    I've seen those, they seem to be a nice setup and ol' hot rat is a very respected member over there.
    But I like throwing challenges at my buddy HB, son of a gun, always comes through.

    yes that is correct I am very excyted to run tha machine some. I just ordered a new V.F.D. for it and cant wate to get to "play" some.

    I saw a two piece set in an old shotgun news. it was the clamp as described above, along with a second wrench like tool. I would like to offer both as a set because it looks like you will need both.... oppinions please....
    the set I saw would clamp the split tool in a vise then you use the wrench to turn the barrel. this seems OK with me. BUT I will do whatever you guys decide you want.

    I did click on the link above but I got a "blocked" page so I could not see the actual tool their. I have now seen a number of differant styl tools so I am not compeating with anyone. I will build my - our tools with the features I - we decide will work best. hopefully a hybred of all the best features togeather in one set.

    can anyone give me an EXACT dimention of the flats accross the barrel and how wide they are so I can figure an exact cut width, and how thich stock, for the inside of the jaws for the barrel wrench. thanks

    I can not state an exact price yet BUT I can assure you a hotbarrel price will be well UNDER $117!! well under!!

    any pics, suggestions feedback is welcome now in the planning stage! thanks again HB

    those are what I had in mind, a receiver wrench and a barrel vise. The vise would be aluminum, the wrench out of steel.
