Always good to get a few positive responses
I'll try this in order...
Rob, he hasn't had it yet... .Will tomorrow (erm today technically now!) I tried the GID bit, there is a fibre optic rod in the little hole in the post. the two little holes cross drilled into that have green GID resin in them... Didn't work. Well, you try these things
David, I always like to make things for friends.... it's the time I find hard to get hold of!
Glen, I like the sight site... lol I would like a bucket full of radio active isotopes (tritium) and no ill effects.... I could get some mighty fine glowing done then
Andy (you big ol' global Mod' you!
) It's a 4mm grub screw (similar to the original) the hole can be seem in the top of the sight. It would be nice to have a dot in there... If it were mine I might have used an LED torch modification with the fibre optic. But that would be massively time consuming and I'm fighting to get time in the workshop as it is!
Not set up nor do I have the space for an anodising rig... But it appears there is one locally....
leading me to... Lyn, I'm thinking a visit could be on the cards.... Maybe not for this... But more for a general chat n visit.... Holywell's on the doorstep! (And only up he road from my renovation project house). We will have to arrange a visit. Gonna have to be Feb now though. Booked up solid!!
Eric, As explained to Rob, It is there....It just sucks! I'm contemplating a 1.5mm slot through the top of the post removing all the 1.2mm drillings and then filling the slot with GID resin? I'll have to asses this when I look at it tomorrow.
If I'm back from work early I can get it done on the mandrel shouldn't take long. The resin sets in 10 min's
Jonny, It's for an old "plinker" It only shoots at about 5Lbs! "Too short and undersized to barrel" could you clarify that a bit. I'm not quite there... Under size and short what? where? It's the same dimensions as the original Webley part. Except for the ramp... I didn't have the right "FOC" material for that. The grub screw is the metric equivalent of the imperial one in the original too.
No worries either way. I would just like to understand what you're saying
Tis very good to have something to talk about again.... Got a new little project on the go that is currently top secwet. But will be posting up an old project I thought I already had and a little fun one I did a week or so ago.
