I'm swapping barrels on a 110 savage, already bought the ER SHAW kit. I thought I researched enough in advance. But the vise I made(2 pcs of hardwood with a v notch placed in my vise and sandwiched around the barrel ) will not keep it from the barrel from spinning when I try to break the barrel nut loose. (Tried a bench vise and a shop press.)
Is there a better way to design the surface of the wood that touches the barrel? I am thinking trying a hole saw tomorrow then splitting the wood in the middle of the hole.
I saw somewhere that brown sugar would help but it didn't.
I'm not opposed to buying a something moderately priced if needed. Though I am aware ER Shaw will do it for free if I ship it to them which is awesome. But 1/2 the fun is doing something is doing it yourself.
Any advise would be appreciated.
