I'm in the corvallis area. Just kits though. Nothing to assemble with.

I'm also in the albany area (salem, corvallis) as well as theres a couple other members in the oregon area, 69veewee and socandyman post here often. I'm going to be building a kit or two here within a couple of months, so I'm sure we could swap info.

Build party?

That'd be nice.

I was able to get my kits demilled, and the barrels pressed out on my own. All I'd need help with is the riveting of a predrilled receiver, and to press a barrel back in.

I don't know how soon I could start my builds as I'm still sinking money into kits that I would like to build. But perhaps sometime in february we could all meet up and do builds. I mainly need tools to do the job and don't want to buy them as I'm only going to do a couple of builds and would rather rent the tooling.

I just used a borrowed 8 1/2 ton press to remove the barrel from the kit. I could borrow it again and a side grinder. Need a rivet tool and?

Drill press.

I live in Corvallis, and put my AMD together mostly in the garage. I do want to re-reciever it as the one I used was slightly tweaked.

Do you have proper tooling, tim?

I just got the HF 18" bolt cutters to try and fab a rivet squeezer. Then got home to find out the 24" are on sale for a dollar less(8.99).

Rivet squeezers work OK, need better dimpled bar for the rivet heads.
Need some way to fix rivets that came out sub par.
Link Posted: 1/15/2006 10:40:44 PM EDT
if the rivets came out bad about only shoice you have it to remove them and try again :)

I live in Salem and a buddy of mine and myself are getting ready to start our first builds, would be happy to get together with some other people and do some building. I've got a drill press and some other tools. Maybe if we all got together we could scrounge together enough tools to do our builds.
