Near as I can tell its pretty much reading the chicken bones and then applying the proper chant while you pray to the gods of the machine tool.

Re: "No Machining Required" Form 1 Build?

A FP can doesn't require a drill press , but one would be nice . I think about all of them offer centering tools that are useable to center the holes in the freeze plugs ( baffles ) with a 1/8 bit and then you progressively expand them from there . Which can be done fine with a hand drill and set of...

Re: Solvent traps/adapters crackdown

Not buying into the meme . Unless and until a receipt for seized property is shown , or a press release from batfe on how they are protecting us from the menace of legal gun cleaning items it simply is more internet bs .

Re: Heat treating freeze plugs

You can't heat treat freeze plugs . There is simply not enough carbon in them for that to work . About all you can do is burn the zink coating off and give yourself a fine headache if you get in the fumes .

Re: Questions from an inexperienced Form 1 builder.

Something to consider .. the SDTA muzzle brake/endcap combo has no retention device to keep the can tight . IIRC he does sell endcaps for yankee hill and possibly another manufacturer that have retention schemes built in to keep the can tight on the rifle .

Re: Apparently DORMAN has changed their 555-104 freeze plugs

Out of curiosity .... Just what did dorman change ? Is it the id or the od on them ( i am assuming its the id since the widget wont work but i was wondering if the " new " plugs are too large or too small for the centering tool to work ) I wouldn't be using this method personally , but for the guys ...

Re: WTF has gone wrong with my can?

Ill vote with Bendersquint as a most likely issue , crud on the shoulderof the barrel or suppressor mount . The other thing that comes to mind ( and it could be wrong as i have no experience with that can ) would be basically the same issue with the can endcap(s) allowing the baffle to shift a bit p...

And no, the wife does not know that I am turning the garage into a man-cave.

Re: Under NFA rules, is a garage considered a "silencer"?

The garage is not attached to the firearm , thus would not be a silencer ( yet anyway lol ).

Edited to add ..

For Gawds sake don"t write any letters asking BATFE though
