Yup. Different diameters give different effects. Fun to try different combinations. Sure is great bein' retired...

Been a while since I posted any pics online -so here goes:

I guess this is what you call "lipstick on a pig"

Image
I made the jeweling too short, so I was going to take it apart and finish it, but I kinda like it like this. The pic doesn't do it justice. My old digicam doesn't get much use. I think my phone takes better pics.

This is the drill press set up I use. I posed the cratex stick in the chuck for the pic and I didn't want to cut it until I needed it. Best to chuck the stick as close to the chuck as possible without the chuck hitting the work.

I tried a jeweling jig like the one Brownells sells, but once you get the hang of it, you find out you really don't need it. Just rotate the piece in the jaws by eye so the overlaps work the way you want. As long as you are consistent in your rotation, you will never tell if you are out a few degrees on the rotation. The critical part is the amount of movement in the longitudinal direction. Any messin up here and you notice it. In my case, exactly two rotations of the hand crank gave me just the right overlap. I tried three cranks on this compression tube. If I take it apart again, I'll buff it off in the lathe and do it at the tighter spacing. The finer you make the finish on the work prior to jeweling, the better it will look.

The duct tape is to seal a light leak. My shop is also my darkroom, loading room, junk collector, etc.

You don't have to do the whole tube, just the part that shows. If you trace around the opening with a sharpie while the tube is in the gun, you won't make the dumb mistake I did.

I think Paul Capello (the guy who does video reviews for PyramydAir among other things (he also makes custom computers)) made an instructionnal vid about it.

Yes he did, and it was quite a good video, it shows how to create markings to manually index and move your piece...

Here is the link...

Ok correct meif I wrong but it my world. This, that is JEWELED is the breach block. The compression tube it the outter metal casing upon the gun. Hence the question about doing the compression tube. The block is a must IMHO, but the tube :rolleyes: Should have been done at the factory to begin with upon all under levers and side cockers. :mrgreen:

Hi Whitewolf,

the compression tube is the unit, in a HW97K, as an example, or a TX200, that is "Inside" the cylinder assembly or barrel/cylinder assembly as seen on T.W. Chambers co, HW97K parts list # BRL201.
Maybe on other guns what you are saying is right but the item that is jewelled in the picture is the "compression tube" that has the "piston" Inside of it. Pretty nice , I think..

For what it`s worth.. Be well.
