    Great project. Is there carbon in the steel to harden?

    Nice machine work. What was the "tee" shaped bar that looked like it was powering you cross-slide? Is that automated? Powered? How about some more info on it!

    I made some punches to make wads for 44 muzzle loaders. Those were made of drill rod and then hardened. Works nicely and I sold some. One thing to always remember is to have the opening widen out not far behind the cutting edge so your wads fall out, don't jam in there.
