I did the work with a hand drill and a vise.  If you have a steady hand and take your time it’s quite easy. I believe Utah Bob had step by step instructions on how to do it. 


Best of luck

I did a DIY video.  But I worked at it harder than I really needed to. 





There are a couple of guys that are regular posters on The High Road black powder forum that do this work.  45 Dragoon and The Outlaw Kid. I've no personal experience with their work.
