friend of mine is into that Black Powder stuff. He had a jig, to hold a revolver steady so he could reload it. he had this thing.. The butt of the grips sit into the gouge area...just doesn't sit in tightly, was cut at the wrong angle...Felt area... Is where the cylinder sits, with the hammer at half-cock....only..the hammer won't go that far...makes it hard to rotate the cylinder. hinge wasn't done the best, either. Bought some 3/4" x 4" x 24" White Oak..some new hinges, and a set of Dremel bits... Bandsaw to cut 2 pieces. Blade has way too much set...need to plane the rough edges.."shooting Board & plane? Not exactly. Stanley No. 3c. test fit the two parts.. Will do, for a start..set up the Dremel with a cutting disc..and, once I located where the cut needed to go.. I cut a line straight down. Old one was at an angle. Move the pattern out of the way, grab a gouge and a hammer.. Chop out the waste. Then lay out for the hinge's location.. To match the old one's location. Chop a recess... Make sure it fits... mark the locations of the screws.. Start a hole for the drill to follow ( they tend to wander a bit).. Drill a couple pilot holes...and.. wax the screws up, and grab a screwdriver. Laid out the other cut, and rough cut it to shape.. Not attached, yet. need to adjust to fit the revolver better, when Mr. Bishop stops by tomorrow afternoon...he can add his own felt, once the jig is stained and finished,, I even tried to match the grain to the old jig....hope it works like he wants it to... stay tuned
Soo, Bought a 1x6x48" plank of pine. Lowes finest.. Handsaw to cut to the length needed. Coping saw to cut the supports out of the waste. #78 plane to cut a rebate on each end, to house the supports. Drill a few holes, two were for a dowel rod. Added a metal bracket in the middle, to help hold the shelf while I installed it.. Picture was a puzzle we put together, then glued up. Might get a frame...someday.. Some of the screw holes needed a pilot hole, like on the corners. Glued and screwed, a push drill to make the pilot holes, first. A spade bit to make the deeper ones in the supports. A 3" long screw was then driven into the King studs on each side. just a pine project...
