    Default Reciever blocks

    Does anyone make bloack that allow you to put your reciever in a vise and then tighten the barrel down with a wrench?

    Reason I ask is because I have access to a heavy machinery adjustable wrench that easily adjusts to the flats on a FAL barrel, and has enough length to torque/time the barrel.

    Ago on how to make a barrel wrench for less than $10. The dude used u bolts like for muffler clamps and scrap flats with a bar for tourc. Did you try a google search for homemade barrel wrench for rifles.

    I've used an oak block cut into two halves.

    I'll probably use the wood blocks. Now if only I had more time. Maybe while I'm home on leave between duty stations.

    after wanting to make my own receiver block I bought one, it was pretty cheap, I also bought a barrel vise but the wrench is easier, I use a old flat wrench not a open ended one so I don't round the edges but the suggestions above will work also

    You could modify a set of soft-jaws for the vice.
    The lead or whatever they make it out of is real soft and easy to mold around rivets & stuff.

    Two pieces of pine should do the trick for me, I have a wrench that won't slide off, might need a cheater bar though.

    Akarl, you might be onto something. Use the cut off receiver stub to cast a lead receiver wrench. Set the stub vertically in a tin can, fill the can to the level of the stub, then use a bandsaw to flatten the sides and split the lead off the stub. Perfectly formed soft jaws for the receiver.
