Re: Any HAM radio guys out there?

G'Day Fella's,

Mk23, very nice and well done!

But, if it gets within 50ish meters of me, it will experience a 1 1/4oz Technical Failure!
Probably #2's or BB's!!!

Merry Christmas

Re: Looking For METRIC Die Chart

G'Day Fella's,

Gen_K, as has already been stated and also, the M in M26 is for "Metric" and 1.5 is the Pitch in this case 1.5mm!
I would usually machine the major diameter to, in this case 25.95 or 25.90mm prior to cutting the thread!!!

Hope that helps

Re: Mig or Tig ???

I have been designing and making "Cans" for some time now (in Australia), and my .22 Rimfire and all my Centrefire Cans are Tig welded together!!! I'll try to post an ...

Re: Chiped tap on 316 ss

G'Day Fella's,

Vaeevictiss, what cutting oil/fluid are you using?
In my experience, you can get most threads cut OK (in any metal), as long as you use a good cutting Oil/Fluid and take it slow and steady!

Hope that helps

Re: Could This Product Be Useful for Cans?

G'Day Fella's,

Historian, Never Wet certainly looks to be a very useful product!
I wonder how well it copes with the heat of a firearm?
If it has a high temperature rating, it would be a great way to stop firearms, reloading dies, etc etc etc from Rusting!!!

Thanks for the heads up!

Re: Rem700 MRL in .338 Lapua Mag

G'Day Hatchet Joe,

Thanks for that advice!

What I am trying to find out is if the M/Brake, is threaded on?
I can see a joint just back from the actual muzzle, on the Barrel/Brake junction.
I want to develop a "Can" for this cartridge and well do I need to say any more!

Rem700 MRL in .338 Lapua Mag

G'Day Fella's,

I recently purchased to above Remington rifle and was wondering if any body here, has removed the factory muzzle brake from it?
If so, did the muzzle thread have Loctite applied to it?
