Your welcome, and sorry again for taking so long.
No I haven't used any of his tools, as long as you didn't hear anyone complain about him you should be ok.
If you have any problems with his tools, see if you can get a refund. There's a guy on here (and other forums) named restoreit and he makes a lot of building tools, he has a jig like this one too.
I don't know what happened to Plinker, I don't think anyone has heard from him in a while?
That Harbor Frieght bench top drill isn't bad for the price, it's not top quality but it works fine for a home shop. Just get a decent vice for it, it will do what you need it to for AK builds and most other projects.
I got a Craftman one like that and it has held up for many years of use.
If you got the room and funds for a floor model, I'd go that route. Might even watch Craig's List in your area. Or see if there are any places that sell these types of tools in your area, a lot of them have used tools for sale too. You could get a good quality used drill for the price of a low quality new one.
