    Hotbarrel, if you make some of these FAL wrenches I will buy one from you. I have used your gas pistons in the past and have always been impressed.

    If you could make the barrel vise also, I'd be in for both.

    WOW I did not expect this much responce!!!
    well our good friend bassettjm has kindly offered to send me one to work from. this will give me the odd shaped pattern to cut for the barrel, as for the attached handle or square drive, I dont realy care what we go with.
    I am not realy supposed to be on the net today, SO if you are on the thread here when I come back I will call that good. HOWEVER I will start a new thread when I get time in a couple days. I will post all info here so nobody will get lost in the transaction.
    it looks like it is made from aluminum. dose anyone know what grade? if not I will get the best grade available to me.
    if anyone else wants to get in line for a tentitive buy fel free to post in this thread till I start the new one.
    as allways thanks for the intrest. HB

    HB,

    That home brew drawing is the only place I've ever seen one made from aluminum. All the "real" ones are made from .500 steel plate.
    I'd rather have steel if that's an option. Aluminum would probably work OK, But I'm concerned that it might loosen up over time, since it only actually holds the receiver in 4 small spots.
