Re: 9x39 project

I would think that 1.48" of blast chamber is too much. Looks like you are going direct thread, so why not tighten it up a bit. With the Aegis cones, if you'd use a .750" spacer for the BC, and .500" for the rest and fill up the rear with more Ti cones or even aluminum, I think you'd be better off. Y...

Re: Sub $1k lathe including shipping 8x16 with 5” chuck 1.5” pass thru

Sum-bitch. Ask about having your motor if you're swapping them out and my front bearing in my motor started making noise today. I can probably blame it on myself since I tensioned the s--t out of the belt when I had one roll on me a while back. That and I'm sure it is a cheap bearing. Hopefully I'll...

If you're swapping motors, let me know. I'd be interested in having a spare.

I can't answer that because I have only had the opportunity to use two lathes. This one and my HF 7x12.

Re: 30 cal Suppressor Build - Forum 1

When turning on the lathe, everything ends up concentric as long as all of the work is done in one setup.

Re: Creative way to drill pin wrench holes in an endcap???

This would have turned out better if I had used some drill rod in the correct size instead of turning down a piece of metal I had on hand.

Just the holder and a couple bushings.

Re: 30 cal Suppressor Build - Forum 1

Tough to tell what depth your groove is already, but either the threading tool or the neutral tool should fit in there.

Still, there is a lot of stick out from the chuck without tailstock support.

Re: 30 cal Suppressor Build - Forum 1

Flipping the tool would allow you to get it on center without needing to hang the tool post holder off the edge of the compound. I'm not exactly sure what you can do to get past the layer. If it happened to me, I'd slow the lathe down and with a new tool tip, give her hell. Can you get any of your o...

Re: 30 cal Suppressor Build - Forum 1

I didn't think about it until now, but you could have flipped the tool upside down and reversed the lathe.

Sounds like you work hardened the SS with the HSS parting tool. Gonna need to break through that layer of hardness.

Might bring in your tailstock to give it a little more rigidity.

Re: 30 cal Suppressor Build - Forum 1

I had the same issue with my AXA tool post and the parting tool. I already removed some material from the bottom of the holders, but it wasn't enough. I ended up milling some off of the bottom of the tool as well. If you have a 4 jaw chuck, turning down the holder on the lathe is a piece of cake. Yo...

Re: 30 cal Suppressor Build - Forum 1

That tool you have pictured in your hand is what I use. But, I am only cutting smaller pieces like yourself.

Also, it makes the threads look better if you have an angled relief on the back as well as the front.

Re: 30 cal Suppressor Build - Forum 1

If you can't slow the feed rate down any, try larger radii (radiused spelled correctly) tooling. I was accidently sent some WNMG inserts. Seller told me to keep them and shipped the right inserts. Figured what the heck and bought a couple cheap holders. Had to mill the heck out of the holders to sit...

Re: 30 cal Suppressor Build - Forum 1

I can't help but think you are going to have a hard time turning down a cone shape on centers. If that lathe had a larger spindle bore that you could stick the work piece in, you'd be golden!

Regular, non-skirted cones would be the simplest to make.

Re: Turning 17-4 (A)

The insert that I have broke the most has been for my parting tool. That was in the beginning when I didn't know better. I have dulled a few others and broke a couple more when the tool fell off of the bench. But, I do buy the cheapest inserts I can get from China.
