    Anybody use these?
    Do they re-shape out-of-round skirts?
    Thanks...

    Yes... but I would be more comfortable buying from a known air rifle engineer rather than an unknown company. If you know that they are accurately made then they might be ok.

    I used a TR Robb sizer for several years and found it greatly reduced random flyers.

    Not sure what 'safe place' I put it in when I packed in FT, so I may have to buy myself another, at which point I will of course find the original.

    How do they guarantee the size ?
    To machine to +/- .003mm takes some doing. Even measuring will be rather difficult.

    I know Robs is tapered.

    The Phil Hassel one I had was spark eroded - now that is an accurate process, really close tolerances:) I believe you can get + or - 4 microns!

    That's the level of accuracy required. You would need a temp controlled gauge room to measure it though.

    Phil did some good stuff. Pity he was so hard to deal with.

    I have a welham adjustable one, used to use it all the time when prems were the pellet of choice fot ft. Very well made, its a slow taper with an adjustable depth stop. Dont bother sizing jsbs, just put a bit more time into batch testing and then buy a case, you can usually spot the batches with more damages.
