Nice clean design.

Can it reach the lower rivet for a triangle sidefolder?
Is the cross shaft heat treated?
Yes. You can extended the rivet pressing arm to reach the rear rivets in underfolder and side folding rear trunnions. The center ram is 1.250 diameter and make of tool steel, they are very well build and fit. The base plate is over 5/8" think and heavy!

Here is what our supplier said about the material...

"Hardened Steel- Made from hardened steel 4140 alloy steel. Core Rockwell hardness is 47-58 (surface hardness is RC 60)."

None of the kits I've seen from Russia have domed rivets. They're all flat on the inside.

this is a nice looking jig. I think I'll buy one.

Every one of my Ruski PLO kits and Hungarian Kits have had rounded inside rivets.
