      Well, I'd say Yes and No.
      Yes, it has PFS fork width and gap.
      No, the hold is more like a hybrid hammer/pinch grip, and it has more heft than a PFS.

      How do you all cut those nice vertical grooves in the target side of the Conus pattern. Router tables?

      Nothing better than watching the master at work. Arturo has a complete build series on his YouTube channel.

      Note the attention to safety. Arturo is wearing safety glasses! We love you Arturo, but the angle grinder with a saw blade just looks down right dangerous.

      I do use the pipe sanding method to make the groove on my builds.

      Yeah, those things scare me in general for just about any use. Too much uncontrolled power, and those discs break with shards going in any direction.
      The rod sanding is certainly doable with patience, but I'm still thinking round router bit, rip right through at a proper depth, and then pattern out the rest from the groove.

      Hand saws and files for mine. Sometimes when I'm impatient I use a hand-held belt sander I rig up on its side mounted on my workmate table. The center groove is a wooden dowel wrapped with sandpaper
