  • Revolver Gunsmith Tool

    Took me a few weeks to read through the projects posted; what a pleasure! If this has already been posted, it's in a dead photo link from my end.
    Here are a few gunsmith specific tools I made when learning the manual lathe.

    As you can see, simple tool for holding the fragile revolver cylinder ejector rod for unscrewing from the cylinder (left hand thread).


    This project and a few more were the cause of my love affair with Hardinge toolroom lathes.

      • Nice work on those tools, they look good. The engraving is very nice, was that done on a CNC mill?

          Yes, Engraved later on, as I gained access and experience with CNC machines.

                I copied mine from one madman made, and he had a really good idea on that attachment point. unscrew the acme thread as far as it will go. Hacksaw it off with say a 1/4 or 3/8 still sticking out. in that stub-sticking-out, hacksaw a screw driver slot and screw the stub in all the way to the bottom. Then use the cut off part is the bolt to hold the thing together.

                Its not as pretty as the one above, but is one of the more useful things I've made

                in Toronto Ontario - where are you?

                      • Shameless copy of commercial product, as posted about here:

                        Scribed lines


                        Punch centered on lines - the wonkiness is a matter of camera angle:


                        In high school shop class 60 years ago, my biggest weakness was drilling holes where they were supposed to be. It's still a challenge for me. I'm hopeful that this punch will help.

                        Parallax is pretty much a non-issue with the punch's lines being scratched on the bottom.

                        The lines were scratched by a carbide scribe held in the mill. I wasn't real careful on the lathe about keeping the top and bottom surfaces parallel, so it was difficult making the scratch depth consistent - some fiddling involved. I'll know better next time.

                            Acrylic, aka Plexiglas. I think - it's something that I found at our dump, so I'm not positive.

                            • I wonder if there's a way to keep the bottom from getting scratched with use.

                              • Whats the business end look like? Is it just a punch. Looks clumsy to use.
