I am going to mill the chips for my relabel set myself.

I am in need of some Paulson THC chips with inlays to practice on while I get everything adjusted properly.

20 chips should be more than enough. Looking for chips in good condition, no bike tires as those will be thinner than my chips.

I have the drill press and the bit arrived today. I will have the jig made soon. I would like some chips to experiment on before I have to use good chips.

Just wondered how your milling project was going? I have some chips and some bits for a planned relabel project as well. I need a drill press and have started on a jig setup. Thanks for any info you can share.

it is going well now. I have been spending about 10 minutes each night to mill a barrel. The hardest part was getting the jig centered and leveled just right. I burned through about 15 chips to get it set right.

I will post some pics soon.

Thanks, I just looked at one at HF 30 minutes ago. Looks like the head is secured to the vertical shaft with little allen set screws??

Some before and after weight comparisons. I’m not at all surprised by the results. The HS snappers are by far the easiest to mill. They have lined up the best and needed the least amount of extra work.

Also I knew the Mike’s were the heaviest of the chips, but damn!
