My receiver blanks are thick but the pins and safety lever on my own builds are all stock and unaltered. What I do is set my X and Y pins with a wack of my rubber mallet and the lock them in place with a sheperd hook and the safety lever. Remember, I said "wack them with a rubber mallet to seat deep enough". This also works on setting the wall in place for the safety lever to have full depth setting. What I now do is press in the safety lever dimple on my blanks, this should help as well.
Anyway thats what I do, and it works fine.
Alright - it's really simple. After the holes are drilled to size, put the pins in place - see how they are a tad short? Flip the receiver over so the big heads of the pins are up - brace the frame against the ol' workbench and just give them each a wack! Now they are seated deep enough! :thumbup1:Cephus said:DITTO!!!!!!!!!!!!!
