Response to Posts about machinists getting good accuracy from worn machines.............
Did you start with a large socket head cap screw and turn off the threads to form the shoulder? Seems like some of those cap screws are hardened, so were you able to do this with HSS tools or by grinding? Also, I assume the nut has a hex on one side and a threaded hole on the other. How deep did your thread the hole?
The reason I ask, is that I have a Remington Genesis that is in need of this EXACT upgrade!
