    Where did you find a hand-operated press? :D

    Can't run a hydraulic one in my apartment garage. :(

    Good Job...new jig looks like it works very nice. AK-builder flats are very nice.

    Hope to see the video for your spot welding and riviting.
    (I will buy lunch/drinks if I can come up and use the welder/rivit jig)


    Map gas to the tip of ejector rail and the hammer/trigger holes

    Nice work!

    I need to get together with you and bend another one. I ruined the one we bent by drilling the rivet holes out of alignment.

    Again, nice job on the video. I hope you get a chance to demonstrate some of the other building procedures, on the You Tube...

    Here is the reciever after I riveted the trunions. It was perfect before I started drilling holes in it...I think I'll just get another flat, with the holes allready drilled, and start over.....

    Does your press twist any? I got one via Amazon (I think it's a Grizzly) and it twists when I use it like nothing else. I'm going to have a friend weld it together once I get it all squared up again.
