I still have a way to go, but happy just the same!
At this time I am measuring .200" out from the die. It is a pain and I am seeing slight variations due to my poor eyesite. I am in the process of putting a removable stop (gauge), that I can use to accurately position the flat while tightening down the hold down block.Rhino_66 said:Tapco flats bent on the gtbehary wonder jig. They look good!
Looks like you're enjoying the spot welder, too.
Do you have any drawings yet for the die? I'm interested in how you keep the position for the top rail consistent. I mean do you just measure the amount of flat sticking out for the top rail? Or do you use removable index pins in the die?
I built a stronger version of my prototype and will post the pics tomorrow. Just got it permanently welded tonight, though all the receivers were made while just tack welded.fal_shooter said:gtbehary
Is this a jig you made? Is it different from the 555th jig? Could you post a picture of the jig?
No, West Palm Beach was untouched (thank goodness). I have a barn with horses surrounded by old oak treas, so storms always scare us big time. We were beat up during the storm (of the century) that followed Andrew. If you are ever in the PBC area, stop on by.erikk said:Great looking bends!!!! I guess the Sunny South FL where you are didn't get "Charlie" like we did here in Punta Gorda. What a mess. And the worst part is that it put my AK building on hold for a long time
