Hey all, for a fixture project at school (tech) I building a barrel vise, but have come to a stand still when it comes to finding some common barrel contours in TPI (taper per inch) for my bushings.

What I'm looking for are the following barrel contours in tpi...

savage varmint
savage sporter
er shaw #4 (I think its a straight taper at 1.125" but not sure)

and probably some more when I figure out what other barrels I may have in the future.

Feel free to post others as well.

SR

Drop E.R. Shaw an e-mail. They should be able to provide
that info. There may even be drawings on their site, with
some of this info.

I'm at school, firewalled right now. IIRC they are pretty vague on their website, will try emailing tonight.

If you can pull up the following web site at school, you will have your information on standard contours by various points of measurement...

Keep in mind that different mfg's have different specs for the same contour number. Brownells has a contour chart on their website and in the catalog and Midway might as well, though I'm not sure about Midway. You can buy blank blocks for most vices that you cut to the size and shape you need for a specific barrel. Don't forget you'll need some rosin.

IDBOB- I'll take a look at brownells, that thought didn't even cross my mind. Right now I've got access to all the material that I could ever want so blanks aren't a problem.

Will post a picture of the finished project when I get it done in a day or two. Right now I've got the vise parts all finished, just working on the bushings now.
