I'm in the Middletown, OH. area and I'm looking for some help on AK builds. Anyone close to me have resources to do the rivet work and/or flat bending?

I havnt bent my own but theres a good thread in the AK build it yourself section on how to bend them yourself. I bought a global trades reciever and will be putting it together in the coming month.

I have to admit some of you guys have some big ones to buy a flat and not have any flat bending tools/ jigs whatsoever. Im not saying it cant be done but it seems like some people think they can just put the flat in a vice and make the bends with a pair of vice grips. I wouldnt even attempt one without making a special die fixture. Not to mention you have to get it heat treated as far as I know.

I have put a few screw builds and weld builds together. I just recently got the rivet jigs/tools and a Xebec press kit. I still need to get a press and I should be ready to go. I have 3 Romanian kits left and I plan on getting one more kit.
I agree with getting 100% receivers. Its a lot less work and you are able to sell the rifle later, should you need to.

I don't know where middletown is but it seems to me I have heard of it. I am in Mansfield.

Yeah, I am near Dayton. But if some had the right tools to help, I'd drive to wherever I needed.
