    Can anyone help me identify this item. It came from a gunsmiths shop that I purchased. I have been working on guns for over 15 years and never seen a jig like this one. Thanks, Mark

    I don't, but that isn't saying much.

    I have a jig in the shop kinda like that I picked up somewhere years ago, and I don't have a clue what it was made for either.

    I just kept it in the "possibles junque" as it looked like I could eventually modify it and use it for something. Never found out what yet though.

    Your guy might have thought he could make a receiver drilling jig out of it or something, and just never got a Round-Tuit either.

    Looks like a machining fixture. The silver slab with T-slots gets clamped down on the mill table and squared up, the black pieces are clamps to hold the work piece.

    Not gospel, just a guess.

    I don't think it is task specific jig. The features seem to lend themselves to adjustability to fit multiple purposes. Or in other words, a general purpose holding device.

    Thanks for the input. I have a few more mystery objects that I will post pictures of to get advice. Thanks, Mark

    Not a bolt welding jig, is it?

    I thought about that.

    I see it has two centering points in the front two clamps spaced about right to hold a bolt.

    But the rest of them are either badly out of position to hold the bolt handle?

    Or he did a lot of Mannlicher-Schönauer bolts. :D

    Just throw it out, and about an hour after the trash is picked up, someone will send you the exact purpose for the jig. Works for me every time. :neener:

    Well, one thing for sure. It cannot be used to convert a Chevy Powerglide shifter to work with a Turbo 350 tranny.

    Well, I've been holding out. Just wanted to see if anyone else knew before I spilled the beans. That is another Power Custom product (no longer offered as far as I know). It is a sort of universal sight jig that was designed with revolvers in mind. It appears to be missing some pieces.
