    Broaching a Wrench

The first three sets of these eccentric axle wrenches were lathe-turned and carefully profile milled using the rotary table, then the wrench head was drilled and the hex-shape flats were filed by hand. Our gunsmithing trade school taught us HOW to do this work, but my goodness, the filing time alone, on this tedious task, was 2 hours each! Yeeeow. We ordered a broach and a large arbor-press to drive it. Each wrench still takes almost three hours to make, but not 5.
