barrel vise????

Postby fxrcleve » Fri Sep 02, 2011 8:32 pm

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.

I found advise to buy "Rosin"( from the sporting goods store used by pitchers)and it did the trick.

Also went to a 3/4" hole with a holesaw and split the block in the middle of that hole instead of the v-notch. That could have been the issue as well.

Those rubber jar lid trippers, wrapped around the barren, can help too.
