Well it seemed easy enough ,,make a CXA holder,, I have 4 Aloris holders and not one are the same! so I download a machinest program that does dovetails calculations enter all the dimension that I avg from the 4 other holders and the main problem is the widest part of the dovetail the program gave me a dimension of 2.201 and the 4 samples were closer 2 2.125 to 2.130.

then i tried the 2 pins in the dovetail both were .250 and that gave me a dimension of 1.518 avg and using that number still wasnt close to what I'm measuring for the widest part of the dovetail,,, so i guess my question is

is it that important to be that precise?? if so you would think aloris would be alot closer with thier dimensions.

I have a avg of the depth of the dovetail is .553 and 2 of the holders were .005 diff from one side to the other also making sure i didnt measure the relief toward the center.

Will 1018 work?

Any help will be greatly appreciated thanks in advance
