Quickly Aligns & Positively Holds Bolts And Knobs For Welding
Any gunsmith who has ever fiddled, fussed and fumed as he tried to align a bolt knob with the cut-off stub of a military bolt handle while altering the bolt for scope mounting, will love this jig. As the illustration shows, the jig makes it possible to lock both knob and bolt in precisely the desired relationship and hold them firmly, while leaving adequate space to weld by either the acetylene or arc methods. Getting the knob and bolt into alignment used to be a real chore and, without the jig to hold it all together, one incautious movement could upset the alignment, leaving the work to be done all over again.
The jig employs a different approach to aligning the handle to the bolt by using a protractor supplied with the jig kit. Full and completely illustrated instructions are supplied with each jig set. They assure an accurate setup.
The Brownell Bolt Welding Jig will pay for itself many times over during the course of the years - not only in time but in saved dispositions! Further, it makes it possible for the man who does not have welding facilities in his shop to get the bolt all ready to weld, and then take it to a professional welding shop for the final work. If you have ever tried to explain to a non-gun-loving welder how you wanted the job done and then stood there and watched him "botch it up", the great value of the JIG to you is even more apparent!!
