It works.

I did one a few years ago and it was easy.

My experience with him is that he is an asshole. I wouldn't bring a cap-gun to him for work. YMMV

An AR15 might fit but the 10 will not. Anyways... when I got it (eons ago) I was not thinking about gunsmithing.

On many lathes you can pass the stock through the spindle.

Not every piece needs to 100% between the centers.

Yup. The problem is that the spindle's inner diameter is not very big. These mini-lathes are meant for small jobs where they can do wonders. But they quickly show their limitation if the stock gets a bit bigger.

They do seem to be in the 3/4" range, on the 7x10 lathes anyway.
I see claims that some can be reamed to 13/16 though.

That's correct. Here's the linky: www.lathemaster.com/LATHEMASTER8x14Lathe.htm

I just noticed they now can also do metric. Need to check the accessories for that.

The guy running that business is great and really stands behind the products. I once had a problem with the main power switch and he send me a complete new set, no questions asked.

I wish I had a lathe, those things look awesome.


What does SNS mean?

I got ahold of them at cascade $30 to machine the barrel down and thread and index the flash suppresor. Awesome deal if you ask me.



GRASSY ASS for all the help everyone
Link Posted: 3/2/2006 1:17:17 PM EDT
Dangit! at that price there's no kickback for me
Link Posted: 3/2/2006 3:49:54 PM EDT
I found out the barrel twist was 1/11ish. So I'm only going to be able to shoot light stuff. The price of the barrel was right on. FREE so I don't feel to bad cutting it down from 24".

Thats a great deal, when I talked to a local funsmith and he wanted $100.00 to do the same job, so I bought a lathe.
Link Posted: 3/2/2006 7:50:27 PM EDT
When I dropped it off it was around 3pm. He said it would probably be done on saturday. Well he called me 2 1/2hrs later to say he was done. That included machining the barrel, threading the barrel, indexing the flash suppresor, re crowning the barrel. All that for $30 Priceless For everything else theres Master card Sorry I couldn't resist corny I know.



So with a barrel with that kind of twist what kind of ammo can I shoot (grain) and how far out will it be acurate.(range)????
Link Posted: 3/3/2006 9:20:56 PM EDT
Well I picked up the barrel today and all I can say is WOW really nice work. Nice new crown, threads are nicely cut , and the FS was indexed spot on. A heck of a lot of minor custom work for very little cash, and in my own back yard so to speak.

I'm going to refinish the hoke AR again with my moly resin this weekend.

I have the stock forward handguard and a free floating hand guard. I can't decide which one to put back on. Any advice to sway me one way or another.
Link Posted: 3/3/2006 10:22:20 PM EDT
Did you give him the whole upper or just the barrel?
Link Posted: 3/3/2006 11:33:18 PM EDT
I just gave him the stripped down barrel.
