    HOkayyy, test video

    So I've "started" a Youtube channel..... this is the launch...... took me nearly a week just to get thru the tangled web of my own insufficiencies re computers.

    This is impromptu, this is me talking to the camera, testing lighting, sound etc

    Turns out I've made one major error in my planning.... I pump music thru my shop. I recorded hours of video with music in the background because this is how I live....

    I'm not allowed to do this.

    I didn't know.

    I HAVE learned a wee bit about filming techniques (nothing I'll ever show my kids, but good enough for me LOL)

    So now I've downloaded something called DaVinci Resolve, an editing program, and am trying to remove and replace the soundtracks with voice overlays etc.

    Editing S U C K S !!!!!!

    So, I'm throwing this up just to see if the private link works. I've not gone public...

    And I know that a large bloc of you don't care.

    But this is a test


    for ME



    testing....

    Al very good video I fully enjoyed watching it. I like your talk about using the Gordy (grizzly rod). As I have been using it for years and love the system.
    I use the weight as you and hold the very tip just like you. I put a small groove just forward of the very tip to help the rod rock freely.
    I look forward to seeing more of your Video. Hope you don't take to long to make more.

    You are off and running to a good start of figuring out how the new to you world of YouTube works out Al. With the lathe running I couldn't hear anything you were saying and I do realize it was just a test run to see how it works. I did subscribe to your channel and I am looking forward to coming back as I do appreciate what you are wanting to share and have also asked if you would.
    That brings me to a question if the only thing that is touching the inside of the bore is the pilot itself. Could not one make his own rod without it having to be ground perfectly round and straight as long it does not come in contact with the bore. Or am I missing something that I don't quite understand.

    Thank you and,

    Yes.

    Many folks I've spoken with go off on tangents about the Gordy rod "climbing the side of the bore" and "losing resolution" and "not measuring accurately, ie screwing up the resolution of the test indicator" and to these and other "that'll never work" sorts my rejoinder is simply........ "OK" ....... I have no agenda, no secret knowledge and most importantly no wish to get into a contest of wills with every banty rooster in the coop. Contesting of METHODS and INFORMATION is my goal, not fisticuffs.

    This is me


    These are my opinions


    My goals are simple, dissemination of information is key to the advancement of knowledge.


    And if some of us aren't willing and able to be The Bad Guys by trying new stuff, advancement dies. The vehicle slows to a halt.


    Basically, IMO if a straightened out coat hanger is inserted into a rolling hole and if said coathanger has a roller IN the hole and if the rotational motion can be translated to produce a repeatable vertical component..... then meaningful information can be gathered from this up-and-down motion.

    I use the Gordy rod also. I have a .22 and a .30 that I bought and I made another in .270. I just used a piece of drill rod and turned the end for a tight slip fit for the pilot bearing. Instead of using a weight, I put a slight bend in the rod and use it with the bend to the front. My indicator is in a tool holder on the tool post.

    Al,

    I am looking forward to see more videos. I am very new in this barreling journey, I am open to learning. My buddy Butch guided me through my first chambering job (a glued 30 BR VFS), and have been using his method since.

    When I acquired my machines in 2014 I bought the Grizzly rods, but never used them and have plenty of bushings. I plan to use them on my next project, thus the eagerness to see how you do it and learn from your methodology.

    I just had a friend call me and say "Hey, I heard you were asking around about editing techniques" ...... "there's a Youtube Channel that's all full of interviews and gun tests and reloading tricks and tests tests and cool stuff, I think the guy lives in your area and he's AWESOME and maybe you could learn from him and maybe he'd help and HE USES GORDY'S METHOD TOO!!!!"

    wow

    so I looked him up just this morning....

    My Stars!

    THIS is why I felt the need to start a channel..... dude "shows" using "Gordy's Method" in a friggin' 3_JAW!!!.... "yeahhh, I been threading since the 80's so this stuff is old hat to me, no real challenges, so nothing to see here we'll just gloss over the actual METHOD and the actual WORK and we'll talk some more about how AWESOME it all is....."

    HOleee KRRappp..... so MUCH heads-full-of-mush in thee world.....

    I still cannot wrap my head around how Gordie's method will straighten the bore for say 3".
