Having been certified by Annette as being dain brammaged, I feel justified in proving it. I just purchased full blueprints for the Sharps cartridge gun and I am about to provide our recycling center with tons of swarf and broken tungsten carbide milling bits. I have very bad equipment...my drill-mill needs bearings and my lathe needs someone who know how to use it.

Nevertheless, I am about to begin. This is a "commitment" post. If I do not begin, I will not finish. Knowing what I want to end up with and what I probably will actually produce does discourage me but, I'll give it a shot because I find the Sharps to be beautiful. I will approach the "build" with humor (what choice do I have?) so making fun of my inept scratching will only serve to temper my resolve.

Any, any, advice will be greatly appreciated as I wonder through this example of my having entered my second childhood...now, what do I do first...oh, yes, take my pills.

Replace your mill bearings?  And be very careful around your lathe.

I think you may mean "1874" Sharps. Sharps manufacturing stopped in 1881.

I say go ahead, I'm at the refinishing stage with my 74, but I went with 110 instead of 120, I went with the 30" brass scope, so I have a vernier flip up sight if you could use it when you get to that stage.

I sure appreciate the offer and I'll be in touch "when I get to that..er..stage?" I am old and slow and just hope the slow doesn't get caught by the old....
