I reworked my bending jig from the original that i thought was a bit too big to this smaller version. The stock is 1/4" aluminum that is cold bent. I really like the size, look and feel of the new one even though it isn't finished yet, what do you think? Also i know that some don't like shooting tubes, but this is sure a quick and easy way to attach bands and I'm just out to have fun anyway. Sorry for the photo quality.
