My name is Justin. Some of you may know me by jwh02017. I developed this website to show gun enthusiast the different types of firearms that can be manufactured using CNC (Computerized Numerical Control) equipment. I am fortunate to have access to all kinds of CNC machines. I am a mechanical engineer, and work for
our family's machine shop. Much of our work is for the aerospace industry, so quality is an
utmost importance. I have carried this same quality of work to my gun hobby. I have worked as a machinist for several years now,
but I don't consider myself a
I am learning more about the gunsmithing trade with every project. I started this gun hobby
in the summer of 2002, after I was looking for some mods for my
AR-15 that I bought earlier that
summer. That was the first
AR-15 that I had ever shot or
owned. I've always been into
guns, but it really got kick started
into a hobby after this first AR-15
that I bought.
During my searching, I stumbled across the Roderus Custom Gunworks website. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the very impressive work that Pvt.Ryan had done. I then became a member of his forum where I had a wealth of information at my finger tips. I hadn't seen anybody use CNC machines to make their own firearms, so I thought it would be cool to show people what can be done with CNC equipment.
For the majority of the projects you
see on the website I use a Fanuc
Robodrill Model T21iFL. The
machine specifications are as
follows: 13hp 10,000 RPM spindle;
700mm X axis by 400mm Y axis table
travel; 330mm Z axis travel; 21
station tool changer; 550lb table
capacity; 1.6 second tool change
(chip to chip) and over 2100 IPM
rapid traverse on all axis.
The Fanuc Robodrill is designed for
high speed production combined with
extreme accuracy. This hobby has become very addictive and I've done several projects since the first AR-15 lower receiver that I machined.
I hope my website will help you get
started in this hobby, if it's not
your hobby. I share
all my information for free, and I
hope you will do the same to help
keep the gun community strong. All information contained in this website is for educational purposes only.
