308 Build (4 replies)

I have been working on a 308 build that I started last year. Doing design and build as I go. Most of it I have worked out but still making changes as I go along. Last night I started on the trigger block. Came up with a nice concept to have a solid bottom with no slot showing thru. Starting milling this afternoon and suddenly realized I had started machining the wrong side. So will need to change the design or later make a new part. Either way the gun will still work.

Clean, Organize Garage & Projects (3 replies)

Well one week of holidays has flown by. Managed to tackle a few projects as I felt up to it. Below in pictures I cleaned the mill area, hung a saw on wall, clamps sorted, and installed a shelf the I can use when I make parts. I added the same shelf to the table on wheels to make it larger and collapsible for more working area. Mounted a 220 volt heater for winter and had wired up the breaker and shielded cable this morning and all works! Last picture, I put my saw on wheels to move it around ea...
