Chiroone, I started my first receiver but ran into some problems with the upper rails and one side of the receiver. I made some comments about it in the thread from the GB on flats I think, or it may have been 555th's thread. How bout you?
Yeah those tools could do the job. The base needs to be welded, but you might be able figure out how to bolt it together. Just take your time and make the side pieces perfect.Cephus said:Thanks I wasn't thinking . But if you make a slot along the dimple line then you could ,I think just a thought. Now can i use just the tools I stated ?
After I cut out my sides, I bolt them together and do all the finish work with them bolted so it makes a matched pair. Make the side pieces out of 1/4' plate and the center spacer out of 3/4" keystock. Pollish the insides of the base to keep the flat from binding and pulling loose and use some lube while pressing.Cephus said:Thanks for the incouragement 555th . I do my best to keep the sides inline,is it best to use a corner clamp on them to keep alined or just use a sq. for the job. TAI
