After a long evening of wire wheeling, welding, and clear coating, the table is finally done. It only took over a year, hogged up most of my kitchen, and cost more than my truck, but it's finally done.
It's a long and tedious process, but shotgun barrels of the proper wall thickness can be cut for removable choke tubes.
For those of you that own rifles with the URX series of rails know what a pain it is to either send you upper into a smith to have it worked on or fork out the dough for a wrench to do it yourself. Within the next few weeks, we'll have something available at a reasonable price to change that.
It's been a while since I've had some time to work on my kitchen table project that is pushing going on a year now. The other day I finally when to the local woodcrafter's and picked up some polymerized linseed oil to finish the wood trim part of the table. It was pretty hard to photograph in my kitchen, but you can see that grain of the black walnut looks really nice. That gave me a good pump up to get working on this again and get it finished here in the next few weeks.
Here's a partially finished AR10 bolt blank that was a demo to test out a new program for the machine.
I brought the wood bits of my grate table home from the shop today. A few coats of finish and that black walnut should really look nice.
The sample came back from the heat treat after getting hardened to 35-40 RC, then got coated in black oxide.
After test fitting the wrench on a barrel nut, it was confirmed that there wasn't any measurable shift in dimensions from the heat treated. Now it's time to fire up the mill and start cranking these puppies out.
