HELLO and welcome to my Website. As a mostly self-taught "shade-tree machinist" most of what I relate to you is from my experience and lessons learned as a result of my own mistakes. I have been wrong on numerous occasions and will be wrong again. I do not claim to know it all but this is what works for me, and I am pleased to share whatever I can with fellow 1911 enthusiasts. I have learned much from others and it is my debt to them to share with you what I have gleaned. This knowledge this is like eating : You consume , select, absorb and cast off what is not needed. Please be patient, tolerant, and keep an open mind, and maybe something I have to offer will be worthwhile. I am not much of a writer but I will attempt to write these articles at a very basic level, kind of like a Idiots guide to 1911smithing. Most of my articles will reference the tools I am using and the part no. as available from Brownells gunsmith supply, they can be reached at
