    When I started Chambers Custom in June of 2010 I managed to scrape together enough money to buy a small lathe and a lightly used Webb 3VH mill. The Beast, as I call it, is just that, a BEAST. It is a huge mill that is capable of doing more than I could ever think of doing. But alas, it has become a busy machine.

    The past couple of years have seen some interesting times here at the shop. From adding Brandon and Eric to now David. And of course having Heidi and Tadd in the shop to always look after me is a great blessing.

    So, with all the great exciting things going on here it was time for me to expand a little bit. I don't take these steps lightly, nor do I take them without much prayer and thought. But the fact became, I don't get much mill time these days because the guys are always on the machines. That all changed today...

    Please join me in welcoming Lil Webb, my new personal mill. It is a brand spanking new Webb 2VH with new everything. In the coming days I'll add the exciting new touch screen DRO, vise, leveling feet, VFD, collets, and cutters and be back in the saddle again doing my own builds full time! And I couldn't be more excited.

    First allow me to give thanks to my friend Matt for loaning me his loader and experience getting heavy stuff off a semi. Brother, I would have definitely dropped it and probably injured myself trying to do this without you.

    Thank you to Toby and the great folks at Table Rock Bank for believing in our dream with us. We truly wouldn't be where we are today without your help and guidance.

    Also a HUGE thanks to Eric and David for making sure I didn't kill myself and helping tear apart, clean and put back together the shop before and after helping me get the new machine in place. I couldn't have done this without you brothers. But no, you still can't use Lil Webb.

    A sincere thank you to all of my client friends, for without you, this dream wouldn't exist. You are the reason we build. You are the reason we press forward every day to create the finest pistols we can produce regardless of the time and energy involved.

    And of course a big thank you to Heidi and my folks (wish you could see this momma) who have been a constant source of encouragement and love as we have grown and expanded Chambers Custom and this dream we have to build "Obsessibly Reliable, Accurate and Beautiful Pistols".

    Outstanding! and I have a Joe Chambers rookie card ( it’s no Honus Wagner but what the heck, Honus is no Joe Chambers!)
    Brother I shot my CCP 22 today and that beast is as accurate as ever and the Para you worked on years ago. 15 round mag, 15 yards one medium sized hole!
    Owning a Chambers Custom,
    Feel the MoJoe!!
    Congrats to all at Chambers Custom!!

    Running the power tomorrow or Saturday it looks like.

    Running the FMX Tough Drive for 5hp max for the VFD.

    Running the three axis EL700 with magnetic scales from DROPROS for the readouts.

    HA! Not from me! I wish I had some in the safe to sell but every time we think we'll put some away people snap them up so, reckon that's good too.

    Beautiful new mill Joe! Webb makes good stuff. The ones I'm more familiar with are a bit antiquated compared to this sexy beast.

    Congratulations to Chambers Custom Pistols!!!! You've worked hard and deserve all the expansion. And "lot of prayer and thought" is exactly the correct way to be a good steward. Without trying to steer this toward faith, because you do it properly, you've been blessed. Again congratulations and continued health and blessings.
