    their are 2 people that showed some intrest and 2 more that said they may be intrested. so I have made a total of 6 compleated parts, I started 10 but sometimes things go wrong. OOps
    anyway I have today off again and I guess it is up to me to decide the finish, so I am going to blue them today!!
    again I have 6 all ready so if you would like one feel free to let me know. PM me or if you can not PM yet just post your intrest here and I will PM you.

    another quick note. I made thies from 4140 material

    Picked up? I guess that means you did take that side trip through Acton on the way back down. Sounds like you had a great trip. Glad to have you back buddy.

    It was a pleasure to see both you gentlemen.

    Bradd showed me how he turns the od first (he's got all the piston numbers on the top of his head) then on the break, the sequence of boring and the finish work. It's a blessing to be able to pick up pointers from one of the masters.

    And here is the program I mentioned for getting metric threads out of an old inch lathe. http://www.gunco.net/forums/f185/met...s-lathe-34797/
