Shout out to the old man. Absolutely mangled the cutting tool on the big lathe and carried on like nothing happened. Now I've gotta change it before I can do anything I want a decent finish on. #lazyprick #beaton #firearms #beatonfirearms #gunsmith

It's the Bill-o-matic
Patent pending.

Doing the fine shaping on a custom stock for a client while he's waiting. 5 years ago I wouldn't have had the confidence to work on a clients gun while he looked over my shoulder, but i can't get the shape perfect by sending the client away. Custom 26 Nosler on a Weatherby MkV action. #customrifle #beaton #firearms #beatonfirearms #longrangeshooting

Bought the team Johnny's burgers for lunch. Got myself a chicken burger and chicken wings because I'm dumb - I can't eat chicken like the hound.

Wasn't quite quick enough - bills new Bill-o-prune. A rake and a wheel barrow with wooden 'lifters' in it. #worksafe

Still on the machine - custom muzzle brake for a semi custom build we are doing in 270. It will be interesting to see how effective it is.

303 Throat gauge - drop it in the barrel and find out how flogged out it is. The further in it drops, the more wear the barrel has and the less likely it is that it will shoot. Don't buy a lemon - buy one of these. #beaton #beatonfirearms #firearms #303 #throatgauge

Out of room - this is just my 22 cal reamers. I need a new system for storing my reamers so I can find them and keep them safe. #fml #gunsmithingproblems #beaton #firearms #beatonfirearms

Let's turn this 223 into a 243!

All the wood framing done - ready to skin the inside of this room. Time for a coffee break.

Late night work - Finished off the bedding job on this full custom F Class rifle with a machined full length alloy bedding plate, glued into the stock. Machined up three blocks that are perfectly positioned so there is no stress on the screws - all the recoil is taken up by the recoil lug. The blocks go through the stock and pull up against the alloy bedding plate that the action pulls down onto - absolutely no stock material is crushed when the action screws are done up. The perfect bedding job.
Now to just polished up the barrel, engraving, take the finger prints off, clean the barrel, clean out the ash tray and the other standard bits before it goes out tomorrow.

Sanding would have to be my least favourite gunsmithing job.
Something I forgot to mention yesterday in my Facebook video - tip number 5 is don't skip sandpaper grades. 100, 180, 240, 400, 600, 800, 1200, 2500. If you skip one you're not taking a shortcut, it takes longer and ruins more sandpaper.

Looks like I've been fingering the T1000... ... Because I have.

Bill-disassemble. For taking Remington bolts apart.
Also use able for Weatherby, Ruger and all manner of bolt action rifles that use this method of main spring system.

Must be almost time for the next GoT episode. #beaton #beatonfirearms #customfirearm #gunsmith

Machining a huge scope ring for a custom torch mount. Someone wants to fit a massive spotlight on top of his rifle. #littledick #beaton #firearms #Beatonfirearms

Gotta warm both sides if you want the bedding material to go off in this weather.

Action trued. Bolt face bored out. Sako extractor fitted. Time to fit the new barrel.

It's Super Big Bore Man - ready to fuck shit up. #beatonfirearms #superbigboreman #fuckyourbitch

Just cleaning around the edges of the thread on this 20 Tactical barrel. Polished the barrel to a mirror finish and its out the door.
