    Default Inherited tools

    I got two tools with my kit i purchased. I have not been able to find them on any website. I was hoping someone could shed some light on exactly what are the uses of the tools. The block of steel is machined precise. It's measurements are 5'' long,1 1/4'' high, 1/2'' thick. The other is a punch. I have been told a hand (hammer) punch would not do me much good. It looks to me that these are "hand tools" of some type. Any help is apreciated!

    these are rivet formers.

    this thread deals with their use. The bucking bars may not fit however.

    The AGI kit used an air hammer. I actually built one this way, before Plinker's jig came out. That's been a while back!!!

    No idea on the AGI connection. That big one may be a bucking bar from one of the normal places where you get aircraft and/or RV repair tools. They are normally smooth-sides, and it looks like someone machined it for special purposes.

    I didn't use them. I built my first ak with a modified air chisel and from there I went to the bolt cutters. I just remembered seeing the add in sgn and thinking there's no way those parts were worth that much. They have a video for the tools if you're going to use them. I've bought their M1 garand and Fal videos and have been pleased with them. If it was me I'd sell the agi stuff and get a plinkers jig and or a set of bolt cutters to modify. There has been a lot of improvments on how to build an ak since the agi tools were first put on the market.

    hey moleman
    thanks for that link!
    i was checking it out and the bucking bar is not available for sale to ny residents?
    i dont get it -checked the laws and it should be ok
    i know the city has different regs then the rest of the state
    but then i understand the fact of not selling to a state cause of stupid politics like the ammo laws in kali
    sure does make it harder for the guys who want to go about it the right way
