[quote=1biggun;599076]just get a piece of 4140 from air craft spruce lay a normal flat over it and copy the hole layout it will cost about $5 . That how I do my 308 type conversion recivers.
you dont need demples even on a normal AK.
you certainly wont need them on a build that will have a mag well welded in.quote]
It's clear to me that without some of the required tools I'm pretty much going to have to either pay a lot of money to have a smith do it...or not do it at all. Being on unemployment REALLY blows...and limits me too.
What I'm going to have to do is buck up and buy some tools. I'm gonna build one of those Grasshopper bending jigs, instead of buying one for $150 from AK Builder. I'm also gonna buy a Mig/flux wire welder from Harbor Freight.
They have a 160amp MIG/flux wire welder for $100 but with a 220 hook up. They also have a 90amp MIG/flux wire welder with a 110 hook up for $90....will the 90amp be enough to do everything I need on firearm stuff ??
The 110 would be a LOT easier since I don't have a 220 hook up in my house....I did but it was disconnected so I'd have to get an electrican to come in and do one in my garage...would rather save that money if the 90amp one is good enough...?
The next 2-4 weeks instead of buying parts kit, parts and ammo I'm gonna concentrate on tooling up. In the long run I'll save a lot of money bending my own flats and doing all my own work.
I am gonna buy the MAC-10 .45acp grease gun magwell just in case they get hard to get in the next month, everything else I'm sure will be readily available.
