About the Author

Cliff LaBounty is the retired owner of LaBounty Precision Reboring, Inc. After selling the business to Jim Dubell of Clearwater Reboring in 2005, he decided that he should take a few weeks to write a book about rifling. The result is Rifling Machines and Methods.  After the few weeks turned into six years of false starts, it is done. Prior to spending close to thirty years in the reboring and rerifling business, he taught Industrial Arts in Seattle, and Mukilteo, Washington. (He characterizes it as “I was a shop teacher, plain and simple.  Industrial Arts and Industrial Technology are fancier names for… shop teacher.)  He also spent a number of years as a machinist and millwright. He built six rifling machines over that thirty year period, one hand operated, two hydraulic and three CNC. He currently works as a consultant to start-up rifling companies.

Cliff and his wife Dolores, and current dog, Tazzie, live in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains in N.W. Washington.
