Wise Lite arms cam section tutorial

Postby Pirate » Tue Mar 20, 2007 7:09 am

The tutorial for the Wise Lite cam sections is finished.. There is a link to a free .dfx reader, download and install it then save the templates and you will be able to print them to scale.

there is machine work required, I am working on a set of templates you can download for some of it. I will be getting a shroud from Wise lite and some information on mating the parts. I will post it all in the tutorial.
I will also be doing one for the bbl shroud bushing.

I have attached a copy of the ejection port template, can a few of you download and print it and see if it comes out to scale?
thanks

I have not been able to print it to scale. I tried doing this two differant ways. But I think the info is clear and could be easily be mocked up on the part to scale with the specs you have provided.

Thanks,

I agree-I couldn,t get it to come out,but I am not too proficient with the computer.So I just used the measurements,added a radius,and made a paper template.Tried it on several receivers-worked fine!. ---bil

Hi Pirate:

To print to size on everybody's printers, it needs to be a .pdf file. If your drafting program will "output" .pdf's then you can do it. If not....I can have a try with my program. Send me a .dxf or .dwg file and I'll see what I can do.

I just updated the cam section page on my site, I can't attach the dfx file format here. There is a ling to the reader and a link to the drawing, click on the link, save the fie, download the virewere and it should print to scale. I will have the rest of the templates posted in a couple of days if it works.
