Bezels & washers...............................................................................................................$ 8.00/pair
Double threaded 82 Deg inserts.............................................................................................$.8.00/pair
Take down set includes 1 pair each of Bezels, washers, inserts, screws, and alignment pins.................$17.00/Set
Countersink tool for 82Deg inserts (1/2" Shank)....................................................................... .$16.00/each
Donkey ILF inserts ........................................................................................................... .$33.00/pair
Shipping will run $3.00 to $6.00 depending on order

Thanks

Hi Mike

On my take downs I use a 5/16 Delrin key (blue thingy) instead of an alignment pin.
My theory is it gives me a lot more precise alignment and also makes it a cinch to profile the limbs into the riser.
I use the delrin because it is slick kind of like teflon and I had it on hand.

do you just use a router to cut the groove? Seems like a nice set up.

No, actually I don't even have a router, :) but I do have a Tool & Die shop so what I do is use a mill. ;)
When I do the limbs I lay out a center line and use a wiggler (a machinist tool) to pick up the line over about a 20" length then put the key in the limb.
When doing the riser I indicate it in with an indicator and then key it in the same set up I will put the brass inserts in.
Some people may say its cheating :o But I figure if I got it why not use it :twisted:
next time I do one I will take pictures.
If you had a very accurate setup you probably could do it with a router. I just never really thought about it.
Thanks
Jim

Hey Mann,

Do your threaded inserts have the same thread pattern as the Binghams ones do?

I am sending out the last 4 pair of the Donkey inserts that I have today.
It seems as though the orders have really slowed down and I was wondering if it was going to be worth running any more.
Any body have any plans to do any more ILF in the near future? To be honest I don't care one way or the other, but if we are done with it I will just let it go away.
I like the ILF but I am doing it in an all aluminum riser myself, so I don't personally use the inserts anyway.
Thanks

Are you going to be making and selling your risers?

I still have a couple pairs, but will definitely need more at some point.
