    Where does one obtain large/plotter print-outs of the actual receiver dimensions as visible on Grasshopper's first posting on page 1 of 11?

    I think that the inner measurments are the same 1.250". The change, on the Yugo, is in the thickness of the flat 1.50mm vs. 1.05mm. Which on this jig means that the angle iron sections would need to be an additional .45mm apart. Then you would have to remove a section from each angle iron to allow for clearance of the two "Bulged" side areas for the front trunnion. Someone on another board thought that placeing a wedge of oak in the bottom of the jig to limit the flat's (at the front trunnion end) travel into the jig. Therefore not messing up the receivers bulges. I think that some have said that the rails on the flat are already bent so you would not have to worry about that,

    Any thoughts?

    The wedge makes sense, once the intial fold is made you push the flat through till you get to the bulges. The wedge is just there for insurance that you dont go to far and damage the bulges. If the bend isn't quite perfect you can tweak it ....or BFH it till it's perfect. good luck and post pics.

    Ok, I have read this thread 3 times now. On the first trip through, I found the distance between the 2 pieces of angle iron. Now my old eyes can't find that dim any more!

    What if you ran 2" angle iron and steped it down on one end to the side distance (at the front of the receiver) minus the bulges? Run the flat down in the front until it bottoms out then work the rear of the receiver down into the jig?

    the inside dim is 1.250" plus the wall of your flatX2.

    Default Poor man's bending jig---- HOLY CRAP !

    I just built one of these today.

    I had a piece of sheel metal with an ace template glued to it just sitting around and I figured, what the heck.

    Cranked down the bolts and VIOLA', one brand spanking new, completely bent home brew ak receiver.

    Finished it by moving the flat stock up to the top rail lines, cranked it down in my vise, it in the jig, and hammered over the top rails.

    It's a beautiful thing..............

    Great idea. I love the ingenuity I keep seeing on this forum. When the Yugo flats come in for fixed-stock kits I'm going to use your idea to make a frame for my DPH bending jig.

    The inside dimensions of the yugo reciever are different than a standard receiver due to the thickness of the metal. The outside dimensions of the receiver should be the same. Inside of a standard receiver is 1.25" and a yugo is around 1.20".
