Got mine in the mail today and it looks fantastic! Haven't used it yet but I have no doubt it will work better than my scissors. Thanks!

Sent you a PM..

Jbird22 wrote:UPDATED 3/5: I'm caught up and have started another list! PM me if interested. I have updated the spacer model so the wad sits atop the spacer rather than the spacer dropping inside the wad. Here are the models available:

Image

1. VP90 1/2 - Slits are 1/2 the height of shot cup - $12 TYD
2. VP90 1/8 - Slits are 1/8" above the shot cup - $12 TYD
3. VP90 CMB - It's basically the same jig as the VP90 1/2 just a tad taller to accommodate the spacer for also making 1/8" slits - $15 TYD
4. CSD - For the CSD wad - $12 TYD

If buying more than one, take $2 off each additional jig.

Mine is still working great. I did go to the hardware store and get a brass bushing to slip over it to give it more strength and at the perfect height for my cuts.
I had heard of folks breaking the plastic petals off, so thought I would give it more backbone.

For those who had theirs break, please PM me. There are occasions where the layers don't laminate properly.

Awesome! Glad you like it!

Guys, the plan is to start back making them mid-late July. I'll update the post when I get started back. I've updated the design of the VP90 1/8" jig to be a little "beefier" toward the bottom 1/3 or so of the fingers. A few of the last to go out were the new design and so far so good. If the trend continues I plan on updating the VP90 1/2 and CSD jigs as well. I'm always thinking of ways to tweak them.
