Some of us are the people they test "fool-proof" stuff on. And, when I comes to things screwed onto the end of a firearm, I prefer not to be the test fool...Simple cone is easy to clamp in a vise and drill from the back side. I wouldn’t think you’d need a jig for that one
They seperate, try harder. I can see the pins that the top piece slides onto in your pics. Those 2 bigger holes are what bolt.the top to.the bottom...@padom
So I'm watching the video on the website for the 22 drill fixture and he mentions the fixture is two pieces. I'm looking at mine and it is only one piece. There is a line scored around the entire fixture but it is superficial and the halves don't separate. Did they change the design? I can't see the back side of his fixture in the video to see if it looks like mine would.

You put the cups in the right way, like in the video?Got them separated but it took quite a bit of force. These titanium cups are crazy hard to drill. Lubed well, tried slow...fast...took over five minutes to do the first cup and my drill bit snapped on the second.
That’s really rolling up a burr on the top side for it being a new bit. That leads me to believe you might be running it too fast or not enough lube. If you get the bits hot, they dull a lot faster
I'm thinking I got a bad bit. The new one came today and it is working way better than the bit that broke.That’s really rolling up a burr on the top side for it being a new bit.

You want to make sure you don’t heat up the Ti. Push firm and get metal removal. If you have lube and a sturdy machine keep going. If you have a drill press or hand drill just peck it repeatedly. If you have the bit touching and not cutting you are making things hard on yourself. It’s easy to go light on pressure and scrape the bit on the surface which dulls the bit and heats/hardens the Ti.I'm thinking I got a bad bit.

Finally received the stamp for the 223/308 trap. Got back from two weeks in China and within 3 hours from getting off a 19 hour flight I had the baffles and end cap drilled. I was very excited. I wish I had weighed it after drilling because it feels way better now. I will try and bring it into work this week to do so.I can't remember if you said that you received your stamp yet, but I am really looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this after you have it drilled and have some rounds down range. This is obviously not a good candidate for hunting, but it would probably work just fine for a bench rifle.
It is an Advantage arms conversion. https://www.advantagearms.com/What .22 kit is that?
