    Ok, I've built one of these jigs -- henceforth I'm going to call it "The Grasshopper" in honor of its inventor -- and I think I've ruined my flat.

    How did those of you who built one keep the flat parallel when pounding it into the frame? Mine tilted to the side.

    If I can borrow a camera I'll post pictures.

    I tried hammering on the flat itself to straighten it out and now I have gouges... sigh

    Maybe use a c clamp on one end while you get it started.

    I just built one of these jigs and grasshopper is just right for the name ,From start to finish 1 hour and 20 minutes . I used 1 1/2 inch angle and made a third bar so the flat would not start cocked . see the pictures ..

    Ps I added roll pins so it will line up every time thats what's in the baggie. I cheated a little i printed the pictures from the forum and used them out in my work shop us old farts have short attention spans.

    Actually SKSMan was the first one I saw to make one of these. Geez that was over a year ago I guess. "All things old are new again"! Search around here and I think it was in fact "poor man's bending jig" or something like that. Good stuff!

    Yes, the credit should go to SKSMan. I just made a simpler version of his design.

    i did a tapco flat with the jig but the mag well did not bend i had to get the BFH after it .I put a ace template on it and every thing lines up I think the bar stock is not wide enough and the magazine well pulls out when it bends ,any other ideas to fix the problem.

    Hello Grasshopper,
    Your clever idea has changed my attitude toward building a frame from a flat. I will try your invention asap. This is a simple solution not unlike that of M. Kalashnikov's work. I am glad to have found this forum. This is my first post.

    Hi Grasshopper,
    I foregot to ask if you had any ideas on heat treating the frames. I hope to join a build party soon.

    You only have to head treat the hammer and trigger holes. There a few thread on the site on heat treating. They have a lot of information on heat treating than I can describe here. Good luck.
