An in process video of boring out the I.D. for the piece of tubing that makes up the wrench body.
We usually get a few inquiries a week about when we are going to start making wrenches for the SR25 series of URX rails. Well we're happy to announce that we've been spending the last few weeks selecting materials and finalizing our design. We started cutting the test parts today and hope to have the finished product up on the site within the next couple weeks.
These may look a little bigger than your average 80% AR15 forgings. That's because I picked up a few AR10 forgings for a future project. I've always wanted to go aerial hog hunting so these may turn into the gun I use!
I get asked this question a lot: Which is better NiB or QPQ?
The truth is it depends. They are both an incredibly durable finish when applied correctly (we use a licensed 3M nickel boron and QPQ by H&M Metal Processing, which are both the top names in the industry).
The area where NiB tends to shine is it's ease of cleaning and the QPQ excels in that it makes the material incredibly durable.
Here's a new bolt that's fresh off the machine. You can see it's sporting one of our billet QPQ extractors and a new design ejector.
We like to periodically function check out bolts, check the headspace, and look for ways to improve out machining methodology on a monthly basis to make sure we're producing the best product out there.
On a monthly basis our programmer takes a look at the G-coding for making our parts and tries to make the program more efficient, whether it be reducing cycle time, trying new tooling combinations, or finding was to mitigate deburring by hand.
Here's a DPMS pattern AR10 bolt that just came off the machine.
d.wilson mfg works on interesting projects from time to time, so this is the place we'll share some of them.
