I made a jig for turning Remington 700 bolt handles for installing tactical bolt handles. He is and example of a Badger bolt Knob installed.

Not trying to upstage Nat, or hijack the thread, but made one as well for the same use. You can see it
here, at the end of the slide show. Looking forward to see Nat's version. This one was a bit of a detail job to make, especially getting the bolt handle axis aligned correctly when milling the slots. I tend to make things overly complicated, so any ideas that are simpler to build would be much appreciated.

I faked it with the milling machine, bench grinder, files and a thread die. My favorite bolt handle is the straight one from PTG so I made the threads on this 700 bolt handle at right angles to the bolt body. The std 700 bolt handle sweep back is only about 1/2 the thickness of the bolt handle root so it works out fine.
One thing to watch out for; when grinding the thread relief at the top of the thread I got a little deep and there was a void in the bolt handle !! Now I am afraid that the threaded area will eventually break off.
