Weight Loss
« on: October 08, 2017, 06:23:07 AM »
Does any one know how much weight (approximately), each of the following will result in?

1.  Sound Slot
2.  Flange sightline
3.  Re-milling the face

I'm pretty sure it's not going to be helpful, but I suspect that the answer would be "How much weight do you want to take off?"
Or in the case of the sight line, "how much do you want to take off or add on?" (since you could add a weld bead for a sight line, or add a tungsten/lead/gold inlay)

But I'd say that in general...
For a sound slot you'd be looking at probably 5 grams but could be higher, depending on width.
For re-milling the face, it depends on how much material is shifted (how dinged up the face is).
For a sightline...depends on what you want. Probably closer to nothing than anything significant.
