    Help with a silver solder problem

    I found a shop that can TIG weld it for $20.00. Now I have to decide if it's worth it or not.... :-\

    Help with a silver solder problem

    Good questions...... The base metal is forged/milled steel (as in .22 pistol frame). Ideally it should be TIG welded but I don't have access to one. It is not a repair that I plan to actually shoot although it should hold under low powered loads. (It's just that having a crack in the frame...

    Help with a silver solder problem

    I like the idea of using something to make the backer "non-stick". (When you say "correction fluid", is that the same as "white-out"?)

    Boring Bar question

    I read the plans as having the threading as one with the outer shell. It is an interrupted thread that the breechblock (also an interrupted thread) slides into and then rotates 60 deg. to lock. I can't see any way to make it other than as a part of the breech bolster.

    Boring Bar question

    Could be the same gun. The plans were originally posted in a 1944 edition of MODEL CRAFTSMAN. I found these in an issue (date unknown) of a model railroad magazine and were posted under the name of S.A. Walter. If it turns out to be the same, I will probably have many questions for you as I get...
