Tools used in the 80% Arms Easy Jig video
Using the 80% Arms easy jig is not tricky. However, there are several tools and consumables that we used in our 80% Arms Easy Jig Video. In this article, we give you a list of the tools and consumables (cutting fluid).
In our video, we showed you step by step how to complete an 80% AR lower using the the Easy Jig Gen 2. However, there are some tools that you will need beyond the jig that you will need to purchase separately. We used a drill press in our video, but you can use a corded drill. If you are not using a drill press, we highly recommend that you purchase the drill stabilizers for the side plates.
