Re: Vernier sights

There is an exploded diagram for a set of old vernier Parker Hale sights to be found at www.normanclarkgunsmith.com . Look under Parker Hale, M84 MK11 target rifle. If you dig around in the site there is also a list of parts including some of the sizes. Hope this helps. The link doesn't work for me...

Re: Power hacksaw, worth keeping

I wouldn't trade my old Racine power hacksaw for anything. The only bandsaws that I have seen that are any good are big, heavy and expencive industrial type machines. Not realy practical for the home shop metal worker.

Re: Holding a Square piece in a 3 jaw chuck

A piece of round or hex stock bored to fit over the corners of the square stock to be turned. Cut it through one side with a hacksaw and you have a collet that will hold your square stock in a three jaw chuck.

Yup, Forney still sells them.

Did you know that they are good for welding Aluminum? Just use aluminum arc welding electrodes as filler rod.
