I used to tell folks that, if reincarnation really happens, I want to come back as my wife's dog, really though, I want to come back as a machinist, who's married to my wife of course, and the dog is still in play :)

Since none of the above is really going to happen, I'm on a quest for a more perfect, affordable drill press. After talking to a couple guys who have real jobs, working for real companies that make real things for the likes of the military, the net result distilled down to a 3-phase motor with a variable frequency drive, or VFD as it's generally known.

What in the heck does this have to do with guns? Hang in a bit, I'll connect my crazy dots in a bit.

What I'm learning is that just about everything has certain frequencies where they ring like a bell. It never occurred to me that a heavy machine like a drill press could vibrate to a degree that calls attention to itself or, more importantly, could trigger vibrations further down the food chain, as in X and Y axis instrumentation.

What I discovered once the VFD and 3-phase motor were in place is, I now could dial in motor speeds that avoid the resonant frequencies of the entire machine. I may be overstating the case but, all I really want is a silent, smooth, powerful drill chuck, not a vibratory disco dance floor  :o

Which made me think about barrel tuners, something I know little to nothing about.  One more thing to think about at 3:00 am :)

Gunsmithing / Re: New Bolt

Did the bolt replacement this morning....went very easily.  Significant reduction in the sloppiness of the bolt and it runs smoothly.  I also put in one of the bolt lift kits and thoroughly cleaned all of the internals.  I check the Headspace with both Go/No-Go gauges as well as some sized brass that I was about to start loading.  I also check that a loaded round would chamber.  So all seems good to go.

We deal with this in them every few years.. im sure its here every year but sometimes it's alot worse that others..

 called Epizootic Hemorrhagic Disease, or EHD, and it's transmitted to deer through the bites of midges, small insects sometimes called no-see-ums or 'punkies.

No problem. Josh does excellent work. He has done I think 5 barrels for me and all shoot great. I have two of his prefits for my TL3 and both shoot great too. Actually going to get another in 6 Creed soon.

Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) having some impact in the South.  It is a touchy subject with me.  Will put it out there.  I am not a fan of deer farming or high fence hunting.  I am a solutions man.  But, the solution would be medieval. An uphill battle against people with tons of money and political stroke. Hope some of the fellows from WI and MN jump in about the impact infected pen raised/high fence herds have had on their wild deer.  Epizootic hemorrhagic disease (EHD) outbreaks have a serious impact in the South, Midwest and West.  Think it is vector borne.  Seems to be worse in drought conditions because the deer concentrate at water sources.  That is where you find all the carcasses.  Almost wiped out the entire Montana Milk River whitetail herd several years ago. Lived it in 2007-2008 in TN.  Sad to see the numbers of quality bucks dead on the banks of the Cumberland in August-September.  Texas has a few anthrax hot spots that go active every few years.

We have “wasting disease” in our mule deer population which has significantly killed off a lot of our local deer.  Five years ago I would routinely see 10-15 deer a day on my property. Now I see maybe  2-3 every other day. I’m curious if you all have any kind of a disease situation in your whitetail population?
