I don't get any pictures after the first page of this thread, I just get an empty box with a little glyph in the upper lefthand corner, even left clicking to open image in new tab just brings up page not available.

Is there any easy fix for this issue as I was looking forward to watching this project progress

  They all work on my computers/phone..  Maybe it is a location thing, from your country being blocked, can you try a web proxy for now?  https://www.google.com/#q=online+proxy   Either way, I will upload to a different site from now on.  I was using pasteboard.co

Thanks Yay, I can see all the pictures apart from the very last one using hidemyass proxy. It is the first time I have had pictures on here blocked, which is strange.

The project is looking really sweet I've been hoping someone would build a lever action rifle for a while, do you have blueprints for it or are you building it all "off the cuff"?

  I've made so many deviations from my original plans, that they no longer really apply.

  Wish I thought of this wire+magnet thing years sooner.  Everyone with a mill should have one,  I can even go around corners for undercuts.

  Was messing with feeding all day and ended up having that little follower tongue flip almost upside down and jam up.  to prevent this, its motion is now limited by a pin.

  It feeds fine  when held normally, but upside down/spinning it throws the shell right to the ground...  So I might completely redo the insides today. Thinking I can make the feed tongue stationary, since I only made it pivot to copy Browning's designs which were meant for much longer cartridges anyways., and in making it stationary I'm now kicking myself for making those deep cuts on either side of the bolt face, as it will take up less room without a pivot.

  Any ideas as far as finish?  This engine paint I usually use is terrible.  I might coat it with thinned 5minute epoxy to stop it from rubbing off.  The small parts, I've been hot dipping in used motor oil, but the reciever/barrel assembly is too large to heat without starting a campfire or something and the risk of melting my solder.  I could remove the engine paint and mix some epoxy/thinner/blackpaint together and use that.  Without buying any supplies.. one day I need to learn how to do real blueing.. oh and I forgot I have several cans of clear spray paint, but it is only slightly more useable.  Anything that comes out of a rattle can seems to transfer from the gun into the white latex covering my walls, when I lean them against them to take a picture or w.e. and wear off crazy fast.

  I tried a cut stock/mares leg and a terminator 2/1887 shaped grip, but everything keeps bothering me. it might end up as an inlayed pirate grip, as they have about the same curves


EDIT~
YES it has now come to my attention that if i make the riser not pivot. the left side hole doesn't need to be used. Which has been bothering me all night, but no worries BECAUSE it will fit a saddle loop!

I have used cold blue from a bottle with good results. Even over large areas and welds.

Used to have a Bannerman-Spencer. Sold it over a woman, should've kept it.

  Doesn't cold blue invite rust?  I'm looking for something a uniform color over steel, silver, and brass from where I may choose to use brazing instead of arc welds, will cold blue?

Hot and cold blue are controlled rust. It can turn to red rust if not cared for. Silver solder and braze would need to be hidden under the joint to look good. Brass is a good accent polished or aged, why cover it?
That said, just saw an article about "Durablue" Duracoat spray on bluing

Ceracoat over 3 different materials, I would think.

  I don't feel comfortable taking home-made firearms to a ceracoating specialist, plus losing the opportunity to strip and repaint something, in the sadly.. likely event a modification becomes necessary as even I make mistakes.

  I seem to have underestimated the importance that the left feed arm shifts slightly inwards to squeeze the cartridge.

I can do it one handed... but i put a hole through my guitar like 30seconds before while taking this video when it slipped.. and its all on tape  because it is so light weight the acceleration of the mass of the lever can't surpass the receiver without using more downwards force than I am currently comfortable with.
