Hi everyone, here's my first post here.

Basically, this is not my project, I was in charge of blueprint and all the manufacturing job is done by a friend of mine.

Enjoy the pics







































































































The project is still ongoing. And now we face a problem which is we don't have enough detailed drawings for this project. Until now, most of the details are from a book which called "LeeRoy Wisner's handbook of hard-to-find gun parts drawings" and some lucky(maybe not) guess. If anyone can provide more blueprints that will be appreciated.

Kindly Regards
Leo

That's really cool!   I'll bet there are a lot of people out there who wish they had access to that kind of manufacturing equipment.... Including me.

Nice work.  I was wondering how you machined the mag well?  did you use a t-slot cutter through the holes in the pistol grip for the square end and a radius slot cutter on the other side?

He used the end mill to cut the mag well. Actually he should finish the mag well first and then the horizontal work, but everyone has his first time

Leo you have some very impressive work there, and the quality looks to be top notch work, and I'm very much looking forward to seeing more.

with the economy being held down by obama, most people don't have the money for building, with many of them having to sell parts kits just to make it through the winter. as a result, there are few complete builds from start to finish, like yours.

I hope more people will see the work you did here, and get the building bug, especially the scratch building bug..

Way to go...  and I look forward to seeing more on this one, and others...

Real nice work... Does that book have any drawings on the potato digger or the Belgium browning model 1932 belt gun?

Merry Christmas

Long time no see, mates. Due to busy work at the end of a year, sorry for the delay of updating the finished photos. First there are some replies I need to make.

To changmeedhud:

Thank you mate, please go ahead and save those pics. And it is a manual mill.

To butyduck:

Please check the replied messege, cheers.

To duc748:

There is no full plan, we just got some parts drawing from a book called LeeRoy Wisner's Handbook of Hard-to-find Gun Parts Drawings, and rest parts are manufactured by guess, Cheers.

To GUNHEEP:

Thank you for your comments, there is no info about FN 1932 or potato digger on that book.

And thanks for all the comments.

Project finalized, please enjoy the pics.

























The grips are made by ivory... of course artificial. Basically, until now, I can say the project is well-done. Thank you for all of your kind suggestion and comments.

Cheers
