    Drew this up and printed it out the other day in PETG (What they make coke bottles out of)
    100mmOD, 30mm tall. (3.94" x 1.18") Feels indestructible to me and a whole 1kg roll of PETG only costs $30 so I'm way ahead on buying one. :cool: dec28b6d0c3bdf79cf1252abf336efca_preview_featured.jpg

    Sam we could use your CAD skills. Rhino 5 3D is killing us. We're struggling to draw flat stuff

    Man I've forgotten most of what I used to know when I was playing with "real" CAD like AutoCAD and PTC Prodesktop. All I really use for now is TinkerCAD. Haven't found the time to sit down and learn myself up on FreeCAD yet. Never had any dealings with Rhino.

    They definitely have their uses. Even made barrel vise bushing, going to see how that works. May not have to buy aluminum tube next time I need one.

    I bought a green nylon bench block from Brownells several years back. I never imagined how much that I would use it. I mostly punch pins out with it but sometimes I just need something to level up a gun on the table while drilling or putting screws in.I have made wood jigs for working on stocks, but when I grab a brass hammer and steel punch, I have to have my bench block. Have fun..
