Mark, I'm definately in. I have a couple guys over at gunco that might want to come. One can bring a flat jig I believe. Let me know.
Link Posted: 1/17/2006 7:42:49 PM EDT
soulds ok to me, I am a member there too ( I think) only been there a few times dont think I ever posted there, an extra jig is definately a big help, I think we will have 2 press, and plenty of the other tools, we have 2 possibly 3 rivet squeezers, but no plinkers jig or trigger guard jig as of yet, please feel free to spread the info, I really would like guys to contribute with some tool or knowledge, rather that have a party full of newbees so send me a link if you post anything...cool....Mark
Link Posted: 1/18/2006 5:55:32 AM EDT
10 4 Mark. I'll see if the guy he is getting the flat jig from has any other tools we can borrow. Damn, I might have to get another kit or 2!! This is sounding good.
Link Posted: 1/21/2006 4:18:54 PM EDT
Mark, I have secured a trigger jig, and probably another kit for myself!!
Link Posted: 1/21/2006 9:14:50 PM EDT
I have a Tantal built for the party and I am thinking of ordering one of those yugo kits from ammunition store for $ 79, dark bore dosent scare me, I have been researching them for last few days and everyone said go for it, I think Harlan at Nodakspud will have some recievers in by the first week of Feb, are u gonna want to park or paint anything ?? ask your buddys as well
Link Posted: 1/22/2006 5:26:40 PM EDT
Mark, I think I was just going to do finishing if the stuff is going to be set-up. I'm kitted out for a while myself.
Link Posted: 1/22/2006 9:34:09 PM EDT

Mark, still plan on bringing the TG jig. The guy I'm getting it from is still sending it. I think I don't want to do another build right now. The only rec. I could get in time would be a yugo, and I haven't seen any kits that I like. Plus, I don't think between now and then I could get a demil done on a new kit. I just want to finish up the ones I have (2). And I need to spend some $$ on the 1919. Sent you an email too.
Link Posted: 1/23/2006 10:19:05 AM EDT
Mark, I would like attend to finish the kits from the datona build party.Santa brought me a new drill press this year I can bring and I'm sure Lanceman would be willing to bring the 12 ton press he let us use in Datona.

Scott, did you get your underfolders done yet?? I finished both my rommy's. Hope you can come to the party
Link Posted: 1/23/2006 12:50:45 PM EDT
Well I'm back on for a build I think. I found a Yugo to get that might be decent. Need to put that TG jig to work I suppose.

I just finished a yugo. There's a bit of a problem with those DCI receivers.

The mags are very loose on them if you use the predrilled holes. On mine, I moved the TG forward just a "bit". You might want to test yours for fit before you rivet them in.
Link Posted: 1/24/2006 7:00:53 AM EDT
Did you have to weld up the holes and redrill them? Was it a standard or underfolder?
Link Posted: 1/24/2006 8:23:22 AM EDT

I used longer rivets (to fill in the elongated holes)
It was an underfolder, but the problem affects both types of receivers.

Another way to fix this problem is to use an undrilled TG and drill the hole slightly forward.
Link Posted: 1/24/2006 8:37:47 AM EDT
Thanks for the info, I'll be sure to check carefully when I'm doing mine.
Link Posted: 1/25/2006 7:13:54 AM EDT
I have two tantal kits. And I have a squeezer and a TG riveter on the way. It will just make a LONG day to drive there and back from Tallahassee.
Is there a confirmed press yet?
Link Posted: 1/25/2006 7:31:07 AM EDT
Yeah, there's at least one, probably 2 presses. You'll want to email mark "rentprop" for info.

no problems with the press, what we are missing is a spot welder for those who need to bend flats

Blisster, there is a huge machine gun shoot the next day about 20 min from the party, you might think about hanging out for the weekend, one of the guys comming has some really fun toys

I am down for this

will bring beer

dremil, w/ disks

perhaps some leftover gunkote

hacksaw and machete

BTW, does anyone have one of those "hole locators", I may try to buy one if not

Link Posted: 1/27/2006 6:06:38 AM EDT
I'm in. I'm mostly going to be doing cosmetics - park and paint. I know it will be a good time.
Link Posted: 1/28/2006 4:29:13 AM EDT
Rentprop1,

I'm Definitely IN with Probably a Couple of buds in Tow.

I've got a couple of Dremels, Access to a Portable Compressor(5hp/20gal)
for Paint, Angle Grinder/Cut off/Sanding etc.
I Have a couple of Spray Guns & an Air Angle Grinder/Sander Somewhere around here.

I was going to bring some Extra S.S. Park Mostly Manganese(blk),
if anybody Wants Grey Speak UP Early & I'll Bring some Zinc as well.
(I like SS mostly because it's Idiot Proof & faster For a Nice Dark Black finish w/No pre treatment necessary.)

I'll see if a Bud of Mine, who owns a BodyShop,
has a Spot welder I can Borrow for the Weekend.(No Promises)

As far as Duracoat goes, I Prefer to use a Teflon Moly Coat Over the Park.
I find that's the Best/Cheapest Alternative to Robar for Our Lovely S. FLA Weather......
...1st off, Aging of parts is Almost Non-Existant,
2)...The Fresh Park Loves to soak up the moly like oil
(almost like they become 1)
3)...When the Finish wears it's[Teflon] still there &
4)...Cleaning's a Breeze(Carbon Just Doesn't stick)
So If any1 wants to get in on that LMK....

