That is the one I use. Got the idea from the same book.
Works great . To prevent scratching, the arms are covered with heat shrink tube.

I made mine a couple of days ago, based on the design from the Armorer's Field Guide as posted by Warthogge;

Works like this:

I couldn't find this thread - wasn't sure if I'd seen it on this forum or some other - so I created a new thread. This one has instructions and photos as to how I made it:

The tool from BHSS works superbly (and easily), and also is protective of the receiver finish-highly recommended.

Best, Jon

AFTER I disassembled my HP I realized that I needed a hammer hold back and spring compressor. The notch in the wrench compressed the spring just right while keeping the hammer pin in.

After being chided in another thread for using a padded vise grip to hold my hammer back on my first attempt to work on my HP, I looked around the loading bench and found a pretty good workaround till (if) I can get something more elegant :-)
