Hope Hern customer service is better. I still have a barrel with the liner about 1/2 inch off at the breach end and a bulge in the liner . After I found out the problem I called Hern 3 times and was told someone would call Me now after over 10 years I am still waiting for the call.

Thank you much!

It is really nice to see how this is done. Zulu and Jack are artists and craftsmen.

I started the lathe out at 350 RPM and it almost beat me to death before I could get it rounded enough to move to 750 RPM's.


If you make another pattern, you should plane the corners off until you get an octagon. The octagon is much closer to a circle than a square is.

Yes it is. I champhered the edges with my router but it was just a little.
It is actually easier to just tough it out on the lathe than to push a 53 lb. block of wood through the table saw four times, and the jointer is even harder..

Zulu , Very interesting to see a pattern made . I may be missing something , but it seems simple to split the pattern blank in half along the parting line and run each half through the table saw to remove excess wood

I was thinking that an electric plane would be the way to go.

George,
An electric, hand held planer would have been perfect for the job.
I don't have one.


Moose,
Do you mean glue the two halves together then try to split it? It would destroy itself before it split.

Ok now I am confused , As I see the photos the pattern is in two parts with pins holding the two halves in alignment. Are you gluing the two halves together with a paper shim and then splitting it when done turning?
