For those of you, like me, who liberally smear on Locktite when installing screws, remember the old Brill Cream ad from the '60s...." little dab will do ya" when dealing with Rocksett. So I was swappin' out muzzle brakes on a Savage 10PC, the Rocksett held so tight, I actually turned the fucking barrel out of the action. :evil: Ultimately, I ended up soaking the brake end of the barrel in water for 12 hours AND with the help of a friend reefing down on the barrel nut wrench, I finally broke the damn thing loose. Lean from my mistake! :mrgreen:

Don't forget to check your headspace. I try to use a good barrel vise when I can to prevent that sort of thing. Brownells sells a great one that uses aluminum shims to change the profile to match the barrel. Super strong and holds tight.

I have one similar to one of these in my shop, and it does not only come in handy for taking MB or FH of the gun.
great for brazing as well.

What is that you have a picture of? A link would be appreciated. The Savage is re-head space and back to the way it was except for the new Silencerco ASR muzzle brake. Not to mention there was a glass full of Famous Grouse to help me erase the memory of that ordeal! :mrgreen:

Tnx, I really like it. Good to control, no open flame, quick.
Works well on Locktite - Rockset - heat resistant glues etc etc.

Yeah, I don't have one for my home shop.

i can see it as a valuable tool for a busy shop but a tinkerer like me is still getting by on MAPP gas.

I have an old microwave I may turn into an induction heater one day but that's a little more bulky than the mini-ductor and space in the garage is still a premium market.

I would love to have a induction heater for heat treatment.It would need a few controls so I could dial in the right setting every time.The ability to change heat setting on the fly would make the process almost simple compared to molten salt's and the need for several ovens.I could see the small unit used for the treatment of baffles and end caps plus custom tools without the need to fire up the gas torch or heat up the oven.Life is good when tools like this become available and affordable.

I saw a video once where Walther Germany uses IH for heat treatment of partial spots / locations in gun parts.
also used for Shotgun barrels
