I've had a few set-backs........air-comp finally gave up,
and my new digi-cam was incompatible with my computer!
Here's a few pics, I hope!

Stock:

Machining the french cuts:

Re-machined rear slide serrations, new frontslide serrations, french cuts,
Bo-Mar cut, top of slide flattened, ejection port re-machined:

The corner where I spend most of my time:

I'm still learning how to use this camera. The focus is not as clear as I'd like.
More pics later!

Nice work on the slide! :D However, I am a little confused... :? Where in this photo is the small beverage fridge? I also only see one stool... Where is a guy supposed to sit an loiter? Wait a second... I see a little bit of room next to your bench vise! ;)

This one looks like it is going to be special. Great photos.

Couple of more pics:

Ball cuts:

Serrating top of slide:

I think I'm getting the hang of this cam. Anyone know how to reduce the
'noise' in the serrations? I think I've seen it called 'moire'.

Aside from enjoying a look-see at Chuck's craftsmanship ( which I always pick up something new from ) it's really cool to get a peek at the Bat Cave! :D

Seriously, I'm so remote from seeing anybody elses shop, that I really enjoy having a look at where the rest of you guys get to spend your days.

And every time I get to look around, I start wondering just how long it would take me to get my shop picked up ready for a picture. And then I frown................. :? :(

Oh... yeah, great John..... :( Here I have been concentrating on completing the two I have on the go so I can post pictures of them, and you go and remind me that it may be a good idea to pick up the shop before I do that... LOL I'm told that I still have a shop somewhere under it all, but I'm beginning to question it! :D

That corner looks familiar. I will sure miss looking over your shoulder, Chuck. :cry: Thanks for your help and time. I'll keep checking in on this site, though to see what great stuff you and your LTW gang are putting out.
I'll be looking for that first auction or raffle.
Best,
Lenny

Chuck, I'm not getting the pics, except the one that says, "the corner where I spend most of my time". It appears to show the junction of two city streets just after sunset, with lots of seedy-looking people loitering about, and bits of trash blowing around in a stale breeze. What's up with that :lol: ?

Jim,
Sorry, but those pics are gone along with my old server.
It is easy to explain, though.
Slide is grabbed in a 6" mill vise.
Vise is rotated 90 degrees and indicated square.
Mill head tilted 35 degrees from vertical.
I use a 3/32" 4 flute carbide end mill at 2000rpm. .015" deep.
I hope this helps! :D
Chuck
