    Default DIY Slug-o-Tron: barrel slugging machine, now portable!

    I posted the first version of the slug-o-tron build in another place, I don't want to repeat the theory and other crap. I do want to repeat a great thank you to NES members who helped me out: RKG, 50BMG, Slowdive, DneproMike and EddieCoyle! Many thanks!


    Ok, so here is a portable version of the slug-o-tron: it slugs your barrel in 15 sec and records how much tension it encountered during pulling of the slug. The latter may be indicative of some bore qualities, but х.з.


    first thing, we grab some vodka, some c-channel and whatever pieces of scrap we got lying around. Make this and color it Obama banner red.




    Of course it was too cold outside and paint wasn't drying, may be need to pay more taxes. So I baked it, it becomes darker. The middle of the platform and the bottom of the sled is sanded down from paint. Those parts will glide on each other.




    Also on bottom, I make the third leg so that platform does not keel over:




    Platform and sled are attached to each other using a bronze bearing in the middle. It makes things smoother:




    and then grease them up lightly




    This is how slug-o-tron will look:




    At the back we attach load cell:




    and some boring electronic crap:




    where barrel goes, you can use a bronze insert or a custom made piece, like I did:




    here it is inserted at the front:




    stick cable through and you are ready to go:




    I wrote a quick program to capture data and present it in blue color:




    Also, here is a faggy box to store slugs:




    The whole thing fits




    We are ready to travel:

    I want to track you down and have a beer or 12 with you. The conversation would be worth whatever it costs.
