I got one fixture made during the week. The second one I finished today and then started on the AR lower. I figured why spend money on a 80% when a blank is cheaper and both require milling. I picked up two forgings at the machine gun shoot. They were $20 a piece. Guy wanted a decent chunk of cash for a fixture. The fixture is aluminum. No drill bushings, nothing fancy, and cost the price of a lower. So, I ordered a chunk of aluminum plate off of fleabay, and made my own fixtures. I found a print on the web for some fixture plates which allow you to clamp the forging in a vise or to the table where it is stable. The aluminum stock was around $15. I will drill holes without the use of an aluminum plate with holes thank you.
Tomorrow, if work doesn't beat all the life out of me as Mondays tend to do, I will start drilling holes in side, but for now, I will mope in front of the TV dreading Monday morning. At least I got a good start on it.
