    How often should you break the chip when cutting threads? I have seen when cutting smaller threads it is recommended to back off the tap every half to one turn. Seems like it worked out for you, just curious if the difference in diameters is the cause or what. Awesome video though, just what I was looking for!

    Where is the runout coming from, the 3 jaw chuck or is the reamer bent? it will make the reamed hole larger than desired did you check afterwards to see how much?

    Hi there. Is any set available for Beretta shotguns choke tubes?

  4. Sebastian Tufigno on August 24, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    When you Tap the barrel after reaming; is the tread from the top to the end of the reamer; meaning.if I have choke tube with the tread at the top instead of the end and it had the same pitch size tread; will it srew up well in the barrel ?

    do we real need so many chokes in a gun? a full fixed choke in a hunting gun is enough to do all what other chokes can do as along as your shooting distance is well calculated. also not forgetting the use of the right kind of ammo for your hunt.

    great tutorial!

    What if I thread my 12 gauge fixed improved cyledner barrel for a choke without doing the reaming?

  14. Aaron Menchinger on August 24, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    What size tap and reamer is that?

  15. joe whiteman on August 24, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    in general how much to have this done to my shotgun?

  16. Kyle on August 24, 2022 at 8:52 pm

    Tried to contact Tru – Choke on several occasion to no avail, any suggestions or are they gone ?

    It’s important to note that you must either cut the barrel back to eliminate to the fixed chokes, or you must ream them out with a separate reamer. The only exception to this is a cylinder bore barrel (no choke).

    URL saved for a project!!! Thanks

  21. Phil Lowman on August 24, 2022 at 9:07 pm

    Do you have contact? Do you sell or rent these choke reamer / tap sets? I have a closet full of shotguns that I’d use often if I had interchangeable chokes for em.

  22. NoBs on August 24, 2022 at 9:08 pm

    So the barrel is fed by hand into the lathe ?? Not what I would have expected..

  23. Edward Porter on August 24, 2022 at 9:08 pm

    A lathe is great if you have one. I did 3 of mine with a hand drill, its slow but I took my time lots of cutting oil and it worked perfect. Ive done 5 others for buddys and no problems.

  24. Matthew Lacy on August 24, 2022 at 9:09 pm

    What is your rpm on your lathe while reaming?

  25. Keepingitreal98 on August 24, 2022 at 9:10 pm

    How much would you say a gunsmith charges to do this?

  26. Death Pig. on August 24, 2022 at 9:10 pm
