    The profile of these wrenches accomodates the small boss on the bottom of the Dan Coonan receivers. These were designed to be used with either 3/4 or 1/2-inch breaker bars, plus they include two thru-holes for attachment of a home-made handle, or for bolting to a work bench. Firmly fixed to a work bench, the open-end wrench method may be used for barrel installation without the need for a large bench vise.

    These wrenches have slots in the top half. It makes the fit of the wrench to the receiver more flexible and universal.

    They are made from high-carbon hot-rolled steel. Available only in the white. Purchasers will want to add some type of protective finish: cold blue, paint, park, etc. I keep the cost down by not adding a finish.

    Buy both the vise and the base. With this setup, no need for a large bench vise.

    Vise base is steel, 3/8" thick. Add to your barrel vise.

    Posted an "I'll take it" for a combo set + base plate on FALfiles, then emailed you with a slight change.

    - just a heads up.

    Thanks.
