    I want to notch a choke tube so my Briley wrench will work with it. The tube has no notches, any good ideas on how to do this?

    Buy a friction wrench. They do a nicer job anyway.

    I suggested the Dremel which is what i'd use if i really wanted to do this. However, i agree with "Remstar311". They make choke tube wrenches for all tubes. A new wrench would be cheaper to buy than replacing a botched choke tube. If you go for it measure measure measure and cut once. Make sure to smooth those edges up.

    </center>It's a real project to get 4 notches the right size exactly 90ยบ apart with a Dremel.

    Friction wrench works great.

    Take it to a local machine shop. Should be a 5 minute job on a mill w/ a rotary. It'll take longer to setup that it will to cut the slots...
