Rookie report part 3 continued

Post by jim c 351 » Tue May 31, 2016 10:55 am

Here are the tools I came up with to work on the barrel jacket.
The hex nut is bored out to fit over the barrel nut and is used to remove/replace the barrel nut and barrel jacket bushing.
The wooden dowel is a 1/2 inch dowel inserted in a 3/4 inch dowel and lathe turned to fit inside the barrel jacket bushing.
Makes a hard job very easy.
Hope you enjoyed my presentation.

Jim,
That look's like what I had in mind. I wonder if you could make me one.
Let me know the cost if you care to tackle another set.

Hi All, brand new to your forum. I just purchased my first 2 Model 81's,both in .35.
I am on the hunt for a barrel break down tool and came across the one made out of the G8 Hex Nut made by Jim.
Jim, if you see this please contact me, I would love to purchase one of these from you. Thanks Doug B.

I too am interested, price??
I have a winchester choke tube out of sheet metal that does good; it just won't hold up on a stubborn barrel nut. & a heavy duty barrel bushing tool would help too.
