Always a good idea to have extras.
I sold over 60 bolt sets , many with extras.

We sure never seen that many completed guns here on the forum.     Makes one think there are a lot of those bolt sets collecting dust out there.

Yes Sir, I believe you are correct.
Many unfinished Gatling guns.

“How many sets of Bolts are wanted ?
Lets get a count over the next 3 to 4 weeks.”
 
Just keeping this active again. 
 About 80 bolts so far.

This is what we have so far.
bluedog = 20
gbull = 35
maccrazy2 = 30
Cutter = 25
 
I’m thinking run 10% over for setup and loss
making it 121. Maybe we can make it with 3 - 12' bars getting 117
Any more wanted or someone want to change their quantity ?

Quantity looks good. Are we looking at just the turning?

That depends on what each individual this four member group wants
to contribute to the project.
We need material, lathe work, mill work for the bolt body. Plus caps.
If we want finished bolts, then , hammer shafts & springs, firing pins,
extractors with springs, and a little more mill work.
 
I could do the mill work on my CNC, but I’m open for suggestions.
Lets see what we come up with

I would take 11 of them if they are complete with the extractors, firing pins etc.

No Mike, you didn’t miss it.
No cost has been posted.
The material for the one piece bolt blank, caps, springs, firing pins, and screws,
maybe 10 bucks each max.
Hopefully we can all share the time , somewhat equally

I see a logistics problem developing here.
Maybe everyone involved should buy their own 3/4” diameter 303 stainless,
and do the preliminary lathe work.
Here’s a sketch for the lathe operation  
 
Comments ????
 
 
I will do the CNC operation for 50% of the quantity you want.
Want 10, send 15
The CNC operation consist of the radius & flats, cutting the follower,
holes and slots for extractor and firing pin

I have a rfq out for the turning. I was gonna use the drawings that were further up on this page. The lathe sketch you just posted is a lot simpler. I take it you will mill the .500 Dia. when you cut the follower. That should make the price better. The logistics of a group endeavor is a little complicated. If the quote seems reasonable I think I would order what we need at that time. I would be willing to sell at cost plus shipping, or trade for the mill work. Cutter, I know you have the milling op tooled and programmed it would be a good fit for me to work out a trade if you want for that. The quote would include material.

Great,
Let’s wait for the quote and go from there.
 
and yes on the .500 dia

Cutter, there is a third turned piece that strikes the firing pin. I seem to recall you eliminated the funky flathead screw. Do you have a sketch of it? I might as well get a quote on that too while I’m at it.
