angle grinder or better yet a cutting torch :)

Also I did an image search for collectible rifles and this came up. I know JSR must have seen it at some point... there are a ton of them out there

That marking technique is a well known gunsmithing trick, that was a fascinating video. I know how shotguns are made, but it's good to see it happening.

:shock:

YOU UNDERSTAND!! :wink:
A big angle grinder and then not even cut it straight.. :D

Although you missed the option of " sculpting" the short design by smacking it repeatedly with a blunt axe...

Whahahaa!!

FEAR MY TORCHED-OFF!!
