Homemade turret spacer templates

Post  Bobafan on Fri Jan 09, 2009 2:17 pm

These are templates for the spacers I have lately been using for my turreted nite finders. Whenever I wanted to make one, I would need to get out the compass, make a sketch, etc. So I made these with a geometry program. They are the right size to just print off and use.

These templates are meant to be used with cpvc. I use a 5/8" forstner bit to drill the holes.

8 barrel version



6 barrel version




When you finish, it should be something like this.



I can make templates for different numbers of barrels if there is a demand.

Beautiful, thank you. I have always had trouble aligning turret barrels. These will be very useful.

Did you make that out of a plastic of some sort. Cool, nice job, very clean.

Is it sturdy? Also, would you recommend using it for projects?

It does look good though.

It works well, but using polycarbonate sheet would be cheaper and easier to get. I had Sintra for an unrelated project which needed a hard materiel which can be curved etc. Sintra has the unique ability to be formed after being heated it boiling water.

That could be useful then. You could make the gun's shell into any form with something like that.

It would be exceedingly difficult to shape the materiel with that level of detail. I have tried.

Damn. That took out my dreams in one foul swing. I had a plan for a P90, but that won't happen now.
