Excellent project you have here Iron Worker!
Glad to see these skills are still alive out there. What are your plans for case hardening? Gonna do it yourself or do you trust somebody after all those hours of machining?....

Heat treat will be no problem , it will go to same place that did my other two receivers already complete. American Metal Treatment ,they specialize in carburizing 8620 alloy and do it daily for 40 years.I have actually specified actual final case hardness desired both times they hit dead on what I asked.
even though their tolerance is +/- 2 HRC

Few pics roughing out the inside heel sides and 5 degree shelf .I have to get everything roughed out first as there are multiple specialty surfaces that come together hard to finish until everthing is close to size .










Thanks from Phil McGrath, CNelson and IH 1026

Machining the main part of the 5 degree bolt passage using radius tipped endmill .660 diameter set on 45 degree to passage duplicates the .400 radius. Just like the real m14.
