OK guys I now have a barrel and stub in hand!!
I have the stock for the barrel wrenches in hand and cut to length. I am going to start milling out the notches very soon "tonight"
yes they will have a clamp bolt to help prevent slip.
NOW as for the drive hole. I can make a 3/4" square hole BUT I had an idea I thought I would run by you guys. how about I drill a large hole place a large bolt through it and weld it in place. them you could have something like a 7/8" hex to put a 7/8" box wrench on... what do you think?? just a thought.
do you think it would be strong enough?? I will do a test at work and get some results.
I do not have the reciever wrench yet to work from BUT it is on the way.
I have to be honest with all of you as for as a time frame here so nobody is disapointed or upset. I have to work for the next 11 days in a row to cover a co-workers vacation. I can do some work but not much with this project. after that I should have all the stock and things should move rite along.
hope this is not to dissapointing. I am shure the price will make up for it.
thanks for reading HB
