    Happy sat morning !
    I thought I’d pop this in the microwave and see what it comes out like
    Easy recipe
    Bocote
    Aluminum
    G 10
    spacing material
    Just throw it in the microwave right 25 minutes should be good
    Microwave box says it will help shape you so that means It will sand it shape it probably have to do my own polishing

      Ok out side playing catch with Xena and Nugget and have this sinking feeling in my stomach did I put the green spacer with the G 10 or did I mess up and put it with the wood and put the brown spacer with the G 10 bad feeling :(
      Is what it is just kept playing catch with the dogs figured the Glooze already setting up
      Xena , The warrior princess this is a border collie and she is 15 or 16 years old . Last five years been pretty rough on her she lost all of her hair got really skinny we figured it was her time then when I got her here I put her on
      DinOvite
      Now in 1 1/2 months she is got all of her hair back and she is playing catch 3 to 4 times a day running 50 yards every time
      When she got here she couldn’t run at all her legs were like she had epilepsy it was funny to watch her try to run
      Mined u she sleeps The rest of the time if we’re not playing catch

      Epoxy is going to take extra time it’s 35° I have it under a heater but it’s still cold didn’t quite set up in the hour but it’s almost there so I’ll give it a couple I am in no hurry
      O ya I put the spacers in correctly :)

      I hope you are using the inside microwave to warm Xena's Dinosaur bbq and not that nasty shop thing!
      She deserves the best. Just ask her!
      Oh - glad you got the stack in the proper order for the glue up!

      I think you took it out of the microwave too soon, you wanna nuke that for about 30 minutes.

      Cool build along, Clint!!

      Now comes the hard part for me the forks I need to have a fork sitting on my microwave
      Grip is just right just needs finish love
      Fork height and length now when I got this pocket predator frame I threw some banding material wrap around the handle and band it up and shot it and did real good it’s seem to push the band out another quarter inch or so and made my alignment much nicer so I am going to use that fork alignment angle on a little foot frame that fits my hand because the pocket predator is way too wide
      So with that being said I really do not want to drill holes in it because I don’t shoot anything with holes I would just soon wrap and tuck this frame is going so nice I would hate to mess it up over some grooves over for some band ties Lol i’ll do what old men to best sit here and look at it and think and then make my move
      Think I could of gone skinnier but I only plan on shooting 1 inch non-tapered butterfly bands off of it heavy duty shooting if it all works out nice I’ll make one that’s even skinnier and smaller for a smaller ammo this is 7/8” thick so far !

      See how my knuckle is lined up with the tip of the slingshot things start happening real good for me when I get that alignment and the extra length makes my shoulder drawl length and wrist all lined up right I think ?

      Now if I can just find the fork settings on this microwave I should be done
