I have one of those Harbor Freight wrenches and the wheeler barrel vise. I cross threaded one of the bolts and nut when trying to align the witness marks on a NOS barrel. Shows you how much torque you can apply with this setup. The barrel kept turning and I kept tightening the hold down nuts.

I had trouble getting my barrel to stay tight,so my cure was adding a piece of flat lead sheeting(the old roofing stuff) to my barrel vise,and it then stayed tight.After I was done,the lead just wiped off...and I got my daily allowence of lead

By chance is it a 6 groove barrel? That would really bring tears.

Hi Prince Humperdink,

I feel your pain!

Both barrels on my two recovered rifles were like new, except for the welded rod & torch cut!
At least "WE" got to save a few from the scrap heap!

Mine had a nice barrel also, don't have any gauges, so I just used a 30.06. Mine was a Smith Corona barrel.

mine is dated 12-42
