Nice going Marc.
A question, on the top and bottom rails.
Did you machine a full radius on the mating surfaces and or do something else?
If full radius, how did you accomplish that?
Roy S.December 4, 2007 at 9:21 pm #28656
Bar in a lathe, I’ve heard called line boring. We use a piece of hardened drill rod as a tool, just grind a flat (for set screw, holds tool in place) on the side and put a fine thread set screw in behind for adjustment.
If you use a follower rest, you’ll get a very steady cut.
Just for the record, I just made a layout and using 1.25″ dia. square end end mill with the head set at 45 degs. it misses a true radius by .012″, but if I lean the head over to 30 degs from horizontal it comes out .001″ off.
I would have never tried thinking without checking it would have been farther out than that.
Just shows you what I know. 🙂
I plan to bolt and bond the upper and lower rails to the frame tube.
I’ll use AEROPOXY STRUCTURAL ADHESIVE-ES6209, probably no need for the bolts, but why not. 🙂
Thank you very much for the info.
Are the people on this forum great or what?????

There look like quite a few home builds starting at one time 😀 . Looks like an intresting new year ! .Im waiting for the new year (mainly because i havent finished the drawings still 🙁 ) . Looks a solid build Marc so what are you going to do differant on this one . What trigger group are you going to do ! Chance to change that crap shear engagement ? . 😀 THE THING OF NIGHTMARES!………….HEHEDecember 5, 2007 at 4:34 pm #28695cygnus-x-d82Participant
ohhh yeah you got bit by a mad machinist/talon bug….
my absolute max was with purelead 500grain and it hit 604 FPE, roundballs can reach 1100 fps…which is prolly the more useable of the two since 1000-1100 fps, is really flat, and on most game will prolly be just as lethal
word of advise…clean all lube off the ammo…it will faul the barrel and not do any good anywaysDecember 5, 2007 at 7:44 pm #28697voltar-1Participant
Looking real fine.
Will you have a seperate breech lock? to prevent the breech slide popping forward?
I oughta get to work :):):):)

Good to hear from you again!!
Na haven’t experienced a point to that feature. As hunting isn’t allowed here? What’s yours doing at the moment?
And since we are at it. might be a nice moment to post some pics of your work here walter? With the TOG on a low profile at the moment?
I would love to get a gettogether with all of you guys here on TAG/TOG. Like a fun shoot! But haven’t got the momey so that would never work 😥
Regards and take care,

Looking good Marc.
Question, what material did you use for the valve body and breech slide?
Roy S.December 15, 2007 at 7:15 pm #29431vincentvangervenParticipant
hello fellow airgunner! 8) man, you’re doing an awesome job there mate! keep up the good work. cheers, vincentJanuary 10, 2008 at 5:53 am #31345vincentvangervenParticipant
hi marc, made any prgress with yur new toy 🙂January 11, 2008 at 2:59 am #31415jezxParticipant
looking good , i make alot of big bore ag’s , just wondering what size port you are going with in the valve, most of my guns are not with in line valves .and none with inline big bore …. so i im curios as to what inline valve size youd go with for the .45 , takes alot of stuff to move a 200-300gr slug .January 11, 2008 at 3:15 pm #31448jezxParticipant
9mm should do it . i have a .475 which has a 3/8′(‘minus a 5/32” pin) opening and redices to 5/16 at the barrel . it only runs on 2000psi , but gets good speed with 300gr slug. 9mm inline . should be way way better. and better again on 3000psi+ .January 11, 2008 at 8:02 pm #31467cygnus-x-d82Participant
i think my valve ID is .25, and the seat is about .308
at 500+ fpe a 405 grain has the power to topple over that pc case that i shoot at heheheApril 1, 2008 at 1:36 am #36896voltar-1Participant
Marc, looks grand!!!!!!! 🙂
Would like more details on your valve please?
I setup my press to handle a .457″ swage die. Works a treat for upsetting and sizing 240 grain pistol bullets. Going to play around with some other bullets and possible make up a die set for dual diameter stuff.
Got that going on for my .25 so be a piece of cake to do others 🙂
Hope to hear of more progress as you can !!
