    AANNNNNND - I'm out. As in outbid on that Garand. I'm just surprised it took this long. So back to plan A, a stop in Anniston at the CMP store on my way up to the shoot.

    I'm going to monitor, it'll be interesting to see what the hammer price is.

    You'd have just gotten an M-1 thumb anyway.
    I got a "Broomhandle thumb" a while back in a similar manner!

    I even managed to get a M-14 thumb by forgetting under stress and operated it like a M-1 with the Gunny
    watching and staring in disbelief .

    All he said was I see you have drilled with an M-1.

    Finally some shop time. Working on the chassis. (Circled in pink) Used scrap material, hence the holes and the big chunk that's missing. Just trying to get a process down. Kinda sucks, cause I may have been able to pull it off on the first try. Oh well 
    You forgot something on that watermark.

    Set up camp at Reelfoot lake. Yes it's raining so I'm stuck inside the camper typing this post.

    No bullets depicted from where the barrel will be?

    Done for the evening.  Been on the concrete all day, hell managed to walk 4.5 miles in the shop just farting around. Back hurts, and I smell something awful. Time for to wash my junk and hit the hay.

    Can't work on my brass receiver tomorrow, so I'll work on that pistol caliber rifle. I need to thread the barrel, but not at the muzzle, and not at the breech; more at midpoint of barrel. It's complicated. Anyway, all I have to do is finish it up and spin the barrel back on tight to the receiver and headspace.; this is a rework project. Need to also drill and tap front ring for scope base, unless I decide something else.

    Is that to scale?

    It seems to be coming along very well or are you just pleased to see me?

    When I was doing my latest project on the house, my late Father's Milwaukee drill blew a TRIAC and would only run in single speed mode. After opening it up and finding that the TRIAC was in a potted assembly of some kind, so it wasn't immediately obvious how to deal with it, I sent it off to Milwaukee under their $99 repair program.

    Long story short, for my $99 they sent me a MUCH nicer, brand new drill. I ain't complaining, although I'm sad to see "Hecho en China" on the label...

    I have more drill motors than anybody ever needed, all but one of them belonged to someone who is now dead!

    I'm not a Milwaukee fan boy since they've turned to hecho in China. Still decent tools, but ain't all that and a bowl of grits. 
    Guy at work is, was making fun of my Makita cause it was an Asian import. He about crapped when I showed him some facts. Anyway, funny you say this. I posted an ild
    Milwaukee hole shooter on Craigslist a day ago. Dudes picking it up tomorrow. It's a made in USA model.

    Yesterday was Star Wars Day (May the Fourth be with you). Today is not only Sinko de Mayo, but also Star Wars Revenge of the Fifth Day.

    In other news, I got buttonholed this morning to 'help' with more farm equipment. If you've never broken a tractor in half between two BIG overhead hoists for a clutch, pressure plate, and associated parts replacement, then I can tell you with some assurance that you've never lived on the wild side! Getting it broken in half to get to the clutch is the easy part; it's getting the two halves back together that is the FUN part! The company was excellent, and conversation lively, so it was a good day. Having some extra long bolts to keep everything aligned for assembly was a BIG plus, too. And it worked after reassembly and with NO parts left over!

    Its pretty disgusting when an iconic brand like Milwaukee is Hecho en China. What I really wanted was my Dad's drill fixed, and it was entirely repairable, they just didn't want to do it. I probably should have tried harder I guess...

    That WAS a brand new double ended 1/8" end mill. Cork soaking mortar forker.

    Those 1/8" mills don't take sideloading with anything but a snail's pace feed well at all. And depth of cut is something to which they are overly sensitive. Hogging passes are straight out unless you have a machine doing 10 zillion rpm with a flood coolant feed. Using a 1/16 mill, even in plastic, will make you sweat bullets.

    That also looks like aluminum plate. Aluminum tends to bunch up behind the mill and the cutter catches it and runs it through the area being cut. This binds the cutter and breaks it, too, even with slow feed. Time to get the shop messy and get that air compressor running with a blow gun nozzle on the end of the hose to get those chips out of the way before they cause grief.

    I learned that stuff the HARD way, too.

    I had the air blowing. 
    Broke one. Ok, too fast. 
    Try again. 
    Ok, that's cool, seems fine, let's give it a little more SNAP!

    Just busted the exact same end mill Friday. 3/8 collet size, 1/8 cutter.
