Nice work. The vent holes are drilled into the larger dia. shroud support? If so, I was wondering how are you drilling in that center one? Is there going to be a clearance issue with the drill bit? I like watching this stuff you guys do with real machines.

Thanks

I havent entirely decided how I'm going to drill the vent holes so I haven't thought about the chuck clearing the part. I guess I have homework now.

The examples of internals I've seen offer several options. Crosman's P-rod are 90 degrees to centerline for example. I have dovetail cutters and can make cuts on eack side of the tube just in front of the shroud supports or drill in at 45 degrees either in front of, or into the shroud supports. If the chuck bumps it, I'll think of something and give a full report.

I'm sure you have a bunch of ways to do it, I just like sitting back and watch all this neat stuff being made from the sidelines.
