Re: 1911 Project

Very impressive work Glenn! Not many could do that level of delicate precision (including me without saying :roll: ). I also admire your "stick-to-it-ive" work habits (if there was ever such a word). Many years ago I started a big project (to big for me at the time) and never finished it, I vowed ne...

That's crazy Pete!

My question is what would be the reason they need to trepan a hole that large and deep in the first place? Also, could they not buy something cored from the mill to a close enough size already, then just bore to fished size?

Re: loose screw issue

Thanks Patio!

I like that idea a lot....I could possible make some mods to incorporate that. I have been thinking that in order to move forward I may just have to abandon my inventory and start fresh, this could be an idea worth investigating.

A mini disc brake. Bill Would be a cool idea bu...
