lyman front lock ring [PDF loaded]

As some of you know I took on the challenge of making front lock rings for some Lyman STS scopes. Quite a learning experience. One thing I did come to find out is that apparently they didn't make all their scopes the same. Seems that there are 2 different size Objectives on them. One about 1.450 or so and another about 1.6. For those interested I will be putting up a PDF on this subject in a day or 2 for those interested in how I made these lock rings.

Would be interested in seeing how you did it. Those little rings are a pain.

Thank you Chuck, now that I have, I think, everything figured out, they are not all that bad, just as long as you can set your lathe up to cut 48 threads to the inch. I will be working on the pdf Monday after another long session with the snow blower.

Here is the PDF hope you enjoy it. I had to make the pics a little smaller than I wanted to get it to fit, but it just fits now.

Thanks for sharing that Sam. I got one of the rings and your work is amazing. It fits like a glove.

Take care,
Ted

Here is a picture of the one Sam made for me.  It is the one with the flange in the middle.  Amazing work.
