    What else is left? Polish pre bent? Childers? Can't think of much else.

    I got an HF 20 ton press from a private sale for $120, was used once for a car project.
    https://www.harborfreight.com/20-ton...ess-60603.html

    I'm not positive, but I'm thinking the quality of the press (amount of side-to-side slop) and the jerkiness of the hydraulic jack might play a part in the ability to control the press. This press has 3/8" side movement...but I haven't pressed anything yet, maybe it's not an issue.
    The only press I've ever used was a 20 or 30 ton with a downward facing ram at the top with the hydraulic cylinder on the side. It was larger than the press I just got.

    AGI has several AK videos/programs, which are you referring...the Armorers course?

    I'm looking at AK-Builder as well as the others I mentioned. I'm not sure about the bolt cutters, since I think I'll get the 'Plinker' jig so I can do both the short and the long rivets. But not an expert yet. I hope the books, online videos, and a few hours 'hands-on' day at a local builders 'armory' a couple weeks from now will familiarize me a lot.

    Receivers: I prefer the idea of pre-bent, heat treated then drill the holes with a mill-drill (ReCreator perhaps)...but a local builder likes flats that are pre-drilled then heat treat...he thinks drilling the holes is a challenge. Maybe I should do one of each for the experience?

    Man this is from the 90's! As I recall it was building the AKS from a parts kit vid.
    I sold most everything to recoup the cost after bending a "few"flats.
    I also had printed drill spots on sticky back paper for the pre bent.
    Bought the metric drill bits,the guides required at the time for the top rails
    Made the riveting tool from a HF bolt cutter,assorted taps. Much luck on the builds sir. Most folks just go Nodak Spud now.
    Great deal on the press btw.
    First AK I ever built? A pistol from Romy G parts. It worked. I was young and dumb then.Fun doing the machine work tho.
    APCO had em i believe in the day.The flats I mean.
