Re: 9mm Suppressor (no tools)

I suppose with no tools at all, you could build an "Irish" silencer, sometimes called a "Russet" silencer, but its really hard to engrave the serial number... Alordnappa, thank you for your insightful chuckle on this gloomy day. Quoting from old 1940's joke: "If Mississippi wore Missouri's New Jers...

Re: Looking for a offset 9mm silencer

Having finally read your query carefully ( Careful reading anathema to guys :) ) may I point you to a good design that you could emulate is a version of the effective 1948 Russian Stetchkin offset " APB SUPPRESSED MACHINE PISTOL Silencer ".

Re: Will you show me yours if I show you mine?

YugoRPK,

Thank you for the great shots of your work,
especially the monocore picture.

Your statement " ...My 20th century machine work wasnt half bad."
made me chuckle thinking "Half-bad!! I should be so 'bad'".

Have you posted a YouTube of piece being shot?


Best.

Re: Accurate Drilling Center Holes In Baffles

Ecco, great work!!

Just got back from hinterland and
enjoyed your update.

It is visual eye candy.

Your explanation is correct on Spiders.
They are also set up in front of lathe
for odd shaped barrel drilling.


Best.

And a Happy 'MOTHER's' Day to nasty DemoNrats :) :)

Accurate Drilling Center Holes In Baffles

I was recently asked what were some of the techniques that have been used to accurately drill out center holes in thin metal disks. I humorously said "Spider, man!". I recalled seeing in 1955 a machinist's technique used by the Institute's 'gumpy-Gaelic' shop foreman ... a lathe chuck Spider . I loc...

If you go the route of building your own can seriously consider purchasing " Geissele* suppressor alignment rods.
