    How about a "Show your Tools" thread.

    My version of SKS Hunters "poor mans" tools.

    Grasshopper, Thanks for sharing this idea , Planning to make one soon - However, I would also like a little more detailed info on how you bent the top rails.... Pics would be appreciated.

    So the bars are held in between the sides of the receiver merely by the tension of the vise? That'll work. Thanks!

    Well, the angles are held together by screws(they are part of the outer frame), I did not put them in the pictures. The vise just put more tension on the bars.

    Great idea! I'm going to try and make one. I got all the material tonight.

    When you bend over the top rails how much do you bend over? I'll measure it out but would like to check it against what you did.

    Also did you hammer it all the way through when bending the flat?

    Thanks

    You need to measure the inside dimension of the receiver when bent the top rails.
    I think the front is 1.25 - (.04x2) and the rear is 1.7 - (.04x2).

    you can hammer it all the way through if you want. which ever is easier.

    A suggestion for doing the top rails: cut an oak or maple wedge to match the slope of the top rails and use it to back-up the bar stock you'll be folding the top rail over. You can slide the wege right or left to adjust the height, and shim one end or the other to get the angle perfect. It'll also help to keep the metal bar from dropping into the receiver while you're hammering. Worked very well for me, and I didn't need three hands to get it aligned and clamped in the vise.

    how about putting a bolt at each end, or threw existing holes, of the bar to touch the bottom of the receiver to adjust the height for bending the top rails ?
