I can dial it in to less than a tenth pretty easily with that spider it's chucked up in. Sometimes it takes longer than others though, not sure why that is.Hi,
Jamie, how close can you dial that barrel in when you set it up.
I'm building a Commander and sooner or later need to cut the barrel back a hair and chamfer it!
I actually have a drawing for the main block partially finished. I used it for making notes while I designed it. Once the fixture was finished, I didn't have much incentive to finish the drawing. But I really should, and will post it here.I like that one! Do you have a dimensioned drawing or sketch you could share?

I have dialed in on the outside of the barrel and cut the crown, just to see what would happen. To my surprise, accuracy did not seem to suffer at all. I'm not advocating that though. But I have tried it.
The rod was not hard at all to make, it was dead simple. Just turn the rod with tailstock support and a sharp tool. Then make the bushings.Hi,
Thanks, I saw where a guy drilled a 1/2" hole in round stock, put in a set screw, then put the barrel in and then set it up in a 4 jaw chuck and dialed it in on the outside of the barrel and it looked great but was just wondering.
Megafiddle, VERY nice jigs!
