- Not the best jig on the market
- I bought this jig from my buddy who never used it. The fatal flaw with this jig is that there's nothing bridging the bottom and only 2 little cap screws hold everything in place. When you tighten the jig into the vise on the table of my milling machine, the sides deflect in from the squeeze. If you try to tighten the vise less to try to minimize the deflection, the entire jig and lower assembly will move around in the vise while you're trying to mill. I ruined my first lower last night because of the inability to clamp this thing solid to the table.
- Nice jig, missing screws
- I got the jig, about to use it, but there were no screws included. I should be able to scrounge some up. The jig looks pretty nice so far.
- Check the specs first before you start.
- I bought the jig and 5 lowers quite a while ago. When I finally got around to using it, I completed all 5 lowers only to find the jig to be out of specification specifically at the safety selector hole. Every safety selector turned out to be 7-8 degrees crooked. It made functional lowers but I was disappointed with the unprofessional look of the safety selector. It may have been an isolated incident, but if you buy this, check that everything is in spec first. Comparing it to other jigs, I can see the the error very clearly now.
- This simply works and is easy, especially with a drillpress and router!
I bought this jig a while back. It has now done 8 lowers. I did 2 using this jig on a vertical mill which wasn't terribly hard. I did a .308 from another manufacturer using the TM 308 sideplates (that I had to modify to fit) with these top plates using a drill press and router. 5 more were made by friends and relatives that I instructed and oversaw using the drill press and router method.
I found people that have experience using hand tools take between 2 to 2.5 hours machining using the drillpress and router method. All of them turned out very well. The drill/router method is a huge game-changer as you don't need to find someone with a mill that will let you use it, nor is the expense there. If you can run a drill press and a laminate router, you can do this.
The only problem I had was a couple of guys weren't holding the router tightly and when it jumped, they let go, and it buggered up the TM1002 profile plate. I will need to order a new one.
- Easier than you think
I used TM's jig to complete 4 80% lowers. I used a drill press and an end mill to complete the process. Each one took aprox 60 min to complete from start to finish. With this jig you only have to worry about the depth of each cut. The rest was paint-by-colors easy. So easy I ordered 4 more of their gen 2's to complete next. Should take only half the time since the rear lug is already cut out. Prior to this, I have zero machining experience.
