Response to Thanks Ed.

I used an eye bolt made from 5/8" rod.........

1. I originally used an eye bolt made from 1/2" rod but the loop tended to open up with pressure, plus the eye wouldn't slip over my muzzle break.

2. The eye bolt in the pic of the "tweaker" has a Delrin "shoe" that's slipped inside the loop around the barrel before tightening the screw....

The purpose of this "shoe" is to spread the bending load so the barrel doesn't get a "kink" at the bend point and to prevent "scuffing up" the barrel finish. With the "tweaker" it's easy to position the loop so that an "excess bend" can be reduced since the bending point is always at the same point. I do have a couple "positioning holes" but so far I've always used the "mid point hole".

3. The "wood" is made from construction grade generic 2x4s.
