I made a set of blanks a couple years ago. Still sitting here and now I have no idea what kit they go to.

These are the measurements: Top barrel/cap is 1.987" with an ISD of .5285 and the bottom barrel/body is 2.253" with an ISD of .403...

I have inputed these measurements in IAP app and met with negative results....anyone out there can help me identify the kit these belong to?

I know not the Gent or Stateman because bushings too big.

Also not the Gent II

My point here is why would you make a set of blanks for a kit you do not have bushings for??? That does not make sense. I know you make blanks to sell, were these for a client or yourself?? If a client maybe you have the order paper and on it is the kit name. If for yourself would you not have bought the kit with the bushings if you planned on turning for yourself?? Unless you had the bushings already and just bought extra tubes or kits. I have over 1000 kits and have bushings for everyone.

I am sure you store your bushings in some sort of reference order so start there and check all the bushings you have that are for a 2 piece kit. Again I maybe missing something and it makes no sense to have tubes and make blanks for a kit without the proper bushings unless it is for a client and then I can understand it. This is all I am saying. I do not believe there is any chart that gives inside tube dimensions.

The bushing dimensions in the chart will be very close to the tubing ID, slightly smaller than the tube.

Dan I understand that part but today there are so many kits that can have just a fraction of a mm off that dimension and it is a whole different kit.

If she looks at all the different kits she has ( I assume she has some sort of order) that is the best place to start than starting at a list that is huge. I again assume for every kit she own she has a set of bushings to go with them. The only factor not accounted for is if someone requested a certain set of blanks made for a kit she does not make herself and had to have them send her the tubes or she purchased them specifically for that purpose. That is where I would start. That list is daunting to say the least and continues to grow.

Maybe I am assuming too much and you know what they say about that.

I have been in the same position before and this is how I solved it. Just trying to help.
