Ok, I have two Imbel kits. I will be doing as much as I can on my own. I'm looking at the Schneider Machine receiver wrench and the barrel vise at gunthings.com. The receiver wrench is $59 and the barrel vise is $85. Is this reasonable?

I don't have a garage or anything right now and limited tools, or I would build some of the tools myself. I was thinking about getting in touch with some local guys and trying to borrow some tools or get in on a group build, but I figure these two kits won't be my only two, so why not go ahead and get the tools I need.

Thanks for any opinions or guidance :)

A bunch of folks in the Philadelphia area put together a group FAL assembly party a couple of months ago at one guy's machine shop. I didn't make it down but I heard they had a great time and managed to get a half dozen uppers assembled correctly.

The price and people you're planning on buying tools from looks right. You might want to check the Marketplace section on the FAL Files because people are regularly selling the FAL assembly tools and videos after they finish their own builds.
