    My personal experience is that the 5D Tactical works extremely well.
    It ain't rocket science, it's boolit science.

    Have all 3 jigs currently, prefer the Modulus Arms jig it's has some differences vs. the 5D Tac. like a refinement or version 5.2
    Use Tap magic for Aluminum, works great. for the vacuum cleaner part, check out HomeDepot or such in the plumbing dept.
    find a pvc coupler to fit the jig vacuum port. and those "chips" fly everywhere... you can't just do one..they multiply rather
    quickly. Try your hand at some 1911's fun to build, and some of the HK family.

    Thanks Rockzilla! I couldn't remember what the tapping fluid I had out there and just sat down and didn't want to get up to check!
    Tap Magic or Tapmatic not sure but a little goes a looong way, I've used it on the lathe foe super fine cuts too.
    I have a 5 D jig and like it I've used a few others that where junk (want one?) the only drawback one 5 D is the special router bit, it's $$ I did find a place to get them a bit cheaper I believe it's American gun smithing supply.
    Those chip do FLY! The last one I did I used a cheap blue tarp and cut a hole in the center and hung it over my vice, that kept the chips from going all over and when done I just wadded it all up and tossed it.
