My Next Lathe Project?

Yes, it can be legal to make a silencer. For everything Form-1, from silencer designs that are easily made, to filing forms with the BATF, to 3D modeling. Remember, you must have an approved BATF Form-1 to make a silencer. All NFA laws apply.

My Next Lathe Project?

Post by Historian » Thu Aug 09, 2012 7:28 am

Please refer to << http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ivIHcHwR6b0 >>.

And making monocores is considered to be a challenge.

On second thought I guess I shall need some intensive lathe and
milling lessons from Mr. B and the good Captain. But I have a good
start with a large supply of brass. :)

Some light hearted relief.

If you can build that sir, my hats off to you!!! That feller must`ve been a clock maker, or a sewing machine maker.

I will just stick to firearm related projects. That way when something goes kaboom, I`ll at least have a reason.

Cool either way! 8)

Oh yes! +1.

Thanks for directing me to it. It resonates with a guy's atavistic response
to shinny metal making accompanied with delusions of competence with a lathe.

I heartily agree, clocks are great to see and imagine making but they still do not supplant
simple steel and wood, open spaces, targets, the sound of silence, and the smell of 'cordite'. [ OK. IMR powder :) ]

Watching those that we've elected to office, seems most can't even wash a car or order fast food correctly.
Maybe if we had a few of those inventors solving the worlds problems....things might get done. :roll:

Don't let the EPA know he was running without catalytic converters.
