Breech Block Handles
I am glad that I had no visitors to my workshop in the past 2 days.
The language in the workshop has been a touch foul.
Because I have been making handles for the previously made bronze breech blocks.
The handles are very small, very exacting, and difficult. In a word, I struggled.

I was not enthusiastic about this job. I had a feeling that it would be a bugger. And so it was.
So why all of the bad language?
Well, I needed 2 of these, so 4 handles. I made 2 spare.
I dropped one. Could not find it, despite hours of searching, including using a fibre optic 5mm diameter device to look under the milling machine and sweeping the floor. (no snakes in this cold weather. I hope). But no luck, so I made another.
Another handle jammed in the Dremel drill. I hear it hit the tin wall 7 meters away. I did look for a minute or 2, then succumbed to common sense and made another. The language really was foul.
Anyway. You have seen the final result. not too bad. Another bit of brass bling.
