Woodshed November 2021

The Old Woodshed

Last fall, Tammy and I drug our old woodshed up from the woods, and I am reusing it to make my dedicated grinder building, the old horse shed where we had the grinders was low, and prone to spring thaw water and slight flooding.
An ongoing project, this will include a small furnace, it will be high and dry up on Timbers, and the grinders etc. will not be prone to rust.
My plans include a strip and paint of my old Delta Surface Grinder made in the 1950's and the addition of a Dust Collector.
Then, as my old railroad friend used to say.... We'll Be A Cooking With Gas!

Update June 2022 ~ The Grinder Building

The old Woodshed is set in place, I reclaimed an old door, and Tammy gave her a new coat of paint.
The stained black siding around the door is solid Cherry, Dad and I sawed on his mill over 40 years ago.
My next door neighors Nick and Stacey own the property the mill used to set on, and gave me one of the old doors so I could reclaim the lumber, I am quite happy with it because I think of Dad everytime I see it. Tammy got me a metal Liberty or Death logo sign for it, and I will start working on the inside in the fall.

Ruger American Bolt Shims

Ruger American Rimfire Rifle Bolt Shims

RAR Bolt Shim

How does a Rimfire Bolt Shim work? The actual head space is in the recessed face of the bolt. Shimming between the two bolt halves ensures the bolt is up snug against the breech. If the bolt has excessive clearance at the breech it tends to cause misfires and light strikes. When the bolt action rifle’s bolt locking surfaces become worn increases in the headspace can cause light firing pin strikes, poor ignition (misfires), looseness of the bolt, and loss of accuracy.
Factory fitting of the barrel into the receiver can also leave excess clearance between the bolt and breech. Excessive headspace causes the bolt to feel loose.
Shims can also Used for Adjusting after Re-Barreling
If you are getting misfires and light strikes shimming the bolt may be a good way to solve it.

Lithgow LA101 Crossover Bolt Shims

LA101’s action is its rear-locking design, featuring three hardened lugs. This design makes for an incredibly smooth-feeding rifle, a shorter bolt throw and a safer and more reliable firearm.

How does a Rimfire Bolt Shim work? The actual head space is in the recessed face of the bolt. Shimming between the two bolt halves ensures the bolt is up snug against the breech. If the bolt has excessive clearance at the breech it can to cause misfires and light strikes, or simply inconsistent accuracy. When a Production Rifle is assembled, a bit of extra room or excess tolerance can be left, and this slight variable can affect accuracy. When the bolt action rifle’s bolt locking surfaces become worn increases in the headspace can cause light firing pin strikes, poor ignition (misfires), looseness of the bolt, and loss of accuracy.

Factory fitting of the barrel into the receiver can also leave excess clearance between the bolt and breech. Shims can also used for adjusting after Re-Barreling If you are getting misfires and light strikes shimming the bolt may be a good way to solve it.

Good Morning Lance, I received my order yesterday. Made the install right away for my 1962 Ruger single six that I had to fit a mag cylinder into that had too much end play. With the shims in .001 increments was able to achieve perfect end play. Excellent results. Thank you for such a great product. I will be back for future needs. Have a GREAT day! ~ Ron in CA

Perfect Shim to Perfect my Charter Arms Pitbull
Mr. Shively, The shim packs that I ordered last week for my Charter Arms Pitbull 9mm revolver arrived on time. Thanks to your tutorial videos, I installed a pair to smooth the hammer action and one to tighten up (with a small dab of gun grease) the cylinder crane to my satisfaction. From this day forward I’ll recommend Trigger Shims products to those in need of ‘tuning’ their pistols. My appreciation, J. in Va
