Gun Building / Re: Lock mortise question
« Last post by Wingshot on Today at 09:43:52 PM »
Ok, that makes sense. My concern was fearing the possibility that I may somehow alter the plate if I inletted as is and end up with a less than desirable inletting job. The lock is a Chambers Late Ketland and as is has a bevel facing inward, I scribed that line as seen in the pic. Should I just maintain that or existing bevel?

"who wants to see my first build with all of its mistakes and simpleness?"

Someone that is about to start their first build.

Yep, when the mistakes are shown during the course of producing a lesson/video and solutions provided, it goes a long way to instilling confidence. Iíve watched Billís Tennessee rifle build series more times than I can count, so much so that I have created an episode catalog that helps steer me to specific areas of the build. He made errors along the way and clearly explained the how and why as well as guiding the viewer as to how to correct it.

Iíve made many mistakes along the way and Iíve not even got to shaping the stock yet but because Iíve gone slowly and methodically (so far) Iíve managed to overcome and fix those problem areas. Iíve even started a ďdonít do thisĒ list. Lol.

At the least Iíd file a slight draft all around the plate and get the edges to be inlet nice and clean. 4 degrees is what Long John recommends, just to give you an idea.

I have used this on various leather items including a pistol holster, I like it and it doesn't stay greasy after application and then wiping it off.

Work in (very slow) progress. I get may 0.5mm per session, but I *really* don't want to screw this one up.
