Central Va's BUILDFEST 2004 :thumbup1:
For those that may not be aware, I am hosting a group AK build at my house in Mechanicsville, Va (right outside of Richmond) on Oct 30th. There have been a series of emails bounced around concerning this and we are ready to rock and roll.
This all-day event begins at 10Am at 6777 Rural Point Rd, Mechanicsville va 23116. If your bringing tools and need to set up, please arrive at about 8AM if you can.
We are grilling out, so bring food and drinks. Alcoholic beverages are allowed in moderation. Nothing illegal (3rd holes, short barrels, non-922r compliance) allowed. We will most likely have a police presence . . . at least one deputy that I know from my Church is interested in coming and doing a build.
For the most part we will be working from flats and riveting our work. If you want to do a pre-bent or screw build you are welcome to work with us, but you probably won't get it finished in a day.
As far as tools go, the following folks are bringing stuff:
Wire fed Mig welder 110 volt
Right angle grinder (should work real well for knocking the old rivet heads off)
Jewelers files (for small work)
Dremel tool and some cutting wheels
Some drill bits
Drill bit sharpener (electric)
xebec press kit
box of regular small tools
Parts up for grabs if someone is in a jam:
small parts, left overs
punches for removing rivets
xebec press kit
box of small AKM parts people could use if they need to
tool box with general small tools
Barrell threading tools
Rasps and files for stock fitting
small drill press and some bits
I also have a small portable bead blaster but no
MAPP gas torch (for heat treating)
bucket for quenching
3 lb sledge!!
104 quart igloo cooler
115v spot welder - with lower tong modification.
Hand drill and bits.
Dremmel tool and cutters.
Pliers and vice grips
Thumb Clip Pull Pin
20 ton press
barrell pin removal tool
I think that we're going to need another press . . . anyone coming have one that they can bring with them?
Also, how many flats are you guys planning on pressing each?
