    Trigger Guard engraving: How to....

    I sawed out a tracing of the trigger guard on a piece of pine, melted some hot glue to the area I wanted the bow of the trigger guard to rest on, then lightly heated the trigger guard and placed it in the bock. It worked like a charm.

    Trigger Guard engraving: How to....

    I want to do some engraving and gold inlay on a Fox Sterlingworth trigger guard and need some advice on how to hold it in my vice. I know it must be a solid hold for inlaying. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Question: Mix and match

    The military doest deal in biologacal field work. The military deals in delivering death to it's enemy's, and it doesn't want there to be any problems with misidentified dates, thus Day, Month Year. (KISS) ;~)

    Question: Inscribed Model 1886 Winchester

    I also noticed upon further observation that the bottom of the letters H, P and R are radiused rather than square as they would be with a liner. That would indicate a pantograph tool.

    Question: Inscribed Model 1886 Winchester

    Allan, I was very friendley with Jack Devitt. He showed me a lot of little tricks. One hell of an engraver. I sure miss him. His son Pat now works on Jewlers row doing lettering, taught by his dad. Where are you presently located? ( jtowarn4727@gmail.com )

    Question: Inscribed Model 1886 Winchester

    I have to wonder why the engraver used scribe lines. A good friend of mine was a master letter engraver on Philly's jeweler's row. I've watched him engrave lettering on many types of metal objects and he always used Chinese white and a pencil to do the layout rather than scribe. He was 85 when...

    Question: Inscribed Model 1886 Winchester

    "the Winchester records indicate that 50 rifles were so inscribed in a single shipment." If it was John Ulrich who did the engraving on 50 such rifles, he must have been bored to death after cutting the first half dozen. ;~)

    So I'll ask those who may know: Do loading gates on SA pistols need to be hardened? What difference would it make if they were annealed?
