Earlier this week I toured a number of companies in the Portland, Oregon area and had the pleasure of seeing just how many cool and interesting products are made.
Here’s a photo I snapped at one company. Got any idea what it is?
I’ll tell ya.
It’s a machining jig used at Warne Scope Mounts. This particular one holds ten scope ring halves in exactly perfect orientation so that each can be shaped, finished, drilled and threaded in a single operation in one of Warne’s milling machines. As you can probably imagine, creating a perfect jig, where each ring half support is oriented correctly is quite an undertaking.
