Anyone know a smith to thread my barrel in Dayton Ohio area?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone knows of a smith or otherwise competent machinist who could thread my 5.45 for a 74 brake.  Pardon my ignorance.  If it cant be done with a hand-held power tool with a number of spinning attachments I don't have the capability or know how. I emailed Tom Cole? at cadiz a couple years back, around when they had the fire, and it probably wasn't the right time.  Anyone know of anyone else local dayton/columbus/cincy area?

What I did is fast and gets cheaper if you do more.


Get a metatal frome tubing cutter or Dremel rotary tool. Cut off 9/16 of muzzle cap.


From CSS get; 14x1 MM LH threadibd die, handle, and thread guide. Then U can sell threadiging set up or save for another job.


Clamp barrel in vice using 2 pcs. of 2x4 w/small V to clamp barrel.


You to You Tuble and watch how easy this is. Just remember to turn die CCW.
