Haven't posted in a long time but thought I would share a video with you guys. For a long time I used the file and ink method to true up the hammer hooks when doing a trigger job. And used stones and a fixture to bring the hooks down to .020". The video shows how I do them now. Just one set up on the mill and cut perfect every time.

Cutting the hooks on a mill is the only way to get them true and square.
