Any one have a MOACKS staking tool I can use or rent or have one for sale?
Why not just use a vise, a punch, and a hammer? If you're just doing one or two BCGs, its really the best way.
Nothing personal, but it would be hard to loan it to someone who has only been here a month.
That said, I have one, but the same thing can be done with a hammer and punch.
Just purchase an automatic center punch.
I found one for $3 at harbor freight.
None take-n but with that said that's why I put in rent and sale?
I will try a punch or a center punch. I'm new to the ar world...
Hold out for a MOACKS,....put a listing in the "Wanted to buy"
section of the want ads.
You can get it done with a blunt chisel, a center punch will not get it done properly.
That's what I was thinking.
I would help you out if I had one.
Why will a center punch not get it done properly? I've staked many, many bolts/nuts/bushings with a simple center punch, and never had a problem. And, I'm not just talking about ARs.
I suppose it would work to some extent.
Per the manual, the point is to displace the metal toward the fastener.
A center punch will displace the metal in a 360 degree pattern, not a concentrated area that is preferred.
True, the point is to displace material toward the fastener. However, displacement in other directions does no harm. In fact, due to the punch being so close to the edge of the material, most of the displacement will be in the desired direction.
Staking isn't a precise science. As long as there is enough friction between the two parts to reduce the possibility of movement, you're good to go. Assuming, of course, there are no other interference issues.
While I have never staked anything on an AR, I have staked a lot of stuff.
You can do it with a center punch, just place a small dimple in the desired location and then angle the punch in the direction you wish the material to be displaced.
I've seen a 350 pound woman in a bikini,.......
Just because I've seen it, that doesn't mean it was PROPER!
If someone wishes to use a center punch, great, I'm happy for you.
I'll do mine the proper way.
I've worked aircraft for 26 years,.....I know how to stake a part, but thanks for the refresher course!
Awww MAN, now I got a visual!
Let me help you with that:
That's a lot of potatoes
Dude,........that was SO wrong!
