Some more progress on the duplicator. I'm hoping to have it running by the end of the week.
Got the follower mounts attached, dialled in and welded. Gunsmith is doing the actual follower and tips.

Well... some more progress on the duplicator. All done now exept for the linkage between the two sets of clamps.
Off work at the moment (flu) so once it warms up (winter here, Dunedin, New Zealand, frosty start but sunny day) I'm going out to my shed to have a look at the cocking piece mounted sights on my fathers rifle.

I'm also looking at using one of those Parker Hale fold down aperture sights for my 7x57R.
I'll look more seriously once it's actually put together.

Getting there matey!
No flex anywhere by the looks of the photos, certainly impressive work.

http://www.photosize.com/

A webpage offering free photo resizing. Very large photos distort the forums so a photo or image of approximately 1024 pixels or less wide is advisable.

NE recommends LANDSCAPE images be resized to no more than 1024 pixels in width.

PORTRAIT photos should have a width of less than 1024 as the height of the image will need a lot of scrolling depending on the resultant image height. NE recommends approximately 600 pixels for a PORTRAIT image. Depending on its height.

The webpage works by allowing you to select an oversize image, select its new width in pixels, and then the image to downloaded to your PC. You then need to upload the smaller image to a web image hosting site or other net account.




A free site that allows you to resize your photos to a manageable size before posting them on the Forums.

About 1024 pixels wide is a good maximum.

Ok, I'll resize for future pics.

First run of the duplicator
Aaand it was a disaster. Good thing that it was only some cheap Macrocarpa.
Still, a few lessons learnt:

1: Watch your bit to make sure that it doesn't move in the collet!
It had gone about 1/4 inch in the collet before I noticed, with somewhat... bad... results.

2: Find a better way to index the blank to the pattern
One side was pretty close to the roughsawn.

3: Put a 100mm spacer in each end instead of 50mm, at least until die grinder is fitted.
The mounting bar and collar that the router goes into interferes with the faceplates.

The die grinder I'm getting has a long, narrow neck that will put the bar and collar well above the collet and bit.

As it didn't come with instructions, I'm having to learn as I go along. All good fun.
