Default I need an ak jig

Ok I need a jig for a 1.5 mm thick ak flat. While I would love to buy an ak builder jig, for one or two flats it's just not worth.

Does anybody know of a cheaper option. The poor man's jig is not really an option for the 1.5 mm flat. I would love to find someone who rents one.

KC, I would pay full price for a rental. With the agreement of a refund for a good chunk of it on return. I know thats not what your saying, but I do understand what your saying.

Honestly I an looking for a used one, then sell when I am done with it, but it does not seem many people have these things anymore.

If nobody is selling used ones, you will be able to corner the market when you buy new ones, use them for 2 lowers and then sell them as used.
With no competition, you can get top dollar...

I am in Westminster Maryland.

The issue with the poor man jig is the inside is not 1.25 of an inch. The 1.5 flat dies needs to be 1.208.

That's the whole issue with using a poor mans jig? The .042" difference in the inner dies? Why not just grind, or mill, or Dremel, or etc... it/them down? It's just some cheap 1/4" flat stock right? That's what I did... I thought you were hung up on a bulged trunnion...

i started doing that exact, but i just moved. all my tools are still in boxes, and piled on the floor of the garage. yes i am working my way thru them, i just wanted to get the flat bent so as i found tools i could just use them.
