Title says it. How many uses a boring bar or a reamer. A Leaphart
Manual mill, indexable boring head here.
Made a fixture for the lathe, use a boring bar.
Don't own a mill or a lathe. Buy new lug that fits your application.
I guess im lucky- probably well over 1000 remingtons and i have never needed a bigger hole in a lug. Not sure whats going on but i can tell its not right
Savage large shank lug. Already bigger
Looks good. What action is that lug for and what type of boring bars are you using.
If you square up threads on a Remington action I was thinking the lug need to be opened up a little.
You guys using taper lugs or parallel side lugs?
Not worth the trouble. Buy a lug with the right sized hole in it.--Jerry
I have read a lot about going back into a Remington an oversized the threads are they not useable the way they come I don't think I have ever read about redoing the threads on a Winchester, Ruger, savage , mausers or any other commercial actions I guess they must be better quality threads just asking.
If your not set up to do it , either on lathe or mill , sell it and buy another .
Unless of course you plan on opening a few , the set up for accurate lathe work is like the one pictured by gene Poole . Not a easy or quick tool to make .
Yea, I Understand.
I have 3 lathes and 2 milling machine in the shop. A Leaphart
Well understated. I find 99/100 remington's don't need the threads reworked.
Got yea. I guess the main reason for rethreading would be our of round.
A good point.
Main reason for rethreading would be out of alignment. The threads hold the barrel against the face of the action. Unless they are at a skew angle, or badly off center, they don't need to be changed. 9/10 machinists make threads too tight. Barrel threads should be relatively loose so the barrel can settle against the action.
I do run a 1 1/16-16 tap into them to clean out any burrs.
Just asking for a friend??