Mainly I'll be Refinishing so I was wondering will we have use of a Blast cabinet???

I would like to Bend a Few Flats as Well...(hence the Spot welder....)
Will we have an oven to heat treat, or
will the ol' torch method be Employed here???
Does any1 Know of, or is Getting Flats from a good source???
Maybe a Group buy???
If so shoot me a PM Please.......

How 'bout these U Drive/Screw Combos, anybody tried this yet???
Some say it's faster/easier than rivets &
have put several thou rounds downrange with success.
Was looking into this also. (Oh!!! the Options...he...LOL)
If I can think of anything else I'll post it.

Maybe U can setup a Working List (in Progress)
of Tools that will be available & What we are lacking.
This way we can concentrate or efforts on what we still NEED....

I posted this Originally on FSN but thought the ARF of FLA deserved to here this also.....
AGAIN, TIA for Being the Gracious host......


U Da MAN!!!

Take Care, CYA & STAY SAFE,

FLATS - FLATS - FLATS

midwestarmory.com has decent prices on flats. I doubt he has enough profit in them to do much of a discount on a group buy. However, his base price of $11.99 is the best I've seen. He offers free shipping on purchases greater than 50.00. Sooooooo, if you guys want to organize a buy, put me down for one. now you just need 4 more and we get the flat delivered for $11.99 each

There may be other flats that you guys like better. This is just my two cents. Regards. Progunvoter.
Link Posted: 1/28/2006 5:38:36 AM EDT
I don't NEED any, but I'd put in for a flat or two just for fun.

[Last Edit: 1/28/2006 7:41:49 AM EDT by Rentprop1]
yea I need 1 flat as well, someone pick me up one......most of the ones on the market are from the same source, some sell them for $ 11.99 and others for more, the only better would be the ones WITH OUT the front holes pre-drilled............ DILLIGAF I sent you a PM on FSN about the party, Walt, Dilligaf has park stuff as well maybe the 2 of you put your heads together and see what else we need.....

I'm new to AK building and I want to attend.

I know I need the following:
Flat
The parts kit (duh)

But what else do I need? Are all the parts I need to complete in the kit or do I have to get some others and do I have to get any US parts for compliance? Thanks for helping a newbe out.



ETA: I am in Cocoa anyone interested in carpooling?

Link Posted: 1/30/2006 3:35:10 PM EDT
Never done a flat, lets see, you need...

Kit
flat
rails for flat
center support rivet
Regular rivets
US parts

It's also helpful to have the demil done before you get to the party, so that you're just "building" when you have access to all the tools. You'll want to check with Mark, as it's his show.

Just be sure to bring a 100% receiver with you to the party. Chances are fairly slim that someone will be bringing a spot welder (with the specially modified tong) to weld in the rails.

Otherwise you might be twittling your thumbs for most of the day.

Without having a spot welder, won't these flats we bend be somewhat useless? Forgive my ignorance, I've always just used 100% receivers. If we can make these useable, I could put in for some flats.

No, they will be 20% useless, or 80% useful. Depends on how you look at it!

Aaahhhh, but I only said "somewhat useless"........
Link Posted: 2/1/2006 4:05:24 AM EDT
You can tap and screw on the rails - works as good or better than spot welds which are just used because they're cheaper. Tig welding through some holes in the receiver also works fine.

Count me in as i need to bend 5, count 'em, FIVE flats.

you guys talk about useless and useless, of you are talking about the flats... lol... at least you can get them bent at the party, thats what I did at the Daytona build, bent a few flats, I later used a spot welder to put the rails on, at the Tampa build party, yes, you can screw them and yes you can tig them, I have even seen where people mig then.
jjk308 welcome, please be considerate of press time if all u want to do is bend, might think about comming by a little later in the day, or come at regulat time and work your self in.....we have a general plan as not to be a cluster f&^% when everyone wants to use the press, and it looks like we will have 2 presses set up

So if I got a 100% receiver and a polish parts kit,what else would I need to bring?.Im very new to Ak47,But really want to learn how to put one together
Link Posted: 2/3/2006 6:10:29 PM EDT
Rivets is all you NEED to bring. If your going to try and change the gas piston for a compliance part, that would be good to have. Other US parts aren't necessarily needed to build it, just to finish it. You really should demil the kit before the party, so your just assembling.

If your trying to build and underfolder, and the rear is not already cut for it, I hope your good with a dremel. I'm not so I got a yugo kit and a dci that is ready to build (hopefully)
Link Posted: 2/3/2006 6:50:31 PM EDT
did you find a nice bore,I cant seem to find a bright one.I think Im going to go dci 1.6 on the receiver
Link Posted: 2/4/2006 6:56:34 AM EDT
I found a pretty decent yugo UF. Keep in mind if you get a polish UF, the DCI receiver will not work for it.

i am in on a flat also going to the party for my first ak build. be easy on me guys and remember to help me out hahah
Link Posted: 2/5/2006 4:07:41 AM EDT
