Gun Building / Re: Could use some help with a drilling mishap
« Last post by Afghanvet on Today at 07:57:04 AM »
Iíve used this small hobby iron on quite a few Krags, 03ís fand m1 garand stocks.  I soak the $#@* out of the area, lay a wet rag over the dent and press the iron on the rag.  You can normally raise it quite a bit.  I did the same thing on my lock panel drilling the rear bolt.  It wonít steam out.

I have seen a small number of TN rifles built with copper ram rod pipes on them.

What degree of finish does Tom require of a lock to be case hardened? I would like to have the lock for my wife's rile case hardened and have heard great things about Tom's work.
Those rifles you all shared with us look great!
Gun Building / Re: When to draw file

I haven't had to draw file a barrel in years until just recently. That was the barrel that was part of Jim Kiblers Colonial Rifle. On the rest i just used 320 grit sandpaper on them. Dozens of barrels,Rice, Colerain, Green Mountain, and Douglas. 320 paper cleaned them up real good. Finished them all with Laurel Mountain Forge Browning solution.

That is one sweet gun.  How about some specs, caliber, barrel, lock, triggers, etc.  I am particularly interested in your trigger guard.

I guess I should have taken into account how many folks have a steam iron at home......  LOL

It is, after all a really old way of "standing up" dents. 

I should have said "don't do the entire side as Davemuzz said.  My bad.......
