Does this mean Tim is doing winter league now? !
Lol I bet you were not expecting that so fast ;-)
Very nicely done Phil.
Ta Ian .
Here's Tim's story .......seems to be becoming the pattern .
Oh oh . Cleaned up the slot not long ago , but now the glitter is back
The wear is usually on top edge of the slot
strangely sideways man , given these instructions ..........
" turn the handle from - 5.75 to + 5.75 . Oh and if you muck up , your action's knackered ... so no pressure ............."
A good old love up in the ultrasonic jingle machine ( Thanks Monty . I love you ).
Hardened steel insert fitted , and a new std pin ......we're good to go ..........
A point worth mentioning regarding the new pins.
I fitted one a while ago and it was very stiff to go into the hole in the hammer.
So much so that it had me worried about shavings getting into the workings of the gun .
The factory stake / indent part of the pin to raise the surface enabling a tight fit in the hammer, but the new pins i've had have been quite severely enlarged
Latest method is to size the pin first by fitting it in the hammer out of the gun.
then pop it back out of the hammer , put the hammer in the gun and tap the pin home .
heres a new pin waiting to be pushed in
Yeh, my last one was very tight...
Just buy a Steyr guys
The only good bit of them is the reg
The anti flip works well too Rob
I've run out of pics rob
then ill show some shaved nastiness
Is that a Bridgeport?
Yes ian good spot
A bit old fashioned these days ,
But so am I
Ok got some more pixels .
here's some nasty burrs from a new pin ........this pin will now be removed , cleaned / deburred, the hammer fitted to the action and the pin re installed .
Oh don't get excited . This is a 10m hammer but for pin fitting purposes it's the same as domi
Cracking bit of kit though.
I've got a Myford VMC not quite as good but serves my needs very well for now.
Shocking burrs by the way
My goodness that block has seen a lot of use
Your ears a very dirty Phil!
'Tools of the trade' Connie .
You'd be surprised how many of those i get get through in me shed .
It's the old ,worn pin wears the slot, which wears the pin a bit more viscious circle .
check your pins they are soft .
the slot wear is always on the upper surface
