    Yes I'm still wasting my time with PVC ;)
    I was trying to make ergonomic and comfortable finger support frame.
    Real comfortable and easy to shoot.

    I'm not seeing any waste of time here! This is a really unique design and great work with the PVC!

    So, was that carved from a sheet/block of PVC? Or did you melt down the PVC into a form you could use? I like the design.

    Neat looking little thing! Was the twist in the frame built into it as part of the design/manufacturing process or did it come about of it's own accord at a later time?

    It was made out of 1/2 inch pvc sheet. I cut the shape out then heated and formed the twists to fit the hand, finished shaping with files and sandpaper.
    Thanks.

    This does not look like wasting time, this looks really cool… :D

    But one question, are the groves for tying bands on the wrong side? (Pic 3):rolleyes:

    They are on the wrong side. I did it so when i get a fork hit it would not cut the tying bands, happened to me few times. I have lots to learn about how to shoot ;)

    Certainly looks good to me.

    Been playing with a super simple PVC rifle type design where the forks were cut out of a piece of 4" PVC pipe. Waiting for tools I ordered to arrive, but it will never look as finished, polished as yours does now.
    I think PVC has a lot of potential, lacking only the finished grain that you can get with wood.

    Thanks.
    It's hard to pretty up a PVC, but otherwise it's good material that is easy to work with. I use it to try out new designs.

    It's unique, very nice! PVC, yet another material I wouldn't have thought to use.
