Just for curiosity sake, do you sell all the tools necessary to build a complete rifle?

Have you thought about selling a "starter kit" for noob people like me that have no tools or experience to build a rifle?

cranedaddy,

Their are a lot variables in AK building but for the most parts I sell all the tools you need to build most kits. Keep in mind you will also need some simple tools I don't sell like a vise, wrenches, drill, drill bits....ect. I am also working on a flat bending tools for those folks who are making their own receivers.

Thanks,
Emery

Andrew,

Yes, I am from Michigan, I was born and raised here. I left for several years while on active duty, I moved back to Michigan to finish my degree and I opened my machine shop at the same time.

Thanks,
Emery

scattergun,

I'm not the one who made the video's so I am not sure where he purchased that vise. I use USA made machine and bench vises in my shop but you certainly don't need anything that costly for assembling a AK. You can try ebay, amazon, grizzly, and harbor freight for a cost effective import vise.

Thanks,
Emery

GreenMachine79- I can't say enough about how much I liked using all of your jigs necessary for my AKM build (Barrel/trigger guard/long rivet tool/bolt cutter jaws). They all were simple to use, have exceptional machining, and work very well. The "How-To" videos are a big help too.

One thing I'd recommend is to include a description sheet with the long rivet tool as to what each of the pressing pins are used for. I was thoroughly perplexed as to what the pin with the deep hole in it was used for. If I had known this was used for aligning the rivet and slightly squishing it inside the trunnion before using the pin with the divet to form the head, I would not have had to go through all the trouble of ordering new rivets and drilling out 2 before I got it right (without the alignment pin; I just got lucky). This step was also left out of the tutorial video.

This alignment pin may be common sense to the experienced builder, but to someone like myself who knows only what I see in the instructional video, not knowing what this pin does created a lot of extra work and wasted time.

sti2relaxxin,

It sounds like a good idea to include a parts description with the long rivet tool. I think that will clear up confusion as to which pieces are used for alignment.

Thanks,
Emery

Emery I just ordered the complete set of tools for my first build attempt of a Ak 74 from AK Builders. They look to be well built tools.

firemanast,

Thank you for the order. These tool are machined from alloy steel and tool steel then hardened, they are very durable and can form nice rivets.

Thanks,
Emery

Asking question here as it may benefit others. Do you also have a tool for smushing regular rivets?

+1 for the rivet jaws. I was even able to touch up a poorly riveted AK with them. I have no idea how it was originally riveted. But all the rivets spun. A quick grab with the jaws after disassembly and it was 100%. No more wiggly unsafe AK.

Was going to drill them out and start over. But it forms them so well there was really no point. And that looks like it was the issue. Not enough force on them to begin with.

It works. And it doesn't mess up the receiver or anything either.

Can you please clarify, I'm not sure what you are asking? AK's use solid rivets made from steel. I have tools that can take care of almost all the rivets found on a AK. www.tothtool.com

A lot of time was put into perfecting my tools, thank you for sharing your experience!

I mean the trunnion rivets. The description for Long Rivet Tool only says it is used for the long rear trunnion and center support rivets. What about the regular rivets on the front and rear trunnions?

This tools will crush the rear trunnion long rivets as well as center support rivets on your AK build.

gesundheit,

You need the short rivet jaws for the short rivets used on the front and rear trunnions.

Thanks,

The vice in the picture is a Kurtz and they sell around 600. They are worth it if you want superior detail. Used in a lot of high end shops and machines.

These are great tools, but I always seem to have trouble with the rear trunnion rivet installer. When I use it the way it's described on your web page, mine always come out a little crooked.

I realize this is because I'm setting up the receiver crooked, but it looks straight when I start. Somewhere in the screwing down process, things get crooked.

What works really nice is to use the Toth rear rivet jig in a press. For some reason, I have more control over the torsion and can apply direct downward pressure. The guy on the YT video makes it look easy to do it the way it was intended. When I "eyeball it" like he does and start turning, my rivet heads are crooked after about 5 or 6 turns on each bolt.

It's probably just a quirk with me, and I'm sure you can point out how I'm doing it wrong. It's not a knock on the tool, just my ability to use it properly.

Lebowski,

In the video he is just eyeballing the alignment. I use the pin with the hole in it to center the rivet/trunnion in the tool, i then place the flat plate with a cute out through the pin and tighten the large bolt that the pins slide through down onto the plate to lock everything in place. I remove the pin with the hole then I proceed to use the dimpled pin to crush the rivet. I hope this helps, if you still have questions let me know.

Thanks,
Emery

I'm halfway tempted to knock out those back rivets and try again... If it weren't such a pain to demill the rear. I've got another build coming up and I'll try it your way then.

Thank you so much, Emery!

Wes,

Your welcome. You should be happy with the results on the next build, if you have any problems let me know and we will get it setup right.

Info on the barrel tool. (Standard)

Web site says they ship 5/17/13. Not sure if I should order or if that was just for previous orders? I have a barrel I need to pull. And it seems like a handy thing to have laying around.

I would like to order, do you have all tools available for shipping now? Your website says Long Rivet is out of stock. I want to buy once, ship once.

Thanks.

GreenMachine will these tools work for milled receivers or only for stamped ones?
