night- latching is a time saver on the line. I have witnessed my partner, using this method, not only does it "click", but there is no need to view, weather yer pan is leavel.

savin time, John

JLord, clamp a vice grip on the pan notch for a guide where you want to nightlatch. About 5 or 6 strokes with a file,hit it on a wire wheel and your done. I tried the dremmel, it works, but you still have to straighten it up with a file. You tend to go too deep, then have to shorten it up and straighten it out, so to me there is no benefit.

Tried the dremel method myself. Figured it would take a whole lot less elbow grease to do the night latching. Problem was it very easy to take to much off the pan and wound up doing extra filing to fix the mistake. eeerrrrr!!! I found using a larger file to start the notch and a smaller one to touch it up, doesn't take much effort at all.

If you are going to use a cutoff wheel in the Dremel,always get the ones that are reinforced with fiber.They don't tend to fly apart like the regular ones always do.And always wear safety glasses.I've been hit in the face and glasses with pieces of those regular cutoff wheels and they are going at incredible speed.A variable speed Dremel would be good to so you could get it down to a speed you could control.

Cletis, that style of file is called a blind file. They are used a lot by gunsmiths, and other folks have uses for them also. You don't have to make a blind file. They are for sale in most hardware stores.
Adios,

I use the edge of a belt sander. remove the pan and touch to the edge of the sanding belt. real quick and it's nice and square.

Thanks 45/70 I have always got a lot of satisfaction of using my hands, made a blind triangular file to make dovetail slots in muzzleloader barrels for front and rear sights as well as underlugs to hold barrel to stock. I quess frugal is my middle name, LOL
