I posted this on another board but they don't seem to understand my question.
I have the lower modified tong installed and in order for the tips to touch, I had to bend the lower tong in an upward angle. With all the top adjustment the tips would not come together with the modified lower tong.
My question, when I insert the modified lower tong into the receiver it touches the other side. Do I need to bend the bent blank open slightly untill I finish the spot welds and then bend it back together.
I haven't actually welded any rails with it yet only tested on old receiver stubs and any part that touched the tong sparked, that's why I'm aksing about it touching.
