    Default Making selector notches

    Now I remember way back there was a tutorial on how to do the notches yourself,but for the life of me I can not find it
    Normally I just use a Dremel with a diamond point.
    I would like to see how everyone else does it and any tricks to doing it

    Good point Bob. I have made them several different ways, but I really want to make like a jig that I can clamp on and then run the Dremel through a slot or something, so it stays neat. I can never seem to get mine as clean as I'd like.

    I'm not too picky, so I just use a Dremel with the thick cutoff wheel.

    yep cutoff wheel or the bevel stone grider makes perfect selector notches, I have also used the cutouts and etched them into the metal with salt and vinegar. the bevel stone is easier

    I've seen write-ups on how to do them with a phone charger and some solution that I might try for kicks just to see how that method works. But I'm wondering how well would it hold up once you get to sandblasting it before applying the finish?
    You could probably make a jig for the dremel by just using the router attachment

    dremel router attachments are the way to go that was how I did the FNFAL casting by hand

    I never used a phone charger I used a battery charger same principle, only use spare alligator clips, the salt vineager solution eats the metal alligator clips, for the selector notches heavy black electrical tape cut with a exacto knife should work test it on scrap first
