Thinking I'm going to sell my ion to someone local. I never use it anymore and I don't need 2 open bolt markers with another open bolt project... I could probably sell it for 300 or so locally... plus I've got project ideas that I'm going to need to fund.

Electro cocker(possibly mq), a pump(possibly mq)... yes that's 2 different mq valves. I seem to enjoy torturing my bank account.

I was gonna say, that Ion would cover one of them with a little beer money left over. Maybe one gun, switch back and froth to/from pump? Kind of a pain, but a lot cheaper.

Also, if you're going to MQ one or the other, I'd go for the electro over the pump. Gotta say, I'm still pretty happy with mine, and REALLY glad I got on the MQ bandwagon back when they were available new and not super expensive.

I've got the orracle coming, and some guy i sort of know is offering me an 05 BM with lowers, front block, bolt, sled and pump arm and a standard mq (of course i already have the 11/16th) for 350... He just wants to break even on the parts he bought and never used.

I've got some older computers I could sell on craigslist here for probably more than I would online, and still be happy with what I got out of it - I NEVER use these computers anymore. One I plugged a usb drive into to watch top gear on last week... The other sits at my mothers unused.

Well, if you have the funds and/or sellable stuff to cover both, I guess it's not so bad.

The real question is how many different colors did they turn? I have to imagine that got pretty hot pretty quick.

anyone use inventor in here? Trying to model a basic merlin body (started with extrusion) and i've added the barrel threads, but I can't seem to get the feedneck drafting correct.

any help? I can't seem to find anything useful on the web...

Would the feedneck not be just another extrusion up to the first one you made for the body? When you say "drafting" do you mean you are making it as a surface? or something else.

Not familiar with Inventor, but pretty familiar with CAD.

I would think that the feedneck would simply be a vertical cylindrical extrusion mated with the body

then blend the edges and do any subsequent work like grooves or whatever

its funny because I started with autoCAD back in 04, upgraded in college with inventor, now I use NX (which puts inventor to shame in almost every aspect)

now that I am using inventor again for my final two classes I am realizing how much I hate it, maybe I just havent used it enough but I feel lost every time I use it.

You can do that with a revolved cut in most programs. Draw a circle in your bore that is the same diameter as the bore. Draw a circle at the top of the bore that is your desired feed diameter (.75" or whatever you plan on using), with the centerlines of the two circles being aligned. Connect the quadrant points of the 2 circles with their centerpoints to get a trapezoid. Revolve around the center axis and remove.

in inventor I would just loft the two different circular sketches and subtract

theres many ways to skin a cat, whichever makes the most sense to you

and if you are dead set on physically creating that taper in the breach you would probably have the easiest time just using a four jaw on the lathe, set your compound to that angle and feed in until you are at your correct diameter and depth

otherwise cnc is the way to go fo sho

Lofting would probably be even easier, I'm just used to doing my sketches in a common plane making a revolution a more intuitive option for me.

Jeeeesh. Not to jump on the hater band wagon but looking at the latest video found here:



There appears to be a new reality T.V. show called "Dumb **** Dynasty". Ironic that they are sponsoring Dynasty, which makes this pun all that much better.
