A few years ago when I was trying to absorb as much information about the 1911 as I could... I offered to put together a book based on Jerry's excellent photos, free of charge. The idea was that Jerry could provide me a detailed narrative of what he was doing, a comprehensive description of how he set the operation up, and what the ideal tolerances were he was trying to achieve. BTW, some of his photos do include a description. I tried and I tried but Jerry wouldn't take the bait since he didn't have the cycles for it. Unfortunately, I don't have the time anymore but maybe Jerry has more time now and someone else can take the baton.

Heck, I would be happy with a manuscript from BBBBill, Greg, Chuck, and others on this form. There is so much great info and experience with these guys!

Several years ago I began making notes from posts on 1911forum by the masters. My notebook isn't that thick yet but it's getting there. :D

Fitting a pair of Les Baer slides and frames which will be for "Bullseye" shooting. One will have iron sights for CMP matches the other a "red dot" scope for NRA style matches. I take a lot of time measuring pin hole locations, then map out the frame rails and slide. These sets required only a few thousandths removed on the rails of the frame and bottom of the slide. I use the mill for the bottom of the slide and the surface grinder for the frame rails and top. The final fit is just a little lapping to smooth out burrs after grinding and cutting. Takes about an 1.5 hours of measuring and jigging, but the result is a smooth tight fit.
