Need two surfaces machined on a old bolt action

I have an old mauser I'm barreling. I need the front of the receiver trued. It needs .001" to true it, another couple to make it pretty. Then the barrel needs the tenon cut to match. I have a fixture to hold the receiver. It is case hardened, the barrel is chrome moly.

I see that this interests no one. Would anyone be interested in renting me time on their machine? I have my own lathe cutting tools, measuring tools, and holding fixture. I think it is 1/2 hour work for someone competent, probably take me 2 hours. I just need a lathe.

I'm not sure it was clear you had a job you were asking for help on Mark. There are some shooting enthusiasts on here. Give em a chance. Guys?


Some pictures go a long way....

Thanks for the direction.

The outer ring needs to be concentric to the inner surface (primary torque shoulder). I have lapped the primary torque shoulder ( not shown in picture) and measured from the outer ring. It has approximately .001" variation. My primary goal is just create a parallel surface. The new barrel seated has a 11-12 thou space between this outer ring and the one set on the barrel. So the second surface is the surface from the new barrel that seats on the primary torque surface on the receiver. I need the barrel to crush on the inner surface and just touch the outer.

The chamber is precut 0.050" short. I have a finish reamer and can set headspace by hand once the barrel is installed.

Hey Eddie,
It was great to meet you yesterday. I learned a lot, and thank you for the help. I'll bring it by when I finish it.
Cheers,

Hi mark it was fun hanging out and chatting with you too. If you need anything else machined or know anyone that needs something done let them know about me.
