Adam Savage’s One Day Builds: Hellboy Samaritan Prop Barrel Rifling!

Adam has one final machining task to complete on his Hellboy Samaritan prop, and that’s adding the interior rifling details of the replica’s massive barrel. To accomplish that, Adam uses a custom tool called a broach, which needs to get precisedly pushed through the barrel with a tremendous amount of force to make its cut. Adam has an idea of how to achieve that, and it’s going to require quite a bit of elbow grease!

  1. I’m guessing that your shop doesnt have a hydraulic press? That would have been a much easier way to push out the broach.

  2. i have to say, i have never seen optimism like adam grabbing the electrical drill to pull the broach through that chunk of metal. 😀
