    Last night I tried bending the Tapco flat. Pulling it through was definitely harder than a .039" flat, but it wasn't bad.

    Unfortunately, it bent unevenly. The flat didn't slip, but it looks like the baseplate got cocked somehow and it pulled one side down first. All four all-thread rods were bent slightly.

    I'm pretty sure I can salvage the flat. I think I need to run some weld along the sides of the bottom plate so it is centered when it starts into the frame. I also need to do something about the alignment of the bending shoe and the bottom plate. First time around, I made it to take standard Tapco flats, and used their extra holes for alignment pins. But the AK-Builder flats don't have those holes, so I removed the pins. None of the Yugo flats have pins. I'll figure something out. At least it wasn't one of my AK-Builder Yugo flats I waited over a year for...

    I just received another 8 boxes of ammo from Cabelas. I ordered back in November. It's still too cold to play in shop much for me.

    I havent said much to this point. But I am watching and rooting for you to hurry up too.!!!

    So many projects so little time. I have the stuff siting aside for the 80% cold steel/yugo/450 bushmaster

    The VZ58 uses a tiny pin. will have to check it for you this evening if i remember it and my vitamin b-12 shot (to help me to remember)

    Thanks, I'd appreciate that.

    I got the steady rest cut down for the 10" lathe, so I'm that much closer to chambering the barrel. I have the centering plugs almost done; they're a snug fit in the barrel, and I need to countersink the opposite ends so they'll run on centers. I left enough stock so I could center them on the 4-jaw chuck. Once I cut the barrel steps it'll be centered on the bore, so I can run one end in the steady rest and chamber it...

    Green Mountain now has 20" barrels in stock for the same price I paid for the 15" barrel a couple of years ago, so if I mess the barrel up I can reserve it for a future pistol build and do a longer rifle barrel...

    I kept pushing the Beowulf stuff aside to jump on new projects as they caught my fancy. Now the urge is upon me again...

    .133" is the hole diameter of the VZ58 barrel pin.

    Wow! That's about the size of the barrel furniture pins on an AK!

    A little bigger but still small. And the pins are HARD as are the vz receivers.
