    First picture of the second hint show one of the posts in the accessory rail of a steyr (?) , but the hamster is still there .. second pic shows a shelf ?

    Maybe a way to "bench position" the rifle to zero a scope or test for POI shift ?

    You're going to mount your Steyr by the front door as a shoe scraper?
    Finally a good use for one, bravo! ;)

    It’s a jig for holding my chassis true whilst I molest it with a router to enlarge the barrel through hole .
    All I need now is for someone to lend me thier chassis to practise on befor my own . Lol

    Faster the better . Lol
    I’m aware it runs to quickly for milling , I’ve got a plan for that to .
    I’m sure there’s a plug some were at my moms place that has a dial to slow things down.
    I’ve machined ally before with my router , just needs to be small bits at a time.

    Personally I'd really not go near it with the router. I've milled plenty of Ali with mine but if it catches an edge itl be game over. Trust me,I've had a cutter explode on me.

    Going with basic tools,I'd make a tapered sanding drum and do it with a drill myself.

    Uhuh, I can forsee a slightly larger hole than you anticipated. Why don't you use a decent vice or even better give it to someone with the right tools? ;)

    Adjustable reamer? Should give a nice round hole without wandering.

    You lot are far too sensible !!
    I like the sanding idea , should be able to get a nice polished finish with the right grit.
    My plan is to put a little platform on the top of the 2 4x2’s , which I will centre off the barrel before removing.
    Thanks for your concerns , I might get a miller one day to add to my swarf pile .

    Didn’t realise that there was a cut out between the barrel and the cylinder , until I removed the barrel .
    This means my bearing will not follow the large hole as planned , so need a B plan.
