lookin to do an AK build and bend a flat.. sounds like more fun and cheaper.. good price at the last Del Mar gun show! but trying to find someone close to see if they have a bending jig and if they could help me bend it before I spend the money on buying one or building one! thanks for the help!

you can fabricate a very inexpensive way of bending your flat w/o a press, just with basic tool that you probably already have.

yeah I think I'm gonna abduct some stuff from work to make a poor mans jig but I was hoping to do it the lazy way and use someone elses :-)

my total cost for the jig was like $23.00 +/- (home depot)
