    After cleaning up my material store, i found a nice piece of Alu. It was very small and so i decided for
    a PFS.
    Hope you like it.

    Great job done on that - perfectly polished!

    (and you found a perfectly contrasting
    place to make a photo of that)

    Well done!

    Thanx to all

    The rough shape was made with a bandsaw. After that i used an angle grinder,a file,lot of sandpaper and many time for polishing.

    ....my first thought was, Oh my God slingpit must be an alien, five finger groves on the handle. The man has six fingers....:D

    No, seriously, great job, I love this little shooter and the finish, I wish I could polish and work with aluminum like you do.

    First i´ve say thanx to all.

    Working with Alu is not a miracle. For me it´s easier than working with wood.:rolleyes:
    For the polish i´m using Autosol on a felt disk and a drill. There are two kind of Autosol. One especial for Alu, but this does not take away the marks like the metal polish.

    And yes. i´m an Alien. Sometimes my wife calls me in such a way, but i don´t know why.

    Hi Arturo,
    Thank you very much.
    You know, that PFS shooting is not my speciality.
    I´ll give it in the right hands for PFS shooting.
    (cause of the six fingers):D
