Here's two more involving a hardened steel pin that broke in a blind hole. He tells me he had all the fun he wanted getting the pin out. I believe it!! SW

And here we have the ramrod pipe fully inletted by kaintuck under the watchful eye of his shop foreman... who sometimes doesn't use deodorant! SW

Boys.....ot was a real burner here in ten today :kap: ...I mowed the grass and replaced one railroad tie along the driveway....and that burned me out for the day!!!
After lunch, I pulled the Lexington riffle down, last Saturday got the thimbles bedded in, but not drilled.
The jig is a bought jig from a fellow in another forum, he makes a different type now....but a long bit is placed into the one hollow bolt, and slowly drilled thru to the other side.
I like to drill only to the brass ear, thru hard maple, it takes a few cleanings, I don't want the 1/16" bit to wander......then I remove the jig, rr thimble and drill the brass by hand...then reassemble everything, and the jig, and the drill completely thru.
A person CAN use a drill press....but my shop ain't air conditioned ..... :crzy:
After these pics, I placed the nose cap also.....so, now we just start shavin wood.....there's more of the 250 buck wood blank on the floor now, than is on the rifle :-?
Tomtom didn't wanna help today.....to tired, to hot... :tinhat:

often seems that the expensive blank is more on the floor than on the rifle but then that is part of the "sculpting" one looses whats not needed to find the work of art held within , an artist eye sees what is within the raw material and his hands bring it forth - ive already told you i believe your the artist here and the craftsman who combines the materials to produce a useful tool that is a work of art

More work on this rifle. Here we see the shop foreman checking that the stock is symmetrical after being thinned. Much more of that expensive blank now lays on the floor.

I see the shop foreman has a big dish of cat stars... for such an important job, he should be eating canned cat food! ;) :bigrin: SW

You guys are kind....I see all my mistakes, I consider a good rifle, is one I wouldn't change anything once it's done.....so far...I haven't achieved that!!!
A fellow bought the Moravian rifle, so it's ready to ship to Montana monday.
I haven't ever heard back from the fellow that bought my cannon, maybe he just displays it....but, he could be hunting wild hogs with it...he IS in texas~~
This Lexington riffle is at the 20% stage...where it takes 80% of work, and it looks like 4hrs of work didn't do a thing!
Around the nose is tedious with dips and curves....and around the RR entry, then the whole length of the RR Grove needs a straight line gouged, to make the eye think 'slim' to the forend.....but get it wavy, and it screws the whole rifle......so, sometime, tomom needs to be lock outta the shop at these points.....he trys to help with his big head right in my way....
We will skinny it up more before that patch box is started.....and it's gonna be the biggest one to date.....

In this pic, our hero has scraped the stock rather than sanded it. He can explain the whys and wherefores of that process. SW

Thank you again for posting....
See where I stopped scraping and the ruff of the rasp work?
I have worked the stock down quite a bit with my favorite rasp, but now it's a scrapers job. I could make small blocks of wood and sand, but sanding will tear the wood sometimes, pull out, I think they call it. A scraper cuts the wood like a wood plane....tiny little curls....I have a set of metal scrapers in all sizes. I can also use broken glass for that final scraping....the wood will still go thru wetting then heating to raise the grain, and steel wool rubbin.....
But THAT is a long way off.....the wood is to bulky and the decorative groove along the forearm needs to be cut in.......
Tiredness now is setting in...it's Rainey sunday evening here in tenn.....so, tomatoe sandwhich suppertime......Have a good evening yall....

"This Lexington riffle is at the 20% stage...where it takes 80% of work, and it looks like 4hrs of work didn't do a thing!" they part of the process that really counts , the part that starts to form the finished product into the piece of art they actually are

Here we have pics of the thinning process. Seems ironic to spend so much for a walnut board only to have about half of it swept up and thrown away.

I think that's the plan, though... take a walnut board and remove everything that doesn't look like a flint lock stock. ;)

An electric Dremel??? Your Amish pals might have a comment about that! :rotflma: SW

That there is a battery operated Dremel.....that's permitted :rotflma:
I used it around the lock area to just get that radii purty........ :thnk:
The big deal is barely noticeable in the pictures....the little line along the forearm, the line will form the groove......the groove will be a step for a slight dish that will run parallel to the barrel and RR........

Fun getting everything straight.......but it a hobby.....kinda like finding a good thing on Lindsey...... :crzy: :P

These pics show the slight concavity being made along the ramrod channel. Extra touches like this separate good flintlocks from the truly superb. SW
