Default Teutonic Twenty-two Screws

I already made the replacement screw for the left side of the breech block on this rifle http://thehunterslife.com/forums/sho...t=15614&page=4 because the 'thing' that was in there was wacko - a piece of aluminum 'threaded' by screwing into the hole. Here's a picture of that finished screw. (Not colored/blacked yet.)

While the screw on the other side was 'fine', I decided I might as well replace it too while the process of making the screw was fresh in my mind. The following is a sequence of photos representing the process.
Starting blank.

To head diamter - 0.236"/6mm.

Shaft diameter - 0.178"/4.5mm

Screw cutting 28 pitch threads on 0.178" shaft for a length of 0.250" by rotating head by hand.

Finished screw-cutting

After sawing off.

After cleaning up the top and getting to proper thickness of 0.125".

In place.

I was having some issues with misfires because the extractor wasn't closing completely. After replacing this screw, that problem has been eliminated.

I'll color the screws before too long.

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. John 8:32

"We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful." ~ C.S. Lewis.

Do not confuse technical skill for wisdom and do not confuse strength for skill. Paul Skvorc
