New VSR and L96 chasis thoughts?

Seems everyone likes stocks but there really are none. Many people have more than one gun. A multi-chassis stock would be cool.

Well to be honest they are pretty darn easy to make. So I had a thought. I could make a new chassis that is gun agnostic. That is, you could use it for either VSR10 or L96 by swapping in and out some fabricated components that bolt in. Probably a square tube setup like Smokeys but probably with side plates like RH does. That is the simplest to do which keeps price down. With the commercial AR15 butt stock and a gaudy grip people tend to gobble it up. The work is making it gun agnostic which could be cool.

I don't know how much would people pay for a new stock like that that had CNC'ed bits to swap out that was super rigid and was strong enough to be used for a real steel gun?

Maybe a project for next year. Maybe not. Either way I am interested in hearing options on the subject.

I am really partial to the EGW.

I got this one, vise and mill bits too. em45f7555966

Remember to drill and bolt round tube mount for the drill press head and at the base. It will spin the head on the round pole, it is just held in place with a set screw.

Mount this to the table, your golden. em56447ec0ef

Good luck!
I was thinking something more like this.

I know my capabilities will be limited, but I don't plan on anything super large, or complicated. Maybe I will just save up and get a small benchtop mill. God it sucks not being rich. :-/
Yep and they have them in stock at harbor freight all the time. Just tighten it up, you'll see how and why when you look at it, and keep it lubed, it will be quite fine. :)

Drill press milling, notice he mills along the Y axis, drill presses do not like milling along the X it kicks the head pretty good when the bit bites in. -

If you have not seen these check them out. They are from the MIT and there are 10 videos I think. You can learn more in a few hours than you can all year making mistakes with these videos.
Dam, I guess I know what I will be doing over the next few days.
If you want free CAD look for a program called MGED. Its an open-source CAD system that the US military use to design tanks. It's free and legal and you can get it here

You can download tutorials for it too, and if you can't find the tutorial I have it in PDF format and would be more than happy to E-mail it to you.

It's not the EASIEST CAD program to master, but it's not the hardest either. The trickiest bit about it is that for the most part you dont use a graphical interface to build your objects, It IS possible, but for absolute accuracy you have to enter it all manually by dimensions which is easy as long as you have a big notepad and have the type of brain that can visualise something.

Once you have mastered the basics (take the tutorial step by step) MGED has a whole bunch of ready-made textures and materials, or you can free-form materials for opacity, reflection and light.

I highly recommend it, you aren't going to be turning out fantastic RIF models in 10 minutes, but if you are serious enough about your own projects to put the time in to learn it, and money is an issue then I dont think you will get a better free CAD system.

That was the lathe I was going to get.
Now just need to get it and sneek it by the wife.... hmmm

Well been thinking about that, but I will get one as soon as I get my re-enlistment money. So that should be this month
And I am going to get it one way or another. Need one last "toy" before my little spotter comes into the world.

Could get sooner if someone were to by my PWD

Thanks tarmageddon, I will have to check that out. Right now I am in the precess of making a rough idea on a full size piece of paper so I can get the actual dimensions. I already have changed things 4 times. I will take a pic of it once I finish the 1st draft. I wanted to do it on paper first so I wouldn't spend an hour making a small area, then have to delete it. I am just going to go to CAD after a few revisions.
