So, this past weekend I went to Tucson Iron, looking for some well casing. Success! I found some 8″ ID 1/8th inch well casing! Now I can make my crucible! From there I went to Industrial Metal Supply for a steel disk for the base. I bought a 1/4 inch 10″ diameter disc, but after I brought it home, it may be too much. I also have an 1/8th inch 10″ disc that I’ll probably use. I’ll be putting up pictures and the process on a page in the next day or so. Stoked!
Today I also received my order from Sarco. Woo-hoo! Three 1903 Enfield drill barrels that were purchased for their .30 caliber bores to make barrels for my PPS-43 project, as well as for my 7.62×25-based AK. I also got a couple more hammer springs and three 1911 mag catch springs to use in AK trigger groups as the disconnector spring. Happy day!
