View Full Version : Cutting & Crowning - Ben Wa Style
January 14, 2004, 17:46
I know Gary has been on me about the picture and i found it today. The barrel was cut Jeter Style with a dremel tool. I used the mark I eyeball to square it up with a file. I crowned it with a marble and some JB Bore paste in under an hour. Total cost was 1 dremel cutting wheel, everything else i had.

Nice sano job, Chris. Amazing, a marble and bore paste does that.
Is an air cut-off tool (AKA "whiz wheel") too fast to cut a barrel with? I'm thinking the heat build-up may be too much for the temper of the steel?
My skill with a Dremel and cut-off wheels sucks - most of the time they crack and shatter on me half-way thru a job, and I never seem to be able to hold a line worth a damn.... :redface:
Thanks - TimV

An air cut-off tool should work as well as a Dremel does.
If your cutting discs are fracturing, then either you are applying pressure rather than letting the disc cut at it's own speed, the discs aren't rated to the speed they're running at or the disc is wobbling due to worn bearings in the tool or a bent shaft. I've been there:wink:
