    HB,

    The square cutouts in the receiver wrench are for 1/2" and 3/4" breaker bars, that's all the handle that's needed. Actually all you really need is the 3/4" that's all most of them have.

    yes That was why I stated that "I" needed the stubs, I actually bought a stub that was taken off with a wrench in a standard table vise the charging handle slot was crushed but thats only MY concern, and yes dremel cut-off wheels and chisels. most folks posting over at the file's dremel and turn the barrel with a open end wrench and skip the wrenchs posted above. again a little heat to the stub, the barrel vise tightened and then placed in a vice. I need the Large hole for the large breaking bar
    lots of Thompson kit owners did the same thing they cut the stubs off with a dremel and a chisel, until they realized that the stub was the only part of the old receiver you could not buy, but again you folks with store bought receivers do not have that worry

    Hot barrel-good luck with your venture

    Will this one work -- and I'm sure it will, the difference can't be much -- on the inch ones?

    I know I'll be needing some tools to assemble my FAL (assuming, of course, that I can ever find a receiver at anything less than outrageous price and delivered sometime before they open the skating rink in the infernal region!). Depending on your price, I may be in for one.

    hot barrel,
    just to make things a little clearer I'm looking for a reciver wrench not the barrel wrench. the cut out for the braker bar is not needed ( if you make one) Ill tack weld a plate on the bottom and clamp it down in a vice. muttman


    this might help if the image works. muttman

    There is no need to weld anything to it. The receiver wrenches are designed to clamp in a vise, as is.

    When they do come up, they don't last very long.
    Here's a set listed on the files last night, it sold in less than an hour. LOL
