Only one way I know to do that. What's the other?
Where to start... Cnc out of a solid block. Or machine seperatley, heat the cube, freeze the ball, insert. Or, make ball. Build cube around the ball. Or...
Oh, seems like the easiest is to machine it with the final release cuts at the end.
All I meant was there was no trickery.
A 3D printer would have whipped that right out.
Making a collet for that project is smart, would save you a lot of time.
I've been working on a two-cage turner's cube right for a while, but it gets too little attention while I handle all the paying work. Someday, if it all comes together, I'll have something to show here.
We printed a model of six nested spheres.
We've made all sort of models of multiple parts that are built assembled, an example being an automotive dash vent. That's why I sometimes joke that 3D printers help engineers "Design even more stuff that can't be made!"
Know what you mean, I have a vivid memory of large, grubby, foundry foreman stomping into the design office clutching the smoking result of an automotive piston "first off" die casting... he wanted to know how he was supposed to remove the casting from the internal die pieces, something about not enough angle on the die components to allow disassembly. Oooops!
Stuffing it in the waste basket and setting fire to half the office tended to take the focus off my stuff up for a while.
At school we did the ball in the box on a CNC mill and had jaws that held the ball on the last side when it broke lose. I would have done one but was too busy making parts for a chopper shop to pay my way through.
I really want to improve my grouping. So I build that!
^^ That's not even SHOOTING anymore. It's like building a computer... **yawn**
Give me some iron sights and a steady hand thanks.
oh,I forgot to mention, I'm going to use it for a 3 inches target @ 200 yards.
You hit that with iron sights, I'm going to use my gun rest.
Didn't say I could hit anything, just that it's not really that much FUN when you the steady hand out of the equation. It's like... rolling a bowling ball down a ramp at pins. No thanks.
when you hit something that you can't even see with your eyes is always fun.. at least for me!
I also enjoy iron sights, but as long as I can make the target more than 50% of the time..
a gun rest is also a very helpful tool to sight a scope.
3 inches at 200 yards with iron sights is very easy for a decent shooter. In NRA High Power competition the range goes out to 600 yards. In the National Matches at Camp Perry the long distance shoot is 1,000 yards. This is all with iron sights.
I was going to add something like this, but didn't want to sound like a braggard. My favorite shooting is done at 200 yards with open sights on my 10/22 at a 3" square steel we have set up. No rest. I'd love to say that I nail it all the time, but I'm better than 50% in standing position, about 85% in prone.
I call it my poor mans 45/70 buffalo shoot.
Congrats to all the sharp shooters here!
I'm not one, so my rest is going to be very helpful.
I like your rest and your choice of guns. I have 2, one in 22-250 and the other is 243.
