    A set of V blocks. A flat surface and a Height gauge. OR a mill, vise, and a scratch awl in the chuck.

    Draw the design you need on a piece of paper and glue it to the tube. Set it up in "V" blocks and mill out the hole. Those older Sten kits use to come with a layout sheet that was glued to the tube. You might try https://archive.org/details/Sten_MkI...Bond_Blueprint There is a lot of information in Google.

    Are you building a real-deal open bolt, full auto Sten? I've always admired how utilitarian these things are. I had a friend who built one from one of those kits ages ago. I never fired it or saw it shoot, but it was pretty cool to handle. I have always sort of wanted to build one but would never bother with the NFA stuff required to do so. Do post pictures!
