I would assume that there aren’t a lot of monitor arms that use non-gas springs, if any. It would but somewhat unsightly, though you can cover them up.

It wouild be like this. You would need some beefy springs for it to look trustworthy holding a monitor worth hundreds of dollars.

Just a simple setup would be, in no particular order:

 

  • Vise
  • AR Tool – I have a powder coated green AR tool, forgot who makes it.
  • Screwdrivers
  • Good Lighting – Seriously, a good light source goes a long ways in the ease of building things. I have a drafting lamp very similar to this type.
  • AR Mat – Useful for putting stuff together (and cleaning of course) your AR on your desk/dinner table, so your wife or SO won’t murder you. I have this cleaning mat.
  • Roll Pin Punches – I used a set of regular punches from Lowe’s for a while, i finally got around to getting a set of actual roll pin punches on Amazon recently.
  • Small Hammer – I got this small 8-ounce hammer on Amazon. It’s perfect for use with the roll pin punches.
  • Mallet – Useful for hitting things without marring up the finish.
  • Vise Block – I use a Magpul Bev block for work on my lower or upper. Waiting for the next Geissele sale so i can snag a Geissele Super Reaction Rod to replace the Bev block on upper work.
  • Allen Wrenches – I have this set of 3 hex-torx allen wrenches. Super handy for rails and other mount screws. Might also want a long handle set if you use a hex screw for your pistol grip like i do.
  • Torque Wrench – I have this Tekton torque wrench for barrels nuts, castle nuts (if you do torque yours, i don’t usually), and whatever else needs to be torqued.
  • Torque Screwdriver Kit – I have this Wheeler Torque Wrench/Screwdriver set, super handy for screws that require a certain torque spec.

 

That’s what i can think of off the top of my head, you probably won’t need all of that if you only plan on building a lower first. It’ll be useful down the line to get most of those tools, but i’d go with first:

  • AR tool
  • Bev Block/Vise Blocks/Reaction Rod
  • Roll Pin Punches
  • Vise

If you have Amazon Prime, there’s quite a bit of stuff you can get on there, it’s where i got most of my tools.
