Gun Screws Unlimited; With Drill Press & Dies You Can Make Most Gun Screws
All that is needed is a die with the right threads to make a vast variety of gun screws simply and immediately! You will also need a file, and either a drill press or a pin vise. You can give them any thread length, any overall length and any head thickness desired. Blanks are made of easy-to-thread, tough, forging steel. If hard wearing surface is desired after threading, screws should be treated in Brownells Surface Hardening Compound (#083-000-033).
