    dude yesterday i went to a farm store picked up some angle iron and flat steel and took it home and put it together. now today i am going to try to bend my flat!!! i took pictures of putting it all together step by step and i am going to make detailed instructions and put them on my site.

    i need to cut the flat steel down a bit shorter. then if all goes well i will have my receiver done.

    I don't need no stinking press or a BFH.




    I'd probably really screw up something. My poor man Jig worked great no problems at all.
    Total cost
    2X2 angle $15
    1.25X1.25x.25 $5
    nuts and bolts $6
    total = $ 26

    Jig = $150 plus cheap HF press $100 = $250 - 26= $224 savings


    Pulling the flat through the jig with 3/8 bolts worked perfect from my end I actualy used too many pull bolts 3 would have probably been perfect.

    Now I'm hooked I think I'll do another 10

    Good idea!

    How do you plan to bend the top rails?

    Thumbs up

    I have bent 2 flats with this jig,very simple allthough a lot of elbow grease with just a BFH.I used a big C clamp to keep the flat stable untill it started to go into the jig.I used a 1 1/4" square piece of stock to do the top rails,still grinding down the rails but I am amazed that all the holes line up,have assembled the trigger/hammer assembly into the shell,ran the bolt carrier though it(still need to grind down the upper rails a bit) but so far,it looks like it should go together with no problems.

    Thanks again.

    First post...with threads like this you guys rock...[Terminator voice on] I'll be back.[Terminator voice off]
    Has anyone considered modifying this to bend the new Tapco Yugo Flats. I think that it would be easy.
