I have spent some time clocking the ground bar with a machined taper to fit in my tailstock and I am pleasantly surprised. In fact, I am going to have a go with the grizzly rod and see what happens.
A weekend project.

Vince kindly loaned me a copy of Gordy Gritters chambering DVD. I have spent several hours viewing it. I have finally managed to find and purchase a copy of the DVD. So I can return Vinces copy and thank him for the loan of his copy.
The DVD was mouth-wateringly expensive considering it was made in 2018. I could have bought two 1Kg tubs of Vitavouri powder and had change for what I paid for it. But I had to have it.
I also bought some other DVD,s covering chambering of Remington actions and some other run of the mill chambering stuff that caught my interest.
I am currently looking at adding a rotary table to my Mill and some indexing stuff. Broaching is something else I am interested in.
I just need a bigger Shed.
What did cross my mind was at 70 years old I could finally have the workshop I always wanted then snuff it and my Son would not have a clue what to do with it. Morbid or what.

My DVD,s are in the UK getting excited it won't be long now. I was bored not a lot going on in my life at the moment. I spent a day dismantling and cleaning my tool post holders and tool holders and fitted them all with new inserts. I did not realize how many I had. I filled a shelf. I also have quite a few miniature carbide holders as well since Ovenpaa introduced me to them. It's surprising how useful they have become. I did not realize how many boxes of inserts I had either. I binned a couple of parting tools I could never get them to work. Though I should probably have another go at parting off my Lathe now runs a tad slower since sorting the belt and pulleys out but it seems to have a lot more torque I can take deeper cuts without it stalling. In fact, I can not remember it stalling at all since sorting the belt and pulleys out.
As you have probably guessed by now I am bored I need something to do.

I guess its Youtube time.

The DVD,s arrived they charged me duty on them. The Gordy gritter DVD is the most expensive DVD I have ever bought in my life.
I watched one based on chambering a barrel on a Remington action. It's aimed at the home machinist, not a professional gunsmithing shop. Its a step by step DVD. It cleared up a lot of my questions.
The only issue is they use a viper barrel holding jig in a four-jaw independent chuck. But you don't have to do that you can employ the same technique with the barrel through the headstock using a spider. All in all, not a bad video. As I say it cleared up some of my questions especially about working out the dimensions and cutting the bolt head recess.
The second DVD was just as informative again a Remington action re barreled in .308.
I watched one chambering between centers in fact I watched it twice I found that really cool.
The Gordy Gritter DVD is tomorrow's viewing I also have his book.
Some of the toolings they used is also very interesting. But I have blown this year's Toys budget so they will have to wait.

Watched the Gordy Gritter DVD. His method is a lot different from most of the other chambering videos I have watched. In fact, a guy who booked onto one of Gordy,s teach-ins used his methods then very quickly changed to cambering through the headstock.
It's an interesting watch if you are into that kind of thing. I am obviously into that kind of thing.
