Q: How many 80% Lowers can I complete with my 80 Lower Jig?
A: You should capable of making well over a dozen lowers with the parts supplied with the Jig. If you need to make more than that we offer replacement pieces to be able to make as many as you want without needing to replace your entire jig.

Q: Can I use a hand drill to complete my 80% Lower Receiver?
A: You could... but it would be obscenely slow. We always recommend using a drill press and drilling one side at time.

Q: How long will my Solid Carbide End Mill last?
A: The end mill will outlast the jig if used properly. It will break well before it will wear out. Modulus Arms as well as many customers have completed dozens of lowers with a single end mill. The end mill can break if the process is rushed or the instructions are not followed.

Q: Is there anything special about the end mill needed? Will my [insert end mill] work on your jig?
A: The Speedmills last 4-5 lowers on average, but can last many more if properly taken care of. The key to longer endmill life is taking slow shallow passes, and using a lot of lubrication. The faster and deeper you go, the faster your bits will wear out!

Q: What router should I use?
A: We recommend the FST-1 Router which was designed specifically for milling out 80% lowers.

If you already have a router, the following will work as well: Dewalt DWP611, Craftsman 28212, Ridgid R24012, Makita RT0701C, Porter Cable PCE6435, Dewalt D26670 and Porter Cable 7310. Harbor Freight and Black and Decker have been known to have poor results, we would avoid these brands. There are many that will work and the important thing is that is has a 1/4" chuck and has variable speed control. For more information check this link.

Q: What speed setting should I adjust my router to?
A: Each router is different. We recommend a setting  of "5" or towards the middle for most routers.  You should start slow and ramp it up until it feels smooth and relatively easy to move. Take your time. You will know when it is right.

Q: What's the best way to mill with the router?
A: You should always start in an open hole without touching any material. This is why you drill the holes. You are very likely to break the end mill if you start touching a side or turn the router on before you place it into the jig. The router should never be spinning when pulling it out or putting it into the jig. When the router is fully up to speed in the jig you should first try to join all the drill holes taking small semicircular cuts trying to cut with the side rather than the front of the end mill. Continue doing this until all the holes are joined. When they are joined go around the larger hole you created until you are touching the template.

Q: My router isn't cutting very well, what is wrong?
A: Check to make sure aluminum isn't clogged in the end mill. You should check after each pass or if you hear an audible change in the noise or feel of the router. Use more cutting fluid. Attach a shop vac and suck out the chips as you cut them. Check to make sure you did not break the teeth off your end mill. Take shallower depth of cuts. Slow down or speed up the router speed.

Q: Why is my jig different than the pictures on the website?
A: The jigs are being updated and changed from time to time to make them more accurate and easier to use. The pictures on the website are not updated right away. You may have a newer version jig.
