this is why barrels are so expensive

Didn't watch the whole video but that is just the riifling process. Chambering and profiling are two more steps and then there is threading !

AND drilling the bore out to begin with.   I saw a "cookie" once cut from a huge battleship barrel, it was probally an inch thick and you could see the whole profile, makes you appreciate the work and skill that goes into a weapon.

Long sleeves generally not a good idea around manuals, at least button the cuffs, and that lead screw is pretty far down out of the way. That old machine looks to be in excellent shape, I am positive it has had a rebuild, if that thing was built today OSHA would make them cover damn near everything with guards!
