    Re: Totally Lost

    I've had this happen to me and I wasn't using Fusion360, I was using SprutCam. It was driving me nuts cause I couldn't find anything wrong with the G-Code and my SprutCam simulations showed that my...

    Re: HF Sand Blaster.

    At one point in my self-employed past I was black-balled by all the home insurance carriers due to multiple incidents (within the span of one year) of people crashing their cars into my back yard. ...

    Re: HF Sand Blaster.

    Many folks look down their noses at anything that comes from Harbor Freight stores but when you're a budget minded hobbyist like myself laying out large chunks of cash for top quality gear is out of...
  4. Re: Spiral Fluting A 17" Rifle Barrel With 4th Axiz

    Yea; out of curiosity; after my last post I went online in search of some information about titanium. I found basically the same info that you just listed. I do most of my threading of anything...
  5. Re: Spiral Fluting A 17" Rifle Barrel With 4th Axiz

    I knew that milling titanium was possible with a tormach. I just have never done it myself and not having done it, I really have no idea of what the proper speeds and feeds might be or if a special...
  6. Re: Spiral Fluting A 17" Rifle Barrel With 4th Axiz

    Interesting. I've never milled anything harder than the 4150 metal that this barrel project entailed. Have you or anyone else milled titanium on their Tormach 770? It would be interesting to know...
  7. Re: I finally got it reassembled

    The suppressor in the pic is already engraved it's just hard to see. I have dreamed of going the "Form 1" route and making my own suppressor. If I did so I'd most likely just clone the design of...
  8. I finally got it reassembled

    It's taken a while to finish up this project and I'm still not completely finished but, I'm far enough along to where I can confidently see the light at the end of the tunnel; so to speak. I had a...
  9. Re: Spiral Fluting A 17" Rifle Barrel With 4th Axiz

    I was thinking of making those brass inserts like you've mentioned earlier when I was figuring out how I was going to patch up that gash where my end mill veered off course. I was thinking that...
  10. Re: Spiral Fluting A 17" Rifle Barrel With 4th Axiz

    I know it looks that way from the photo but that second-to-the-last flute that my end mill veer of course out of had not yet been cut to full depth before it made that left hand turn. Another thing...
  11. Re: Spiral Fluting A 17" Rifle Barrel With 4th Axiz

    Here are the photos I mentioned earlier. I tried to get a clear close up of the bad cut made by my wondering end mill. The accompanying photo didn't come out as clear as I'd hoped. I chalk that up...
  12. Re: Spiral Fluting A 17" Rifle Barrel With 4th Axiz

    I still have this particular operation saved in my CAM software so after I get the rest of it done I'll be going back and looking at my G-Code line by line in the area where I experienced the tool...
  13. Re: Spiral Fluting A 17" Rifle Barrel With 4th Axiz

    I had already clocked or indexed my flutes so that my fluted barrel blank screwed into the proper head-space but, (wouldn't you know it) it ended up with the top dead center of my fluted barrel...
  14. Re: Spiral Fluting A 17" Rifle Barrel With 4th Axiz

    Well I feel a little better now knowing I'm not the only one who has ever had one of these 4th-Axis snafus. I was thinking before that I might be able to emboss some lettering on the part of my...
  15. Re: Spiral Fluting A 17" Rifle Barrel With 4th Axiz

    A few days back I spent the morning cutting air as a test of my tool paths with this fluted barrel project. My home made spring loaded felt marker confirmed that all my tool paths were good but I ran...

    Re: Free Delrin

    Many thanks for such a kind offer but I was at the Sportsmans Warehouse last night and bought the shell holders that I envisioned making your Delrin into. It would have made excellent material for...

    Re: Sprutcam 8 worth it?

    I started out with SprutCam 7 and still use it. Because it's taken dyslexic-me a long time to learn how to use it I don't really want to upgrade and have to learn or relearn new features of...

    Re: Well, I did it.

    Don't you hate it when stuff like that happens. It's like we put the big whammy on ourselves by talking up a good game. I've lost count of all the times I've done this to myself.

    Awesome DIY stuff. If I want something like this I have to save up for a very long time to buy it.

  21. Re: Spiral Fluting A 17" Rifle Barrel With 4th Axiz

    No hurry; I just have a hard time picturing a 3D printed fixture in relation to spiral fluting a Glock barrel.

  22. Re: Spiral Fluting A 17" Rifle Barrel With 4th Axiz

    If this thread goes to far off the rails I'm thinking I can bring it back around once I get my 4-Jaw chuck in from china. In regard to this extended magazine I've mentioned, every part of it is...
  23. Re: Spiral Fluting A 17" Rifle Barrel With 4th Axiz

    I may lead this thread way off topic by talking about 3D printing but once I got my printer I found that I could prototype my ideas a whole lot quicker than I can set them up on my mill; and I don't...
  24. Re: Spiral Fluting A 17" Rifle Barrel With 4th Axiz

    Thanks spumco:

    I'm still waiting on that 4-Jaw chuck. It should be here soon. I bought it off of Ebay and whenever you buy something being shipped in from China they give you an estimated...

    Re: UPS a big bunch of BS

    This is kind of off topic but, I ordered a set of tires for my truck online. They shipped via UPS. I got an email notice telling me that they'd been delivered. I looked on my front porch and my...
