Discussion of tools and equipment for gunsmithing and refinishing of Mosin Nagant Rifles

Question

Postby Marauder 1 » Fri Feb 21, 2014 9:07 pm

I was wondering if there is a tool for a lathe that will hold a piece of round stock at the opposite end of the chuck to keep it from flexing while you turn the center down. I was thinking something like a drill chuck but I know that is not correct.

Thanks
Mark

What your talking about is called tool deflection. Yes you should support both ends to minimize this as much as posable!

You can see some of it in action here and he talks about several styles. All his videos are a must watch.
