    When you have drill rod, you have a .166 diameter transfer punch.

    Had a nice trip to the range today. My wife went to one of those skin care parties at my sister's place. So my son and I went out for a burger and a trip to the range. Partly sunny, 76 degrees. He shot my M&P 9 and 686 Plus. I shot the Sig P220.

    He rarely shoots, so each time is almost like starting over for him. Still he did very well for someone who only shoots once a year or so. I have been dry firing my Sig every night, and I shot it better than I ever have.

    My son and I have sorta of a "Cat's in the Cradle" scenario in our lives. Time shared doing anything together is pretty rare. We meet up for a lunch or dinner from time to time, but the last time we shared an activity together was over a year ago. 

    So it was a special kinda day for me.

    Got a LOT done today. Got a small amount of machine work to do, then a fair amount of hand finishing.

    Face***k was hammering my website hard yesterday. As I reject all links from there, I only get the occasional hit, but I guess someone tried to post a link in a popular area of that site.

    Looking good! Not much more metal work left.

    Some dumbass forgot to order a 1/4-28 die last year. So, that dumbass got to single point these threads on the lathe.  He actually made about three times this many threads, but cut and filed to get the number/length of threads he need. Now, he has to drill an 1/8 cross hole in that 1/4" rod. But, hes chicken. Because he knows if he **** up, he gets to make the whole thing again.

    I have an almost foolproof method for doing that cross hole drilling. Indicate the piece in the mill vise and use a small end mill, in this case a 3/16" would be ideal, and make a small flat spot on the work piece. Then use 3/16" center drill to spot hole, then change collet for cross hole drill size.

    That's how I'd do it, and do it that way. Saves on cuss words and do overs. Just make sure you mark where the hole will be when the stub is screwed into the action before drilling! :)

    Gonna be a cork soaker to get it EXACTLY where it needs to be. And it has to be nearly perfect. It won't tolerate being rotated off kilter. Reckon it's gonna get drilled while it's in the action. I've got nice flat surfaces to squeeze on to. 
    Milling a flat is a great idea, but can't happen. The .250 rod is already JUST bigger than the trigger assembly. Like a file stroke or two to big. In reality I should have started with 5/16 or bigger rod, so that I could mill flats that were actual flats, what for making better contact with the trigger bits. I'm not overly impressed with my solution, and as such is subject to review, rejection, and re-do. 

    As far as spot drilling goes, that's what spot drills are for. Grown rather fond of them. Purpose built, short stiff drills. Much bueno. Much better than center drills. Which....are for making centers what for lathe turning. They ain't the best for spotting/starting holes, least not as good as the drill that's designed for that purpose.

    If ya have a n edge finder, mount your bolt between to parallels in your vice, find your edge off one of your parallel edges, find your center and go with a center drill (preferably one that fits a collet). Start a hole then peck drill it.

    Been thinking about selling my Howa 1500  7mm Rem Mag to fund a Grendel build. I'm not one that ever sells anything but I only use the 7 mag deer hunting. Figure the Grendel would be good for hunting and at the range. What you folks think of the idea.

    Well, got thay cross hole drilled. In the wrong **** spot. I KNEW it was .200 to the center off the bottom of the action. KNEW IT. 
    Except it wasn't. It was supposed to be .100. 
    Bed time.

    Part on left should look like prototype part on right in regards to hole location.

    Wheee the pencil is pointing should be against the bottom of the action.

    Probably not back when they were made, they just were not up to the abuse kids do
    to their toys and did not last.

    A lot lot parents did not have  the desire or time to keep fixing such things.

    Yea, I took my granddaughter out in mine last weekend, which is what made me get off my duff and put the "lift kit" onto it. I was an absolute fanatic about taking care of that wagon when I was a kid - I had lost a previous metal pan wagon to rust, and had promised my parents I'd take care of it. Which is why it didn't rot away and is still here.

    Most of the ones I see on the 'net now have the long, single piece side panels which Sears had switched to a couple or three years after I got mine. "Most"? Heck, more like *ALL*. I guess the double panel wagons have all rotted away...

    Still ain't a lost cause. Get that 1/4"-28 die you don't have and thread that sucker so it will fit where it needs to be. Permanent Lock Tite is your best buddy for exact part placement. Or..................you can make another one.
    Another suggestion, FWIW. That stub for holding the trigger could be made from aluminum or brass stock. Not like it's a high stress part.

    Sometimes you've got "it", sometimes you don't. Its been at least 2 years, maybe 3, since I performed a double veil routine, and that particular one did NOT go well. I have been informed by my dance sisters here that I'm doing double veil at the spring showcase. So I got them out and practiced today, and will try to practice every day between now and the performance. I did great today. That kind of scares me - but I'm sure I'll screw it up enough times between now and performance day to make me happy. I'm a bit nauseated - double veil dancing involves a LOT of spinning...

    That part ain't worth messing with. Nothing to grab hold of. Drill rod is cheap.  I bought a die today. Spendy little sucker at $16. But it's HSS and made in America.  Most import taps and dies ain't worth a DAMN. No more than I'll use it, it will probably last forever. 
    New plan also. Take a piece of 3/8 rod, turn the tip down to 1/4" then thread the tip. (Just the tip) Install snugly. Then mill the sides down so I have a 1/4 wide by 3/8 long stud. That gives me flat surfaces for the trigger to ride on, and a shoulder to tighten against. There's WAY too much wiggle the way I had it before.

    Picked up a WELL used compressor today. It's been acting sketchy. Likely a bad pressure switch. But, it's 8 years old. And has been run HARD. Like  some days just Minutes between cycles, if not just running solid for days. Anyway, since we don't fix things only replace them.....someone's got a "new" 2 hp 26 gallon made in the USA compressor.  
    And "only " 2 HP, that's 2 actual HP. Not like the ones at Walmart claiming 5 HP. Maybe they would make 5 HP, ILSI. (If Lightning Strikes It)
