Also, the jig is for tacking only , right?. I know if you weld with that jig out of sequence, that receiver will warp. Just my 2 cents.
The welds are rough ground at this point, I will use a finer grit when it is time to do final finishing. the receiver will be abrasive blasted to give an even finish before parkerizing.
Yes the jig is to align and tack the sections, if properly welded it will not warp.
What kind of jig do you use for welding yours? Did yours warp?
