View Full Version : Wood receiver wrench(Holder)?

Do you guys think a wooden receiver wrench put in a vice would be good enough to install the barrel on? Or would this turn out like the aluminum receivers, Blow up in my face!
they work fine. don't bother with that part in the vice. did finally get a steel one though to get some more leverage. could probably have just bolted on a bar though.

I made mine out of two pieces of close grain oak I cut from a shipping pallet. I drilled the pieces to clamp together with two 1/4" bolts. I cut the contours for the receiver with a sears 'dremel' with a router attachment. In use I do not rely on the 1/4" bolts, they just hold the whole mess together so I can clamp it in a bench vice... I used a crescent wrench on the barrel flats too. I have used the same rig to barrel two receivers and it is still in good shape, no cracks.
